I first met Chris when I was buying a new home. He was the listing agent so I had a chance to work firsthand with him from the lens of a buyer. My wife and I were so impressed with his professionalism and demeanor – from the moment we met him at the first open house all the way through to the close of escrow – that when it came time to find someone to represent us for the sale of our home, it was a no-brainer that we wanted Chris to represent us. I’ve sold several homes, and worked with some great professionals in the local real estate market, but I must say that Chris went above and beyond the call in duty in every respect. For example, when a zoning report showed a couple items that we had thought were totally permitted were actually incorrectly stated on the zoning report, Chris didn’t just say “here’s what you need to go fix with the zoning department” – rather, he set up the meeting for us with the zoning department, he help us prepare all the documents, and he attended the meeting with us and helped us get everything fixed. This is just one of many examples. The point is, he goes the extra mile in every thing he does. Even after the sale closed when most brokers cash their commission check and move on, Chris still offered post-close support with all the little details such as offering to facilitate that “one last trip to the recycling center and donation drop off”. I can’t say enough about Chris. He has a spectacular reputation in this town, and now I know why. I highly recommend you meet with Chris when looking to buy or sell your home in the Santa Barbara market. You won’t be disappointed!

When we first moved into Santa Barbara, Chris Agnoli was our neighbor and we got to know him and his family over the years. A few years ago, after we successfully split off a lot from our property, we asked Chris if he would handle its sale. He agreed and the result was a higher than list price offer. Chris made it seem very easy and took care of all of the details for us. This past year when it was time to sell our Alan Road home and move away, we again contracted with Chris who once again took care of many of the details and did a very professional job of finding a buyer who loved the house. During the time the house was on the market, he worked closely with us. Because of our pets we did not want people coming to view the property without knowing exactly when, and Chris was able to handle all of that. In addition, he met with prospective buyers and their own brokers at the property and walked them through, pointing out all of the special features including the smart home modifications we had made. The resulting sale was quick and efficient and Chris continued to follow up even after the close of escrow and our move out of state. He wanted to make sure the new owners’ questions were answered and we worked with him to achieve that goal. We strongly recommend Chris to anyone who wants their property sold with a minimum of hassle and without having to waste time on the details.

I chose Chris to sell 2 of my homes and purchased one. Chris knows the market and works patiently through all issues. He provides critical updates and always has great ideas and suggestions on how to proceed all the while gaining maximum value for his clients. Really the best realtor I’ve ever known. Chris is very honest and I’ve always valued his trusted advice every step of the way through sales and purchases.

Chris Agnoli is by far the best realtor I have ever known. He stood by us professionally for years while we made the right decision on buying a home. He never pressured us or tried to sway us in anyway. He has a long list of professional people available to help in the process. Some of whom we have worked with and all have been very professional and a positive experience. Everything from appraisers to painters and movers. He definitely knows the area. His knowledge of the homes and neighborhoods are impressive. Our experience with Chris in buying our home was organized, calm, efficient, professional and easy. We find Chris Agnoli to be an ethical, patient and considerate realtor with much experience.

Chris has a thorough and impressive background in real estate having owned his own companies in both San Diego and Santa Barbara. He is exceptionally personable, knowledgeable, available and is willing to go the extra mile to get the job done. I would both use Chris again as well as recommend him.

I was introduced to Chris Agnoli by one of my clients. I was interested in a lot that was listed by him in a very tight market….Santa Barbara. Needless to say there were quite a few other interested parties. Chris was very personable and professional, but most importantly, he came through for me and made it happen. He has my high recommendations.

Chris recently handles a real estate transaction for my family. We felt like he was central to the success of the transaction and without him, the deal may not have closed. Aside from his years of industry knowledge and experience, Chris has a very grounded, reassuring quality which was helpful to have during the process. We would definitely encourage anyone considering a real estate transaction to speak with Chris.

We know Chris for quite some time and we could not have found a better person to help us to sell our house and find a new one. He took care of everything and made the transition extremely easy. In our eyes he is just the best and we recommend him highly. He will be the agent for our next real estate buy, no doubt about it. He went out of his way to accomadate us. Thanks to Chris, we found our dream home. He worked very hard on making this possible and we can highly recommend him. We know, we will do business with him again. He is the best.

My wife and I have bought two homes in Santa Barbara from Chris. Many times communication is lacking with realtors and makes for a stressful experience, but communication is one of Chris’s strong points. He was always giving us immediate feedback from showings, talking to other realtors etc. Chris has also managed for 12 years two rental properties we have owned in Santa Barbara. Being a Santa Barbara native, he knows the area and market. I would recommend him highly.
