Virginia Lee came to the Sally Bookman Team with a wealth of local knowledge about the nuances of the Santa Cruz lifestyle — from the mountains to the sea. Having raised a family amidst the redwoods of Bonny Doon for nearly 30 years, she understands rural living, but appreciates the convenience of being in town as well. As a devoted sailor, Virginia Lee believes that the closer to the ocean you are the better! And as a graduate and former employee of UCSC, she understands the benefits of the Westside too.

Before getting her license in real estate in 2003, Virginia Lee also worked as a local writer and editor for the Good Times of Santa Cruz, as well as other publications such as Monterey Life, Yoga Journal and Common Ground magazine. She has also written and published two books: The Roots of Ras Tafari (1985) and Affairs of the Heart (1993).

After taking early retirement from her position as an Administrative Assistant for UCSC’s Psychology Department, Virginia Lee served from 2007-09 for the Peace Corps in Ukraine. Living in a post-Soviet society was a life-changing experience, which—after two years in Eastern Europe— gave her an enhanced appreciation for the quality of life we enjoy here in Santa Cruz. This new perspective inspires Virginia Lee to share her love of Santa Cruz with those who wish to buy a home and savor life the Monterey Bay area. It is indeed an honor and a privilege to be a member of the Sally Bookman Team.
