On A Personal Note


collageKirsten Wolfe

“I fell in love with real estate at a very young age. Growing up in Europe and moving often I realized what an important role a Realtor played in my family’s life

My father was an executive with General Motors and my family lived in France, Belgium, and Ireland until moving back to the United States at the age of 14. While living in Europe I was introduced to horses which put me on the path to competing in Hunter Jumper events with my horse Tess. Tess is now retired and enjoying herself in a pasture with an Ocean view here in Santa Barbara. Along with Tess, I have two Maine Coon cats, Max and Charlie.

Guiding people and their families on what is often their greatest investment has been a rewarding experience. After all, there’s no place more important than the one you call home. I have successfully represented buyers and sellers of fine real estate since 2000.”

“I was born in Stamford, Connecticut, and grew up in Pound Ridge, New York. I am the youngest of four boys, and have a younger sister. In 1970 I played basketball for Fox Lane High School in Bedford, New York. We went all the way to the New York State Basketball Championships. At 6’4” I played guard, and was the team’s top scorer and rebounder. I then attended Rollins College in Winter Park Florida, and Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri where I also played ball.

In 1974 I moved to Marin County in the San Francisco Bay Area where I spent two summers playing semi-professional basketball. At that time I worked at a very popular restaurant in Sausalito called the Trident where I worked with Robin Williams for three years. In 1983 I went on to work for a large advertising agency in San Francisco, Mega Media, as a copywriter, illustrator, and idea person.. In 1984 and 1985 I tried my hand at stand up comedy, and opened for a variety of notable San Francisco rock groups. In 1985 I decided to get my real estate license, and within 3 years I was the top producing agent at Merrill Lynch Realty. Throughout my real estate career in Marin County I always placed in the top 10 percent of real estate agents.”

“In 2002 we met through a mutual friend. As our lives began to intertwine personally and professionally we decided to merge our real estate businesses together with the belief that as a team we could offer much more to support our client’s goals and objectives.

In 2010 Kirsten and I decided that as much as we loved the Bay Area and Marin County that there was still something more we wanted to experience. We wondered, if we could do what we do anywhere – where would be the most amazing place to live and practice real estate. The answer was simple. Santa Barbara!

In January of 2011 we moved to Santa Barbara, and have not looked back. We love it here, and we love working for Douglas Elliman Real Estate!”
