Emily Kellenberger | Montecito Santa Barbara Real Estate

Thank You Santa Barbara!

For voting me ‘the’ finalist in the Santa Barbara Independent Reader’s Poll for Best Real Estate Agent!


Alan and Patty Murray

We initially met Emily through a vacation rental several years ago.  When the opportunity came to move to Santa Barbara, Emily’s was the first name on our list.
From the start, we were so impressed with the communication and dedication Emily and her team provided to us, all of this before even arriving in Santa Barbara. From sending pictures and videos to us across the country, to viewing houses on our behalf prior to our arrival, we had the confidence that Emily not only understood our wants. desires, and needs in a home, but provided us with the whole package regarding schools, financial and other resources, community, etc.
When it came down to negotiations, Emily was always ahead of the game. She anticipated our needs and requests, screen-shot-2017-01-02-at-10-44-05-amsometimes even before we knew what we wanted!  Her knowledge and professionalism came to the forefront, and we felt like we had the upper-hand in the buying process.
Without a doubt, Emily is one of the most dedicated, experienced, and thoughtful agents we have worked with.  It was a pleasure getting to know Emily and her team, and when the time comes that we may be ready to dive in to the housing market again, Emily will be our first call!

Emily has assisted me with two sales in Santa Barbara, both of which were smooth and successful (most importantly).  She’s highly knowledgeable of the geographic region, key influential players in the community, and specific SB market and its trends. I will continue to use her services for all future transactions in the SB area. Her pleasant and positive attitude makes working with her seem more like communicating with a friend than a realtor, speaking from experience. Its no wonder she has been met with such success. I would highly recommend Emily to anyone interested in buying or selling property in the SB County!”


Dan Knapp and Cally Sprague

“Emily raises the bar for realtor experiences.  She worked hard consistently to help us sell our home and I feel like she really earned her money.  We live out of state and felt minimally involved in the sales process, yet had complete confidence in Emily to competently take us through escrow and secure top dollar for our home.  She’s fantastic at what she does and is also a joy to deal with.”


Janet Mullen

“Emily is an incredible agent. She is very professional, thorough and knowledgeable.  She can make a complicated transaction seem so simple.  When Emily listed my house I was prepared for the transaction to take some time.  She was right on pricing my home and it sold immediately.  Emily kept in constant contact with me and explained every aspect of the transaction.  I would highly recommend Emily and her team in the future.”

Emily Kellenberger is the best – no one in town will work harder for you or get you better results!  Emily is eminently capable – she handles big deals and small, commercial and residential - her wealth of experience in those varied settings makes her an incredible resource for any issue that comes up with your sale. We found her expertise to be particularly valuable as out-of-town buyers. We had no contacts in the area and any problem that came up, Emily not only had a person to handle it, but the best person. Financing? Emily’s got you covered. Zoning? Emily’s got you covered. Inspections? Emily’s got you covered. From handymen to architects, Emily has continued to be our go-to resource and we have been incredibly happy with all of the other professionals to which she has referred us. Another particularly valuable reason to work with Emily is that she knows everyone and every deal in town – she always had the back story, which helped us feel more confident in our decision-making. She is organized, articulate, cheerful, knowledgeable – everything that a buyer, seller, or any agent working on the other side of a deal could want. No matter how many matters she’s handling, she always makes you feel as if you’re her first priority.  Her assistant Michelle is also a pleasure to work with, and equally capable. 


Jane Dow

Emily has gone above and beyond on this whole house purchasing experience!  She provided great guidance, from assessing the potential of the house to foreseeing the work that needed to be done to it, then calculating the ROI if we did the work.  She helped us contact professionals to come in and give us estimates and do reports.  She came up with great comps all across the price range and she sent us all the required documents in a timely manner. Emily is professional, courteous, patient and incredibly knowledgeable.  I will definitely be going to her again for any real estate needs I have in the future.”

“Emily and her team were a complete pleasure to work with! They kept us in the loop throughout the whole process and guided us every step of the way. They were more than willing to work with our busy schedules and showed up day or night to view properties with us! Emily and Michelle have both been so helpful even after the close of escrow. We couldn’t have asked for a better, more knowledgeable realtor!”


