Jon is a real go-getter. He walked around the neighborhood knocking on doors, and mine was one of them. He and his agency are the leading realtors in our part of East Side Santa Barbara. When it came time for me to sell, Jon was a no-brainer for my choice of an agent. He was always there with answers, and we sold the house, and closed on it, about six weeks after it went on the market. Jon’s also a personal guy. I’d choose him again, or recommend him, anytime.

Daniel Zia is 3 for 3 with us! When we decided to purchase our first condo with Daniel there was already an offer on it, but he knew how to make our offer stand out and we got the condo. Five years later we decided to upgrade to a new place, same scenario, same result. But this time we got it for under the list price. When we sold that first condo, Daniel told us what was worth upgrading and what wasn’t. And gave us referrals to replace the floors, counters and paint. It turned out to be a great return on investment and without the referrals it wouldn’t have happened. He priced it right and we had competing offers and sold for over asking price. I don’t know how he does it, but he just knows what to do. When we closed escrow he was on vacation, but his educated team negotiated some final details and took care of us.
I met Jonathan and before deciding to use his service he all ready gathered information on his own time for me to begin making decisions regarding the home. Jonathan Gilkeson went beyond what he had to do as a realtor helping the process I needed to accomplish closing the estate. He communicated quickly and checked in often to make sure I understood everything I was signing and needed to do. Even after the sale of the home, he was and is there to help with any follow up on the house. His honesty and integrity is worthy of excellent reviews. I recommend anyone needing a realtor to meet Jonathan Gilkeson as he made my selling experience the easiest and most pleasant possible.
Working with Daniel changed my whole opinion of real estate agents. He went above and beyond at every step, was always on the lookout for deals, and helped us find a great house when other Realtors had told us it would be impossible with our parameters. He never gave up and was always on our side. He never tried to ‘sell’ us on anything, never pushed something that wasn’t right. He gave us honest feedback and advice all the time and stuck with us on a search that lasted over six months. Without Daniel, I think we would have given up and called it quits; with him, we found a great house at a fantastic price. Thanks for everything Daniel!
