Having spent 35 years in marketing with Procter & Gamble, I was really impressed with Zia Group's marketing. Zia Group had everything set up for us, and made it very easy. They sold our house for our target price in 4 days.

From our initial conversation right through the closing of escrow on our home in Santa Barbara, Daniel was amazing to work with. His professionalism, communication skills, and pleasant demeanor contributed to this real estate purchase being the smoothest experience we have ever undertaken.
