Barbara is an incredibly hard working agent who went over and above to get our condo sold. She had a ton of great ideas, was proactive in helping us get renovations done, had great attention to detail and was always available to answer questions. We had full confidence in her and were extremely pleased when we got a full price offer within a day of listing our condo.
I would not hesitate to use her services again and would recommend her to anyone buying or selling.
Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Lake Forest, CA.
Barbara, helped me lease my home in Irvine, that I have had for 30 years. This was on the first day I had mentioned I would like to lease instead of sell my home. Babara also helped me and my new wife find a smaller home to lease in the area.
Thank you for your wonderful service,
Barbara Q. Offer, Ph.D.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Tehachapi, CA.
When purchasing our first home, we were simply amazed at the home Barbara found us immediately. She listened to us and knew exactly what we wanted. She worked quickly on the transaction and closed early so we could move in without storing items and moving twice in less than a normal 30 day escrow. Barbara ALWAYS listened to us intently making our first transaction seamless without issue. We highly and strongly recommend her for any and all real estate transactions.
Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Tustin, CA.
We were first time home buyers in the market looking for a realtor and came across her outstanding reviews on Zillow. My husband and I thought let’s just set up a meeting to get a feel if we would like to work with her. Well our one hour meeting turned into a three hour meeting and we felt so comfortable with Barbara as if we had known her for years! We just got us and what we wanted and we had no doubt that she was the realtor we wanted to work with.
That weekend she gave us her undivided attention all day Saturday and Sunday and we were able to look at 25+ properties. That next week we already had an offer placed and accepted on a hot property that had only been on the market 2 days. Our escrow process was unbelievable smooth with no bumps along the way. Barbara was in constant contact with the listing agent and our lender and continually kept us informed of the progress. Our lender even mentioned to us several times how amazing Barbara was to work with and he had no idea how we found her because she was like a needle in the haystack! We are now in our beautiful home and couldn’t have done it without Barbara. We highly recommend as a buyer or seller agent. Set up a short meeting with her, you won’t be disappointed. :)

Thank you so much for finding me online and your kind words. You two are a class act as I knew the minute I met you. You helped with the entire process also as smart as you two are. Great things are ahead for you and I'm thrilled to have been a part of finding your 'turn key' beautiful home. Always here for you.....Barbara
I was very impressed with the professionalism of Barbara Waldowski in the sale of my Laguna Niguel property. I have had three prior real estate transactions and she by far was the best! I would definitely use her in the future and give her number out to all of my friends and business contacts who need a realtor. She took the time to understand everything that I wanted from the transaction and she went forward with my best interests. Trust, integrity and experience are the reasons why I would definitely use her again in the future. Thanks Barbara!

You and your daughters were so nice to work with. Thank you for your kind words! It was my pleasure working with your family.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $650K in Silverado, CA.
On a scale from 1 - 10, Barbara W. = 100
I originally listed my home For Sale by Owner. I was inundated from Realtors trying to convince me to have them help me sell. I was annoyed at first, but there was something about Barbara's message content that drew me to contact her.
After meeting/reviewing her portfolio, I decided to have her help me. I am extremely thankful I did.
I listened to her suggestions regarding preparing the home.
It paid off, after a few months of diligent hard work, updating the home, removing the clutter, etc. It took ONE DAY from listing to receiving/accepting an offer.
In my humble opinion, that says it all.
It didn't stop there, Barbara has and still is there for me:
- Helped me to find a lease
- Helped me with the ups/downs of moving
- Has been there for ALL/EVERYTHING
I consider her to be a confidant and friend now and would not recommend anyone else but her.
Helped me rent a Multi Family home in Huntington Beach, CA.
Barb is one of those people you come across in life and you think to yourself "wow, that is a great person." She embodies every quality of a true and honest professional and is extremely passionate about her work. I had the pleasure of working with Barb in mid 2014 and if I ever am in the market again, I will go out of my way to involve her in the process again. Highly Recommended.

You Brian are a class act!! Thank you for your kind recommendation. It was a pleasure.
Barbara helped us find the most beautiful home for our family. She is extremely knowledgeable, to the point of impressive. Always available to answer our emails and texts, but also available on the phone which is an added bonus. Barbara has been available to answer any questions we have months later. She doesn't have to, but she does. Highly recommend her expertise. On a personal note, I had a fun time looking at homes with her. Very pleasant!
Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Ladera Ranch, CA.
Barbara was instrumental in finding our Ladera Ranch condo. Barbara is truly an expert in her field. She knows the Orange County area like the back of her hand. Her strongest quality however is how much she cares about her clients. She's always looking out for your best interest instead of a quick sale. And her responsiveness is top notch. Texts and e-mails are responded to almost immediately, and she always picks up the phone when I call (I think I only had to leave one voice mail during our search). Barbara is highly recommended!!!

Thank you so much Louie. You and Nancy were a pleasure to work with, always courteous and kind. And those girls are too cute!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Santa Ana, CA.
She helped us jump on a new listing and was able to procure a price $50,000 less than the asking price by quick action. We could not have closed without her. We like her so much the first time we bought another apartment unit a month later with her
