Real Estate. Real Impact.
Daniel Zia is the Founder and CEO of the Zia Group, a boutique real estate sales and investment group backed by Keller Williams Realty, the largest real estate company in the nation. As the primary Realtor and Broker-Associate for the Zia Group, Daniel has led his team to become the #1 Real Estate Team in the greater Santa Barbara area, selling more homes each year than any other team. He has been voted the #1 Realtor by both the Santa Barbara Independent and Santa Barbara News-Press Best of Readers’ Polls, which include the opinions of about 120,000 readers.
Daniel started his career with Prudential California Realty, where he rose to the top 1% of Prudential agents worldwide. After being recruited to Keller Williams, he again rose to the top, earning the Keller Williams Platinum Level award for being in the top 1% of KW agents worldwide. He has helped train Prudential and KW agents, spoken before the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors, and presented at the annual Keller William’s Family Reunion convention (15,000 agents in attendance).
This success comes from Daniel’s focus on adding value to his clients, rather than pursuing relationships as a means to a sale. He specializes in helping buyers locate homes not yet on the market (approx 15% of homes in our area sell this way every month). He is also a certified short sale and foreclosure expert.
