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 7/18/19

Our office in Santa Barbara asked us agents to relate some wacky stuff that has happened to them over the years …. Sort of a “day in the life of a real estate agent” sort of thing. Got me thinking back to some of the ridiculous things that have happened. Here is my list. All of these things have happened to me at least once, sometimes more. And you all think being a real estate agent is easy!!!!

  1. Agent being chased or licked by a horse, cow or rooster during a showing (all have happened to me). 
  2. Buyer gets knocked over by horses butt. 
  3. Agent trips and falls in squirrel hole in a pasture ... then buyer does the same thing on purpose so the agent doesn’t feel stupid. 
  4. Agent tries to shoo cows out of the road so they can get by with their client in the car and steps in fresh cow poop in the process. 
  5. Agent cleans up dog poop with a pooper scooper then takes dog for a walk so the showing can happen. 
  6. While standing on the lawn during a showing, the sprinklers come on. 
  7. Seller is passed out drunk on the sofa snoring and won't wake up so the agent just shows the property anyway. 
  8. Agent has to get a ladder and rescue a cat from the roof because it’s making so much noise the showing won't go well. 
  9. No, you can't just show a photo of the money inside your home safe and have that be good enough to qualify as proof of funds. 
  10. Agent is half way in and half way out of a raised floor crawl space with her feet sticking out (yes, like the Wicked Witch of the West) so she can see the raccoons living under there. 
  11. Agent has to remove a dead squirrel from the pool quickly before the buyers show up (actually on another occasion, a deer had been attacked by a mountain lion and the listing agent had to break out a shovel and bury it before the buyers came - that was super gross ... and on another occasion, the buyers kids were found by the pool throwing rocks from opposing sides of the pool to see who could make the drowned rat go to the opposing side of the pool the fastest). What is it about pools???? 
  12. Agent is showing a vacant property at night when the cops show up with guns drawn (neighbor had reported a burglary in progress). 
  13. Mother cat had kittens so everybody ended up in the master closet sitting on the floor playing with the kittens. 
  14. Agents vehicle battery spontaneously died in the entrance to the driveway on Halloween. Nobody could come in or out until the tow truck came hours later.
  15. Client was in the military and lived in Japan and couldn't come here until after the sale closed. They didn't see the house in person until after they had paid for it - talk about pressure! 

New Listings

1799 Cougar Ridge Road, Buellton (4/3 on 20 acres) $1,349,000 For the horsey folks out there that like a lot of privacy, this one is for you. This area is pretty sandy and forgiving which is good for horses feet. My mare lived on sand for years which definitely added to her usable lifetime (Dr. Herthel (RIP) once told me that much of the colic they see at the clinic is from grass, not sand).  Nice runs which can be seen from the house for you horse mommies that like to be able to see their horses all the time. Small arena is augmented by miles and miles of private riding trails in this gated ranch community. Near the end of Cougar, the privacy here is pretty unique. Listed by Chris Jones of BHHS Santa Barbara.

Back on Market

2834 Grand Avenue, Los Olivos (2/1 on .16 of an acre) 839K Listed by Christine and Evan Lash of Grand Avenue RE.

Santa Ynez Valley Real Estate Update 7/11 to 7/17/19

So I had this internet problem. Actually, it took Xfinity 3 days to figure out it was all due to a failure in an external hardware part about 4” long that cost maybe $5. Unfortunately, that was after a couple of trips to Best Buy and $300 later. Oh well.  Thank you to the wonderful technician who came out and spider sensed his way to the solution. Back in business.

New Listings

Click here for the 6 new listings since last Thursday.

Nina: 2750 Quail Valley Road: This is a great option if you are looking for move-in ready in Ballard School District, a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home in almost 2900 square feet on over an acre of land. The home has been completely remodeled with care and the floor plan is open allowing lots of light to stream through. I love that the pool is situated to overlook the pastures and barn so you can enjoy a view of your horses while swimming. The kitchen and dining areas open up to an oversized porch that's perfect for dining on summer evenings. 

Nina: 3520 Tivola Street: Cute and cozy Santa Ynez home with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms in just over 1600 square feet on almost a quarter acre. I'm always a sucker for the ones that feel like tree houses and this is it, with tree filtered light coming into the house and a deck that sits among the oaks.

Nina: 959 Old Ranch Road: This property brings to mind large gatherings with extended family and friends, enjoying bbqs and time around the pool. Every inch seems to be the perfect gathering place, from the outdoor living to the kitchen and bar area. The house is located in the gated Brierwood Ranch off of Quail Valley Road. The home is over 5000 square feet on over an acre of land.

Nina: 2750 Quail Valley Road: As expected, this property went into escrow with multiple offers. Here's what I had to say a few days ago when it went on the market: This is a great option if you are looking for move-in ready in Ballard School District, a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home in almost 2900 square feet on over an acre of land. The home has been completely remodeled with care and the floor plan is open allowing lots of light to stream through.

The kitchen and dining areas open up to an oversized porch that's perfect for dining on summer evenings. 

Nina: 2669 Oakcrest Lane: Another property that went into escrow with multiple offers. I felt that it was priced really well this time around, especially considering this particular location, lot size and all of the amenities. 

Sold

Click here for the 11 (yes 11!!) properties that have sold.

Nina: 310 2nd Street: This is a particularly special property and I'm so happy to see that it has sold. Whether it's an investment or a primary residence, I'm sure the new owners will love it. What a great place
