- Elaine T

From the start of our engagement, Barbara demonstrated that she was prepared to take on the sale of the property, with its challenges and all. There was no judgment or pushback displayed. She came prepared with her research and had a case for the sales price and marketing strategy of the home. Given we were not local, she went out of her way to help with coordination of activities to ensure the house was positioned to go on the market within our timeline. She followed up with emails, phone calls, and texts to ensure transactions were documented timely and accurately. Barbara is a well sought after agent and juggles multiple client needs simultaneously, but she will make contact before the end of the day goes by to answer questions or provide updates. Her advice throughout the offer process was greatly appreciated and resulted in us meeting our goals. We are very appreciative of her representation and willingness to always put the seller's needs first.

They say a referral is the highest compliment, and that certainly turned out to be true. I was referred to Barbara Hartmann by my mother, who purchased her home with Barbara last year. Barbara treated me like a friend. She showed me properties that I had expressed interest in, but she also showed me properties that were affordable options I hadn't even considered. Her experience was evident in each aspect of the home search process, as well as in the closing process. As a first time home buyer, it was such a comfort to be able to depend on someone who's been through this process several times successfully. I would recommend Barbara to anyone even thinking about purchasing a home.

She was so bubbly and upbeat. Not pushy in any way. Very supportive to my needs, desires and nervousness. Did everything she said she would in a very timely manner. Kept me in the loop of everything going on including text messages whenever a showing, inspection or other sevice was being scheduled. Barbara did her homework before presenting what we should sell the house for. It was an as is sale and with her wonderful guidance on just small, simple to-dos the house was show ready with minimal effort. She hit the right price and it sold with little effort. I had considered selling myself, but so thankful I had Barbara handlecall the work. No glitches or hiccups in anything. At no point when we got together with Barbara to discuss particulars did she ever come across as rushed. We felt we were her only concern at that moment. Even when I had late night concerns and reached out to her via e-mail she had a prompt and informative response.

Barbara Hartman made buying a home a truly effortless process. She recognized my desires as well as my resources and assisted me by providing clear and concise phone calls, text messages and emails. She was available but never intrusive which I greatly appreciated. There were appointments and other details that Barbara arranged ie contacting our mortgage banker, reccomending inspectors, negotiating with the buyer and transporting us to the closing. Barbara's pleasant personality made the process an enjoyable experience. If you are looking for a top notch agent who is highly competent and knowledgeable I highly recommend Barbara Hartmann.

As I was preparing to sell my mom's house I was recommended to consider Barbara Hartmann. Of course the recommendation was important, but meeting Barbara in person was one of the most critical factors for me. I prefer to deal with intelligent people who know what they are doing and are successful at their job. I felt that her philosophy of selling and strategy for selling the house given my situation, matched my feelings about how I wanted the property to be presented. I didn't feel that I needed to find other agents to interview. As it turned out, with Barbara's confident advice and guidance, the process was easy to follow. Because the house would be vacant, one of her special touches is to stage the house with some furniture. This definitely helped give an idea of possible decorating ideas for any prospective buyer. As it turned out, the house had an offer the first day, and closed in little over a month. As contract negotiations moved along, I really liked the ability to sign documents with the e-signature feature through Berkshire Hathaway. It made the whole process extremely convenient and painless. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Barbara Hartmann to anyone who is looking for an agent who really know's her job and will do whatever is necessary to help you sell your house.
