Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $850K in Solvang, CA.
We have bought and sold many houses over the years and Doris is far and above the best realtor we have ever used. We really appreciated her expertise, local knowledge, and most of all patience! She showed us a variety of property types and helped us to figure out exactly what we wanted, then helped us to find just the right house for our family. I would use her as a realtor again in a minute, but now I also think of her as a friend.

Bought a Single Family home in 2007 in Solvang, CA.
. After many months of looking in the area and several unsuccessful attempts, we decided to call Doris Banchik. She assessed our needs and goals and came up with the right house at the right price. Purchasing a home had become a major pain; Doris brought it back to being an adventure once more.
We love our home, it is perfect for our needs and budget. Ms. Banchik's professional services both during and after the purchase were incredible.

Doris Banchik represented me in the sale of my Woodstock Ranch property. I cannot praise her thoroughness and diligence highly enough. Doris's long experience in the Valley gives her an amazing understanding of the market. That, combined with her Harvard MBA, makes her an unbeatable ally for a buyer or a seller. She is also a kind and caring person who helps clients through the ups and downs of real estate transactions. I highly recommend Doris Banchik as a real estate professional. As the former General Counsel of a Fortune 500 company, I recognize quality work. Doris consistently and cheerfully provides it.

In 2001, we moved from Menlo Park to the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley and were fortunate to find our realtor, Doris Banchik. We met first over the phone, and Doris was the only Realtor (we interviewed several) who spent the time to get to know us well. She found us a home we loved and lived in for 6 years. In 2007, it was time to move, and Doris sold our home in 3 days!
We consider Doris our friend for life. She should be a life coach and is the most wonderful person and realtor you will ever meet.

"Go Getter" would be an understatement to describe Doris. I retained her real estate services three times in the past 2 years and I would describe her as highly motivated and the consummate professional. In all three instances we were under time constraints to sell two properties (1 over 1.5 million and the other around $500,000) and also to buy a townhouse (around $200,000). The price of the listing did not matter to Doris, Doris' services were exceptional in each case. Through Doris' hard work and knowledge of the local real estate market, she was able to pull a rabbit out of a hat and close the deals on positive terms. To accomplish these transactions in this economy was nothing short of a miracle and I will be forever greatful for her efforts. You can bet that if you retain Doris' real estate services, you will receive five star treatment and effort from her. In fact, in years of buying and selling real estate, I have never met a more detail oriented realtor or one with more sales acumen. I believe if Doris can't sell it, no one can. If you want a realtor that will be completely honest with you and will go above and beyond to close a deal on your behalf, Doris is your woman.
We wanted to thank you for all that you did for us. You made the "buying a home" process much easier and less confusing. You made everything work out great- you are a miracle worker. We love the the new place and are making a few improvements in the yard and garage. Everytime we walk in our home we think of you and how lucky we were to have you in our lives and our home buying experience. I cant wait until we get to recommend you to others.
