I am so grateful that my husband and I had Zia Group to help guide us through the process of purchasing our first home. Their ability to negotiate and write a competitive offer in a multiple offer situation made our dream of owning this home a reality. Their knowledge and expertise made the complicated process much easier to navigate. They were extremely responsive and easy to reach on the phone which made our very fast escrow feel more manageable. I will be recommending Zia Group to all of our friends and family in Santa Barbara area and will definitely use them for our future real estate transactions.

Daniel was a very professional Realtor with unending patience with our needs. We were moving from Colorado to Santa Barbara and I had started looking for houses through Daniel and the MLS as soon as we knew of our move. Daniel e-mailed me every time a suitable property came on the market, he went and previewed several houses for us, so that when we came to visit we had several planned to see. He was very courteous and polite during all our interaction and went far above and beyond what we would have expected, without even knowing if he would be successful in finding us an affordable property. I have only positive remarks to make about Daniel, his great ethics and moral character, and his boundless energy to seek the property that may just be the right one for us, and this was a challenge with such a distance between us and few visits to view properties. I would highly recommend Daniel to anyone looking for a Santa Barbara Realtor – they could not have a better person on their side.
In a town with approximately 10,000 realtors, it is a major achievement to be voted Best Realtor for multiple years by the Santa Barbara Independent’s annual poll. After having Daniel represent us for the purchase of our home, I see why he earned that award. Our transaction was not easy. We had challenges with a short sale from the seller and the bank. And, in today’s much stricter lending environment, our preferred method of financing was very difficult too. Throughout the entire transaction, from getting the offer in immediately upon the property going onto the market, to bumps in the road along the way, Daniel always offered knowledgeable advice and a positive yet realistic attitude. Never once did I feel like he was a sales person, but always a consultant with our best interest as first priority. As owner of five properties and having used five separate realtors, I can say with complete certainty that Daniel Zia is the real deal.
Working with Daniel was a very pleasant experience. He found us a great Santa Barbara home and was very knowledgeable throughout the entire process. He answered every question we had and made us feel at ease every step of the way. He was always available to us anytime. We would definitely recommend him enthusiastically to anyone looking for a Santa Barbara Realtor.
