    Mission Statement

    I will give you the expertise that you deserve and negotiate the best deal for you in the most efficient and pleasant way.

    Barbara grew up in a small college town in western Massachusetts. She quickly understood the benefits of owning real estate as her family invested and prospered buying homes & income properties. At the age of 24, Barbara purchased her first home, a triple-decker in Boston.
    After receiving a graduate degree from Boston University in Broadcasting, Barbara moved to Los Angeles to work in the film industry. She was very fortunate to work with some of the most talented people in the film business. Her jobs required her to work with difficult personalities in highly stressful conditions. Her years in film productions enabled her to multi-task, adhere to dead lines, negotiate with vendors, remain calm, flexible & thrive for perfection. These skills make her an excellent agent.

    The Hollywood Hills, which crown the northern boarders of the Los Angeles Basin, are the streets rising and twisting above the neon lights of the Sunset Strip, to Laurel Canyon and its narrow offshoots that crawl up the couloirs walls, to the top of the mountains crest where Mulholland Drive winds for miles and miles and on either side the best views money can buy in Los Angeles. The homes are rare and innovative architectural gems that adapt to the steep and beautiful hills.
