David Long and his family have called Santa Cruz home for three generations. David grew up in Rolling Green Estates in Aptos and graduated fromSoquel High School in 1983. After high school David moved to Woodside to coach and compete while representing the USA as an Equestrian Vaulter (gymnastics on horses). During this period he earned several International and National Championship titles. After qualifying for a 3rd World Championship in 1989, he was compelled to retire due to injury. In 2014 was inducted into the American Vaulting Associations Hall of Fame.
Soon after, he began work in a mortgage firm located in Palo Alto. While there, David was encouraged to obtain his real estate license. This led to a successful 16 year career as a residential Mortgage Broker in Menlo Park and San Carlos. In 2008 he made the shift from mortgage broker to RealtorÒin his home town Santa Cruz and now he is pleased to be joining Bailey Properties.
As David says, “No matter where I’ve traveled in the US and Europe,Santa Cruz is always home”.
