Hutch' Story

Santa Barbara is a Village and a tightly knit community. Hutch feels fortunate to have been born and raised in Santa Barbara. Having grown up and moved throughout the SB area, he attended both public and private schools, living in several different neighborhoods. Hutch utilizes this first hand local knowledge to advise his clients in finding the perfect home to fit their needs.

After graduating with highest honors from the College of Creative Studies at UCSB, Hutch moved to New York City and then to Europe for several years, working as a photographer and filmmaker. He returned to Santa Barbara in order to help his family by taking over their real estate investments and allowing them to retire comfortably.

Working with Village Properties was a natural next step in the evolution of Hutch's careers. He found the excellence of Village's business model and the family like atmosphere that encourages both a personal as well as a professional connection with clients. This was a perfect fit for his background in the business of real estate as well as his people skills and attention to detail he enjoys using in his photography and film.

"Helping people through the process of finding a home can be challenging for those without local connections and the native knowledge of what Santa Barbara has to offer. The true reward of closing a transaction is the referrals and return clients who appreciate the hard work, problem solving and integrity with which I conduct myself on their behalf."
