Sold a Condo home in 2014 in Brookfield, CT.

This recommendation is written with pleasure and gratitude. We were familiar with many realtors in our our area, but when it came time to put our home up for sale in a very difficult market we had no doubt that Barbara was the best choice. Barbara exudes the knowledge that is so pertinent in the realm of real estate. She is a hard worker who maintains a strong pulse on market trends and demands. We truly appreciated working with a person of integrity, experience and wisdom. Valerie and Paul Mucci  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $925K in New Fairfield, CT.

Excellent realtor. Was diligent in her addressing potential buyers as to the benefits of our home and the locality. Her office resolved expeditiously local required township permits and ordinances that I as the owner failed to comply with. Was responsive to my calls and negotiated the sale of our home to our complete satisfaction.
