The last 30 years of owning a boutique advertising agency and then on to residential real estate in two markets (New Mexico and Florida) has given me the ability to take a different approach to real estate, one that is built on personal touches, win-win deals and positive results. I utilize the latest technologies, market research and business strategies to exceed expectations and to find solutions that are tailored to individuals. My many years of being part of solutions, helps me to listen closely to my customers/clients and put their priorities and goals into action! I value each and every opportunity to help families with their next move and/or with the sale of their current home. “Real Estate Made Easy” – I strive for everyone to love their experience and walk away saying, “That was much easier than I expected“.
If you were to put my playlist on shuffle, you might find one of these songs:
Macy Gray “I try”
Jake Owen (Any song he sings)
Justin Beiber “I’m the One”
Wild Cherry “Play that Funky Music” (Almost any Funk music)
Luke Bryan “Most People are Good”

Barb even helped us find people to do property improvements and guided us toward utility connections and such. We would definitely use her services again. ~ Kim McCormick
Google 5 Star Review: I have used barb now for two of my houses that my wife and I love. She is so easy to work with and always on top of everything and I love that because moving is very stressful. She always answers my calls and if she doesn’t she calls back within 5 mins. I can’t thank her enough for everything she has done for me. ~ Brandon Ward-Hersee

Google 5 Star Review: Barb Wade is truly one of the best realtors I have ever worked with!! I live out of state and Barb went above and beyond to make my home buying experience painless. She communicated well, she is extremely personable, and has extensive knowledge of the area and the real estate market. She stayed on top of all of the details and was a pleasure to work with. I cannot recommend Barb enough! Thank you again! ~ Katie McColloch
Google 5 Star Review: If I could give more than 5 stars to both Barb & Shelia Sheehan, I would! We are doing a cross country move and bought a house through virtual tours with Barb & Shelia before going to see it in person. We trusted them that much! From the 1st call with them, they heard what we wanted, what we didn’t want, what our budget was, small & big details, timing issues, working with our local agent here who was selling our home simultaneously, and stuck with it all which saved everyone time and frustration making the transaction seamless. Also, moving cross country has challenges that a local move does not. Barb & Shelia used their local connections to help us when needed for things like insurance, contractors, warranty companies for the appliances in the home, etc…They are still helping us weeks after the purchase of the house which is amazing and unheard of these days for the most part. We were treated like family and I cannot say enough great things about these 2 ladies! ~ Audrey Groves
Google 5 Star Review: Barb is the best. She walked me through every step of the selling process and got me a premium on my condo. Highly recommend her and her team at Beachy Beach. ~ Greg Stovall
