Throughout the process to sell our home and buy a new one, we were thankful we had chosen such an amazing partner and advocate to help us navigate. Barbara went above and beyond in all aspects of both of our transactions. We counted on her expertise and contacts to help us with fixes prior to selling and to get our new home move-in ready. She problem-solved some tough issues around the inspection on our new home; and reassured us through a tough moment where we were uncertain about our decision. We felt well represented in both negotiations and that Barbara was guiding us but really respected our opinions. We never felt hurried or pressured throughout the process. And Barbara was endlessly patient with our questions, requests and needs. Beyond all of the technical details, Barbara really cared about our family and made sure we were well taken care of.

Overall, Barbara did an amazing job for us. We were so lucky to find her. And we would absolutely recommend Barbara for anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

We just completed the sale of our architect designed, mid-century modern home in Shoreline; but currently live in New Zealand. As is often the case with an older home, repair work was required, including the installation of a new shake roof, new entry, and extensive shower repairs. And because we were out of the country for the entire process, we needed a professional that we could rely on, not just for expertise in handling the typical real estate work, but also to act as a project manager, finding and working with contractors, specifying products and services needed, and acting with knowledge and fairness throughout the ordeal. With her background as a licensed architect, Barbara Brandt is just such a person.
I am an architect as well, and both my wife and I felt completely comfortable that Barbara would make the right decisions and get the work done in a timely fashion. She has great design sense, and provided expert advice on what improvements would give the most "bang for the buck". Barbara also orchestrated the complete staging of the home, beautifully. Her architectural background gives her a real appreciation of appropriate design excellence and flair, coupled with the technical understanding of how buildings go together, which she puts to great use in the real estate world.
Barbara is a terrific communicator and always kept us in the loop, with regular feedback about showings, open houses, marketing efforts, etc. She worked exceptionally hard to get exposure for our listing, including arranging an interactive 3d web based tour on a range of real estate marketing websites. Throughout, Barbara demonstrated great depth of expertise in the overall process and nuances of selling a home.
We can honestly say that we cannot see how any other realtor could have met our needs with nearly the expertise and finesse that Barbara did. Selling a home from abroad requires a special level of maturity and knowledge. Barbara brought that to the table, always with good humor and a sense of grace that at times amazed us!!! When we eventually decide to move back to the area, Barbara is the only realtor that we would consider working with to find and purchase our next home. She's that good!

We feel extremely lucky to have worked with Barbara on two real estate transactions; with the purchase of a new home and the sale of our old home. From the first meeting with her, we knew that she was really listening to what we were looking for, even though my husband and I were looking for two different things!

With two young kids in tow, we toured homes in neighborhoods all over Seattle. Barbara was there every step of the way to make sure we were considering all aspects of the home. With her architecture background, she was able to see things that other agents may have missed.

Through both transactions, Barbara remained in close contact with us and she kept us apprised of the next steps. She coached us on what maintenance needed to be done before we could list our home and she coordinated the staging and photography while we were at work. With our busy schedules, it was great to have a partner working behind the scenes taking care of the little details of each transaction.

Barbara went above and beyond what other real estate agents would do and I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Barbara is wonderful! When I needed to sell my house and downsize to a smaller house in a hurry, I was facing an incredibly stressful situation. Barbara came in with grace, knowledge, and a willingness to help that I desperately needed. She soon had a plan in place to get my house ready to go on the market. Her experience and knowledge were invaluable, as she was able to tell me the most important things to fix up, and what to let go. She has contacts for everything (cleaners, painters, stagers, etc…) which made the whole process easier. Barbara does her research, knows the market, and gave me great advice when making an offer on a house and again when pricing my house to sell. She interacted with everyone involved in a professional manner and it was clear to me that she is well-respected and very much liked by her colleagues. Her attention to detail and southern hospitality make her the ideal real-estate agent!

Most important was how she treated me with such kindness. I was never just a client to her; she understood my unique situation and became a source of strength and support when I needed it most. She became much more than my agent, she became a good friend.

We had a great experience working with Barbara this spring selling our Seattle house! She was professional and personable through the whole experience, and we are very thankful for her skills and thoughtfulness as a realtor. Throughout our house selling process, she communicated well, recommended updates and coordinated contractors. We found her insights and recommendations very helpful as we made decisions in preparing our house. She took charge of the photos, staging and marketing which looked great and helped us sell our house quickly and at a price we were very happy with. Barbara is a trustworthy realtor who I would be glad to recommend to others!

