Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

I know buying or selling a home is one of the most important personal and financial decisions many people make, which is why we listen carefully to each client’s specific goals, and work diligently to satisfy them. In an ever changing market, I consistently track real estate and the other related market forces that drive decisions by buyers and sellers in the Chicagoland area in order to best advise our clients. I'm an experienced negotiator and have deep relationships with banking, legal and accounting experts clients often need when contemplating and completing transactions. Most significantly, my primary goal is to position you for maximum financial advantage, no matter which side of the transaction you’re on.

Nearly 90% of all my  business comes from referrals and repeat customers—which says a lot about my performance. I have been a top producer in the listing and sale of town homes, condominiums, single-family homes, with sales volume in 2017 of nearly 7 million.

Moreover, I have earned a reputation for attentive service and outstanding results. I can manage ALL the details of your real estate development projects, personal acquisitions and sales. Discover the benefits of my diligent, informed, imaginative marketing strategies and my effective and unwavering dedication to maintain your trust and achieve your goals.

If you are a seller, I have extensive experience preparing properties prior to listing to achieve the top potential price. 

If you are a buyer, I know what questions to ask to help you make a solid financial purchase.  I have a knack for finding that “special home” and negotiating the best deal.

And I'm not just local! If you you find yourself considering a move outside of the Chicagoland area, I can refer you to professional and knowledgeable agents throughout the US and 50 countries.

Contact me for all of your real estate needs. You’ll be glad you did! Barbara 312.282.1087
