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 11/21

Happy birthday to my amazing dad, Richard Cusolito. 80 years young today. He met my mom when he was an MP in the Air Force, stationed in England roughly 60 years ago. I was born in England and as an Air Force brat, I have dual citizenship though I have lived in the US most of my life other than many summers in the UK. My dad is quite simply the rock that has anchored my life, a shining example of ethics and doing what you say you are going to do. He has exemplified the idea of hard work, earned success and a never say die attitude, not to mention being a mentor to not only me and my brother but also many other people along the way. His professional accomplishments are wide, varied and enviable. Even today, after being out of the car business for many years, his name (Mr. C) still matters. He is a legend. My dad went onto being a popular real estate agent in the Ventura/Oxnard area and later in the desert. Unbelievably, he is still working to this day. Coincidentally, my mother managed to pass away on his exact birthday two years ago today. She was whimsical, wise and up for any adventure so long as it involved a car ride, old tunes on the radio, thrift shops and breakfast at some greasy spoon diner along the way. I love my Dad who reads this post every day and I miss my mom who I wish could.

You know how you don't know how good something is until its gone? Well, thats the way I feel about our old MLS system. This new one ...well .... I have some words for it that aren't polite. Yesterday I tried to post the sold properties from last Thursday through yesterday but as I heard from multiple readers, the link only had one property. I wish I could click my heels together three times and have our old system back. Alas, thats a fairytale. So, back to reality, click here for what is hopefully the real list of the sold properties. 

Just one thing today .... 

New Listing

609 Central Ave., Buellton (3/2 on .04 of an acre) 422K Nice homeinium listing! Squeeky clean and like new. This is the model with about 1300 square feet. These properties live more like a single family home than a condo. Cute little yard and an attached 1 car garage. Low HOA fee of $226 per month. Good location for commuters and the location is well off the main part of Central. Lots of pics on the link so check them out.

The identity of those on my list is not shared and I don't spam anyone. My daily updates are not a complete list of everything that happened today but instead events the general reader might find interesting or items you need to know to make good decisions. Readers should consult other venues of information gathering to find out more or to complete their information gathering efforts but this is a great place to start and I write every day Monday through Friday letting you know what I know. Transactions noted here were completed by myself and other Realtors.

Santa Ynez Valley Real Estate Update 11/20

Today's post includes the last two days of last week. 

New Listing

Click here 5 new listings.  Of special note, 2540 Baseline in Ballard just came back on the market at 995K. New lower price and the guest house is finally now available for interested buyers to see. Main house and guest house on 1.26 acres within strolling distance to the Ballard Inn. Ballard school district obviously. If you like quaint and vintage, you'll love this one. Very authentic with much of the original 1912 character still in place and beautifully preserved. 

Price Reductions

Click here for 3 price reductions. Of special note, 3611 Cerrito in Santa Ynez came down to 637K. 

Under Contract

Click here for two properties that just went under contract. Both coincidentally are my own listings. Click here for 3 more that have been in the pipeline a little longer. 

Sold

Click here for 7 sold properties. Wow! 7! Of special note, my listing at 2075 N. Refugio which went in multiple offer at $1,100,000. A big thank you to my friend and pro real estate agent Patty Murphy of Sothebys for making it so easy. To my sellers, all I can say is I'm sorry this will be our last transaction together. It has been an honor and a privilege.

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.
