Jon Gilkenson and the entire Zia Group team take buying and selling a home to a new level. Their knowledge, expertise and professionalism are above and beyond what we have experienced in our past real estate experiences (and we’ve had quite a few). We selected Daniel and Jon to be our agents after interviewing many top agents in Santa Barbara. We chose them because we knew we needed agents that were really on top of their game to do what we wanted to do: sell our house for top dollar as a pocket listing with all sorts of contingencies (such as allowing us time to find a replacement property and secure a mortgage). They and the entire Zia Group team were able to do that and also help us purchase our replacement property (again with contingencies). They handled both transactions simultaneously–a lot of moving parts to deal with. It was mind-boggling to say the least. Lesser men would have cracked under all the demands and counter demands, changing time frames, and human whims. But Daniel and Jon are champions at this business–truly, they were unfailingly professional, calm, and patient (even when we weren’t). My husband and I recommend them without hesitation. They are simply the best in Santa Barbara.
The sale of our condo in Santa Barbara was a total success. It was on the market less than a week and there were two strong buyers. We sold it for more than the asking price. Every aspect of the sale went smoothly which is especially unusual because I live in the Bay Area and was selling the condo “long distance.” But that was never a problem for Daniel who kept me informed every step of the way and gave clear instructions for what I needed to do. The notary who came to my home exclaimed that the quick sale of the condo was nothing short of a miracle since most stay on the market for at least nine months or more. In a nutshell: Daniel is easy to recommend because he is an honest, creative, hardworking and knowledgeable realtor. He was a pleasure to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate a minute to have Daniel sell any other property I owned.
Thanks for your outstanding work in obtaining an early sale of the above property and at a price that far exceeded my client’s expectations. From the beginning of your representation, I was impressed with your knowledge of handling Trust Estate real property sales and your professionalism in turning around what had been a frustrating experience in my client’s dealing with a prior broker. When I have the opportunity of referring clients for future marketing and sale of real property in the Ventura/Santa Barbara area, I will do so with confidence that you are the best of the best.
Zia Group was invaluable to us when we were selling our house and trying to buy at the same time. Their sage advice and professionalism made our experience terrific. We negotiated (with his help) a great sales price and a great buy price. Zia Group are keepers!!!
I wanted to express our appreciation to you for all of the time you spent meeting with us, and for the very thorough CMA you put together. As always, the experience working with you and getting your perspective on things was very valuable and the picture of professionalism.
