"Bowen takes away all the stress of buying a home. Being out-of-state and seeking to buy a home in Santa Barbara means working with someone you can completely trust. From the moment we met Bowen, there was never a doubt; we knew we had found someone who would find us the perfect home. His knowledge of the properties and market in Santa Barbara is incredible. Bowen did great video tours of the homes remotely for us before we saw the ones we liked in person. Bowen is very responsive, provided excellent advice, and never rushed us into a decision. We would not hesitate to work with Bowen again for our future property needs."
"Bowen was our agent who held our hand through the process of buying our dream home in Carpinteria. He was incredibly patient, flexible and full of wisdom from beginning to end of our transaction. Between showing us dozens of homes, helping us draft up an offer and making sure everything was signed on time, he was a rock steady resource that I would recommend to anyone."
"Bowen has been so patient with us over the years. He really cared about our goals and what was best for us. He helped us understand the local Santa Barbara/Goleta market and which homes might be the best fit for our family, our preferences and our price range. He is a good listener, very knowledgable, extremely professional and lovely to work with! We highly recommend Bowen!"
"Bowen helped us purchase a condo in Santa Barbara with tricky logistics: a good portion of the search was conducted remotely as we live full-time in the Bay Area. Bowen is patient (we started our search over 6 months ago) and extremely knowledgeable of the Santa Barbara market. He executes effectively--he does what he says he's going to do, on time, as promised. He is also persistent--we ended up buying a condo that wasn't on the market, but Bowen made multiple inquiries that eventually resulted in our buying the condo unit in the location and plan we desired! I highly recommend Bowen if you're looking for a Santa Barbara real estate agent."
"I highly recommend anyone looking to purchase a home in the Santa Barbara area to work with Bowen! I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and appreciated his professional demeanor and quick response times, something that a lot of Santa Barbara professionals lack. Bowen is incredibly knowledgeable about the Santa Barbara market and helped my fiancee and I quickly find a home that matched our needs perfectly! I was even more impressed with his patience dealing with my fiancee and myself as we deliberated the purchase and grateful for his advice as well!"
"I am so grateful that my husband and I had Bowen to help guide us through the process of purchasing our first home. Bowen's ability to negotiate and write a competitive offer in a multiple offer situation made our dream of owning this home a reality. His knowledge and expertise made the complicated process much easier to navigate. He was extremely responsive and easy to reach on the phone which made our very fast escrow feel more manageable. I will be recommending Bowen to all of our friends and family in Santa Barbara area and will definitely use him for our future real estate transactions."
