I moved myself several years ago so I truly understand the stress of the entire process from start to finish! I love being in a condo style home now. I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my 3 daughters whether it is in NYC, Rhode Island or at home in Putnam Valley. We all also enjoy our time boating on Lake Mahopac with family & friends.
I had a very hard time selling my house with another realtor. Barbara impressed me with a plan that made sense, professional photos, hard work, consistent updates and a successful sale. She would be my first and only recommendation for an agent.

We cannot thank Barbara enough for both her understanding and support in securing the sale of the property. Trying to sell a house comes with challenges but trying to secure a sale, when you are 3,000miles away is impossible. without support from Barbara and specifically her attention to detail, not to mention continuously keeping us informed on developments.

Barbara was an exceptional agent from Day 1! She was extremely knowledgeable on the market which allowed us to get the highest value for our home. She was responsive and so helpful while we were already relocated trying to sell our home from afar. We would highly recommend!

If you are looking to buy or sell in Putnam Valley Barbara should be your agent. For our sale she came to the table on day 1 having done all her homework about our house and property. She helped us set a fair competitive price and we ultimately got more than our asking price. She was always there for us and helped negotiate, what could have been a problem, a smooth sale. Barbara was fantastic !

Barbara assisted me with the sale of my Fathers house in Putnam Valley, NY. She is extremely professional and guided me thru the sales process. Her extensive knowledge and experience resulted in maximizing the sales price as well as quickly resulting in sale. During the contracting process she did whatever was neccessary saving me the hassle of a long trip to get things in order. I have dealt with many real estate professionals but none came close to the excellent sales, mktg, service and support as Barbara. I highly recommend her for your real estate needs !!!

We recently sold our property in Putnam Valley with Barbara's help. Her hands-on approach, attention to details, guidance and responsiveness made all the difference. We know since we used a different broker and could not sell the property for over a year, with Barbara it took a few months. We highly recommend her.

My wife Joann and I can't say enough about Barbara's, guidance, enthusiasm, and ability in listing and selling Joanns condo. Barbara was constantly updating us on showings and giving feedback in a very timely manner and never hesitated to take our calls and never made us feel like we were bothering her or asking stupid questions. It was a true pleasure dealing with Barbara and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a seamless problem free real estate transaction.

Barbara Sawin was a major advocate for myself and my husband and patiently helped up find the perfect home over the course of several years. She never pressured us (as buyers) and her knowledge and professional skill helped to ensure that the home we finally bought was perfect. She is an asset for both buyers and sellers.

Barbara Sawin was the dream agent for us. She suggested an asking price for our home that was better than that suggested by another highly rated agent and our home sold for the asking price. She handled the many details and difficulties of our long distance sale with patience and was generous with her time & effort. Our house sale involved a relocation company and a great deal of paperwork for Barbara, which she handled expertly and quickly. We cannot imagine a better of nicer agent.

Barbara was extremely accessible, guided us and answered all our questions with calming confidence. With 19 showings in one week it was chaotic but having her on our side made a potential situation an organized, positive experience. We were constantly informed on all feedback from potential buyers and what our next steps should be.

I had to put my parents home on the market after my mother's passing. After meeting with a few realtors I decided to work with Barbara. Best decision I could have made!! Very professional and knowledgeable in all area's of real estate as well as the local area and the process. Barbara went well above what any other realtor would have done to help me through the process.

We had such an amazing experience with Barbara! She showed us so many homes and when we found the right one for us she worked so hard to make it happen! She fought for us and was with us every step of the way. I honestly can't say enough about her! She is amazing at what she does, she truly cares about her clients and it shows.
