    Barb did a great job finding me house, referring a mortgage loan specialist and closing smoothly. We closed in less than 4 weeks + got everything done that needed to be done. I also want to mention, that I was living in another state and she helped my move to STL region feel seem less.

    We found Barb through the RealtyPlus program with Navy Fed. She was excellent from day one. She was very thorough, very communicative and very knowledgeable. Barb has gone the extra mile for us several times and made a stressful home buying process significantly smoother and easier. If I ever sell my home my first call will be to Barb!!
    Brock gave Barb 5 stars out of 5
    She was completely honest with us at all times. Even if it was something we did not want to hear which is not an easy task when talking about a possible home. Once we found the one we liked, she made it to where all we had to do was sign forms. Everything else was taken care of.

    We worked with Barb Shelton to sell our home. She had a plan from the beginning and our house sold in 2 days. She was kind, professional, responsive, and went above and beyond several times in our relocation process. I highly recommend her. She made a very stressful time more calm.

    I was very pleased with Barb's services as my agent. As a first-time buyer, she was very helpful with guiding me in the right direction with finding a home for me as well as recommending local lenders. I used one of her recommendations and he was great as well. My overall experience with Barb was excellent. I'm a single mother, was currently pregnant during my home search and Barb was very supportive and professional throughout the entire process. She was also a great communicator with me as well as sellers. She always kept me updated and answered any questions I asked. The home I purchased was for sale by owner and had not been put on the market yet. I gave Barb the address and asked to get info about the house, she was on it in no time and made arrangements for me to view the house the next day. Long story short, I bought that house and I love it! I highly recommend Barb!

    Top tier professional -- could not have sold our home without Barb!!! Barb, helped us prepare our home for sale with a network of quality resources to do the work needed prior to listing. Her expert real estate knowledge, advice, and wealth of experience helped us navigate each phase of the process and readily address any issues that arose. Always had answers to our questions and solutions whether it was regarding listing, pricing, negotiations, buyer's inspection results, closing, etc.
    Kathryn gave Barb 5 stars out of 5
    We are both extremely satisfied with the energy, expertise, and responsiveness of Barbara Shelton.  We were going through a federal government relocation program, and Barbara sailed through the additional "red tape" that those processes take to complete.  She was the first to respond to our need for a realtor back in October 2020...then hung in there during a long delay.  Once things cleared up on the govt. end, Barbara leaned in and took care of everything with comforting efficiency.  She was always ready with the right answer, always responsive, always positive.  If we returned to the area we would absolutely look for Barbara Shelton for our real estate needs.

    Barb is very knowledgeable about the housing market in the Metro East Area. Her expertise guided me to the place I now call home. My experience with her was amazing! She is very professional; yet personable and was very attentive to all of my wants and needs. My home buying process was seamless. I highly recommend Barb Shelton to assist you with finding the perfect place to call home!
    Bill and Linda gave Barb 5 stars out of 5
    We hadn't bought and sold a home in over 28 years, so we were pretty close to new home buyers. Barb helped us sell our existing home and find a new home we love. She was always available to answer our questions and walked us through the process. We got more for our exiting home than expected and paid less than asking for our new home. Barb was able to take our wants for the new house and find candidates that were near perfect, significantly reducing the search time. She listened to us and then provided clear suggestions and recommendations. We have no hesitations recommending Barb for the sale or purchase of a home.

    Barb did a great job. Very professional, good advice when needed. Very good communication; always replied promptly. Hard worker. No problems. If we ever need an agent again, she'll be the one.

    Barb was fantastic to work with. As a first-time home buyer, she was patience and answer all the questions I had. She would tell me what to look for and guide me through the whole process of looking for and buying a house. Would highly recommend Barb to anyone.
    Ken gave Barb 5 stars out of 5
    My wife and I have worked with about a dozen real estate agents over our 35-year marriage, and Barb ranks at the top as a listing agent. 5 standout areas: 1. Fair market assessment. We thought our house was worth $20-30K more than Barb did. But we trusted her evaluation and went with her recommendation. Sure enough - she was spot on and we weren't! The house sold at the lower range of what she said it would. 2. Responsiveness. Marketing a house is a long and complicated process. Any time we had questions or when an issue arose, Barb responded very quickly - usually within minutes, but at most an hour or two later. 3. Help with house preparation for closing. By the time new buyers conducted a house inspection, we already had headed to our new home in Arizona. Barb helped coordinate contracts with Termite company, handyman, Radon company, cleaning company, and City Occupancy inspector to ensure all issues with the house were resolved prior to closing. I don't know how we could have addressed all those issues without Barb's help. 4. House preparation for showings. Barb provided welcome guidance on preparing the house as well as possible so that potential buyers saw the "best face put forward". 5. Regular feedback on marketing activity. Barb checked in with us weekly to assess number of showings, amount of internet hits, and buyer trends as the house was being shown. House was on the market about 7 weeks before a contract was offered. We give Barb 5 stars; any buyer or seller cannot go wrong with her as an agent.

