My husband and I met Daniel a few years ago when I was looking for a summer rental in Santa Barbara. I thought he was so kind and generous with his time-for just a rental. We fell in love with Santa Barbara and always toyed with the idea of purchasing a summer home there. An unexpected opportunity fell into my lap in September 2009. I am now officially the owner of a Santa Barbara property purchased through Daniel, with the transaction taking place while I was in the comforts of New York, in less than 30 days. As luck would have it, Daniel sent an e-mail to us and we pretty much took his word on the condition of the property. He emailed us photos immediately and followed through exceptionally well. Whatever we didn’t know, Daniel did. His no pressure attitude, in conjunction with his confidence in himself and the property he had found for us, was undeniable. He was forthcoming with even the smallest details about the property. His honesty and his attention to detail were apparent from the beginning. We put great faith in him, as this was a long distance purchase on a property that we had not seen. I really could go and on about his professionalism. There was not one question that stumped him during this very untraditional purchase. He did his research and kept us abreast to all progress. His professionalism and knowledge were paramount. Let me say that finding Daniel Zia was an absolute gift to us! He facilitated me purchasing my dream summer home in a matter of 30 days and he has continued to offer his services post transaction. He has checked in on the house since we are not there. Knowing he is still available to me really puts my mind at ease. He puts his heart and soul into his work and you would be very fortunate to have him on any side of your real estate transaction!

I met Jonathan and before deciding to use his service he all ready gathered information on his own time for me to begin making decisions regarding the home. Jonathan Gilkeson went beyond what he had to do as a realtor helping the process I needed to accomplish closing the estate. He communicated quickly and checked in often to make sure I understood everything I was signing and needed to do. Even after the sale of the home, he was and is there to help with any follow up on the house. His honesty and integrity is worthy of excellent reviews. I recommend anyone needing a realtor to meet Jonathan Gilkeson as he made my selling experience the easiest and most pleasant possible.
