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 3/25/19

Wow. A lot to talk about. 

New Listing

27 Henry Court, Los Alamos (3/3 on .12 of an acre) 519K Sharon: This is a nice little cul de sac far from the 101 and on the non gated side so lower HOA fee of $240 per year (not month). Big patio. Easy care. Your money goes a little farther in "Little LA". Nina:Los Alamos has become such a great destination for food and wine enthusiasts. Charming front porch to sit out and enjoy our beautiful weather and nice exterior paint colors. The location is a plus also, just off of Gonzales and walking distance to town. Listed by Jeanne Hollingsworth of Douglas Elliman. 

New Listing

2005 Kanin Hoj Road, Solvang (4/3 on .56 of an acre) 779K Sharon: Hidden location. 2700 square feet +. Privacy. Newer style amenities and design. Very convenient to eveything. What's not to love? Nina: Off of Alamo Pintado is a short cul-de-sac call Kanin Hoj (it's fun to say, isn't it?) allowing one to feel tucked away while being so close to town. It's an easy home to either move right into or to add your own touches. Listed by Dave and Marlene MacBeth of Berkshire Hathaway. 

New Listing

1525 N Refugio Road, Santa Ynez (3/2 on 2.64 acres) $1,150,000 Sharon: A lot has been done here since last on the market. Check out the prior pics from 2014 by clicking here for the old MLS link. If you are looking for more than an acre and less than 5, you'll know how hard this in between sized parcel is to find. Looks nice. See it especially if convenience is also on your radar. Nina: Nice location close to town. The home sits toward the back of the property allowing plenty of room in the front for your horses. With a remodel and high ceilings,the home is move-in ready. The pool and outdoor sitting area are a plus for entertaining. Listed by George Logan and Toni Mochi of 22 West. 

New Listing

3946 Clover Lane, Santa Ynez (3/3 plus 1/1 guest unit on 19.3 acres) $1,379,900 Sharon: Private ranchette at value pricing. We are used to seeing fixers at this price point but this one is different. It really is in excellent condition with a lot of well done updating. In nearly 2,000 square feet, this home offers a good platform for full time or part time living. Situated back by the Sedgewick preserve, the natural flora and fauna is something to behold. Very quiet, very private. The dwellings sit at street level for easy access with no steep driveway while the acreage fans out with a variety of topography from flat, to rolling to slope with some fantastic views from above. You can't beat this one for value. See it. Nina:This is a special property with its' tree lined drive, meandering walkways and mature oak trees, perfect for one who likes to hike out their front door. The house has had recent updates to the kitchen and bathroom and also has a guest suite above the workshop. Listed by Laura Drammer of Berkshire Hathaway. 

Back on the Market

4091 Baseline Avenue, Santa Ynez (3/2 vintage farmhouse from the 40's on 15+ acre) $1,595,000 Sharon: Back on the market due to no fault of the property. We had a ton of interest in this one the first time around. If you were one of those buyers that missed out, give me a call for a private showing. 2nd open house coming soon as well. Remodel the current vintage home and live the simple life or make it a rental after you build a beautiful main house. Acreage all flat and usable. All this flat and still fab panoramic views. Private well. Listed by Sharon Currie and Nina Stormo of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. 

Price Reductions

2110 Adobe Canyon Road, Solvang (5 acres, land with cool barn) This is a listing in our own inventory. Was 845K with new 100K lower price of 745K. This is one of the best last remaining undeveloped parcels in the entire valley. Gently sloping with a super cool barn that will make your imagination do some crazy stuff. Big panoramic views and nestled in this centrally located though ultra private enclave of beautiful homes. New pricing makes this land offering a best buy in its category. Listed by me! 

2096 Still Meadow Road, Solvang (4/3 on 2.49 acres) Was $1,495,000 with a new price of $1,450,000. Another excellent value. Listed by Patty Armor of Village Properties. 

1555 Alamo Pintado Road, Solvang (multiple dwellings and barns on 20.08 acres)  Was $3,195,000 with a new price of $2,999,999. That's a lot of 9's. Listed by Lori Jo Stribling of Remax. 

Under Contract

2903 Buckboard Lane, Solvang 969K Listed by Justin Etherton of KW

1566 Aalborg Court, Solvang 995K Nina:Solvang view location and a very tastefully done remodel. It's no wonder this home was only on the market for 14 days.  Listed by Kris Johnston of Engel and Volkers.

2751 Quail Valley Road, Solvang $1,099,000  Sharon: Sold to one of my own clients! I absolutely LOVE this property. It is done and done! Perfect remodeled condition with care and good taste. Great location with private back yard. Single level. Ballard school district. What's not to love? Nina: Dream home in a dream location, I knew this one would go quickly!  Listed by Michelle Glaus of Village Properties

616 Valley Oak Road, Solvang (4/4 on .49 of an acre) $1,125,000 Sharon: Priced perfectly for a win/win value. One of the coolest infinity pool and entertaining areas at any price point. Nina: Very nice perimeter Skytt Mesa location with beautiful finishes, views and a pool. Listed by Bill Grove of Berkshire Hathaway. 

1290 Via Dinero, Solvang (main house and guest house on 5 acres) $1,950,000 Nina:This is a lot of home for the price - a 5500 sq ft main home plus a guest house and pool. The pool overhang is a nice addition. Listed by Allan Jones of SYV RE.

