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.

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.
Let’s start with the results: thanks to Zia Group’s hard work and outstanding marketing we sold our home to a cash buyer for the asking price in less than a week. Daniel is a fine leader and has built an excellent team. Everything was done at the highest professional level. Communication was easy and clear. Daniel understood our goals and achieved them. And, last but not least, we liked everyone on the team and enjoyed working with them. Highly recommended.
I highly recommend anyone looking to purchase a home in the Santa Barbara area to work with Zia Group! I thoroughly enjoyed working with them and appreciated they professional demeanor and quick response times, something that a lot of Santa Barbara professionals lack. They are incredibly knowledgeable about the Santa Barbara market and helped my fiance and I quickly find a home that matched our needs perfectly! I was even more impressed with their patience dealing with my fiance and myself as we deliberated the purchase and grateful for his advice as well.
