When we first met Barbra to see if she would be the right agent for us to sell our home we were so impressed with her knowledge of real estate she came so prepared she already knew how she would market our home the correct price point she had a plan for success and she hit every target she made what would have been a stressful time for us such a easy and pleasurable experience she handled everything for us I don't know all I know is that Barbara is by far the most professional and caring person in the real estate business and that you would definitely want on your side. We look forward to working with Barbara on our next real estate transaction Less ... More

Barbara Zorn is hands down, the best realtor in Brevard County. She met with us and told us exactly the process we would go through, and gave us inexpensive tips to make our home look more attractive since it was an old home and needed a lot of repair. She helped us in every step of the way, responsive to our calls and many questions. She sold our home and got us exactly what we were asking for. The closing was a breeze. The whole process was flawless and quite frankly I am still in shock that selling the home was that easy. She no doubt knows her stuff and is the best we have ever worked with! Less ... More

Lauren-thank you so much for the positive review. I loved selling your Cocoa Beach waterfront vacation home-you guys were so nice to work with! Having a cash buyer didn't hurt either. Thanks again for your business!

We could not be more pleased with the results we had by hiring Barbara!! We put our home on the market December 1, 2014 and had a signed contract December 5th!!! Her recommendations were top notch. We followed her suggestions and sold the house in a week!! She met and exceeded all of our expectations!! We have recommended Barbara to two other people since!!! She is the best!!!

What a refreshing agent to work with. She showed us houses and right away realized we have always lived in brand new homes. Barbara took us to the builders homes and we are very intrigued and considering building in the Brevard County area. Without Barbara I don't think we would have known the nuances of the local builders. One builder is like buying a Mercedes which holds its value not just because of the name but also because the house is like a car which will still be running after 100,000 miles. Another builders home looked the same but the slab was not as thick, the faucets do not have a life time warranty and all kinds of factors that we are still considering. Barbara is not pushy but she gets to the details we needed so we can make a wise buying decision Less ... More

There is really not enough I can say about Barbara. She has been helping me to relocate. I have lived in the same area my whole life so this is a big move for me. Barbara recommended I didn't buy right away. This would have been a quick sale for her but she was honest with me and told me she felt I should rent for a little while and get to know the areas before making such a big decision. She has had to work twice as much and she will still only make one sale but in the end she was right. Now that I know the area better I will be choosing a different city than I initially asked her for. Go with Barbara - she works hard for her money-lol! Less ... More

Barbara Zorn has a proven sales record that is second to none in Brevard County. That is due to her being far superior in local knowledge, the selling/buying process, marketing, negotiation and being responsive to her clients. When you top that off with Barbara's down to earth personality and ease to work with - you have the complete package. There is no reason not to use the most successful and experienced Real Estate Agent in Brevard County. After prior experience selling and buying 3 other homes I can honestly say that working with Barbara made things easier, faster, more profitable and by far a much more pleasant experience. Do yourself a favor - call Barbara Zorn. Less ... More

She helped sell our condo. We live out of town and she handled everything even changing furniture around. I am so glad I looked at her reviews and called her she was amazing. Her knowledge and experience made it a very easy transition she did it all. Would use her again if I were to purchase or sell a property.

Helped us through a difficult military relocation. I have worked with many agents in the past but none who were there for us like Barbara- I highly recommend her!
Response fromBarbara Zorn
Mike-I love your family. Working with people like you is why I love my job. Trust me it is all part of the service-helping you get temporary housing, getting emergency dentist appointments, someone to clean and even Tracy the nanny who is now being called Grammy are things I love to help with. I'm sure there will be many more recommendations or assistance you might need so you know where to find me and my office. The important thing like I told you is when the dust settles I want you to love living here and be able to call this place home! Thanks for choosing me to help make it happen. Less ... More

Had a great experience with her. She was so efficient. She asked me questions and told me answers to questions that I didn't even know I should be asking. I honestly felt like she was looking out for me the whole way through the sales process.
Response fromBarbara Zorn
Katherine: I love working with people whether they are first time Sellers or seasoned experts. Educating someone on the sales process is one of the most important parts of my job and is just one of the many tools that helps me put more money in my Sellers pocket. Thanks for helping me to be ranked #21 for total sales in the US for 2013 and thank you for the really nice review-Barbara

