About Me

A native Californian whose family were pioneers in the central valley, Jo-Ann came to Santa Cruz on summer vacations and very early on decided to stay. She has a Master’s from UC Berkely and her background includes early childhood education, fine arts and business management. Jo-Ann has over 25 years of real estate experience.
The recipient of numerous awards over the years, Jo-Ann feels that her strength is in giving her clients vision and converting it to something tangible. “You take an idea and it becomes concrete—you can see the visible results.” She credits her grandfather for fostering her love of architecture and homes. I love being able to focus on my clients’ needs and take on a partnership during the sometimes arduous process of buying or selling a home. I have a real commitment to my clients. “Buying a home impacts the community and people’s lives. It’s personal. The DL team knows that. It’s extraordinary. I feel lucky to be here.”
