Mark Lomas is a top producing Realtor in Santa Barbara, California with over 20 years experience helping buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals.  Mark believes you should, “Love Where You Live” and Santa Barbara has more than met that objective for Mark and his wife Kirsten.

Mark’s focus in real estate is on maximizing your results for a truly rewarding experience, and his pledge is excellent communications at every step in the process.


     Mark was born in Stamford, Connecticut and grew up in neighboring Pound Ridge, New York. Mark has three older brothers, and a younger sister.   In 1970 Mark led Fox Lane High School in Bedord, New York to the State Championship.  At 6’4″ Mark was the team’s leading scorer, and still holds his High School’s rebounding record. Mark attended Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, and Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri.  Mark moved to Marin County in 1973 and played semi-professional basketball for a couple of summers.  In 1983 Mark went to work for a large advertising agency in San Francisco as an idea and design layout person, illustrator, and copy writer.  In 1985 began his real estate career, and continues to work on behalf of sellers, and buyers throughout the southern Santa Barbara region.

Mark’s father was a creative executive with  the J. Walter Thompson advertising agency in New York City, and in 1976 before retiring created for the “Reach Out and Touch Someone” ad campaign for AT&T. Mark’s father,  Stanley Lomas was honored by the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. when they created an exhit for his many contributions to early television advertising.

While working during the day at an ad agency in San Francisco, Mark began entertaining the idea of performing stand up comedy. Mark started taking acting classes at night, and working at the Punchline in San Francisco as a bartender ( a front row seat to the best San Francisco comics could offer).  In 1984 and 1985 Mark began performing in San Francisco, Marin County, and Sonoma County.   Mark produced Comedy Shows weekly in Marin County at “Uncle Charlie’s” (where Huey Lewis  and the News got their start), and a friend of his that was an entertainment attorney started booking Mark before some relatively big rock and roll acts including Marty Balin from the  Jefferson Airplane/Starship, and a collective group of members from the Grateful Dead (Robert Hunter), Santana (rhythm guitarist/not Santana himself), New Riders of the Purple Sage (Marmaduke), Papa John Creach (violinist/electric), and Joey Covington (drummer Hot Tuna and Jefferson Starship) that called themselves the California All Stars.  It was fun while it lasted. In 1985 Mark got his real estate license, and has never looked back (except for the occasional biographical blurbs like this).

In 2002 Mark was offered the opportunity to MC the  The Tiburon International Film Festival and continued to MC this event up until moving to Santa Barbara .  Although Mark and his wife Kirsten loved living in Marin County their dream was to live in Santa Barbara, where Mark and Kirsten continue to “Celebrate the Santa Barbara Lifestyle!”
