Reviews from Santa Barbara homebuyers

Jon was extremely professional and helpful in purchasing our first home in Santa Barbara. He communicated with us throughout the process and helped us to find the perfect home and then hired and scheduled contractors for us as we were on a tight schedule to move in. We would highly recommend him and would definitely use him again for future real estate transactions! He is wonderful to work with and went out of his way to make everything run smoothly.

Sherry Montgomery

I highly recommend Zia Group! They helped us in finding our perfect home, and we could not be happier with the outcome. Through the process he was attentive, easy to communicate with & knowledgeable. He seemed to know what we wanted, better than we knew ourselves! He guided us to a home that we had looked past and would have not considered if it would not have been for him. Coming from a situation where we previously purchased a home that was not right for us and our family, we knew how important it would be for us to find a home that we loved. Thanks to Zia Group we are as happy as can be in our new home! In addition, Daniel and his team helped us with a quick & smooth escrow, making the process as simple & stress free.

Brett & Carly Boyd

Thank you for helping us through this crazy process of buying our first home! We have felt nothing but peace working with you and your team. It was truly a blessing to work with you and we appreciate all your time spent with us and on our behalf. If all goes according to plan, we will have the pleasure of working with you again in a few years.

Zia Group went above and beyond the call of duty. They walked us through the entire process and explaining everything thoroughly, which was very helpful since we are first time homeowners. They had a friendly disposition as is supported by a highly knowledgeable team! I cannot give enough stars to Zia Group, highly recommend them!

Kathy Serrano

I can’t say enough good things about Daniel and the whole team at Zia Group. He was able to give unbiased information while making sure he really understood me and what I wanted to help present the information that he knew was important to me. The whole process felt customized to me as a buyer while at the same time felt smooth to show they had done this many times before. I will be recommending Zia Group to anyone I know buying or selling a home in the Santa Barbara area.
