“We love working with Matt & Mandy. They are highly organized, detailed, knowledgable, hard-working, excellent negotiators, and super nice. They have been going above and beyond to help us purchase our new home. We feel like we are working with friends who truly care about our family.”

– Orenda Randuch, Scotts Valley, California

“This team is way above any realty group I have worked with. They make you feel like you are their only client and helped my husband and I find a wonderful house in a few short months!!!”

– Lindsey Bergh, Scotts Valley, California

“Community Real Estate is family owned, and operated. Always navigating our transactions with a strong moral and ethical compass. Truly representing our Scotts Valley and community, where my family has called home for over 40 years. Thank you Community Real Estate and the Draper family for making our biggest decisions, one of our easiest. Our family has our forever home and are forever grateful for your expert knowledge and small town personal touch!”

– Kelsey Phillips, Scotts Valley, California

“Sue, Mandy & Matt are true professionals! Their long history of supporting families, schools, businesses and clients can’t be matched. We are fortunate to have them in our town.”

– Dave Weaver, Scotts Valley, California

“These are the sharpest agents I have ever worked with.   I have been fortunate to work with great real estate agents! However, I have never seen an approach like what they did with acquiring our house. WOW! Great Job!”

– Daniel Kim, Scotts Valley, California

“The Draper Team is fantastic! My husband and I contemplated selling our home ourselves and Mandy was kind enough to provide us with tips and referrals to local businesses (real estate photography, etc.). When we realized we did not have the band width to do it on our own, we called her back. It was the absolute BEST decision we made. She did everything, and we just followed the calendar she provided. The entire process from list, contract and close was seamless. Our house was under contract and sold above list price after just one open house. If you want to relax during the stressful time of selling, choose the Draper Team at Community Real Estate!”

– Misty Stawasz, Scotts Valley, California

“Their name speaks volumes. Do you want an agent that knows your community and will always put their community first? Look no further. I’ve worked with countless agents in the area and I can say without hesitation the team is seamless with every transaction. Sue, Matt and Mandy are a joy to work with and will put you and your home first as a seller. As a buyer, they know the ins and outs of every nook and cranny in this county. As a seller they are experts on every single neighborhood bringing you top dollar. My only regret is not hiring Community Real Estate first.”

– Krista Abel, Scotts Valley, California

“Words cannot describe how lucky I was to work with Mandy!! I would highly recommend her to any and everyone! She has been an absolute pleasure. I am 23, a first time home buyer, and we spent about 6 months searching for the perfect first home. Mandy was incredibly patient and understanding. She  educated me through the entire process, made it very fun, and became a great friend! I am so lucky to have had Mandy and then entire Draper Family help with this purchase, they are an incredible team and anyone who has the pleasure of working with them is very fortunate! Mandy- Thank you for everything! You are the BEST and I am so lucky to have been able to work with you, it has been so fun! Thank You!!”

– Ashlyn Wenger, Watsonville, California

“This is the most wonderful team of realtors in existence. I’ve purchased two properties from them, with difficult timelines & circumstances, one requiring Sue to work odd hours for me, while I was traveling. They have provided tradesmen for me to use, which were also exceptional. I can’t recommend them highly enough.”

– Robert Michael Avilla, Scotts Valley, California

When I landed a new job in the Bay Area, the prospect of finding a home for our family to relocate to from Southern California seemed dire.  My wife and I had fallen in love with the Skypark neighborhood in SV and knew it would be the perfect fit for us and our children, ages 2 and 4.  But being  new to the area, and without a roadmap of where to start, we felt overwhelmed.  That all changed when my wife and I met Matt Draper for the first time, our primary point of contact with the Team.  Matt has a keen ability to truly listen to others and assess how to meet their needs in a thoughtful and professional manner. Matt is very personable, understands the unique circumstances that each client is dealing with, and will always be there when you need him.  He talked us through each and every step of the way, answering all of our questions, and made sure we understood everything and were comfortable proceeding.  As far as my wife and I are concerned, without the knowledge, experience, and expertise of the Draper Team, we would not be living out our dream in our perfect Skypark home at this very moment.  We are so very pleased and thankful, and would highly recommend him to anyone!”

