What are our clients saying?

"Barb has a great knowledge and experience with investment property, she was very helpful with the purchase and sale of our property and we would seek out her representation in any future purchase or sale."

McKnight - Tacoma

"Barb helped me purchase my current house and just helped me sell a rental property. Barbs knows real estate law, the local markets and trends. Barb is great to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in selling or purchasing a home."

King – Gig Harbor

"We used Barbara to sell our property in Port Orchard Just recently. We had been on again and off again looking at properties and trying to decide if it was the right time to make a move. We had 2 bad experiences looking and using realtors in the past and honestly " just didn't want to go through it again" when we met Barb we knew right away she was the one. She is firm and honest, and truly on your side. Not only did she sell our home in less than 24 hours but negotiated a dicey purchase that we were being pushed for time on. This may be a good sellers market but when conducting a simultaneous sell and purchase- IT's NOT FOR THE WEAK AT HEART!! She worked through it and kept my wife and I on track and confident through the process. I would refer her and her team to anyone and will shout it from the mountains. Very professional and honest."

Mahnken - Port Orchard

I would like to thank Barb Magnuson of the Gig Harbor Keller Williams office for being a fantastic agent to work with. Barb is dependable and diligent, delivering on her promises in a timely manner. She is extremely outgoing and also understands the local housing market which helped put our minds at ease. My husband and I had an extremely seamless and positive experience and would highly recommend Barb and her team. 

Sharp - Gig Harbor

"Barb handles all the routine/expected jobs and issues expertly and diplomatically. This alone would make her an awesome real estate agent. However, Barb goes above and beyond what you would expect by being super proactive in finding and offering solutions and options. She really listened to what I wanted and found me information and provided her expert opinion on a variety of options. If it weren't for Barb I would not have made the choices I've made (that I'm VERY happy about!). Thank you Barb!!"
