I met Zia Group via Zillow and they were quick to arrange showings of the properties I requested. They also prepared to show us a property that was not on my list and that is actually the property we purchased. We were pleased with their service and guidance.

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.

Daniel Zia helped us buy our first home. He was great to work with throughout the whole process and got us an amazing deal on the house! His connections in the community and expertise allowed us to overcome a long, complicated short sale and find the perfect lender. I would highly recommend Daniel and his team for anyone looking to buy a home in Santa Barbara.

Zia Group was a complete gem with which to work. Both my honey and I only had a small window of time in town to look at listings, and he got us to ten properties in one day. They were thorough, and detailed, and well informed. Even though we did not find our home on that day, with every new listing we were emailed, that we wanted to see, they made time to make sure we got a showing within our limited time constraints. I never thought that with us moving to the area from both Arizona, and Pennsylvania, respectively, that everything would go so smoothly! Zia Group handled all of our challenges, and answered all questions, big and small… They still are, even two months post closing. They are a valuable resource of local info and knowledge, and is always happy to help us! They’re amazing, and I can’t offer enough superlatives on their service and continuing friendship!
