Sarah Shirley: Marketing Assistant
I was born and raised right here in Santa Cruz County and cannot imagine living anywhere else. I feel fortunate to have grown up in Santa Cruz, taking full advantage of the local activities and experiences our town has to offer.
In 2014 I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Biopsychology from the University of California in Santa Barbara. After graduating I worked as a Paraeducator at an elementary school in Santa Barbara. I learned a lot through working with children with autism and cerebral palsy. My biggest takeaway was that I had a knack and enjoyed working with people and learned that I love making others feel special.
When Shemeika began looking for a Marketing Assistant, she knew that I would be perfect. She knew that I would be excited to learn, a focused worker, and someone who cares deeply about this community and the people who live in it. My commitment to making others feel special, my knowledge of Santa Cruz County, and my dedication to going above and beyond to get a job done, sets me apart.
Lauren Valk Wills: Buyer’s Assistant
Lauren is a people-person through-and-through and loves to network, bringing people and their common interests and goals together. Before becoming a Realtor in 2016, Lauren was a land use attorney representing various public agencies throughout Santa Cruz County and the State of California. She made the switch to real estate after 8 years of practice because she wanted a more personal and vibrant connection with her clients, and to be out of the office engaging with the community on a daily basis. Lauren was born and raised in Los Angeles and moved to the Bay Area in 1998 to attend college at UC Berkeley and law school at University of San Francisco. Looking to live in a place where residents value community and the natural environment, she settled in Santa Cruz in 2013. Lauren lives with her husband and two young children on Santa Cruz’s lower westside and enjoys daily trips to the beach, walks along West Cliff and Bethany Curve, and bike rides to Wilder Ranch. In her spare time, Lauren makes fresh wreaths for family and friends. She also enjoys competing in triathlons. Lauren took a break when she had her children and she is looking forward to returning to triathlons when her kids are a little older.