Conor and Emmy Nealon

“Emily is an exceptional realtor who is well organized, responsive and passionate about helping her clients. She has a vast local network and keen sense of market. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.”


Valley Improvement Company

“We were provided excellent guidance through the entire process. Emily and Michelle were detailed and proactive throughout the transaction leaving no opportunity for an issue to occur. We appreciate their professional courtesy and friendly demeanor. They were very accommodating to the buyers needs.”

“If you are in search of a realtor in the Santa Barbara area, look no further than Emily Kellenberger! She is quite simply put, the best!

Being out of town buyers, we needed someone who was attentive and responsive to our needs; someone who can basically be our eyes and ears to keep us informed. Emily not only met every criteria we were hoping for in a realtor, but exceeded all expectations. She is highly competent, knowledgeable, trustworthy, attentive, communicative, helpful, professional yet personable (the list can go on and on), and truly cares about what your needs and desires are. We also worked closely with Emily’s assistant, Michelle, throughout the process and she was equally amazing! We never felt rushed to make any decisions we were uncomfortable with and when we were uncertain about the properties we were contemplating buying, they were patient and understanding.

We can’t say enough about how much we loved working with Emily and Michelle. They truly have a special way of making you feel like you are the most important client they have, regardless of your price point. Overall, we felt well supported and guided throughout our first home buying process in Santa Barbara and couldn’t be happier!”

“Working with Emily was an absolute pleasure. She is completely professional, she stays on top of all aspects of the transaction and keeps things moving along.  This was by far the easiest home escrow we have been involved in. Emily was always available to us and goes above and beyond to make things happen, and to resolve any questions or issues.  We plan on working with Emily again in the future and will refer her as well. She is a superstar!”

“This was my first experience buying a home with my husband, but my third time working with a realtor; for someone indecisive like me and moving from out of the area, Emily Kellenberger was the key to our success in purchasing not just a house but a forever home! We were moving from San Francisco to Santa Barbara in search of a more laid back lifestyle to raise our now eight (8) month old son; my husband attended UCSB, but I have never lived in Santa Barbara, so the town and home buying experience were both new to me. Emily and her team did a superior job accommodating us out-of-towners during the home search and purchasing experience. They diligently made lists and showed us multiple types of houses when I was pregnant, and then again when we just had the baby; we traveled down south with baby in tow and looked at places, which was no small feat. After several trips to SB to look at properties, we found the closest thing to a perfect house – with great value, tons of potential and also an awesome place to move into right away. We are so excited about our new home! Emily worked late hours assisting us with the paperwork and providing guidance along the way to help ensure that we were fully satisfied and knowledgeable about our purchase and the home buying process, as well as helping us obtain an awesome new asset AND home. She was also patient with us with our unique situation with the sale of our commercial property. Although we plan to stay in this home a long time, we look forward to working with (and remaining friends with) Emily and her team as well as Village Properties for our next real estate purchase!”

Annie Wright 2“Dearest Em, I am writing to thank you for being the fabulous real estate agent we think you are.  You are great with numbers, but you were meant to be out there where the people are, helping us find the perfect home that fits our family’s needs.  Your meticulousness and care in every step of the way made our part easy and fun.  With Tim being the VP of marketing for his firm, he told me how impressed he is with your knowledge of Santa Barbara’s real estate, as well as other areas, and your ability to ‘read’ the market and its trends.  Real Estate can be a tricky business, but you have a strong hand on the pulse of this market.  Tim trusted you and it made him feel at ease.  Let me say it again, he was impressed with your sales skills.  Thank you for being readily available.  You made the contacts I requested quickly.  Since we are friends, it made ‘going shopping’ for a house fun!  I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with you looking for the perfect house.  You were patient, fun, and you took an interest in our family and our needs, and you encouraged me not to settle for less.  I loved how you kept a log and were able to refer to exact dates and conversations you had with us and others.  You represented us with confidence and genuine friendliness.  When we did found our home, you worked well with the other agent to pull the deal together.  Tim and I just can’t say enough positive thoughts about our dear Emily.  From being a brilliant, creative, fearless painter to an outstanding, fearless real estate agent, you will no doubt continue to shine in your career for years to come!  You work with and enjoy all ages and have varied interests, which makes you an interesting person to work with.  I hope this gives some insight into how happy we were to work with you.  We’d do it again, but have no desire to move from this lovely home anytime soon.”


