Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Rivesville, WV.
I was new to Morgantown. I did not know anybody. I talked to a a friend back home in the real estate business, who made a few calls and recommended that I call Barbara.. Stating that she was the "Best". I called, and we looked at a few houses. Her Associate Rachel Burak was also very Knowledgeable and they were able to guide me through the whole process.
Whenever I had questions, They were answered correctly and promptly. I believe that these two ladies are the best that Morgantown has to offer as far as Real Estate Agents are concerned.
After much searching (I am picky) I closed on a smaller home that was newly built close to the river, in a small community that fits me perfectly. These ladies are courteous, professional, and will find you exactly what you are looking for.
When Barbara Phillips and Her Associate Rachel say they have your best interest in mind. Believe them. They held my hand through the whole process. I will be recommending them to new people as they come into town.
I think of them very highly, and I could not have asked for a better buying experience.
Thank You Ladies. Your timing was impeccable, and your resources, and knowledge of the area was amazing. Thank You so much for Helping me find my dream home.
Barbara is the very best agent we have ever worked with! She is a true businesswoman with good sense, knowledge, and super people skills. She worked hard for us everyday right up to the sale, truly earning every penny of her commission. We would recommend her to anyone!

She helped us a lot in finding our first home. She made things clear and easy to understand and didn't mind us at all when we asked a lot of stupid questions. She and Rachel Burack were always quick to respond and they made us feel at ease with the whole process. In the end, she was representing the seller of the house we purchased so her ability to negotiate back and forth was limited, but we still think she did a good job in doing what she could.
Barbara helped us with selling the house and also buying one in the highly- sought-after-and-hard-to-find area of Suncrest. During selling, she assisted us with getting the price right and advertising in her vast network. She also handled the contracting and negotiation process very well. While buying, she was patient with us and showed several properties before we settled on one. She was willing to listen to our inputs and did not try to force her opinions.

Barbara helped me find the perfect home! I looked at a house that I chose and decided that it was not for me, and Barbara sent me a list of potential houses. The next house that I looked at was the one. Barbara helped come up with an asking price, and within an hour we had a verbal agreement. As a first time home buyer, she was great with explaining the process to me and was very quick to respond to all of my emails/phone calls. I also work midnight shift, and she was very flexible when it came to working with my schedule. I would definitely recommend her to anyone! You will not be disappointed!

Barbara was a very responsive realtor. Her friendly and professional demeanor made her an easy person to work with, and my husband and I found the home we were looking for very quickly. She represented us well in the purchase of our home, and made the process of buying a new house easy. I highly recommend Barbara Phillips to anyone looking to buy (or sell) a home.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Morgantown, WV.
Our starter home in Wiles Hill subdivision was listed with Barbara and we could not be more pleased with the professional handling of the listing and sale. Barbara provided valuable input to improve curb appeal and interior showing of the home. Barbara showcased our property with the value add of her skills.
All inquiries and actions were responded to with positive feedback and a friendly, "helping hand" attitude. Barbara represented us and our property from date of listing through the closing.
Anyone would be well advised to retain Barbara's services!
Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Morgantown, WV.
Barbara is the agent! I am an international student. and I know nothing about US real estate. I tried to contact several agents to ask for help, but unfortunately, none of them replied my messages, except Barbara. She taught and helped me everything about how to buy a house in the US, she updated every detail about the house and gave me lots of advise. In the very limited time (about 2 weeks), with her help, I finally bought an excellent new house.Thanks Barbara, I really appreciate it!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Fairmont, WV.
Barbara is great! She was always very quick to respond to my questions (of which there were many) and she really made the process a lot less painful. We were first time home buyers and she was very patient and understanding even though my husband and I couldn't agree on what we wanted and changed our "must-haves" halfway through the search. When we found the home we both wanted, she made excellent suggestions for our starting bid and conditions and really worked hard to make sure we got a fair deal. Highly recommended!!

Overall a very smooth relationship working with Barbara. She completely understood my needs/wants in a home and was able to locate a property that filled almost all of those. Worked quickly, efficiently, and was very timely with her communication throughout the process. I would highly suggest working with Barbara, and plan on using her again for any future real estate needs within the Morgantown area.
