My wife and I moved from a town home in Durham to a single family home in Hillsborough, NC last month. We selected Barbara G as our agent based on a strong unsolicited (and repeated) recommendation from a co-worker. We are very happy we did! As I have purchased and sold a home in the past, I have become accustomed to know what to expect from a real estate agent. But when using an exclusive buyer's agent like Barbara, "There IS a difference!" as she says in her tagline.
She worked exceptionally hard for us to find the perfect home meeting our fairly strict criteria and was cognizant of our deadline of being out of our previous home. My wife and I had difficult schedules to work around, but Barbara was always available for us. Despite her having a number of other clients, we always felt like we were the only ones. The week we closed, she had 3-4 other closings, yet she went through two walk-throughs for us, arranged a painter, and attended closing.
As she used to be a home builder, she has exceptional knowledge about homes. She took great pride in being there for us every step of the way and was always prompt with her communication, day or night. We would definitely work with Barbara again and will recommend her to anyone in the area looking to buy a home.
