When you enjoy what you do, the rest comes easy.

Over his 40-year career, Steve Golis has amassed multifamily and commercial sales amounting to more than 13,000 units sold, with sales volume during the past decade alone exceeding more than $1 billion. Since 1979, he has been involved in all aspects of marketing residential income and multi-family property on the Central Coast, wielding his extensive knowledge and skills honed over the years to connect investors with the most suitable property.

Widely considered the market leader in his specialty, Steve is regularly called on to present at local professional events as an expert in the apartment sector. He is also a contributing author for the UCSB Economic Forecast Project, the Greater Central California Coast Forecast Project and the California State Economic Project. The Santa Barbara Association of Realtors has honored Golis with the Jack Kelly Award for Most Challenging 1031 Exchange (2013, 2018), as well as the Howard C. Gates Achievement Award recognizing the stand-out sale of the year (2018), the first time a commercial broker has received the award.

As a long-time supporter of the community, Steve recently accepted the position of co-chair for the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women. He is also involved in multiple organizations, including Rancheros Visitadores, Santa Barbara Trail Riders and Old Spanish Days, and is a board member of the Community Housing Council.
