Barb was born and raised in Fairfield County, Connecticut and earned a business degree in college.  Fourteen years ago she started working for the Ridgefield Board of Realtors, and then joined William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty as a Realtor in their Ridgefield office, where she has happily worked for the past decade.

A perennial award winner, Barb is a high-touch agent known for her extensive market knowledge and her unmatched devotion to clients. Her success is based primarily on positive referrals. She earns the respect of her clients by working tirelessly on their behalf and always offering candid advice.

Creativity and communication skills are strengths she draws on consistently.  Working alongside a close friend and professional stager for the past 15 years has helped her work seamlessly with sellers to prepare a home for the market and for buyers to see the potential of a home. And as part of her strategic marketing plan to promote properties, Barb frequently hosts "The Real Estate Minute" on a nationally syndicated radio program, which is aired in over 50 states.

Her love for the business and her home state emanates and is evident from the moment you meet her.

As an avid gardener, hiker, jogger, cook and lover of really good red wine, Barb keeps busy in her beautiful town of Ridgefield.

Reigning supreme... her family, who has taught her that making a home is one of the most important things you will do in life.  Mom to three grown children, all Ridgefield High School graduates, who still love to call Ridgefield their home.  And with Murphy, her Bernedoodle, and her husband Robert, they keep the fires warm for any and all visitors.  A quote from one of her favorite movies sums it up - “There’s no place like home”.

Alex Ritzcovan

Edaward Mayland

Barb Reiss is a fantastic realtor. She was very positive and upbeat and made the whole process go very smoothly. I would definitely recommend her.

Bridget Butler

Barb Reiss was amazing throughout this entire process! She came in with a perfect sales strategy, made sure the house looked its absolute best and then made the entire process incredibly smooth. When you sell for 6% over asking the numbers speak for themselves. I would 100% use her again to buy and sell real estate.

Chris Butler

Barbara Reiss provided first class professional support to us in the sale of our beloved Ridgefield 200 year old antique home. Her boundless energy, thoughtful guidance and counsel was provided always throughout the process from beautifully preparing our home for sale to a magazine ready to view state, to advising us during the multiple offer and bidding war process, to helping us above and beyond in co-ordination and clearing of the home for the new buyers move in (in our out-of-state absence), to keeping the ball rolling and everyone calm and collected until close. It was 17 days from listing to offer. An incredible and positive experience for which we will always be grateful. Quite simply, Barb is a true, five star professional and a really nice person to work with. Thank you!

Barb was a real resource in finding a house in Ridgefield. She was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful -- we very much appreciated her assistance.

Katherine Keane

My husband and I had the pleasure and good luck to have worked with Barbara Reiss in the recent sale of our home. Barb was with us every step of the way in our year-long transaction. Her professionalism and market knowledge guided us through the process from staging our home to negotiating and closing. She was always available and always had any market information we requested. In short, she supported us through what can be a long and emotional process with grace and a terrific knowledge of the market! We are so glad to have chosen her!

A. & J. McVeigh

Thank you for assisting us in our house purchase! I had a good feeling about it from the first time I saw it. Your professionalism really stands out. Thank you so much, and I hope to see you around town.