I worked with Barbara for several years in her previous incarnation as an architect. So when it was time to select a real estate agent for my first home buying experience, the choice was easy and obvious. Attentive, meticulous, and patient, Barbara was the right partner to guide me through a process I knew almost nothing about and in a very competitive real estate landscape. She is a great listener and objectively correlated each listing’s pluses and minuses with my needs and priorities, providing an unbiased analysis for every available option we entertained. From assisting with finding a great broker, answering my endless questions, providing keen advice when needed and keeping track of the complex closing process, Barbara was there every step of the way – all of it, may I add, accompanied by a smile and a great sense of humor. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

M. Wong

We had such a great experience selling our home and finding a new one with Barbara’s help— I can’t imagine doing real estate business with anyone else. Barbara is positive, detailed, helpful, friendly, and guided us through the entire process with ease. Her thoughtful comments helped us with choosing a new home and getting through the selling process of our other home. She worked extremely hard at marketing our home and selling it quickly even when sales were softening. So glad we chose her!

G. Lundquist

Landing an exceptional home in the perfect neighborhood wouldn’t have been possible in today’s market without Barbara's hard work and expertise. She went the extra mile make sure we submitted a strong offer on short notice, and kept me organized throughout the closing process so that there were no loose-ends. I am so thrilled with my purchase and owe it all to Barbara!

A. Fusaro

Barbara helped us buy our first home. We had no idea what we were doing but her depth of knowledge helped us every step of the way. Her background as an architect gives her a skilled eye and she will notice every important detail in a home. Plus, she's just fun to be around. We had a very challenging home inspection/contract negotiations but Barbara's savvy helped us navigate the process. We couldn't have done it without her. Seattle's housing market is bananas but we were able to find our dream home thanks to Barbara's hard work.

We purchased a small house in NE Seattle in the 1970's and when we moved out in the late 1980's, we kept the house as a rental. Two years ago, my wife and I decided it was time to sell. Barbara was with us every step of the way. She helped us plan the remodel so that when it was done, we would be able to put it on the market at the best time. And Barbara's industry knowledge and advice on the remodel meant that we were able to realize the maximum potential of the property. The final sales price was beyond our expectations!
Barbara was a trusted partner in the sale of our house. She had great resources to help us with issues that came up during the remodel and preparation for sale. And I have no reservations in recommending Barbara to anyone looking for an experienced, trusted realtor. Barbara is a great realtor and friend.

C. Johnson

Barbara was recommended to us as a great realtor. Of all of the realtors we met, Barbara felt like talking to a friend. She was truly interested in finding out our goals and expectations. Sellers are a nervous bunch and Barbara was responsive and answered all our questions and concerns. Barbara brought us all the information and options we needed to make good solid decisions. As a result, our house sold over list and within a week. Best of all she has become a friend. I would highly recommend her.

J. Thompson

We highly recommend Barbara as a seller's agent. She has strong knowledge of the market and trends, and is well-connected with both contractors and other realtors. An architect and super organizer, she was always on top of the must-dos and next-steps. It felt like we had an entire team working with us. It couldn’t have gone any better. Thanks Barbara!

S. Merrifield

I cannot put into words how thankful I am to have worked with Barbara over the past few months. She helped me find and purchase my very first home! Barbara’s communication is excellent and she is a joy to work with. She took the stress out of the home buying process which allowed me to relax and enjoy the ride.

E. Lau

Working with Barbara, a trustworthy & responsive real estate broker, was crucial during our home-buying process. She guided us through every step of the transaction, ensuring we found the property we love. Barbara proactively represented us when issues arose.
Most importantly, she kept us informed & calm throughout the entire process. I would recommend Barbara to my close friends and relatives...without a doubt.

J. Mayo

Barbara went the extra mile in finding us a new home, sometimes visiting 9+ homes in a single day! After finding a place, she walked us through the process, answered all our questions and scheduled a home inspection on short notice. I highly recommend anyone work with Barbara! They won't be disappointed.

D. Kohn

Barbara was really great to work with. We are out of town buyers and she worked with our schedule and found us the perfect place. She has continued to help us even after closing when we had questions regarding the area and various trades people for any work we want done. All in all Barbara has truly been all that we could ask for in a Realtor.

P. Hagen

Barbara did a great job selling our house for us. She was totally professional and was great at answering all of our questions. We had moved out of town by the time the house went on the market and wanted the floors refinished and walls painted after we moved. Barbara did a wonderful job helping us handle workers getting access to the home, after we were no longer in Seattle. I would highly recommend her services!

B. Chin

We needed a real estate agent, and I'm grateful to Barbara Brandt at Windermere for helping us out. We needed to sell my mother's condo after a debilitating stroke. Barbara's attention to detail, analytical skills, responsiveness, flexibility, and compassion got my family smoothly through the process, from start to finish during a very stressful time. Within a week of being on the market, we had a full price offer. Barbara's marketing plan and pricing were spot on!
