Welcome to Community Real Estate! We are family-owned and operated real estate brokerage specializing in Scotts Valley and the surrounding mountain communities. Our family – The Draper Family – has been practicing real estate in Scotts Valley since 1976 and has over 60 years of combined experience. There is no other brokerage, agent or team that knows Scotts Valley real estate better than the Drapers.

In 2016 we founded Community Real Estate with one goal in mind (and it is not total sales volume). Our primary goal is your success. We have your best interests at heart at all times. To us a successful transaction is achieved only when all parties involved are truly happy with the outcome. This is how Community Real Estate helps build a thriving Scotts Valley community.

We live, work and play here. Our children attend the local schools and play at the local parks and athletic fields. We care deeply about our community and all of the members we share it with. That is why we have made giving back the cornerstone of our company. Community Real Estate donates a portion of every commission earned to help teachers pay for classroom supplies. Every year we sponsor local athletic teams and community fundraising efforts. Bee Fruitful Farms, our 6 acre eco-friendly learning farm, is our special passion project. We host children of all ages (let’s be honest, the kindergarten students are the cutest!) and teach them to reconnect with nature, each other and the food we eat.  Click on Building Community to learn more.

Please partner with us! Together we can make Scotts Valley an even better place for us, and for future generations, to call home.

Since 1976 The Draper Family has sold more Scotts Valley real estate than any name in the business.  We look forward to hearing from you.
