I worked with the Zia Group with the sale of my late mother’s house. They are a friend of a friend of my mother’s and was highly recommended. They were able show my mother’s home and describe the highlights of the house and quickly help close the sale at a price the buyer and seller were happy with. Their negotiating skills and local knowledge of housing enabled us to quickly reach a fair price for the home. Their expertise with the escrow process allowed us to quickly close escrow without any delay. I highly recommend Zia Group.

In a town with approximately 10,000 realtors, it is a major achievement to be voted Best Realtor for multiple years by the Santa Barbara Independent’s annual poll. After having Daniel represent us for the purchase of our home, I see why he earned that award. Our transaction was not easy. We had challenges with a short sale from the seller and the bank. And, in today’s much stricter lending environment, our preferred method of financing was very difficult too. Throughout the entire transaction, from getting the offer in immediately upon the property going onto the market, to bumps in the road along the way, Daniel always offered knowledgeable advice and a positive yet realistic attitude. Never once did I feel like he was a sales person, but always a consultant with our best interest as first priority. As owner of five properties and having used five separate realtors, I can say with complete certainty that Daniel Zia is the real deal.
I have bought and sold many homes over the years and I must say that this sale (Daniel represented me as the seller) was the best so far. Daniel was on top of things from the beginning to the end. It seemed like he was always one step ahead of what needed to be done. He did a good job working with the other Realtor and kept on top of the escrow proceedings. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a good Santa Barbara Realtor.
