Client Quotes

2018 Simonne

Barbara helped me purchase a not-yet built home in Almonte. This was my first new build purchase so I was very unsure about a lot of things but with Barbara representing me, she got all of my questions and concerns answered by the builder.

She also offered great advice on upgrades that she thought I would find helpful such as an extra deep countertop for my kitchen island and a 95% efficiency furnace.

My home has taken longer to finish due to unforeseen bad weather and such but I’ve had Barbara’s support and advice from the moment she became my realtor until well after I was settled in my new home.  Her experience, knowledge, and advice were invaluable and I will be eternally grateful to her.  If you are looking for an experienced realtor who genuinely cares about her clients, Barbara is the agent for you!

2018 Maggie & Mike

I have known Barbara Long for over 35 years. When she became a Realtor, we thought we would use her services in 2011 to help us to sell our home. 24 hours later, our house was sold! At the same time she helped us to find our home outside of town. She listened to our needs and plans and showed us appropriate places in our price range.  We are so happy in our new community.

It was not a difficult decision, then, to ask Barbara to assist us once again in 2018 as we sold yet another property. Barbara gave us excellent advice, but also listened to our concerns and to our opinions. After only 11 days on the market, our property sold at very close to our asking price.

Barbara’s strengths lie in having a pulse on the market, advising home owners on what to do to make their property more marketable, and clearly communicating at every step of the process.

I highly recommend Barbara as a realtor.

2017 Chantelle & Sebastien

I chose Barbara, the ‘yogi-realtor’ because of the unique support she could offer me through the stress of selling and buying a home. I felt safe knowing Barbara is a realtor driven by conscience and dedicated to client service. Her creative marketing plan for my condo paid off with a multiple offer situation. In choosing our ‘forever home,’ Barbara helped us figure out what we wanted. She made sure both members of our couple were equally heard and valued in decision-making. Honest, knowledgable, incredibly hard-working and enjoyable company, Barbara gracefully guided us every step of the way – no matter how many steps there were!

2017 Aileen

Thank you for helping me find my home this year. You made my experience as a first time home buyer a really positive one. I didn’t know much about the process of purchasing a house, such as the assessments required, the home inspections, and paperwork needed. You helped supply the names of qualified individuals, this saved me a lot of time so that I could focus more on other matters. You were diligent and very informative and I really appreciated the follow ups that you did. Mostly, I appreciated that you helped liaise for me while I was transitioning from Winnipeg back to Ottawa. I was not able to be physically present during a large portion of the initial purchase and you took the time to meet with contractors and help me obtain quotes, this was beyond amazing; I am forever grateful. Your eye to detail, especially when negotiating a deal, really was instrumental in helping me to get my first home at a reasonable price. Your help and suggestions were invaluable to me.

Thank you so much for all you have done, I would recommend your services to future home buyers and will definitely be contacting you in the future when I am ready to sell and move again.

2017 Linda

Barbara helped me find a great home in Katimavik this year.

I had a very clear idea about the location and what features were important to me and Barbara listened to my needs and wants and then helped me find a great home in Katimavik.

What impressed me most about Barbara was that she was always available to me throughout the buying process; ready to answer all of my questions and responding quickly to my requests to view properties and suggesting ones I hadn’t considered.

I would be happy to recommend her to my friends, neighbours and family.

Barbara Long is a dedicated real estate professional.  She has been a great source of information about the Ottawa real estate market and I have found her to be very thorough in the inquiries she has made on my behalf.  I have had the great joy of knowing Barbara through our connection in the Ottawa Yoga community and in her capacity as a Yoga Teacher.  I have no doubt that her inquiring mind, clear focus, consistency and dedication is enhanced by her personal yoga practice and yoga teaching.

2017  Brigitte & Manu LOOKING BACK!

We moved from France in July 2011 with the objective of finding a home as quickly as possible. Barbara helped us to clarify our needs by showing us more than 25 homes in less than 30 days. We appreciated her honesty, patience, professionalism and kindness that we benefitted during our house search. We finally found the right home and Barbara was with us every step of the way. We couldn’t have found a better real estate agent and if we someone was looking an agent, we would definitely recommend Barbara!

A true pleasure to work with Brigitte and Manu again in 2017!

It was a pleasure to work with Barbara in finding my perfect retirement home in the Glebe Annex. She helped me find the right place at the right price and her advice was invaluable.

2016 Lee-Anne & Kevin

We trust Barbara completely and have worked with her on multiple occasions. We keep going back because she is an honest, trustworthy and entirely hardworking person. She even got us multiple offers in a down market!

2016 Nancy & Dominic

Barbara is amazingly patient, knowledgeable and really cares about her clients. If you want a realtor who really has your back, does not pressure you to make decisions that are not in your best interest, and really takes an interest in what you need and want, she is your gal. We loved her so much that we used her to buy two of our family homes! What’s more, she really holds our values when it comes to the environment.

She is full of information and advice when it comes to buying, renovating and making homes more energy efficient.

Mike & Nicole

Barbara was amazing to work with! We purchased our home in the Ottawa Valley with her help; in a long distance move from Vancouver, BC. Barbara eagerly took on the extra challenges that come with long distance house-hunting, and managed everything seamlessly. Barbara really went above and beyond to make it all happen; we are totally satisfied and would gladly use her services again.

Claudia

It was a real pleasure working with Barbara on the purchase of my first home. Within my relatively tight timeline she paid close attention to my needs and goals, dedicated herself to help make my search as effective as possible and demonstrated superb guidance throughout the entire process. I greatly appreciated Barbara’s balanced and individualized approach- she took the time to make sure I understood everything along the way, and provided the perfect amount of leadership and support so that I could make informed decisions with confidence. Thanks Barbara for a truly enjoyable and successful homebuying experience!
