About Us


Sheldon Wiseman Commercial Real Estate was co-founded by Steven Sheldon and Jim Wiseman.  The formation of the company was the result of numerous years of cultivating relationships with clients and brokers throughout Northern California and the United States with a primary focus on Santa Cruz County.  Our high level of dedication to our clients and fairness to other real estate professionals has earned us the respect that enables us to aggressively service the needs of our clients while maintaining relationships with other brokers that encourages cooperation. 

Sheldon Wiseman Commercial Real Estate is a departure from the “old school” of commercial real estate.  We capitalize on our experience, education, and technical expertise to assist our clients in every aspect of a real estate transaction.  We feel that brokerage is much more than being the “procuring cause” of a transaction in order to earn a commission, as is the prevailing sentiment in most commercial real estate firms today.  Instead, we pride ourselves in being able to assist our clients in the multitude of decisions that have to be made as a part of the commercial real estate process.  This involves not only the acquisition or disposition of a property or the leasing of a property.  It also extends throughout the ownership of the asset or the term of the lease.  Our market knowledge is unsurpassed, as is our ability to effectively negotiate a transaction that addresses the needs of our clients.  Above all, we put our clients needs first and foremost.
