Let's Connect. Today.
I know that finding the right Agent to represent you is a choice not to be taken lightly. That’s why I'd love to get together to walk through your needs, the scope of your goals, and your budget. Let's see what is going to work best for you. I work hard to get you the best deal, and I have the unique ability to explain complicated processes in easy to understand ways. I love being able to save my clients time by listening and focusing on meeting their needs, using every detail of information to get them the best deal. But for me, it's the personal connection that I consider my specialty.
I love Goleta - I live, work and play here. I am more than happy to help you with your search or sale anywhere from Carpinteria to the Santa Ynez Valley. I have extensive knowledge of what is available in the "affordable" range in our market. My goal is for you to find something you love, but also something you can afford! That's no easy feat for many of us living on the Central Coast.
A multi-generation Santa Barbarian, my grandparents grew up in Santa Barbara. I attended Foothill Elementary, La Colina Junior High and San Marcos High School. I am a UCSB Alumnus with a Master's Degree from Cal State, Channel Islands. I have extensive local school and neighborhood knowledge - ask me any questions!
I spent over a decade as a laboratory scientist. From that work I bring to my clients: focus, dedication and a no-nonsense work ethic. I developed a passion for real estate after the purchase of my first home in Goleta in 2012 where live with my wife and two elementary school aged sons.
I am now a full-time real estate agent on the South Coast. I provide up-to-date information about the local market and maintain a positive and straightforward attitude to get the job done. I sincerely enjoy getting to know my clients and working with other real estate professionals to close the deal.
I provide my clients with the information they need to understand the real estate market specifically suitable to their situation so they can make confident decisions about buying and selling property. When I take my time to research properties, I am looking out for your present and your future and looking specifically for you. I also specialize in working in the "affordable" range in Santa Barbara. I like helping others achieve the dream of home-ownership in this fantastic area. This area truly is paradise and all it's cracked up to be.
For those of you interested in selling - I'll do what it takes to get you the best offer for your home. I will assist you with before-market preparation and inspections to maximize the sale price. Additionally, as part of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, I have access to an extensive network of peers and resources to network and market your home and, most importantly, get you the best deal.
About the Santa Barbara Area:
Known for its beautiful beaches, abundant views, and endless entertainment, Santa Barbara is paradise on California's Central Coast. More locally, this area is called the South Coast and includes the adjacent city of Goleta (pronounced Go-LEE-ta for those of you not from around here). Santa Barbara, Goleta and it's adjacent communities are stunning. Boasting a rich Spanish history, this area is known as the American Riviera for its perfect Mediterranean weather.
Additional adjacent communities I serve include Montecito, Hope Ranch, Summerland, Carpinteria (aka Carp) and Isla Vista (or, more commonly called, I.V. - where the majority are UCSB college students). Within each of these commuities are smaller neighborhoods, each with their own unique personalities, schools, culture and attractions.
Other nearby, and typically more affordable, communities within an hour-or-less commute to UCSB and other area employers on the South Coast include Ventura, Buellton, Solvang, Santa Ynez, Los Olivos and Lompoc.
