Jose was born and raised in Pacifica where he serves most of his clients. He takes pride in helping clients buy, sell, lease or finance homes. He graduated from San Francisco State with a degree in Business Administration and a concentration on Marketing in 2002. He started his real estate career as an investor in 2002, just as he was graduating college. He enjoyed the benefits of "sweat equity" by buying a distressed property and fixing it. His main goal was to show others how to do the same. Along the way he learned about other investments such as Cash flow properties and real estate development to name a few.

He was truly inspired to help people get out of the rental trap and get them into home ownership. Teaching people to build equity is a great gift that he like to pass onto his clients. Although in today's real estate market, it may not be as easy to build equity through appreciation, there are other ways increase equity. The easiest way is to get into a fixed rate mortgage and pay off the house over the term of the loan. Can you imagine having no mortgage payments after 30 years? Other ways is buy improving the property, by adding square feet, upgrading kitchen and baths, and many other ideas.

Jose's main goal is to add value through knowledge and expertise for his clients.

Bought a home in 2006.

I was a first time home buyer looking to purchase a home in Pacifica. I happened upon a Broker/Realtor named Jose Barba. He helped me immensely in finding the right home that suited my needs. Since my purchase , I have gotten married and moved into my husbands home. The home I purchased has proven to be a great investment as Jose told me it would be. I have used his services again and again as he is professional, knowledgeable, responsive, humorous, and definitely a one stop shop. I have used Jose Barba for refinancing my property and property management as well. Thanks to Jose for guiding me into a very smart investment. I look forward to working with him on future investments. I highly recommend Jose Barba and Home Sales Team....it is great to support local business!  More Less

Bought a Condo home in 2012 in Pacifica, CA.

I was a first time home buyer, and I honestly didn't know what I was doing or what I was getting myself into except that this was going to be the biggest investment of my life! I really like how he is so friendly, personable and down to earth, but most of all I like that he is truthful and honest. He helped me the whole way and was patient with my million questions- totally breaking down the real estate jargon and explaining and understanding all of my concerns. It get's better... unfortunately after being approved for an awesome loan, and purchasing my home, for some personal reasons I could not move into my new home; worried, I called Jose. Shortly after, we met and he helped me find a tenant!! He really knows what he is doing and is masterful at what he does!  More Less
