Intensive negotiation training and experience, tenacity and innate talent allow Daniela Johnson to surpass her peers. She obtains the best possible price for her clients, consistently and reliably, whether those clients are buyers or sellers.
Purchasing her first home when she was just twenty-four, Daniela soon found herself scouting homes for friends as well. Teaming that eye for the appropriate property with her solid background in sales, Daniela dedicated herself to a career in real estate. "I was already commission-based, dealing with exceptional products for discerning customers and I had a very good eye for real estate," Daniela states with confidence.
Multi-cultural exposure throughout her life has contributed greatly to Daniela's communication and negotiation skills. Growing up the daughter of European stage and screen actor Norbert Schiller allowed her to travel the world, while her sales and marketing experience with a high-end consumer products corporation put her in contact with respected companies and their discriminating representatives across the United States.
Daniela contributes a hometown sensitivity and database of local information to any transaction. A native Santa Barbaran, she owns her own home in Montecito and has been an active member of her East Mountain Drive community for twenty years. She is a compendium of knowledge about the region's history, neighborhoods, public services and business community.
Frequently, Daniela's initial statement to a client is, "Tell me about your dream home and I'll find it for you." She emphasizes, "That's especially important when I'm working with couples because they each have their own history, wants and needs. I'm the mediator in bringing them together in their objectives and the catalyst in helping them arrive at their goal."
An energetic multi-tasker and mom to two grown boys, Daniela is an avid hiker and beachgoer who never tires of immersing herself in the Santa Barbara lifestyle so important to her clients as well.
