Words cannot do justice to the positivity of our experience with Barb as our realtor; any friend or family member who is considering buying or selling a house will get a recommendation from us to go with Barb. Since we didn't know any realtors in the area, we found Barb on the internet, and was she ever a stellar find! She responded immediately to every call, text or email, and she never made us feel us as though we were asking a dumb question (and I think sometimes we were) or contacting her too much. In fact, she encouraged us to contact her even more, and was always willing to meet up quickly to show any house we were interested in. When we met Barb, my husband and I left the primary showing with absolute certainty that Barb was the realtor for us. Extremely knowledgeable and very easy to communicate with, Barb brought confidence and reassurance to every aspect of the transaction. She went above and beyond in many ways, and was present for every aspect of the process, including all of the inspections. She knows a great deal about real estate and about the area, and has many professional contacts that help ease the process all around. She isn't trying to get her clients into just any old house to close a sale; Barb is passionate about what she does and seems to delight in matching her buyers to their perfect house. She turned a very shrewd eye to properties to point out features both positive and not so much so to make sure that we were making informed decisions. We never felt pressured by any interaction with Barb; she is easy going with her clients, but direct and firm when negotiating on their behalf. While friendliness and an outgoing, upbeat personality are not necessary aspects of a real estate transaction, it never hurt to have someone there who has a great sense of humor and is a delight to work with. What can I say...Barb is great and we are grateful to have had her on our side. Thanks, Barb; we absolutely love our new home!
