The Santa Barbara Young Professionals Club has named JJ Lambert of Sotheby’s International Realty its Young Professional of the Year.

Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider and Santa Barbara Young Professionals President Jeremy Gordon presented the award to Lambert on Thursday night.

Lambert was also recognized by Rep. Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara, state Sen. Tony Strickland, D-Thousand Oaks, and the California Legislature for his dedication and commitment to the community.

Born and raised in Santa Barbara and the Santa Ynez Valley, Lambert has a detailed knowledge of the history, geography and demographics of the county. His experience ranges from owning a small cattle ranch operation to firefighter paramedic to CEO and real estate agent.

He also has vast experience in sales and marketing, including owning several startups and holding a top sales position in a public company. He carries his experience forward in his real estate career. Adding strength to his roster of qualifications is his portfolio of personal real estate investments.

Lambert and his wife, Stephanie, a nurse, live in Santa Barbara with their two children, Wyatt and Carlee.

Outside of real estate, Lambert enjoys helping nonprofit organizations in the community and has raised thousands of dollars for local charities. He also hosts the Santa Barbara Teen Idol competition and sits on several committees for the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors and the Santa Barbara Zoo.

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.
