Most bizarre real estate story?

When you find the right home for a buyer, it usually fits their personality and style. I had the pleasure of working with a 6’7” client and in this case, we had to find a home that literally fit his size. We laughed a lot about how many times he would bump his head before finding the “one” but we finally did!

Compliments

“Barb was spectacular in every phase of selling a difficult ­to­ move property. In addition to helping us decide what maintenance issues needed to be addressed to get the house market ready, she was a fount of knowledge regarding the local market and her communication with us was fast, effective, and very friendly. Barb did more than help us sell our house, ­­she became a partner and friend in the process. We are grateful for all she did for us and would recommend her to others with immense enthusiasm. At the end of the journey you, too, will be able to say, “Thanks Barb,­­ WE did it!”

“Working with Barb was wonderful. I was really impressed with her negotiating skills, as this definitely helped me get the home I wanted. She was always attentive to my questions and replied to any and all texts and emails at any time of the day and night. She was very thorough and worked extremely efficiently. I would recommend her and this team to anyone.”
