Testimonials

Barbara is the consummate professional. She has tremendous knowledge of the housing market, has infinite patience , and takes the time to get to know her client and what he/she is seeking in a home. I found her to be first class in every respect and would recommend her to anyone seeking a top class realtor. 01/07/2018 - 5 of 5 star rating

Barbara Goetsch is personable, knowledgeable and very accommodating. She knows the shoreline communities well and what they have to offer. Barbara's showings were spot-on and no time was wasted looking at unsuitable properties. She tailors her showings based on the buyers wants and needs and never pushed her own agenda. She was honest with her showings; pointing out BOTH strengths and weaknesses of locations. She is experienced with the purchasing process and offered assistance willingly. Barbara responded rapidly to texts, emails and phone calls. My home buying experience was pleasant and stress-free and I would recommend her without hesitation. 01/06/2018 -5 of 5 star rating

Working with Barbara was an absolute pleasure. I cannot express in words how wonderful she was to us. Barbara made the process of purchasing our home nothing short of perfect. We had a very short time frame to relocate, and Barbara dedicated her time to ensure we found the best house for our family. We never felt that she rushed us; there was no pressure to buy a house for the sake of buying. It had to be right. We will always be grateful to her for her hard work, negotiating skills and dedication to our home purchase. 01/05/2018 - 5 of 5 star rating

Barbara worked with us on every aspect of our recent sale from listing, negotiations, inspection issues, more negotiations, and on to a successful closing. This was an unconventional property in a difficult market and every step of the way Barbara's local knowledge, attention to detail, patience and expertise got us to the finish line. This is the second property that she has listed and sold for us and we enthusiastically recommend her without hesitation. It was a pleasure to work with her. 12/31/2017 - 5 of 5 star rating

We echo all the praise from the previous reviewers. Barbara helped us sell a home in Clinton and purchase one in Guilford. From the very beginning, Barbara was professional, knowledgeable, responsive and patient. In addition to being an incredible real estate agent, Barbara is a warm and caring person. We cannot recommend her highly enough. 03/28/2016 – 5 of 5 star rating

Susan b Coleman

We would recommend Barbara highly! Barbara was a terrific resource who guided us with professionalism, with grace and, through one of the worst winters on record, with patience. She took on all the burdens of the entire process , from market assessment through listing, showings, lengthy negotiations and close, making our lives significantly easier in what is always a hectic time in one's life. She knows the market very well, stays connected with sellers and buyers, and she works very hard at her job! And she is such a wonderful person we just love being around her! 06/30/2015 -5 of 5 star rating

Tom and Nancy Patton

Barbara Goetsch is an exceptional real estate agent who is also a joy to work with. She is an excellent listener who really gets to know her clients well and this makes her a trusted advisor in selecting a home. Barbara never pushed us to make a hasty decision; rather, she patiently educated us about the area and helped us weigh both the advantages and disadvantages of each home we looked at until we found the perfect property for our lifestyle and budget. I highly recommend Barbara to both buyers and sellers alike. 04/13/2015 - 5 of 5 star rating

Rebecca Armstrong

I just read some of the reviews -- they say it all!!! If you are selling your home and are fortunate enough to get Barbara Goetsch as a realtor, consider yourself lucky. In a very difficult market, Barb came through with results. She is professional, honest and above all a pleasure to work with. Don't even waste your time looking for someone else -- Barbara Goetsch is the only realtor to have! 03/19/2015 - 5 of 5 star rating

Barbara listens, figures out what kind of homes would work, and then shows great patience waiting for the right one to come along. Not reluctant to say "no that wouldn't work!" 5 of 5 star rating

Barbara helped my husband and I find our home in Madison. She was patient, knowledgeable and easy to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling their shoreline home! 03/14/2015 – 5 of 5 star rating

We did not know Barbara until she was recommended to us by another broker in the William Pitt organization, but we were delighted to work with her from the moment we met her. She is outgoing, lively, great sense of humor, but very serious about her work. We made her earn her commission by our lack of knowledge of the local area (we were relocating from Pennsylvania), which meant that she had to save us from the waste of time that Google searches can lead you to. Once we found the property we loved she was a tremendous help in negotiating our price -- even though my wife and I are both seasoned attorneys. And the closing proceeded without a hitch, thanks to her attention and experience. We can enthusiastically recommend her. 03/09/2015 - 5 of 5 star rating

chub wilcox

I would like to give Barbara Goetsch my strongest recommendation. She did a great job for us in a difficult market. She is easy to talk to, listens well, responds quickly and is available when needed. We were 3 sellers with strong emotions and very different personalities trying to sell a property that had been in the family for 50 years. Barbara navigated potentially thorny situations with professional ease. We were very fortunate to have her for our agent. 03/08/2015 – 5 of 5 star rating

