Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $825K in Berkeley Heights, NJ.
I have written very few reviews, but feel obligated to share my experience of working with Barbara for all to know. After spending the better half of two years determining where in NJ to move our family from Westchester when the time arrived, we zeroed in on Berkeley Heights. We did A LOT of research online to find the best mix of housing, schools, taxes, value, sense of community, commute to NYC - the whole 9 yards to come to this decision. Naturally, we sought online reviews to find our resident expert broker - someone who lives in the community and has a great deal of local knowledge. I can't express how fortunate we were to find Barbara.
It's been about 4 months since I initially called Barbara one evening with a list of 5 properties that we were interested in seeing (the following day nonetheless), but I feel that I have known her my whole life. That call easily lasted a half hour as she took the time to listen to our wants, needs, ask about the things we never thought about, and chat about life in general - just as an old friend would. Aside from being very personable, her understanding of the market conditions and home values is spot on. Of all the homes we viewed that weekend, she correctly called what the likely contract price would be spot on for 4 out of the 5 homes. The one she had wrong was the one we bought! She negotiated hard on our behalf and was able to seal the deal at a favorable price - not to mention at 10:30pm, way outside of normal business hours, and in the middle of her evening out at a nice restaurant. Barbara works tirelessly to ensure the highest quality of service for her clients, and it is self evident.
Phone calls, emails, or text message your preferred communication channel? No problem... they're all her's too. Think you need to follow up about the status of negotiation, or contract - don't bother - she's a step ahead of you and the answer is already in you inbox. Very much on top of her game.
I can say without question that I am grateful to have worked with Barbara and the RE/MAX Integrity Advantage team. I am even more so to now have her as a friend and neighbor. Thank you Barbara for making my family's dream come true.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $675K in New Providence, NJ.
Barbara showed us a couple of houses which we requested....and we ended up buying one of them. Things moved quickly and we were able to close without having to get into an extensive search across towns or types of houses. She is very professional and prompt and all the paperwork for done without a hitch. We were able to negotiate with the seller and agree on the terms within a week, so credit is due to Barbara for guiding us through that process...especially since we feel we paid a fair price. She helped facilitate a meeting with the seller based on our request and got everything else that she needed to do done without us having to follow up. No complaints whatsoever. As a first time buyer, there wee times when I thought I need a bit more hand holding but in retrospect, I think the level of engagement was just about right.
Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Scotch Plains, NJ.
Barbara was the first person I went to when I thought if buying my first home. So I contacted her and she asked me to come by and get a feel for what I was looking for. The same day she had pages of listing ready to go and also every new listing was being forwarded. She took me out on numerous trips all over the area looking and helping me. I finally found a place in scotch plains I've been here for a few months and can't thank her enough. She texts with updated and emails so promptly it's very nice having that connection with someone when making such a big purchase. I wouldn't recommend anyone else. Within 3 weeks I found a place and had put an offer it she made the whole process go smoothly and stress free.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Berkeley Heights, NJ.
Very caring professional. She made the entire process of selling my mother's house stress free. My brother and mother had a stoke in 2013. They were moved to the Jersey Shore area, to be closer to me. Barbara Mulcahy, stepped right in and handled everything for me. She even drove to my house, approximately ninety miles, for discussions and signings. A woman of integrity!
Barbara was my listing agent for the sale of my home and I couldn't have been happier with the experience. I've dealt with several realtors over the years and have to say she was the most competent and a pleasure to work with. Barbara proved to be very knowledgeable about the area and current real estate market in general. She was very responsive and always made herself available when needed. Using her knowledge of current market trends and negotiations skills, I know I received the best possible price for my home. I would not hesitate to recommend Barbara as an agent.
Barbara Mulcahy is among the best in the business - and for good reason. She is knowledgeable, capable, and she's a dynamite realtor. My husband and I relied on Barbara through the sale and purchase of our first home. . .and then our second. As first-time home buyers, she took the time to explain the intricacies of the process and empowered us to make informed decisions. As second-time buyers, Barb helped us find a house to accommodate our growing family, changing needs, AND our changing budget. (In that time, she also sold our house - for more than we paid - in a market that was less than booming.) Despite our repeated phone calls and e-mails with questions and ever-growing lists of homes we hoped to see, she was always patient, kind, and quick to respond. And when we did find the house of our dreams, she was our biggest advocate during an extremely trying closing. It was never too early, too late, or too trivial; Barb was in our corner and two steps ahead.
We have recommended Barbara Mulcahy and RE/MAX Integrity Advantage to our friends - without reserve. We not only trust Barbara and RE/MAX with our business, but our family and friends as well.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $700K in Berkeley Heights, NJ.
We had a great experience from beginning to end with Mary Ann, She also helped supply great references for assisting us to get extra work done on the house to prepare it for selling. We needed a quick closing on the home and she found buyers who were willing to work with that. When we met Mary Ann, we found a new friend. She would definitely be someone I would recommend to sell my home in the future!
Barbara is amazing to work with, she knew our tastes and helped guide our search for a new home. On top of that she handled the sale of our condo and even in the downturn was able to find a buyer quickly. Barbara is not a typical real estate sales person, she cares about you.
