Dreaming of an anchorage in sunny and vivacious Santa Cruz on California's central coast? Need a navigator to steer you through the shallows to the home of your dreams? We are Schooner Realty, a women owned brokerage of professional realtors, including owner and broker Celeste Faraola-Perie. Celeste is a fifth-generation Santa Cruz local, and she and her associates were raised in the relaxed neighborhoods of Santa Cruz beaches and redwoods. In-depth local knowledge, creative, professional and far-reaching creative marketing, decades of experience, and a commitment to our clients will help you navigate a course straight to one of California's most magical landfalls. 

Schooner Realty has always been Santa Cruz local since its genesis in 1973. Launched under the sensitive helmsmanship of founder, (and celebrated Santa Cruz community activist), Harriet Deck, Schooner Realty became known for matching homes to the visions of the famously diverse Santa Cruz population. Partnering with Harriet in 2006, Celeste Faraola-Perie took over sole ownership of Schooner Realty in 2016. If your dream is a cottage on the beach, a retreat in the redwoods, or an elegant architectural masterpiece overlooking Monterey Bay, the tradition of patiently listening and sensitively responding established by Harriet Deck, lives on with Celeste and her crew of real estate professionals at Schooner Realty.

What Clients Are Saying

Celeste Faraola @ Schooner Realty has done a fantastic job managing my rental property in Santa Cruz. I did it myself for a few years and then decided to give Schooner a shot. I am SO glad I did! The last 4 years have been trouble free, my rental income increased, and I have had 2 (yes two) days of non-rental in the past 4 years. It is great to work w/a company that is both small enough to give you that personal touch, and good enough to get the job done well. When/if I decide to sell I will use them for that also. Thanks Schooner!

There will never be enough or the right words for Jamie and I to express how fortunate we are to have worked with Celeste in finding our home on Younglove. In beginning our home search, (which in someways only lasted that one day – we’re not complaining!) we didn’t expect to find a home we love so much. Thanks for helping deal with everything, that was a wild month! 

All the best, Leslie & Jamie
