Even after 3 years of looking for our dream home, Barbara never gave up on us. She always gave us hope that we would find the home we are looking for! And we did! We are happily living in our new home. Barbara was a patient, and very knowledge agent. She would always have the answers to all the question we had (and we had many!). The few times she didn’t she would reach out to others or research and get us the answers.
We were very luckily to have Barbara on our side during our (very long) house hunt. We would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for a home. I’m sure she will also be able to find you the home you’re looking for, no matter how difficult it may be.
I absolutely recommend Barbara as a real estate professional. She was an outstanding broker! She knew the River communities and condo complex very well and was able to negotiate an excellent selling price. Barbara was personable, flexible and responsive in dealing with me. I hope I can use her again if I return to the River towns.
BARBARA HAD LIVED IN THE AREA FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS. SHE WAS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE REGARDING THE SCHOOLS, RECREATION, TRANSPORTATION, ETC. IN IRVINGTON. WORKING WITH HER WAS A PLEASURE. EVERYTHING WENT SMOOTHLY WITH A GOOD OUTCOME. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND BARBARA.
Barbara, Is a great realtor, I always tell my friends to use her when they need to buy or sell their house or rent an apartment. She is friendly and very easy to get along with.
Barbara helped make our first property purchase a breeze! She was our strong foundation amidst a number of difficult roadblocks we encountered along the way. Would highly recommend!
Over the years, Barbara has helped me sell 2 homes and buy 2 homes, and she was always extremely knowledgeable, helpful and practical. She goes above and beyond in service, and made sure we always got the best deal we could.
Barbara is savvy about the market we were interested in; she gave me good advice and was generous with her time. I was glad to have her with me during the home buying process.
Barb Hallen, our real estate rep, helped us buy our place in 1999, and sell it in 2010. Both times she was always available to answer our questions, hold our hands when we panicked, and guide us to a lawyer (a good one with reasonable rates, no less!) when we needed one. In the down market of 2010, we worried about being able to sell, but, thanks to Barb and Houlihan-Lawrence, we were under contract for full asking price a mere week and a half after the place went on the market! Does it get any better than that? NO! Hats off to Barb and the professionals at Houlihan-Lawrence. - Nick Andes
