Santa Barbara’s leading residential real estate team, Riskin Partners, a luxury division of Village Properties Realtors, the area’s exclusive Christies International Real Estate affiliate, has broken an all-time record, closing over $146 million in sales in the first quarter of 2015. Partners Rebecca Riskin, Dina Landi and Sarah Kelly, earned the #1 position in the Santa Barbara Multiple Listing Service (MLS) for dollar volume sales in 2014, and have closed in excess of $284 million over the last twelve months. Riskin Partners has claimed the #1 position for dollar volume sales in Montecito 9 out of the last 10 years, and was recognized by the Wall Street Journal in 2012 as the #11 team in the country.
Riskin Partners’ sales volume is a staggering 206% greater than the #2 agent in the Santa Barbara MLS. Among the team’s 2015 sales was an exceptional Padaro Lane beach house, which closed for $19 million, the year’s highest sale to date. Riskin Partners represented the sellers in every sale over $10 million this year. Three of those properties received multiple offers.
What is the team’s strategy for the remainder of 2015?
According to Sarah Kelly, “In order to continue to provide impeccable service and unrivaled representation for our clients, we’ve expanded our team to include seven full-time professionals.”
Rebecca Riskin adds, “Meeting our client’s needs is our first priority. We are proud of our success, but ultimately only feel successful when our clients are happy.”
