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.

More Zia Group Client Reviews

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.

Zia Group was instrumental in helping us purchase our first home in the area. Ours was a unique situation in many ways, and there were multiple points where we thought it was the end of the line and time to walk away. Zia Group, however, was determined to make it happen– when issues arise he is creative and bold, and we certainly benefited from the many relationships he has cultivated with peers in real estate-related industries. We couldn’t have done it without his help and the assistance of many others who hold Zia Group in high regard, and we absolutely will choose to work with them again if the need arises.

I cannot speak highly enough of Daniel and the team at Zia Group. From our first meeting with Daniel, we were confident the Zia team would help us find the right property for us on our timeline, negotiate the best price for that property and walk us through the home buying process. As first time homebuyers this made the process worry free and smoother than I could have imagined.
