More Zia Group Client Reviews
Recommending Daniel Zia to handle your real estate needs is the best referral we can make. We met Daniel as well as other real estate agents while vacationing in Santa Barbara. Daniel definitely stood out, so we followed up with him to pursue a home in the area. What makes Daniel outstanding is his extreme competency in all areas of a real estate transaction. He pays close attention to his clients’ desires and has innovative ideas to help you find the right property. Every time we talked with Daniel we continued to be impressed with his knowledge and straightforward remarks about the properties we were interested in. We looked forward to receiving his candid comments and answers to our questions, which provided us comfort as out of town buyers. Daniel guided us, rather than pushing us, through the purchase process. Daniel is a master at overcoming obstacles that seem to plague many real estate transactions. His service after the closing has been as expedient as before. We have leaned on him to recommend contractors, etc. and have enjoyed great success. Most of all, he is trustworthy and a delight to work with. We highly recommend using Daniel as an agent for those looking to purchase or sell a home.
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.
We have recently completed the purchase of our home in Santa Barbara. We had the pleasure of meeting and working with Daniel Zia in this endeavor. We have purchased numerous properties during our lifetime and have never been so favorably impressed with the representation offered by Mr. Zia. We were especially grateful for the patience that was afforded us. In retrospect we see that we were not at all clear what we were actually looking for. We never felt like we were being urged to buy a particular property. Instead we were intently questioned and listened to as our need and desire evolved into something quite different over the many months of looking. When we finally decided on the home we wanted, Daniel’s professionalism and knowledge became even more evident. He was always a step ahead of each of the many obstacles current buyers are met with. He had a ready list of competent tradesman for the numerous reports and inspections that are required, and scheduled all of them as if directing a well-practiced orchestra! We will recommend Daniel’s services to friends and family, feeling confident in his patience, professionalism, and fully deserving of our trust.
