Recommending Daniel is the easiest thing in the world as I can’t imagine how our home purchase could have gone any smoother. The service that my family and I received while purchasing our Santa Barbara home was exceptional. We told Daniel what we were looking for and he was there every inch of the way letting us know about new houses on the market, the positives and potential negatives for each, resale value, remodel ideas, etc. Daniel has such an impressive grasp on the real estate profession that every question my family and I had was immediately answered and elaborated on. This kind of service really set us at ease and gave us confidence in our search for a home. Once we decided on a purchase, a complicated process filled with what seemed like a million signatures and initials and faxes ensued. Daniel made this process completely manageable, explaining everything along the way and making sure we had all our bases covered. In all honesty, I cannot imagine better service than that which we received from Daniel. If you live in the Santa Barbara area and are looking for a property, I highly recommend Daniel Zia as a real estate agent.

Daniel Zia is 3 for 3 with us! When we decided to purchase our first condo with Daniel there was already an offer on it, but he knew how to make our offer stand out and we got the condo. Five years later we decided to upgrade to a new place, same scenario, same result. But this time we got it for under the list price. When we sold that first condo, Daniel told us what was worth upgrading and what wasn’t. And gave us referrals to replace the floors, counters and paint. It turned out to be a great return on investment and without the referrals it wouldn’t have happened. He priced it right and we had competing offers and sold for over asking price. I don’t know how he does it, but he just knows what to do. When we closed escrow he was on vacation, but his educated team negotiated some final details and took care of us.

We recently completed the purchase of our home in Santa Barbara after years of searching for just the right place. We had the pleasure of meeting and working with Daniel Zia during this long endeavor. We have purchased numerous properties during our lifetime and have never been so favorably impressed with the representation offered by Mr. Zia. We were especially grateful for the patience that was afforded us. In retrospect we see that we were not at all clear what we were actually looking for. We never felt like we were being urged to buy a particular property. Instead we were intently questioned and listened to as our need and desire evolved into something quite different over the many months and months of looking. When we finally decided on the home we wanted, Daniel’s professionalism and knowledge became even more evident. He was always a step ahead of each of the many obstacles current buyers are met with. He had a ready list of competent tradesman for the numerous reports and inspections that are required, and scheduled all of them as if directing a well-practiced orchestra! We will recommend Daniel’s services to friends and family, feeling confident in his patience, professionalism, and fully deserving of our trust.
