  • You are most of all trustworthy, honest and so exceptionally capable. We would never use anyone else and would recommend you to anyone! You have class, taste and are respected by all Realtors from every office. You are a principled man, a loving family man, and a giver of kindness. You have the best work ethics and never compromise your client or do anything that is not totally above board. You have the most helpful staff and even fed our pets when showing our houses. You were a good realtor for both our selling and buying. It is a pleasure to do business with you.

  • Keith, I feel I am doing people a favor when I tell them about you, because you are the BEST Realtor and the best individual. My ears and Jon's are always up and pointed in your direction when people have real estate-related needs. You couldn't shut us off if you tried!

  • Keith helped me buy my second property and I wished I could have worked with him to shop my first one. Keith is like a godfather of realtor business in the Santa Barbara area. Decades of experience and tons of knowledge, never pushes his clients to raise the number over the market value, always patient to work with us to explain the pros and cons of certain properties. A role model to be a nice gentleman and great friend as well. His assistant Becky is equally excellent in every aspect.

  • There is no better realtor in Santa Barbara! A consummate professional in every respect with an easygoing manner. Keith takes the stress out of a sometimes stressful situation. I would definitely work with him again!

  • Keith is not only a highly skilled as a Realtor, but very honest and really cares about his clients to make sure they are happy. Becky is tops also. They are a perfect team and work endlessly together to make their clients happy. I highly recommend Keith to anyone who wants to sell their house in a reputable manner as he will bend over backwards to “make it happen”.

  • Thank you so much for all your help! Your attention to detail and organization helped make this all happen! We will forever be grateful.

  • In my 22 years in real estate, I have probably met 10,000 agents, but I have never met a better one than Keith Berry. He worked with me when I was president of the western region for Merrill Lynch Realty and subsequently as general sales manager of Jon Douglas Company. He also sold us our current home in Santa Barbara. As a residential real estate manager, I would want 1,000 Keith Berrys working for me. He is a consummate professional. He and his outstanding staff are on top of every transactional detail. He is a creative marketer, knows the market inside out, is extraordinarily respected in the real estate community and takes his business very seriously.

  • Your professional services made the buying process uncomplicated and we felt your experience was invaluable. You were attentive to our needs and were available for many important appointments at the property. We felt we were given the same time and attention purchasing a condominium as a person purchasing a million-dollar home. You ensured that our best interests were always met. Thank you for your help. We will recommend your expert services.

  • We are very appreciative of all the energy and time that you put into selling our parents' home. The selling experience of others has come to our attention, and our gratitude has only been growing. In particular we were impressed that you insisted on appointments for showing our house and that you and Becky were always there. We've discovered that is not a widespread practice. The woes of a friend of ours dealing with inspections made after the sale confirmed our sense that all inspections done in advance was indeed the right thing to do. Thank you! If we ever have the opportunity of making a Realtor recommendation in Santa Barbara, we will be most happy to mention Keith Berry at Coldwell Banker. It was a pleasure to have met you and done business with you. May God continue to bless you and all your family.

  • I have just sold my second property in Santa Barbara through Keith C. Berry Real Estate. I live out of town, so it was very important that I have complete trust in the company I deal with. For the second property, I did not even look for someone else to handle the transaction – and Keith C Berry Real Estate sold it with the same fine professionalism as the first property. I RECOMMEND THEM WITHOUT RESERVATION!

  • You are so thoughtful…and efficient, we might add. We love and appreciate our home more every day and are so grateful to you for having the patience to stick with us until we found just the right match.

  • John and I would like to express our deep appreciation to you and your staff for your excellent service during the recent sale of our house and the purchase of our new home. Your professionalism and attention to detail are unsurpassed in the real estate industry. You sold our home in one month and ably guided us through the countless decisions and details related to the purchase of our new home. When I mentioned to friends you were serving as our realtor, they all said, "You've got the best!" We couldn't agree more! We will enlist your services for any future real estate transactions and recommend you highly to any potential clients. Thank you, Keith!

