Welcome to Village Properties
We are committed to our customer relationships and the continued success of our agents. We believe it is of mutual benefit to develop and sustain these long-term relationships. In support of these beliefs, we pledge to continually "raise the bar" of excellence in the Santa Barbara Real Estate industry.
Our mission is based on the following:
A Spirited Group of Professionals
We raise the bar with our integrity and vitality. We are a productive, collaborative village of experienced professionals. All this is embodied in a "fun, family feel."
We raise the bar of our agents' success by providing superior staff and resources with an accessible management team, state of the art equipment and technology, professional newsletters and ongoing training and education.
We raise the bar with our unparalleled standard of customer service. We have premier agents, excellent support staff, a dynamic management team and superior marketing including the best website and the best radio and television commercials.
We raise the bar by actively giving back to our community through the Village Properties Teacher's Fund as well as our agents' individual involvement and financial support for many other local nonprofit organizations.
Village Properties: An innovative company setting new standards in real estate
The sales agents at Village Properties have been representing buyers and sellers in the Santa Barbara area for over 20 years. They are thoroughly experienced and well informed about the intricacies of real estate law, local codes and regulations, financing, and, most importantly, the sound analysis and pricing of Santa Barbara area real estate.
It takes more than just the facts to make the most of each and every transaction. It takes knowledge, chemistry and attention to details. Simply put, it takes a commitment to professionalism. You might call it good judgment, we call it sound experience. In the past 30 years, the practice of buying and selling real estate has not changed – until now.
Our talented and professional agents are supported by the highest standards of quality management, the best marketing, and the most comprehensive advertising program available. The marketing of your home is essential in achieving the best possible sale. Part-time careers and part-time commitment are not in keeping with our company philosophy: Real estate is a full-time career, requiring full-time commitment.
Utilizing local news and trade publications, and an expansive direct mail campaign allow us to provide unsurpassed advertising throughout the global real estate community and the local Santa Barbara market area.
Globally, Village Properties has top ten placement in the natural listings on Yahoo, Google, and MSN search engines for Santa Barbara real estate, Montecito real estate and many other terms. Clients who list their properties with us benefit when their home for sale enjoys excellent exposure on the web via villagesite.com.
When you combine extensive local market knowledge and state-of-the-art technology with judgment, you have an unbeatable resource at your disposal.
You have . . . Village Properties.
