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 5/17/18

It’s Thursday. You can check out open houses for this weekend by clicking here. A lot of good ones on the list.

Price Reduction

3485 Pine, Santa Ynez (3/2 upstairs and 2/1 downstairs on .38 of an acre) Was 800K with a new price of 750K.  Each level with its own kitchen. Lots of upgrades. Even has a pool! Across from the school for the little darlings to just skip on over before the bell rings.  Easy access to the village with a very low walkability score of 2.5. 

Under Contract

473 Dove Canyon, Buellton (4/4 on .20 of an acre) 749K

Under Contract

3025 W. Highway 154, Santa Ynez (3/3 on 4.79 acres) 995K

Under Contract

4062 Paseo Poco, Santa Ynez (4/3 on 5+ acres) $1,375,000

Sold

2081 Rebild, Solvang (3/2 on .26 of an acre) Listed at 729K and sold final for 695K. That’s a pretty good deal for Creekside where if updated, these homes are reaching well into the mid 7’s. Creekside is definitely in demand due to its great location, proximity to everything and friendly atmosphere with well-tended homes. Good floor plans too.

Santa Ynez Valley Real Estate Update 5/16/18

Two interesting quotes today from Guy Rivera at Guarantee Mortgage. "Guarantee Mortgage has a proprietary bridge loan that's available if you have not sold your house and want to buy up. Rate is below 3% and it comes with deferred payments, call me for details" and "What a difference a day makes. Rates have settled in on a new level but it does not seem to be bothering people that are buying new homes. The tick up in rates is the new norm. People recognize that and understand it". Click here for Guy's mid week rate update. Guys contact info is on the rate link. 

Price Reduction

3379 Tivola, Santa Ynez (3/2 on .24 of an acre) Was 529K with a new price of 509K. Original price 559K.

Under Contract

1522 Eucalyptus, Solvang (2/1 on .19 of an acre) 442K As expected, a short 6 days on market.

Under Contract

373 Kendale, Buellton (3/3 on .27 of an acre)  659K Covered parking for 8 cars on this one which is obviously a very hard to find characteristic, even at any price point. 

Under Contract

4145 Roblar, Santa Ynez (main house, guest house, producing vineyard and full horse facility on 26.48 acres) $6,600,000 One of my personal favorites. Built with unbelievable quality and attention to detail. 

Sold

1329 Calzada, Santa Ynez (5/2 on 1 acre) This is a listing in my own inventory. Listed at 895K and sold final for 885K. I had a lot of action on this property and could have sold it multiple times! It’s wonderful when sellers and buyers have very high integrity, commitment to the process and take full responsibility for the part they must play in the success of the sale. Believe me, it isn’t always so! With such a beautifully maintained property, the road to close of escrow is so much easier. A huge thank you to my sellers, the buyers and Gigi Hollister of Santa Ynez Valley Real Estate for being my partners in this easy and perfect sale. Loads of happiness in the futures of all parties. Only 27 days on market.

Santa Ynez Valley Real Estate Update 5/15/18

I was reminded just the other day, and wanted to remind you, that I can give you some 3D imaging on any property. A person looking at a large parcel wanted to see how much is really usable before they flew here from somewhere else. Its a hassle to get here only to find out the property won't work so these types of 3D imagery really can help. Sometimes all you see in photos are the flat places on a 20 acre property when in reality most of it is unusable slope. Not that unusable slope is a bad thing because in fact, its a wonderful privacy barrier in most cases. But if you are looking for flat usable pasture or planting land, you can save time and rule some out by reviewing 3D aerials of an entire parcel from multiple directions, a particular slope or a region as a whole. Here are a few views as illustration. If you want to see the contours or elevations of a particular property or perhaps a particular slope, let me know. I can also produce soils reports too which while not exactly official, can tell you a lot about a parcel and its potential uses. 

New Rental

1483 Kronborg, Solvang $3,200 per month

New Listing

2110 Railway, Los Olivos (3/2 on 1.15 acres) 925K I was really stymied by the address. Railway? This is Steel St. or so I thought. We do have Railway Ave in LO but it’s mostly on the other side of highway 154 with those pretty houses along it near where Grand stops and Figueroa Mountain starts and what serves as the driveway to Matteis Tavern but if you look at it from the air, you can see how once upon a time, Railway would have gone straight through I guess. All this time I thought this bend in the road was Steele St. but instead it was Railway with no sign. Hey, you learn something new every day right? Close to town but not too close. House placed on one side of the acreage leaving plenty of undeveloped space for horses as is the current use, RV storage, gardens or boutique vineyard. A very clean good sized home at over 2,100 square feet. Interested parties should call me for more details.

New Listing

1241 Deer Trail, Santa Ynez (3/3 on 1.8 acres) $1,265,000 I wish I had an eye for design like some people have. With no artistic ability, I have to depend on other people to design beautiful things and this home definitely got that in spades. Purchased last year and completely reinvented, this home went from being already pretty nice to totally wow! See the old listing pics here and look what the kitchen morphed into. Amazing!  Opened up, new kitchen, new baths, new flooring, new lighting … pretty much it’s been completely renovated. It’s amazing what a little (or a lot of) vision can create. One cool thing here for horsey people or those wanting to plant, there is a lovely huge flat pasture land below the house which is easy to dedicate to your passion without impacting day to day living at the house. Makes eating outside all that more amazing with this perimeter created view and visual access to your furry friends or vineyard. An interesting one for sure. Like I mentioned yesterday, the work here is done. Move in, know to the penny what the cost will be for your renovated house and start living the valley lifestyle. I think I feel a new HGTV show coming on along the lines of Love it or List It .... Buy It and Remodel or Buy It Already Done! Actually, that would be a good show. I'm taking intellectual credit for it right here! 

Sold

560 Rancho Alisal, Solvang (2/2 on 1 acre) Listed at 398K and sold final for 390K. This home is in the Alisal Ranch on leased land with annual land leases.

Sold

611 #2, Central Ave, Buellton (3/3 condo) Listed at 395K and sold final for 400K.

Sold

203 Valhalla, Solvang (3/3 on .42 of an acre) Listed at $1,050,000 and sold final for $1,022,665.  Gotta love that wrap around deep porch!

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.
