Barbara Averell

  • Barbara listed and sold my home

      Barb was friendly, communicative, and helpful throughout the process, working with us remotely to sell our house. I would recommend her.

    • Barbara listed and sold my home

        Barb was our Realtor when we recently sold our home. Not only did the home sell within 3 days, but Barb went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly both before we listed and throughout the process before closing. Barb is friendly, knowledgeable, patient and kept us up to date during every step. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone buying or selling their home. She has a great personality and works tirelessly to make sure all the details are taken care of and her clients are satisfied. We give her 10 stars!

      • Barbara listed and sold my home

          I can't say enough good things about Barb. She was both my buyer's and seller's agent. From our initial meeting to my home purchase and sale a year later, Barb kept me sane through the crazy process. She was extremely responsive and patient as we checked out new homes on the market. I appreciated how she didn't rush me and how invested she was in helping me find the right house, not just any house. When I finally found the home of my dreams, she guided me through the offer process and helped me craft an offer that won out over many others (without sacrificing my goals at the same time in order to get it accepted.) During my home selling journey, she was once again extremely attentive and a calming presence during some periods of anxiety on my end. She hired an amazing photographer who did a fantastic job photographing my home and during the one and only weekend I had showings, we ended up having 15 each day!! By Monday, we had 11 offers! As a single mom, buying and selling a house was a stressful thing in itself and I don't know if I could have done it without her. I highly recommend Barb to anyone looking for a top notch agent.

        • Barbara listed, but didn't sell, my home

            Bought new home and sold home using Barb as my Realtor. Cannot say enough good things about Barb. She was so attentive and helpful in all aspects of the listing to final closing. She is detailed oriented and made the whole process a very reassuring and a very positive experience.

          • I just wanted to say after dealing with several different purchasing and selling agents. You by far have been the best I've ever worked with. Thanks again for everything! If we ever buy a place back home we will for sure look you up.

            - Tammy Bartley
          • Barb was absolutely wonderful to work with going through the process of the lot/new home construction. From the beginning to the end, she continued to follow up on everything. Her outstanding hard work and professionalism showed when there was going to be a possible delay in the mortgage paperwork. Barb reached out to the mortgage lender and moved things right along. We truly appreciate her help and expertise through the process!

            - Lauren
          • I thought it would be a challenge to sell our home. It was an updated older home on an acre lot with a large pool. Barb was very good at marketing the house to attract the right buyer. She used all of her outlets to ensure it was seen by as many home buyers as possible. We sold our house in one week above the listing price! She was also very helpful and responsive with all our questions. Our closing was flawless! Highly recommended.

          • Barb made the process of selling our home easy! From step one through the closing, she was always in touch and kept us in the loop. Barb goes above and beyond, and we highly recommend her!

            - The Ecks
          • I first met Barb as she was showing me a home for my daughter and her family. I liked her enthusiasm so even though we didn't purchase that home, I tucked her name away in case I needed a realtor in the future. One year later I found myself ready to sell a small home and remembered my prior dealing with Barb. I contacted her for a meeting. I was worried that it was small, and in a difficult lot for some people, but again I found Barb very enthusiastic. She worked with me and made some recommendations about improvements that I executed on. The home sold in less than two months!

            - T Domville
          • We listed our house with Barb after it had been on the market for a year.We were very impressed with her marketing, professionalism, and personable nature. She stayed in constant communication throughout the process and negotiated a sell within a month. What a joy to work with-we would and have highly recommended her.

            - J Pierce
          • Barb made the process of buying my first home as a sole owner go very smoothly. She came highly recommended from a co-worker and lived up to every bit of that recommendation! From the first meeting through closing she was readily available, succeeded in both understanding and meeting my needs, and was an excellent source of information about the area. The whole experience was stress-free and enjoyable. I highly recommend Barb!

            - D McNally
          • Barb was a pleasure to have assisting me with my home purchase last year. She was very responsive to all my requests and went above and beyond in her efforts to help me find the right home. I would highly recommend her to anyone in the home buying, or selling, process

            - D Dziubek
          • We have worked with Barb for several years and she has helped us both buy and sell our homes. She is very knowledgeable and dedicated. We highly recommend her.