Job Tesh talks about Barbara Zorn on the radio so I thought I would call her to sell my house. She told me what I needed to do sell my house then she helped me find people to get things done so I could make more money. Once the home went on the market it sold quick!
Response fromBarbara Zorn
Sue and Tom: I am so glad that my marketing is working and you found me on the radio thanks to John Tesh. Selling your home was a team effort and I couldn't have asked for a nicer team to work with. It makes my job easy when I have such nice Sellers. Isn't it amazing how much extra money we were able to make you thanks to some paint and a little sprucing here and there? Thanks to some great handy people it was relatively painless too! Thanks again for such a nice review-Barbara

Awesome negotiating skills. She saved us a ton of money because she read the buyers. She told us the buyers needed the last word so we planned this in our negotiation and we ended up with a higher price than we expected. She is really that good at what she does. To this day the Buyer probably thinks they got an awesome deal, lol!

Barbara is highly motivated. She spent 3 hours talking to us the first time my wife and I met with her. Even though our house had already been in MLS she still wanted to see everything for herself and know everything possible about the house. She spent so much more time understanding our house-it showed on the ideas she presented us to sell our home. The photos, brochures and internet were so professional I am sure that is why our home sold in 2 weeks. She is a great agent- I wish she had been the first agent we hired. Less ... More

Just a darling! She has spent so much time with us. We thought we wanted a vacation house but ended up wanting a condo. Barbara understands money and exchange rates and how timing can make such a difference when our Canadian dollar goes down or up. My husband really enjoyed talking to her because he said she really understands not just houses but economics. We have narrowed it to 1 of 2 complexes but there has been none for sale since we finally figured out what we want. Barbara has been patient showing us places, sending us emails and answering tons of questions. Less ... More

I was listening to the radio and heard an ad for Barbara Zorn. I was honestly skeptical and she was out of town when I called the office but I wasn't quite ready so I met with her the following week. It turns out she was at a convention and when she met with me she showed me this new video she was planning on using that she had just learned at the convention she was at. She had so much animation when she described her marketing-it is obvious she loves her job. I was selling my parents home and it sold for more than my brothers and I expected to get. The zillow estimate was low and Barbara explained that my parents home was unique and it did not fit the cookie cutter estimating software. Barbara sold the house within 60 days and then I ended up buying myself a small condo. Barbara was easy to work with. She had some great ideas when we were negotiating-my brothers and I would have given away repair money but Barbara said hold firm and it worked. Trust her she really cares. Less ... More

Barbara has been helping us with our relocation to Melbourne Florida. She has been so patient as we try to learn the new area. After having her drive us around several times we decided to rent a furnished place for a little while but we will definitely be buying from Barbara
Response fromBarbara Zorn
Brian, thanks for the kind words. I love working with people who are relocating to our area and I honestly enjoyed showing off this area that I call home. Considering how quick they needed you to start your new job I think you made a wise decision to enjoy your "vacation (temporary) home" as the kids call it so you have some time to look around. Thanks again

Barbara was not in when I called so Lynn from her office met me at the house a couple hours after I called. That house was a dump. A couple days later Lynn called and said Barbara had another one coming on the market in that neighborhood. I hit it off with the lady that owned it so she sold it to me with Barbara and Lynn's help. I had the house under contract before anyone else heard about the house. I have nothing but kudos to say.

Barbara was fun to talk to right from the start. She is a statistics guru who keeps track of the market and honestly knows what is happening in her area. She follows a lot of economists but the neat thing is she takes all of her knowledge and presented it to me and my wife in an easy to understand format. Because of her knowledge we felt we were not just buying a house but also making a wise investment. She showed us where to sell our home at based on facts and figures. Barbara's facts and figures eased our mind and made selling and buying a comfortable process Less ... More

My experience with Ms. Zorn from listing my condo, to showing and the final sale could not have been more professional. She had to deal with many different people, and age groups, yet she always maintained her cheerful disposition, while focusing on all details and concerns of the transaction. I would highly recommend Ms. Zorn for all of your Real Estate needs.

