Hi and Welcome,

As the #1 Top Producing Solo Agent at Shorewood Realtors (385 agents), "Representing your home, as if it were my own", is not just another empty slogan to me. I believe it states the responsibility I feel in handling one of life's most important transactions.

Even though the internet has had a huge impact on the way that real estate is sold today, the business of buying and selling property still remains a people-to-people business. The beach cities have retained a small town atmosphere, in which, transactions are done with much importance placed on the agent representing a Buyer or Seller; An agent's past performance and excellent reputation are imperatives. I've had the privilege of putting many first time buyers into their first home and the unique distinction of closing the highest sale to date ($16 million), in the beach cities. Each of my clients is of equal importance to me and will always receive 150% of my energy, focus and attention.

In the beach communities, where housing styles are individual and diverse, putting a value on a given property is challenging and takes an agent with a real sense of history, in the area. When comparing properties as different as "apples and oranges", values cannot be determined by comparable sales alone. Other factors such as supply and demand in a given price range, view and potential view longevity, uniqueness and shifting demograpics all need to weigh in.

Although the majority of my business comes from referral and repeat clients, which I hope speaks volumes for the job that I do, I love to meet and work with new people. I look forward to speaking with you and hope to win your confidence and trust!

Sincerely,

Barbi

    Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $625K in Redondo Beach, CA.
    Barbi helped sell our home in redondo beach in october 2013. She was beyond helpful. My wife and I had relocated to the east coast and she made the process of selling our west cost home effortless. I can't recommend her enough. She is fabulous.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $4.25M in Manhattan Beach, CA.
    Barbi sold our house for $750,000 over the asking price and the experience was phenomenal from beginning to end! Rather than rush to put the house on the market, Barbi did an initial walk through zeroing in on any potential pitfalls or objections that might prevent us from getting the highest possible price for our home. Prior to listing the house, she spent four straight months with us, holding our hands and addressing every last issue-- no matter how major or minor.

    The enormous amount of work we did in so little time was only possible because of Barbi’s huge network of resources. With a few phone calls, she hooked us up with all of the handymen, specialists and consultants she’d used on past projects, and we were able to skip the time-consuming and tedious process of tracking down the right people, checking their references, getting bids, etc...

    It’s a good thing my husband and I actually enjoy Barbi’s company, because from start to finish she was at our house constantly! She has an uncanny ability to know what small details will resonate with buyers, and she used that knowledge to guide us along until the vision was complete. She was integral in every choice we made, no matter how minor. It’s hard to imagine another realtor being half as detail oriented-- she obsessed over every single decision with us, from big ones like taking down a wall, to teeny-tiny ones about door hinges and lampshades. And they all paid off.

    By the time we finished, my husband and I were so in love with the house -- it was such a warm, sophisticated version of its former self-- that we seriously considered not selling at all! But we went ahead and put it on the market, with Barbi pricing it very ambitiously. Within a few days, the offers started pouring in--all twelve of them!!! On Barbi’s advice we countered back the eight best offers. We watched her negotiate and finesse until she was blue in the face, ultimately getting us an astronomical sum of money for our house! There is absolutely no way we would have had so much success with another realtor. We are already looking for our next house and wouldn’t even consider buying or selling in the future without Barbi!!

    Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Manhattan Beach, CA.
    My wife and I met Barbi at an open house that she was hosting in 1995. Since that time she has represented us on three real estate purchases (one was our very first home) and two sales in Manhattan Beach, and we are currently working with her on the purchase of another home. Throughout the past 18 years she has become a trusted advisor and friend. Her intimate knowledge of Manhattan Beach real estate, realtors, lenders, appraisers, builders/developers, home repair professionals, etc. gives her clients all the knowledge and tools they need to purchase or sell with confidence. Her professionalism and genuine concern for her clients is unmatched. I highly recommend her for anyone - from those who are looking to learn more about the local market or purchase their dream home on the beach.  MoreLess
