About Janine Huarte
Hello, I’m Janine Huarte, a Santa Barbara and Montecito Realtor. I’m a Southern California native, went to school in the Napa Valley and attended college at Westmont here in Santa Barbara. After five weeks of travel throughout Europe where I studied art, history, culture and architecture – I knew Santa Barbara would become my permanent home.
Santa Barbara’s natural beauty, arts and culture, unique architecture, and thriving community makes it special place to work and live, and I love helping my clients call Santa Barbara home.
I joined Sotheby’s, a well-respected brokerage with a reputation for being extremely successful while remaining fastidiously ethical. In my first year I was coined “Rookie of the Year” by my colleagues having closed $5.4M in sales. I’ve also joined the Education Committee at the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors.
My goal is to share professional, results-oriented service in representing your real estate needs. My style is highly collaborative, and I feel I’ve succeeded when exceeding your expectations.
As a long-time resident and local mom with a large network of friends and family, I have deep knowledge of the area, market trends and everything important to families. Ask me about schools, churches, business, shopping, and lifestyle – you’ll get all the answers right here!
In my free time, you’ll find me wine tasting with family and friends, sampling local restaurants (I’m a self-proclaimed foodie), enjoying the beach or hiking our trails. One thing is certain about Santa Barbara – there is always something for everyone to enjoy.

“We recently worked with Janine to purchase a new luxury home and are working together now to sell our old house. In both transactions we have found Janine to be not only pleasant, professional, knowledgeable, thoughtful, and kind; but in addition she has been a strong advocate for us to ensure we received a great product at a great price during our purchase and a fair value based on market conditions for our sale.”

“Referred by someone I’d known most of my life, I met Bill & Rose Reed in 2002 when we needed a realtor to sell my Mother’s home in Montecito. They become our “realtors for life” as Bill put it. My sisters and I have asked him to help with our real estate needs ever since. Since Rose departed to a better place early this year, Bill has been searching for the right person with whom to join forces in a new company. He has found her in Janine Huarte. It is a perfect match of wisdom and experience with youthful energy and spirit. They are an amazingly seamless duo who have represented me in buying two different properties. Janine brings enthusiasm, a quick mind and the new tools of the trade while Bill’s calm wisdom, experience and hard-earned knowledge provides the foundation and skill. The result is a unit that inspires full confidence, a perfect match of talent, ability and personality. I strongly recommend Huarte Reed as the perfect team to assist you with buying or selling.”
“Janine located a home for my daughter and myself nine months ago. Within 24 hours a home was found, and our offer was accepted. We appreciate Janine’s hard effort and due diligence in making this a wonderful reality for our family.”