Seller, 200 Lambert Road, Polo Fields

“I congratulate you on the fine representation that you accomplished for your client and your honest and helpful assistance throughout the entire process.  You will always be highly regarded in my book and I would be happy to work with you again should the occasion arise.”

Emily is extremely bright and energetic.  She has 13 years of experience with every neighborhood in the Santa Barbara area and went out of her way to find the right property for my needs.  Her knowledge of legal and technical real estate issues was very impressive as we assessed various properties in the Santa Barbara area from $1 – 3 million.”

“Emily represented us even though our purchase was a private one.  After the sellers met her they also wanted her to represent them, which is a little unusual but a reflection of the positive, professional and genuine attitude of Emily.  She and her staff were efficient, patient with our questions and expedited the transaction in less than thirty days.  Emily is a gem and in the future I will always use her if need be, and enthusiastically recommend her to others.”

“My husband Tony and I met Emily in February 2011, referred to us by someone who thought highly of her. Emily spent the month of February educating us about the neighborhoods of Santa Barbara and took us to countless properties for sale.  Always upbeat and fun we were amazed at her sincere interest in achieving our goal.  We left Santa Barbara at the end of the month full of information but with no decision or purchase offer tendered.  Emily remained upbeat through our efforts and felt the most important  thing was to help us understand our goal and achieve it.

The following February, back in Santa Barbara, the market was changing and the properties available to consider minimal.  Again, Emily remained vigilant for us and positive and never pushed us to consider something inappropriate to simply close the deal.  When a private sale came to market we knew that Emily would be able to represent us professionally and fairly in our absence.  And, she did just that.  In a short time the sale was expedited, numerous requirements were met efficiently and properly.  In the end both we and the seller were represented by Emily.  Both sides of the transaction were very comfortable and confident in Emily’s personal integrity and expertise; we simply trusted her.  In the future, if we should need the advice and skills of a real estate expert we will always, always call upon Emily.  She is an absolute gem.”

“Emily was amazing in my real estate transaction!  Her knowledge of the market, inventory and process was the best I have worked with.  She had all the right people to call when we needed them and very strong working relationships with them as well.  That came to be invaluable in the process.  I would highly recommend Emily to anyone as her expertise on the market inventory and her longstanding relationships within the real estate community will make an even bigger difference than one can imagine!”

“Emily is a person of integrity and can be counted on.  She also is very compassionate and open. No force with Emily just power, love, and charisma.  I experienced being heard, and communicated to.  We worked well together from beginning to completion.  I know Emily cares about me and my needs.  From the very beginning, Emily held my had and we entered this journey, so to speak. I asked a lot of questions and Emily patiently answered them.  We spoke every day to make sure we were both taking steps in the direction we said we would. Emily is an amazing human being.  Truly a gift to all who come in contact with her!”


Kerry Zemp and Lesley Comer

“Emily has been wonderful to work with, an absolute 10. She is patient, professional and astute. We were very selective clients, taking over two years to find our perfect home, and Emily was right there the whole way, never losing confidence nor patience with us. She kept us well informed of new listings, and continually fed us information on comps, closings, etc. We have valued her smart, friendly and fun manner, and highly recommend her real estate services.”

“We recently purchased a property listed by Emily and Michelle. These ladies were always available to deal with numerous details, quick to settle any problem and extremely knowledgeable about local resources. They are an energetic and very professional team.”

