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 4/24/19

Today, Guy Rivera at Guarantee Mortgage said in his daily blog "Inflation around the globe is low and economic growth is soft - this will keep our interest rates relatively low for the foreseeable future.  The Fed has said they are watching the slowdown around the globe when considering monetary policy.  The two-day Fed meeting will take place next week and with growth around the globe weak and disinflation creeping in - there is virtually zero percent chance of a hike and likely none for quite some time". That should make those rate hawks out there happy and make those of you still shopping feel a little more secure in waiting until they find just the right thing. 

New Listings (4)

3353 Long Valley Road, Santa Ynez (18.93 acres) 550K Sharon: Seller willing to consider a trade. Nina: A parcel that has always been appealing to me for its' location and building potential, coupled with a seller who is interested in a trade, makes this property very interesting. Priced at under $30,000 an acre in Woodstock Ranch, it's a good candidate to buy and hold or to build your dream home. Listed by Maryann Foss of Sothebys. 

612 Hillside Drive, Solvang (4/3 on .24 of an acre) 825K Came on the MLS today as already pending. Listed by Jan Finley and Wendy Carpenter of Sothebys.

1260 Olesen Drive, Solvang (3/2 plus casita on .24 of an acre) 895K Sharon: I was the listing agent on this home when it sold last June. At the time, it was only on the market 27 days because it is a super awesome property. It was mint condition at the time and I assume it still is. The color palette is all currently trending so will please any of you magazine/Magnolia/HGTV groupies out there.  A year ago, all the flooring was brand new. Upper level lighting choices and other amenities everywhere and a dynamite pergola and yard. The casita is wonderful for older kids, family, guests or a fab home office or gym. The builder built very few of these casita models so if you have been waiting for one, nab this one for sure. Great location too and don't overlook the climate controlled wine room in the garage ... it can hold a serious amount of wine or use it to store food etc. or even as a safe room. A real winner in its class. Nina: All of the components of a move-in ready home are present here. The property has been tastefully done and the landscaping is fairly low maintenance. The guest casistas is an added bonus. Well priced for what it has to offer.  Listed by John Frederick of SYV RE. 

620 Foxen Lane, Los Alamos (4/3 on .93 of an acre) $1,095,000 Listed by Suzy Ealand and Ken Sideris Berkshire Hathaway

Price Reductions (2)

800 E Highway 246, Solvang (winery on 60+ acres) Was $5,749,000 with a new price of $5,495,000. Sharon: This is a good way to take the cost mystery right out of a winery start up. Buy the winery without the start up part! No sweating bullets as the costs go higher. No daily tough decisions to make. No worrying about permits. No wondering what the final costs will be. You know what the cash up front investment is going to be instead of simply winging it and you don't have to wait for market share to ramp up either. Preferred high traffic and visibility location and easy turn in from highway 246 along this gorgeous section of the road. Formally high end horse farms, these ranches are making some mighty fine wine these days. A very pretty campus with easy access for wine enthusiasts, this is basically a turn key winery waiting for a new owner to enjoy. This is about as easy as it gets in this business, now at an even better price. Nina: This property makes sense for someone looking for a ready wine operation. It has a lot to offer in the way of location and facilities, varietals, structures and land area. The grapes and production facility are already on-site so if you're looking to move your wine operations to the Santa Ynez Valley, this could be your opportunity! . Listed by Claire Hanssen and Brett Ellingsberg of Berkshire Hathaway
