Stan Cross

License #:

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 Richardson Properties, the leading real estate brokerage on the Central Coast.

"We really liked working with Stan Cross. He came across as relaxed and low key, unfailingly pleasant, while fulfilling his realty duties in a very professional and efficient way. We appreciated his advice and guidance in preparing the house and landscaping to show the property at an advantage. His website was beautiful, presenting our house in the best possible way, and even his "for sale" sign was unusually elegant. When the house sale was in process, he made all the paperwork and procedures easy for us. His explanations of legalities were clear and to the point. We were impressed by Stan's knowledge and efficiency every step of the way, and would highly recommend his services to anyone."

"Think you know the game ? Don’t bet money on it; there’s too much to loose ! Choose a Profesional who understands the selling/acquisition pitfall’s. A realtor who client’s concerns are well understood and responds to them much beyond the norm. Determining a correct market place value is critical to support as is achieving a client’s full satisfaction. Most of all he acts, speaks and timelessly devotes all of his skill’s to achieve a client’s proper and appropriate reward."

"Stan Cross was amazing to work with! He listened to what I was needing and wanting in a new home. Stan was also very respectful of my budget and made me feel as if he totally had my best interest at heart. Every time a new property came on the market he was "on it"to make sure I had the quickest opportunity to see it. Stan was also always available if I had any questions or concerns throughout the entire process of looking, bidding and finalizing the purchase of my new home. StanCross is a very trustworthy and reliable realtor to work with!!! If and when I ever need a realtor, it will definitely be Stan Cross. Thank you Stan for everything you do!!!"

"It started a couple of years ago with getting his opinion regarding the color the board was going to paint the PUD's. When we got ready to sell we contacted him as we felt very competent with him and his ability. We were not wrong!! He put our place on the market and within 11 days it was sold. He not only helped when the buyer's agent got a little pushy but when we didn't quite didn't understand as we have lived in the place for 25 years and things were different now than they were 25 years ago when sold our last place. My husband and I feel that we made the right choice with Stan and he now has become a friend and we would recommend him highly"
