As a Luxury Property Specialist with prestigious BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY HomeServices – California Properties and recipient of the brokerage firm's "Chairman's Circle Gold Award," reserved for only the top 2% of its agents nationwide, Bryan serves discerning clientele in Santa Barbara, Montecito, Hope Ranch, Carpinteria and Goleta. A third generation Santa Barbara native and with more than two decades of business experience, he excels in the vital areas of market knowledge, financing, negotiation and complex contracts.
Bryan's background is truly impressive. It includes his many years as a Coldwell Banker Top 10 agent in both transactions and sales volume, and tenure as CEO of a thriving California Central Coast company and principal owner of another. He brings a wealth of significant real estate and construction expertise to the table as well. His extensive construction knowledge has been gained working with outstanding contractors and coordinating and overseeing all aspects of the building process – from basic remodeling, to major renovation and reconstruction projects.
Bryan attributes his success not only to his business acumen, but also to his focus on the client and to his no-drama transactions and respect from other real estate professionals. "One major advantage in this business," he emphasizes, "Is having a good relationship with other agents." His colleagues continually commend him for his work ethic and high level of professionalism.
"Real estate is something I've been interested in since I was a teen," Bryan says. "My father was a piano tuner beloved in the community, and I would drive him around to all the beautiful residences in Montecito, Santa Barbara and Hope Ranch. I loved the varied architecture, types of homes and so on. And I love people. Bringing the two together was a natural outcome."
Deeply committed to Santa Barbara, Bryan is also a devoted husband and father. His wife works in commercial real estate, and their two sons are successful in their own professions. His personal philosophy is manifest in his devotion to many non-profit organizations related to the heart, spirit, consciousness and being a better person overall. His mantra is "Changing the world, one person at a time." Active and athletic, he enjoys yoga, running, skiing, hiking, sailing and other water sports.
