Mark A Hunt

Mark's Story

Mark joined his wife Sheela Hunt at Village Properties in 2012 after many years working behind the scenes with Sheela on her $110,000,000+ in sales over the past decade in Montecito. Mark's background in Real Estate goes back to his grandparents, Bill and Elsie Hunt, who were agents and Brokers in Santa Barbara from around 1960 until about 1990 (his family has been in the area for over 100 years). Mark grew up going to their open houses and learning about Santa Barbara history through his families involvement in the Santa Barbara Historical Society, which was co-founded by his ancestor, Edwin Gledhill (for whom the library at the Historical Society is named after).

Mark also has a background in television and film production, prior to moving his family to Montecito in 2002. Mark directed and produced children's television as well as music programming and managing computer visual effects for movies for many years and he is a member of The Directors Guild of America. Mark's passion for Real Estate stems from his love of art overall... painting, photography, motion pictures, architecture, design, landscape, gardens, nature, etc... it all comes together in each and every home to complete the picture.

Mark currently writes a regular, Real Estate related column for the Montecito Journal, focused on Montecito Best Buys, and has a website by the same name, Through this site, Mark keeps followers up to speed on what he feels are the best valued homes and most unique opportunities for sale at any given time in Montecito. The site and those properties profiled make up a majority of the homes that actually sell each month, supporting Mark's picks as being those most likely to find a buyer in any given market.

It is with passion that Mark approaches any situation. From a new listing, to a buyer looking for their dream home in the Santa Barbara area, Mark is determined to satisfy the goals or needs of his clients.
