The One Who Steers the Ship
Veronica leads SearchLight’s property management arm, guiding the team in the office while supervising our vendors and our maintenance programs. She expects to wear many hats as SearchLight continues to grow and evolve – a prospect that suits her entrepreneurial spirit.
A licensed signing agent, Veronica ran her own notary and consulting businesses before joining SearchLight. As a sole proprietor she worked with realtors, title companies, and other entities under the real estate umbrella. Previously she served as a community manager with Greystar at a property that included 250 apartments.
Two decades ago, Veronica had career plans unrelated to real estate. In college she trained to become a holistic practitioner, chiropractor, and massage therapist, but then took a job in accounting in Santa Barbara, where she stayed for 10 years. Her first professional experience in real estate was as a property manager with Gardner Management. That role introduced her to vast opportunities in the industry, which she continues to explore and enjoy as part of the SearchLight team.
A Santa Maria resident who loves her proximity to the ocean, Veronica lives with her husband, teenage sons, and three dogs -- two Maltipoos (Bentley and Shelby) and one lab retriever (Kody, usually called Koko).