– David and Melissa Zieper, Scotts Valley, California

“Working with Mandy Draper was a dream for our family! Her professionalism and thoroughness made the process of buying our first home a very smooth process. Mandy made us feel like family from the start. She was always available to take our calls and texts, never making us feel like a burden, and always went the extra mile to explain every step of the process. She truly was our shepherd in this crazy real estate market that exists today. The Draper team is one of a kind and you will not find an agent that will go the extra mile for you like Mandy did for our family. Mandy is an expert regarding Santa Cruz County and any client that works with her will be lucky to have her as an agent. If you want someone who’s detail oriented, honest, and reliable, Mandy is the person to get it done and get it done right!”

– Kevin and Valerie Lenahan, Scotts Valley, California

“It is possible there are realtors in this part of the world that are almost as good as Sue, Mandy and Matt, perhaps even one or two that are as good, but there are none better and that is for sure!!!”

– Chris Cuddihy, Santa Cruz, California

“Community Real Estate was fantastic. The number one best factor is their level of communication. Updates, changes, and requests were made in a timely manner and we were never left wondering where we stood. Thanks!”

– Marc Desobeau, Scotts Valley, California

“We are living in Germany and wanted to sell our townhouse in Scotts Valley. We emailed multiple local realtors with specific information of the situation. Over half sent back a generic email that said give us a call. Mandy took the time to read our email and respond on a personal level detailing how she could make it work. Working with Mandy was very easy. Relaxing if you could say that about selling a house. The entire process was explained well with calendars, so we knew the timelines. Her expertise in the area and market allowed our house to have multiple offers in one day on the market. She respected our decisions and supported them. Advised on situations but allowed us to make the decisions. If we ever get back to California we would love to meet Mandy in person!”

– Sean and Mary Finney, Spangdahlem, Germany

The Draper team sold our home for us just last month. We worked primarily through Matt but it was a team effort. They were expert in every phase of the process from prepping, staging, listing, showing, negotiating and closing. I’m 65 and have owned and sold several homes over the years. I have  never worked with a more professional, effective and personable team (second place isn’t even close). They kept us informed constantly, helped out with numerous tasks that weren’t really their responsibility, gave great advice, and managed the process to maximize our sale, minimize our time and effort. I couldn’t rate them more highly. We consider ourselves very lucky to have had them list our home. They are literally the best real estate team I have ever encountered in my life. Really.”

– Richard and Christine McCullough, Scotts Valley, California

The Drapers bring a dream team of experience, market savvy and roll-up-their sleeves hard work to every client they take on. Despite being in high demand, they provided an attention to detail in the selling and purchase of our homes this summer that made the whole move possible. In a very competitive bidding situation, Matt was able to secure us as the accepted buyer on our new home. Within days, Matt, Mandy and Sue had our existing home prepped, listed and hosted (with homemade hors d’oeuvres!) for open house showings. We quickly had a buyer and backup, and the Drapers helped us negotiate a seamless concurrent close, to the benefit of all. The fact that they are heavily involved with the community and generously donate to our schools is the icing on the cake with Community Real Estate. Highly recommended!”

– Amber McGough, Scotts Valley, California

“Community Real Estate helped us sell our home and purchase our forever home in Scotts Valley. They are the best real estate team we have ever worked with for many reasons including Scotts Valley and market knowledge, integrity, hard work and getting us to the finish line with a successful result.”

– Jason McGough, Scotts Valley, California

We recently worked with Sue Draper of Community Real Estate on the sale of our home, and she far exceeded our expectations every step of the way. Her knowledge of Scotts Valley real estate is unsurpassed and we felt a high level of trust in her from the beginning. She anticipated every potential  issue and proactively took steps to avoid any hiccups in the process. In the rare instances when Sue wasn’t available, Matt and Mandy stepped in and were both extremely competent and helpful. If we could give them 6 stars, we would!”

