Santa Barbara Real Estate

Harry Kolb has been selling estate properties in Montecito, Santa Barbara and Hope Ranch for over 30 years. He has sold more estate properties in the area than any other agent. In fact, he's sold more estate homes than the entire sales staffs of many competing brokerage firms. Harry has also distinguished himself by selling the most expensive estate homes sold in the area on a number of occasions.

Harry's superior performance, effective marketing and extensive local knowledge have established him as an authority in the Santa Barbara estate market.

In a community where so many clients are notable personalities or business and government leaders, confidentiality is an important issue. Harry knows that one of the most important reasons his clients have chosen to work with him is that he has practiced strict confidentiality when it comes to the private investments of his clients. Any lesser degree of performance would be self-defeating.

Even the most obscure buyer or seller should be aware that there are several ways their private real estate business can remain private and not readily available to prying eyes. Experience has shown Harry how to help his clients retain their confidentiality.

Harry's entire business career has been devoted to marketing. Upon receiving a BA in Marketing from the University of Missouri, Columbia, Harry became a marketing consultant with Dun & Bradstreet, Inc. While consulting to firms like Gates Lear Jet, Johns Manville and Sherwin Williams, Harry was hired by one of his clients and became Vice President of CleveRock Energy Corporation in Denver, Colorado, where he was responsible for marketing oil and gas exploration investments to corporate clients looking for their own supply of natural resources. Having spent 10 years in Denver and Vail, Harry couldn't wait to get back to Montecito where he had spent such wonderful summers as a youth in the early 1960s. Once here, friends encouraged him to apply his marketing skills to the sale of this community's world-class collection of estate properties.

Harry's long-time interest in architecture and talents in marketing to a sophisticated clientele are especially well suited to his work as an estate agent.
