We recommend Barbara because she is professional, very efficient, personable and most important, she listened to us. Our (South Orange) house was up for sale for 6 months before we contacted Barbara and when it went into her hands it sold in 6 days. Her advise was invaluable and her knowledge exceeded requirements in all areas. Barbara promised results and delivered results. She took us through every aspect of selling our home even when it wasn’t in her venue. We will always be indebted to her and our only regret is that we didn’t use Barbara in our first attempt to sell our home. hTanks so much, Barbara.

Barbara Lawrence is a dedicated professional who provided sound advice and technical expertise during my recent relocation to Glen Ridge, New Jersey. Her ability to quickly identify properties on the market that met the needs of my family and my budget was impressive. In my absence, Barbara continually went above and beyond her normal duties by securing the necessary professional services needed for closing. Her knowledge, common sense approach and unquestionable integrity earned her my complete trust and confidence in any real estate or related financial matter. I would highly recommend Barbara to anyone relocating to the Northern or Middle New Jersey area.

I rarely give 5 stars for everything, but Barbara is amazing. She really listened to what we were looking for and showed us some great houses in our price range. Her knowledge of Maplewood was fantastic and really gave us insight on where to buy. She was a great negotiator and helped us get our first house! I would recommend Barbara to anyone.

Barbara exceeded all of my expectations. Living abroad and wanting to relocate to the area, Barbara made every effort to be available night or day to show me numerous relevant properties and then follow up when necessary, even if I was not available. She was my advocate and willing to do whatever it took to close on the property. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or rent in the area.

I highly recommend Barbara. She is quite knowledgeable of the area she covers and works diligently to find the property you seek. She doesn’t pressure you for the sake of making a sale/commission and has resources available to assist with your needs to help complete the home purchase.

As residents of California we needed an agent that was going to go the extra mile to get the two homes ready for sale following a death in the family. Barbara was committed to getting things done while keeping us informed at each juncture. Outstanding service by an outstanding professional.

Barbara Lawrence’s expertise, contacts, hard work and experience guided us through the sale of two homes. She carefully studied the remodel needs of each house, hired great people to do the repairs and upgrades, and produced beautiful ready to live in houses that sold quickly. Her sense of humor and confidence in each project was reassuring making it a pleasure to work with her.

As Wil and I are down to unpacking the last boxes, I did not want another day to pass without telling you how much we appreciate your excellent help with the sale of our home.  You are the best!  We thank you for all that you have done to help with the preparation, staging, sale and relocation.  We could not have done this so well without you.  We will always recommend you to our friends!

From start to finish, Barbara did an outstanding job as our real estate agent! First, she and her colleagues staged our home beautifully. Next, knowing the Maplewood housing market very well, she advised us realistically on pricing without pushing us too hard to accept her advice. Throughout the sale she followed up on all leads and kept us informed. While under contract, she went out of her way to arrange her schedule to be available at our house for inspections and repairs when we were out of town. She helped to facilitate a very difficult negotiation.

In addition to being very professional, we found Barbara to be a very friendly person with whom we truly enjoyed working. We highly recommend her.

Sincerely,
Dr. and Mrs. Alan Jacobs

Barbara was an excellent agent! Our objectives were to explore the South Orange/Maplewood and Montclair area and find a house that met our needs and requirements. With Barbara’s help they both were achieved.

My previous experiences with real estate agents were that they were so busy that they didn’t seem to have time for us and we felt rushed. This was most definitely not the case with Barbara, who always made time to take us around and to answer our questions. She also learned our needs and our style incredibly quickly, communicated frequently, and advocated so that we got the house we wanted. Beyond that, she has a good sense of humor and is just generally a nice person (important when you are spending hours in the car together!)

We really enjoyed working with Barbara. She knows the area and
knows her stuff!
