Customer Reviews

My wife and I have worked with Sharon for a little over a year trying to find the perfect site for our next home. During that time we got to know her as a first class professional. She asked us great questions to get to know what we wanted as a buyer, demonstrated an extensive knowledge of the market, and showed remarkable patience in working with us considering how long it took us to find just what we wanted. Throughout the process she was easily approachable and readily available. Unfortunately, once we finally found our dream home site we had just about every obstacle imaginable to overcome; overseas seller, lawyers involved, tight timing deadlines, you name it. Sharon was quite simply amazing through out the process. She approached every problem with a positive attitude and worked methodically to a solution. Sharon's calm, cool professionalism enabled us to navigate a very complex process without stress and enabled us to successfully purchase the real estate of our dreams! I have purchased quite a few homes over the years and can honestly say she is the single most capable real estate professional I have ever worked with. She has my utmost respect and I would highly recommend her.

Santa Ynez Valley Real Estate Update 7/26

This is a brave statement, but he said it. "ZERO percent chance of a rate hike today as Fed meeting wraps up" as quoted from Guy Rivera at Guarantee Mortgage. A lot of buyers out there should be doing the happy dance. If you haven't found your property yet, this sounds like a little breather for those concerned about a rate hike. Click here for today's rate sheet and then give Guy a call. No time like the present to rock and roll on getting your pre-approval done so you are ready to buy. There is a big difference between "want to buy" and "ready to buy". Ready to buy is better. 

Returning to the Market

2664 Janin, Solvang (4/3 on 1 full acre with pool) $1,039,000 Back on the market due to no fault of the property.  In fact it was only pending for a few days. This is a wonderful property in my own inventory so go see the property website at www.2664Janin.com. Remodeled with care and good taste. I love the kitchen. Even the old plumbing was removed and updated. So much new here, the list is endless. Just the right size pool, raised beds, fruit trees, privacy, lush lawns. The 3 car garage/shop is an added bonus. Popular Janin Acres location with fixed rate private water at $375 per quarter (not per month, per quarter).

Price Adjustment

360 St. Joseph, Los Alamos (2/3 on .12 of an acre)  Was 725K with a new price of 675K. This one is completely redone, including the detached guest studio. Turn key in this tiny town that is really making a name for itself. Just a few blocks to down town. I'd weigh about 500 lbs if I lived just down the street from Bob's Well Bread because I'd be eating there several times a day! We make the drive to eat at Bob's and Jamie's Bell Street Farms all the time. Yum! Charlie's is on our favorites list too. Definitely worth the few extra minutes to get to Los Alamos for unique and well done food options and your money goes a lot farther on housing too. 

Price Adjustment

501 Heritage Lane, Los Alamos (4/2 on .23 of an acre)  Was $559,500 with a new price of $539,500. Started in April at 609K. This is a really nice development with all single story homes that are well kept and pretty. Community walking paths and picnic areas. Low HOA of $45 per month. These floor plans are especially nice and the homes are located with easy access to highway 101 for commuter convenience. Even has a 3 car garage. 

Under Contract

2730 Ontiveros, Santa Ynez (house and guest house on 10.01 acres) $2,445,000 All I can say is waaaahoooo!!!! My own clients are the lucky buyers of my all time favorite farm house. Those who understand quality of workmanship and design will automatically fathom the enduring and outstanding character that is so expertly displayed here in this single story extensively remodeled home. Every corner, every nook and door leads to something amazing to love. Don't even get me started talking about this kitchen. One of the best kitchens in the valley. The land here is equally as fantastic. Flat, gently rolling, all usable. Views, very close to Los Olivos, Ballard school district. Seriously, what else could you want? When its right, its right. These buyers and this property .... definitely right for each other. 

Under Contract

2113 Rebild, Solvang (2/2 on .26 of an acre) 744K Cupid is a little late this year but he is still busy shooting his arrows apparently because this one was love at first sight for my lucky clients who were the successful buyers. This house is, as we say in cowboy country, done done! Floors, kitchen, bathrooms, windows, doors. Everything here is fresh as a daisy and absolutely current. No mystery expenses looming in the future as this house is perfectly remodeled already with a big open kitchen and tons of natural light from added sliders. The landscaping is both lush and easy to care for. The front courtyard is an inspired way to gain usable private yard space. Great location too in this hyper desirable Creekside neighborhood. Stroll on over to Sunny Fields park at the end of the day or down to a multitude of shopping and dining options. Some houses I just know are "the one". This home is "the one" for my clients who I could not possibly be any happier for. Only 6 days on market. 

