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 10/23

 

Shameless as it may be, here is my once every few months plug for a homeless pet that may just make your life whole. These puppies are just 5 months old and full of life. Actually 5 months is perfect. A lot of the puppy worries are done already and they are poised for the next phase of their learning. Adopted separately or together. The one on the left is a female, the one on the right is a male. They are very different from each other. The owner really wants to find a forever home for the puppy on the left but will adopt them out together if someone wants them both. The female is absolutely adorable. You don't even have to wash your face in the morning because she will happily lick you all over. Just a bundle of love and trust. She is a complete happy delight and quite the squirmy wormy trying to see everybody and everything at the same time. Pure joy in a fur coat.  A loving beating heart with fur on it.  The little boy is a bit more studious and an observer of everything. While not as effervescent, he makes up for that with his powers of observation, loyalty and steady love. Such a rock for one so young. A great pair or wonderful companions individually. They have both been raised with children and large dogs. They are simply too hard to resist. To see them is to love them. All shots are done. I am offering to pay for their spay or neuter fees to anyone that mentions this blog.   Yes, they are free to a good home. Emphasis on the word "good". Call me or my friend Rachel who so generously gives her time and love, rehoming deserving and special pets all year long. You can reach Rachel by call or text at 805.451.9990. Somone out there has room in their life for a snuggle bunny .... or two.

Daily and In Memory of Doris Banchik

The real estate community lost a top agent and I lost a close friend today in the untimely passing of Doris Banchik. Some of you out there knew Doris and may remember her rival real estate blog, Santa Ynez Uncorked. Friend, mentor, top producer Realtor, feisty protector, over achiever, wise beyond her years, brilliant scholar, imaginative marketer, lover of fine homes, world traveler and most important of all, a great humanitarian and kind gentle soul. Even so, you always knew where you stood with Doris. She was a no BS, cut to the chase, say it like it is believer in the truth and doing right by your fellow humans. Doris was also a snappy dresser who always looked like a million bucks and enjoyed beautiful things, places, food, good books and interesting people. Her journey through illness was an example to everyone of how to make the best of everthing, live and breath optimism, never give up and fight to the end. A braver woman I have never, and will never, know.  The valley lost a special person today. Along with her went a piece of my heart. 

Price Adjustment

4333 Tims Rd, Santa Ynez (20.9 acres, land only) Was 799K with a new price of 699K. This is not the actual address but one near by to approximate location. Directions are Roblar to Calzada, to Woodstock, left on Tims Road all the way to the end on left. 

Under Contract

98 Six Flags, Buellton (3/2 on .14 of an acre) 595K

Under Contract 

3570 Cerrito, Santa Ynez (4/3 on .29 of an acre) 775K

Sold

1710 Still Meadow, Ballard (main house and guest house on 8.96 acres)  I reported this as in escrow yesterday. Actually it had been in process for some time but not reflected that way on the MLS so you didn't see it until yesterday. Listed at $3,295,000 and sold final to my own clients for $2,800,000. This is a world class estate property built with exacting precision and quality by Mark Hemming. Say no more. Its gorgeous. Many thanks to my clients who certainly did their homework and because of that, ended up buying a property that suits them perfectly. Never settle unless you have to is a good mantra! I couldn't be more pleased how this property fits the need and I know many happy memories will originate here. I'll miss showing them property but am comforted knowing I made good friends along the way. 

Sold

1418 Remington, Santa Ynez (4/3 on 1.02 acres)  Listed at $1,165,000 and sold final for $1,127,000. A very pretty home with a classic great room floor plan on a huge corner parcel.

Santa Ynez Valley Real Estate Update 10/19

Things are heating up in Santa Barbara. Apparently the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors is suing the city for violation of homeowners 4th amendment rights related to its decades long draconian requirement of "zoning inspections" for all properties that transfer within the city.  You have to hand it to the SBAOR. That association of Realtors is actively and vehemently supportive of not only their agent members but homeowners in Santa Barbara as well. This is a wonderful example of how Realtor organizations make a difference in their communities. Read the entire story by clicking here. Its really quite interesting.

Just one thing today ...... 

Sold

485 Meadowlark, Santa Ynez (main house and guest house on 5.26 acres) Listed at $4,495,000 and sold final for $3,965,000.
