Barbara Butler came fully prepared to the real-estate profession, leveraging her background in mortgage finance and corporate relocation to assist buyers and sellers across the Dallas metroplex. Nearly two decades later, she’s become a consistent top producer with a specialty in the sale and marketing of multi-million-dollar luxury homes, though she assists clients in all price ranges.
Her experience as a corporate relocation specialist make her particularly well suited for the Dallas market, which leads the nation in relocations from other states and abroad, according to the Dallas Morning News. Because these moves can happen quickly, Barbara wastes no time identifying the right home for a buyer on short notice and preparing a home for sale with equal speed.
Her secret in all cases is the same, she says: “Don’t look at the deal. These are real people. These are their homes and their families.” By zeroing in on her clients’ specific needs and lifestyle, Barbara writes a different roadmap every time, whether a client is leaving the area or just moving to the neighborhood next door.
And as a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist, Barbara is skilled in achieving top dollar for each listing. Using the Compass Concierge service, which handles the up-front costs of renovation, she can address every necessary improvement before listing a house without asking her clients to spend their money out of pocket. In one recent sale, her sellers completed every upgrade she requested by using the concierge service. The work resulted in 19 showings in the weekend after it was listed and seven offers either at or above the list price by Monday. “When sellers take advantage of Compass Concierge, it makes a big difference,” she explains. And the cost, which was repaid upon settlement, paid for itself more than two times over.
After 20-plus years in the business, Barbara has helped many of her clients through several moves, and they swear by her work. “Above and beyond”, “overachiever”, and “fun, knowledgeable and very professional” are among the comments offered in testimonials. Perhaps most telling was a buyer who said, “I admire someone who puts their clients’ interests before their own.”
Barbara raised her four children in the Allen Independent School District. In her spare time she enjoys shopping, trying new restaurants, traveling, listening to audiobooks, and raising her Maltese puppy, Coco Chanel.
★★★★★ "Barbara was able to assist us with looking at way to many houses. Her patience and professionalism really allowed us to make many hard choices. She also helped us navigate through the many items we needed, like contractors, so that we had skilled workers ready to rehabilitate the house we purchased.“ - Kirk M.
★★★★★ "Barbara is very knowledgeable, prompt, and an overachiever. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She listens to exactly what you tell her and will guide you to get the best deal possible.“ - McKinney Buyer
★★★★★ "I've worked with many realtors in the Dallas area and Barbara was by far the best. She was very helpful and honest. I always felt like she was looking out for my best interests whenever we were looking at properties. She was very responsive and made me feel like I was her only client, even though I know she has many. I would highly recommend her. “ - Plano Buyer
★★★★★ "Visited the Dallas area after my husband retired this summer to consider a relocation. With so many different areas to choose from we found the Allen, Frisco and McKinney a good possibility so we asked a gentleman at a Baptist Church who he would recommend for that area. He gave us Barbara's information and we contacted her immediately. Although she knew our plans were not 100% final at this point that did not matter. She went above and beyond and showed us many homes in the areas we found appealing. As we looked at properties she was fun, knowledgeable and very professional. At this time we came back home to finalize things and will be going back to look with her again. I would recommend her for any of your real estate needs.“ - Allen Buyer
★★★★★ "We had a great experience with Barbara from the very first phone conversation we had. She took the time to listen to our tentative plans and offered advice and alternatives, things we did not even think about. Instead of selling our home (which she could have just listed it and made money from!) she talked to us about the possibility of leasing it and using it as a long term investment. We were still able to purchase a home, but we also have our money working for us by keeping the home we wanted to sell. I admire someone who puts their clients interests before their own. We will definitely seek her expertise again.“ - Dallas Buyer
