    • "Patient, down to earth, and responsive. Really enjoyed working with Bari, Elena, and team!I met Bari at an open house and really appreciated her calm /cool /collected demeanor. That happened to be at the very beginning of my search and I liked how approachable and friendly she was. Over the course of a few more showings, she asked great questions of me and the other listing agents, and I learned I could really trust and value her guidance in the home buying process. I stopped looking for a while, and Bari and Elena were very patient until I was ready. They acted fast and helped me secure a condo that is really unique in the neighborhood I wanted to be in. Couldn't have done it without their help and quick action. I HIGHLY recommend Bari and Elena!"

One day :-) Happy clients, to say the least - thanks Bari!"

From the first time we met, she listened to and understood my requirements for a new home, my style preferences, location preferences, and so on.
