Testimonials for Barbara Michaluk
Barbara was an absolute pleasure to work with and deserves 10 stars! We were selling our mother’s apartment at Leisure World and Barbara guided us through the entire process. We needed to spruce up the place, and Barbara coordinated all the contractors, handling everything. Barbara knows Leisure World and the area and was able to advise us on all that needs to be done when selling a property. She even told us who and how to contact. The apartment sold within a week or so after being listed! She was always available and east to communicate with. Barbara is a true professional, an expert, and has extensive knowledge.
In sum, Barbara is amazing! Our family highly recommends Barbara to anybody seeking an experienced, energetic, intelligent person who gets great results.
"If you are thinking of buying or selling a property in Leisure World, I would strongly recommend you speak with Barbara Michaluk. Her knowledge of the community - including administration and rules/regs - is outstanding. I live in Virginia, which meant I couldn't be on-site as much as I would have liked. With Barbara, this became a non-issue. She literally handled everything for me, which turned the experience from potentially stressful to pain-free. Whenever I had a question, she had an immediate answer. She kept me updated on progress, and made sure I completed all of my responsibilities on time. She even fixed a maintenance issue for me herself! Barbara has an easy-going personality, which made my interactions with her a pleasure. By following her advice, we got a full-price offer on my mom's condo the first weekend it was on the market! Barbara Michaluk delivers results."
This is the fifth home I've sold in my life, and Barbara Michaluk is probably the best realtor I've ever had. Her market research was thorough and accurate, she gave us great advice on how to spruce up the home and assisted with finding and coordinating contractors' work so we could get the home on the market quickly. She was available whenever we needed to talk and would always return a text or call within minutes or a few hours. Her advice was prudent and sound on all aspects of the sale. Barbara was a strong ally from the minute we asked her to represent us, right through the closing.
I highly recommend Barbara for anyone seeking an experienced, energetic and results oriented realtor!
Overall, I would rate Barbara as a five star realtor. She was highly professional, experienced, responsive in every way and has a good sense of humor. However, most importantly, I trusted Barbara from the outset. Frankly, she made the entire process of selling our condominium at Leisure World very stress free. It was a pleasant experience for my elderly parents, sister & I.
It is without hesitation that I recommend Barbara to any potential buyer or seller. You won't regret your decision.
Barbara provided timely, helpful guidance and advice from the moment we decided to sell the home through the final settlement. In particular, Barbara is very knowledgeable regarding the sale and purchase of homes in Leisure World. Barbara marketed the house using various marketing techniques in a way which yielded excellent offers immediately. I highly recommend Barbara to anyone who appreciates an honest, hard working, friendly and communicative real estate professional. I could not be more pleased with the services she provided.
"I highly recommend Barbara, particularly for buying or selling in Leisure World. Her knowledge of the community, the advice she offered, and the service she provided got me a great price and allowed the whole process to go through smoothly."
Catherine & Jeff S.11/04/2016
We recently put my parents' condo at Leisure World in Silver Spring on the market and asked the estate sale company we used to recommend a few realtors. They gave us just one name: Barbara Michaluk. Based on our experience, we give her our highest recommendation. She oversaw every aspect of the condo renovations (which were extensive), and used a contractor who did solid work, and who charged VERY reasonable prices. Her staging of the condo received many compliments from our friends and family. Thanks to Barbara's staging, and to the workmanship of the renovations, the condo sold the first day it went on the market. Barbara replied to our numerous emails in a consistently timely manner, regardless of the time of day or night. She never once made us feel as though we were imposing upon her time. By shouldering nearly all of the work that was involved, Barbara made the daunting task of selling my parents' home anything but. She earned every penny of her commission. Always professional and courteous, Barbara Michaluk has been a real pleasure to work with. We'd use her again without hesitation. Sincerely, Catherine and Jeff S.
Barbara sold our Condo in a very unfavorable market. She is very good at marketing and especially recommending and scheduling contractor repair work. She is a great communicator and keeps on top of all details. We worked well together to get the maximum price. We have bought or sold at least six homes in our lifetime - and Barbara is the best Real Estate Agent we ever had.
"After my initial meeting with Barbara, I knew I had found the agent I wanted to work with to sell my condo. Barbara clearly laid out the process and guided me along the way. She gave me great advice on how to present the condo for sale and was always available to answer my questions with quick and clear responses. She did extensive research and we worked together in coming up with a selling price. She provided beautiful marketing material that potential buyers had access to and also provided her own staging pieces which brought out the best in the condo. Barbara wasn’t pushy or demanding, but did keep me on task as to what needed to be done. She is a true professional and knows the real estate business and her market very well. My condo sold quickly and at a price that I was happy with. I would highly recommend Barbara and plan on using her again when the need arises.”
Barbara helped our family sell a condo in Silver Spring, MD in 2015. Her work for us was impeccable, she helped us to understand the value of the property, what we needed to do to get it ready so that it would deliver that value, and arranged to get the work done at a reasonable cost. Barbara oversaw the staging of the interior so that it presented at it's best for potential buyers. Barbara oversaw every aspect of the sale from soup to nuts, she coached us and helped us make decisions throughout the process. When work needed to be done by the condominium association she oversaw that as well. When neither my brother or I could attend the closing Barbara represented us. I recommend Barbara Michaluk very highly and without reservation to anyone needing the assistance of a real estate agent, she is exceptional . She is very knowledgeable, thoughtful, and extremely hard working. She provided a great service to our family and when we look back at this moment I am sure that we would not have done half as well, on many fronts, without her skill and leadership.
