Already Committed
or Why I know what I'm talking about when it comes to Santa Cruz County.

Whether it's the history of the community, its eclectic culture, its politics, its weather, its hot spots, its flaws and foibles, its collective persona, its unique ambiance, its cast of characters, its inside stories, its facts and fictions, its ongoing awe-inspiring weirdness, its frustrating and invigorating sense of aliveness, its past, present and future shock - you name it, I know it or can at least make up something that sounds interestingly plausible and will probably make you laugh. When you are thinking about moving to a community, you want to hang with someone who knows it from the inside out, someone who has lived it, someone who in a sense is it.

The following is a partial list of the community organizations, boards, jobs, task forces and committees that I have been associated with during the last twenty years in Santa Cruz County. Through these years of dedicated service to the community, I have developed an extensive network of contacts and a high degree of public visibility, which have proven invaluable to the ongoing success of his real estate practice. Tom's interest in being involved also reflects a strong sense of commitment to improving Santa Cruz County and to giving back to the community which continues to support his business and family.
