What do Clients Say?
"Barbara was the only one I came across who was truly "clueful." She truly listened, understood what we were after, and followed our lead. i.e. when we cooled our search, she didn't push; when we re-ignited, she poured it on. It was a long process, and she was VERY patient with us. She knows these neighborhoods intimately. And she has her finger on the pulse. She found us a house before it went on the market, she knew how to satisfy the sellers, and although we were one of three parties to make an offer on the house before the end of the day, she guided us to a successful purchase of a house we love."Ken P. - Newton, MA
Barbara did a great job for us, The purchasers were extremely uncooperative and the sale could have fallen apart if not for Barbara's professionalism.Lee A. - Newton, MA

We would recommend Barbara to all of our friends as well as giving her references.Maureen A. - Newtonville, MA
It is especially during the holidays when the pace slows down and we're able to spend more time at home that I am filled with gratitude. I'm thankful for the home we have. Most of all, I am thankful to you! For all your time and work you committed to securing a home for us.I hope you knew at the time just how much your help meant to us. There was so much uncertainty in our lives at the time, and [Barbara] finding us a home gave us an anchor.Reka P. - Massachusetts
