I have been a residential real estate broker for over 35+ years. Since 1991 I have been proud to be part of the Lake & Company family. Open, honest communication is the foundation of my professional work in helping guide my clients through a successful real estate transaction. I work hard to earn the trust and confidence of my clients.
As a professional real estate associate I am an advocate for my clients, helping them realize their ideal outcome.
My goals are to:
* Educate my clients so they can make their best decisions
* Facilitate the transaction process
* Troubleshoot any problems that arise
* Help my clients to negotiate successfully
* Offer guidance and resources now and in the future
I enjoy working with my clients and see us as a team. When you refer your family and friends to me you can be assured they will receive my focused attention. Much of my business today involves repeat clients and second/third generation family members. I am always honored when you pass my name along, and I look forward to helping you, your friends or family in the future.
Barbara represented my husband and I in the purchase of our condo and later the sale of that condo and purchase of another property. She was a pleasure to work with and made the entire home-buying experience smooth and stress free. Barbara listened to our wants and needs and didn't pressure us to look beyond these parameters. She was very organized and thorough but also helped us move through the process very quickly. I will definitely use Barbara again for our future real estate needs and I'd b...see more
Barbara was extremely reliable. When there were houses we wanted to view she always made herself available within minutes to hours. She had sound advice but was unbiased.
Her years of experience are such an asset as she has great contacts in the community. We always felt she was working for our best interests, not to mention she's funny and very kind.
Barbara is just great! She is very responsive in communicating and readily available to answer questions.
My rental home had been trashed but your wise advice to make the home valuable gave me hope. You never pushed your ideas, but let me come to good decisions. It was a pleasure and fun to work with you. I wish I had more real estate to buy or sell so we could do this again!
I have known Barbara Nelson since 1999 when she was highly recommended to me by a co-worker who told me I could not find a better realtor. Barbara helped my husband and I buy our first home together. I had never been involved in a real estate purchase but my husband had. My questions were a lot different than his were and Barbara answered each of one with professionalism and kindness. She knew the market well and got to know us well. She was there with us the whole way, advising us on rates, per...see more
5 Star Agent!
Barbara is a very experienced realtor and cares for her clients throughout the listing and buying process. We experienced this through several successful closings with her. We would not hesitate to use her again. Thank you and keep up the good work.
You were an absolute dream to work with, Barbara! Thank you for being such a wonderful human being, advocate, and shepherding us though this big leap in our lives. You're the best. And we love your postcards.
The housewarming is coming in the next couple months!
1. you listened to our needs
2. no pressure to buy
3. always available on text/email/phone
4. provided guidance throughout (eg. sewer scope-we'd never have known to do that)
Thrilled to work with you again!
I so loved working with you the past few years-I miss you! I certainly hope that I have the opportunity to refer you to others in the future. Your patience, support, advice, knowledge, feedback and encouragement were so very appreciated throughout the process of searching, buying, and selling.
Barbara, you were amazing! You guided us on a huge-cross country move for our family and made the process as smooth as it could be. Thank you for listening and for guiding us - we found an incredible house and are so thrilled!
In addition to being extremely knowledgeable about real estate and what is happening in the RE market, Barbara Nelson is also a skilled negotiator. She is diligent, helpful, and patient. Barbara advised me during the purchase of my home, and during the contract process she explained the various clauses and answered numerous questions about the multiple forms and reports. Barbara was available during the entire process from our initial discussions through to the house closing. She is calm under p...see more
Thank you so much for all your help. We really appreciate the way you set up our expectations and also that there are no surprises. We will continue to call you in the future.
Thank you for your support, hard work, kindness and diligence.
As always, it was a pleasure working with you.
Barb is the best! We have been clients since 1992 and have worked on five deals together over the years. While buying and selling homes can be stressful, we have shared a lot of laughter and consider Barb a dear friend who put our needs first while always reminding us that good karma always wins!
Barb, thanks so much again for helping me to get the house I want. You're services were perfect--before and after this transaction made it so easy for me. My friends and I will chose you as our agent, now and forever in Seattle.
