Meet Nora Davis

Nora Davis has been a real estate agent for more than 20 years and has lived in the Ojai Valley her entire life. Growing up in a family where her mother was also a real estate agent and owning rental properties was the family business, it was only natural that Nora would choose to continue this family tradition of helping people find their dream homes and investing in rental properties throughout the Ojai Valley and Ventura County.

This is where she met her husband of 40-plus years, Randy Davis, whom she has known since she was 5 years old, and where she raised her two children. Her son, Cody, now has two daughters of his own, assists her with her rental properties and works with his dad at the family-owned business, R. Davis Construction. Her daughter, Aimee Jo, is now a writer and also continues to work with the family business doing the marketing, website and real estate writing for The Davis Group.  

Real estate and construction run deep in the family, but other factors have also influenced Nora's career as a real estate agent. One recurring theme has always been horses, which Nora and Randy have always loved and owned. Additionally, with a daughter who showed and trained horses for more than a decade, a son who was more inclined to team roping, and a brother who is an internationally known horse trainer and holds multiple national and world titles, it is no surprise that Nora specializes in horse property, ranches, farms and land. Of course, she assists her clients in selling and buying all types of properties, but helping her clients find the perfect horse property or ranch in the Ojai Valley, Ventura County and Santa Barbara areas is the focus for which she is generally best known.

Nora began her career with Coldwell Banker Property Shoppe and continues to enjoy being part of the Coldwell Banker team. Because Coldwell Banker is the largest real estate office in the Ojai Valley, this also allows for access to a well-established network and a wide array of resources that assist Nora in providing impeccable service to her clients. Her attention to detail, dedication to meeting her clients' needs before and after their transactions, and ability to serve both seasoned real estate investors and first-time buyers are just a few of the reasons she is able to establish long-term relationships with many of her clients and continue to assist them in buying and selling homes throughout the years.

Some of Nora's recent awards and recognitions include:

  • 2010-2013 – Top Sales Associate, International President's Elite, Coldwell Banker Property Shoppe (also awarded in 1995, 1997, 2002, 2003, 2005)
