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 4/19/19

However you celebrate Easter, or don't, I hope you have a wonderful time off this weekend. Come and see me tomorrow at 1215 Sawleaf in the new Skytt Mesa homes in Solvang priced at an affordable 745K. I'll be there from 1:00 to 4:00 on Saturday. We'll be back here on Monday with all the news! 

New Listing(1)

3505 Montebello Street, Santa Ynez (3/3 on .25 of an acre) 739K  Sharon: This is the leg of Montebello not off of Faraday like you might be thinking but instead on the little known section running off of Tyndall (Willow or Olive to Tyndall).. Very private. I remember this one back when it sold last in 2014. Very unusual, artsy, a bit whimsical in a good way, original, free and easy and in well maintained condition. Good energy abounds (yes, houses do have individual energy ... you just have to be open to feeling it).  If you are looking for something that colors outside the lines but is comfy, cozy, memorable and definitely unique, I encourage you to see it. Not much around like this one. Nina: Santa Ynez home built in 1974 but with the vibe of a 20s California bungalow. Super charming. Nice close to town location.   Listed by Carole Colone of Berkshire Hathaway. 

Under Contract (3)

221 Oster Sted, Solvang (3/2 on .21 of an acre) 715K Sharon: On my favorites list. Listed by Debbie Vollers of Village Properties.

1415 Ribe Road, Solvang (4/3 on 10 acres) $1,449,000 Sharon: This is a bank owned property. Even rarer still at this price point. Listed by Sheila Siege and Debbie Rivera-Brosnan of California Property Group.

209 Willow Drive, Solvang (2/1 on .18 of an acre)  Sharon: Listed at 650K and sold final for 635K with 238 days on market with an original price of 683K for about 93% of original price and about 98% of last list price.Nina: Solvang home with an artist’s retreat. Listed by Kris Johnson of Engel and Volkers.

New Listings (5)

3490 Tivola Street, Santa Ynez (3/2 on .51 of an acre) 739K Sharon: This one is super cool because of the location. Sited on the edge of a creekside, its truly wonderful to be this close to nature with a lovely mature tree canopy for shade. Extremely well taken care of, this home will please even the pickiest buyer. Good floor plan too in over 1800 square feet. Sitting slightly below the road level for added privacy and proximity to natural flora and fauna. Cool landscaping too. Nina: A cozy home on an oversized Santa Ynez lot priced to sell. I am very impressed with the sprawling, manicured gardens, mature trees and creek side setting. This will be an easy home for someone to settle into! Listed by Rhoda Johnson of Berkshire Hathaway. 

2940 Quail Valley Road, Solvang (main house plus guest house on 1.5 acres) $1,150,000 Sharon: Wow! What a great opportunity. 2500+ 3/2 main house plus a 1/1 guest house on an acre and a half. Newer style construction from 1999 and even has views! Great location too, mid valley and close to everything in a highly regarded neighborhood of similar size parcels. Solvang address but this area of the valley is on Santa Ynez Water District water. No HOA. See it for sure. Listed by Misty Means of Keller Williams

1241 Hager Lane, Buellton (3/3 on 1.36 acres) $1,150,000 Sharon: These are the new homes just built in 2005. Nina:Quality construction on over an acre in Buellton with easy access to the 101. Nice option for those Goleta or Santa Barbara commuters!  Listed by Connie Meynet of Village Properties. 

1539 Mission Drive, Solvang (commercial building: $1,550,000) Nina: It's not often that a Solvang commercial building becomes available. This particular one has high visibility and neighbors the very busy breakfast spot, Paula's Pancakes, to up the foot traffic. The building is fully leased making it a good investment option.

1801 Stallion Drive, Santa Ynez (main house plus detached studio plus guest apartment on 10+ acres) $2,395,000 Sharon:  I had the heads up on this one as it appeared on SBPocket which is a pocket listing site that only local licensed agents can see. Because of that heads up, I already showed this property. It is a wonderful blast from the past. Santa Ynez Valley of yesterday in the 80's with a ranch house in impeccable condition, a very nice stall barn with runs, huge arena with actual good footing, some beautiful pastures and roads and driveways that accommodate trailers. Oh, I shouldn't forget the huge additional barn that you can actually park an RV or living quarters trailer in.This is a real horse property and thoughtfully designed that way. Land is all flat and usable. Shared well. Setting and horizon views in this area that is notably protected from wind at this slightly lower river side elevation. Access to to the river is right there. So much potential whether you have horses or not. Very private location with almost zero drive by traffic. Plus,the street name is pretty cool. Nina: The road less traveled leads to this 10 acre Happy Canyon Ranch, an outstanding option for your equestrian operation of any discipline. With a ranch style home, 14 stall barn and 7 paddocks, beautifully maintained arena and plenty of pasture space, this property will please horses and owners alike.Listed by Joe Ramos of Berkshire Hathaway

Apparently, in Australia, they take real estate marketing to a whole new level. Click here for a Youtube video. I especially like the part where he effortlessly jumps onto the kitchen counter top and back down again. This is a bit of walk on the wild side for sure! Still, its a pretty cool house!
