"It takes two flints to start a fire"


For Amy and Kristin, this truth has consistently borne out since joining forces in 2019. Their finely tuned market knowledge and leading-edge marketing skills take the science and art of buying and selling to the next level. Drawing from a common foundation in ethics/risk management and heavy emphasis on client satisfaction, Kristin and Amy effortlessly combine their unique strengths and strategies to help guide their clients toward results they love for the long haul. 

After studying International Relations at UC Davis (Amy), and Business Administration and Spanish at the University of Oregon (Kristin), pragmatic experience across a spectrum of interpersonal and business specialties helped prepare them to answer their true calling in real estate. First licensed in 2006 (Amy) and 2016 (Kristin), they have helped many happy clients exceed their home goals in the Santa Barbara area. As full-time professional agents and longtime locals, Amy and Kristin maintain a vibrant network of helpful contacts within the communities they serve: Carpinteria, Montecito, Summerland, Hope Ranch, Santa Barbara and Goleta— where they have long resided.

The onset of the pandemic in 2020 tested Amy and Kristin's partnership and their own individual skills on many levels, and they rose to the occasion. Leading with innovation and resourcefulness, they found ways to market homes safely and effectively for their sellers, as well as grapple with a historic shortage of housing inventory for their buyers. Carrying lessons learned from that time forward, they continue to employ proven methods to proactively and creatively overcome obstacles and seize opportunities under any market conditions. Kristin and Amy's ability to face challenges head on—and rack up a stellar track record in the process—speaks to their problem solving capacity and a truly relentless dedication to their clients. 

Whether helping their sellers get a home ready for the market, giving their buyers a competitive edge, or negotiating an amazing deal, Amy and Kristin's top priority is to ensure a successful, smooth process. Their shared, determined vision rests firmly on their clients' satisfied smiles on closing day, and making the journey there an enjoyable one.
