Barbara helped my husband and I buy our first home in Greenwich. We were new to the area and a bit nervous about buying our first home. Barbara did an amazing job of showing us several different types of homes in a few different areas which made deciding which house to buy so much easier because we felt we knew what all of our options were. A year and a half later, my husband took a new job so we needed to sell our house. Barbara did an unbelievable amount of work helping us get our house ready for listing. In the end, we sold our house quicker than we expceted and we were thrilled with the selling price. Most of the credit goes to Barbara because she was very involved in the staging, open houses and showings. Everytime we have friends moving to the area we always give them Barbara's number and tell them they won't find a harder working, more thorough real estate agent.

Finding a home is never easy. And finding the perfect antique home makes it that much harder. The only way to guarantee success is to find the right real estate agent. And I can't say enough about Barbara Cioffari. Her attention to detail, ability to guide and listen, made finding our home not only a painless process but a fun one. Her knowledge of the area, her insight into old homes and her contacts when it came time for repairs and decorating were invaluable. I can't imagine having done it without her. She's absolutely the best!

Many Realtors exude a "sales" approach to the real estate market...Barbara thankfully never treated my move as a "sale", but rather a part of a journey, That would be the key to my adjusting to a new and different location. After very little feedback, extraordinary patience with me and my priorities, she helped me find the perfect house- which quickly became a lovely home. She was the very first contact I had in a brand new area, and was critical in my transition. I appreciate her, and every minute she dedicated to me-making me feel with every viewing that the decision was as important to her as it was to me.
She was simply awesome and remains someone whose opinion I trust, and who surely has not handled my last transaction.
It has been the absolute best experience working with Barbara as our real estate agent over the last 10 months. We were so impressed with how quickly she picked up on our taste and how she focused on the style of the house and property she knew we would be interested in. No matter how many days we spent together we always felt she was steering us in the right direction, looking out for our best interests and never wasting our time. Her endless patience with us was remarkable, she never made us feel even slightly pressured to buy a house, rather she was always a true professional showing us properties and acting as a sounding board and trusted advisor for any questions and concerns we may have had.
Without hesitation, we will happily refer anyone we know interested in buying or selling property in Connecticut only to Barbara.

Barbara is an excellent real estate agent who had our best interest in mind. Due to her hard work, the end result was we quickly recieved multiple offers and had a sales price over our asking price. We felt grateful to have her as our agent.
