A low pressure/high service approach to real estate sales is one of the many reasons why Bob Curtis of Village Properties is the Realtor® of choice for so many Santa Barbara residents.
Bob has consistently been recognized as one of Santa Barbara’s Top Producing Realtors® since 1986 and has garnered numerous awards for exceptional productivity and impeccable service. He is currently the #1 Agent in the Santa Barbara office of Village Properties. Bob has also gained the respect of the entire Santa Barbara real estate community which is evidenced by being named the 1996 Realtor® of the Year and as the 1998 President of the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors®. He was recently honored as an Honorary Member of Life for the Association. For 13-years he was elected by his peers to represent them on the Board of Directors of the California Association of Realtors® where he has served as the Chairman of the MLS/Computer and Business Technology Committee, the Realtor® Risk Management Committee, and the Communications Advisory Committee.
Bob relies on a broad-based marketing plan to sell homes quickly at expected prices. He utilizes effective advertising campaigns, but more importantly, he personally markets properties through networking with other agents throughout California. He has embraced technological changes as a dynamic tool for marketing properties and is considered to be one of the most technically proficient Realtors® in Santa Barbara. His listings sell for between 3.49% to 4.66% more than the average agent’s in one-third the time.
Education has been another aspect that has factored into Bob’s ongoing success. As a former teacher, he finds that by educating his clients on all facets of their transaction, the escrow process is eased. Educating clients is intricately tied to communication, and in this area, Bob soars. Not only does he keep the doors of communication open with his clients, but he is also a stickler for following up on all affiliated personnel; lenders, escrow officers, appraisers, title representatives, etc. to ensure that the sale proceeds smoothly and the escrow closes in a timely manner ‘with no surprises.’ His ability to explain the ins and outs of home loans and escrows has helped many families reduce the stress that is related to what, for many, is their biggest lifetime investment. Known locally as the “Realtors®’ Realtor®”, Bob is a popular instructor among licensees. Active in the community, Bob is a past Chairman of the Santa Barbara YMCA.
While Bob has demonstrated a true affinity for helping people with all of their real estate goals, it is also his enthusiasm for his career, which he launched in 1986, a positive attitude no matter what the circumstances, and his friendly sales manner that have helped him build a fine repeat and referral business.
