Kirk grew up playing baseball and surfing in South Florida. After earning an Economics degree in Central Florida, he visited Santa Barbara. It was love at first sight. In 1987 Kirk made Santa Barbara his new home.
Kirk knows first-hand why people want to stay in Santa Barbara and the challenge of purchasing real estate in the area. Kirk married a local Santa Barbara beauty, and together they have three wonderful children, all born in the same Santa Barbara "home." For many years the Hodson family has called the Mesa area of Santa Barbara their home.
Prior to his real estate career, Kirk spent over twenty-five years in the Action Sports Industry (Surfing, Skateboarding, Snowboarding), servicing clients' needs, and putting mutually beneficial deals together. Today, Kirk is a favored Santa Barbara Realtor who cherishes his adopted home. Having lived, purchased, and sold real estate throughout Carpinteria, Montecito, Summerland, Santa Barbara, Hope Ranch and Goleta, Kirk is familiar with local neighborhoods and schools throughout the South County and has intimate knowledge of local matters.
Kirk is relational by nature, conscientious of others, highly detailed in his work and life, and excellent at follow-through. A born educator, Kirk’s honesty, tenacity, and research drive, lead him toward an educational business approach, allowing his clients to find the help they need to make wise decisions.
Whether you’re considering buying, selling, or trading, Kirk would love to spend some time getting to know your needs. Give him a call.
