Exemplary negotiating skills, a trained creative eye for design and style, and nurturing her clients with what she refers to as “a concierge level of care during and beyond the transaction.” Those are the keys to Beverly Palmer’s success as a real estate professional.
Beverly’s love for real estate, and her road to becoming a popular, successful and effective agent, began over two decades ago when she purchased her first house while still in her twenties. Investing in California real estate, as well as building and selling spec homes in Arizona, fostered her desire to become a realtor and gave her valuable first-hand experience from the standpoint of both the buyer and seller.
Born and raised in the Los Angeles area, Beverly earned a Fine Arts degree from UC, Berkeley, lived in Southern California coastal communities as well as the Hollywood Hills, and ultimately found her true home in Santa Barbara – a considered choice after adopting an infant daughter in China.
“After adopting my daughter, Camille, I was searching for a nurturing place to raise her,” Beverly says, “Santa Barbara struck me immediately as a wonderful place to do that. Besides its fantastic climate, recreational and cultural activities, rich history, and excellent educational institutions and opportunities, it offers amenities for a luxury lifestyle as well as luxury amenities for a simpler lifestyle. In other words, Santa Barbara has something for everyone.”
Although Beverly’s expertise allows her to handle virtually any transaction effectively – from a client’s first-time starter home, to a move-up in the residential market, and on through the real estate spectrum to a significant estate – she carries with her a reputation for providing a consistently impressive level of professionalism, integrity and superlative service. Whatever the size or mone“tary value of the property, the clients are creating a home,” she emphasizes, “It’s their own special spot on earth.”
The passion Beverly has for doing the finest job possible for her clients carries into her passion for adoption and the plight of the world’s orphans; especially the thousands of young girls in China. She participates in activities of the worldwide Half the Sky Foundation, a group concerned with the developmental and educational well-being of Chinese orphans. In addition, she maintains close ties with the international and domestic adoption communities in Santa Barbara and worldwide.
When not immersed in the world of real estate or volunteer work, Beverly maintains an active lifestyle that includes hiking, yoga, swimming and spending time at the beach – often with her young Golden retriever, Hank, as well as daughter Camille. A devoted mom, she’s also involved with Camille’s school and many activities, including tennis, golf and water polo. Spending time at home is also important for Beverly and her daughter, who feel blessed to live in a Santa Barbara neighborhood possessing an extraordinary community heartbeat. It’s a special spot where family and community can be nurtured among wonderful neighbors.
Whatever Beverly does, both professionally and in her personal life, she does with a conscience. It’s a sensitivity and set of principles that have allowed her to provide that “concierge level” of service to her clients. Through her relationships with those clients and her colleagues she has secured her place among Santa Barbara’s most respected real estate professionals.
