Moving Real Estate Forward

Welcome to Mission Hills

One cannot deny the urban, sophisticated vibe that sets Mission Hills, CA apart from other neighborhoods in Santa Barbara County. After all, it’s one of the places called home by corporate hotshots and top executives in this region of California.

Covering only 1.237 square miles of land, Mission Hills is the smallest among the county’s neighborhoods with a population of roughly 4,000 people. But what it lacks in size, it more than makes up in terms of its impressive array of residences that are architectural and engineering marvels, created by some of the most prolific master architects of modern house design.
