About Jeff

Kruther's Home in Hollister Ranch

Jeff Kruthers first visited Hollister Ranch in 1962 as a guest of the Hollister family who owned the entire 15,000+ acre ranch at the time. Jeff introduced his wife-to-be Wendie to the Ranch in 1967, and they were married the following year. Jeff and Wendie purchased Parcel 3 in 1972; the seventh parcel sold by the developer. The following year, Jeff made his first Hollister Ranch sale.

Becoming the Hollister Ranch Broker, Jeff established Hollister Ranch Realty in 1981 specializing in property sales at Hollister Ranch. Since that time he and Wendie have been involved in at least one transaction involving over 100 separate Hollister Ranch parcels. In fact, Hollister Ranch Realty has completed more Hollister Ranch transactions than any other real estate company.

For over a decade Wendie has been the coordinator of the Hollister Ranch Conservancy’s popular and successful "Tidepool School" program. This program has provided Santa Barbara County students a "living classroom" to study and observe the thriving ecosystems found in the intertidal zones at Hollister Ranch. At one time these tidepool environments existed all along the coast of Southern California, but they have become degraded or eliminated as human population soared. It is hoped that the students who observe a healthy shoreline will grow up to encourage - and participate in - the restoration of the habitat for these tidepool critters.

For several years Wendie was a member of the Hollister Ranch (Cattle) Cooperative board of directors.

Jeff also serves as a Trustee for the Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital (GVCH) Foundation. Recently rebuilt as a 21st century, full-service health facility, GVCH is the nearest hospital to Hollister Ranch.
