Mario Desantis is a risk-taker who knows how to deliver results. Raised in Altamura, Puglia, the heel of Italy’s “boot,” Mario moved to Santa Cruz, California, at the age of 19 after visiting for vacation and falling in love with the city, the redwoods, and the community. Upon arriving in Santa Cruz, Mario dedicated himself to learning English and Spanish and improving himself through education. Now, as a real estate agent, he brings that zest for life and progress to all of his clients.
Mario became excited about real estate after buying his first home in 2018; he wanted others to experience how amazing it feels to own a home. He began studying the industry and became even more passionate about helping clients find their dream homes. Mario works with buyers across the board — from first-time homebuyers to empty nesters ready to downsize. He speaks English, Spanish, and Italian, and can help people who are relocating from outside the U.S. find their home in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
Mario is dedicated to his community and his family, and he loves traveling around Europe and the U.S. to learn about other cultures. The husband and father of one also loves playing soccer, running in the beautiful redwoods, reading books, and meeting new people. He and his wife, Morgan, enjoy cooking, hiking, and traveling the world. Ciao!
