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 in Dearborn Park, Chicago, IL 60605.

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