Barbara knows what it takes to sell a house. She came in with a professional photographer to take pictures. The final result of the slide show was outstanding. These pictures helped to sell my house in record time. The rooms were bright and airy. The pictures encouraged people to come in person to see for themselves what the house had to offer. I had given Barbara a list of improvements that were made to the house and the property. She gave each interested person a copy of the improvements. I am in the process of selling a condo in Florida. All I can say I wish Barbara was here. She could teach realtors here a thing or two. KUDOS TO BARBARA 02/11/2015 - 5 of 5 star rating

If you want to sell your house, Barbara is the agent you need. She is very easy to work with and was always available to answer our questions. Barbara is patient and professional. She helped us through a very stressful process! 02/07/2015 - 5 of 5 star rating

saph7106

Barbara became our trusted advisor during our search process. She really took the time to get to know us and knew that we had limited opportunities to view properties so she was very efficient with our appointment schedules and in the end, she knew exactly the kind of home we were looking for. She was knowledgeable about the area and was so helpful with all aspts of the process. Even after the closing, she was such a huge help in helping us find various vendors and contractors to work on projects in the house. Barbara puts her all into her job and we genuinely could count on her to be responsive to our questions 100% of the time! 02/04/2015 - 5 of 5 star rating

Barbara must have shown me a dozen houses before we finally found "the one." In all that time she was patient, very well informed and quick to respond to voicemails and emails. I have already referred a few friends to her. 01/29/2015 - 5 of 5 star rating

Barbara sold a couple of my properties and helped us with some different property purchases in the last several years. She is very knowledgeable and sweet and I wouldn't use anyone else. I've recommended her to a friend recently and they had Barbara list their house and it sold quickly due to her effective selling techniques. She is very motivated and gets things done efficiently and in a timely matter. 01/29/2015 - 5 of 5 star rating

Barbara sold my house for me. She was professional, knowledgeable, a good listener and enjoyable to work with. I imagine it is always difficult to mange a client's expectations of what their house is worth and how quickly it will sell. Barbara excelled at this. I highly recommend her as an agent - for both sell or buy a house. 01/28/2015 - 5 of 5 star rating

c wharton8

Barbara very professionally assisted us in selling our home (of 30 years) in Guilford, CT. The final contract was accepted by both parties within a week of putting the house on the market in February. Barbara worked with us in January and helped us prepare the home for the February listing. She pointed out enhancements, got a photographer, worked with our lawyer, and investigated several current listings to target a realistic price point. In addition to being professional, she was indeed enjoyable to work with and it felt as if she was an extended family member. We moved away, but still try to stay in touch. 01/28/2015 - 5 of 5 star rating

Barbara has helped us both sell our home and buy our new home. Her calm yet assertive approach has helped us navigate complicated deals. She is flexible, professional and accommodating to all of your needs. I would highly recommend her!! 01/28/2015 - 5 of 5 star rating

Kara Capobianco

If ever I buy or sell another home, I hope Barbara Goetsch will be my agent again. Thorough, amiable, knowledgeable, Barbara is a tireless worker, responsive to the smallest question, readily available, and very pleasant to work with. Her expertise and familiarity with the subtle differences of the shoreline towns make her an invaluable resource for individuals new to the area. Moreover, no matter how busy she is--and she is busy--she conveys the sense that she has all the time in the world just for you. Quite a talent. My husband and I highly recommend her. 01/28/2015 - 5 of 5 star rating

user14263157

We were introduced to Barbara through the realtor selling our home in Massachusetts. From the start Barbara listened to what we wanted and throughout our buying process continued to understand our goals. We bought one house with her help, but we told her that while it was adequate, it was not exactly what we wanted. When another property came up she contacted us immediately and when we asked "is it really worth our time" she quickly answered "yes". We bought the home of our dreams within a week. We now rent the first house. Barbara was easy to work with, responsive, and very knowledgeable of the neighborhoods and the market. We strongly recommend her. 01/28/2015 - 5 of 5 star rating
