    Don and Eileen gave Barbara 5 stars out of 5
    Barbara is an outstanding realtor! She and Madeline were professional in handling the details of showcasing our house in the best way which made for a quick sell. Barbara helped us in identifying the right price for our house, in staging our house and was excellent in negotiating with the buyer's agent. We highly recommend Barbara and Madeline to future families who want to sell their home.

    There are so many wonderful things that we can say about Barbara and Madeline!! They are the best realtors in the area! I don't know what we would have done without them! We recently moved to Texas from Northern Virginia and they made the home buying process go so smoothly! They were so knowledgeable in all areas and took the time to really get to know our family and our needs as we had to make so many critical decisions for our cross country move. Barbara and Madeline were side by side with us every step of the way and definitely went above and beyond!! They not only helped us buy our first home in Texas, but they were our first friends in Texas and are now apart of our family. We would work with them again and again to sell and buy any house!

    Barbara and Melanie were extremely helpful in finding a buyer for our home. They never seemed to tire of marketing the property in various ways to show it to as many potential buyers as possible. We trusted them and were not disappointed. If we ever want to sell again we will use their services.

    Barbara and Madeline are a fabulous team. We feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to work with them. They were patient, responsive, and always available. Barbara is so knowledgeable and assertive! She helps you feel completely at ease as you walk through the home buying process. Madeline was a delight as well. She was always quick to respond to our questions or help us find what we needed. I highly recommend this wonderful team for your real estate needs!

    Bob and Barbara gave Barbara 5 stars out of 5
    I knew immediately upon meeting Barbara Kearns that she was the realtor for us. She came so prepared and gave us such confidence in her ability to get the job done and that she did. Her professionalism, hard work, and never give up attitude was awesome. Both she and Madeline were wonderful to work with. We never had to worry about anything getting done. Their honesty and integrity for all parties involved was so great. Refreshing to say the least. We loved working with both of them so much.

    Suellen gave Barbara 5 stars out of 5
    Barbara helped me better understanding the selling process, recommended workers for repairs that needed to be completed before listing and walked me through how to prepare my homes for viewing. She and Madeline made sure viewers were prequalified so that there was no waste of time on either part, which resulted in a pleasant experience by selling two homes within six months. Barbara is well known in the community and has area-wide connections with other agents as well as builders. Madeline was helpful to show me many Beaumont homes that were on the market in my price range. Barbara even advised me as I looked into building a new home, then found the perfect home for me when I decided I didn't want to wait for the build. I was very satisfied with my entire experience.

    I had the best experience with Barbara Kearns and her assistant, Madeline Busby. They worked so hard to to find just the right place for us. Anytime I had questions, they were very quick to respond with an answer or just a guarantee that they were looking for an answer. They kept us well informed about the progress of the house we were getting. I highly recommend their services. They were so easy to work with!

    Joanna gave Barbara 5 stars out of 5
    I cannot express how grateful I am to have had the opportunity to work with Barbara. She has been nothing short of phenomenal to be around and worked so hard to ensure I got the right house moving here. From the very first time I met her and Madeline, they instantly reassured my family and I that we would find the right house with their expertise and connections. She is very responsive and has guided me through any problems or questions that came up along the way. There was never a time where I was not able to get ahold of her or Madeline and have a quick response back. My roommates and I still connect with them today to check in and see how things are going. They negotiated with our home owner to get us a new fridge in our house before we moved in and physically ensured the house was in great shape before we signed the papers. This amount of trust and dedication is not something I see often and felt relieved to have them apart of our housing search. Their attention to detail and care for clients is evident in all of her work and I highly recommend her to friends and family. I wouldn't trust anyone else! They are amazing people that I feel fortunate to have met and cannot speak highly enough about their business!

    From our first meeting until my Mother's home was sold, Barbara exhibited all of the professional qualities you expect from a top-notch realtor. And, she was a pleasure to work with in getting my Mother's home sold. She is the best!

    When I was called to the Reformed Presbyterian Church in Beaumont as an Interim Pastor in August 2016 I was seeking a house and needed to find something suitable quickly. I had been looking at photos posted on the Internet and phoned the agent for Coldwell-Banker Southern Homes who had listed the home I was interested in. However, she was busy and directed me to call the local office of Coldwell-Banker and it was Real Estate Agent and Realtor Barbara Kearns who took my call. Barbara was friendly, polite, knowledgeable, professional, patient and showed sincere concern for me as a client and helped me to make the right decision to rent the property at 5640 Clinton Street, Beaumont, TX 77706. She addressed all my questions and concerns (including the pink-and-green tile bathroom) with sanctified common sense and provided the local knowledge and insight I needed to feel comfortable in buying my new home. I was impressed with her dedication in helping me find a rental house and also with her willingness to advise me about the real estate market in Beaumont and the Golden Triangle area. After I moved in I asked the owner of the property I was renting if he would be interested in selling it to me but he declined, explaining the property had been the starter home for him and his family and he wanted to keep it. So, when he changed his mind in May 2021 and offered to sell it to me, this was truly an answer to prayer. I immediately called Barbara Kearns and asked if she would be willing to guide me through the process of purchasing the property I had now been renting for 5 years. The sale offer made by the owner was generous, but his one condition was that we leave the real estate agents out of it. However, I knew that I needed help and Barbara agreed to represent me as a buyer and advise me throughout the procedure for a reasonable fee. Her skill and experience helped me avoid the many pitfalls and mistakes often made during the buying process, and her discernment and charming personality apparently put the seller at ease because he raised no objections to Barbara representing me in the sale. As a long-time resident in Beaumont, Barbara has established working relationships with other professionals in the real-estate community here and referred me to Brenda Saulsbury with Westin Mortgage Group and Charles Cole with TWFG Insurance Services and others who provided the home inspection and survey of the property. I mention all this to say that when you choose Barbara Kearns as your Real Estate Agent and Realtor you will be getting someone who will provide all the expertise and professional contacts needed to deliver your property needs, and I am speaking from personal experience! As you would expect Barbara keeps busy but she has never failed to return every text or phone call, and she is ably supported by Realtor Assistant Madeline Busby! I closed on my home on Friday July 2, 2021 and I will be forever grateful to Barbara Kearns and Madeline Busby for all their help in making my dream of owning a home in Beaumont come true. I rate Barbara Kearns FIVE STARS(*****)! Thanks again, Barbara!

    Barbara Kearns of Coldwell Banker Southern Homes is very deserving of every dollar she earns. Many attributes to her name and selling is her game. Our family knows this as she has successfully taken care of finding a beautiful home for us after Hurricane Harvey destroyed ours, sold some land for us, and is now working on another project for us. She is thorough, tenacious, kind, and is not a quitter! She gets five stars out of five stars from us. -The Burton Family

    Working with Barbara has been an absolute pleasure for me. Her professionalism and work ethic are to be admired.Since our move was long distance and we could not be there to oversee the required painting and repairs, Barbara readily volunteered to do them all herself. She found a great a painter for the best price and took over completely as if it were her home that was on sale. I would readily recommend her to anyone that's looking to buy or sell a home.
