Customer Testimonial

Brooks & Barbour

Seller Rating:

I would use Karen again and again to sell my houses as she has done over the years. She doesn't surgar coat anything and just says exactly what needs to be done and recommnds the people to call to get it done if needed. If you disagree with what she says, she just sais, "OK." and moves on. She wants to get it sold as much as you do, and she knows how to do that.

She could have offered to climb up and change a 25 foot dryer vent line cause she is so much smaller than I am, but I wouldn't let her even if she asked. She was perfect. I appricate her support and attitude even when I was a basket case. - Paul Hein, Formerly Clem September 2017

Seller Rating:

Moving out of the state before selling our house was a tremendous worry for us. But Lucy went above and beyond what we expected to ease our minds, communicate and stay on top of feedback for our benefit. She is a very 'hands-on' agent following thru with recommendations on our behalf ... and made us feel very well taken care of. - Loic & Karleen Jaffres May 2017

Brooks & Barbour

Seller Rating:

It would be easy to believe we are giving Lucy Barbour an Excellent rating in all aspects because we are friends and have been colleagues and you would be right to the extent that we surround ourselves with people of excellence and she is Excellent. She did not disappoint and went the extra mile on marketing. Lucy explained the market for a specialty home like ours and the potential for a long term marketing period. We appreciated her candor and found her still positive and energetic. It allowed us to remain realistic and optimistic at the same time. The truth is, she worked so hard on her marketing efforts that we wondered if the commission was enough for the value of her time and talent.

We have already recommended Lucy and Century 21 New Millennium to others. - Dan & Julie Van Orden, H August 2015

Seller Rating:

Karen Brooks is the best Real Estate Agent that I have ever used comparing her to over 20 others from Sales of properties in California, Washington state, Arizona and Maryland.

I told Karen (who managed my property as a rental) that if she had a buyer, to keep us in mind as she continued to manage it. About 2-3 months later she had an inquiry about buying rental property and sold ours. Not only did she do a fabulous job with the sale; she also did a fabulous job finding a renter and managing the whole process of our condo. The tenant she found for us was unbelievable. The kept the apartment like a model home and they were never late on the rent in 3+ years.

In 2005, Karen sold my Dad's house after my Mom died. Dad (83) was a mess and Karen helped me deal with him and kept me sane. Mom and Dad moved into their house in 1966. Dad was an old crumengon and on his best days difficult to deal with. She sold it and spent lots of time helping him understand the process.

If you need a honest, reliable Real Estate pro, that epitimizes Karen!

Again, the best ever! - Bonnie Herzog Chandler, March 2016

Seller Rating:

I had lived in the area for over twenty years. Observed that Lucy Barbour had been a "Top Producer" for Century 21 a number of times. When I first contacted Lucy regarding the sale of our home my sense was she was a professional, well organized, and thoughtful about how to market our home. She also did not "oversell" her capabilities, she is a realist.

Our home sold in a matter of days from my initial meetng with Lucy. Photos were taken and a marketing video of exceptional quality was made immediately following our meeting. It is my understanding that the video was not even on the MLS listing before there was a serious buyer. Lucy listened to what our price objective was, was in constant contact and provided status as the sale moved forward. She was thorough in her plan to complete the sale and always available to answer questions and provide guidance. The MLS listing was beautifully presented, so much so that we shared it with family and friends.

Lucy Barbour is a quintessential professional. We knew we had chosen the right person to sell our home. Could not have hoped for a smoother marketing/sales

process. Well done! - Karen Farrah, Ft. Myers, June 2015

We will definitely go back to Lucy for all our Maryland real estate needs. - Pam And Dave Jamieson, C February 2015
