“Barb helped me to complete a very tricky short sale. She also helped me find a great home. She worked with me over a period of several years and personal financial issues to help me find the house of my dreams. Barb is very knowledgeable in all aspects of buying and selling. She is very patient and helped me adapt to every situation. She has the fore site and skill to navigate through a very tough housing market and present the best offer. She kept us within our budget and we were still able to meet all the criteria we wanted in a new home. I would highly recommend her and use her again! ”

Barb sold my house in less than a week! With Barb as agent (though she is, of course, a broker too), I bought a foreclosed townhouse that needed a lot of work. Even though the work was done AFTER the sale (i.e. after Barb received her commission), she continued to see me through the refurbishment and was there for all …my concerns, even going to the townhouse several times during the refurb. She also helped me pick out new things for the refurb. She went far beyond what a realtor normally does and I totally recommend her for all your real estate transactions. Disclaimer: I do not work for Barb, I am not related to Barb, we are both straight, and I received no remuneration for this recommendation!

Barb is wonderful! As first time homebuyer’s, my wife and I relied heavily on Barb’s knowledge and local expertise. She was very attentive and patient with our questions and was able to secure additional information and assistance we requested. She was very helpful with our due diligence providing additional access to the property, organizing home inspections and coordinating with the selling agent. She is organized, creative and very friendly. We would definitely work with Barb in the future should our home needs change. I heartily recommended her to anyone who finds themselves in the market.…
