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.

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!
