The saying goes "there is more to being an exceptional real estate agent than what meets the eye." But in the case of Barbara Dunlap it is precisely her fine-tuned sense of "what meets the eye" that elevates her in the eyes of sellers and buyers.
You can't buy a sense of style. It comes as a natural gift and is honed through learning and experience. With the formal study of literature, cinema, creative writing, marketing, and sales; Barbara developed both an acute sense of style and the necessary skills to promote it.
Barbara understands which property features will excite buyers, and she works with her sellers to accentuate those features for maximum appeal. Applying her marketing talents and creative instincts, she can tease out emotional appeal from any property.
For sellers this means higher sale prices and faster sales in today's challenging market. Putting her talents to work for sellers, Barbara has set benchmark prices in Cole Valley, Haight, Ashbury Heights, Eureka Heights and Pacific Heights.
For buyers she provides invaluable insight into a property's positive and negative aspects. She can see the potential or weakness of a property that others might overlook.
Most important to both buyers and sellers is Barbara's dedication and service, her attention to detail, and her outstanding negotiating skills.
Prior to her career in real estate Barbara was Vice President of Marketing and Creative Director for the original Victoria's Secret. At the San Francisco startup company she was in charge of building and positioning Victoria's Secret's powerful brand through her innovative advertising, PR, and strategic marketing campaigns.