  • Looks like we decided to sell at the most opportune time. Thank you for orchestrating a rapid and on the money pricing sale of our home. We are now comfortably in our new home and enjoying being with all the family. Your professional and outstanding strategy regarding the sale has allowed us to settle into our new lifestyle in a speedy and financially sound manner. Thanks again for all your help.

  • Thank you so much for all of your help in selling our mom's house. Your professionalism, integrity, and great personalities helped to make a difficult time for our family less so. Thanks for a job well done.

  • We started working with Keith Berry in 1997 on a move back to Santa Barbara where I grew up, but we weren't able to actually buy a home until 2004 because of business conflicts. Even though we worked 2 times towards property searches that didn't earn Keith a dime, he remained hardworking, friendly, honest and loyal to us throughout the nearly 7-year long process. After owning homes in 6 different cities and being a professional real estate investor with investments in 20 different states, I haven't found a more informed, steady and knowledgeable real estate broker to work with anywhere. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home in the Santa Barbara area.

  • Keith is the best Realtor in the world, who just happens to be in Santa Barbara. He understood the market for our home and nailed the price without great comps. The whole transaction was handled seamlessly. I joke with Keith that we will buy again in Santa Barbara just to work with him.

  • When Suzy and I were considering relocating to the Santa Barbara area, I contacted the president of a large, local bank to recommend a local real estate professional. He directed us to Keith Berry based on his working knowledge of Keith's integrity, work ethic, and understanding of the local market. I can unhesitatingly state Keith was the right choice. During our search, Keith exhibited patience, strong attention to detail, an unequaled knowledge of the real estate market and was very gracious to our entire family. Keith is a huge success story in both his personal and professional life and put these skills to use every day in working with us. Keith made the purchasing decision painless. His highly professional staff managed negotiations and closing with efficiency. Keith always represented our best interests. His interest was not in the deal but rather in meeting our needs. His knowledge of schools and the other areas that impact the purchasing decision was significant. After purchase, I consistently called Keith to ask him about service vendors, and he was always right on and gracious. Finally, I believe that I have a good friend in Keith Berry. With absolute confidence, I can highly recommend Keith to anyone that is interested in acquiring any level of real estate in the Santa Barbara area.

  • Keith Berry helped us purchase our residence and various rental properties. And he didn't disappear after those sales. Instead, he continues to be a friend we can always call on, a friend who puts our best interests first. Making a sale is secondary to doing the right thing for a client. His knowledge of the market and his advice are unequaled. Keith also is a solid member of the community, active in numerous charitable efforts. We respect and admire his consistent involvement in making our community better for all. Keith is the standard to which any professional should aspire. Would we recommend him to family and friends? You bet!

  • There are many wonderful things I could say about you and your associates. We feel so fortunate that you sold us our wonderful home and that we continue to work together. Our response...Keith and his associates continued to provide outstanding personal service after our home was purchased.

  • I have just celebrated my 65th birthday and over my life span have had many occasions to deal with brokers for both residential and investment property. I never met anyone who delivered what they promised the way you do. The level of commitment, professionalism, integrity and service is unmatched. You see to it through advertising, open houses, etc., that the property has the most exposure possible, making a normally difficult time as painless as possible.

  • It is with deep appreciation that I thank you for the many years of outstanding service you have provided to our family. Your professionalism, integrity, and most importantly, your trust, have played an integral part in all the assistance you have provided us. In a world of ever-increasing complexity, your ability to handle the most complicated issues is baffling. Adversity is not in your vocabulary. Unlike many busy entrepreneurs, you have always found time and resources to give to those less fortunate. Santa Barbara is a very special city, basking in worldwide recognition. Community leaders like you contribute to this acknowledgement. Keith, I will never forget all your advice, business and personal, directed to accomplishing the task at hand. Work hard, follow through with all your commitments, and good results surely will prevail. Your philosophy is synonymous with perfection. Thank you again.

  • My sisters and I appreciate the level of service Mr. Berry provided. We were able to sell our property at the asking price and much sooner than we anticipated. Keith was always available for meetings and follow up. His expertise and attention to detail guided us through the sale in a smooth and timely manner. Mr. Berry is definitely a man you can count on.

