Seb is originally from Berkeley, California. He moved to Santa Cruz in 1988 when he graduated from high school to attend the University of California at Santa Cruz. His first career was in Information Technology, which took him to live and work in such exotic places as Alaska, Malaysia, Bali, France, the United Kingdom, Belgium, and of course, all throughout Silicon Valley.
Seb got his real estate salesperson’s license in 2003, and since then he has continued to educate himself and improve his skills. In 2005, Seb obtained his Real Estate Broker’s license, and Seb also holds a number of Realtor designations, including GRI, CRS, SRS, SRES and e-Pro. In 2013 Seb became the Broker Owner of Realty World Virtuoso, along with his wife, Rocio Llontop, who serves as President and CEO of the organization.
Having been a real estate professional in the area for going on 16 years, Seb brings an unusually high level of skill and expertise to every transaction he’s a part of, having sold well over 300 homes since earning his real estate license. He has a passion for helping his clients get the best deal when buying or selling a home. He’s earned five star ratings on both Zillow and Yelp.
Seb has traveled widely across the United States, Europe, and Asia for both business and pleasure. Having visited or lived in over half the United States and more than 50 countries world-wide, Seb is convinced that the Santa Cruz / Monterey / Bay Area region is not just a nice place to live. He knows that it does, on balance, provide unparalleled opportunity for folks who live here to live the best life imaginable. This sentiment and conviction shine through in his work; he truly believes in the amazing value inherent in every property he represents.
