We were very impressed with the professionalism of the Zia team. They provided candid and very accurate advice about the local market and our very eclectic neighborhood. They were also very quick in responding to unexpected issues along the way. They created a marketing strategy that brought buys to our listing right away. Over all, these folks were great to work with and they made a complex process much easier for us. We are very pleased with the rapid sale of our home.
More Zia Group Client Reviews
We met Dan and his team several years ago when we bought our first house, after many of our friends had recommended him. We had used another realtor prior to the Zia Group when helping my in laws buy a condo here. Truth be told no one had ever given me a recommendation at that point in my life and so I just started calling through the yellow pages. The difference between our first realtor and the Zia Group was night and day. Everything felt tailored to exactly what we wanted within what we could afford. His team always responded quickly and helpfully and surprisingly, to me, even on weekends. We had the opportunity to sell our condo and buy a different house in the last year. It could not have been easier. And since our first purchase years ago Dan is always the first person I recommend to friends.
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.
