A Unique Perspective




Being a native of Santa Barbara allows me the ability to see our community through a totally unique perspective. Santa Barbara, Montecito and Hope Ranch were my play ground growing up. Long bike rides to Hammonds Meadow and Padaro Lane beaches were a part of every summer. Exploratory hikes through the Las Padres National Forest long before they were chronicled on a web site or hiker’s guide were part of every spring after the winter rain replenished the aquifers and creeks.

These rugged trails took me to enchanting destinations, stunning water falls and cool inviting swimming holes among the massive sandstone boulders of Mission Creek. Day trips with friends and lazy afternoons swimming in the Santa Ynez River long before the creation of the Santa Rita Hills appellation and the now world famous Pinot, Syrah and Chardonnay will always be a part of my youthful memories. Today these memories and explorations allow me to share this history and insight with my clients who want to know more than just the price of a home in the Santa Barbara’s historic Upper East or Montecito’s Golden Quadrangle  .

Santa Barbara is the American Rivera, perched between the majestic Santa Ynez Mountains and the beautiful Pacific Ocean. A destination in the world that offers what everyone wants in a community they can call home. Beautiful sandy beaches, long warm summer evenings and the best kept secret by far, the glorious “pink moments”  of winter when the magnificent Santa Ynez Mountains are bathed in the pink glow of the setting sun and the stately Channel Islands appear to be painted on the horizon.

Now more than ever is your opportunity to take advantage of this truly stunning city located on the Central Coast of California. Prices have never been this affordable and may never be again. Yes, it is true, our market is storming back to life!  It is emerging from the recession.  Now is the time to take advantage of this market, before the inevitable resumption of climbing home prices begin to advance to new levels.

I have been selling homes in Santa Barbara, Montecito, Hope Ranch, Carpinteria and the Santa Ynez Valley for over 25 years. Call me and together let's explore this amazing and beautiful piece of American Paradise.
