About Neill Zimmerman
Born and raised in Santa Maria, California, Neill C. Zimmerman has spent most of his life in Santa Barbara County. He has studied Business, Economics, History, Accounting, and Real Estate. For 5 years, Neill worked in real estate marketing and financing in Santa Maria before temporarily moving to Los Angeles to work in property management.

It was in his brief time in Los Angeles that he met his wife Nicole. The two have happily settled in idyllic Solvang to start a family and they are very excited to welcome their first baby in 2015. They enjoy their evening walks together with their rescued shih-tzu, “Little.”

Work Background
While in Los Angeles, Neill efficiently managed multi-family apartment buildings by negotiating capital improvement contracts, maintenance contracts, and lease agreements, resulting in an increase of cash flows and property value. Neill has worked with many different personalities, mitigating difficult situations.


One of his favorite types of projects to undertake is the refurbishment of dilapidated homes, as well as from-the-ground-up construction. He is currently a CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment Member) candidate and was recently awarded the prestigious CCIM Carmela Ma Endowment. Neill believes that education is a lifelong responsibility and enjoys researching a variety of topics. He takes great pleasure from spending time in nature, golfing, and thrives around people - whether they be family, old friends, or new.

Neill is proud to sit on the Council and looks forward to serving the City of Solvang.
