Renae Conner - REALTOR Associate - Buyers Agent

It was a natural transition for Renae to enter into the filed of Real Estate. During her college years and beyond Renae began her selling career, and perfected her customer service skills at Nordstrom where she was employed for over 7 years. During this time Renae held various positions within the company including managing new salespeople and training new Nordstrom hires for success. She left Nordstrom to start a family and during that time she bought her first home and realized that she was quite the home improvement enthusiast. It was during this time too that Renae started her own Bookeeping Business. While she loved the feeling and pride of home ownership, she could now better understand the financial benefits, complications, and decisions to be made regarding a family's largest asset. She sold her home and moved to Santa Barbara 3 years later. Renae is committed to Santa Barbara and during her time here has purchased a home and is managing renters, and also is in the process of a complete remodel with her new husband on their current home.
