We highly recommend Barbara Snyder from Caldwell Banker for any and all of your real estate needs. She was absolutely tremendous in helping us sell our condo and purchase our forever home. She made the sale and purchase process as stress free as possible. Barbara's recommendations for service personnel were excellent. She always made us feel as if we were her top priority.

Barbara is so fun to work with. She made the process very easy and comfortable. She is very professional. She really paid attention to details and made some really good suggestions which led us to selling our home in a reasonable amount of time. What I liked about her the most was she was easy to talk to, she was not a smooth-talker - very real, smart and devoted to her customers. I would highly recommend her.

Barbara was wonderful to work with throughout the process of buying my home. She was with me every step of the way, ensuring that all of my questions were answered and all details were attended to. She made sure I felt comfortable at every turn, and she worked tireless to take care of the things that needed to be done. Buying a home can be very stressful these days, and you need someone excellent in your corner to help navigate the process. Barbara makes it all so much easier. I highly recommend her. Less ... More

Barbara provided expert advice combined with local knowledge to enable us to sell our home quickly and at a reasonable price at a time when the market seemed very dry. Although we received interest from multiple buyers, there was only one sincere buyer and Barbara's advice, to work that deal rather than leave the home on MLS in the hope for a better price, proved to be the best decision. Because the buyer offer came in very quickly, it was tempting to wait for another offer. The details are too long to describe here so I'll simply say that there was no doubt in our minds that Barbara's advice was spot on. Additionally, Barbara is a very nice person who is easy to work with and very thorough (we had a tax situation requiring coordination of multiple family member signatures and contract approvals, etc.) Barbara's recommendation for an attorney was also accepted and it worked out very well in every respect. Finally, Barbara was very sensitive to our elderly parents home situation making them, and all family members, feel very comfortable through what could have been a stressful process. Less ... More

Barbara is just simply the best! She was very patient with us in house hunting with 3 small children. Her communication was always very prompt and she was honest with any questions we had. We didn't have the easiest sellers but she was always there to advocate for us. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone - in fact we already have passed her name along to friends :)

I am presently involved in my fifth real estate transaction, spanning over eight years, with Barbara as my representative. I am confident that this, too, will result in as satisfactory an experience as the previous four. Barbara is the ultimate sales professional, displaying an extensive knowledge of the specific markets, legal and financial requirements and a dogged determination to bring 'the deal' to a successful conclusion. She is most generous with her time and has never shown any personal frustration, no matter how difficult the problem. I never hesitate to recommend her and have had nothing but positive experiences with industry related professionals that she has, in turn, recommended. I'm glad to say the she is my exclusive real estate agent. Less ... More

Barbara Snyder helped me sell my home and buy another, smoothing the way throughout the entire process. She took the time to understand my needs and goals, asked thoughtful questions, and provided valuable insights about what to look for and what to expect. She knows the local area very well and she's personable as well as professional. On a scale of 1 to 5, she's a 6 because she goes the extra mile for her clients. Highly recommended.

Barbara is the consummate professional in a field where professionalism is often lacking. She never ever failed to look after our best interests and responded immediately to any concerns we shared or questioned. Barbara is a caring, sensitive, highly intelligent person and represents her clients with these skills. I can think of no one Who would better serve your interest in any real estate matters. We are proud to have worked with Barbara Snyder. We consider her both an advocate and a friend.

We consider ourselves very lucky to have had Barbara recommended to us to help us sell our Newtown home in preparation for retiring to Vermont. She easily earned five stars for local knowledge, process expertise, responsiveness, and negotiation skills. We were also well-served by her personal experience with remodeling, and her contacts with local contractors. All recommended contractors, especially for radon mitigation of air and water, were excellent. She did a great job of providing just the right kind and amount of guidance and support. Barbara would give advice, then stand completely back to let us do what we wanted with it. Barbara was a great person to have gotten to know! Less ... More

I worked with Barbara Snyder while buying my home as a foreclosure. Buying a foreclosure is very stressful, but Barbara was great. She returned our calls in a prompt manner, and updated us even if she had not heard any new news!! I highly recommend anyone using Barbara to buy their next home. She is knowledgeable and made our home buying experience flow smoothly.

Barbara is extremely professional and a wonderful individual. She was able to navigate through the various hurdles that are a part of the industry today. She took the time to understand who we were and our goals as a seller. She put forth the extra effort required to sell a house in today's market. She is easy to work with and will be my first call next time I have a realtor need.

As a first time home owner, Barbara was the perfect fit. She was able to relate, understand and keep our goals at heart. She had knowledge along with a positive outlook to make our experience stress-free. Not only would I use her again, I would refer friends and family. She was great addition to our team and we are looking forward to keeping her as a friend. We can not thank her enough for all she has done! She really is a wonderful person!

Barbara does what it takes to get your house sold. She helps from the very beginning with giving tips as to how the house should look or showing. She maintained excellent communications throughout the process. She guided me on the new regulations for CO detectors and radon. She is dedicated ad professional.

Barbara was a pleasure to work with and proved to be an excellent choice to meet our relocation needs. She worked through assessment, pricing, photography and open house logistics quickly. Barbara also has tremendous work ethic and is candid in conversation. She gave an honest assessment of our house, the area and where we needed to be on price. If we ever move back into the area, Barbara will be the first person that we call.

