Throughout Barbara’s career in real estate she has helped clients buy, sell and rent homes across the spectrum, from Upper East Side Co-ops, Tribeca Condos, to Brooklyn Brownstones. Barbara has a unique professional perspective that combines her extensive previous career in the world of finance, representing top investment banks and private equity firms, with her comprehensive knowledge of the New York real estate market. She has developed exceptional client service skills as a committed advisor and the invaluable negotiation experience that leads to closing successful deals and maximizing value for clients.
Barbara found her own dream home 20 years ago, when she moved to Brooklyn Heights. She lives with her husband and two boys in an historic carriage house that she gut renovated. That process was instrumental in Barbara’s decision to work in real estate and help others find the right home and make the right deal with a confident guidance that makes an often stressful process as smooth and easy as possible.
She has a strong commitment to her Brooklyn community and is very engaged in her boys’ school. She is involved with and on committees/boards for many community organizations and not-for- profits including The Brooklyn Women’s Exchange, Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy, The Brooklyn Kindergarten Society, The Brooklyn Heights Garden Club, Good Shepherd Services and the Brooklyn Heights Association, among others.
