As a critical component of a national real estate firm, we have access to real-time market data and trends to assist our clients, for one property or a portfolio of properties. Tom will cover current market trends in North Santa Barbara County (Santa Maria, Lompoc and Santa Ynez Valley) for retail, office, and industrial outlook.
