What is your vision for your Santa Barbara lifestyle?
Start with vision. End with Legacy.

For over thirty years, Monica Lenches Lifestyle Properties has represented buyers and sellers of fine homes and luxury estates in Montecito, Santa Barbara, Hope Ranch, Goleta, Carpinteria, and Santa Ynez.

We believe that real estate is about more than where you live, or even how you live. Finding the right home can support your larger dreams and mission, fueling your capacity to create impact. As an award-winning Realtor and Certified Life Coach,
I am here to help you find the home that best supports you, your family, and your work in the world.

As a Socially Responsible Realtor, my mission is to transform the traditional real estate transaction into a values-driven experience that empowers you and honors your vision, values, goals, and objectives...every step of the way.

Our work begins by defining your vision for the ideal lifestyle and home you want. The end result is a legacy that positively impacts everyone involved...and beyond.

It’s real estate done radically differently.
