For years, the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors has had access to a wonderful resource. Through our Multiple Listing Service, agents post their open houses, and that list is distributed to our Web sites as well as at the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors Web site,

As consumers, you now will have access online for the most up-to-date list. This easy access on your cell phones will allow you to easily access the properties that you are interested in seeing as well as the details of the listing.

As time goes on, the open house directory on will be even more valuable, allowing you to review it whenever it’s convenient for you.

On Sunday, June 20, there were 112 properties on the open house list.

If you’re interested in a specific price range of properties, the list makes it easy to find what you’re looking, allowing more efficient use of your time.

We enjoy making this new service available to you.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
