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.

I want to again thank you for the time and energy you directed my way during my home search. You are obviously an amazing and hardworking agent and I wish you and your family the best of fortune!” Barbara Bain”I have bought and sold many homes over the years and I must say that this sale (Daniel represented me as the seller) was the best so far. Daniel was on top of things from the beginning to the end. It seemed like he was always one step ahead of what needed to be done. He did a good job working with the other Realtor and kept on top of the escrow proceedings. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a good Santa Barbara Realtor.

Jon was extremely professional and helpful in purchasing our first home in Santa Barbara. He communicated with us throughout the process and helped us to find the perfect home and then hired and scheduled contractors for us as we were on a tight schedule to move in. We would highly recommend him and would definitely use him again for future real estate transactions! He is wonderful to work with and went out of his way to make everything run smoothly.

I knew Daniel was a good Real Estate agent but I had no idea how great him and his team actually are. Everyone on the team was extremely helpful and willing to go out of their way to make us happy. We were buying a home for the first time and they dealt with my never ending questions with such patience. It was always about us having a good experience and what is best for us. Along with that, Daniel was able to negotiate a killer deal. The company is a leader in the area for good reason. Very highly recommended.
