More About Me

Energy, perseverance, and passion are Rachael Bissig’s approach to both real estate and life. Rachael provides an unforgettable experience for her clients through her keen mind for both business and people, unswerving dedication, and verve. She transforms what can be a difficult process into a fulfilling and enjoyable journey toward the dream of homeownership.



A Southern Californian native with Swiss and Australian roots, Rachael has worked professionally in the real estate industry for 22 years and brings uncommon savvy and rapid solutions to every exchange. Her comprehensive experience ranges through all phases of development, sales, and management.

Helping clients build wealth is Rachael’s priority and showing them how to use real estate as a tool is her ultimate purpose. She guides them toward properties that will build long-term equity, such as quality constructed homes, income properties, distressed properties, homes with dual living situations, and the occasional vacation rental. Rachael thoughtfully educates her clients about real estate so they can understand, for themselves, the benefits and risks of owning property. She strongly believes everyone can be a homeowner, and her clients come away not just with a home, but with an invaluable real estate savvy. With commanding business acumen, a strong background in technology, stellar customer service, and tenacious negotiation skills, Rachael does the heavy lifiting for her clients, making transactions effortless. She proactively helps attain her clients' goals, is solution-focused in the face of complex issues, and always seeks win-win situations.



Rachael’s hobbies include traveling—meeting folks from various cultures, customs, and traditions (and sampling local cuisine). She is an accomplished amateur chef, an organic gardener, and a lifetime athlete. Rachael can be found tackling the challenges of fitness boot camps, running, hot yoga, surfing, and hip-hop dancing. She chronicles her fun-filled adventures on her lifestyle blog —www.annexxonline.com. Here you can find the ins and outs of real estate, lifestyle, and finding a home.

She lives in both, Sydney, Australia and Santa Barbara with kids Sophia, Claire, Cameron and Jason and Jericho - the cats. However, Jason the gray tabby and Jericho don't come for the ride to Sydney. 


Rachael’s warmth and vivacity create a sense of home wherever she goes. She is dedicated to finding her clients the perfect property and guiding them through the complex process of buying and selling in the competitive Santa Barbara market - most of all, she makes it fun!
