Testimonials

“There are over 800 professional real estate people in this market, but the only one I would consider is Chris Casebeer. I first learned of this UCSB graduate years ago when, as an employee of Santa Barbara Bank & Trust, I was informed that when our Trust and Investments Division had real estate to sell, Casebeer was their first choice to com-plete the sales transactions. I concluded that if he is favored by the bank, that was all the recommendation I needed.”

“I have been involved with Chris as my broker in four transactions over the past five years. I can say without hesitation that he is a person of extremely high integrity, with a very strong desire to please. Compared with other brokers I have used in the past, I'm especially impressed with Chris's reputation. All one needs to do is walk down a street in Santa Barbara with him to discover that he is well known and very well liked in that community. I've also found Chris to be quite creative when it comes to solving the sticky problems which always seem to come with any real estate transaction these days.”

“Here is what Chris did for us . . . showed us everything in our price range . . . talked us out of buying a house that was less than we really wanted but for which we were ready to settle . . . found the house of our dreams BEFORE IT WENT ON THE MARKET . . . negotiated its purchase at a fair price and good terms . . . ensured that proper house and property inspections were conducted . . . introduced us to a good lender . . . resolved numerous escrow issues, and there were a lot of them . . . closed escrow on time . . . brought a bottle of champagne and took us to dinner . . . stayed in touch after the sale.”

 “We initially interviewed two Realtors from two of the large franchises in town. Then we interviewed Chris Casebeer . . . Not long into the interview, we knew Casebeer was the one. His office exudes the style of Santa Barbara, a far cry from the sterile, massive offices at the franchises. More importantly, Casebeer made us feel that he would be working for us, the buyer. That he relishes the opportunity to spend time with and educate us as first time buyers. That he was committed to us and our search for the home that matched our vision. His spirit is apparent in all that he does, as is his passion and expertise in real estate. Knowing we were in good hands, we began our search.”

“As a single woman making a big change in her life, I felt very comfortable knowing that you and your knowledge of the real estate market would help make this transition possible. The many reassuring and informative phone calls back and forth between Chicago and Santa Barbara during the negotiating period were professional and very supportive, and kept me calm during a normally stressful time. Your easy and sensitive manner made me feel confident that everything would fall into place - and it did! An additional bonus is your knowledge of this town and the people in it. If I have a question about anything from hiking trails to professional services, you always have well informed suggestions.”

“Chris, Thanks for the concern and follow-up. I am really at a loss for words to express our awe and appreciation for the volume and quality of service that you continue to provide. In the past two years we have experienced at least six purchases or sales of real properties. No other broker or agent (including family) has even come close to the caring or the serving in our best interests on either side of a real estate transaction. You more than earn your commission. You can be assured that this current transaction will not be our final one together. Thanks again.”
-Dale & Madeleine Godfrey

"Dear Chris, this is to thank you for the wonderful service you provided me in helping me find the "perfect" home here in Santa Barbara... I first came to Santa Barbara in the 80's and you were my realtor then...You helped me buy and sell 2 homes while I was here. When I decided to return to Santa Barbara... there was never any question that you would be the one I would call to help me. All through the years, since I first met you, we have been in contact. You have always been available for advice and information about the real estate market here in Santa Barbara. I admire your professional manner and friendly and caring attitude. I have always felt like I was in "safe hands" when working with you. You spent a lot of time with me determining my needs and helping to guide me. You were patient with me and listened to what I was saying and helped me determine what I was that I really needed. When it came time to make the final decision, you helped me clarify what it was that I was able and willing to do and then "do" it. Never did I feel that you were putting your own need ahead of mine and you were always available to listen to my thoughts and concerns. I will always be your loyal friend and client... This adds up to my vote for the best realtor in Santa Barbara. Sincerely,”
