Katie Mekis Lemon, a fourth generation Santa Cruz native, is passionate about life in the Bay Area and is dedicated to providing her clients with neighborhood-specific insights while sharing local market trends. Whether looking for a condo in Santa Cruz, a rural property in Soquel, a beach house in Aptos, or an up-and-coming neighborhood in Watsonville, Katie will work with you to find the property that aligns with your needs.
Her financial background, a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Santa Clara University and previous career as a director of finance and financial controller for corporations and our local non-profit Hospice of Santa Cruz County, helps Katie support her clients as they navigate the budgetary realities of buying and selling, ensuring that her clients receive the “best bang for their buck.”
For sellers, Katie will be a guide through the process of listing your home with support from the innovative marketing and experienced transition teams at David Lyng Real Estate.

For buyers, Katie will listen, be your advocate, and partner with you throughout your home buying journey. She will communicate all the information you need to make informed decisions, and help guide you through all aspects of the purchasing process. Katie’s attention to detail and organizational skills will ensure all communication and negotiations with the seller go smoothly, helping set your offer apart from the rest in this competitive market.
You’ll probably see Katie around town as she is an active community member, regularly attending and participating in community events, and previously serving on the Board for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Santa Cruz County. Outside of real estate Katie enjoys hiking, wine tasting, and spending time with family and friends. Along with her husband, a third generation Monterey resident, and their dog, Katie loves exploring the countryside, neighborhoods, and beaches. She regularly finds herself back and forth between Santa Cruz and Monterey (and all the amazing spots in between!)
