Clients are saying:
"From end to end, Barb has been responsive, reliable and knowledgeable. We surely put her to the test with a prolonged property search through Lincoln Park, Lakeview and further afield but Barb was persistent and we managed to land our first home. As first time buyers, we greatly appreciated her patience and willingness to guide us step by step through the process, silly questions and all. Even after a couple of years in our home, Barb is always on hand for questions, advice and support - priceless to those of us never having owned a property in Chicago as it's difficult to know who to contact when things go wrong. We look forward to her help as we start thinking about the next step on the property ladder."
"As first time home buyers, we wanted someone who really knew their stuff; that's Barb. She stopped at nothing to match us to our perfect new home. She works at a fast pace but also takes the time to get to know her clients along the way. Our 5 year old became fond of her and still asks if we can have Barb over for dinner! Through each step of the way, we communicated constantly and she was so patient with all of our questions. We saw homes right away because she was so on top of scheduling and would even get us in to see a place at the last minute. The home we bought was on the market for less than 24 hours and she made it possible for us to see it and arranged for us to make an offer electronically that night. She has a knack for being exactly the kind of person you need in any situation. She is really in your corner throughout the whole process and beyond. I would 100% recommend Barb to any potential homebuyer. Her warm smile, fun personality and go-getter work ethic made this very stressful process, quite enjoyable."
"Barb was extraordinary! I'm grateful to have had a realtor who handled so many facets of my house sale. I had to be out of town the majority of the time during the preparation, listing and sale of my home. Barb met contractors, helped ensure proper repairs were made, helped clean and stage my condo, and dealt with the condo association. I got a fair price and was more than satisfied the whole way through. If you need a great Chicago real estate agent, Barb is the one you want!"
"Barb knows everything about Chicago real estate and she listened very well to us about what we wanted and where we'd be happy. Four years and counting, we still love our place and would use Barb again in a heartbeat."
"I am delighted to reply to this survey with a glowing recommendation for Barb Head. She knows the territory and the business of selling property in the north side Chicago neighborhoods. She takes the time to listen to her clients needs and act on them."
