A bit about me.
I’ve lived in Santa Barbara for over 40 years and feel fortunate, every day, for being able to live here. I have over 15 years of experience in real estate and hold an extensive knowledge of the market, compelling negotiating skills, a keen knack for securing deals and I love what I do!
Prior to real estate, I had a successful career in Hollywood as a writer. I’ve worked for most of the major studios, and more than a few actors. I’ve had the good fortune of having Warner Brother’s produce one of my scripts and Simon & Schuster publish one of my novels.
As a freelance professional, my career was driven by reputation, referrals and my ability to build strong personal relationships; tools I’ve found to translate perfectly in working with both buyers and sellers in real estate.
If you are looking for someone who knows Santa Barbara extraordinarily well, who understands the value of integrity, confidentiality, service and strives to make the process enjoyable, too, I may be just the right agent for you. I look forward to meeting you.
"I am so happy to take a moment to say good things about our Realtor, David Wieger. My wife and he had been friends for years, although I really knew him only in passing. I was leery of the whole process, buying my first house in 42 years, and I anticipated being pushed, coerced and bullied into a decision. What I found in David Wieger was a man who listened intently to our specific wishes and concerns who moved quickly to offer us possibilities. My wife and I then made a total about-face, looking for something entirely different and David missed not one beat, sending us several options that reflected our new interests. We actually found a house in Santa Barbara and made an offer within a very short time. The whole process was remarkably smooth and, although there were a few kinks and delays, David kept us informed all the way and seemed to be able to expedite matters through his contacts and diplomacy. David’s depth of understanding of the entire process, his patience, wisdom, and willingness were huge factors in ameliorating our stress and anxiety of the house-buying process. I’m delighted to call him my friend and recommend him heartily! Thanks…" -Meredith Baxter/Nancy Locke
"It is with great pleasure that I have a chance to speak about our wonderful experience with David Wieger as our realtor. Let me first say that the two words that best describe David, are patience and determination. I would follow those two words with many others, including kindness, humor, knowledge, attention to detail and last but not least, excellent taste. David works very hard to understand what you are looking for as a home buyer, even when you might not be quite sure of yourself. He has a vast knowledge of the area, as well as contacts in all trades which is abundantly helpful when you are an out of town buyer such as myself. We worked with David for over two years. He held our hand as we sold our home in LA., helped us search for a rental while we continued our search in Santa Barbara and ultimately found our dream home. We could not be happier. I encourage anyone who wants an honest gentleman, with tons of experience and integrity to choose Mr. David Wieger as their Santa Barbara Realtor, you will not be disappointed. Please feel free to contact me personally for any other questions you may have." Best Regards, -Laurie Dalton, (proud homeowner for 5 months!)
"We have known David for over 5 years and used him to find our last two properties. He is a fantastic realtor – I highly recommend him. David is extremely diligent, he knows Santa Barbara very well, as well lots of the people in town (ie he has lots of connections), he is on your side and does what it takes to meet with whomever you need to make a purchase feel right, he is easy to get a hold of, and responds quickly to emails, and is great at negotiating prices. In addition, he is fun to hang out with and easy to speak directly with. I can’t say enough about working with David." -Brook & Jasper Eiler
"David Michael Wieger has a talent for joining dreamers with the perfect house and a gift for graciously guiding sellers through the process of reaching for the next dream. It was to my great joy and satisfaction that I worked with David as both buyer and seller. You’ll not find a more creative and hardworking agent with more heart and expertise in real estate." -Barbara Bain
"David knows his stuff! I’ve sold a past home and we bought our current property from David. He works diligently and gracefully when interacting with home sellers and buyers. David is very intuitive and is excellent at searching and finding the perfect property for his client." -Ginger Sledge
"It is with great pleasure and no hesitation that I strongly recommend David Wieger as a realtor. In 2003, my husband and I looked into buying a house and David assisted us. David listened carefully to our wish list and showed us a few properties. He knew the market very well. As a long time resident of Santa Barbara, David also knew all areas around town. As a result, he found us a house within one week. He then helped us in all steps of the buying process, until we moved in. David is very knowledgeable and very professional. He knows how to listen carefully and asks a lot of questions until he understands what you need. He makes himself available when you need him. And he is very agreeable. I still remember this book I found in my kitchen when we first moved in: “New Fix-It-Yourself Manual: How to Repair, Clean, and Maintain Anything and Everything In and Around Your Home”. What a thoughtful and humoristic present it was from David!" -Irène Revenko
"David helped us find what we were looking for and guided us through the closing process in an easy and speedy manner. He was on top of everything and persistent as needed." -E John Wells IV
"We were first-time home buyers and no question who our agent was going to be. We know David through activities and mutual acquaintances in the area. He has a good reputation that is well-deserved and built on a long history of good relationships. He was easy to work with, was flexible through the whole process, had great referrals (inspections, loan officers, etc.), and was patient with our many questions and full work-schedule." -Melch & Pinto
