  • Kerry Mormann


    Ranch & Land Division

    Kerry’s 40-year real estate career started as an apprentice appraiser where he learned the analytical side of the real estate business. After selling a few houses, he sold a 400 acre ranch in the pristine Hollister Ranch on the Gaviota Coast. Kerry’s ranch buyer was so impressed with Kerry’s skills and knowledge he asked Kerry to represent him in purchasing three adjacent ranches totaling over 2000 acres. These were highly complex transactions with numerous title problems. Kerry found he enjoyed the challenges of researching all of the technicalities involved and decided to specialize in ranch, land and lifestyle properties. Kerry’s passion has been in selling large ranches ever since those early days. Over nearly 4 decades as an independent broker, Kerry has sold some of the largest properties in the tri-counties and has an impressive client base of major corporations such as Ticor Title Insurance, Wells Fargo Bank, Bank of Montecito, Bank of America, City Commerce Bank, Central Coast Production Credit, The Resolution Trust Corporation, Arco, Chevron, Texaco, numerous Hollywood celebrities such as Fess Parker and wealthy individuals seeking privacy and discerning lifestyle choice. Kerry is professional, discrete and dedicated to his clients. When making a decision to join a major real estate company, Kerry was offered many opportunities. Deciding finally to join Berkshire Hathaway and direct a new division called the ‘Ranch and Lifestyle’ division, Kerry was honored to join forces with the power behind the success of the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties family. Kerry is a member of :
