About Me


For over 25 years, Holly has lead the way in the Santa Barbara market for homes, condos and multimillion dollar estates, not just by excelling in sales, but listening to hearts.

Holly began her real estate career with Santana Properties, a Montecito boutique firm that was purchased by Coldwell Banker. She now sits under the Coldwell Banker umbrella in her same Santana seat, an office space with Dutch doors and ten agents. She has been able to maintain the small business feel while getting the support of a noted firm with tentacles worldwide.

Whether representing a buyer or selling a home, this is a journey that transcends bricks and mortar and activates our deepest hopes, aspirations, dreams and desires. Holly works closely, tirelessly and collaboratively to not just find her clients a house, but rather to find The Home.

A real estate matchmaker, Holly combines business acumen and intuition to market and stage a property in just the right way to attract just the right buyer at just the right time. Holly has a roster of Buyers and Sellers she’s not only worked with for years, but calls friends.

Holly is an award winning real estate agent who cares about her community. She has served as President of the Santa Barbara Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Board of Directors and is presently on their Honorary Board. She, also served as the President of the Cancer Foundation and Hospice of Santa Barbara Auxiliary.

Holly and her husband have lived and loved life together in Santa Barbara for more than 40 years.
