A 'low pressure/high service' approach to real estate sales is one of the many reasons why Bob Curtis of Village Properties is the Realtor of choice for so many Santa Barbara residents.
Bob has consistently been recognized as one of Santa Barbara's Top Producing Agents over the last twenty-three years and has garnered numerous awards for exceptional productivity and impeccable service. Bob has also gained the respect of the entire Santa Barbara real estate community which is evidenced by being named the 1996 Realtor of the Year by the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors and being elected to serve as the 1998 Association of Realtors President. Selected by his peers every year since 1997, he has been a permanent fixture on the California Association of Realtors Board of Directors. Bob has chaired numerous committees at C.A.R including the MLS/Computer and Business Technology Committee, Realtor Risk Management/Consumer Protection Committee, Communications Advisory Committee, and acted as Regional Chair of the coastal communities from Simi Valley to Santa Ynez.
Bob relies on a broad based marketing plan to sell homes quickly at expected prices. He utilizes effective advertising campaigns, but more importantly, he personally markets properties through networking with other agents throughout California. He has embraced technological changes as a dynamic tool for marketing properties and is considered to be one of the most technically proficient Realtors in Santa Barbara. As a result, his listings sell FAST and for TOP DOLLAR!
Education has been another aspect that has factored into Bob's ongoing success. As a former teacher, he finds that by educating his clients on all facets of their transaction, the escrow process is eased. Educating clients is intricately tied to communication and in this area, Bob soars. Not only does he keep the doors of communication open with his clients, but he is a stickler for following up on all affiliated personnel; lenders, escrow officers, appraisers, title representatives, etc. to ensure that the sale proceeds smoothly and the escrow closes in a timely manner 'with no surprises.' His ability to explain the ins and outs of home loans and escrows has helped many families reduce the stress that is related to what, for many, is their biggest lifetime investment. Known locally as the "Realtor's Realtor", Bob is a popular instructor among licensees. In fact, several of his clients are or have been involved in the real estate industry.
While Bob has demonstrated a true affinity for helping people with all of their real estate goals, his enthusiasm for his career, which he launched in 1986, a positive attitude no matter what the circumstances, and his friendly sales manner that has helped him build a fine repeat and referralbusiness.
