More Zia Group Client Reviews

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.

Daniel (and his team) are amazing! We purchased our first home with Daniel and sold it with him. He made the whole thing seamless, both times. He gave us a great contact to our new city, and “held” our hand during that purchasing process too. I know they are doing an amazing job helping the Santa Barbara community members frind their best homes.

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.
