Helped me buy and sell homes
I have practiced law for more than 40 years, and during my career I have encountered hundreds of real estate professionals. Rarely have I dealt with a more competent real estate agent than Barb Imes. In a transaction where we were buyers, she aggressively acted to promote our interests, kept us well-informed, and paid attention to detail. There were no hitches. She's very good.

Helped me buy home
Barb helped me buy my first home in 2011. She surpassed all of my expectations of what a realtor does for a buyer. She stayed on top of details, kept the process moving, kept me informed at all times, and recommended other local professionals who have proven to be invaluable. When a small hiccup arose at closing, Barb was firm, professional, and proactive -- I was so glad I had a professional of her caliber on my side of the table. In addition, Barb is just a breath of fresh air to be around. Funny, smart, informed. Really, I can recommend her without a single reservation. Less ... More

Helped me buy home
We bought a house through her, she was VERY unproffesional! (making out with her boyfriend at a potential property we were viewing) She didn't suggest a single house to us and instead told us to look online and let her know what house we'd like to view. I will NEVER suggest her to anyone! Find someone else!!!!
Response fromBarbara Imes
Interesting ... I spend considerable amounts of time driving around with this first time buyer and her family, looking at many of the outlying areas for the perfect home that would fit their budget. The home eventually purchased was very unique. These first time homebuyers faced many challenges to qualify. To help, I paid for her first lender?s, when she moved to her second and had to redo it. I paid for the septic to be certified (and spent the better part of a day and far into the night (by headlights!) - alone with a metal detector and rod, looking for the septic cover - without a single acknowledgement or thank you - to get the report done on time. And making out with a boyfriend??? I'm a bit old for that!! But it's cute!! Sometimes I guess you do too much for younger buyers who have no appreciation. I'm saddened to read such a bizarre comment - but as always, wish her well. I'm confident I gave the same, superior service to her as I give to all my clients. Less ... More

Barb is extremely hardworking, very knowledgeable and has an exceptionally warm personality. My husband and I were both new to Fort Collins and first time home buyers. Barb was extremely patient with us as we explored many options before finding on our dream home. She was in our corner through the whole buying process and came to our closing despite having suffered family tragedy. In addition to being a committed and enthusiastic Realtor, Barb is also a wonderful tour guide and showed us all that the city and surrounding area has to offer. Many times I have caught myself reciting tidbits of information, that I learned from Barb, to my family when they visit. Less ... More

Barb takes the burden off of house hunting. As frustrating as house searching can be, Barb helped in giving us peace of mind; letting us know that finding the right house might not happen immediately but with patience and persistence we could find the home of our liking. Barb educated us in knowing about our decision on each house and its location. Be prepared to do "home" work. :-) Thanks Barb.... Sincerely, Larry

Barb was great at explaining the growth of Fort Collins over time and what each neighborhood was like. As a first time home-buyer, there were many aspects of the home-buying process that I wasn't clear on. Barb did a great job explaining the process. She was also a great negotiator and got us a great deal on our home!

Barb was an extremely valuable resource while trying to sell our house in a tough market. She did a great job advising us on the proper price point for our home while it was on the market. During the closing process, her connections in the area even helped speed through the buyer's financing when it got behind. Her client centered approach made selling a house in a tough market much less painful. Thanks again Barb!

Barb Imes is an outstanding realtor who is professional, honest, thorough, and has a great sense of humor. Barb loves her work and it is reflected in everything she does. If a person has real estate needs, in my opinion she is the best I have seen. We bought and sold a property with Barb and would highly recommend her to anyone that wants to be represented by a true professional real estate agent.

Barb was a lucky find for me I did not have an agent when I was looking for homes and called her number on a whim, and I'm happy that I did. Barb has extensive knowledge of the northern Colorado area and is extremely helpful. I am a first time home buyer and she made the whole process very easy. She also was able to give me other contacts for loan applications as well as people to assist through out the process and this was invaluable. I appreciate everything that she has done for me and would most certainly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. Less ... More

You will not find a better relocation expert than Barb Imes. It doesn't matter if you're moving across town or from across the country. Barb is an expert in all things Fort Collins (actually in all things Northern Colorado). She is not only an expert in local real estate but she also stays informed about everything important going on from public education to taxes. If you happen to ask her something she doesn't know, I guarantee that she will know where to find the answer for you. When purchasing my home, Barb showed me homes that were actually in my price range; she never pressured me to look at homes that she knew were $5-$10 more than I what I was willing to spend (as a lot of agents do). She was unbaised and honest about each neighborhood we looked at. The house I purchased with Barb was my 4th home purchase in 2 states. Barb is by far the most informed and professional real estate agent I've had the pleasure of working with. I highly recommend her for anyone interested in purchasing real estate from first time home buyers to investors. Less ... More

Barb was a wealth of information. My wife and I were first time home buyers and she made the process stress free and fun. Barb really knows the Northern Colorado area well and did a great job finding what we wanted. I recommend Barb for all of your real estate needs.
