We recently completed the purchase of our home in Santa Barbara after years of searching for just the right place. We had the pleasure of meeting and working with Daniel Zia during this long 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 and 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.

Thanks for your outstanding work in obtaining an early sale of the above property and at a price that far exceeded my client’s expectations. From the beginning of your representation, I was impressed with your knowledge of handling Trust Estate real property sales and your professionalism in turning around what had been a frustrating experience in my client’s dealing with a prior broker. When I have the opportunity of referring clients for future marketing and sale of real property in the Ventura/Santa Barbara area, I will do so with confidence that you are the best of the best.
Jon was extremely professional and helpful in purchasing our first home in Santa Barbara. He communicated with us throughout the process and helped us to find the perfect home and then hired and scheduled contractors for us as we were on a tight schedule to move in. We would highly recommend him and would definitely use him again for future real estate transactions! He is wonderful to work with and went out of his way to make everything run smoothly.
I wanted to express our appreciation to you for all of the time you spent meeting with us, and for the very thorough CMA you put together. As always, the experience working with you and getting your perspective on things was very valuable and the picture of professionalism.
