A personal note from Barbara:
"In the early 1980s I was in your shoes. I was searching for the perfect home for my family and myself but it seemed impossible. Sometimes I'd just want to give up in despair and it wasn't because I lacked the resources. I KNEW the home I wanted was out there somewhere and I'd have given anything to find a Realtor who'd put in the time and effort and would look out for ME, someone to advise me on my options, and hold my hand through the process of buying a piece of real estate at a price that didn't make me run for the hills. And in the end I wanted to trust my Realtor to negotiate a real estate contract that I could live with.
"Well, it didn't work out quite that way! 3 out of 4 Realtors upset or frustrated me and the last thing I wanted to do was to put my goal of finding my family's perfect home in the hands of someone who behaved like a rank amateur and didn't know their stuff.
"The result of all this was that I decided to become a Realtor myself and help other people avoid the frustrations and pitfalls along the way."
