Barbara has been selling homes on Galveston Island since 1999. Although she specializes in West End resort property, she also loves helping clients find historic homes in Galveston's unique neighborhoods. As a former Houstonian who bought her first home in Galveston as a weekend retreat, she easily identifies with the needs of second home buyers who want a tranquil escape.
Having twenty five years in the airline industry prior to becoming a Realtor®, Barbara understands the importance of customer service. She was among the top producers in West End real estate prior to joining Sand `N Sea Properties, and she credits her customer service training as a big part of her success.
Professional affiliations include: Galveston Association of Realtors®, Texas Association of Realtors® and National Association of Realtors®. She also is an Accredited Buyer's Representative and has taken many courses including those focused on selling luxury properties and staging homes. Barbara's degree is in sociology with a minor in history and Spanish.
Civic and social organizations include the Executive Career Women of Galveston where she has served as President; the Women’s Club in Jamaica Beach where she has served as Vice President; and the Dough Girls, a local investment club where she is currently a Vice President. She has also managed the Silk Purse Thrift Shop as an outreach volunteer and has been on the Board of Directors of the Diocese of Texas Episcopal Church Women.
Traveling is a special love for Barbara along with visiting museums, playing bridge, water aerobics and enjoying friends and neighbors. Most special to her is walking on the beach with her husband, Bob, a retired airline pilot and their German Shepherd, Talulah. Bob and Barbara have four children and six grandchildren scattered throughout the U.S.
Barbara's pledge is to make every transaction as smooth and as pleasant as possible while obtaining a very favorable transaction for her clients.
