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

Barbara is an exceptional realtor. She is conscientious and hardworking. More importantly she connects with a buyer so that all options are considered in what can be a daunting process. She is a wonderful and fair person with outstanding insight and we recommend her highly. 12/13/2017 - 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

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

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

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

Barbara has been involved in three sale interactions for us. Two she was the buyers (us) agent and one the listing (us) agent. She is a detective when it comes to looking into property details and past history that may or could interrupt a smooth closing (buyers agent). She does her utmost to list a house at an honest price and assist you in readying your house to sell (listing agent). She is prompt to return calls, on time, and knowledgeable in township history, local businesses, and school district. She is an honest, hard working, business woman....who also knows the clockwork of a house. We will use her again when the time comes. 2/7/2018 5 of 5 Star Rating

Barbara was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable throughout our home sale. Despite time constraints and challenging market conditions, she was able to differentiate our house from the competition, show it at its best, and attract a quality buyer. In particular, the home staging and photos were fantastic! Additionally, she went above and beyond in guiding us through the home sale process as we were also simultaneously managing a complicated relocation. Regardless of how stressed we felt, Barbara maintained a calm, positive outlook and kept us moving forward- from initial showings, to responding to inspection, to the day of closing when our buyers forgot to bring their check (!!). We would highly recommend Barbara to anyone looking for a realtor in the shoreline area. 2/7/2018 5 of 5 Star Rating

Barbara Goetsch is friendly, efficient, skilled, and extraordinarily helpful. She is very easy to work with. Splendid! She sold my house and at my suggestion rented a house for a neighbor. I wouldn't go to anyone else if I wanted to sell a house. 2/7/2018 5 of 5 Star Rating

Barbara helped us find our dream home in Guilford, CT. We were living in Boston and were drawn to Guilford for all the town has to offer. Barbara was amazing to work with and was instrumental in facilitating a smooth move from MA to CT with two toddlers just before the Holiday Season. We contacted her in the spring of 2017 and moved into our new home before the end of fall. She was extremely knowledgeable about the local real estate market and only showed us houses that met our specific criteria. She was very responsive whenever we had questions and helped with every aspect of the transaction from the home inspection to home owners insurance. She worked diligently to get answers from the sellers and their realtor whenever information was needed and questions arose. I would highly recommend her for buyer or seller realtor services. 2/7/2018 5 of 5 Star Rating

We used Barbara to sell our house in Madison, before our cross country move to California. We were extremely happy in our decision to work with her. She was extremely knowledgeable and also just a wonderful person to be around. She definitely has a ton of experience selling homes, and was very methodical in her approach. We don't have anything but great things to say about her. 2/7/2018 5 of 5 Star Rating

Barbara is professional, pleasant, responsive, reliable, meticulous and overall it was a pleasure having her as our realtor. I would give Barbara the highest recommendation to anyone looking for a realtor. She went above and beyond in her duties selling our house, especially after we had already moved out to a new state, and I wish we can use her in the new state to purchase our next house. 2/7/2018 5 of 5 Star

Barbara is one of the most professional and personable agents we have met. She sold our very unique contemporary home for us last year and did an excellent job. She is very knowledgeable about the market and current trends. She answered all of our many questions and concerns always that same day! She was unflappable and polite throughout the whole experience. We felt very confident in her ability to handle everything and she came through with flying colors. 2/7/2018 5 of 5 Star Rating

I can't say enough positive things about Barbara, she always goes the extra mile. I highly recommend her as an Agent. For me, she was both my buying & selling Agent on my condo. 7 years ago we looked at many condos on the Shoreline until I found the one I loved, we put an offer in and we were done, seamless through the entire process. 7 years later I needed to sell my condo as I was moving out of state. She gave me sound advice on small renovations that needed to be done in order to get the best price in the shortest time. Again seamless process: advertisements, professional photos, to her commitment with open houses all leading to a closing in 3.5 months in the winter and even coming out ahead! Thanks Barbara!! Anyone is lucky to have you represent them. 2/7/2018 5 of 5 Star Rating

Venessa D.

Barbara is a warm and friendly person yet always portrayed a highly professional manner throughout our purchasing experience. She was a staunch representative for us (the buyer) during the entire process, always advocating and negotiating with the seller's representative to insure that both the buyers (us) and the seller were satisfied by the closing date. . If any question arose during the process, Barbara either knew the answer or found the answer for us within 24 hours. Purchasing a house can be a daunting and at times a difficult process but with Barbara as our representative, it was actually a very pleasant experience. Due to her diligence when working for us, Barbara helped us find our new home which has turned out to be a perfect match for us! 2/7/2018 5 of 5 Star Rating

Barbara is not only very knowledgeable and through when selling and buying a home, she is patient and kind. She knows when to stay neutral vs. give an opinion. We spent three years + looking for a new home, and after changing our mind at the last minute on many occasions - she continued to treat us with respect and treated each new adventure as a clean slate. I not only appreciated her professionalism, I learned from her and understand the importance of not holding a grudge and/or judgement towards people's personal decision. I would recommend her to any buyer or seller in a 100 mile radius. 2/7/2018 5 of 5 Star Rating

Selling a home and moving is an emotional roller coaster and an agent like Barbara makes the process smooth. She has a laid back calm demeanor and keeps everyone moving forward. She is dependable, punctual, professional and really fun to work with. 2/7/2018 5 of 5 Star Rating

Kathy M.

"Barbara’s tenacity and flexibility, shifting sales strategies as the market required, made the sale of our home a positive experience. We were very pleased with the care and respect she took with our home during all showings and open houses. She provided feedback in a timely manner and was always available for consultation. Her strong collaborative relationships with other area agents lead us to a sale at a good price and in locating the furnished rental that allowed us to offer a quick closing." 2/15/2018 5 of 5 Star Rating
