Personal BackgroundSylvia Brugman was born, raised and educated in Europe. Her love of people is what led her to initially pursue a career as a Registered Nurse and to later become a Residential Realtor. Open-minded and looking to explore the world further, she moved with her husband to the United States in 1989. Similar to many others before her, one look at the Monterey Peninsula and she fell in love! Now with over ten years of experience in the real estate industry, she enjoys spreading the joy she has gained living on the Central Coast with her husband, son, daughter and pets with everyone lucky enough to meet her. Sylvia’s ideal client encompasses many of the positive traits she herself possesses, so if you are open-minded, reasonable and have a great sense of humor (very much needed in today’s real estate world) then you should call her for any of your present or future real estate wants or needs! With over 20 years living here, she would love to help you find a new place in the area to call home too!
