One of the Best Agents in the Region!
Gail already came with great recommendations from a friend and realtor when we started looking for a home in Santa Barbara. Having worked with many good and outstanding realtors over the years, Gail surpassed all our expectations! For starters, she listens, asks the right questions, knows the area and market intimately and presents the right homes listing pros and cons. Going through the negotiation and purchasing process she paid 100% attention to all contractual and technical details helping us close on time in a highly professional and courteous manner, always keeping our interests in mind.
What sets Gail apart also is that even months after closing, the relationship continues. Gail still helps in any way she can offering advice and hands-on support and we can only recommend her as one of the best agents in the region!
First Time Homebuyers
As first time homebuyers, Gail made the home buying experience as painless as possible for us. She took the time to explain each step of the process so we knew exactly what we were signing and what we were getting into. In a tough, stressful market she provided us with several options and worked through each with us. She was very attentive to our concerns and provided both her emotional and professional support. Gail is truly a caring individual that makes it her personal goal to help you through every step of the home buying adventure.
Many thanks to Gail! We absolutely will return to her for advice or future home purchases.
Long Distance Selling Made Easy
Selling a home long distance is difficult.
Gail guided me through the listing, contract of sale, and closing of the property in a very professional manner.
First Time Seller
First-time seller and I'm so happy I had Gail as my Realtor. Gail explained what I didn't understand so I could understand. She always had my best interest in mind looking for the perfect buyer. She always kept in touch either by email or phone let me know what was going on with the property, Gail emailed trends that were going on in the neighborhood. I felt very comfortable and had no worries working with Gail.
She's the Best.
Gail very knowledgable, friendly, resourceful and patient. Buying a home can be stressful, she gave us hope and helped us to take our time giving us confidence toward making a wise decision. We highly recommend her!!!

We moved into our first home in Santa Barbara. Being a first time home buyer it was great to have Gail as she made the entire process almost Very easy. Gail was very easy to reach, whether over the phone or email, and any questions we had were explained in a very easy to understand manner. She works very hard to accommodate us always available and have shown us many homes before we found the perfect one.
Would highly recommend for anyone looking a new home in Santa Barbara
Best Real Estate Agent on the Planet!
One career choice I cannot imagine myself in is Real Estate Agent. Gail Cooley is the best real estate agent on the planet because she is the epitome of house wisdom (especially when it comes to which neighborhood you want to be in for your kiddos). Gail was always available to us, even when she wasn't really available. She made us feel as though we were her priority even though I know Gail was helping other clients at the time. Towards the end of the process, I needed to go to Urgent Care. Gail waited for me to finish my appointment and picked me up and brought me home when I wasn't well enough to drive myself. Gail understands that home buying is very stressful, and she is very creative about helping with ideas and resources. Gail gave up a good part of her commission for us since we were enrolled in the Coastal Housing program, and I know we are recipients of her finest work. Thank you, Gail, for everything!
Out of Town Buyers
My spouse and I recently moved into the area from Chicago due to my job. Gail reduced the stress of the biggest move of our lives with her calm nature, persistence in finding us choices to look at and her knowledge and thoroughness in educating us about the different areas within greater Santa Barbara.
Gail is the hardest working realtor I have ever met. She was very accessible during the whole process and went the extra mile in a number of occasions including coming to my office to pick up disclosure forms and making sure copies were left for me. Who does that anymore?
On top of her great knowledge and creative problem solving, she is also a delight to get to know as a person. I highly recommend Gail for any real estate needs.

Quick & Painless Sale
Gail did everything and I was impressed! So nice to have such a quick & painless sale. I appreciated her help and guidance.
Real Estate Agent with Integrity
We have enjoyed such a good relationship with Gail for the last two years and we would not hesitate to recommend her as a real estate agent with integrity that provides a full service to her clients.
Special in Helping My Transition to Santa Barbara
I have been living in my new place for a few months now and it is still unbelievable (too good to be true). I am still adjusting to living in my own home in beautiful Santa Barbara. Gail was full of kindness during all the work she did for me. I am so happy my friend suggested I contact Gail. She is truly very special and so helpful with my transition to Santa Barbara
Positive experience of Selling
Thank you, Gail, for all your help, good advice, and the whole positive experience of selling. I have learned a lot through this short, but fun journey with you!
Understanding of What I Wanted
Gail really understood what I wanted and was looking for. It took me 17 months to locate the home that I bought, and she was very patient on this journey.
I would highly recommend Gail if you're looking for a realtor to help either buying or selling a house. Gail is super responsive; I would get her feedback within minutes. I'm a first-time buyer and Gail was very patient, taking me to numerous homes, answering all my questions, going through inspection report line by line. She always stays on top of everything, keeping real-time communication with seller agent, lender, and escrow officer. After purchasing the house, she constantly checked in and asked if any help was needed. It was very fortunate for me to have as my agent and will definitely go to her for all future real estate needs.
An Honest Agent
Gail is an honest agent, willing to tell you how it is. She knows the area very well and not only helped us rent a place, she helped us both buy and sell our houses in Carpinteria. She provided us with plenty of market information, did more open houses than I thought was possible, and made sure we were comfortable every step of the way. As we moved out of the area, we were sad we wouldn't be able to work with her again. Who knows? Maybe we'll be back and we'll know who to call.
My Wholehearted Endorsement
It is with great pleasure that I recommend Gail Cooley, real estate agent expert focused on the Santa Barbara area market.
Gail worked with me for almost 10 months helping to find my perfect home in very difficult market conditions with unprecedented competition among buyers. She helped me understand our needs and kept working for us patiently even after several of our offers were not accepted by the sellers.
Gail has always displayed a high degree of integrity, responsibility, and courtesy. I was comfortable relying on her judgment in difficult situations associated with real estate transaction. Gail was able to effectively resolve problems, as well as provide any help my family needed, often going far beyond her normal responsibilities.
Gail would be a great asset to anybody who needs help with any kind of real estate transaction, and I am happy to give her my wholehearted endorsement.
From Another Agent
It is always a pleasure to work with Gail. How refreshing it is to have someone with integrity and calm and clear thinking within the midst of the often stressful and sometimes stormy conditions in our industry. I truly appreciate Gail Cooley.