Barbara is so nice she has shown us homes on our 2 house hunting trips to Florida. We are being relocated by my husband's company & she has helped so many details from schools for the kids, soccer clubs to helping me a great tennis club. She spends time making sure we are going to love satellite beach & we haven't even purchased a home. I will update this review right now we want Lansing Island or Tortoise Island

Barbara is a firecracker with a ton of energy. We told her we had 1 day to fly in and look at a list of properties we had picked off the internet. She read us quickly and realized we wanted something different than we picked so she had people in her office scrambling to set up appointments for a different set of homes & she found our perfect vacation home in 1 day!

Barbara was one of several agents we contacted on the internet- we picked agents based on their reputation, length of time in real estate, awards, etc. What we found was some of those agents have big egos & spend their whole time telling you how great they are. Barbara kept asking what did we want- I even remember her asking is there anything else you need from me, or is there anything else I can do for you? It was such a nice touch

We were searching for a Cocoa Beach condo to spend part of the year in Florida and the rest of the year up north. This was the first time we had bought a condo- we were looking for low maintenance fees. Barbara explained that there is a lot more to look for. Some condos have low monthly fees but you get fees every time they need a new roof or major maintenance. There's a lot of other things to look out for regarding insurance and financing, even if you are paying cash. We are glad we found Barbara Zorn Less ... More

Barbara may be fine is you're trying to sell -- in a seller's market -- but as a prospective buyer, she was unresponsive to several queries about her listing. She gets a ZERO for responsiveness. Can't judge her on other criteria because she was too unprofessional to return messages

Barbara Zorn did everything in her power to make things work....and she did! Her knowledge of the local real estate market is impressive enough, but she knows how to translate that knowledge into genuine vaue for her sellers. But that's not all. Barbara finishes with as much energy as she starts with. We had a leaky roof and the buyer could not get a mortgage unless the roof was repaired. We, the sellers, couldn't afford to put on new roof. Barbara worked tirelessly to keep the buyer and us talking, compromising, and eventually closing on the home. Now the buyer and we are both so happy. Thanks Barbara! I'd be proud to recommend your services to anyone looking to sell....or buy. Bill & Rene' Less ... More

After 8 agents over 3 years Barbara Zorn sold my house & she didn't drop the price which is what everyone else kept trying to do. She started by asking me what were the buyers saying is why they weren't buying my house. I have a riverfront house and the big question is whether there was room for a pool in the backyard. All of the agents & buyers were told yes but buyers always asked every time they came to the house. What Barbara did is she had a pool company do drawings with what the house/yard would look like with a pool and these large drawings sat on the kitchen counter. She also had them attached as a photo on all of her websites & said room for a pool! The other thing buyers had questioned is how to place furniture in my family room which is large and has lots of doorways and a fireplace which is why I probably never got around to putting furniture in this room. It would have cost a lot of money to buy furniture for this room just to help the house sell. I was moving into a condo so it would have been furniture that I did not need. What Barbara did is have someone take photos of the room then digitally furniture was placed in the room. She had the room decorated 5 different ways so Buyers could see this room with furniture that hopefully fit their tastes. These were photos that were on the websites and then she had them enlarged to poster size and put them in the family room so people could see the room decorated when they visited my house. Barbara is really great at what she does. She thinks outside of the box and has some amazing marketing tools. I cannot say enough good things about her and would recommend her highly. Trust me I tried many of the "top agents" in Brevard County and am glad I listed to Glenn Beck and went with Barbara Zorn. Less ... More

Barbara Zorn listed our Florida Merritt Island Home in March 2011 and we closed in November 2011. Barbara was able to short sale the house in a depressed market in spite of the final shuttle launch and the 7000+ Space Coast layoffs. Barbara provided professional service in getting a qualified buyer and having the 1st and 2nd mortgages discharged. We had to leave the area to find employment but when we come back we would definitely employ Barbara again.
