Coming from a traditional East Coast family, Brian found his first profession in the world of finance working for a bond house. Upon moving to Santa Barbara in 1996 he continued in finance where he eventually became a money manager for one of the nation’s largest fee only advisers.
Looking for a greater challenge he obtained his law degree, passed the California Bar and shortly thereafter becoming an Attorney. Working for an advisory company performing mergers and acquisitions he still sought something more. Transitioning into real estate investments he obtained his real estate license and found his niche.
Now Brian and his wife Natalie Grubb have formed a strong real estate team, Natalie having over a decade’s worth of Santa Barbara high-end real estate experience matched with Brian’s legal, financial and construction background. With a genuine interest in others’ well being and happiness, they provide an incredible team that has experience and skill set beyond the capabilities of any one person.

Raised in a “real estate family”, I credit my exposure to real estate from a young age as being vital to my professional success. Before real estate, I worked in the music industry as a concert producer, where my focus was talent booking and driving ticket sales through online marketing. Today, I carry that marketing experience into real estate by providing sellers with “out of the box” strategies to get their homes sold.
Through hard work and savings, I’ve purchased five properties in Santa Barbara before the age of 27. I know what it feels like to find incredible investment opportunities and to build wealth through real estate, and I’m passionate about helping my clients find those same great opportunities. But I also relate heavily to first-time home buyers and families that see real estate as more than just an investment – but rather a place to call home.
Within my first year at Village Properties, I was blessed to assist my incredible team (the Grubb Campbell Group) to achieve a record-setting year with over $64 million in sales. I’m grateful for how many buyers and sellers we’ve been able to help along the way. I’ve been a part of over 300 transactions with this group, helping over 250 unique clients & families achieve their real estate dreams. And to me, that’s what this is all about.
I pride myself on quick and timely responses. My friends and family will jokingly attest (much to their annoyance) that my telephone is glued to my hip for any call that relates to real estate. If we choose to work together, just know I’ll be easy to reach if you need anything
I also love coffee… and my dog Nala.
Natalie and Brian are the best, I will never use anyone else. If you want to sell or buy you will find that Natalie and Brian are both professional and just down right great people.
Hard to find service this good anymore, they are the best!Matt and Michele Genovese
Honestly, Natalie is a real professional that cares. She was smart, accurate, and calming. Though we have ample experience in Real Estate, Natalie actually taught us many new angles. She remained very positive and informative throughout the transaction. This is the 9th home we have bought/sold. In my 20+ years of Real Estate ownership, Natalie was by far the best.The Creagers
Working with Natalie and Brian was a very positive and enjoyable experience. First and foremost, they are honest, smart and genuine. Every intricate detail of our negotiations and purchasing process was handled with skill and diligence. However, we were more than just a transaction to them. They sold us on the community and took the time to introduce and welcome us to Santa Barbara. Having worked with many real estate agents, we put Natalie and Brian as two of the best.John and Amy Hummer
We have purchased a few single family homes over the last couple decades, and have worked with several realtors over this time. In particular, we have worked with four different realtors over the last few years in the Santa Barbara/Ventura County area. Grubb Campbell is my top favorite realtor in this area, hands down. Not only are they “high touch” service, but they add thoughtful and helpful input to the whole process…not just into “sales” but focus most of all on the client’s needs and add insights along the way to help get to “yes” in the whole real estate process.Kiki and David Gindler
Natalie Grubb and her team are true professionals. From start to finish every encounter with them exceeded our expectations. Natalie listened to our needs and helped us to quickly filter out those homes that would not be a good fit. She helped us to see things we could not and find some truly unique and beautiful houses to consider. When the time came to make an offer, she helped us do so a timely, efficient and thorough manner. We never once thought that buying our fist home would be easy, but Natalie Grubb made it just that. She goes beyond the call of duty, taking care of every detail and providing personal attention to her clients.Janelle and Dan Green
Sometimes a great agent makes all the difference. This was certainly the case with respect to my recent purchase of a Montecito home. Had I not been lucky enough to meet Natalie at the open house, I am fairly certain that I would not have even made an offer. However, Natalie immediately provided the level of confidence I needed with respect to both market value and her competency as an agent. The result is that I purchased a great home in a great area. Truly, I cannot recommend Natalie and her team more highly.Irene Kopel
They are absolutely wonderful. They took great care of me and my family. I had a great experience and would and do recommend them highly. We are very lucky to have them in our community.Brent and Angela Boone
My husband and I had a pretty good idea of what we wanted before we started looking for a home in Santa Barbara. Fortunately for us, Natalie came highly recommended by our son and daughter- in- law, when she helped them find their first home. Natalie’s professionalism, extensive experience, and knowledge of Santa Barbara is remarkable. She helped us find the perfect home for us, with a stunning view, and handled the transaction seamlessly. She is well respected and introduced us to many dependable and high quality service people in the community. It is a pleasure to work with Natalie and we couldn’t have had a better agent!Nancy and Barney Melekian
Natalie and Brian exceeded my expectations at every step of our transaction. I’ve worked with many real estate agents in the last 20 years and found them to be shining stars. I would call on them again without a moment of hesitation for future transactions. i felt as though they always had our best interests as a priority and in my mind that is the hallmark of a true professional.Gary & Joanie Saint Denis
My husband and I have worked with Natalie and Brian since our very first real estate transaction 16 years ago. They have advised us and handled every real estate transaction we have done in that time. Many times, after extensive research, my husband and I would decide not to pursue a property. In those cases, I know that Natalie and Brian have done so much due diligence for us, and not been paid. But like any true professional, thier focus has been on our satisfaction, and what is best for us. I know they have lost time and money on some of those deals; but they always chose to invest in our dreams, and our family. For that, I am eternally grateful. Their attention to detail and personal service has been impeccable. Their professionalism has caused a true trust to grow with us that I dare say, we have never had with any other professional in our lives.
They do what they say they are going to do, and they fight for us in every deal. We highly recommend them to any prospective homebuyer or seller.
Natalie handles herself as a real professional in every aspect of her profession. She is enthusiastic, responsive to any questions, and handles any difficulties with ease.
Natalie goes out of her way to make the selling process easy. Her sense of humor and confidence was a relief during a time when things can be quite stressful.
I would recommend her to anyone that wants a listing or selling agent who is capable, thorough, and trustworthy.William Coln and Lauren Thomas
They not only did a great job in helping us to find a property in the area, but have done an excellent job of finding renters and maintaining the property for us. They’re very knowledgeable and very nice people to work with.John and Karen Butcher
