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.

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.

Daniel, Veronica, and team did a great job marketing our home and getting in buyers. We had a bit of a complicated sale, with the city of Santa Barbara creating all sorts of unnecessary complications, but the Zia Group stuck with us and we completed the sale.

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.
