My experience over 35 years guides me in preparing homes for the market so they sell at the highest number the

Ask Anyone who knows Alyson Spann will tell you of her uniquely passionate approach to life. In fact, this dynamic individual’s personal credo just happens to be “get involved”. It’s an approach that has powered her achievements as a leading real estate professional in Goleta and the surrounding Santa Barbara area since 1985.
A long time resident of Santa Barbara, Alyson attended UCSB and fell in love with the area's beauty, its perfect climate and its small town charm. Her first job after graduating was with a small local real estate company and she soon decided that this was the career for her.
With her personal style of business, 35 years of industry experience and unique dedication to her clients’ needs, Alyson has built a stellar reputation for offering exceptional service.
“Having worked with about two dozen real estate agents since 1978, I am willing to put in writing my opinion that Alyson is the “best of the breed”! There are numerous examples I could give to illustrate and support my conclusion, but suffice it to say that I told Alyson in the middle of the listing period of the home we recently sold, that she had “gone above and beyond the call of duty” in handling many of the details of the sale. Alyson was always unflappable, cheerful and encouraging as we continued to look for the right buyer.” ~ John S. Ingalls, Seller, CEO
"Alyson helped us find our ideal home over several months. She was patient, understanding, and optimistic. She has great connections that helped us get our funding over the finish line quickly, and was instrumental in getting all of our inspections done in time. We were very happy with our first home buying experience! - Katherine Q., Santa Barbara -August 2019
"Alyson was a great help in locating and buying a property in the Santa Barbara area. She is super responsive across multiple time-zones, always on the ball in moving the transaction ahead, an excellent negotiator, and with her cheerful attitude and genuine interest in people, simply a real pleasure to work with. Would 100% recommend! " Jakub Z - Purchased in Santa Barbara 2019

"Michelle was very helpful every step of the way. Our family was looking to make a long-distance move and Michelle made the process painless and straight forward, without a hint of pressure. When we weren't able to make it to town she helped us by giving live video walk-throughs. She's not afraid to share her perspective and advice on all things relating to the process which was supremely helpful for us first-timers. We couldn't be happier with the result. Thank you, so very much!" – Stephen R., Santa Barbara. -November 2019