– Jim and Carol Weisenstein, Scotts Valley, California

“I could not be happier with The Draper Team. In particular Mandy was such a fantastic professional and went way beyond what I expected in a real estate agent. She helped coach us and more importantly the client and their agent through a very difficult process. I have no doubt if not for Mandy and the Draper Team this transaction would not have closed and we would not be enjoying our new semi retirement life. My wife and I both feel that we have gained new friends through this process and would highly recommend The Draper Team if you are thinking of buying or selling a home. THANK YOU!”

– Kelly and Carolyn Chew, Ben Lomond California

“This is the dream team for sure! They all go way above and beyond to make the entire process goes smoothly. I have never experienced an agent going above and beyond like they have. We all know how stressful the process can be especially with an inexperienced seller. They are 1000 % responsive and explain everything to set you at ease. I would use them to buy my next home for sure. I can’t recommend them highly enough!”

– Sheryl Brandt, Scotts Valley California

“Mandy and the whole team at Community Real Estate are amazing. This is actually the second home they have helped us buy. They are so helpful and hard working. Would highly recommend Mandy and anyone at Community Real Estate.”

– Josh Maurer, Boulder Creek, California

“I first met Matt & Mandy Draper about five years ago when I needed a rental for myself and two boys. To make A longer story short. They gave me a opportunity when most probably wouldn’t have. I found them to be two of the most honest and compassionate people I have ever met. Earlier this year I had a property I needed to sell and chose them to represent me as my agent. I was beyond impressed with their professionalism, responsiveness and willingness to go above and beyond to help me get my property ready to sell and to find the appropriate buyer for my property. During this process we ran into a few hurtles that Matt negotiated with class and determination ,which resulted in a saving of at least 30 days. If you are looking for an agent that will treat you like family then The Drapers are the choice for you. You won’t be disappointed.”

– Karen Koenig, Scotts Valley California

“I cannot say enough about the Draper Team.  They are a family-owned business. Sue Draper has been a realtor for over 40 years here in Scotts Valley so her knowledge of the area and the market is unprecedented. Her son Matt and daughter-in-law Mandy are the other two-thirds of the team. They are not your run of the mill realtors. They care. They work with you and go the extra mile. They take into consideration your concerns and gently guide you through what is always a stressful life event. There is no pressure to get that contract signed until you are completely comfortable with your decision to sell. I give them 15 out of 10.”

– Gloria Carruthers, Scotts Valley, California

“The Draper team is phenomenal! They bring a personal touch to helping you fulfill your individual goals with real estate. They represented me as a buyer and quickly had my listing on the market positioned well to draw interest. The offers came in fast and the whirlwind required immediate attention, frequent communication, and a close understanding of the process (all which the Drapers handled with expertise). The Drapers were extremely helpful in advising me in all decisions and the sale went through higher than listed. When they represented me as a buyer, I felt like I had a trusted ally/expert looking out for my best interests. I was a patient buyer looking for a general idea in a home that fit me personally. They captured that essence and had a couple options for me to consider. For what felt like a blink of an eye, I was putting in an offer on a home that struck my wildest hopes and dreams. The journey through escrow to close was not without excitement yet everything seemed to go smoothly because of my awesome real estate representation. They exemplified professionalism and a clear understanding of the buying/selling process so well that I’m sure the seller wished they had them on their side of the transaction instead (final purchase price settled lower than listed). In the end, I am a proud owner of a home in Santa Cruz that was really made possible by the experience and quick-thinking actions of the Draper’s. I feel extremely fortunate to have the Draper team representing me and eagerly promote them whenever I can.”

– Steve Seymour, Santa Cruz, California

The Draper Team is the best team ever!!! Having sold real estate in our past, my wife and I were very impressed with The Draper Team. They exceeded all of our expectations by going way above and beyond in servicing our needs. They were professional, expedient, polite, and sold our house in record time. Sue and the team did just about everything for us except sign the paperwork, which was online and super easy. By investing their time in mini-rehabbing our rental income property, they were able to get top dollar for us. They arranged for everything and met with all of the contractors since we travel a lot of the time. I was super impressed by their sales strategy and real estate savvy. This team is very unique and will always be cherished by us. Thanks Team Draper!!!
