It's important to know oneself when choosing a realtor. Knowing that my wife and I would be buyers that need a patient and highly responsive agent, we met with several experienced realtors before choosing Barbara Carter. We chose Barbara in part because of her excellent reputation and in part because of her extraordinary knowledge of the mid-Hudson Valley market. But most of all, we just knew that Barbara had the warm and conscientious personality we could work with. In every way, Barbara exceeded our expectations.
Ours was a two year process to find the right home. We started with one idea and ended with a very different one. Dozens of properties were visited. Throughout the process, Barbara was remarkably patient, carefully listening to and responding to our evolving criteria. She was quick to bring newly listed properties to our attention. If we had questions about a property, she was quick to get us answers. Property after property, Barbara never wavered.
When we found what we wanted, a number of complexities unfolded. Most were unexpected and many would have rattled a less experienced realtor. It is here that a buyer wants a real pro, and Barbara skillfully guided us through the details of a very challenging 6 month offer-to-closing process. Often she did much more for us than her professional duties required.
From the first day we started looking for a home to the day of closing, Barbara never missed a beat. She is a total professional .
Having Barbara Carter as your Realtor is equivalent to the ultimate professional, successful, and pleasurable real estate experience. My house was on the market with another agency for over a year and no offers were achieved. When Barbara became my agent; a marketing report was generated within days, proper pricing was achieved, and three bids were received within the first week. From the first days of showing to the actual closing on the property, Barbara was brilliant and enthusiastic about all matters related to the sale of my home. Her attention to detail, knowledge of the market conditions, willingness to share her wisdom, high standard of ethics, and generosity of spirit are the best I have ever experienced. Barbara Carter receives my absolute highest level of recommendation.
It was our great pleasure working with Barbara.Barbara is very professional, informative,honest hard working and all the good qualities.She will get you a beautiful home for your money in a nice environment.
Barbara had found a dream home for me and my husband in a short period of time.She did not only sold us this house she chose a home that she likes for herself too. We fell in love with the house and made our decision the first time we saw it.I would highly recomend Barbara she is the BEST.Thanks again Barbara.
Barbara has helped my family navigate two purchases in the Mid-Hudson area. She is very responsive and knowledgeable in her field, and I would recommend her without reservation. In addition to the actual real estate transactions, she also has a wide network of related service providers such as property maintenance specialists, contractors, inspectors, etc., and has helped us find good matches for our needs.
My husband and I were the typical inexperienced firs-time home buyers. Barbara made the process a breeze. She is very knowledgeable and personable. Barbara was very attentive and answered every email or phone call in a timely manner. She went above and beyond the call of duty. I would use her again in a heartbeat and recommend her highly!

Barbara Carter was such a pleasure to deal with and went above and beyond to help us sell our home. She helped us every step of the way throughout the entire process.
We would highly recommend Barbara to anyone looking to buy or sell and we would definitely contact her again if the need arose.
I have known Barbara Carter for over 20 years both personally and professionally. I just successfully purchased my first house and could not have done it without her. She helped me through every step of the process to make it as understandable and straight forward as possible. Barbara is so knowledgeable about the area, real estate, the market, and the process. She is incredibly committed to the process and always keeps communication channels open. Barbara turned what could have been a very frustrating experience into an enjoyable one.

I have known Barbara Carter for over 14 years personally and professionally. Barbara is very knowledgeable and an expert in realty ensuring a smooth transaction for her clients making a pleasurable experience from start to finish. Home buying can be a very scary experience, yet Barbara finds a home that suits her clients desires as well as their budget. I strongly recommend Barbara for all I know who are selling or buying a home. Barbara is the best I have seen with marketing a home as well as the Hudson Valley using the latest technology and marketing websites. Reading Barbara's blogs and seeing all she does for her clients, no wonder she is the best at what she does.
Barbara is a knowledable agent and was very committed to us throughout the selling process. She was attentive to our needs and very responsive to any request that we made of her. She maintained good communication with us and was very helpful beyond her regular responsibilities, especially with our our-of-state purchase. We highly recommend her.
I can't praise Barbara enough for her tireless effort in bringing a difficult transaction to a successful close. Our vacant rental property was a challenge, but Barbara rose to the occasion. I got favorable feedback from the Bank regarding her knowledge of short sales and her professional manner in their dealings with her.
Now that this sale is behind us, we have listed another of our properties with Barbara and are confident that we are in good hands. We would recommend Barbara to anyone who wants one of the best in the business to handle their real estate needs.
Barbara is a professional who works tirelessly to get the deal done. Her excellent temperament helps to smooth the way.

