Loren Banner & Steve Shephard
This was the first home purchase for both of us. We actually thought of trying to go it alone, but I’m so glad we didn’t! Daniel was always responsive, available for questions throughout the day and flexible with his time. He took the time to describe all the paperwork and to walk us through anything we were concerned about. He explained inspections, what our expectations should be, and looked out for our needs every step of the way. I particularly appreciated his suggestion to take the time to write a thoughtful letter of introduction to include with our offer. It allowed us to connect with the out-of-town sellers in a way that I don’t think would have been possible otherwise. I also particularly appreciated his willingness to communicate electronically, which is a standard in my daily business practice and probably the only way I could have fit house-hunting/offering/financing into my busy life. Our overall experience with Daniel was terrific! I especially appreciated his sincere attention to retaining a relationship after the sale. I feel like I have a realtor I can count on for life.

Daniel Zia is 3 for 3 with us! When we decided to purchase our first condo with Daniel there was already an offer on it, but he knew how to make our offer stand out and we got the condo. Five years later we decided to upgrade to a new place, same scenario, same result. But this time we got it for under the list price. When we sold that first condo, Daniel told us what was worth upgrading and what wasn’t. And gave us referrals to replace the floors, counters and paint. It turned out to be a great return on investment and without the referrals it wouldn’t have happened. He priced it right and we had competing offers and sold for over asking price. I don’t know how he does it, but he just knows what to do. When we closed escrow he was on vacation, but his educated team negotiated some final details and took care of us.
Daniel Zia provided exceptional service to my family and I when we chose his service to represent the sale of our family home in Goleta. In addition to Daniel’s great service he also exercised impeccable integrity and conscience in his duties. He was extremely knowledgeable regarding the Santa Barbara real estate market and provided a stress free selling experience.
