Daniel was a very professional Realtor with unending patience with our needs. We were moving from Colorado to Santa Barbara and I had started looking for houses through Daniel and the MLS as soon as we knew of our move. Daniel e-mailed me every time a suitable property came on the market, he went and previewed several houses for us, so that when we came to visit we had several planned to see. He was very courteous and polite during all our interaction and went far above and beyond what we would have expected, without even knowing if he would be successful in finding us an affordable property. I have only positive remarks to make about Daniel, his great ethics and moral character, and his boundless energy to seek the property that may just be the right one for us, and this was a challenge with such a distance between us and few visits to view properties. I would highly recommend Daniel to anyone looking for a Santa Barbara Realtor – they could not have a better person on their side.

My husband and I met Daniel a few years ago when I was looking for a summer rental in Santa Barbara. I thought he was so kind and generous with his time-for just a rental. We fell in love with Santa Barbara and always toyed with the idea of purchasing a summer home there. An unexpected opportunity fell into my lap in September 2009. I am now officially the owner of a Santa Barbara property purchased through Daniel, with the transaction taking place while I was in the comforts of New York, in less than 30 days. As luck would have it, Daniel sent an e-mail to us and we pretty much took his word on the condition of the property. He emailed us photos immediately and followed through exceptionally well. Whatever we didn’t know, Daniel did. His no pressure attitude, in conjunction with his confidence in himself and the property he had found for us, was undeniable. He was forthcoming with even the smallest details about the property. His honesty and his attention to detail were apparent from the beginning. We put great faith in him, as this was a long distance purchase on a property that we had not seen. I really could go and on about his professionalism. There was not one question that stumped him during this very untraditional purchase. He did his research and kept us abreast to all progress. His professionalism and knowledge were paramount. Let me say that finding Daniel Zia was an absolute gift to us! He facilitated me purchasing my dream summer home in a matter of 30 days and he has continued to offer his services post transaction. He has checked in on the house since we are not there. Knowing he is still available to me really puts my mind at ease. He puts his heart and soul into his work and you would be very fortunate to have him on any side of your real estate transaction!
