Working in British television can often be a demanding and stressful occupation. Expectations of UK viewers, producers and commissioning editors are incredibly high and as a tv crew you have to be confident and able to make the right decisions quickly. The key to the success of any show is having the right people on board to make it happen. Daniel was one such person that we fully relied upon to help us produce our tv show during our recent filming and short stay in Santa Barbara. Daniel immediately understood the criteria for our property search and worked hard to offer us lots of choice, showing us some wonderful properties and suggesting locations to film in. Daniel was on hand and willing to help us with many of our demands – often at short notice. Thankfully Daniel delivered on every single request and was always prepared to go the extra mile. Drawing on his business expertise he provided us much needed information and additional facts that have made it into the final script. Daniel was reliable, punctual, polite, a great communicator and easy to get a long with but above all he made working in Santa Barbara an enjoyable and memorable experience. In fact Daniel’s contribution was so impressive that he even made it into the filming! He makes a special personal appearance in the show with ‘A Place In The Sun’ presenter Jasmine Harman! To sum up, Daniel delivered.

Jon was a fantastic realtor that was incredibly easy and enjoyable to work with. He worked hard to find us the perfect home in Santa Barbara, going above and beyond what was expected of him. Jon is clearly very knowledgeable about the area and was able to get us to see our house before it even hit the market! He continues to stay in touch to make sure everything is going as planned and we would absolutely recommend him to anyone searching for a home in the Santa Barbara area.

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.

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.
