Since 1976, Kerry Mormann & Associates has been the recognized leader in Santa Barbara County for the marketing and sale of Ranches, Agricultural Properties, Estates, and Vineyards. With well over 350 sales under our belt, we are familiar with most of the ranches in our territory. In fact, we have probably sold most of those ranches, sometimes more than once. Our inventory of properties for sale usually ranges from between 15 - 25 listings priced between $1-150 Million. Our largest sale ever, the Cojo - Jalama Ranch, listed at $155 Million, closed in January 2007. This may be the most expensive non-commercial real estate sale in California history.
Farm and ranch brokering is a very different business when compared to residential real estate and requires a high degree of technical knowledge where exchanges and complex contingencies are common. Over the past 20 years, we have closed hundreds of escrows averaging over $30 million in sales per year. Typical listed properties range in size from 5 acres up to 24,000+ with price ranging from $500,000 to over $150 million. Property usages in the county include equestrian, grazing, dry farming, irrigated farming, vineyards, orchards, recreation, luxury estates, and private lifestyle properties.
Kerry Mormann and his associates have joined the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties is the nation’s largest franchisee of the BHHS Real Estate Network and one of the top five brokerages in the nation with over $12 billion in annual sales. Having an already established Luxury Properties Division, BHHS has created a new Ranch & Land division with Kerry L. Mormann as the Director. Kerry’s years of experience is key to the marketing, and selling of the lifestyle that comes with these spectacular properties.
Kerry Mormann and his associates will continue to offer their traditional one-on-one service. In this specialized market, they cover all of Santa Barbara County and portions of Ventura and San Luis Obispo County.
Reputation, experience, knowledge, contacts, honesty, integrity, and results are the cornerstones upon which our brokerage will continue to grow and develop. We have the knowledge and the tools to get the job done.
