I have been a Santa Barbara resident since 1973 and have seen this city change and morph into the elegant, sophisticated community it is. The location is one of the most beautiful in the world, with the Grand Sierra’s at its back and the sprawling Pacific at the front. The Spanish architecture and the dry, warm weather year round, all combine to make this one of the most beautiful and desirable places to live in the world.
I settled here because it reminded me so much of my home. I was born in NYC but raised in St. Thomas, the Virgin Islands where my parents and grandparents pioneered real estate throughout the fifties and sixties.
At that time, St. Thomas was a primitive island, and I remember my sister and I going on showings with Dad. We trudged through the jungle in the steaming tropical weather as he sliced away the brush with a machete. We always ended up in a location overlooking a breathtaking view of the Caribbean, with white sand beaches and palm trees. But, we had to go through the bug-filled steamy mountain-tops to get there! I swore I would never be a REALTOR!
Fast-forward a lifetime, and here I am at Keller Williams, Santa Barbara. A place just as beautiful and equally desirable as the Virgin Islands. I am so happy to be a part of one of the premier real estate companies in the world. Happily, I will not have to take you through a jungle to show your property, but I do look forward to helping you buy or sell property in the breathtaking landscape that is Santa Barbara, CA.
