We connected, but it did not work out.

I had contacted her a few times through zillow. Had finally received a call stating that the town house of my interest was already rented, despite is still being posted on the site. She was very short with me. I was very in satisfied with her services.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $4.225M in Darien, CT.

Last April, as a young family we decided to move from NYC to CT. We very much enjoyed working with Barbara. She is an extremely capable agent with great attention to detail. We found her on Zillow and immediately took notice of her diligence and responsiveness. We felt very comfortable with her starting with our first trip out to Greenwich and Darien because she was very knowledgble about the area and was able to point out a lot of interesting things to consider for us. Since it wasnt the easist trip to come out from the city with our six month old, we really wanted to maximize every single trip. Barbara understood our needs very well and always aimed to line up as many homes for visit as possible for us. Shes always very prepared with detailed documentation about each home we were visiting printed out for us so we may refer to them during or after the trip. After multiple trips we had found a home we wanted to bid on. Barbara was excellent through the bidding process and was very honest with us while providing us with as much relevant information as needed to make our decisions. Finally when we were ready to goto contract with the seller, Barbara again helped us tremendously, from lining up an attorney and inspector for us to assisting us with addressing every detail during the inspection and negotiating with the sellers on the punchlist . We trusted Barbara very much to represent our interests as well as point out potential risks throughout this entire process. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in Fairfield County. Without her we wouldn't be living in our amazing new home, for which she even found us a decorator and contractor who we also love. We were very lucky to have found her.  More Less

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Norwalk, CT.

I met Barbara at an Open House she was hosting in Norwalk. She was very knowledgeable about the Norwalk area. Barbara came to look at my property and she had creative and fresh ideas to "stage" it with a newer look. After being on the market with another agent for 11 months, Barbara was able to sell our home within 3 months! She was always available for us and other agents. Barbara personally provided many of the items for the "staging" of our home. She provided very important guidance through the process, specifically with negotiations and selling protocols. I also aked Barbara to assist in finding me a new home. She was so motivated to find the perfect place for me! Barbara took initiative, arranged appointments promptly, gave honest advice, and exhibited strong negotiation skills. I highly recommend Barbara as an agent if you are selling or buying. We were so lucky to find her!  More Less
