Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $475K in Goleta, CA.

Dana helped us purchase our home in the very competitive Santa Barbara, California housing market. As two teachers, we felt that home ownership was completely out of reach for us. Dana helped us jump into the market at just the right time. She coordinated the sale of our condo and had demonstrated her expertise as we were writing our offer on our home. Our offer was chosen out of multiple bids on a short sale home. From there, for 5 additional months she worked tirelessly on our behalf, pushing hard to get the final sale price to an unbelievable number. We absolutely recommend her to anyone buying a home in the Santa Barbara area. We can't imagine trying to buy a home without her!

Thanks Rebecca! It was fun helping you guys find a home for your growing family. You made it easy by identifying your parameters and being realistic in what it would take to find the "right" property. I love what you did to the house! You guys really had a vision and got to work making it a reality!

Bought a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $1.075M in Alta Mesa, Santa Barbara, CA.

Dana was phenomenal in her ability to find our current house based on the parameters that we wanted- no attempts to upsell us or work us into something less than right for our family. Her evaluation of the property, neighborhood, and expectations for the home were spot on, and her skills in the interaction with a very difficult broker and seller were very impressive. As my family has grown, I have asked her to keep an eye out for us for opportunities that would be worth looking at. Each of the several homes that she has brought to my attention has been a version of ideal for us, and even though the timing is not yet quite right for our move, she has not hesitated to help us educate ourselves on the types of properties available in our price range. I'm confident that when the time comes that we want to leave our present home, she will find us an outstanding opportunity that will be well vetted. I cannot recommend Dana more highly. I routinely refer friends to her and feel that in a world of self interested realtors trying to improve their bottom line, she is an exception, looking out for my family and I and working with our best interests in mind.
