Stories of our clients' successes!

  • "Very Impressed!"

    Was extremely impressed with service!

  • "You're the Best!"

    You were an absolute dream to work with, Barbara! Thank you for being such a wonderful human being, advocate, and shepherding us though this big leap in our lives. You're the best. And we love your postcards.

    The housewarming is coming in the next couple months!

  • "We Had a Fantastic Experience!"

    We had a fantastic experience working with Barb! As first time homebuyers, she was very good about walking us through the process and was extremely responsive.

  • "It Was a Pleasure and Fun to Work with You!"

    My rental home had been trashed but your wise advice to make the home valuable gave me hope. You never pushed your ideas, but let me come to good decisions. It was a pleasure and fun to work with you. I wish I had more real estate to buy or sell so we could do this again!

  • "Barb is Really the Best!"

    Barb exhibited the highest degree of professionalism that if we could have hoped for in our broker and yet she was also very warm and personal. I especially loved how she listened to all our needs and concerns - as individual members of our family and as a whole family. Barb is really the best!

  • "Barb is the Best! "

    Barb is the best! We have been clients since 1992 and have worked on five deals together over the years. While buying and selling homes can be stressful, we have shared a lot of laughter and consider Barb a dear friend who put our needs first while always reminding us that good karma always wins!

  • "Great Realtor!"

    Great realtor with lots of knowledge. Thanks so much!

  • "She's Funny and Very Kind!"

    Barbara was extremely reliable. When there were houses we wanted to view she always made herself available within minutes to hours. She had sound advice but was unbiased.

    Her years of experience are such an asset as she has great contacts in the community. We always felt she was working for our best interests, not to mention she's funny and very kind.

  • "Endless Patience!"

    We feel very grateful for the opportunity to work with someone like [Barbara] - who had endless patience, impeccable ethics, and tremendous professionalism. It was a pleasure!

  • "Barbara, You Were Amazing!"

    Barbara, you were amazing! You guided us on a huge-cross country move for our family and made the process as smooth as it could be. Thank you for listening and for guiding us - we found an incredible house and are so thrilled!

  • "Thrilled to Work with You Again!"

    Really appreciated:

    1. you listened to our needs

    2. no pressure to buy

    3. always available on text/email/phone

    4. provided guidance throughout (eg. sewer scope-we'd never have known to do that)

    Thrilled to work with you again!

  • "Honest, Knowledgeable, and Full of Integrity!"

    I have known Barbara since 1993 when she helped me sell my home and purchase another home. She was professional, thorough, thoughtful, approachable, and willing to answer all my questions.

    Since that time, though I have remained in the same house, I have called on Barbara a few times for consultation purposes. These have included: a walk through of my house for upgrade ideas, a conversation and a hard copy booklet of comparable houses in my neighborhood, and a conversation regarding the pros and cons of selling my home. On each of these occasions I have always felt comfortable presenting my concerns and questions and have never felt that Barb had an agenda.

    All of this is to say that I would highly recommend Barbara for buying and selling a home. I have always found her to be honest, knowledgeable, and full of integrity at all levels. I certainly would not hesitate to call on her again when I need real estate guidance.

  • "She is Diligent, Helpful, and Patient!"

    In addition to being extremely knowledgeable about real estate and what is happening in the RE market, Barbara Nelson is also a skilled negotiator. She is diligent, helpful, and patient. Barbara advised me during the purchase of my home, and during the contract process she explained the various clauses and answered numerous questions about the multiple forms and reports. Barbara was available during the entire process from our initial discussions through to the house closing. She is calm under pressure which was helpful while awaiting contract responses. She also has excellent resources for inspections and repair. I will absolutely contact Barbara about RE matters in the future

  • "We Would Refer Her to Our Family and Friends!"

    Barbara was kind, helpful, and knowledgeable. She was available to us throughout the transaction, and we would refer her to our family and friends.

  • "Thank You!"

    5 Star Agent!

  • "Our Experience Was a Lasting One! "

    As a first time home buyer, our experience was a lasting one! We are excited about the house and it seems like it keeps getting better! We greatly appreciated the combination of professionalism with a friendly, almost family-like communication experience. I've already referred you to two other people interested in buying a new property. Hopefully (for their sake) you will hear from them soon. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you so much!

  • "She Knew the Market Well and Got to Know Us Well!"

    I have known Barbara Nelson since 1999 when she was highly recommended to me by a co-worker who told me I could not find a better realtor. Barbara helped my husband and I buy our first home together. I had never been involved in a real estate purchase but my husband had. My questions were a lot different than his were and Barbara answered each of one with professionalism and kindness. She knew the market well and got to know us well. She was there with us the whole way, advising us on rates, percentages, points, etc. but more importantly to me, she also affirmed the feeling we had about it - on how that house was right for us and our family.
    Eventually we outgrew that little house, and she helped us through the sales process, and advising us about what we needed to do to have it shine on the market. She has now helped us buy and/or sell three homes and my co-worker was right - she's the best. Her resources within the industry - for everything from painters and plumbers to landscapers and roofers - are amazing and everyone she's ever referred me to has been just as she's described. I couldn't ask for a better partner in real estate. But I consider Barbara much more than just my realtor; she's become a wonderful friend.

