"Barbara provided thorough review of the current comps we were listed with, while also taking into account a price we wanted to achieve on the sale of our home. She knows the market top to bottom and was able to help guide us to a sale."
"My wife and I interviewed 4 other realtors before meeting Barb and she blew them all away. Barb was honest, trustworthy and just truly a pleasure to work with. I would 100% work with her again in the future and recommend her to anyone looking for the best realtor! Thanks again Barb!"
"As a first-time homebuyer, I entered the process overwhelmed and anxious, but as soon as my wife & I started working with Barb I knew we were in good hands. Above all else, I immediately understood that Barb has a strong fiduciary duty and proved she was willing fight on her clients' behalf. Barb showed us our 'dream home' only to find ourselves engaged in in a multiple-buyer bidding war. She was patient and sensitive to our goals, which maybe were too often emotionally charged, and only through her professionalism, deep knowledge of the market and determined spirit does my family now call that house home."
“In fairfield county you have to find someone who truly knows the market and understands the valuation of quality [building] products and location. Barb Hazleton is truly an expert in these areas. Coupled with a calm knack for negotiation and great personality, you can’t find a better package in Fairfield County.”
“If you are looking for a realtor, look no further Barb Hazelton is the absolute best !! She helped me sell my home and was fantastic. Her advice was spot on. I followed it and got offers right away all above asking by at least $30,000. She is a master declutterer and has a wonderful arsenal of people to help you at her fingertips. She also uses the best people in the business to make sure the entire transaction goes smoothly and effortlessly. Listen to Barb and you will be happy you did”
Great Agent for Complex Transaction
We were extremely lucky to find Barb through a family friend. Her knowledge of the market, shrewd business sense, and the high-energy she brought to the process really made things easy for us.
Traveling from outside the area and navigating a difficult schedule we needed an organized, thoughtful agent who knew both our needs and the market cold. Barb provided both. We made many trips to town seeing over half a dozen homes each time. Even when we started to slow down Barb's energy and positive attitude kept the whole process moving. Once we identified a home we wanted to purchase we worked with Barb in a very collaborative process to come together and make our offer. After we had an accepted offer Barb really jumped into the nitty gritty details and helped protect our interests in dealing with the sellers and their broker.
Long story short, when dealing with a complex process that involves both major financial decisions and emotional factors I think you can't do any better than working with Barb Hazelton.
"Excellent market knowledge makes her an expert at pricing a sell, or bidding an offer. Refreshing to find a realtor who truly knows her market, and doesn't sell a bill of goods to get the transaction done. Honest, reliable, hardworking, And fun as an added perk!"
“We had the pleasure of working with Barb for the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our existing home. Barb took care of every detail from start to finish. She responded immediately and completely to every question we had, and guided us through every step of the process with a high level of patience and expertise. She is a true professional who cares very much for the clients she serves, and delivers on everything from start to finish. We highly recommend Barb to anyone buying or selling a home!
“I was thrilled to use Barb Hazelton to sell my house. She was truly unbelievable. Not only did she help price it right (and I had 3 offers on the same day ABOVE ASKING), she made the process so smooth. She was able to help me understand how to to stage my house and who to use to get it looking in tip top shape. She has a arsenal of wonderful people from handymen and painters, to inspectors, junk removal and real estate attorneys. She has it all soup to nuts. In fact, the buyers of my house and their realtor were also surprised at the smooth transaction. Selling a house is a stressful experience but it doesn’t have to be if you use Barb Hazelton. Wonderful, upbeat and honest. You don’t need to look anywhere else when trying to find a realtor. ”
