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.

Thank you so much for the purchase of our home. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without your help–thank you! We were also so grateful for your generosity. That was so unexpected! We hope to have you over to celebrate soon. Thank you again so much.

Daniel emailed us home listings on a weekly basis for four years before we purchased our home. Daniel was extremely professional and moved us through our home purchase easing the headaches that come along with the escrow process these days. My wife and I, even though we were both first time home buyers, felt completely comfortable with Daniel and trusted that he was looking out for our best interest. He was dedicated to ensuring we were making a wise investment and educated us on all aspects of the home buying experience At the end of our transaction he even offered us a hand in moving our belongings.

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.
