Moving you forward on your journey
Hey there! My name is Shawndy Linquist, and I’m a REALTOR in Santa Cruz, California.
Not your average REALTOR
Buying or selling a house shouldn’t be a boring endeavor—it’s a major life decision! I help people balance their real-estate experience into the bigger picture of their lives. I listen, take an interest in my clients’ lives, get to know them, and the lifestyle they see themselves living. I find the best ways to help them achieve this.
An exceptional realtor should be more than a professional relationship, they should be a friend. I take a different approach by treating you as a human being, and understanding your wants and needs with empathy. I chose this profession because it allows me to connect with other people—building relationships and partnerships that last a lifetime.
As a skilled negotiator who always wants the best for my clients, I go the extra mile to ensure that they get the best prices possible. When it comes to getting the word out about your home, I’ve experimented with dozens of marketing strategies, so I know what works and what doesn’t. Having successfully sold hundreds of homes during my career, you can trust my expertise when you’re looking to buy or sell.
I grew up in Santa Cruz, then left in my mid-20's to Breckenridge, Colorado. After living in Colorado for a period of time, I eventually settled on the coast of North Carolina in the Wilmington area. While there, I practiced real estate full-time for 15 years. The people, the culture, and the quality of life were incredible. I had a very successful career as a REALTOR, and was a top producing broker. I am currently a licensed real estate agent in both North Carolina and California.
I've been extremely fortunate to live in some of the most beautiful places in the country, but nowhere compares to living where my roots were, back in Santa Cruz, . It feels amazing to be back home! I’m in love with the Santa Cruz area, and as someone who loves adventure, camping, hiking, and the outdoors, it’s perfect.
Immersing myself in nature helps deepen my connection with the planet and people in my life. It is my life’s mission to help people achieve the life they seek, helping add more consciousness on the planet. I do this by forging powerful relationships with everyone I meet, allowing me to positively contribute to society and humanity.
I'm married to a USMC veteran. I have two children, and my oldest is attending UCLA. Spending time with my family, traveling, and being in the outdoors are my greatest joys.
