Santa Cruz County Realtor® with Two Decades Experience 

We’re excited to announce that GRO founder and veteran Realtor® Gina Odom was named among the “Top Real Estate Professionals to Watch Out For” in a special issue of Forbes! 
The Forbes editors shined the spotlight on 10 real estate superstars helping transform the industry with innovative approaches to support homebuyers in 2022.
“It’s an honor and surprise to be included on this list with professionals I admire from all over the country!” said Gina, who began practicing real estate in 2003. 
Here’s what else Forbes said:
“Gina has an inborn knack for real estate and has proven to have solid business acumen. While learning the ropes with the family construction business, she learned how to read blueprints, provide estimates & understand inspections. Quickly she realized that she didn’t want to wear a tool belt but wanted to continue helping people. That, combined with an entrepreneurial spirit led her to real estate, an industry in which her deep knowledge of home construction has served her clients well over the past seventeen years.
“She appreciates the fine art of the transaction and enjoys the nuances of true negotiation and finding common ground for both the buyer and seller. She is a natural problem solver and enjoys providing excellent customer service.” 
While Gina is passionate about all things real estate, she especially loves helping first-time homebuyers break into the Santa Cruz market. In this competitive region, she specializes in guiding nervous new buyers through the bidding process and helping them find their dream investment instead of a money pit.
On the sales side of Santa Cruz real estate, Gina sold $32 million last year alone and has built her business with repeat clients and referrals.
Gina first launched her real estate career in the East Bay and in 2013 moved to Santa Cruz, where she helped lead the area’s largest independent brokerage. After she achieved her dream of moving her family to Santa Cruz, she dedicated herself to helping other homebuyers make similar dreams come true. 
Gina’s future plans include expanding her GRO dream team, mentoring other agents, and nurturing GRO Community, her new nonprofit formed to provide grants to Santa Cruz County children who otherwise couldn’t afford enrichment programs like summer camp, music and art lessons, and tutoring. (Expect to hear more from us about GRO Community and how you can get involved soon.)
“It is my joy and honor to serve the residents as a Realtor® in Santa Cruz County,” she said. “I am so excited to see where this business goes!
