What do Clients Say?

Barbara was hired to sell my home in Punta Gorda Isles in 2018 and I could not have been happier. She worked tirelessly, holding frequent open houses, utilizing a professional photographer/videographer who made an amazing video, and even handled some maintenance issues for me. Barbara is extremely easy to work with, always professional, positive and considerate. Most importantly she got the job done quickly, handling even the smallest detail straight through closing.

Barbara has helped me sell various pieces of real estate, both commercial and residential, in Charlotte County, FL. Barbara has proven to be a total professional in her field. She insures that all technical tools at her disposal are utilized to best promote the property. I have been retired for quite some time, but was a licensed real estate broker during my professional career. In my professional opinion, Barbara qualifies as an exceptional real estate professional.

CC - Punta Gorda, FL

I have never seen a realtor work as hard as Barbara. She is no “list it and leave” agent. She works hard to get your home properly prepared to sell and presented to show. I have bought and sold with her - that’s how much I trust her. What’s more, she has integrity beyond compare. She works to negotiate the best deal and at the same time ensures it is a “win-win” for all parties. I highly recommend her.
