More of the Banana Belt, an East Santa Cruz neighborhood

The streets are generally wider and you will find a wide variety of homes here built in the 20's 30's and 40's. There are some really cool Craftsman bungalows and probably one of the largest collection of nice smaller architecturally interesting homes in Santa Cruz. You will find streets here such as Branciforte, Morrissey, Marnell, Parnell, San Juan, Stanford, Chilverton, and some others. This a great place to live and enjoy old architecture. Good freeway access and a nice quiet area. I generally consider this area to be bounded by Soquel, the freeway, Morrissey Avenue and Park. I consider the Santa Cruz side of Morrissey to be the Branciforte area and have it listed under East Side Santa Cruz homes. To search in the Eastside Santa Cruz area, click here.

Customer Reviews

"Are you looking for a place to purchase in Santa Cruz? Call Gregg. He is a true professional, and he makes you feel like you are his only client. He is available at the drop of a hat to show a property on your schedule, and his website is easy to use. My husband and I just purchased a condo in Santa Cruz with the help of Gregg. I do not have much experience with real estate, but I have a lot of experience with customer service. The attention we received from Gregg during this process was top-notch. He knows so much about everything pertaining to the housing market, the Santa Cruz County area real estate inventory, the pros and cons of the types of properties and the areas they are in. When looking at homes, he noticed and pointed out the flaws and the benefits for every property. He is personally acquainted with most realtors in town, which helps when showing homes. He followed up with us routinely, answered and returned every single call promptly, and made thorough and thoughtful recommendations. He made suggestions during the lending process that were so helpful. When we closed on our property, timing of our move was and issue, and Gregg offered his truck and other accommodations to help the transition. Gregg uses his experience to help a buyer every single step of the way. If you DO MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION and call Gregg, listen and follow his advice through the process. YOU CAN TRUST he is acting for you and that he truly has your best interests in mind."
