Throughout my diverse career I have been honored with recognition for thinking outside the box and have led and developed businesses and organizations in Virginia, Washington, and now California.

Graduating with honors in Electrical Engineering from Virginia Tech gave me the skill to develop Holdren's, a retail appliance and electronics company, into one nationally recognized for its many innovations. One of the most important of those innovations was my work in the development of the home theater concept. During that time, I conceived of, designed, and sold a very profitable 14 store rental company within a 4 year time span.  

But life isn't just about work and making a profit. It's about giving back; It's about empowering others to make lasting changes in their own lives. To that end,  I volunteered as president of several influential community organizations that helped to improve the lives of many in Central and Southwestern Virginia.

After Holdren's was sold, I moved on to become the U.S. Director of Interdev, a small but influential international organization based in Seattle. Here, my primary role was to help generate funding from the U.S. to support Interdev's innovative partnership building efforts throughout Central Asia. While there Interdev's revenues more than doubled.

In 2002 I went back to school and graduated with a Master of Divinity degree from Wake Forest University in North Carolina. The unique combination of education and work experience gives me a powerful perspective in Real Estate. Since moving to the Central Coast over 16 years ago, I have held key sales and management positions before becoming a Realtor. I offer extensive knowledge of San Luis Obispo County neighborhoods, schools, community offerings, market conditions, property values, zoning regulations and other ordinances. I also enjoy superb working relationships with professionals in the areas of finance, real estate law, title search, home inspection, and appraisal.

Presently, my family and I live in the Five Cities area of San Luis Obispo County and I represent Big Block Realty, one of the fastest growing real estate companies in the U.S.

"Stan was extremely patient and quick to respond to any questions or concerns my wife and/or I had. As first time home buyers you can imagine how green we were to all of this. He explained every detail of the process in terms we could understand, met with us and/or took our calls, texts, and emails during weekdays, weekends, holidays (literally), mornings, and nights, and was both personable and professional, which is something my wife and I absolutely loved. Stan helped negotiate terms, credits, and closing costs that allowed us to afford our first home on the central coast of California. I will be recommending Stan to my friends and family as not only a highly proficient real estate agent in the central coast, but as someone you can expect to get a call from months down the road to make sure everything is still going well and to offer any help if needed."

"My property sale was "Easy as Pie"I am a return client of Stan's. He was my agent when I purchased my vacation and rental property at Baycliff Village in Shell Beach. The buying experience was so easy and simple that it was only natural to have Stan handle the sale 7 years later. Stan is very professional and knowledgeable of the housing market in San Luis Obispo County. In addition to the normal real estate processes, Stan went above and beyond by helping remove items from the property, as well as being a handyman to assist me small repairs. All of this made the sale easy, stress free and are valuable traits when working with a real estate agent. I highly recommend Stan Cross!Verified by RateMyAgent "
