About Sophia

Having lived in Santa Cruz since 1970 I bring my love of the area and passion for Real Estate to Bailey Properties. After graduating from Aptos High and UC Berkeley I spent over a decade as a professional firefighter prior to embarking on a career in Real Estate. I bring my negotiating and problem solving skills as well as my hard work ethic to the team.  With 20 years personal experience in local residential investment and development I'm enthusiastic about helping others get the most out of this beautiful place we call home.  I'm knowledgeable in home staging, marketing, construction and local ordinances.  I was raised in La Selva Beach and have lived throughout the county. In 1998 I settled in Bonny Doon where I currently reside.  My greatest joy and challenge comes from raising my two daughters, Haley and Brooke.  As an organic Viticulturist and gardener, I'm familiar with Santa Cruz's varied micro-climates and geological diversity.  In my spare time I enjoy hiking, water sports and yoga.
