As part of our TV show, ‘A Place in the Sun: At home or Away’ one of the biggest difficulties is finding the right house, in the right area, of a city that we’ve never been to before. We often view 20-25 houses over 2-3 days in a city before selecting the final 3 that we show our house hunters. Working with Daniel on such a project was a God-send, as not only did he have a great portfolio to show us, but he had detailed knowledge of all the areas in and around Santa Barbara. He was quick to grasp what our needs were and was able to find us some very unique houses to show our clients. He was by far the best-prepared and most efficient agent we’ve ever had the pleasure to work with, and was always armed with a great can-do attitude and sincere smile. We had a very tricky schedule and he was a key player in helping us pull off what was a complicated shoot. Daniel was not only a pleasure to work with but he went out of his way and beyond the call of duty to help find us what we need. I wouldn’t have any hesitation in recommending Daniel Zia for anyone who is house hunting in Santa Barbara, and would instead rather urge anyone to get in touch with him as he offers a complete 5-star service with a warm and friendly manner to boot.
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.
Thank you for all your hard work, patience and diligence it helping us both buy and sell. This was obviously a big deal for us and you handled everything (including our quirky ways) with real grace. We so appreciate you and would not hesitate to recommend you to others.