Under Contract

3119 Tiana, Santa Ynez (3/2 on .78 of an acre) 749K Only 5 days on market. Fixer with a future!

Under Contract 

1374 Faraday, Santa Ynez (3/3 on .35 of an acre) 895K Gorgeous remodel! Not surprised it found a buyer quickly as well.

Santa Ynez Valley Real Estate Update 7/25

New Listing

3205 Amber Farms, Santa Ynez (4/3 on 1 acre) $1,190,000 Looking forward to seeing this one. 

Price Reduction

245 Meadowlark, Santa Ynez (main house and guest house on 5 acres)  This is one of my favorites. Was $2,595,000 with a new price of $2,495,000. The main house is one of the classiest ranch houses in Meadowlark. I adore the kitchen and great room. The master suite is gorgeous. High end quality with a generous sprinkling of imagination are put to good use in this home. The guest house is also a very good experience and totally custom. No cookie cutter guest house floor plan here. Land is all flat and usable with horse facilities and plenty of room for gardens, grapes and space for privacy. Near the end of the road, the privacy and quiet here is hard to pass up. 

Under Contract

490 Ranch Alisal, Solvang (3/2 on .69 of an acre) 695K I showed this home recently. Super cute. The grounds are amazing. 

Under Contract

258 Dairyland, Buellton (3/0 on .15 of an acre) 590K I think this model has 2 bathrooms.

Santa Ynez Valley Real Estate Update 7/24

New Listing

1233 Calzada, Santa Ynez (main house and guest studio on 1 acre) 985K This a listing in my own inventory so go to the property website at www.1233Calzada.com.  Completely renovated and brought forward with good taste and a color palette that will work with anyone's decor. Main house has 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The attached yet separate guest studio has a large room used easily for living and sleeping plus a full kitchen and bathroom. The guest studio even has its own fenced yard! The level of quality here is substantial as is the layout, square footage, acreage and outdoor experiences like pool, RV barn and shop. Down a long and private lane, the location is close to everything yet far off the main road. Perfectly renovated and perfectly priced. Open tomorrow Tuesday on broker caravan but the public is definitely invited. Come on by! Also open this Sunday the 30th from 1:00 to 4:00. Lots of choices to see this beauty as well as just good old fashioned ringing me up for a private showing. 

New Listing

2844 Alta St., Los Olivos (3/3 on .33 of an acre) 949K On the side of Alta farthest away from town, this short dead end street is popular with those wanting to be close to town but without traffic and tourism. Quite a nice little street actually. This one has had some remodeling and check out the pool. 

New Listing

1932 Viborg, Solvang (3/2 on .50 of an acre) 839K Picture this. A glass of wine, crackers (low carb of course) and cheese .... a herd of deer including their babies frolicking and grazing just outside your back fence. Out in the middle of nowhere? Nope. Right here within walking distance of many conveniences. Backing up to the open space between Mission Oaks and the houses below, the location is magical especially if you enjoy wildlife and open space. I have to wonder who doesn't? 

New Listing

3285 Buck Canyon, Santa Ynez (4/4 on 13.81 acres) $3,700,000 

New Listing

2389 Alamo Pintado, Los Olivos (10.1 acres, land only)

203 Menlo, Buellton (3/3 on .21 of an acre)  This is a listing in my own inventory. Was 595K with a new lower price of 575K which means this excellent value just got even better. Very clean and move in ready with recent upgrades and a newer roof. Light and bright with a generous master suite and upper view deck. The real river rock fireplace is a beauty but the star of the show is the huge back yard and multiple access points to it. Being at the end of the cul de sac does have its benefits, namely a big usable back yard. Add in the RV parking gate and pad. On almost a quarter acre, its pretty tough to beat this kind of outdoor experience at this price point. Check out what 575K buys in Santa Barbara and then come and look at this one. 

Price Reduction

1015 Ladan, Solvang (5/5 plus luxury guest unit on 6.04 acres) Was $3,100,000 with a new lower price of $2,995,000 making this fantastic custom home in over 6,000 square feet quite attractive. Compare this to many in this price range and I think you'll discover this property offers an abundance of advantages not the least of which are tremendous panoramic views, convenient location and campus like site plan. I love the library! 

Rental Reduction

1712 Odin, Solvang $3800 Village Collection. Was $3900 and now $3800 per month. 

Under Contract

1489 Aarhus #A, Solvang (2/1 condo) 379K Simply adorable. I showed this condo over the weekend and loved it. 

Under Contract

2664 Janin, Solvang (4/3 on one full acre) $1,039,000 Another listing in my own inventory! See the property website at www.2664Janin.com. Well done remodel with Janin's economical water. Better than new in every way with lots of natural light and an amazing kitchen. 

Sold

3343 Madera, Santa Ynez (3/3 on .23 of an acre) Listed at 749K and sold final for 715K. One of the newer homes in the village, built in 2004, with a true great room design. 

Sold

175 Camino San Carlos, Buellton (3/3 on 1 full acre)  Listed at 695K and sold final for 685K. 

Sold

676 Floral, Solvang (3/2 condo) Listed at 415K and sold final for 405K. Over 1800 square feet in this model.

Welcome

Welcome to one of the most beautiful places on earth. Rolling hills, vineyards, ranches, bucolic towns, pastoral scenes, big sky views, mountains, rivers and valleys are all here and easily accessible. Small town living melded with big city services makes the Santa Ynez Valley a special place unto itself. With easy proximity to southern California, the valley is home to full time, part time and sometime residents and visitors. Come for the beauty. Stay for the irreplaceable charm and sense of well being found only here.
