HGTV House Hunters

We had the incredible opportunity from HGTV to film for their first episode in Santa Barbara. We were selected to be the agents on one of their House Hunters shows. House Hunters takes viewers on the home buying journey through a buyers eyes. The buyer clients are toured through three different properties and, in the end, they choose one to purchase. This was such a fun and different experience for us – completely out of our comfort zone, and such a learning experience!

Howard Gates Award Recipients

The Howard Gates Award is presented every year to the agent who handled the most difficult transaction of the year, which would not have closed without the skill and expertise of the agent involved.

“The Howard Gates Award is presented to Dianne and Brianna Johnson in recognition of completing a difficult and complex transaction requiring extraordinary endurance, tenacity, diligence, patience and skills which has earned them the honor of their peers.”

We don’t want to be known for difficult transactions. But, we would like to be known for our tenacity and representing our clients best interest, advocating for them every step of the way.

Custom Marketing

We design all of our own ads and marketing materials and fully customize them to the look and feel of your home. We are constantly thinking of new, innovative ways to market the properties we represent, going above and beyond the average agent’s marketing investments. As a graduate of Cal Poly SLO’s Graphic Communications department, Brianna is well versed in the latest design and marketing trends to make your home shine above the rest.

Rookie of the Year

Back when she began her real estate career in 1987, Dianne was named “Rookie of the Year” by Merrill Lynch Realty. Yep – she’s really good at her job.

Toy Aussie

Yes, we have a toy Australian Shepherd and we love him dearly. He is our first “little” dog weighing in at 14lbs and is so portable it’s incredible. And, did we mention, he’s adorable? We frequently exploit his good looks on our Instagram account.
