Testimonials for Barbara-Jo Roberts Berberi, MA, PSA, TRC - Greater Clearwater Florida Residential Real Estate Professional
The Holidays have been incredible in our new home! And we would have never scored this hidden gem without you! You really honed in on what and where we wanted to buy. We had many "must-haves" on our search list: size, pool, flooring, schools, yard, proximity to my parents' condo (i.e. the "perfect-fit" condo you found for my parents just months before!). Thank you for your patience with those! Also complicating our search were our schedules; Doug and I both work full time and our kids had school/sports/lessons. It was tough to squeeze in time to go look at houses. Somehow you managed to accommodate us every time! Never did we feel pressured or rushed. Your wealth of experience was crucial not only in the search, but also when it came time for the inspection and then closing. We always felt comfortable asking you questions and voicing our concerns throughout the process. You mostly had the information at hand but when you didn't, you researched and got back to us immediately. Now we have this gorgeous home, great location, amazing yard--all at a fantastic price that you were able to negotiate. To top it off, you mediated the sale of our old house for a respectable margin.
Moving is an emotional, daunting adventure. Thank you so much for guiding us through it with such quiet confidence, kindness and expertise!
Happy 2017 to you and your family,
I want to thank you for the excellent service you provided as my realtor. Your responsiveness to my needs, coupled with a thorough approach to all aspects of the home-buying process, really helped to make the experience stress free.
I would definitely recommend you to a friend or family member!
I have been using Barbara for my real estate transactions since 2013. She is one of the most up to date, well educated and knowledgeable agents I have ever had. She's passionate about what she does and never makes you feel like you are wasting her time. I have done two purchases now with her and the last one took quite some time to find just that perfect property and I couldn't have been more pleased with her input and desire to find this for me!!! Being from Canada always added a bit more planning to viewings and closings. She did what it took to make me feel comfortable. Whether it was going that extra mile with a new construction home and taking pictures each week and sending them to me so I never felt out of touch with the progress or taking pictures of places she viewed for me and sending them to me to line up for when I got down. Always that extra mile !!! I have to say she is extremely patient when dealing with difficult sellers !!! She's not just my real estate lady but a good friend !!!

You are a top-notch realtor! I am so grateful that I hooked up with you online. Whenever, there was a glitch you were on top of it, right down to the closing. Thank you for all of your help and understanding, especially with my particular limitations.

As a first time home buyer, Barbara made the process so easy and she was always available when I had any questions. Her showing schedule was flexible and she was always willing to meet up when I had available time. Barbara’s knowledge of the Palm Harbor area and school system was exactly what I needed. Thank you Barbara for all the time you spent with me finding the perfect home for me and my daughter!

We know Barbara-Jo since last winter (2014). From the very beginning, she earned our trust (important to us, as Canadians looking for our retirement home) with her professionalism and our hearts with her dedication. She went above and beyond any expectations we had. For us, Barbara-Jo started as a real estate agent, and continues as a friend.

My wife and I have worked with Barbara-Jo for several years and have always been pleased with her professional service. Barbara-Jo makes sure that the entire transaction process runs smoothly and that all paperwork is submitted immediately. In our opinion, she is the best real estate professional you can work with.

Barbara Jo was a great help in finding our new house in Palm Harbor, FL. I’m sure we ran her ragged but she was constantly smiling and helping us through the frustrating search for our new home. We have recommended her to several of our friends and hope they choose her to help them, too.
Christine Embrey, Palm Harbor FL04/30/2014
We needed a Realtor with an intimate knowledge of the Crystal Beach/ Ozona area due to a relocation from out of state. We found Barbara online and could not have chosen a better Realtor. She went above and beyond in helping us find the right home for our family.

I met Barbara-Jo & her daughter Corinna some years ago in Franconia/Germany. Since I was looking for a condo and this seems the perfect time, I contacted her. Purchasing property needs first and foremost trust, even more so when purchasing in a foreign country. I can highly recommend her expertise, gained through many years in the real estate business. Her
knowledge of the whole area as well as her willingness to help and advise throughout the entire process.
Sincere thanks, Barbara, for all your help!!
Und für alle meine Deutsch sprechenden Landsleute, ich kann Ihnen Barbara-Jo nur wärmstens empfehlen; sie versteht den Markt in und auswendig, “übersetzt” die Wünsche ihrer Kunden perfekt in die Möglichkeiten des Marktes, war für meine Belange stets äußerst hilfreich und fair….. für mich ist Barbara und ihre Tochter die erste Adresse für Wohneigentum in Pinellas County!!
Ganz herzlichen Dank, Barbara, für alle Beratung, Hilfe und Unterstützung!
