“We live in Hope Ranch several months of the year and the rest abroad. Eric fulfills a critical role for our family while we are in Santa Barbara as well as when we are abroad. The key functions we entrust Eric with are full personal financial management and home/property logistics. By having Eric manage all our personal finances and house administration, it leaves me with more time for business as well as personal time with the family. Additionally, Eric has been very resourceful in improving many aspects of our lives including our insurance, health care providers, landscaping, home safety, travel planning, wine storage, etc... We also find it economical. Although we rely on Eric for many activities, the cost savings he has been able to implement on our home and life insurance cover most of his costs. Additionally, given that Eric has been part of the Santa Barbara community for a long time, we are able to trust him fully, which gives a great degree of comfort and peace of mind.”

“We hired Rheinschild & Associates to manage our property in Montecito. As absentee owners, we had struggled with managing gardeners, cleaners, simple repairs, vacationing friends and property improvements that are a part of second home ownership. 'Has the pool really been turned off?', 'Are the gardeners working the hours they bill?' 'Who can open the house for the stove delivery and find a plumber/electrician?', a few of the typical questions we wrestled with over the previous 7 years. The answer turned out to be hiring Eric.
During the time we have worked together, Eric has made the property management both much easier and more cost-effective. We created a custom menu of services we wanted Eric to provide and others he proactively sought out (by unilaterally deciding to manage our hot water heaters, spa, pool and house heat he reduced our utility costs by 75%). By opening up the house for guests, dealing with false alarms, fixing broken faucets, managing construction projects and directing the gardening crew, he has relieved the headache of hiring and orchestrating multiple subcontractors.
Eric is competent and trustworthy, and our association with his firm has been a home run”.
