Nick Svensson, Melissa Birch & Judy Frank Realtors®
We specialize on fine homes and estates in the Montecito, Hope Ranch and surrounding Santa Barbara Area.
As a top producing agent, Nick specializes in the marketing and sale of properties within the greater Santa Barbara locale. Beginning his career in 1996, Nick has consistently excelled in sales volume, while representing his clients with the utmost attention to detail and care; as required in such an important field of business.
Early success with his first company, Fred Sands Realtors, was reflected by his recognition within the Executive Circle; reserved for the top ten percent of agents. After four years with Fred Sands Realtors, Nick chose to join Sotheby's International Realty in Montecito. Ultimately, after 16 years, making a place for himself within the top 3% of the parent company's 42,500 agents worldwide.
In 2016, he chose to add a new chapter to his career by joining Compass where a new range of marketing and software tools have given him a greater ability to succeed in representing his clients and friends.
"I strive to represent my clients with integrity and commitment so that we build a professional relationship that lasts a lifetime"
Born in Linköping, Sweden; Nick arrived in Santa Barbara at a mere 5 months old. While he has been excited to call Santa Barbara home since 1972; he still keeps his Swedish roots intact and is fluent in the language.
When not at the office or out with clients, he can be found in the ocean surfing, on a beach lounging, a sideline coaching one of his two boys or spending quality with his wife of 17 years; a local elementary school teacher.
"I am always available to assist with any of my clients' real estate needs with excitement and enthusiasm"
Purchasing a home is often the biggest decision you’ll make in your lifetime. As a longtime Santa Barbara resident, Melissa has intimate knowledge of the area, which makes her well-suited to accommodate clients' desires to be in neighborhoods specific to their lifestyles.
Melissa’s clients all share an authentic relationship with her both personally and professionally. In the end, keeping a reputation of integrity and honesty has kept her successful for 17 years through past client referrals, many of whom she calls friends. Melissa continues to understand the importance of the local connections, latest real estate technology and market trends.
Melissa enthusiastically utilizes all of the latest marketing innovations, and takes personal interest and attention into every detail from photo shoots to complex negotiations and inspections, and even down to the custom doormats provided at her closings.
Currently working at Compass in the prestigious Montecito, California office. She now boasts over 200 closings throughout her career. Melissa brings her impeccable professionalism to transactions to all of her clients, whether ranging from modest condominiums to multimillion dollar estates.
Underscoring Melissa's contagious enthusiasm and undeniable appeal as a realtor is her love and appreciation for Santa Barbara. Melissa's clients often speak of her strong sense of community, whether she is supporting one of her kids’ schools, or enjoying the local scene with her husband. It's not unusual for her to be in contact with clients long after escrow closes, whether for assistance with additional property or, with choosing the best restaurant for a special occasion.
In 1977, when Judy moved to Santa Barbara, she immediately fell in love with this easy-going beachside community she still calls home. Back then, stoplights still slowed the pace of cars on the 101 freeway, and the sense of a sophisticated small town still intent on maintaining its casual beachside attitude was starting to come into focus. It didn’t take long for Judy to gravitate towards a career in real estate as she had an authentic passion for wanting to share her love of Santa Barbara with others.
Judy spent several years selling real estate, and also established her own mortgage company, “Judy Frank Financial”, which served thousands of local Santa Barbara families for more than a decade. Judy has always maintained that Santa Barbara is a wonderful place to raise a family, and is relishing in having her grandchildren carry on some of her favorite traditions, like the Fiesta Children’s Parade, and the renowned arts and culture of this vibrant city.
Her business acumen through owning her own company, and serving on several company and homeowner association boards gives her a thorough understanding of how to provide guidance to both buyers and sellers in their real estate endeavors.
Judy has a reputation for being a strong negotiator, extremely reliable, and has a ‘make it happen’ work ethic. Her infectiously positive attitude makes her someone that people find easy and enjoyable to work with.
