I had the pleasure of doing business with Dustin in the purchase of my new home. Dustin continually impressed me with his professionalism, open communication, and work ethic. He was always looking forwarded to anticipate potential issues and working them prior to smoothly continue the process of the purchase. I highly recommend Dustin for any real estate transaction.
We highly recommend Dusty as proactive but not pushy realtor. As a Santa Barbara native he has great local knowledge about neighborhoods and schools and gave reliable advice. He was very patient for picky home buyers (us) and was very supportive through the entire purchase process. He was always available to show us homes and very responsive to phone calls and emails. We had a great experience with Dusty.
I can’t say enough about what a great experience it was to work with Dusty. I told him what I was looking for and the same evening he sent me at least 7 listings to look at and choose to go look at. It was an easy and comfortable experience. He knows so much about the area. He helped facilitate a lender, inspections and potential contractors. He was always available to answer questions and never made me feel like I was intruding or being unreasonable. It was a pleasure, and I highly recommend Dusty Baker as a realtor if you want have a low stress experience in the difficult endeavor of purchasing a new home.
Many thanks to you and Steve for the outstanding job you did helping us find out house in Santa Barbara. We asked a lot of you and we weren’t the easiest people to please, especially buying from across the country, but you were very patient and remained pleasant at every turn. You really made it easy, and all our (many) questions and even wrote a letter of recommendation for our daughter when she was looking for a rental... well beyond the call of duty. You know your Santa Barbara neighborhoods and you have been a delight to work with. Rest assured that we will be calling you again when our daughter is ready to buy in Santa Barbara and we will be sure to recommend you.
We have purchased multiple properties in a variety of counties in California and have yet to experience the level of service provided by Dusty Baker. Throughout the course of this long ordeal, and it was a long ordeal, Dustin kept us informed, responded promptly to any inquiry from us, and kept us appraised of any aberrations in the process of which there were many. His level of service and pride is a credit to his profession. We can only hope that in any future transactions we are privileged to work with a realtor as professional as Dustin.
I just recently closed and moved into my first home. Dusty was a huge help through out the entire process. Never pushy, and helped us find a home that was right for us. Dusty and his team continued to support us from the beginning of our search to the end, even helping with the move after we closed! Thanks again, our process had some bumps in the road and some stress that was out of our control and Dusty and his team helped us navigate it as positively and smoothly as possible. Thanks!
Dusty is a wonderful realtor that we had the privilege of working with when buying our first home in Santa Barbara. He is very professional and knowledgeable and was always available to answer questions and provide insight. He’s deeply connected with the Santa Barbara area, which is a fantastic resource when researching inspectors, contractors, or anything else related to home-owning. Dusty even advocated for some credit from the seller after one of the inspections revealed some additional work was needed beyond the original estimate! If you’re looking for a responsive, friendly, professional, knowledgeable, honest, hard-working realtor, look no further than Dusty Baker!
As first time home buyers we didn’t know what to expect, but we never imagined this whole process to be as easy as it was. In fact, based on what our family and friends expressed, we were prepared for Armageddon compared to what we actually experienced. Steve and Dusty truly carried us through every step of the way and kept us on top of everything as if we were their only clients. We’ve never been as confident in a referral as we are for these two. Their professionalism and insight will surely leave you wanting to refer them too! We can’t thank them enough! No matter how much you think you know about real estate and property, you will learn and grow from them. They’re the best in the business and that’s all to say about that.
The stars are here for a good reason, they’re earned...My husband and I are not novices when it comes to buying and selling homes, but as we are not from California, we weren’t as familiar with the rules, the turf and the particulars, many of them unique to Santa Barbara. Dusty became our ‘eyes’ and our ‘ears’ to the level that we felt we were there with him and he with us the whole way through to closing and beyond. If you seek an agent who will be responsive, professional and attentive to your needs in order to help make the very stressful process of home buying work to your distinct advantage, know that Dusty will be relentlessly hard working and caring of your concerns to diligently cover every detail from showings through closing day. I recommend Dusty with the highest acknowledgment without any hesitation - he’s the ‘real deal’ personified.
Wow, what a whirlwind! From the time [friend] gave me a raving recommendation until now – you have always conducted yourself with a casual, self-confident professionalism. You were always available, responsive, honest, and a teammate. Liz and I could not have chosen a better person to sell our house. We are very appreciative of all your hard work – especially at the end... all the way to the end. Thank you!!
