As your Santa Barbara and Montecito real estate agent, my objective is to provide you with the benefits of experience, market knowledge and essential real estate tools; thus enabling you in the process of making wise decisions regarding your real estate objectives.
My previous career experience involved the management of premier hotels and resorts. The demands of the hospitality industry necessitate the development of pro active planning, situational analysis, an improvisational management style, communication skills and most importantly personal relations. These skills make up the basis of working with buyers and sellers in a real estate transaction. If you are looking for a knowledgeable Realtor to guide you through the many steps of buying or selling Santa Barbara and Montecito real estate I guarantee you excellence in service and honest market insight.
