Barbie was a pleasure to work with and an excellent realtor. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the market and was patient and helpful as we searched for the perfect home. She did a wonderful job during the negotiation process and helped guide us through the closing process. We would recommend Barbie to anyone looking for a realtor in the Chesapeake and surrounding areas.
Barbie is a fantastic realtor from start to finish. Quite frankly, she’s the best! She is professional and personable. Barbie is highly responsive as well as knowledgeable about the entire purchasing process. I would highly recommend her whether you are buying or selling. No wonder she’s a top Realtor!
As a repeat customer of Barbara's, we knew we were in good hands. Again, Barb made the process smooth and painless. She was one step ahead during both the sale of our house and the purchase of our dream home. She's warm, welcoming, professional, and great to tour houses with as she's full of great knowledge about the area and what goes into a remodel. This is valuable when you're comparing potential purchases or investing in your own home prior to a sale. Last, I'd like to state she's a far better negotiator than I, and we were thrilled to have her on our side.
She is an asset to her profession. Was very helpful preparing my house for sale. Always available when needed. Highly recommend. Home sold after 3 days on market with full price offer.
Barbie did an amazing job. She listed our home at the right price point, generated a ton of interest and a quick sale. We had to have some unexpected repairs done to the home to close the sale but had unfortunately already relocated to another state. Barbie lined up contractors, got estimates, oversaw the entire process for us and communicated with us as things moved along. We could not have done it without her. We felt exceptionally lucky to have chosen her as our realtor and would recommend her without hesitation.
I am an elderly widow and was anxious about the process of selling and buying a new home. Barbara walked me through the process step by step with amazing patience and kindness. Her knowledge was extensive in every area of buying and selling as well as moving in and out cleaning services, area businesses, utility hookups and professional and handyman services. She was a jack of all trades in knowledge. She will not fail you.
Chose Barbie! She is a delightful person and genuinely cares about her clients. She helped my husband and I close on our very first home during one of the most stressful times of the year, the holidays! We had our inspection the day after Thanksgiving, our final walk through the day after Christmas, our closing date changed multiple times, and she was there for all of it. She kept me calm and my eye on the prize. Even when it seemed like it would never happen. She was available all times of the day including weekend and nights. She answered all of my questions and was able to make other recommendations for fabulous people to work with to get to closing. Overall she gets a 10/10 in my book. Thank you for all you did for us, we couldn't be happier!
If you are looking for a realtor look no further you won’t find anyone better then Barbie! When we first contacted Barbie we were residing in another state and were not familiar with Virginia Beach or Chesapeake area, but after discussing our lifestyle with Barbie she was able to find us our new home. She made the process painless and easy. Always had great communication from day one to closing day. Would highly recommend!
Mrs. B was outstanding, she made me and my grandmother feel so important and helped us every step of the way. I was grateful to have a realtor as fantastic as her. I appreciated her truthfulness and guidance she gave us from day one.
Barbie is amazing! It was our first time buying and she made it so easy. She was thorough, friendly and helpful from the first moment. We found the perfect house and made it to closing without skipping a beat. If you are looking for a realtor that truly cares, extremely knowledgeable and will walk you through the entire process without letting you down – she is your person!
I couldn't have asked for a better agent to walk me through my first home buying experience. Barbie was more than happy to walk through any and all questions I had as well as provide insights which I did not even consider. She understood and worked with me on the concerns I had and was very transparent throughout the whole process. It was clear she had my best interests in mind. Barbie was incredibly diligent with her work on my purchase, as well as following through with the seller's agent to keep things on track. She kept me ahead of all my deadlines so the process was very smooth, as well as provided regular updates when any new information arose. Barbie has plenty of experience with military clients, and it shows. She understands the PCS process and the considerations involved. When I had to return to Florida for 2 more weeks after I put in an offer, she essentially handled everything in Virginia. I would personally refer any friend in Hampton Roads to her (military or civilian).
I cannot imagine going through the process we went through without Barbie’s guidance. From the very start she listened to our wishes, and knowing our circumstances were special she worked with us closely every step of the way. If you choose her to help aid you in your home purchase, she will not lead to wrong, she will help you and make sure you know exactly what to expect along the way. She continues to keep in touch, even long after closing. She’s more than an agent, she’s become someone very dear to my heart. I will always be thankful that we were lead to her during this process.
