“Dan handled everything in our very complicated real estate transaction which involved a partnership agreement and co-mingled funds between an IRA and private funds. I’d highly recommend using Dan for anything in SB county.”

“Thanks for your work over the years showing us many a ranch property. We are very happy with where we landed. … love the view, I love the house itself and we all are enjoying poking around the one of a kind ranch. You always focused on getting us into the right place for us and I’m definitely a reference for you.”

“Best broker help ever…I have been through the process a number of times, and most often you wonder how in the world the broker collects such a large fee, for what looks like doing some simple paperwork, and organizing a few inspections. In this particular case, the transaction was as complicated as it gets, and Dan not only negotiated the process as well as possible, but he avoided a number of pitfalls that another broker would not have seen coming at all. Besides this, Dan is a great guy and a joy to work with.”

“I want to thank you for being so patient, and so relaxed and positive through this whole thing. It got crazy in the middle and we really appreciate that you just were helpful without at all trying to rush things. You were a class act, and of course, I will recommend you without hesitation whenever the opportunity arises. Hopefully we’ll run into each other soon at the Ranch, and best wishes to you and your family.”

“It was a pleasure working with you …. We very much appreciated your not only being in charge of sales, but also taking the initiative in so many areas necessary to keep the deals moving. We would absolutely recommend you to anyone interested in property in the area, and hope to do so.”

“Over the years, I’ve worked with a number of real estate agents for both residential and commercial properties. Dan Johnson is by far the best agent with whom I have ever worked. First, he is an extremely hard worker. Maybe I just had bad luck in the past, but my previous agents tended to be, to put in bluntly, lazy. After I would start working with them, they would often become slow or inconsistent in returning my phone calls and emails. Worse yet, they would always defer my complex questions to others (“Well, you’ll need to consult your attorney about that question”). Dan is the opposite. He is always very prompt in returning my calls and emails. If I don’t call him, he’ll keep me informed on a regular basis of developments with calls, texts, and emails. He has the perfect balance of keeping me informed without being intrusive. For my difficult questions, I found him to extremely knowledgeable about real estate issues in general. For the few questions I asked him that he was unable to answer, he would do things like contact an experienced contractor he knew who could address my question and bring this person with him the next time we met. When I had a complex legal question, he would give me his reasonable opinion and then also give me the name and number of an attorney whom he knew had experience in dealing with that type of legal issue. When we went into escrow, he and his assistant Taryn were excellent in keeping me informed of what and when I had to do something next. Best of all, Dan is just a really great guy. He has the perfect balance of being an honest person with a great sense of humor, and yet when it comes time to negotiate with the seller’s agent, he can be firm, decisive, and extremely effective. Because he is so knowledgeable about the real estate market in the Santa Barbara area in general, and on Hollister Ranch in particular (where we purchased our property), he was able to negotiate a fair price with the seller’s agent in a very effective manner. What I like best about Dan is that he really became personally invested in my unique situation and needs. He showed incredible empathy to a hardship that had occurred to my family (and which was motivating us to buy the property that we purchased), and he fought hard to find the right property for us that fit our needs, even though it wasn’t the most expensive property that would have earned him the highest fees. I’ve come to view Dan as a really good friend with whom I can always rely, and I look forward to working with him on future real estate projects.”
