Elise Kahn

Contact Agent

Village Properties

A lifelong Southern California local, Elise is a self-described “Santa Barbara lifestyle enthusiast.” A second-generation Realtor® who grew up observing her father’s thriving real estate career, she learned early on the importance of hard work, ethics, and honesty. Additionally, having honed her skills mentoring under a Top Producing residential agent with over fifteen successful years in the industry, Elise assisted with transaction coordinating for a number of local agents before getting licensed.

Bolstered by a Business, Marketing, and Economics degree from Moorpark College and a Bachelor’s in Communication from the University of California, Santa Barbara, Elise has built a strong foundation across multiple disciplines. Blending a rich educational background with tenure in customer service at a 5-star, world-renowned hospitality company, she takes pride in quality customer service. Fresh, relevant, with a millennial edge, Elise is tech-savvy and strategic in her marketing plans. She’s passionate about staying up-to-date and routinely seeks out educational lectures, events, podcasts, and industry-focused articles. Operating with a passion for properties, consummate client care, and a love for the local lifestyle, she’s found a special niche in Santa Barbara real estate.

Instilled with an abundant appreciation for our Mediterranean climate and eternally sunny skies, Elise embodies the quintessential Santa Barbara state of mind. Enjoying an active lifestyle with a three-year-old son, Beau, she adores fresh California fare, Funk Zone wine tasting, farmer’s market meanderings, and lazy afternoons at Butterfly Beach. When she’s not holding open houses, orchestrating stagers, writing contracts, previewing property, or attending local seminars, you’ll find her at a hot new restaurant, attending live music events, art shows, and festivals. Elise knows better than anyone else the privilege of calling this coastal haven home, and she hopes to help others attain the same slice of magic.