Barbie was such a pleasure to work with. Her quick replies, knowledge about the community, and confidence in negotiating, made our home buying experience seamless. I have already, and will continue to recommended her to anyone needing a realtor!
Barbie was exceptional with the whole process of finding our home and buying our home. She went above and beyond in every aspect. She was always available when needed and eager to help. We lived in another state during our home search and we couldn't always be present for walkthroughs. Barbie would Facetime us and keep us in the know. She always responded so quickly to any questions we had. She knew everything about every house we were interested in! I would highly recommend Barbara Summers! We are a long time military family and we move often. We have never worked with a more pleasant real estate agent that works so hard for her clients.
Extremely knowledgeable, handles all your questions or concerns in a timely manor! Even after closing she is still willing to help or assist with any questions or concerns with the purchase of your new home. Always on her game! Great realtor! Highly recommended.
In every way, Barbie Summers was the answer to our prayers! Her listening skills combined with her knowledge of the industry and specifically Hampton Roads area are priceless. You will be blessed by her talent
Our entire home buy experience was perfect! After providing Barbara with our purchase criteria she found the best houses to suit our needs and she stayed within our budget. Once we found a home that we were interested in she helped us every step of the way and made sure everything was completed on the sellers end. And not only did she make sure all things were taken care of, she made sure they were done correctly. Even after closing she is still working with us making sure that all outliers are being addressed and taken care of promptly. She was always courteous and professional and her experience speaks for itself. Unfortunately we can only give her five stars. She deserves more!
My husband and I will be eternally grateful to Barbie for the sale of our home. When we listed with Barbie, she asked “why has this house not sold” (we had it listed 3 other times over the past 10 years). She looked around our house and found a couple of minor problems which she fixed and a major problem (our neighbor’s backyard). This was a win-win situation, he could no longer do it himself, and she sold our home. We had already sold our house and were paying bills on two homes, so we needed to sell it quick. She brought us multiple offers in less than six weeks! From the beginning she took all the stress off of us. She gave us weekly updates, a plan of action for the following week, and let me know right away how showings went. She got us a full price offer in less than six weeks! She also has a team of professionals to handle any PICRA deficiencies, we did not have to lift a finger! If you want a no stress purchase or sale of your home, Barbie is the one to call. I could go on all day about why Barbara “Barbie” Summers is the most fabulous realtor!
Our experience with Barbara Summers was beyond exceptional. Her professionalism, honesty, knowledge and promptness was refreshing during this challenging time in our lives. She is personable, approachable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with her time. She answered every question and explained every form (we didn’t understand) and gave us guidance through the entire process. I would recommend Barbara to anyone considering buying a home in the Hampton Roads area, she made buying a house painless and exciting.
Barbie came highly recommended and because of that there was no reason for her to contact us to "sell her expertise" but she did anyway. We were immediately impressed by her because she was interested in what we wanted and stuck to it. We had a plan/timeline since we were PCSing from Guam during the holiday season and she made our plan work. She was knowledgeable about the business, the area we were looking in and knew other key players to put us in contact with that worked just as hard as she did! She showed us houses, took notes about what we liked and disliked and helped us make the best decision for our family! Barbie is now a permanent part of our family! Thanks for helping us find a house to make a home in VA!
In my opinion you could not find a better realtor. Barbie Summers is a first class act. She was informative, timely, knowledgeable, provided additional services with a great home inspector and closing agent. Hands down a true advocate to have buying or selling. I highly recommend her.
As a first time home buyer I feel blessed to have met Barbie Summers she took the time to answer all of my questions, was very timely with scheduling viewings and arriving for them. Barbie has surrounded herself with great people from the home inspector and the closing agent. I have to say she was a true advocate for me through the entire process. I highly recommend her.
Barbie was such a gem through the entire process! She was friendly, personable, knowledgeable, and professional. Her experience shines through with her knowledge of home values and local areas - she was spot on! She made sure that we were able to get the best bang for our buck while respectfully making sure we maintained our set budget! She answered all of our questions and was an extremely thorough and a hard worker. She stayed by our side, educated us, and walked us through each phase of the buying process. Barbie ROCKS!
