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 Big Block Realty, one of the fastest growing real estate companies in the U.S.

"Stan Cross is a superb realtor, gifted at both buying and selling. Three years ago when we were relocating from the east coast to California, Stan provided excellent support, scouting out homes, offering insights about properties, and serving as a skilled negotiator. He was our eyes and ears on the ground. Recently, we just moved away from California and Stan served once again as our listing agent. Our house sold in one day with multiple offers, thanks in large part to the pricing and staging advice Stan provided. Stan is smart, articulate, fair, candid, and conscientious — everything you need in a realtor. Beyond his professional qualities, Stan is a wonderful human being. Buying and selling a home can be stressful, but Stan makes the process comfortable, sensible, and transparent"

"Stan Cross is the best real estate agent on the Central California Coast This is the 2nd time I've had the pleasure of working with Stan on a real estate transaction, and I couldn't be more pleased with the final outcome, on both occasions! When Stan says he's got my back, and will assist me all along the way, he really means it. From beginning (the property search) to the end (home purchase) Stan facilitated me, every step of the way! I will certainly use Stan again, as my agent for any future real estate deals, and highly recommend him to anyone else needing a fabulous realtor on the Central Coast. Verified by RateMyAgent"

"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."
