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 1/16/18

I'll just say this. If you list your property with an out of town agent what doesn't belong to the MLS in our area, your listing is virtually invisible to the agents here. The strong local agents who stand the best chance of bringing the best buyer to your property don't even know your listing exists. Why would you want just one agent to know about your property instead of hundreds? Please, just ask your out of town agent this question. Are you currently a member of the local MLS and will my property be listed there day 1? Not Santa Barbara. Not San Luis Obispo. Not Los Angeles. The Santa Ynez Valley. And don't believe that old adage that most agents here also belong to the Santa Barbara MLS. They don't and those that do don't check it looking for listings up here (I do belong but only so I can add my listings down there for SB agents to see). Use your heads. Be smart and work with a local agent. 

New Listings

Click here for the 7 new listings. Busy for January! Of special note: 

375 Glennora, Buellton 575K Beautiful perimeter location with nobody behind you. Fresh remodel still fits the original design for a seamless update. I love the large lots over here in Thumbelina with this one at almost a quarter acre. If location matters and you are shopping in the affordable sector, this is one to see.  

Back on the Market

129 Sharon Place, Buellton (3/2 on .15 of an acre) 599K I can't even imagine what it would cost to buy an original house in this neighborhod and execute this level of remodel. This one is done and you don't have to wonder what the remodel will actually cost you. One way to manage your remodel dollar is to buy one already done. You don't endure to have sleepless nights worrying about overages, change orders and what else your spouse will want next. This one is done and done well. Not just a low end DIY kitchen and bathroom remodel either. This home has had a total thoughtful quality makeover and brought current. Check it out. I haven't seen one in this neighborhood done to this level. What does 600K buy you in Santa Barbara or Goleta? A condo if you are lucky. Here, you get a gorgeous remodeled home with all the trimmings. Its a good one. See it. Ready for a smart buyer to come along and push the easy button.

Santa Ynez Valley Real Estate Update 1/11/18

Here is a shout out for any of you locals out there who have a guest room, a guest house, trailer or whatever you can spare people mud slide displaced in Montecito and Carpinteria. There is an active look out right now for places where people and/or their pets can go that literally have no place else to go. Hotels are pretty much inundated and really, not many people can afford to stay in a hotel for very long. If you have space to lend or rent, get in touch with Mike Brady who is an agent with Sothebys in Los Olivos. 805.391.0587 | Mike@SantaYnezLand.com

New Listing

3305 Sagunto, Santa Ynez (3/2 on .41 of an acre) 690K Check this one out. Wow. Open floor plan everyone wants, loads of natural light, tons of upgrades. This one is really unusual, in a good way. Not your typical dated home at all. Real hardwood floors downstairs. Appears to be a two story but is not, its a split level with the master on the lower level and a loft up. Kitchen is gorgeous with innovative design and current amenities. Bathrooms are gorgeous, right out of a magazine. Check out the number of windows in the living space which brings the outside in. Love it! Location is excellent at the very end of Sagunto looking over the open space between Sagunto and Mustang for a secluded reduced neighbor feel yet walkable to downtown Santa Ynez. Those on my Daily Insider email subscription will see the aerial parcel map. If you want it, see it. My guess is, it won't last long. This one will be a hottie. 

New Listing

1237 Hans Park Trail, Solvang (4/4 on .29 of an acre) 909K This is the coveted high demand Plan 5 in Skytt Mesa. The Plan 5's were sought after due to their true great room design, high ceilings, excellent floor plan and so much more. They are rarely if ever available on resale.  A very modern approach but still uniquely cozy. Note the drought tolerant landscaping for low maintenance and water costs. This is an interior parcel enjoying distance from traffic. Just like brand new. Extra generous driveway and a 3 car garage. 

New Listing

2221 Hill Haven, Solvang (3/3 on 1.01 acres) $1,350,000 Another big view beauty up on this hill. Panoramic views can be had from this secluded spot above the Alamo Pintado/Highway 246 intersection. Close to everything! A good sized home too at just under 3,000 square feet. Pool and extended decking make a nice outdoor entertaining or relaxing space. 

Price Adjustment

3231 Live Oak, Santa Ynez (3/2 on 18.82 acres)  Was $1,295,000 with a new price of $1,250,000. For those who think it isn't possible to live in the private ranch community for under 1.3, your luck has changed. This is no small guest  house like structure either. This is a full 2300 square foot home with killer views and a ton of privacy. Whether you want to add some updates or not, the value is definitely here. Privacy seekers take a look. Deeded riding trails nearby. Would make an equally good second home or full time residence. At this price, its definitely worthy of a place on your show list. 

Price Adjustment

673 Hillside, Solvang (2/3 on .08 of an acre) Was $659,900 with a new price of 625K.

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.
