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.

From our initial conversation right through the closing of escrow on our home in Santa Barbara, Daniel was amazing to work with. His professionalism, communication skills, and pleasant demeanor contributed to this real estate purchase being the smoothest experience we have ever undertaken. I would highly recommend Daniel and his staff without reservation.

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.

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.
