Profile picture of Shiri Gradek


Thoroughness, clear communication and client care are at the core of my real estate business and hold true in every aspect of my life. Buying and selling a home can be a complicated process and you want a trusted advisor in your corner to help navigate the way. A Santa Cruz County resident since 1998, I am an active volunteer/leader for numerous community organizations and have a proven track record of building strong and lasting relationships with clients, a passion for customer service, creative problem-solving skills and project management expertise. I currently live on the West Side of Santa Cruz, but have had the privilege of living in San Lorenzo Valley, Aptos, East Side Santa Cruz and Downtown Santa Cruz - giving me first-hand knowledge and insight to unique neighborhoods in this beautiful region.

“I sincerely believe we would not have gotten our house if we hadn't been lucky enough to have Shiri as our realtor and guide. She quickly connected us to our lender. Her response time to all level of details was lightning fast. She is supportive and will advocate for you without a hint of pressure.”

“I am in awe of how much goes into selling a home, and of how easy Shiri made the process for me. My home was in contract after only 7 days on the market and escrow closed less than one month after listing. Asking Shiri Gradek to be the selling agent for my home was the best decision I made!”

We could not have imagined a better advocate. She asks the right questions and kept us well  informed all along the way. Her style is straight forward, honest, empathetic and highly effective! Her knowledge and respect of Real Estate Standards of Practice gave us confidence. We had some particularly unusual circumstances with the sale of our home and Shiri was creative in brainstorming with us, helping us to choose strategies and understand our options!”
