About Sebastian

I ALREADY HAVE A BUYER FOR YOUR HOME! In addition to the (literally) thousands of prospective purchasers in my database, I work with a number of specialized investors who will buy any property, any time - so if you're ready to move tomorrow, I'll get you an offer today! I was first licensed in 2003, and obtained my broker's license in 2005. I've received numerous awards and accolades over the course of my career, and I'm a top-producing REALTOR, easily in the top 5% of sales in my MLS region. I've served as the President of my local Association of REALTORS, as well as a Director of the California Association of REALTORS. Before I got into real estate, I was in the software / InfoTech consulting industry, which gives me an enormous leg up on my competition when it comes to marketing real estate in the digital age. Why should you choose to work with me? I'll give you three reasons! 1) I will sell your home for the highest price possible. I offer Concierge Services which help sellers get their homes into tip-top shape for the market, with NO CASH OUT OF POCKET and with as little or as much direction from the home owner as you want. Your home will be every inch the belle of the ball - you might not even want to move when we're done buffing it out fo sale! 2) I will sell your home FAST. My marketing program is designed to sell your home in 7-14 days on market. And that's perfect, because statistically speaking, homes which are on the market 7-14 days before going under contract sell for the very highest prices (I've crunched the numbers, and that's the sweet spot). 3) I care about YOU I haven't even met you yet, but if you choose to work with me to get your home sold, I want you to know that I will care for you like I care for my family. By choosing to work with me, you're putting an enormous degree of TRUST into me, to sell what may be your most prized (or at least most valuable) possession. I do NOT take that for granted, and put my everything into making sure that YOU have the absolute best representation and service possible. I work in the Los Gatos office of Compass, which is far and away the top real estate brokerage in Silicon Valley. I closed my own brokerage I'd operated for 7+ years to go to work with Compass, because I saw that they offer a set of tools, services, and an unrivaled network of buyers, agents, and other professionals, which help me deliver OUTSTANDING results for my clients.

Michael Bloch
Sereno Group
About Michael

My goal in working with clients is to develop long-term relationships and earn their referrals and repeated business by being their trusted Real Estate adviser. I have built my business one client at a time through a combination of hard work, honesty, and focus on ethics and professionalism. Extraordinary customer service is a top priority to me. I work aggressively and diligently behind the scenes to negotiate favorable terms for my clients and solve any challenges that come up during the process of buying or selling property. By breaking down the process into simple and clear steps, my goal is for my clients to have a smooth and pleasant experience. For me, the greatest satisfaction is when I am able to assist a client in accomplishing their goals and home dreams. My first career as a local elementary school teacher and now, a Realtor, has allowed me to take that same passion for helping others into my real estate career. I pride myself on my communication and listening skills. Outstanding customer service is my absolute top priority. I am a realtor by trade, a native Californian, and have been a resident of Santa Cruz since ’91. My wife Alissa and I live in the Pleasure Point neighborhood of east Santa Cruz. We are the proud parents of a growing family, Bowen and Judah, and we enjoy all types of sports and outdoor activities – surfing, hiking, backyard BBQs, and Giants games are amongst our favorites. Soy bilingüe y estoy orgulloso de ofrecer mis servicios a clientes que hablan español.

When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Rio del Mar?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.
