Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Camp Meeker, CA.

First let me say we love Barbara Ellis and were really glad to have her on our team. My husband and I were first time home buyers and Barbara was there with us every step of the way. We love our new home; it's the perfect fit for us. Barbara's ability to multitask and handle any and all issues that came up seamlessly was really impressive. We were nervous so we called or emailed often and she was always there for us and guided us through all of the necessary steps to buy our first home. I'm sure she had other clients but she gave us the kind of one on one attention that made us feel like we were the only clients she had. I would highly recommend Barbara to anyone looking to buy a home (and have!) as she is knowledgeable about the home buying process, a really good negotiator and from my experience, you never have to worry about Barbara doing her job; she does it all so you don't have to.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.275M in Glen Ellen, CA.

We are delighted to recommend Barbara. In addition to those attributes listed above... Barbara is very patient. She helped us stay focused during a slow market when our housing choices were very slim. And Barbara has a great network of professionals that made the buying process as smooth as possible.

Barbara was always ready to show me a house and never wasted my time showing me what I did not want! She was available by telephone, text and email which was a bonus!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Guerneville, CA.

Barbara went above and beyond what any other agent would have done. She stuck with me through nearly a year of showings and two failed escrows. I had left the area, so whenever anyone needed access it fell to Barbara to meet workers at the house and supervise work. She never once complained. In the end she found a very good buyer, and I am grateful for everything she did to get the property sold. I would recommend Barbara to anyone buying or selling property. She has the highest professional standards and excellent knowledge about all aspects of real estate, and she is very easy to talk to. She really likes people and always returned my calls promptly and was always thinking 3 steps ahead.

Bought a home in 2014.

My husband and I recently moved from Ireland and decided to look in the Guerneville area for an investment property. On the recommendation of a friend we called Barbara, who found us the perfect house and walked us through the system from placing an offer to completion in just 25 days. We knew nothing about buying a house in the US, arranging finance etc and Barbara did absolutely everything. We could not have asked for better and I know if ever we are looking for a realtor in the area again, Barbara will be the first one we call. Barbara thank you so very much for your patience, guidance and your extensive expertise and knowledge. We could not be happier.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Rohnert Park, CA.

The Seller was getting cold feet...the deal was going to fall through. Barbara's expertise saved the deal, and today I live in my beautiful Condo in Rohnert Park. Barbara is so professional and easy to work with. Barbara really knows her stuff, and always kept my best interest at heart. I cannot recommend her enough!

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Santa Rosa, CA.

My husband and I have both been retired and living on a fixed income since 2006. And like most homeowners we took a major financial hit when the housing market collapsed in 2008 - and our investment portfolio along with it. It appeared that the retirement plan we'd each worked forty years to achieve was gone. Luckily time brings change - and 2013 appears to hearld potential for a brighter economic future. But in our situation, risk aversion is greater than ever.

For us, reinvesting in the stock market was out of the question. Limited capital, too short a horizon, too much risk and volitility that would lead to sleepless nights. But investment in real estate for rental purposes might work. Thank goodness we found Barbara Ellis.

Our introductory meeting occurred in March 2013. We were immediatly impressed with her decade-plus knowledge of the local real estate market, her listening skills, ability to hone-in on details and ask focused questions - and her professionalism. Most importantly, Barbara is extremely personable and a pleasure to work with.

As we began viewing potential properties Barbara was consistently prepared with facts, figures and important historical data. She also has excellent relationships with her fellow agents and financial representatives - which often provided us an edge as the housing market heated-up. And when "the deal" didn't work out, Barbara always kept our resolve intact by saying "the right one's out there and I'll find it for you". And that she did.

Throughout the closing process she worked diligently for us - keeping us thorougly apprised of progress and always made herself available to respond to our questions and concerns. In the end, we're confident we purchased the right property at the right price. And that our original goals for acquiring it will be met. We would highly recommend Barbara to our family and friends without hesitation.
