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.

Jon recently helped our family find the perfect home. He was relentless in seeking options but was very easy going making the process as stress-free as possible. He knows the market well and is cognizant of what is best for his clients. I would happily recommend Jon to any friend or family member when looking for their next home!

Thank you for making the selling of my home easier to bear by being kind, courteous, upbeat, and very professional.

We met Dan and his team several years ago when we bought our first house, after many of our friends had recommended him. We had used another realtor prior to the Zia Group when helping my in laws buy a condo here. Truth be told no one had ever given me a recommendation at that point in my life and so I just started calling through the yellow pages. The difference between our first realtor and the Zia Group was night and day. Everything felt tailored to exactly what we wanted within what we could afford. His team always responded quickly and helpfully and surprisingly, to me, even on weekends. We had the opportunity to sell our condo and buy a different house in the last year. It could not have been easier. And since our first purchase years ago Dan is always the first person I recommend to friends.
