This lovely 3 Bed, 1.5 Bath condo was owned by our client for 17 years. She weighed her options and was finally able to sell her Soquel Knolls home to pursue retirement. Through our negotiations, we upped the sale to $45,000 above any previous deals in Soquel Knolls. In fact, it was sold for 6.6 percent above any other past sale in Soquel Knolls history!
We spent a great deal of time with our client redecorating, decluttering and rehanging artwork to get her property picture perfect. It was well worth it, and we’re so incredibly happy for her as she starts her new chapter in life!

Brooke's knowledge and skills will help you stage your house to maximum effect! As a team, they are fantastic. If we sound over-the-top in our accolades, it is because we are so pleased with what they have done for us. Clearly, hands down--go with the Hinchmans. You will be as pleased as us!"
Our client in Santa Cruz had run through the gamut of real estate teams for several years trying to sell his beachfront property. He’d grown tired of managing the beachfront property on his own. But he’d run into so many challenges and frustrations with the process and lack of progress that he nearly gave up – that is, until he met us.
We sold his gorgeous property at a record price, at $3,519 per square foot – the highest dollar per square foot of any home ever sold (not on acreage) in the City of Santa Cruz. We were thrilled to take this home and this frustrated seller and provide him with the service, the results and the equity he deserved.
"I had an unusual property to sell. They absorbed the details, worked with me on figuring out pricing and strategy, and marketed it extremely well. Most importantly, all of their advice on preparing the property for the optimal selling process to find a buyer who was a good fit was absolutely spot on. I'm thankful they were involved and that I took their advice. They also listened to my particular interests beyond just getting the best price (e.g. allowing a tenant to stay on the property through the transaction)."

Sometimes a sale is less about earning the right amount of equity and more about making sure we make the right kind of deal for our clients.
The seller at this gorgeous La Selva Beach rental property had a special connection with her tenants, who were helping her maintain her successful AirBnB business. The tenants also owned several farm animals that the seller worried would be displaced if she sold her property.
We found the perfect buyer who put our client’s worries at ease and agreed to not only buy the property at a great price, but to keep the current tenants. This was the result of our tuning into our client’s very honorable wishes – we’re so glad we could make it happen!
"Kasey and Brooke helped me sell a unique family property for substantially above asking price, helped me navigate an established tenant and made the whole process go smoothly. I live out of state so it was amazing to be able to put my trust in them!"
Our connections are our greatest asset. The clients who purchased this beautiful Santa Cruz home wanted to scoop up a unit in Walnut Commons – but the initial unit they had their eyes on sold quickly with multiple offers.
After a little digging and asking around our exclusive network, we were able to find our clients an unlisted unit for purchase that wasn’t even listed. They were able to circumnavigate a highly competitive market and land them in the home of their dreams.
"How blessed we were to be working with Kasey and Brooke. Through their creative thinking, positive approach, calm assurance and commitment to excellence, they brought the transaction together and helped make our dream come true.."
We worked extensively with the seller at this home to prepare for their sale. We carefully curated a staged look by selecting a few key pieces of their own furniture and artwork. By utilizing their unique items, and with some strategic improvements to the home, we were able to showcase this home’s brightest assets and give it the coastal vibe we knew it was capable of.
This home sold with multiple offers for $2,500,000 – that’s a cool $525,000 over the asking price. We attribute the success of this sale to the heart and intentionality we took in the staging process to make this happen.
"I can't express how incredible Kasey & Brooke are. This is my second time using them for the purchase of a new home and sale of my existing. I trusted them completely and with their help we made some flooring, hardware and appliance changes to the old house and used an incredible home stager to prepare for the market. We are in escrow on the old house (well over asking) all because I knew I could trust their guidance. Cannot recommend them enough and I will continue to use them in future real estate endeavors."
