Daniel and his team are truly the best team you could ask for when buying a home. The Zia Group helped us purchase our first home in a competitive market by knowing more about the neighborhood and history of the house that ultimately led to an accepted offer. They are responsive and wonderful people to work with. I highly recommend Daniel and his team!

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.
Daniel helped my wife and I purchase a Santa Barbara condominium by long distance since we don’t live in California. His website was very helpful in that we were able to “shop” by computer, and then he was always available to help us follow up on making offers. He gave us very good advice regarding the market and what offers to make and also in assisting us in finding a very good and efficient lender to work with on a loan. We found Daniel to be very responsive by both e mail and phone and we wouldn’t hesitate to use his services again if the need arose. We highly recommend Daniel to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the Santa Barbara area.
My husband and I were first time buyers when we came to Dan, and knew little to nothing about the process of buying a home. Not only was Daniel an invaluable source of knowledge, advice, and information – he quickly became a kind of counselor to us, working with us through our questions and confusion, and was always listening and adjusting to us throughout our decision making process. He was flexible to our needs, knew when to encourage us when we felt intimidated, and knew when to caution us when emotions started running high. We knew and felt throughout the process that he was our advocate; doing his absolute best to bring us the best possible results. I would (and have) recommended Dan to anyone and everyone who is looking into purchasing a home in Santa Barbara.
