Santa Barbara

Often referred to as the “American Riviera” or the “Jewel of California’s Central Coast”.

Welcome to Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara is often referred to as the “American Riviera” or the “Jewel of California’s Central Coast”. It stands out as one of the most picturesque oceanfront towns in the United States and enjoys the geography and similar climate of the French and Italian Rivieras with the Santa Ynez Mountains rising dramatically behind the city.

In addition to being a popular tourist and resort destination, the city economy includes a large service sector, education, technology, health care, finance, agriculture, manufacturing, and local government with a population of approximately 90,000.

Our symphony orchestra, ballet, theater groups, galleries, museums, and a host of higher educational institutions demonstrate the town’s cultural richness. Many recreational activities include golf, tennis, hiking, biking, sailing, swimming, and surfing just to name a few.
 
Whether your Santa Barbara real estate journey is just beginning, or you are established in one of the many wonderful neighborhoods and communities in and around the “American Riviera” such as Montecito or Hope Ranch, the experience and knowledge Gregg Leach has to offer to his clients is bar none.

Gregg takes great pride in providing buyers and sellers alike with the kind of unparalleled personal service that brings them back and often transforms the relationship from “trusted Realtor” to “trusted Realtor and friend”.
