Barbara is a truly a seasoned professional! She coached us through the highly emotional process of selling
our home with grace and humor and made what could have been a difficult and highly emotional
transition into an easy one. Her staging skills saved us a lot of turmoil and unnecessary expense.

M. Gardner

We’ve used Barbara for both sale and purchase, and have found her to be an exceptional and very professional agent. She is an easy person to work with, listens carefully to your concerns, and is very quick to respond to questions, problems and needs. She has an extensive network of resources to help you get information and services, and is very responsive when you reach out to her. She is an excellent agent.

Barbara helped us find and purchase our first home in Maplewood in 2007. Her knowledge steered us to a home we were extremely happy with. When it was time to move to a bigger place Barbara sold our home and helped us negotiate our purchase. I have complete confidence that our home sale went as well as it did due to Barbara’s expertise. She also facilitated the purchase of our forever home with skilled professionalism. Throughout the entire process she was always available to show us homes, quickly answer questions, and make follow up inquiries. She made a very stressful process much easier and was fun to work with.

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.

D. Miller

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.

V. Munoz

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.

Charlie James

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.

Ellen James

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.
