I have bought and sold many homes over the years and I must say that this sale (Daniel represented me as the seller) was the best so far. Daniel was on top of things from the beginning to the end. It seemed like he was always one step ahead of what needed to be done. He did a good job working with the other Realtor and kept on top of the escrow proceedings. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a good Santa Barbara Realtor.

As a real estate professional of over ten years, I was impressed with Daniel’s recollection of our specific needs, the names of the members of our family, and of course bringing to us the right property. His command of the principles of real estate investing, his professionalism, and his integrity are impressive, and a rare combination in this industry today. Additionally, Daniel’s patience is unwavering. It took us 16 months and countless offers (Over 10) to secure a property here in Santa Barbara. At no point in time did Daniel waver in his generosity with his time and sage advice. In fact, he kept encouraging us even when we felt discouraged with our prospects. Once finally in escrow, Daniel kicked into overdrive to meet the aggressive closing schedule and challenging financing environment. We even threw in a curve ball and went on vacation during escrow! I wholeheartedly recommend Daniel and his dedicated support team to represent his clients as a bona fide fiduciary. You will truly be in ‘good’ hands.

My husband and I met Daniel a few years ago when I was looking for a summer rental in Santa Barbara. I thought he was so kind and generous with his time-for just a rental. We fell in love with Santa Barbara and always toyed with the idea of purchasing a summer home there. An unexpected opportunity fell into my lap in September 2009. I am now officially the owner of a Santa Barbara property purchased through Daniel, with the transaction taking place while I was in the comforts of New York, in less than 30 days. As luck would have it, Daniel sent an e-mail to us and we pretty much took his word on the condition of the property. He emailed us photos immediately and followed through exceptionally well. Whatever we didn’t know, Daniel did. His no pressure attitude, in conjunction with his confidence in himself and the property he had found for us, was undeniable. He was forthcoming with even the smallest details about the property. His honesty and his attention to detail were apparent from the beginning. We put great faith in him, as this was a long distance purchase on a property that we had not seen. I really could go and on about his professionalism. There was not one question that stumped him during this very untraditional purchase. He did his research and kept us abreast to all progress. His professionalism and knowledge were paramount. Let me say that finding Daniel Zia was an absolute gift to us! He facilitated me purchasing my dream summer home in a matter of 30 days and he has continued to offer his services post transaction. He has checked in on the house since we are not there. Knowing he is still available to me really puts my mind at ease. He puts his heart and soul into his work and you would be very fortunate to have him on any side of your real estate transaction!
