Who We Are
Zabilla Group is a distinguished Real Estate Team representing Buyers and Sellers of fine properties in Ojai, Ventura, Oxnard Beaches and Santa Barbara. We understand that selling or buying a home is big business, but also extremely personal; we meet our Clients at that intersection.
Founder, Rosalie Zabilla, believes excellent Representation combines both head and heart. “Having a thorough command of market forces is essential but so is the ability to listen carefully, ask intuitive questions and stay steady for our Clients no matter what is happening,” she says. “I look for Agents who demonstrate this skill set.”
In addition to great Agents, Zabilla Group also has a dedicated Marketing Manager, Thea Wilcox, who creates tailored marketing campaigns for each of our Listings, ensuring a global reach via sophisticated digital campaigns, beautiful print photography and SEO optimization.
Zabilla Group looks forward to partnering with you to realize your real estate goals.
With almost 20 years’ experience representing clients throughout Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, Rosalie has worked with Buyers and Sellers at every level of real estate. Because of years serving as Chair of the Ojai Planning Commission and President of the Ojai Board of Realtors, Rosalie has an unparalleled breadth of knowledge that benefits her clients at the highest level. She is an extremely adept problem solver and master negotiator, a “closer” with exceptional communication skills. Before becoming an agent, Rosalie worked in film as a camera assistant on commercials and major studio pictures such as Grumpy Old Men. She moved from Santa Barbara to Ojai in 2003 and happily raised a wonderful daughter while building a thriving career in real estate. Rosalie has a passion for the human potential movement and is a keenly committed member of the Lake Casitas Rowing Club.
Annie’s clients keep on coming for her hustle, initiative, commitment to ethics and honest guidance in real estate. With family spread out across Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, Annie is well-versed in the regional markets and ready to convince you that Central Coast living is indeed superior! Prior to her work as a Realtor, Annie built her reputation as an entrepreneurial self-starter. From Rhode Island to Patagonia, Annie ran successful political campaigns to conserve waterways and elect pro-environment leaders. She then co-founded a water-treatment technology firm before launching her own boutique production company specializing in environmental films. Annie lives in Ojai with her husband Danny, a physician at the Ventura County Hospital, and their two small children. Annie loves live music, even livelier political debate, and interior design.
