About the owner: I am a Doctor of Chiropractic and I practiced in my solo office for 16 years. As I worked as a chiropractor I began purchasing houses and apartments. Many of them were fixers. I had fun refurbishing them! A few years ago I sold my Chiropractic business and now I manage my apartments and vacation rentals full time! I grew up in Fresno, CA and then moved to Santa Barbara to attend college. I then moved to Los Angeles area to attend Chiropractic College. After graduating I returned to Santa Barbara! I couldn't stay away!! I now live in Montecito in the Guest House of the Sycamore Canyon Estate!!
Why the Owner Chose Montecito:
When I was looking for my next property to buy, I knew I wanted to find one in Montecito. This is because the properties in Montecito can be large with an acre or more and because it is gorgeous, peaceful, safe and desirable! I wanted a large Estate with a guest house, 1 acre, pool, many bedrooms and bathrooms and on a large beautiful street with a long driveway. I found all that in The Sycamore Canyon Estate!
