About Me

We love putting deals together. Our team appreciates that a house is most likely the center of our clients' universe and something that can improve the quality of all facets of their lives.
 
Before buying or selling a home, one of the most important decisions you will make is the selection of an outstanding Real Estate Agent.  Not only the company with whom  they are associated, but the relationship you have with them.  Someone you can count on who will consistently communicate and educate throughout the process, from beginning to end.

Barbara and her team has a different approach to real estate, one that is built on personal touch and positive results.  A home is not a home because of its room dimensions or the color of the walls.  It is about how you feel when you walk through the front door, the way you can instantly envision your life unfolding there.  This is about more than real estate. It is about your life and your dreams.
 
 
Forward thinking is the key that brought success to Barbara and her team.  Always working in ways that benefit their clients.  Never relying on the past success, always seeking ways to improve and keep up with the ever-changing world of real estate.  Keeping their skills honed through classes and informative symposiums,  they are skilled and proficient in negotiating, marketing, interpersonal relationships and technology.  With a wealth of valuable experience and contacts on the local scene, they will guide their clients through a complex real estate transaction with a minimum of stress. 

Barbara & her husband, Dean  love the lifestyle in the Beach Cities area of South Orange County, soaking in the beauty that surrounds the beaches with growing, lush hillsides and legendary sunsets.  A piece of paradise they feel blessed to enjoy with family and friends.
