Shandra represented us in the sale of our Montecito home as well as the purchase of our current home in Santa Barbara. She helped us carefully prepare our home for sale, and coached us on obtaining the necessary inspections and making strategic upgrades prior to putting the house on the market. The result was a full-price offer at the top end of our target range within the first 24-hours of the home being listed. On the buy side, Shandra was able to negotiate some significant fixes to our new home which were paid for by the owner. By working with Shandra, we were also able to purchase our new home at a significant discount to the listing price. The result of these two transactions with Shandra has been a significantly improved lifestyle here in Santa Barbara — thank you Shandra!
Shandra was referred to us from a close personal friend who had used her recently to purchase a home in Montecito. We were extremely satisfied with her personalized services while purchasing a home. Shandra’s knowledge of the area was second to none. She quickly realized what our parameters were & which properties might work for us & as a result she didn’t waste our time showing us properties that we would never consider. We relied heavily on her 30 plus years of experience in the area.
Our list of requirements was very refined & specific & after a few months (due to very limited inventories of properties that we would consider) she found us the perfect house. She was extremely knowledgeable & helpful getting us through the buyer’s inspection process. We had very few issues that arose during the purchasing process but they were handled quickly & efficiently by Shandra. One of the things we specifically appreciated was that we were not “handed off” to an assistant as so many realtors are prone to do now once the purchase agreement is signed. We were extremely happy with the purchasing process because of dealing with Shandra
We have recommended her to anyone & everyone we have encountered that is considering the purchase of a property in the greater Santa Barbara area.

It is my pleasure to commend to your attention the exceptional quality of my professional relationship with Shandra Campbell.
Ms. Campbell represented my family’s interests in several real estate transactions over the course of the last few years. A number of those transactions were complicated and required a high degree of attention to detail as well as much time and effort on the part of Ms. Campbell. I have the highest regard for the manner in which she handled each and every transaction.
It has been my pleasure on numerous occasions to recommend Ms. Campbell’s services to friends and business acquaintances that were either buying or selling real property including people our Company has relocated to the Santa Barbara area. She has always done an excellent job of meeting their needs and I would not hesitate to recommend her in the future. She is a credit to Village Properties and you are indeed fortunate to count her as part of your team.

I have had all kinds of agents – from the top producers to mid-level agents come through my home. I have found you to be the most professional and talented of all of them. I was so impressed with your understated manner in supporting and adding to my presentation to your clients. It was an enormous help and a real learning experience. I realize this is not an easy thing to do and requires a keen sense of balance; of knowing what to say, when to say it and, most importantly, what not to say. And you also reminded me that selling real estate is a true art form when done correctly. You are a true talent.
We recently purchased a home on 720 Ladera Lane in Montecito. We were introduced to Shandra Campbell by my friend, Tony Leggio, and met her in September of this year. At that time, we were only learning about Montecito and not seriously planning to purchase for a year or so. We felt this would be a long process and had not even committed to Montecito when we first met Shandra. Even though I let her know that I was only in the early investigational stage and gave only 24 hours notice, she put together a portfolio of homes for Casey and I to see that was incredible. It was as if she had a week or two to prepare. It was organized and the homes were varied to help her determine what would best fit our needs. 720 Ladera was one of the homes that we saw on the first day.
It did not take Shandra long to determine our likes and dislikes. She understood quickly the value of my time and gave us a most organized and efficient showing of several homes the first day we met. Because of her love and passion for Montecito and her knowledge and competence of her job, we placed a bid on the Ladera home within 2 weeks. If I had been asked prior to meeting Shandra if there was any chance that I would put an offer on a home within 6 months of the first showing, I would have said absolutely not. Shandra is amazing.
Through the entire process of showings, of representing me in the buying process, in providing me names of professionals for inspections and repairs, and in guiding me through what otherwise could be a stressful process, Shandra was the most professional and kind person I could have associated with. She made the entire buying process stress free and enjoyable. Whenever I became nervous or concerned, she confidently assured me not to worry because she was in full control.
Even after I purchased the home and was hoping to lease it, she continued providing me help and guidance and was responsible for procuring a tenant for me. She did this for me out of kindness and was so helpful in choosing the right tenant. She has been there for me every step of the way.
I will absolutely use her again in any real estate transaction I do in the Santa Barbara/Montecito area. I will also refer her to any friends, patients, and family.
I can’t say enough about Shandra to do her justice for what she did for Casey and me. I value her expertize, her passion for Montecito, her honesty, and her friendship. She represented your company with honor and pride and you are the most fortunate to have her on your team.
Thank you for giving me this opportunity to express my thanks and gratitude for Shandra Campbell. She is one in a million.
