Zia Group was instrumental in helping us purchase our first home in the area. Ours was a unique situation in many ways, and there were multiple points where we thought it was the end of the line and time to walk away. Zia Group, however, was determined to make it happen– when issues arise he is creative and bold, and we certainly benefited from the many relationships he has cultivated with peers in real estate-related industries. We couldn’t have done it without his help and the assistance of many others who hold Zia Group in high regard, and we absolutely will choose to work with them again if the need arises.

Daniel helped my wife and I purchase a Santa Barbara condominium by long distance since we don’t live in California. His website was very helpful in that we were able to “shop” by computer, and then he was always available to help us follow up on making offers. He gave us very good advice regarding the market and what offers to make and also in assisting us in finding a very good and efficient lender to work with on a loan. We found Daniel to be very responsive by both e mail and phone and we wouldn’t hesitate to use his services again if the need arose. We highly recommend Daniel to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the Santa Barbara area.

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.

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!