    We couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable and friendly agent in our search for our new home. Barb stayed on top of new listings daily and notified us of the ones that fit what we were looking for. She was more than accommodating to meet to show us the ones we were interested in seeing. When the home we were eyeing for months suddenly came back on the market, she notified us immediately about the change in its status. We couldn't be happier with the service we received and would highly recommend her to anyone in the market for a new home.
    Jonelle gave Barb 5 stars out of 5
    Barb is in my opinion, one of the best as realtors go!!! I've had a number of experiences where the realtors fees drove their need to help. And, if you change your mind, the realtor gets snippy and/or doesn't give you their best. Barb broke the mold... she listened, was patient, and flexible to fit the home buyers needs.. A true Rock Star!!!!
    Lindsay gave Barb 5 stars out of 5
    Barb was extremely helpful in making our home buying process easy! Her communication was great and we are so thankful that she was our agent.
    APRIL gave Barb 5 stars out of 5
    Barb was wonderful to work with! She was super helpful and very accommodating--we bought the house while living in a different state and she made the process easy and made sure everything was taken care of. She was very responsive and timely to all my questions. I will be recommending her to friends when they need a realtor!!
    Chris gave Barb 5 stars out of 5
    Barb is an exceptionally nice person! She was very patient with all my first time home buyer's questions and helped us each step of the way! She's definitely one to put in the work to help you find your dream house. Loved working with her. She went above and beyond in my opinion.
    Jennifer and Tony gave Barb 5 stars out of 5
    We enjoyed working with Barb. She was very timely in her communications with us. She helped make the home buying process very easy. She gave great advice and is very knowledgable on the buying process. We would absolutely recommend her! We will use her again in the future.
    Chris gave Barb 5 stars out of 5
    Long-time realtor friends recommended Barb as an expert in the Carlyle area. Barb helped us look at nearly a dozen properties over 9 months. She researched county records and area utility companies for information. Barb helped us track down info on unlisted "For Sale by Owner" properties, one of which ended up suiting our needs. We would happily work with Barb again.
    Nancy gave Barb 5 stars out of 5
    The Best! My house purchase required extra leg work, phone work and paper work. Barbara handled it all with confidence, calm and grace. The sellers and I both benefited by having her as my agent. Barbara's knowledge, honesty, familiarity with local resources and eagerness to help, certainly made the whole transaction easier and more fun than my previous real estate experiences.
    Scott gave Barb 5 stars out of 5
    Barb is very easy to work with and once she knows what you're looking for she goes out of her way to help you find it. I was told that buying a house was going to be the worst experience of my life. Barb made buying a house easy. I honestly had no idea what I was doing and she made sense out of the madness. Her knowledge and ability to explain everything in common terms was amazing. She took out the guesswork. I would be happy to work with her in the future. She was a Godsend.
    Shawn gave Barb 5 stars out of 5
    Barbara worked very hard to get our house sold. She spent countless hours going over paperwork with us and spent her personal time to research appraisal information. I would highly recommend Barbara to anyone looking to buy or sell property. Thanks to her our home sold.
    Debra gave Barb 5 stars out of 5
    After trying to work with another real estate agent and company for almost 9 months, we were very frustrated and didn't think that we would ever find a home. Looking for a home was even more difficult since we lived about 300 miles away. After we decided to change agents we contacted another company. Barb actually took the time to listen to us and asked us a lot of questions about what we were looking for in a home and location. She worked with us on scheduling a couple of days to view homes. And wow, on the first trip she found the right home for us in a neighborhood we hadn't considered before. Her knowledge of the area and our wish list was spot on. Everything went smoothly. Sure wish we started our house hunting with Barb Shelton.
