This is the largest publication in the greater Santa Barbara area with a readership of approximately 120,000. Daniel commented on being voted this prestigious award three of the last four years by saying:
My focus is NOT on business growth, but on finding ways to continue to improve my service, put better systems in place, and above all, to find creative ways to add value to every person I encounter. People sense my desire to serve, and to put their best interest above my own. I give the same neutral counsel to someone I just met, as I would to a close friend or family member.
As a successful and experienced entrepreneur, Daniel applies his creativity and out-of-the-box thinking to his leadership of the Zia Group and extensive marketing campaigns for Zia Group listings. When Daniel founded a successful company in the automotive industry in 2000, which earned the best reputation in the industry for customer service and lifelong client care, the National Association of the Self-Employed labeled Daniel as the ‘Future Entrepreneur of the Year’. Daniel and his team apply that same client-centered approach to real estate, believing that ethics, innovation, and customer service must be the foundation of any company that will successfully ride the waves of market trends.
