Realtor since 1993
Rookie of the Year 1994
With Village Properties since 2004
Real estate is a process of locating and negotiating the purchase of a home. Success requires market knowledge, diligence and discretion. I thoroughly enjoy the process and the relationships that I build with my clients as we travel through this process together. That is why I encourage my clients to continue to use my market knowledge as needed long after their purchase. And it is most rewarding when satisfied clients refer their friends.
Local corporations use my services for their Re-location needs during the recruiting process and beyond. Candidates receive a tour of the Santa Barbara area, the various neighborhoods and schools, while receiving an overview of current real estate prices. If a candidate accepts a position, I then assist them in finding a home to rent or purchase. The art of relocating top flight business professionals to our area is challenging and rewarding at the same time.
In addition to real estate, I enjoy working at one of the local high schools to promote the library and athletics. I have been PTA president twice and enjoy staying connected and involved with the education community.
What my clients have to say:
“We own our beautiful home in Hope Ranch thanks to Gail Cooley. Gail’s initiative located the house, and her intelligence and infectious warmth closed the deal. At the same time, Gail guided us through every step of the sale of our previous house. We can recommend Gail for any real estate transaction.” - Sandra and Eric Seale
“It was my pleasure to be able to work with Gail Cooley to close the sale of my home. Gail Cooley was instrumental in providing the correct information concerning my options in working with a challenging buyer. I was able to make an informed decision based on their knowledge and experience. I wanted you to know that I found Gail’s professional manner and personal services to be better than excellent. Gail’s efforts provided a perfect combination of smart representation and service during the chaotic and unusual requests and demands of the buyer and buyer’s broker. I will refer Gail Cooley and Village Properties to my business clients, friends and family."" - Marty Allen
“Thank you so much for all of your sincere time and energy during the search for our home. You have made this process fun and exciting, and thanks to all of your hard work we feel that we have found the perfect home for us. We hope to stay in touch throughout our time here in Santa Barbara and truly look forward to working with you in the future!” - Celeste and Lee Varner
“You are the greatest real estate agent ever! You stuck with us through a very tough sale never wavering in your dedication. You looked out for our best interests and became our good friend. You were innovative and knowledgeable, and what you didn’t know, you quickly found out. And you did it all with a great sense of humor and upbeat, positive attitude. We so greatly appreciate you and are so grateful for everything you did.” - Noni and Jim Patchell
