kali finds her first condo

When Kali and I first met, she was getting her doctorate in psychology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She was originally from Ventura (which is just 30 minutes south of Santa Barbara) so she was familiar with the area and wanted to purchase her first condo.

At that time, Kali wasn't immediately ready to pull the trigger on buying something but she wanted to meet with me and a lender so she knew the proper steps to take in order to get ready.

A short time later, Kali was ready to officially begin her search. Being within walking distance to restaurants, grocery stores and shopping was important to her so we narrowed our search accordingly. After a bit of looking, we found the perfect 1 bedroom unit in a development just one block off of State Street (and near one of my favorite Italian restaurants). We wrote a strong offer, but unfortunately we got beat by another offer.

As luck would have it, I got a phone call from the listing agent a few days later and the first buyer wasn't able to perform so we got a second chance! We took that opportunity and now that beautiful remodeled 1 bedroom condo is Kali's home.

I recently closed on my first home in Santa Barbara and am happily moved in. As a first time home buyer it was important for me to have a real estate agent that was attentive and would help me feel empowered during what can feel like a really overwhelming process. Dusty was amazing throughout - and made me feel at ease during the entire process. He is competent, efficient, kind, and responsive. I felt like I had a true advocate during the entire process. He managed to help me navigate a tumultuous negotiation process over the condo that I had my heart set on - that landed me my dream first home property! I would highly recommend Dusty to anyone buying or selling property in Santa Barbara, and will definitely be utilizing his services for future home purchases!
