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 6/18/19

Fav’s from Caravan Today

1853 Old Mission Drive, Solvang (4/4 on .32 of an acre) $1,195,000 Fun is written all over this one. Its big, bright and beautiful! Very well thought out with all the details both large and small completely taken care of. Not a boring or predictable floor plan, this home offers a lot of wow factor in a setting of good quality and tons of natural light. Whether you are living the quiet life or entertaining your friends, I promise this will be a full of character home that you will look forward to being in. Master suite is on the first floor and very nice. Downstairs are two more bedrooms one of which could be a dual master and another private sitting area with fireplace. Great set up for friend, kids, live in help or at home business. Upstairs is a huge loft space that is waiting for a job. Very pretty with the dormers and definitely wants to be part of every day living. Would make a lovely craft room, home office, kids play area, future bedroom, yoga or pilates studio or ?? Classy, fun and well put together. See it. Listed by Jan Finley and Wendy Carpenter of Sothebys.   

2544 Elk Grove Road, Solvang (3/3 on 2.26 acres) $1,275,000 A lot of the remodel has already been done here as opposed to many of these homes along here that are still original 1970 era. Lots of upgrades inside and outside. The thing I liked the best is the view windows face towards the nearby pastures and horses grazing instead of towards highway 246 like most of these homes do. This results in a gorgeous and always changing view of horses, open space and I also saw a super cute little donkey next door. For those that like new, check this one out. Tasteful and very SYV casual with some trending upgrades. Listed by Laura Drammer of BHHS.

Under Contract (2)

493 Scandia Drive, Buellton (3/3 on .28 of an acre) 519K It’s a bit rough around the edges but you certainly can’t argue with the pricing especially with a pool.  Listed by Jean Sedar of Coldwell Banker.

550 Aebeltoft Way, Solvang (3/2 on .24 of an acre) 799K Reviewed by us very favorably recently on our caravan review, not surprising it sold before some others in its price range. Really a good value and a superior location. Listed by Rich Condit of SYV RE.

Sold (3)

670 Shaw Street, Los Alamos (4/3 on .38 of an acre) Listed at 739K and sold final for 720K. Listed by Ealand and Sideris of BHHS

2110 Adobe Canyon Road, Solvang (barn on 5 acres) Listed at 745K and sold final for 735K. Listed and sold by our own Nina Stormo! Original list price was 950K with 331 days on market and selling for about 78% of original price. Nina: I have had the pleasure of working on this property a few times now, the original sale, through the lot split and now on the sale of the 5 acre parcel. I have always felt that it is a very special property with some of the most stunning views in the valley and an incredible location. It has been such a privilege through each of these transactions and I am always grateful that we live in such a gorgeous place and that I get to work on and spend time at these incredible properties.

1458 Kronborg Drive, Solvang (3/2 on .48 of an acre) Listed at 929K and sold final for same, 929K. Reviewed by us very favorably recently, its not surprise this one was only on the market 4 days and closed quickly just a couple of weeks later. One of the best spec remodels I have seen in a long time. Not just the obvious stuff either. Even small details were attended to. Sweet property with good views too. Setting the bar pretty high for future spec remodelers. Listed by John Nuzzolillo of Santa Barbara Brokers.

Santa Ynez Valley Real Estate Update 6/17/19

New Listings (4)

538 Elkton Lane, Buellton (4/ 3condo) 605K Sharon: Gently lived in since new in 2017. This is the bigger model with almost 2,000 square feet and a full separate suite on the lower floor. Lots of duplication of appliances etc. to make whoever occupies this ground floor suite feel like they have their own little kingdom. Low HOA here of $200 per month. Close to everything.

963 Skagen Drive, Solvang (5/3 on .93 of an acre) $1,175,000 Sharon: Preferred perimeter Sunrise Village as it backs up to much larger parcels along College Canyon behind. Could be Ballard school district (double check that).

1853 Old Mission Drive, Solvang (4/4 on .32 of an acre) $1,195,000 Sharon: Yes, this IS THAT ONE YOU CAN SEE FROM HIGHWAY 246! We all drive by this one every day, wondering what it looks like. Well, now you know! Is all of it gorgeous? Well, yes, actually it is! I’m always prepared for iconic properties to actually be a let down but not so with this one. Beautifully executed and presented, its both fun and elegant at the same time. I would be in heaven if I could walk to New Frontiers, into the Farmers Market on Wednesdays or for a bite to eat at Leonardo’s or in town, all of which you can do from this location. Charming, iconic and central to everything. Generous too at 3800 square feet. As today’s home shopper becomes more centric and looking for low walkability scores, this one really checks a lot of boxes.

2669 Oakcrest Lane, Los Olivos (main house, 2/1 barn apartment and more on 6.33 acres) $1,950,000 Sharon: Treasured Oakcrest Lane offers up yet another flat and usable in town ranchette dream property. This street is awesome because you can walk into Los Olivos in one direction and simply walk out the back security gate to Los Olivos Grocery in the other for supplies and food from breakfast to dinner.  Again, convenience to every day shopping and good eats being a part of this parcel. Charming main house, very nice guest apartment, magical gardens and some well planned out and complete horse facilities making this one pretty  much the whole package for horse enthusiasts. A mix of old and new, this is the SYV 1978 in a good way, with all the charm of yesterday, built well, with updates over time but still preserving the feeling of coming home. A very good value too for all this. If you like character, classic SYV living and perfect pricing, put this one on your show list for sure. Nina: This property was on the market last year for $2,495,000 and is now listed for $1,950,000, an over $500,000 price adjustment. It's a neat property with a lot to offer - meandering pathways through the gardens, a pool with slide, guest units and horse facilities. You really can't beat the location either. Oakcrest Farms is just walking distance to the town of Los Olivos. 

Under Contract (3)

500 Rancho Alisal Drive, Solvang (3/3 on .76 of an acre) 695K

310 2nd Street, Solvang (2/2 plus 1/1 on .23 of an acre) 750K Sharon: Price reductions do work. Price same down 6/12. By 6/17 its gone. Nina: At the reduced price, I figured this one wouldn't be around long. This is such a charming property with so much to offer, including a second unit! 

930 Ladan Drive, Solvang (4/4 on 10.77 acres) $1,650,000
