Meet the Team

    As a client-centered Santa Barbara real estate group, we would love to put our team and knowledge to work for you. We are the #1 Real Estate Team in Santa Barbara, selling more single-family homes and condos than any other team. We also consistently represent more buyers in Santa Barbara than any other team. And we have been voted the best real estate team in Santa Barbara in both the Santa Barbara News-Press and the Santa Barbara Independent. Our listings often sell within the first week, with multiple offers, for more than the asking price.

    As you explore the services that the Zia Group | Keller Williams Realty can offer you, we are confident that you will see there is no better way to buy or sell your home. We are looking to develop a life-long relationship with you, and we are eager to prove our expertise and show you how we can help.