  • "I'd Be Happy to Recommend Her!"

    Barbara represented my husband and I in the purchase of our condo and later the sale of that condo and purchase of another property. She was a pleasure to work with and made the entire home-buying experience smooth and stress free. Barbara listened to our wants and needs and didn't pressure us to look beyond these parameters. She was very organized and thorough but also helped us move through the process very quickly. I will definitely use Barbara again for our future real estate needs and I'd be happy to recommend her to my friends and family.

  • "Appreciate Your Dedication and Communication!"

    Appreciate your dedication and communication over the past 5 years helping us find our first home and transitioning to Montana!

  • "Barbara is a Great Agent!"

    Barbara is a great agent-- clearly explaining the process, providing good communication, listening to my needs, and available throughout the transaction. I would refer her to friends and family in a heartbeat.

  • "Barbara Was Just Great!"

    Barbara is just great! She is very responsive in communicating and readily available to answer questions.

  • "You Made The Whole Process Easy!"

    Thank you so much for your patience! You made the whole process easy.

  • "Your Communication Was Great!"

    Thanks for helping me purchase this property! Your communication was great, and you listened to my needs throughout.

  • "Thank You for Your Guidance!"

    Thank you for your guidance from beginning to end. You did an amazing job of minimizing our expense and maximizing our selling price. Thank you so much! Only with that we had another Seattle house to sell.

  • "She Always Had Excellent Referrals!"

    Working with Barbara was far and away the best experience we have ever had with a realtor!! In our case, we had a lot of improvements to put into the property before putting it on the market. Barbara provided excellent advice on what would enhance the marketability of the house, and if we needed some help she always had excellent referrals. In the end, the house sold in 11 days in one of the toughest markets in recent memory. Barbara provided great advice in working with the buyer, and the closing went like clockwork!! We’re not selling anytime soon, but when we do Barbara will be our realtor.

  • "Excellent Support!"

    Excellent support, great recommendations and friendly demeanor!

  • "We Were Very Lucky!"

    We were very lucky to have had the assistance from Barbara Nelson. She facilitiated the process of selling our old house and purchasing our new condo. Barbara was very professional and has excellent insight. She is the best!

  • "Barb Was an Absolute Joy to Work With!"

    Barb was an absolute joy to work with! It was very clear that she was going to do whatever it took to make sure that our home sold as fast as possible for as much as possible! And she did not disappoint! She is the epitome of what a professional should be. We couldn't be happier with our real estate transaction and we can't recommend her highly enough!

  • "We Would Definitely Refer Her!"

    Barbara is a consummate professional in all respects. We would definitely refer her. She is top notch! She guided us flawlessly through a complicated process!

  • "Barbara Defines Everything in a Realtor!"

    Barbara was a recommendation from our previous, now retired, realtor, and boy were we ever happy to have been referred to her! Barbara defines everything in a realtor a family can hope for when searching for their perfect home! Her knowledge, experience, and expertise are beyond belief! It's her kindness though, and attention to detail that really matter in the end. Barbara became our true confidant in listening to us and really getting to know us. It was never about the sale, but always about making us happy. We fell in love with a house and decided to make an offer that very night. Barbara is so easy to talk to that the owner selling the house talked to her for a while before we arrived to see the house. She became a friendly face to the sellers, instead of a lot of money in a big game! In the end, even though we couldn't bid nearly as high as the other bidders, we got the house! We are confident that this wasn't just luck, but Barbara's ability to let the owner of this 60 year family home know that we loved and would care for this home just as it should be. It was such an amazing success that would not have been possible without Barbara!

  • "Very Helpful!"

    You made selling my home a clear step by step process, giving me just enough information and not overwhelming me with too many details, etc. I think you understood my needs and you were very helpful. I appreciate your expertise and will absolutely recommend you.

  • "5 Stars!"

    5 Stars!

  • "You Can't Go Wrong!"

    Barbara is a professional in every sense of the word: intelligent, diligent, very knowledgeable, great at representing her clients' interests, and very personable and creative. All that and she doesn't have a pretentious bone in her body. She is a genuinely good person. She was able to assist me with every phase of selling my house, from preparation to negotiations to closing. Awesome in every way. You can't go wrong with hiring her as your real estate broker.

  • "Barbara is a Very Experienced Realtor!"

    Barbara is a very experienced realtor and cares for her clients throughout the listing and buying process. We experienced this through several successful closings with her. We would not hesitate to use her again. Thank you and keep up the good work.
