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 6/22/18

Wahoo! The weekend is here. Beautiful weather too. Have a great weekend and check back here Monday for all the news. In the meantime, Click here for the open house list for this weekend and click here for week ending rates from Guy Rivera at Guarantee Mortgage in Solvang and Santa Barbara.  Also for you numbers geeks out there, First American produces these weekly reports that you might find fascinating in a geeky sort of way. These are weekly reports that talk about pricing, inventory, sales, rental values, buyer or sellers market etc. I have them broken down into town or city and I'll be posting them whenever the reports are emailed to me. These reports are from a few days ago:  

Santa Ynez (click here)

Buellton (click here)

Los Olivos (click here)

Solvang (click here)

Price Reduction

567 Rosenvej, Solvang (3/4 on .32 of an acre)  Was $1,125,000 with a new price of $1,095,000. Nice reduction after only 24 days on market. Why let it linger? Serious sellers react to the market, showing feedback and reality checks. I like it! Great strategy and its like free advertising. Anyone watching this property on Zillow etc. or with saved searches here in this price range will get an email. It pops back up on our radar on the MLS. The ripple effects of a price reduction should not be underrated. That being said, a whole string of tiny reductions is just plain annoying. Nice meaningful reductions, like this one and larger, are really a wonderful tool in the selling toolbox. 

Sold

30 Bear Creek, Buellton (3/2 on .11 of an acre)  Listed at 575K and sold final for 570K. This is the model with a little over 1200 square feet. Some upgrades and nicely maintained.

Santa Ynez Valley Real Estate Update 6/19/18

Today was a travel day and includes yesterday, Monday 6/19 and today 6/20. I made the return trip today so I'm finally back on the central coast just in time to avoid 100+ degree weather in the Sierra's. Good timing on my part. :) One of the reasons I settled on Penn Valley CA as a place to buy a second home, besides the fact that I already own a home in the best place in California right here in the SYV so had to pick second best, is PV has this amazing walking, biking/horse back riding trail that goes through the little town from down town and all the restaurants etc. to one of the best natural parks and off leash dog parks in the state and also the rodeo grounds. I can ride my horse to the arena. I can drive my golf cart to breakfast. It is amazing to watch how many adults and children make use of this path every day all year long. Sure I had to give up a little dirt as did my neighbors but the result is a community asset so well loved and used by all, it was totally worth it for all the neighbors along here who gave up a little road frontage to make it happen. I remain hopeful the SYV will make a long path joining our contiguous communities a reality some day.  Ventura and Ojai are a wonderful example of how to do just this (see the article on that here). The SYV would be even more perfect if we had the same community asset. I'm hopeful enough people will get together to make something like this possible in the SYV one day. Here is a photo of the trail right in front of my house up north. Well loved by all.

New Listing

440 Sycamore Drive, Buellton (5/3 on .17 of an acre) 755K This is the model with over 3,000 square feet and a loft upstairs. Directly across the street from Oak Park for the little ones and the school grass yards beyond. This is a very well manicured convenient street in Sycamore Ranch. A lot of square footage for the money. 

Under Contract

235 W Hwy 246 102, Buellton (3/3 condo) $419,757

Under Contract

1929 Alamo Pintado Road, Solvang (4/4 on 10+ acres) $2,595,000 Only 19 days on market during this listing period. 

Sold

373 Kendale Road, Buellton (3/3 on .27 of an acre) Listed at 659K and sold final for 645K. On the higher end of pricing in Thumbelina but this one does have more bells and whistles than the average home in here. Many upgrades already done, added space, pool, two car garage PLUS a 6 car additional garage. Only 18 days on market during this listing period.

Sold

1210 Deer Trail Lane, Solvang (4/3 on .90 of an acre) LIsted at 810K and sold final for 795K. Original price was 829K with 123 days on market. Nice flat acre and solid house with a lot of possibility. Homes in Santa Ynez Oaks, while having a Solvang address, enjoy the more economic Santa Ynez Water District water rates. As a point of interest, the HOA in this community was dismantled some years back.

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.