Barbara is an extremely knowledgeable, honest, and hardworking realtor, as well as an overall wonderful person. I am so thankful we chose her as our realtor to sell our property and buy a new home. She worked tirelessly on our behalf for months. Her communication skills are one of her best qualities, as she would respond via email, text or call almost immediately for every question or issue. She is a pleasure to work with, always pleasant, and very considerate of others. With every issue that came up, I was grateful to have her in our corner. Her lovely personality combined with years of experience and intelligence make her an awesome realtor and now a lifelong friend! Less ... More

- Barbara is very knowledgeable about the local real estate market and helped us a great deal in deciding what updates were needed in our house before listing. She also provided us with great contacts to get the job done quickly and cost effectively. It was important to us that she could help us present our house to best advantage. She and her photographer took excellent pictures and videos and she prepared a great video tour. - Barbara was very professional and responsive during the time she helped us prepare, list, and sell our house. We were very happy with her suggested list price which resulted in 3 offers the first week on the market and a selling price above list price. She was very supportive during contract negotiations, inspections, and the preparations for closing. - We interviewed 3 highly regarded local real estate agents and felt immediately that Barbara had the best attitude and ability. We were right. We highly recommend her to anyone who is thinking of selling a house. ? Less ... More

Barbara went above and beyond in her effort to find a suitable home for me. She has a terrific understanding of the local real estate market as well all of the various home systems (e.g. heating, cooling, septic etc) which helped a great deal in our negotiation. Throughout the process, she was always available to discuss potential properties and advise on the pros and cons. She is not just a realtor but a confidant and a great friend!

It was a stressful transaction on both sides: a buyer in the middle of a divorce and a purchase of a short-sale home. With the help of Barbara, I was able to sell my home and negotiate a rent to own agreement to secure my new home. Barbara helped to secure a creative solution to a challenging set of circumstances.

We had a deal that had many moving parts and everything needed to happen just right in order for the deal to work. Barbara helped facilitate this. She was able to negotiate a deal with the builders of our house that worked for everyone. Without her ability to negotiate the deal we would not have been able to move forward. Without Barbara's expertise we would not be in the house we are in today.

Barbara went way beyond the call of duty in helping me through a very complex and often difficult situation and negotiation with the purchase of my property. She was tireless in her efforts to provide me with all the information I needed to make decisions, and made herself available basically 24/7 for any question or issue I had. Besides having decades of experience, and incredible wisdom to offer, she also gave me personal support and encouragement when things got really tough. Although Barbara is an extremely busy broker, with a lot of personal demands as well, she truly made me feel like I was her only client. She is very intelligent, has great instincts, and a huge heart, and she can find the humor when you really need it! I hope I will never need another real estate broker, since I plan to be in my new home forever, but if I do, there would be no other broker I would even consider. Less ... More

I am a first-time homebuyer who worked with Barbara after connecting with her by chance b/c she was the listing agent on the 1st house I looked at. After meeting her, I knew I wanted to work with her. Her knowledge of the local area and real-estate in general was excellent. She really took the time to get to know me and understand what I was looking for. Hope to work with her again on my next home.

Barbara is a professional and caring realtor. She was always available to meet and speak with us at anytime. She recommended suggestions to make on our house to help it be appealing to buyers. We bought a house that Barbara had a listing for and was so impressed by her hard work that we asked her to help sell our house. We got to know her quite well. I would highly recommend her as a realtor. She makes things happen!

Barbara handled a lengthy and complicated negotiation for me, always in a professional manner while others were not. She was especially attentive to the myriad of tiny details and spent time and drove distances to make sure I had no worries. I would say she went above and beyond the call of duty for me and I will never forget how easy she made a difficult situation. I would very highly recommend Barbara as your realtor. I have bought and sold 16 houses in 35 years and Barbara is the best of any of the realtors I used. Less ... More

Barbara was most professional with the initial survey and preparation of our home for proper showing from the first week of signing her on. Most important was the proper selection of interested buyers. She selected those families who were looking in our price range, house size and property layout. Barbara displayed knowledge of house functionality, local taxes, school systems, and property and house maintenance. She would accommodate the buyers' schedules for showing the house regardless of weather, (some buyers, including the one who bought the house came out in snowstorms), weekday or holiday. Barbara's expertise at price negotiation and setting realistic offers kept buyers interest and the final price at closing was fair and equitable for us. Passing papers was efficient and seamless. Her honesty and knowledge gave both us and the buyers confidence that we were getting the best settlement. Less ... More

Barbara sold several houses of our friends in addition to our home. She is not only a real estate agent, she really cares about her clients and does her very best to make a challenging experience less difficult because of her compassionate support and superior professionalism. We probably would not be living in our lovely condo without all of her help. She even gave us the name of a mover who was terrific, and the inspector was very thorough, and now we will be using an insulating firm she told us about (she always gave us several choices). We have not been disappointed with any of them. I hope that Barbara will always be in our lives as a friend. I think of her when I look around our home and are very grateful she was our agent. I continue to recommend her to any of our friends who are thinking of moving. Less ... More
