About Chris Summers
Welcome and nice to meet you! I’m Southern California native, experienced entrepreneur, and Santa Barbara Realtor® with a long history in real estate, new construction and luxury renovation. I’m certified by the Green Resource Council, and enjoy helping clients build, buy, and sell real estate with sustainability in mind.
After an early and successful career in arts & entertainment, I returned to college and earned a degree in Finance, Real Estate and Law, later joining a start-up company that went public. I studied graduate business and marketing at the University of Notre Dame, and returned to California where an interest in construction and investing led me to become a licensed real estate agent and work on development projects including new construction and luxury renovation in Hope Ranch, the Riviera, and Montecito.
Great service speaks for itself, and that’s exactly what I will provide for you as your knowledgeable adviser, committed ally in negotiations, and your trusted partner in any transaction. We will listen carefully to your wants and needs, respond quickly and always, and prioritize open, honest, candid communication.
When you’re ready to engage on listing your home for sale, buying your next, updating your investment value, or ready to learn more about our extraordinary and unique Santa Barbara real estate market, we’ll be there for you every step of the way.
