Connecting with a client can be at the speed of E-mail but there is nothing more important than that "take your time" personal service David and Marlene offer their clients. Listening and understanding the needs of each client and providing them with the knowledge to make a good decision is how you know they are "on-line" with your needs.
Expertise, Integrity, Commitment and the Desire to do the job well: These aren't just words; they are an attitude that exemplifies their standards. They believe success in your profession is determined not only by your longevity in the business but by extensive knowledge of real estate and the marketplace. With a combined 50+ years of real estate experience David and Marlene have been given many accolades by the companies for whom they have worked and their fellow agents. In 1994 David was named Realtor Associate of the Year. Marlene has held both broker-agent and management positions at several large real estate concerns in the Santa Ynez Valley. Their professionalism among their peers and many satisfied clients has rewarded them with referral and repeat business which is the best true measure of how they "take care of business."
David and Marlene fell in love with the Santa Ynez Valley in the mid 70's and worked together to achieve their goal of moving here. They were convinced it was the best place to live and raise their children in a beautiful and caring atmosphere where "help your neighbor" is a way of life. They learned the valley by riding their children around on the back of their bikes before they were big enough to cycle alone. It gave them a tremendous insight into the out of the way places and a “grass roots” education on the valley environment and their neighbors. They continue that communication today by sending out a bi-monthly letter that includes information about real estate offerings in the Valley, schools, basically what’s going on here. They say, “It’s the things you learn after you have lived here. It helps people get a feel for what we’re about and what life is the Valley is like. The biggest problem is getting them to give it up after they’ve purchased. Some of their clients have been on the list for years.”
