Thereafter, Barbara joined Rent Smart Chicago/Smart Property as a leasing agent. She built a large inventory of rentals, while efficiently locating and leasing apartments for tenants based on their specific needs and standards.

Barbara maintains a close relationship with the landlords she encounters and understands the necessity of pre-qualifying and securing the right tenant to fill vacant properties. She is always up to date on the current rental market's pricing and trends.

Barbara's main specialty is full service Residential Real Estate. As a full-time Real Estate Broker. Coming from a background of management and leasing, she brings a sharp perspective to the table for developers and investors that are looking to purchase anything from a small two flat to a large mixed-use building.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Edgewater Beach, Chicago, IL.

Meeting Barbara was like winning the trifecta. One, she is a wealth of information about the whole process of buying and selling. Two, she has amazing energy. Three, she exudes passion for her work and clients. She has a whatever it takes to get it done attitude. In addition to that, she pays attention to detail. All together knowledge, ability, and desire to help makes for a smooth and pleasurable experience.  More Less

Bought a home in 2014.

Barbara helped me bought a condo around South Loop. She's very nice that she didn't push you. Barbara tries to meet your home searching goals every time, even when you changed your goal, she's very patient. She helped to coordinate different parties involving in the transaction, and always reminds me when to do what. In general Barbara is an excellent realtor.  More Less
