Laura & Robert Ray
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.
More Zia Group Client Reviews
Zia Group came highly recommended to me by my coworkers and based on my experience I will certainly pass the recommendation on. As a first time homebuyer I had a lot of questions about all aspects of the process and Daniel Zia was my starting point for all of them. Daniel is a great listener and very personable and from our first meeting was very responsive, clear and thorough despite my very stupid questions. My emails and texts were always immediately answered, no matter the time of day. He is very aware of details, and noted many minor things that I would not have noticed during home tours and drafting offers, and yet he does not lose the big picture. I ended up having major troubles with my bank not meeting deadlines and nearly lost the house due to it. Zia Group did not hesitate to talk to the bank and use his and his groups influence to hurry the bank along, without which I would have lost my home and several thousand dollars. Buying a home is a tough process here for anyone. Zia Group did a fantastic job and took a huge load off my shoulders and my mind. I look forward to working with them again and I know they will be a huge asset to anyone in real estate market.
My husband and I were first time buyers when we came to Dan, and knew little to nothing about the process of buying a home. Not only was Daniel an invaluable source of knowledge, advice, and information – he quickly became a kind of counselor to us, working with us through our questions and confusion, and was always listening and adjusting to us throughout our decision making process. He was flexible to our needs, knew when to encourage us when we felt intimidated, and knew when to caution us when emotions started running high. We knew and felt throughout the process that he was our advocate; doing his absolute best to bring us the best possible results. I would (and have) recommended Dan to anyone and everyone who is looking into purchasing a home in Santa Barbara.
