The Jean Family

We have only the highest praise and recommendation for Daphne Barbas.  At the time that we were looking for a house, we were out of state, only making limited visits to Massachusetts. Even though we did much of our research of the area online, Daphne took the time to explore all of our house choices and “scouted” them for us. She gave us honest, detailed and sincere feedback of the properties that was based on our best interests.  When it came time for us to visit the properties, Daphne was a trooper transporting our entire family to multiple different homes to make sure our children had the opportunity to give their opinions of our “forever home”.  We relied on her expertise of the area and her judgment of what homes were of good value and structure.  We never felt pressured to make any decision without truly contemplating it within our family.

Daphne’s comforting smile and gentle spirit complements her strengths in negotiations.  Her attention to detail was also appreciated during this transition of our family.  All responses to our questions and concerns were answered in a timely manner.  Daphne is a lot of fun to be with and makes everyone around her feel very comfortable.  This meant that the home searching process was actually quite fun!

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Daphne Barbas to any person who is looking to buy or sell a home, as well as seek her service in any of our future real estate transactions.

Rev. and Mrs. Theodore Toppses

Working with Daphne has been an absolute joy. Buying a new house is both an exciting and scary time — there are few decisions in life as important as committing to purchase a house. Daphne listened to our list of needs and wants and worked hard to find the perfect fit for our family. As the details of our search changed, she redirected without a problem, always adjusting to what would work best for us. When we found the house we loved, she made sure it didn’t slip away by offering recommendations that made the impact we needed to have our offer accepted. She has been actively involved in every step of the process, guiding us seamlessly through the inspection, purchase and sale agreement, and closing processes and has taken much of the stress off of our shoulders. We are thrilled with our new home and so thankful to Daphne for all of her hard work!
