A happy Friday to you! Its a long weekend for Memorial Day so we won't be back here until Tuesday as all the offices are closed on Monday. I am definitely around though so if you want to open a few doors together this weekend, let me know. I join millions of American's and patriots around the world this weekend in remembering all those in the military who have lost their lives protecting us, our freedom and our country. All gave some, some gave all. 

** Come and see me Sunday from 12:00 to 3:00 at 5510 Baseline in Santa Ynez. 

New Listing (1)

969 Old Ranch Road Road, Solvang (1 acre, land only) 439K Sharon: I really love the location of this little very private gated enclave plus its a cool street name. Maybe 5 minutes to El Rancho but most people don't even know this place exists. All the homes in here are beautiful and perfectly kept. Very quiet. Actually I think this is one of the most preferred parcels in here because so much of it is usable and the hill behind isn't as steep as some. Public utility water already to the site and obviously power is nearby. Tidy little HOA with tennis court, play and picnic space plus a huge undeveloped natural pasture area and a security gate. HOA in here is $250 per month. Nina: One acre parcel is a great tucked away location with a water meter already onsite.  Listed by Rich Condit of SYVRE

I've had the pleasure of selling this property twice now as these sellers purchased it with me as their agent back in 2015. It was a great property then and it still is. Beautiful location and tons of charm. A huge thank you to my seller clients whose trust I so appreciate. Good luck in your next adventures!
