Working in British television can often be a demanding and stressful occupation. Expectations of UK viewers, producers and commissioning editors are incredibly high and as a tv crew you have to be confident and able to make the right decisions quickly. The key to the success of any show is having the right people on board to make it happen. Daniel was one such person that we fully relied upon to help us produce our tv show during our recent filming and short stay in Santa Barbara. Daniel immediately understood the criteria for our property search and worked hard to offer us lots of choice, showing us some wonderful properties and suggesting locations to film in. Daniel was on hand and willing to help us with many of our demands – often at short notice. Thankfully Daniel delivered on every single request and was always prepared to go the extra mile. Drawing on his business expertise he provided us much needed information and additional facts that have made it into the final script. Daniel was reliable, punctual, polite, a great communicator and easy to get a long with but above all he made working in Santa Barbara an enjoyable and memorable experience. In fact Daniel’s contribution was so impressive that he even made it into the filming! He makes a special personal appearance in the show with ‘A Place In The Sun’ presenter Jasmine Harman! To sum up, Daniel delivered.

Zia Group are absolute experts. Ultra accommodating, very knowledgeable, willing to explain the subtle nuances of home buying. As first time home buyers, we were thankful for the guidance and coaching, all based on a high level of trust. Zia Group is at the top of their game. They are total professionals. I couldn’t give a higher recommendation.

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.
