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 helped us find our home and we love it. In this competitive market, she helped us find a house that met our criteria, stay on budget, negotiate a good bid, and even put us in touch with contractors, electrician, etc so we could get the renovation done as quickly as possible to move in at the time we wanted. I highly recommend Celeste!

Celeste Faraola Perie at Schooner Realty came highly recommended to me by a close friend. In addition to Celeste's in-depth knowledge of the of the Santa Cruz market, she referred me to a local mortgage broker and helped me negotiate a substantial savings on my contracted price!  I knew what I wanted and she helped me find it fast and have fun in the process!!
