“I had the pleasure of enlisting Louise McKaig’s services for my recent real estate dealings and have been so pleased. Louise Mckaig is the best there is in Santa Barbara real estate, no joke, she’s the best! I didn’t know her before and was just recommended word of mouth pretty much but my family has come to simply love her. Louise is hard working, passionate, trustworthy, and just an all-round great person to be near and work with. From my experience and what I’ve heard around town, if you are looking into high end homes for sale in the area (Santa Barbara, Goleta, Hope Ranch, Montecito, etc) than Louise Mckaig is pretty much the best there is. Village properties also has a very nice set up and they are known for their community involvement and sponsoring schools and that kind of thing. Highly recommend Louise Mckaig and Village Properties to anyone.”

– Montecito luxury estate seller

 

“I live in beverly hills area and work in the entertainment industry, so I’ve occasionally crossed paths with louise’s son over the years. I told him I was tired of the Hollywood craziness so he recommended Montecito and put me in contact with Louise. I am so glad I pursued this. Montecito is so beautiful and Louise McKaig is the top realtor in Montecito in my book. She’s been showing me around and has a real way in making you feel comfortable. Louise is very sharp and not pushy at all, she’s just there to help. If you’ve never been to Montecito I highly recommend and you should stay at the Biltmore hotel. It’s right on the beach and when it comes time to tour houses it’s very close to the neighborhoods. The beach just in front of the hotel was fantastic as well. It makes sense why Opra and Ty warner live there. It’s such a beautiful place and very secluded. Just love it!”

My daughter is now getting ready to work with her as well when they move back home into the area. Louise is a top quality agent and person. You always feel like she’s working for you and always on your side. Very trustworthy and very good at her job. Glad to know her, highly recommend, and will continue to refer friends and family.”

“Louise is knowledgeable about real estate and working with people, and tenacious so that her clients are successful.”

– Luxury home seller

 

 “We first met Louise at a real estate and business conference in Texas, and then again bumped into her in New York. Louise McKaig brings a wealth of knowledge with her. She studies and stays up on investment trends, travels all over to coach and teach even experienced real estate investors like myself. We’re moving from the multi unit investment platform and now looking more into the luxury home vacation rentals (Santa Barbara, Montecito, Beverly Hills, Cannes, Aspen, San Francisco, Zurich, Santa Monica, Mauai, Pacific Palisades, etc) Louise is amazing to know, learn from, and work with. Such an easy going person, yet knows exactly what we need. It’s very difficult to find well educated agents with experience at working with both investors and high end homes, so we’re very lucky to have met her. Louise is the absolute best realtor we’ve dealt with in the country and we’re looking forward to a long lasting and productive relationship here in Montecito & Santa Barbara.”

“Louise handled all of the inevitable challenges that come up in home buying process with grace and professionalism.”

– Santa Barbara Buyer

 

“We came from out of town looking for various types of high-end real estate investments and on our stop in Santa Barbara and Montecito we were introduced to Louise Mckaig at village properties through the Christies Luxury Estates. I thought village was really nice, clean, high quality offices and building, good location, large staff but not too large, they have a good reputation in the local community from what we gathered around town. Louise Mckaig is a fantastic real estate agent and really spent time with us. It turns out she was born and raised in Santa Barbara from generations back so she really was able to give us a lot of information and an insiders view of locations, history, good investments, etc. On top of that, her credentials, training, background, etc. were like no other agent we had worked with before, which was refreshing. We’ve worked with a lot of real estate companies over the years throughout the USA and I think it really speaks highly of a company when they hire well trained, quality agents, with degrees and certificates, who, most importantly, are locals that stay in touch with the local community. We were very happy with our time spent SB and we will definitely be coming back into town to work with village properties when the opportunity arises. While in the area we stayed at both the biltmore hotel and the baccara resort and spa which we both highly recommend as well. At the biltmore be sure to take a stroll on butterfly beach and if you get a massage at the baccara be sure to ask for brian.”

“I highly recommend Louise for purchasing or selling a home in the Santa Barbara area.”

“Louise worked hard to make sure our offer was accepted and helped us understand each step.”

– Montecito home seller

 

“The minute we walked into the open house we felt at home & comfortable with Louise & the house. We felt confident of her knowledge of the area.”

– luxury home buyer and seller

 

“Louise represents her real estate clients with relentless dedication.”

– Santa Barbara home buyer

 

“I am relocating to Montecito just to have a place to relax and do hikes, beach, etc. I have been very impressed with Louise and I am very happy to write a few reviews and recommend her. I don’t normally write reviews but since I mostly use trulia and zillow I will probably review her on both sites just to let people know how very happy I have been. Louise mckaig is very smart and what I loved is that she was not pushy but instead took the time to sit down with me and review our options and weigh the cost to benefit of moving up here and still commuting down to Los Angeles for work. While all the homes for sale in Montecito are very nice, her local knowledge gives us a better understanding to locations, local schools, the country club, etc which takes out a lot of the guess work in deciding which homes to buy or put an offer in on. You can really tell when an agent has experience and when they are looking out for your best interest by the way they treat you on your first meeting and Louise Mckaig was fantastic. I really loved montecito as well and am very happy with our decision. When it comes to real estate in Montecito Louise McKaig is the best there is. Really when it comes to real estate in general this has been the best experience I’ve had.”

“We are so so happy to recommend Louise. Louise Mckaig is an absolute delight. She was so nice in helping us with our home. When we were researching who to work with we wanted someone who was on the top of the business and knowledgeable in working with high end homes. We found just that with louise and I’m so happy we did. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. I enjoyed working with her very much. She was relentless in getting us exactly what we wanted and negotiated on our behalf the entire time. We always felt like she was on our side.”

“By far one of the best experiences I ever had with a real estate agent. Louise Mckaig is beyond experienced and professional. On top of being one of the absolute best in the high end real estate business, she is also the loveliest person I know. She is one of the most sought after agents in the area yet always has time to help me and my family with any questions or concerns we have. She was especially pleasant and accommodating with my mother in law. I highly recommend Louise and will continue to refer all of my friends that are selling in the Montecito area. Thanks Louise :)”

 “Agents like louise mckaig and village properties are so key in this game. especially in the high end Hope Ranch game. I learned a lot from my last sale and its so important to find a born and raised local like louise when you’re gonna buy a house. Locals know the history, have the contacts to get the inside scoops, and they actually care about the community because they’re connected to it and so are there families. Those are the kind of real estate agents you can trust… Just my experience.”
