Santa Barbara native Gabe Grandcolas has joined Knight Real Estate Group of Village Properties.

Grandcolas is a graduate of the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business (cum laude) and Santa Barbara High School.

“Gabe will go to any length to ensure a client has what they need,” said Kelly Knight, founder of Knight Real Estate Group.

Knight said Grandcolas’ integrity and client-centric approach impressed her immediately. “He really listens, and his attention to detail to ensure the best possible outcome, no matter the circumstances, make our clients feel instantly comfortable.”  

“It’s a thrill to be able to work in the community I love,” Grandcolas said. “Through my time working with Kelly, I have learned firsthand how impactful agents are in the buying and selling process.

“Kelly’s dynamic clientele and sophisticated professional approach resonated with my interests and style. We both quickly recognized that we make a great team.”

Before joining Knight Real Estate Group in 2022, Grandcolas assisted Knight, a former business and real estate attorney who spent years practicing at a top area law firm.

With Grandcolas’ assistance, Knight Real Estate Group successfully closed more than $100 million in sales transactions over the past two years, and helped 42 buyers and sellers navigate the area’s evolving real estate market.

Knight Real Estate Group, founded in 2020, is part of Village Properties, with offices in Montecito, Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez. The group was the No. 1 producer in Village Properties’ Santa Barbara office for 2022, and the No. 3 producer company-wide.
