What People Say

"My husband and I have worked with Crysta Metzger for the past six years. During that time, she handled the rental of our home on Picacho Lane. She found and vetted three sets of tenants for us, verifying that they were suitable as renters and financially responsible individuals. She worked as a tactful and wise go-between when we as landlords needed something done on the house and she was equally diplomatic if the tenants had a problem that required our attention. When we decided to put the house on the market, she was knowledgeable and pro-active in presenting the property to prospective buyers. Once we had an interested party, she guided us through the selling process, which was a win-win for all of us."

Sue & Steve | Montecito

"As a lawyer and real estate investor, I have high standards for representation, and Crysta has far and away exceeded them. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional and responsive, as well as adept with more complex transactions. Most importantly, she is trustworthy, ethical and focused on your tastes and needs as the buyer. My husband and I have purchased multiple homes with Crysta and will continue to turn to her for our real estate needs."

Sarah Trigueiro | Carpinteria Foothills

"Crysta Metzger is an exceptional realtor who is honest, sincere, experienced, and incredibly dedicated to her profession. We were thrilled with all of our transactions with Crysta. She was able to sell our home in record time without any hurdles or surprises...we even were offered asking price because of her knowledge of the real estate market. Crysta was also our leasing agent when we rented our home on a monthly basis. She chose fantastic tenants which excites us for all future opportunities. All in all, Crysta is a first class exceptional Realtor!!!"

Michael Haber | Montecito

"If you need to lease or sell a home, Crysta is the absolute best realtor you could ever find. She is knowledgeable about the market, extremely professional, cheerful, helpful in every way, and gets the job done. Over the years, she has consistently gone above and beyond my expectations. I truly cannot say enough good things about her!"

Janet Mills | Montecito & Summerland

"She is very responsive and professional. Her knowledge and insight of the rental market was very helpful. I would strongly recommend her to others. "

The Bernsteins | Montecito

"Crysta gets it. She represented me as a seller, and truly sold the attributes instead of merely listing them. We ended up renting it instead, for a good fair price, and now she is managing it for me and the tenants, and doing a fine job."

Tom Monroe | Riviera | 2018

"I recently had Crysta represent me as a purchaser of a secondary home. Being from out of town, Crysta made everything easy. She certainly is an expert of all things Santa Barbara and went above and beyond in making sure we were happy and well informed."


"We were very pleased with Crysta’s performance in helping us find our new house. She was terrific: thoughtful, proactive, kind, conscientious, shrewd, energetic. We were the backup buyer on a property in a hot market. Crysta was able to help us navigate the challenging circumstances and get the house. She was a great partner in navigating all phases of the process. We recommend her, and will use her again next time."

"Crysta is above and beyond the job description. She’s precise and creative ,superior to any professional I’ve ever worked with. I’ve had six business opportunities with her and she’s the reason they all were successful."


"We researched and worked with several realtors to help u with our home search in Santa Barbara, and ultimately chose Crysta as we were super impressed with her knowledge and hustle. We felt like she took the time to understand our goals and identify which neighborhoods and home styles would be best for us. We felt like we were in great hands throughout the search, and were impressed by how much Crysta knows about homes in general (especially given that many homes we looked at needed some work). Crysta ultimately found us our dream home and made the entire process painless and stress-free. We'd highly recommend her, and look forward to working with her again in the future (although not too soon – we love our house! :) )."
