We have worked with Luke 6 times in the last 8 years – to rent, sell twice, and buy three times. He’s a total pro - expert in Montecito properties and a pleasure to work with because he works hard, communicates effectively, and thinks creatively about every facet of buying and selling a home.
— Chris and Amy Giles
On the scale of 1 to 10, Luke scores a perfect 11. He has helped us with two purchases in Montecito over the last four years; in both transactions, he was gracious, patient, and incredibly attentive to our specific needs. He came highly recommended to us by our friends and neighbors and we remain grateful for the introduction. A dedicated professional and strong negotiator, Luke’s an invaluable resource to any buyer who’s new to the community.

I never thought I would say that buying and selling a house would be enjoyable, but working with Luke was a true pleasure! Luke is a straightforward communicator, has amazing knowledge of the Montecito market, and was responsive and attentive to details. Not only did Luke represent us when we downsized after becoming empty nesters, helping us find our dream house that we thought didn’t exist, but then he turned right around and sold our house during the challenging few months after local natural disasters. Both transactions went seamlessly. We can’t recommend him more strongly.

If there’s only one thing I needed to know about buying & selling homes in this area is I wished I had met Luke sooner. I’m very thankful I had him help me this time around. A bona fide professional in every aspect including insights only an experienced and extremely hard working person could have provided. Luke protected my interests and gave me a piece of mind during an unpredictable, last minute change in lenders, continually provided sound advice and was available to assist in every minute detail both insuring a smooth transaction and everything afterwards.

Luke represented us as both a buyer and a seller on two recent transactions. We have nothing but praise for Luke’s professionalism, knowledge of the market, honesty, and willingness to go the extra mile. He brought many people through our home and did not give up until he found the perfect buyer. His recommendations for getting our house ready to show were spot on, and his follow up and communication with us and prospective buyers was impeccable. As for finding us a house to buy, Luke was patient and truly understood what we were looking for, never wasting our time to show us a house that wasn’t the right fit. He is a pleasure to work with, and we highly recommend him.

Luke Ebbin has represented me as the seller and buyer on 3 separate transactions. I’ve bought and sold over 20 properties and have never used an agent more than once, with the exception of Luke. He is by far the most prompt, professional and honest agent I have worked with. Every transaction goes without the usual stress knowing Luke can handle the detail and nuance for any circumstance. In a competitive marketplace like Santa Barbara these qualities are what will make a successful transaction no matter whether you are buying or selling.
— Wendy Weitzman
We have been coming to Montecito for 25 years and thought we knew the area. But Luke introduced us to cool places we never thought to look. Our transaction wasn’t that large but was complicated and took a long time. Luke gave us great advice on structuring the offer and made sure that our interests were protected all the way through to the close. His professionalism and sense of humor never disappointed. We will definitely use Luke again and recommend him to anyone looking in the Santa Barbara area.
— Peter and Molly Harrigan

"Full of market knowledge and transaction experience, Luke also brought commitment and great instincts to the entire process of selling our home. He produced top notch marketing materials for us and communicated with us seamlessly throughout. He got it done and was a real pleasure to work with."

From the moment we started working with Luke, it was clear to us that he cared deeply about helping our family find our perfect home. The process began with him listening carefully to our needs and asking probing questions which helped us understand what we wanted even more. He always told it to us straight. In doing so, he helped us narrow our search to those properties which would truly meet our needs. He was patient and cool headed both during the searching phase and in trying to secure the best possible deal for our family. We give him our absolutely highest recommendation- you will not be disappointed!
— Anthony and Lindsay Ranii
Luke Ebbin was referred to us a couple of years ago by a much respected acquaintance. At our initial meeting we reviewed what we searching for and warned him we were “picky” clients – with a smile he assured us he had never lost a client. One of the best compliments we can offer regarding Luke is that he listens thoroughly. After a lengthy search we found what we were looking for and Luke could not have been more helpful, patient, supportive and professional through the process. Anyone in need of real estate guidance, rest assured he is the best.
— Ken and Janis Blaise
My husband and I found Luke Ebbin to be a truly excellent real estate agent. Our family lived in Los Angeles but wanted to buy a home in Montecito. Luke looked for us, tirelessly, for almost 4 years until he came upon our dream home. He also helped in educating us in what the right area would be, the correct price and even helped us get into the best preschool for our daughter. Luke went well beyond what a normal agent would do in helping us start our life in a new community. We will always be grateful and would highly recommend Luke to anyone needing to buy or sell a home!
— Dana Atwood
Luke provided us with 5 star service in all aspects of finding our perfect Santa Barbara property. He was able to negotiate a complex transaction while we were out of the country and even found us temporary housing when we arrived. We would highly recommend Luke for any sale or purchase of real estate in the Santa Barbara area. He has the knowledge, integrity, and warmth that will make your experience a fulfilling one.
— Richard and Donna Haro
I can’t recommend Luke highly enough. He is the consummate real estate professional and made our property acquisition in Montecito seamless; from identifying the perfect property through negotiating the offers all the way through closing, Luke was there 100%
— Phil Cassens
We have done three transactions with Luke. He is an extremely well informed, thorough agent- both residential and commercial. Luke helped guide us through a difficult deal with ease. He is a great listener, great communicator and always put our interests first. We would highly recommend Luke for any and all your real estate needs.
