Buyer Services

Extensive Local Knowledge

I am a Santa Barbara native and have been a full-time real estate professional with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services here in Santa Barbara since 2001. With 16+ years of experience and knowledge stemming from being involved in hundreds of sales and negotiations, I am consistently one of the highest producing agents and maintain a highly respected reputation within the entire real estate community. Being born and raised in Santa Barbara, I have extensive knowledge of our area from both a local’s perspective as well as a professional realtor.

With this local knowledge I will:

  • Listen attentively to your exact needs and wants
  • Get you well acquainted with every neighborhood and home in your price range
  • Help you eliminate any areas that will not work for you
  • Focus on the areas that work the best for you
  • Help you grasp and understand our local real estate market conditions, the current active inventory, and recent sales to help solidify your understanding and expectations regarding price and value
  • Bring to your attention ALL potential homes that could work for you
  • Be your eyes for a particular home if you are not able to visit it yourself (send pictures, videos etc.)

Expert in Negotiation

With excellent negotiation strategies and skills, including and MBA with courses in negotiation, I have been able to help hundreds of clients secure their home at the best possible price with the best possible terms.

With these skills I will:

  • Advise you on how to write a strong, compelling offer
  • Strategize with you on what are the most important factors when competing with multiple offers…to thus separate your offer from others
  • Ensure your offer is presented in the best possible manner
  • Do all that is required to get you your home at the best possible price, with the best possible terms

Reputation & Focus

Who you work with to represent you in our competitive local market is very crucial. I am proud of the reputation I have built, both among the real estate community as well as among my clients. This respected relationship I have with fellow agents and colleagues often translates into my clients getting the home they want.

With this in mind I will:

  • Maintain a focused and manageable sized clientele in order to provide the very best service to you
  • Stay true to my values of being a very hard working ethical realtor
  • Communicate often and clearly, to give you the best possible attention and service
