Founder Luke Ebbin’s interest in real estate began while working in the music business and renovating properties as a secondary creative outlet in Los Angeles and Montecito, CA. Friends and colleagues began turning to him to represent them in their real estate transactions after seeing the success of his projects. With a rapidly growing business, the former five-time Grammy-nominated record producer and songwriter made the decision to devote himself to real estate full-time. Since then, Luke has represented some of the finest estates in Montecito and Santa Barbara and has been the number one Compass agent on the entire Central Coast of California with sales exceeding $450M since mid-2020. Additionally, Luke has the distinction of representing the highest-priced sale in both Montecito and Ojai history.

In 2019, Luke Ebbin formed The Ebbin Group with the singular mission of elevating the standards of real estate branding, marketing, sales, and concierge service to deliver exceptional results to ultra-high-net-worth individuals with complete discretion.
