Nanette, a former educator, entered real estate initially as a web site consultant, and is now also a licensed salesperson. She attended UCSB where she received a B.A. in History, and graduate school at Pepperdine University, where she earned a M.S. in Educational Computing. Nanette has served on volunteer parent committees at each of her children’s schools – from the Technology Committee at Montecito Union School to the Parent Leadership Council at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.
Bill and Nanette were drawn to Montecito because of its dramatic natural beauty and mild climate. A love of tennis, golf and the beaches inspired them to first purchase a getaway home while they were living in Pacific Palisades. This soon evolved into a larger family home in Montecito, where their children attended outstanding public and private schools in the Montecito and Santa Barbara areas, including Montecito Union School, Marymount School, Dos Pueblos High School, and Santa Barbara High School. Today, Bill and Nanette are transitioning to an empty nest and living in Birnam Wood, the coveted golf community in Montecito. The Vaughan’s understand the subtleties and amenities of the different neighborhoods in Montecito and will put their local knowledge to work for you.
