Barbara's success is a result of her diverse background in consumer marketing. As the first Vice President Marketing and Creative Director of Victoria's Secret, she was responsible for building and positioning the powerful brand. She worked in San Francisco for the original owner of the start-up company through its sale to Limited, Inc. After Victoria's Secret, Barbara founded an award-winning fashion advertising agency in downtown San Francisco. Later, she parlayed her marketing, sales, and entrepreneurial skills into a successful real estate career. Her keen eye for design, expertise in home renovation, and commitment to unparalleled service makes her the right choice for homeowners who are looking to sell their properties at premium prices.

Barbara's skills as a listing agent are also exceptionally useful to those looking to buy. She offers buyers the same attention to detail and superb negotiating skills, resulting in appropriate investments and successful transactions that are timely and stress-free.

Barbara has a B.A. in Literature from the University of Florida (with a special emphasis on Film Criticism).

She is a member of Saint Petersburg's Museum of Fine Alts, The Salvador Dali Museum, Museum of History, The James Museum, Save the Burg, Pinellas Board of Realtors, and National Association of Realtors.

Barbara is passionate about old homes, vintage cars, cinema art, and classic literature. She was raised on the water on Catawba Island in Northern Ohio where she spent summers as a lifeguard. As the proud owner of a little red speed boat, she became an accomplished slalom skier. She spent many vacations in Florida deep sea fishing with her dad and grandfather before attending college in the Sunshine State. After decades in San Francisco, she yearned to live and work in a smaller, waterfront city. Saint Petersburg provides Barbara the quality urban lifestyle on the water, where she lives and works among the historic neighborhoods and homes that are her passion.

Barbara focuses her well-honed listing and marketing skills on the city of Saint Petersburg. She also works in the surrounding communities where sellers need an old-home specialist to attain top dollar for their treasured assets. Saint Pete Beach, Pass-a-Grille, Treasure Island, South Pasadena and Tampa are included in these areas. Barbara has sold many luxury condominiums in San Francisco during her career. She loves the opportunity  that the downtown Saint Petersburg high­ rise market provides.

Barbara is a certified Seller Representative Specialist (SRS), Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES®) and Real Estate Negotiation Expert (RENE).
