MARK DANFORTH LOMAS Prior to entering real estate sales I created ads for a large advertising company in San Francisco and Marin County. My background includes professional photography, videography (real estate videos), and internet marketing. I'm tenacious when it comes to communicating. My pledge is excellent communications at every step in the process. My focus is on maximizing your results for a truly rewarding real estate experience.
I have over 30 years experience facilitating the acquisition and sales of fine homes. Together with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services ,Santa Barbara's leading residential brokerage firm, I can provide you with the best real estate services available. Berkshire Hathaway's local, national, and global reach is extraordinary. No one knows the Santa Barbara real estate market quite like Berkshire Hathaway's professionals do. We live here, we work here, and thrive here. In conjunction with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services I am able to provide my clients with an unparalleled view of the latest market conditions, and a comprehensive suite of services to ensure every possible success. I bring to this process extensive local knowledge regarding the various neighborhoods throughout southern Santa Barbara.
As a skilled advisor I am adept at merging the needs of both buyer and seller into effective agreements. By blending old school real estate strategies with the newest technologies I can give you an edge up on the competition, especially if you're thinking of selling your home here. Together we can create and customize a marketing plan for the sale of your property. If you're thinking of buying a home here in Santa Barbara one facet of my focus includes providing you with information on "off market" homes that are not formally listed on the MLS or online.
Santa Barbara offers a wide array of different architectural styles and I enjoy working with all of them. When working with sellers I take great pride in using my expertise, resources, and global connections to unite extraordinary places with extraordinary buyers who will cherishs them. After all there are few places more important than the one you call home.
"Excellent Service, Superior Results, Remarkable Real Estate"
ON A PERSONAL NOTE:
"I was born in Stamford, Connecticut, and grew up in Pound Ridge, New York. I am the youngest of four boys, and have a younger sister. In 1970 I played basketball for Fox Lane High School in Bedford, New York. We went all the way to the New York State Basketball Championships. At 6'4" I played guard, and was the team's top scorer and rebounder. I then attended Rollins College in Winter Park Florida, and Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri where I also played ball.
In 1974 I moved to Marin County in the San Francisco Bay Area where I spent two summers playing semi-professional basketball. At that time I worked at a very popular restaurant in Sausalito called the Trident where I worked with Robin Williams for three years. In 1983 I went on to work for a large advertising agency in San Francisco, Mega Media, as a copywriter, illustrator, and idea person.. In 1984 and 1985 I tried my hand at stand up comedy, and opened for a variety of notable San Francisco rock groups. In 1985 I decided to get my real estate license, and within 3 years I was the top producing agent at Merrill Lynch Realty. Throughout my real estate career in Marin County I always placed in the top 10 percent of real estate agents." In 2012 my partner, Kirsten Wolfe, and I moved from the town of Tiburon up in Marin County to Santa Barbara. We love it here!