            - L Seitz
          • very easy to work with, great ideas, excellent follow-up. Home sold the first day on the market. She did an awesome job with the pictures and getting the home online.

            - J Michel
          • barb, helped make this process fun, her attitude remained positive no matter what obstacle we encountered. her empirical knowledge from years of experience was ever so helpful in making the entire adventure of buying our own home a pleasant process. we thoroughly enjoyed working with her & would highly recommend her.

          • Barb is the BEST realtor we've ever worked with. We trusted her from the first time we met and she helped us build our home in Pittsburgh. When we were looking she didn't hover, but instead spoke succinctly about the model home, knew the high points, asked appropriate questions and then left us to discover the great amenities. She was also there throughout the building process and able to answer questions - or find out the answer - promptly. She 's upfront, pleasant, professional and above all extremely honest. We can't say enough good things about her!

            - T Blanchette
          • Barb was great to work with. Its been 30-years since we've purchased a home and Barb was there to guide us all the way. We thought we knew exactly what we wanted (many times) and Barb was there to provide her professional opinion as well as ask us the right questions to help us not let our emotions get the best of us while still allowing emotions to play a part in our search. We looked at many styles of homes, new construction, ranches, split levels, and more. Barb helped us learn about what we wanted and were looking for each step of the way, ultimately finding a home we absolutely love. Barb is very professional yet extremely friendly and very easy to work with. Barb also has a tremendous amount of industry knowledge and contacts which helped us along the way and even now that we have purchased the home. With regard to negotiations, Barb was great. Barb helped us differentiate between the important issues (mechanical, roof, etc.) and the cosmetic or non serious items. Guiding us through this process along with the many comps she obtained for us really helped us understand the value of the home and our offer. What we really liked about Barb's negotiation skills is that she understood both the seller's and buyer's point of view which we believe was key in us securing our new home. - We strongly recommend Barb Averell if you are looking to purchase or sell your home.

          • Barb was an excellent agent. She was always willing to help. She never made me feel pressured. She always provided valuable insight. I really felt comfortable every step of the way. Would definitely recommend her to anyway. Her knowledge of the market proved to be invaluable in a sellers market.

            - B Grom
          • Barb has helped us buy and sell several homes over the years. She is a total professional! She has such knowledge of the of the marketplace and housing trends. She is always aware of the clients wishes and goals, and works tirelessly to find just the right home to fit those goals. Barb is totally accessible when needed and quickly responds to calls, emails or texts. Her personally is always positive and enthusiastic, and she makes the whole home buying/selling process enjoyable and stress free. Barb is truly a wonderful real estate agent and amazing to work with!

            - C Taylor
          • Barb was FANTASTIC helping me find a home. I would highly recommend her for all home buying/selling needs. She was very professional and always checked in at every step of the process - she even reached out after I purchased my home to remind me about the home warranty included in the sale. I plan to live in my home for a very long time, but I would absolutely contact Barb if my situation changed and I needed to move again.

            - D Burke
          • Barb was fantastic. She really understood the market, the area that my house was located and developed a marketing strategy that helped sell my home in 5 weeks and the house went into the market on November 5. If you are selling a home in the North Hills area I would recommend you speak with Barb.

            - J DeFranco
          • It was a pleasure working with Barb. She kept us up to date on every aspect of the process. She always got back to us promptly and explained everything extensively. This was the second time I hired Barb for my real estate needs. I would highly recommend Barb!

            - T Bartley
          • Barb was great to work with! She was nice, patient, and her attention to detail was so helpful! We felt comfortable and confident throughout the whole process, even with this being our first house purchase. We highly recommend Barb to anyone looking for a new home.

            - E Ritchey
          • Barb was truly a pleasure to work with, she was very well organized and led us thru a process that we were unfamiliar with. Barb understood that we were selling a home because our Father had passed away and the care and concern she showed to us will always be remembered .She worked hard for her client and was very fair with us. The best way to describe Barb is she is a true professional.

            - C Armstrong
          • Barb was fantastic! She was very patient with me as we looked at many houses. She is very knowledgeable about the entire purchase process from start to finish.
