    Barbara was an outstanding realtor for us. We were considering a move to Florida from Maryland and had a short 3 day visit planned. Barbara and I spoke at length before our trip, and she listened...really what we were looking for. We wanted a newer home (preferably brand new) in a community with social activities. We wanted easy access to the beach, especially one where we could bring our dog, and near a marina where we could store our boat. Not a minute of our time was wasted. Every property fit the description of what we were looking for. When we needed an extra day to make a final decision between two properties, Barbara was there with us (even on a Sunday!) We are currently building a house in a new community and are thrilled with the choice we made. Along the way, Barbara pointed our various locations that we might enjoy once we moved here...Brohard Paw Park, Casey Key, Fins Restaurant, Nokomis Beach, the Legacy Trail. She also gave me recommendations for a veterinarian, nail salon, and hair stylist. Barbara followed up with us after we made our commitment to a property to make sure all was moving along. Throughout the process, Barbara was available and extremely responsive to all our questions and concerns. I highly recommend Barbara to anyone looking to relocate in the Venice area.

    After interviewing 6 realtors from 6 different agencies we decided to go with Barbara and Maurice. I could tell they were the right realtors for several reasons. They were prompt and fast in getting back to me asap when I was trying to reach them, they were confident in their pricing based on their research, and they are professional in their presentation and their communication. Barbara did a fantastic job making my house look better than ever for the photoshoot. Our house sold in three days and we had a quick closing. I would highly recommend Barbara and Maurice whether you are selling or buying. Having both of them (as a team) means you get twice the care and assistance.

    We had a very positive experience with our home search in the Nokomis, Florida area. We wanted our dream retirement home, and we needed a realtor who understood our agenda, and who was willing to help us look at homes, keeping our desired criteria and unique requirements in mind. Barbara Burton Richardson exceeded our expectations. Not only did she meet with me and give an extensive and thorough overview and tour of the Venice/ Nokomis/ Osprey area, she showed many homes that might have met our needs and honestly helped us to filter through them. This process took many months, but she was so patient with us to help us find just the right home! She called, sent us emails, texts, FaceTimed a showing, and communicated with us all while still in Massachusetts. Barbara was quick to reply to all our questions and supported us as buyers agent beyond our expectations. She was knowledgeable, helpful, and thorough. Once we found our home from afar, she worked with us to complete the purchase process and seal the deal. Also, Barbara personally resolved a problem discovered at the time of final walkthrough that the other listing agency promised to fix, but disappointedly failed to. Having to return to Massachusetts again after closing, it was a huge help that she and her husband handled the matter for us. Unfamiliar with this area, Barbara also helped us with many tips and advice on living in this beautiful county in FL. Not only was she our realtor, but she became our first friend in the area! I can't wait to make the move. Thank you, Barbara!

    Barbara did an excellent job! She very helpful in sending us listings prior to selling our house up north. Once we sold our house and came down to buy a house, she very knowledgeable of the market and had listened to what we were looking for! I highly recommend Barbara to anyone moving to Venice and the surrounding areas.

    Barbara was so fun to have as a realtor. We looked at several homes and she was always very pleasant and very patient. We would recommend her in a heartbeat! You're the "best" Barb! Thank you for making it a pleasant experience.

    Excellent Service from Barbara at all times she far exceeded my needs in a Realtor. Barbara went the extra mile many times through my selling and buying process. Thank you again for all the help you and Maurice provided I will always recommend this team any chance I get!
    STEVEN gave Barbara 5 stars out of 5
    My wife Kathy and I truly enjoyed working with Barbara in our search for a new home. She was so very helpful and provided us with useful information and advice. Barbara was always available to answer our questions and took time to make us feel comfortable. We both had a good time in this past home search and Barbara was an important reason for our positive experience. We found our new home and are enjoying the Florida life. Barbara is highly recommended and if you want someone who will look out for your interests - Barbara B. Richardson is the realtor you should select.
