In addition to being a real estate Broker (as opposed to the designation of real estate sales person), I am proud to have been honored multiple times as a “Village Properties Top 10 Agent”, a certified EcoBroker, “Green” designation and hold the GRI-Graduate Realtor Institute designation.
I would like to tell you a little bit more about the EcoBroker part of my title and why that is what makes me the most excited about what I have been doing professionally for the past 16 years.
As Santa Barbara’s first EcoBroker, I am part of a nationally accredited part of our industry committed to the environment and my clients. I understand the value of drought-tolerant landscaping choices, energy efficiency, environmental technologies, reduced utility bills, and sustainable designs. Growing up on a ranch near Refugio with its own well, wildflower planted sod roofs, rain collectors, wind generator, solar panels and other green practices, has provided me with real-life education and contributed greatly to my passion for the environment.
While I focus on properties mostly located in the City of Santa Barbara, I also tend to attract and go after the unique properties that are located on the Gaviota Coast, in the Painted Cave community, the Trout Club as well as Rosario Park and West Camino Cielo. I enjoy the eclectic ranches, floor plans and especially the people who tend to live in these outlying areas. These “mountain” folks always have great stories to tell!