we really didn't know that we even needed a buyer's agent until we met Barbara who toughts us what was real advocacy was about and how much of a difference it makes to have someone on your side whose main concern is you. Kind of like having a friend who is your realtor because you know she's on your side and wants the best for you....no matter what that is. And if you don't really know what it is that you want, her patience, experience and knowledge will guide you through the process of educating yourself so that you can figure that out."
Unlike most realtors, she is more than patient, responsive, attentive, advocative, honest, and of high moral fiber... bottom line-she REALLY cares about you
Ms. Carter has made the whole process of looking for a new home for my family a pleasure! She has been extremely patient with us and truly is working with us in trying to find the perfect home for us!
My daughter is on disability and is approved for Section 8. Barbara has worked tirelessly to help her
find a clean 2 bed apartment in a family neighborhood of New Paltz. She has made enumerable suggestions and recommendations. She offers constructive, knowledgeable advice, and is always available for a kind word of encouragement. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to buy, sell. or rent. Barbara's a pleasure to deal with.
Very professional, honest, and extremely hard working. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for real estate in Ulster County.
Dear Barbara, We are writing to give you our heartfelt thanks. It is because of all your hard work and good advice that we have been approved. We can not thank you enough. Your knowledge, expertise and good nature has guided us through quite the stormy sea. It has been very hectic, and we are preparing for the closing. Thank you so very much for all that you have done for our family. We are all looking forward to a new life up in beautiful Ulster County. Thank you for making it possible.

Barbara was pleasure to work with. She worked with us for over a year to find the right investment property. She listened to what we were looking for and made recommendations that matched our interests. When we finally found the right property she was more than willing to negotiate with the seller to get us the best price. If you are looking for an agent in this area that is willing to go the extra mile, work for your best interest and will not push you, we would recommend Barbara Carter.

Barbara is exceptional at her work. She was helpful, friendly, and available when needed. She helped us find our home and was with us through each hurdle for support. Checking in through emails was great! I will truly miss the home buying process for only one reason, Barbara. She was and is absolutely wonderful.
I'm a real estate developer and have teamed up with Barbara for purchasing and selling my properties. If you decide to contact her, you'll quickly find that she has dedicated her time to develop her knowledge of the Hudson Valley Market. You'll also find she has educated herself with many new innovative ways of communicating with her clients if it's preferred. I imagine that many of today's clients such as myself prefer to sometimes use things such as electronic document signing, text messaging, and of course e-mail. Barbara is fantastic and continues to be passionate about her career choice. Which is being one of the best real estate agents for all of us! -Forever Young Innovations LLC- Rob Schaller Jr, Pres

Late last year it became apparent that my step mother with her multiple health issues would not be coming back home. We needed to sell her home quickly because the cost of assisted living is very expensive and her savings was dwindling fast. Barbara came to the rescue back in Dec 2013 and understood the need to sell the house to fund my step mom's health and living costs. Barbara worked very hard and we were able to close on the house in just four months during the worst time (winter) to try to sell a house. We will always be indebted to Barbara. Also it was great to correspond with Barbara using email, signing documents with docusign and being alerted to house showings with a iPhone app she provided me with.
Barbara was always accessible and responded quickly to my emails to her. I would recommend Barbara Carter for anyone either buying or selling a
Barbara did a great job for us. I have known her for a long time and that made this process so much easier. I think switching to Quinn Realty Group in the middle of our contract was not the best situation, but she was always willing to do what we asked and listened to our concerns about price, length of time on the market and offered many strategies to show our house in the best way. She kept reminding us to think positive and the right buyer will come along. I would recommend Barbara Carter for anyone looking to buy a home in Highland since she knows the community very well.
Barbara was exactly what we needed. She was patient with us. She never tried to pressure us into anything. She never once tried to convince us to look outside of our budget or desired area. We had a long home search due to some constraints we have. Barbara stayed with us the entire time and never tried to pressure us into something we were not comfortable with.
"I can not stress enough how comforting caring Barbara is, while providing professional relationship throughout our entire process. She was very knowledgable and was able to not only help us get a great home to raise our little girl in, she was able to set us up with a local bank which helped make financing fast and pain free. I have recommended Barbara to all my local family and friends. Barbara was focused on our needs and what was a good fit for our family rather than just looking to make a sale. We are very greatful for everything she has done for us. "
"barbara carter was consistently pleasant and responsive. she has a friendly, pleasant manner and is very knowledgeable, patient and professional. "
Barbara was excellent and helpful in every way. She was patient as we had specific demands. She knows the area and is a seasoned professional. We would highly recommend her

I would recommend Barbara Carter to anyone buying or selling a home, she was always there to answer questions. If she did not have the answer she found out for us. Barbara gave me more information than our lawyer did. Barbara has a wonderful personality and she was so patient and compassionate with my mother and myself. Thank you again Barbara!