New Listing

1062 Highland Road, Santa Ynez (5/5 + 1/1 attached unit on 1.23 acres) $1,450,000 Neat design with an attached but very separate 1/1 guest unit. Lot of space in this nearly 5,000 square foot home. Very large and spacious eat in kitchen with fancy separate dining. The living spaces are open yet designated spaces making decorating this home a lot of fun. Very nice master suite plus plenty of rooms for the kiddos and/or friends and family. The yard, last time I saw it, is fantastic with many interior windows taking full advantage of the big grass lawn views. This is a very usable parcel suitable for gardens, kids, furry friends or even a horse. Ideal location in Skyline Park on sought after Highland among other upper end in town homes. Very generous RV parking on the side of the garage. The circular driveway makes the curb appeal pop. You can click here for a link to a previous listing of this property with some other photos. Skyline Park flat rate water and roads fee is $415 per quarter. Listed by Patty Cotter of Village Properties

New Listing (relisted) 

1240 Cougar Ridge Road, Buellton (main house and guest house on 20 acres) $2,850,000  Went off market earlier this month at $3,495,000. Listed by Laura Drammer of Berkshire Hathaway

New Listing

3071 Via De Los Ranchos, Santa Ynez (or is it Los Olivos? (main house plus guest house on 250+ acres) $14,900,000.  Can a ranch be an estate? Can an Italian villa be a mansion? So many ways to love this luxury estate. For those of you out there with highly discerning tastes, its probably become obvious that we don't have much to offer in the true luxury estate category. Like seriously over the top. So this one will please those waiting for someone to relinquish their posh digs of this calibre. Listing says Santa Ynez, public record says Los Olivos with the latter being much closer. LIsted by Jeanne Hollingsworth of Douglas Elliman. 

Price Reductions

1765 Lewis Street, Ballard (2/ 2 plus vintage farmhouse on .60 of an acre)   Was 865K with a new price of 819K. Came back on the market with a price reduction. Listed by Jeanne Hollingsworth of Douglas Elliman.

Buyers agent was one of my former real estate students, Mary Bahnken of Berkshire Hathaway. You go girl! A world class property and exactly what many of today's upper end buyers are looking for including a convenient yet semi rural location. Like I always say, if I had a hundred modern farmhouses, I could sell them all. We need more of these (hint hint to any spec builders out there). Congrats Mary! You rock! Listed by Carey Kendall of Village Properties and Claire Hanssen of Berkshire Hathaway.

Santa Ynez Valley Real Estate Update 3/21/19 Open House & MTD Closings

Its Thursday so click here for the open house list for this weekend. If you haven't already, check out Parkview, Valley Oak, Ladan and West Oak Trail (see it for sure) on that list. Also, for those inquiring minds that want to know, click here for the month to date closed sales in north county. You can scan the columns that are meaningful to you (seller, buyer, address, amount sold for). A strategy based on what is important to you makes reading this report more meaningful. 

New Listing

3461 W Oak Trail Road, Santa Ynez (2/1 main house & bunkhouse on 20+ acres) $1,500,000 Sharon: Super cute hideaway or full time home. I love the location of this one off Calzada and just inside the gate so no need to meander through back country roads to get home. Fresh and like I said, super cute. In just under 1500 square feet, the main house is dressed up in quality trappings including PJ Milligan cabinetry. A petite home that lives big. Nice open floor plan for maximum light and access to views. The views from the covered porch are crazy good.  The bunkhouse is adorable. Separate shop/garage has endless possibilities. Really a little gem at an attractive price. Nina: I am a sucker for anything resembling a Ponderosa Ranch style porch. That along with the board and batten exterior and the charming finishes on 20 +/- acres with views? Yes please!  Listed by Laura Drammer of Berkshire Hathaway. 

New Listings

1130 Ladan Drive, Solvang (3/4 on 6.7 acres) $2,475,000 Sharon: I already showed this one last week. For those of you that like clean lines in a modern theme, you already know how few and far between these types of homes are around here. A lot of drama, high style and extreme quality went into the construction of this home. Th wow factor starts at the front door and continues on. In the back with the view you'll find the artistry doesn't quit as form and function combines with statuary and gathering places in addition to a one hole golf course complete with mini sand traps, all with tremendous mountain views. All this and convenience too. Nina: It's not often you find a home of this style in the valley with an elegant mixture of wood and stone. Quality finishes, clean lines, beautiful views of the mountains and close to everything.Listed by Randy Glick of Berkshire Hathaway

New Listing

2840 Montecielo Drive, Santa Ynez (main house and guest house on 15+ acres) $3,195,000 Sharon: Wowza! I am really looking forward to seeing this one in person. Dream home come true. Fine quality interiors in the house and guest house. Boutique vineyard. Big views. Outdoor kitchen. This is one of my favorite streets for many reasons but one of them is the unusual and very welcome convenience while still being rural and gentleman ranch category. This is a good one bound to not last too long. Nina: Beautiful vineyard home and guest house on 15 +/- acres with plenty of opportunity for outdoor living. With nice high ceilings, one room seems to flow to the next.   Listed by Micah Brady and Jennifer Nation of Sothebys

Under Contract

338 Odense Street, Buellton (3/3 on .25 of an acre) 669K Listed by Ealand and Sideris Berkshire Hathaway

Under Contract

1314 Edison Street, Santa Ynez (3/2 on .23 of an acre) 679K Sharon: Only 3 days on market. Not much in the 6's other than Buellton so no surprise it went quickly. We need inventory! Excellent condition with a pool. Listed by Terrence J Ryken of Compass
