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

Best realtor we have ever had. Very proactive throughout our purchasing process of a St. Augustine Condo on Crescent Beach. She was always there when we needed her. Can't say enough good things about her.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Saint Augustine, FL.

When we first started house hunting, we were not sure of the exact location or style of home we wanted. Barbara was very patient and showed us multiple houses in varying locations to help us make our decision. As a result, we found the perfect home in the perfect location. She was extremely helpful in educating us on the buying process as well. We had not purchased a home in over 20 years and a lot had changed. We would highly recommend Barbara who was always very professional and attentive.  More Less

Bought a home in 2011.

Worked with Barbara on a condo purchase in St. Augustine. Living in CT I had to rely on her knowledge of the market and local resources. Very accessible and helpful.
