Deja Rabb comes to Village Properties with over 5 years of experience in the real estate industry. With a background in interior design, her natural eye and attention to detail are what she brings to every transaction.
Why Deja got Started
Deja’s love for spaces and her ability to highlight the unique (or even the odd!) and turn it into something functional and desirable was the impetus for her transition into real estate. Being a recent home buyer herself, she attended countless open houses. She realized that many of these homes, with just some thought and focus on details could have been seen as really exciting properties to more buyers.
What she does
For her buyers, Deja applies her background in design to viable spaces, offering a whole new perspective on how to enjoy and utilize potential properties. It can be challenging at times to find properties you love; Deja helps her buyers to see the potential and even come to love properties they may have never considered. Sellers benefit from staging and design experience, coupled with tried and true marketing strategy, giving their properties maximum advantage. Deja goes above and beyond for her clients to make sure their properties are represented at their very best. She continually highlights to both agents and prospective buyers alike a property’s versatility, therefore increasing the number of potential buyers and ensuring the property sells for top dollar.
What is Important
Being a local mother of four, her endless patience and ability to anticipate her clients’ needs seamlessly is priceless. Deja takes great pride in being a hands-on and accessible agent. Any time of day, no question is too small. Buying a home can be a very daunting process. She has been on both sides of a transaction and strives to make sure her clients know she always has their best interest in mind.
Whether you’re buying or selling your first home, income property, retirement or vacation home, Deja knows it’s a privilege to handle all your Santa Barbara real estate needs.