Barbie was phenomenal and patient with us showing us all the houses we needed to see to find the one we liked the most. She has been quick in all communication and no matter what time or day it is she always responds and resolves any issues that arise. As a military member who was not local, we could not have completed our purchase with as much was if it was not for Barbie.
Barbara is very hard working, quick to respond, and is excellent on follow up. She is very knowledgeable about the industry as well as the area. I would definitely recommend her and use her again for real estate.
Barbie’s expertise and demeanor was so helpful throughout our entire process. She was a fantastic advisor, advocate, educator. She encouraged us with good advice but never pressured us. She helped us sell our home quickly, was so patient as we searched for our new home, and helped us with every single business aspects the sale of our prior home and purchase of our new one. She is the realtor you should choose!
Barbie was very friendly and great to work with. She went above and beyond for us, willing to help out in any way possible! If we are back in the area we will absolutely being contact Barbie again!
We had our home on the market for 6 months with no offers and contacted Barbie when our contract was up with another realtor, she was very honest and confident that she could sell. Between her marketing and open house our home sold in a little over a month. Barbie is very knowledgeable and has a passion for her job. She is amazing !
She's an excellent realtor, helped me to find a suitable home that meets my budget and needs. She is very knowledgable about type of homes in different locations. Highly recommended!!!
I just bought my 4th property and I used Barbie Summers for this purchase. I will never you anyone else. She was the best realtor I had ever dealt with. Keep up the good work Barbie. And thanks again.
From the beginning Barbie put her whole heart into helping us find our home. We had a few requests that made things a little harder but she took it in stride and took on the challenge, finding us a perfect home for our family. She knows the right places, people, businesses that will help the process of buying a home not sting so much and move along a little smoother. We highly recommend Barbie for your home buying search!!
We were able to find a newly listed home and placed an offer to purchase that was quickly accepted by the Sellers.
Barbie was very helpful in assisting with offer and purchasing process.
Barbie recently helped me and my wife buy a home in Norfolk, VA. This was my first time buying a home, and Barbie’s expertise and advice was invaluable. We came to her because we went to see a home in the neighborhood we were renting in and we absolutely fell in love with it. As first time buyers, we really had no clue of where to start and what important questions we needed answered before putting in an offer or deciding if a home was a good fit for us or not. We really wanted to find an agent we could trust, and I’m thankful that we did. Barbie helped us in every step of the process. She calmed us when we had fears and never once pressured us to make any moves when we were feeling unsure.
Barbie is a wonderful person to work with. She was very flexible and willing to work around our busy schedules. She is very knowledgeable and is able to provide sound advice, especially for a first time home buyers like us. Most importantly, Barbie really cared about us and this huge decision we were making in our lives. Can’t recommend her enough.
Barbie is amazing. She went above and beyond to make sure that i stayed informed about all steps. Her professionalism and timeliness are on point. With her help i was able to find the perfect home. She still checks in with me, even if the transaction is over. I highly recommend Barbie. Loved working with her!
We always knew that Barbara had our best interests at heart. She was a great listener, and was considerate of our specific needs. Barbara sold our home and assisted us in buying a new one, and both transactions were great.
We thank Barbie for shepherding us through the buying process of our first home. On both a professional and personal level, it’s been a pleasure.
Barbara is knowledgeable, understanding, honest, fun and extremely thorough. We were confident that she would take care of everything and communicate throughout the process and she did. We highly recommend Barbara!
Extremely professional, prompt, courteous, and an amazing communicator. Barbara was one step ahead of the entire process and stuck with us even after her job was finished. It's not just a sale with Barbara, it's a passion for selling your house and putting her clients in the house they deserve as smoothly as possible. If you need someone who can give meticulous attention to detail and be responsive to your needs then you aren't going to find one better than Barbara.
We had a great experience working with Barbie! I couldn’t believe how responsive she was to all my requests and questions, and she knew far more than I ever hoped to about the process of buying an investment property. She was always well prepared, responsive, patient, and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
