Client Testimonials

Working with Brian was a wonderful experience, with a beautiful outcome. I highly recommend Brian and actually give him full credit for my successful purchase (ahead of many other interested buyers). It was evident during my home search that Brian also had a great rapport with so many other agents, which actually facilitated my purchase. Brian is very knowledgeable, yet so pleasant to work with. I felt very comfortable discussing my wish list for house and neighborhood and his knowledge helped with my decisions. His attentiveness to detail, including daily email updates on any price changes or new listings, makes the entire process trouble-free. You can actually relax, knowing that Brian has everything under control. - Ann Camou

Brian was great. We hadn't even been looking hard for a home and just came upon one that we liked. We called Brian and he came right over and we worked out an offer, got in touch with all of Brian's contacts(which were awesome). The deal closed in under 30 days and now we are in our new home. Couldn't have asked for a smoother or easier experience. I would highly recommend Brian to anyone looking for a home. - Sarah Martin

Brian was great to work with. He was very patient with us and our short-sale situation. When it was time to put offers on the houses and pick which were what we were looking for, he was very respectful of our opinions and made sure that the final call/decision came from us. Brian is a very comfortable person to work with and did a good job of keeping the stress out of the buying experience. I highly recommend using Brian to purchase your next property. His knowledge of the Santa Barbara County and Ventura County was extensive. He was able to find us the house of our dreams! - Jason Kline

Brian is a true professional in his industry. I was extremely impressed by how knowledgeable he was of the local residential market and our purchase contract. Brian was reliable, available any time we called, and a strong negotiator. Additionally, he is honest and has integrity. He didn't tell us what we wanted to hear or what was in his best interest: he always did what was in our best interest. Lastly, Brian is personable and fun. We truly enjoyed working with him. I highly recommend Brian and will certainly choose him again when the time comes. - Katrin Ericson

I could not have been more impressed with how Brian handled our purchase. He worked very well with the selling agent even when they disagreed on certain terms. It became very obvious early on that Brian had an excellent reputation among other agents within the community, as well. I have referred friends to Brian and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him again. - Judy Sanregret

Brian was the perfect agent for us, calm, honest, very responsive and knowledgeable. It was his quick action that found our home for us. He is patient. We looked at many homes over many months before finding the right one. We never felt any pressure from Brian to buy a property so he might receive a paycheck and move on to the next house. It was a pleasure to work with an intelligent, honest, and well educated person. He is honest and exact, and we never heard any "real estate speak" or hype, which is a good deal more than I can say about several other agents whom we encountered. My father worked for many years in real estate; I know a qualified and professional agent when I meet one. My wife and I are both professors, and we appreciated Brian's friendly but professional demeanor. We could recommend no one more highly. - Christopher Buckley

Madelyn and I came to Santa Barbara with very little sense of the community let alone any real estate knowledge. Brian spent months in a very patient review of dozens of homes in many neighborhoods. He helped us differentiate our options in the context of our lifestyle and financial bracket. He was aggressive on our behalf but reasonable to the seller. He pushed the deal on our behalf without "letting it get away". We have made substantial improvements to the house since purchasing it and have consulted with Brian continually on the sensibility of over-investing in our property. Brian is a pure professional with exceptional communication skills and unlimited energy. We looked at every single on the market during our search and never once did Brian hurry the process or lose focus. I would never use another realtor. - Gregg Foster

Brian is easy to work with, attentive, responsive and very knowledgeable about the local market. He helped us over the course of a year to land just the right house for our family. Prior to purchasing that home, we needed to rent a house. Though Brian could justifiably have referred us to a rental specialist, he took on the task himself, quickly and effortlessly finding us a perfect temporary residence. Because of his full-service style, wealth of knowledge about the market as well as good relationships with other agents, and his pleasant congeniality, we have returned to him as we search for a second home -- wouldn't dream of finding another agent. We highly recommend Brian Goldsworthy. - Mari Mitchel
