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.

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!

A true professional. Barbara knows what she's doing will walk with you through the selling process. She worked very hard for me in selling our property and has great command of the details and masterful in communicating with all stakeholders. Recommend her. Would retain her again!!!

Bought a home in 2008.
Barbara Cleland was extremely helpful in our search for a new home. As we were moving into a new community we really didn't know where to begin. Based on discussions to determine our objectives and her knowledge of the market she was able to quickly narrow the search. During this process she was always available, even on short notice to see that new listing we saw online.

Once we decided, her negotiating skills were invaluable in closing the deal at a fair price.

Her biggest asset however was her sensitivity to the overall process. Not pushy but willing to speak out when she thought it important, Barbara helped to make for a rewarding purchase experience.

Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Norwalk, CT.
Barbara's work was outstanding. I would recommend her to anyone buying, selling or renting. She was very responsive and took care of everything I needed going above and beyond normal agent duties. I am planning to hire her again for my next real state business.

Sold a home in 2006.
The Attorney for the Estate, for which I was an Executrix, requested atleast two Real Estate Appraisals from different Agents for the real estate involved.

After meeting with each of the Real Estate appraisers, I chose Barbara Cleland to handle the sale. It is my opinion that her appraisal was more realistic for the market at the time.

Her guidance and her expertise during the entire process helped make things easier for me to deal with. The sale of the R.E. was right in the range of her appraisal, and needless to say the Heirs were extremely pleased.

Showed home in 2011 in Winnipauk, Norwalk, CT 06851.
During our home purchase process we did a lot of research with my husband. We looked up properties and had our mind set about the parts of Norwalk where we would like to move. But Barbara always had something else to add and tried to introduce us to different options so that we can make the decision that will be the best for us in the long run. She knows not just Norwalk but also the surrounding towns very well. She was always quick to get back to us and arrange the viewings. It was great working with her and if we need the services of a real estate person in the future, it will most certainly be Barbara we would like to work with.

Showed home in 2011.
My wife and I were looking for a home to purchased in the Norwalk area and chose to work with Barbara as our realtor. She was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about working with us. In the end we decided to postpone purchasing until we had more of a down payment and Barbara was very understanding and supportive of our decision, despite having worked with us for a couple of months and showing us many places. We will definitely work with her again when we decide to continue looking for a place of our own.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $725K in Wilton, CT.
We used Barbara for the second time to purchase a home and were once again very pleased. Barbara has a passion for what she does, and her experience and expertise made our buying experience a successful one. She was honest, patient and understanding which is so important while buying a home. Barbara made my husband and I feel that she truly had our best interest at heart and always went above and beyond to make the entire home buying experience enjoyable.
