Clients are saying:

"Barbara is a delightful savvy broker who listened to our needs, knows the market place and, in turn, advised us regarding improvements needed and the right price points to help us sell our home. She worked diligently from day one and was instrumental assisting our transaction close when issues arose from the buyers end. She was always available and responsive to our calls. It made the process easy and successful. Can't recommend her enough"
