Specialization
I specialize in representing my customers in the purchases and sales of residential, land, and income-producing properties in northeast Florida. I keep current of transactions in these areas, keeping my eyes open for great investment opportunities, especially waterfront---oceanfront, riverfront, and the Intracoastal(ICW).

Personal
I'm a Florida native, but have lived in many places including Germany, New York City, Atlanta, Charlotte, Maryland and the D.C. area before coming home to the land I love. As an oceanfront homeowner, I understand and appreciate the joys and responsibilities of living on the ocean. I was graduated with highest honor from Georgia Tech with a degree in Industrial Engineering. I have a technology background (15 years with IBM) and was a financial consultant with Merrill Lynch. I understand investments, 1031 exchanges, and using self-directed IRAs to invest in real estate. My hobbies include enjoying the beach with my family and friends, traveling, and being an active volunteer in the community.

Ratings & Reviews

My wife and I were looking for a place at the beach in St. Augustine FL. Preferably in the Vilano Beach area. Barbara came highly recommended by several of our friends in the area. Barbara got to know us quickly and what we liked. We had been looking at older condos in the area but she heard of a new construction house going back on the market and got us to see it. We loved the place and placed an offer within days. She worked tirelessly with the builder, title company and closing office to ensure a very smooth and quick closing and that we got what we wanted. We have been in the house now for 5 months and absolutely love the decision. Without Barbara's specific knowledge of the area and the process we couldn't have done this.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $425K in Saint Augustine, FL.

Barbara must be the most patient individual I've ever met. My wife and I were difficult to say the least, but Barbara suffered through our indecision like a trooper and got our house marketed, sold and closed in very short order. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Barbara as your "go to" real estate agent/broker! She is top notch!  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.05M in St Augustine, FL.

Barbara was recommended to us from a neighbor. When we first met her we had no idea what kind of property would suit us best and she was extremely patient as we narrowed down our search. Her knowledge of the area is excellent as she has purchased properties in the area. She was quick to point out flaws in properties that we might not have been aware of. Most important of all, she guided us through a very difficult closing process by going above and beyond her duties to find old documents and to help interpret them. She answered emails and calls immediately and was available at all times of the day.  More Less
