J & L Ramos


"Barb did an outstanding job helping us purchase our Lake House. She is extremely knowledgeable about the Port Orchard/Gig Harbor area, and helped us find the perfect place near my sister-in-law. Barb made sure to take the time and get to know us, and was spot-on with her recommendations based on her experience and our wishlist. Barb endured over a year with us trying to purchase first one home, then a piece of property, and finally our Lake House. She is a consummate professional, and always represented our best interests. Barb was in constant communication with us throughout the entire buying process, even making sure we got across the finish line to close on time."

C and J Buchter


We worked with Barb on our move to the Sound area, …and honestly I can't say enough great things about Barb! She was really responsive; she was always able to set up same-day walk-throughs; and she knows EVERYONE. In addition to all that, she is really nice!

She saved us a lot of money and had a well-balanced approach to the negotiation. She knows the market and her relationships with all the other agents really made it easy and fast. I would recommend Barb to anyone - you really can't ask for anything more. Great person, great agent, and she knows every facet of the process from beginning to end. Look her up! “

“Barb helped us with every step of our sale (part of an estate).  She gave us patient and detailed advice on all our options on how to prepare the house for sale and returns on each.  She was wonderfully patient while the processing of our grief caused delays in putting the house on the market.  But once we were ready to work on it, she helped us move quickly, and made our sale quick, easy and painless.  The sale far exceeded our expectations both on the limited time it was on the market and in the final sale price.  We will always be grateful she was our agent.”


N Anderson and M White

Buyer and Seller

"Barb went above and beyond to land us a house. She was extremely knowledgeable, diligent, friendly, and helpful during every step of the home buying process. We're pretty busy at home with four kids, including a now 4-month-old, and Barb saved us a lot of stress. When we couldn't make it to an inspection, Barb was there, and she made sure it was done right. We even managed to buy a home under the list price, which is unheard of in today's market. Barb is truly at the top of her field and a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend her."

“Barb and Sue’s communications during the closing process and after were top notch. We felt prepared and confident, even though we were closing from a distance for the first time.



M Ropella


"Barb was an outstanding agent. She was very helpful and responsive. Her knowledge and expertise along with her responsiveness made her a pleasure to work with. I would recommend her to anyone needing assistance."

A & M Sackett

Buyer & Seller

"We met Barb about 2 years before we moved to Seattle, she persevered with us while we tried to find financing and the house we wanted. She drove us hundreds of miles around the Puget Sound and visited some wild places. We finally found the place we wanted and got it. When it was time to leave Washington, we weren’t going to call anyone else. Barb was called and we started a really rough sale, things went sideways through no fault of anyone, and yet she expertly handled each situation that came up. We consider Barb to be a friend, and a confidante. She is a great Real Estate agent and would use her again. Total Professional and an Excellent person."

R & J Davies


"If we could give Barb higher than five, we would. In most respects she did the job of the sellers’ agent as well as her own. We had the unnerving experience of having the sellers’ agent enter our home without permission and belligerently refuse to identify himself. One phone call to Barb and she took care of everything. We are so grateful to have had Barb on our side."

V & B Olson


"Barb is AMAZING! She’s professional, knowledgeable, and honest. She gave us options and was upfront with us. We knew ahead of time what may or may not happen with sale of our home. In addition to all of this she’s fun to work with and easy to talk to. We really appreciated her and all that she did for us. AND another benefit of working with her is the team of professionals she works with. Everyone is on top of the sale process and they will answer any question or concerns you may have. Best experience ever and we are so appreciative!"

M Soule

Seller & Buyer

She took the time to understand what we were looking for and what was important for us. She has timely communication and kept us informed throughout the entire process.

J & M Kim


"We have bought/sold over 10 houses and Barb is by far the BEST agent. She is very knowledgeable about market, geography, and building construction. And our closing was delayed due to issues with city permits, she worked overtime to get pieces moving to expedite closing. Redfin would be smart to hire Barb as the Gig Harbor specialist."

S Vulgares


"We worked with Barb and her wonderful assistant from start to finish selling our home. Barb was very responsive to all of our questions along the way and always got back to us immediately, including keeping us posted with email updates during the entire process. Barb offered a staging service and held several successful open houses. Her amazing knowledge of the Gig Harbor real estate market made all the difference and she worked very hard on our behalf. I am a homeowner, but I have never sold a home before. We were very fortunate to work with someone so professional and down to earth. I highly recommend Barb if you are selling your home."

S Henderson

Buyer and Seller

"Barb helped us find our first home and saved me literally at least $6K by suggesting certain inspections and then sold our home for us 6 years later. I was a Realtor for years and her knowledge, expertise and service still blew me away!"

J Riley and P Fletcher


"We would like to thank Barb for her knowledge and help for our recent home purchase. We were working in a very active housing market. Barb has a great deal of experience and knowledge of the local housing market. She is a pleasure to work with and a wonderful person. we are grateful for her help. She works within a large geographical region. She was able to help us get all of the construction inspections we needed in a fast paced market. Thank you so much Barb!"

B Bigelow and A Odom


"Barb is amazing, not only did she get the house we brought with her 2 1/2 years ago sold. She got it done in record time and above asking. Her wisdom and knowledge, her experience, compassion and lovely inner spirit made working with her great!! She is one of a kind and we would have her as our agent again and again and recommend her to everyone looking to buy or sell a home."

M and M McGinnis

Buyer and Seller

"Of all the real estate representatives we have dealt with over the years, Barb Magnuson stands out as far away and the best. Not only is she knowledgeable and professional, she is also a warm and compassionate person. She did an excellent job of finding and securing the home we wanted. She also excelled at keeping us informed in every step of the process. Barb and her assistant Sue Redkey make an excellent team to meet all of the needs of both buyer and seller."  

E Purvis


"This is my second experience working with Barbara. She sold me a home several years ago and when a family member passed this spring amidst a world-wide pandemic and other national challenges there was no question who I would call. She stepped right up to help me ready the estate for sale - no small task. Barbara is incredibly competent, reliable and has a breadth of general knowledge that spans outside of real estate to construction, design, landscape and so much more. Her assistant, Sue, is also exceptional and both were always available to immediately answer my questions. I really can't recommend Barbara highly enough. She will most definitely be my first call for any real estate needs in the future."

E Wallis & R Gronewold

K & E Green


“She really listened to what I wanted! Barb, goes above and beyond what you would expect by being super proactive in finding and offering solutions and options.”

A Yee

Buyer and Seller

“Barb represented me on the initial purchase as well as sale of this building 3 years later. She provided amazing guidance throughout this process and even helped to get the deal closed when we had issues with a unscrupulous sewage company. All the while she acted with the upmost integrity and trust that one looks for in a real estate agent."