“I know for a fact that had it not been for you, I would not be moving into our new home next month. Your experience, knowledge, and tenacity has helped me so much, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your ‘never take no for an answer’ attitude. Thank you for staying on top of things always and keeping me informed and sometimes just keeping me calm throughout the whole process…You never lost faith and some days I just had to trust you to keep moving forward…For that, your upbeat attitude, and your steel rod determination, I am thankful from the bottom of my heart. I will definitely recommend you to everyone needing a Realtor and hope to do business with you again.”

“All aspects of moving across the country were stressful yet exciting for us. The home search was no exception. Thankfully, we had Emily to help make the process considerably easier. She always had our best interest as top priority and never tried to sell us something that wasn’t just right for our needs. She spoke honestly about the housing market and patiently helped us weigh the pros and cons of dozens of houses until we found the right one. As soon as we did, she acted professionally and aggressively so we could close on time with as little stress as possible. We highly recommend working with Emily.”

“Working with you for both the sale of our condo and the purchase of our new home has been a delight. Your ability to find us a home that fit our desires, walk us through the purchase of that home, and time the sale of the condo could not have been orchestrated better. We attribute our real estate success to your well laid out business and marketing plans as well as your knowledge of the Santa Barbara market. Throughout our time working together you demonstrated the aptitude, character, and tenacious spirit we were looking for in a real estate professional. Your upbeat and cheerful attitude combined with superb attention to detail made us very comfortable throughout the entire process. Most importantly we always felt we were the focus of your undivided attention and that you held our best interests at heart. These skills truly set you aside as a real estate professional and as a person. Emily, you were truly a fantastic realtor to work with. We wish you nothing success and happiness in business and in life.”

“Emily McBride is the best realtor in Santa Barbara, hands down!  She is extremely knowledgeable, has tons of resources for financing, closing, inspection, repair, gardening, etc., help with your purchase, has the experience you need, and is fun!  How many realtors can you say that about–that they make the process of buying a home fun?  None.  Get Emily and enjoy the most important purchase of your life.” 


Armando and Ana Barreto

We want you to know that we are very pleased with the quality of service Emily McBride provided for us. We sincerely appreciate the responsiveness and the way Emily conducts business.  We were so pleased to hear that the deal closed, while we hate to see that we will not be communicating with Emily on such a regular basis – she has become like part of the family.  With all the last minute snags, we were worried that something would fall through the cracks, but Emily anticipated every contingency.  We appreciated the unfailing attention to detail.”

You are so meticulous in your business and put in so many hours and it really pays off.  We always know we could reach you with every little question and we felt so confident that we were being taken care of.  We appreciate all your hard work and just wanted you to know how happy we are in our new home. Thanks again!”

“Emily McBride was introduced to me by her Business Coach, a professional that we both know and highly respect at Buffini and Company. I had the opportunity to meet Emily at several business functions, engage with her at several business luncheons and have maintained correspondence with her ever since. Emily strikes me as someone who is extremely passionate about what she does and one who is committed to “going the extra mile” for the clients that she serves.

“Emily and her team went above and beyond to help us get our dream house. Emily is honest, enthusiastic, proactive and so easy to work with.  We went to look at many houses around SB county, and Emily and Michelle always made themselves available to be there with us, every step of the way. Once the escrow process begun on our house, Emily got married and left on her honeymoon. She made sure we had qualified contacts to help us through the process. While away, she even took phone calls and responded to emails, to ensure things were being handled efficiently. She is so professional and reliable, and does it all with a smile on her face,  you can tell she really loves what she does! We are so grateful to Emily and her team, for making our farfetched dream a reality.”


Brandon and Jamie Doheny

“Emily is extremely nice and personable.  She knows what to look for, both good and bad, in an home and handles negotiation with respect for all parties.  She spends as much time as you need to discuss any part of the process regardless of when that might be (10PM on a Saturday, etc.)  She is also timely and met every deadline on a quick escrow.  Likewise, she always kept us up to date about what still needed to get done and what was already done. Great agent!”

She gave us solid advice along the way and was extremely patient with us as it was our first time buying a house.  After we closed, Emily let us know that she was closing on a number of other properties during the same time as ours. We had NO idea she was so busy with other clients.
