The opportunity to have worked for so many Ranch owners over the years has given me the ability to get to know them and their parcels in a way that is very different than just processing a real estate transaction.”-Greg Alker
In 2013 Greg moved from Kerry Mormann and Associates and hung his license under Nathan’s brokers license to form Hollister Ranch Coastal Properties (HRCP). Nathan obtained his broker's license after securing a degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Real Estate Financing from San Diego State University.
Over the past nine years, Greg and Nate have been apart of many transactions representing both buyers and sellers. In 2019 HRCP successfully closed an array of transactions including representing the buyer during the sale of HR121, a full front-row parcel. In 2020 HRCP went on to represent buyers in many transactions including main residence interests on parcels 59 and 60. As 2021 gets underway, HRCP is continuing its efforts and has been involved in 7 transactions in just the first quarter.
Greg, the older of the duo, moved to the Ranch in 1972 where he had the opportunity to work for the first HR owners, Penny Brody (Parcel 31/ Rancho San Augustine) and James Arness who had just completed and nearly completed construction on their respective homes. From that time, Greg has accumulated almost 50 years of “Ranch life experience” and worked in varying construction capacities on 70 parcels, “The opportunity to have worked for so many Ranch owners over the years has given me the ability to get to know them and their parcels in a way that is very different than just processing a real estate transaction.”
In addition to having worked on the Ranch for all those years, Greg and his wife Ruth raised three boys here who are all married and have children of their own, “It has been an amazing journey to have watched the boys grow up here and all settle in Santa Barbara. To see the grandchildren come and experience the Ranch just as the boys did is a treasure we have been blessed to be able to pass on.”
With a plethora of living and professional experiences on the Hollister Ranch, Greg has much to offer both the curious buyer and the eager seller.
Nathan (the oldest) moved to San Diego and attended San Diego State University where he graduated with a degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Real Estate Financing. After a couple of years of traveling, he decided to begin a teaching career, which he currently maintains at Providence School as a 7/8 Science teacher. Nathan married his wife Lindsay in 2009 on parcel 19 and now has three beautiful children, Chase (7), Brynn (5), and Londyn (2). “It has truly been a gift to be able to enjoy and experience the richness of the Ranch and all that it has to offer from the ocean to the mountains for all these years. It is something that I am passionate about sharing with my children. “
Nathan lives in Goleta and enjoys surfing, skateboarding, and raising his young family.
As the success of HRCP has continued into the new year, Nathan has decided pursue a full time position helping buyers and sellers connect on the Hollister Ranch in 2021.