  • Keith Berry is without a shadow of a doubt the finest real estate professional in the country. Now that says a lot, but this assessment comes from comparing Keith's work with all of the professionals in real estate I have come in contact with in over 36 years of business. I have used Keith in the most difficult transactions; I have referred Keith to all my friends and acquaintances; I have never heard a word of criticism and have always been impressed with his perfect implementation and resulting success.

  • Keith is a consummate professional. He is meticulous at preparing both your home and you for the sales process. Keith has assisted me in the sale of two homes and there was never a moment when I didn’t feel completely comfortable with the transactions.

  • Keith is one of the most knowledgeable agents in the area. He understands the macro and micro aspects of the markets. I also like his relaxed attitude and helpful staff.

  • I would simply repeat what all the other positive points are about Keith and Becky except I would add if it ain’t right, they won’t do it. They go by the book and are very thorough. Keith told me things to do that I didn’t want to do, but it turned out he was right on. They know their business in the most minute details. Most of all, they have always treated me as a true friend and have been very respectful. Beyond business, it has been a real honor to know Keith and Becky.

  • Keith has a fine reputation in the Real Estate field. That alone would have us recommend him. He has all the skill required and years of local knowledge not just in the process of buying and selling houses, but also knowledge of building, buying, and maintaining homes. He has a warm personality, but he is very pragmatic about the work he does for you.

  • Keith was generous in the time he spent collecting information as well as sharing information about real estate in the area. I was impressed with Keith’s knowledge of local real estate. I was impressed that he refuses to represent both the buyer and seller—it’s one or the other, not both. He was able to choose a price that allowed the house to sell in a short period of time; the price was within the target range. I felt comfortable working with Keith and his office associate. He was responsive to questions and was a good listener when I had concerns. He was also helpful in suggesting contacts when it came to selling the contents of the house.

  • Keith is the best! Five hearts on everything! We have bought and sold two houses with him and would recommend him unconditionally!!! He is the best with real-estate knowledge and helping his clients.

  • Keith worked patiently with us in the several months it took for us to find the perfect home and remains in touch with us today, informing us of current home values in our area. He is extremely knowledgeable regarding available properties and is a well-known leader in the real estate business as well as in the community. We would strongly recommend him to anyone seeking the perfect property in their price range.

  • I felt Keith went over and above what might be expected for a very small commission deal. He guided me through every step of the process including sitting with me through the myriad details at the close of escrow. I trust him absolutely…

  • When you want excellent quality and full-service real estate services, use Keith Berry. He does not cut corners, takes care of every detail at the outset so that your sale He prevents surprises with his careful, upfront preparation. This excellent service allows you to sleep you at night during the difficult process of selling a home.

  • A family emergency necessitated my call to Keith from Florida. After explaining my tale of woe, Keith just said “don’t worry, I’ll take care of everything”. And he did …far exceeding any of my expectations. My mother’s place was sold before we would have lost it. During the years after, our family has called Keith and asked him for direction regarding our real estate. He has ALWAYS been more than gracious and helpful. Thank goodness for Keith Berry!

  • Keith was a great agent to work with. He listened to what we wanted and came up with the perfect house. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a home. I am sure he would be just as good if you were selling your home. He’s a true professional.

  • Keith always answers promptly any property inquiry I make; he is very knowledgeable about the Santa Barbara real estate market. I look forward to continuing to work with him!

  • Congratulations on being named #1 Realtor in the News-Press Reader’s Choice Awards. Obviously and deservedly you have a lot of screaming fans, led by us…..major atta boys!

  • Keith Yesterday it was 7 years ago, Sept. 21, 2000, that we closed escrow on our home. It has proved to be a great investment. I owe it all to you. Thank you so much for all you have done these last several years. Also, for being such a good friend.

  • Working with you has been a blessing for me - with your guidance through the months - all the detail - I am lucky to have had you there - for me - Thank you!

  • I don't believe that I ever sent you a proper thank you for selling my Mom's house. You truly made it so easy & there was never a doubt in my mind that I picked the best realtor -- you are the very best!

  • Thank you for doing such a great job selling Mom’s house. We appreciated all the graphs and information. My brother found working with you very easy. It was so smooth. Thank you.
