Rob Egenolf has done real estate work for the Hutton Parker Foundation over the last decade.  I have found him and his firm to be extremely professional, their fee structure very fair and responds quickly to any issues that come up.  I strongly recommend Rob and his firm. 

Tom Parker, President, Hutton Parker Foundation

I have worked with The Egenolf Group partners for decades and can recommend the firm without hesitation. More than once, Rob has gone the extra mile and was always there for me above and beyond our client/lawyer relationship. Rob has always been extremely thorough in his communications and his recommendations are always on the mark, without fail.

I have worked with Dorothea Amezaga for decades for commercial leasing and other real estate related transactions, including quite complex leasing matters with multiple moving pieces. Her communication is always stellar as she handles transactions efficiently and effectively using a pragmatic approach to avoid overcomplicating any issues at hand. I highly recommend her and the firm.

In the forty years that I have known Rob Egenolf I have found him to be intelligent, tenacious, responsive, experienced and dedicated to the interests of his clients. He is involved in our community as a volunteer and pro bono consultant. Rob, his wife Judy and their businesses are generous and empathetic philanthropists. We are all fortunate to have the Egenolfs in Santa Barbara.
