Santa Barbara real estate team breaks sales records
Santa Barbara’s leading residential real estate team, Riskin Partners, a luxury division of Village Properties Realtors and Christies International Real Estate, shattered MLS records this year, with over $335,000,000 in sales.
Partners Rebecca Riskin, Dina Landi and Sarah Kelly have claimed the #1 position for dollar volume sales in Santa Barbara for the past decade, and in 2014 the team was recognized by the Wall Street Journal and Real Trends as #8 in the country for sales volume by teams comprised of five agents or fewer.
However, their 2015 sales included an off-market transaction that closed for $27,500,000, the highest residential sale in Montecito since 2008. The estate, designed by Don Nulty AIA and Michael S. Smith ASID, offers an unrivaled location adjacent to the San Ysidro Ranch, superb privacy, and vast ocean views. Riskin Partners was the only agent involved in the transaction.
The team attributes their success to the power of teamwork and the cutting edge technology they employ. This enables them to provide exemplary customer service which is the mantra of the team. Partner Dina Landi said, “We carry a diverse listing portfolio—from quaint cottages and vacant parcels, to luxury estates, with our focus on properties of distinction. We strive to make each client feel as if they are our only client.”
With over 35 years of sales experience, partner Rebecca Riskin understands that housing markets fluctuate, there are great years and not so good years. Rebecca said, “Our top priority is our clients’ satisfaction. Their success is our success, and we aim to keep it that way!”
