Barbie has an encyclopedic knowledge of the market. She did an amazing job marketing our house and was able to sell it in just five days. I would recommend Barbie to anyone! - January, 2020
We have bought and sold with Barbie and always the best experience! Very professional, thorough and has our best interest as her priority.
We had such a wonderful experience working with Barbie to sell our home. She helped us figure out how to get our house ready to put on the market, helped with recommendations of knowledgeable, affordable people to do some work we needed done, she was readily available any time we needed her help or had questions and she helped us get the most out of our home. We highly recommend her to sell your home and would work with her again any time. - June, 2020
My family and I were relocating to Memphis from Maryland because I was starting a new job. Barbie was recommended to me by my new employer. We wanted to find a single-family home in Memphis while, at the same time, also selling our home in Maryland. This is our eighth home sale either as seller or buyer, so we have experience and know what we are doing (we once sold as owners in another state). Barbie was exceptional in every way. I cannot imagine having achieved this same happy outcome without her. She talked to us extensively to determine what we were looking for, took us to a number of homes, quickly got a sense for what would work for us, and we eventually purchased a home that was just perfect for us. Along the way, there were the expected obstacles in dealing with sellers and other realtors. Barbie stood above them all. It was clear that she had our best interests as her priority, not just moving another sale along. When it came time to negotiate on the home we purchased, we had no idea what a fair offer would be due to the sales and renovation history of the house. Barbie was able to advise us and we were exceedingly pleased with the outcome because the sellers accepted her offer. During the process of inspections, she was extremely insightful, bold but strategic, in further negotiating modifications. She knew exactly what to do even when it did not necessarily seem so to us. Her knowledge of the market, local practices, transactions, etc. was phenomenal. She is a consummate professional in every way. She is quite comfortable and capable dealing with a wide range of personalities and sophistication. She was always extremely responsive and always en pointe. She never put anything off until later...she got it done right away and she got it done right. She has the highest personal and professional ethics, integrity, and standards. After working with Barbie, I would never ever work with another Memphis real estate agent in the future. She is playing chess while others are playing checkers. Or tic-tac-toe - June, 2020
We cannot give too strong a recommendation about Barbie -- dedicated, extensive knowledge, practical, listens and focuses very well. She is patient when need be and always in the moment, never hesitant to provide an opinion or provide context to a complex issue. Six stars in all categories! - May, 2020
We are so glad we decided to work with Barbie Dan / Hobson Realtors to help us sell our home. She was recommended to us from a friend and we wish to echo their referral and recommendation. Barbie was professional, helpful and friendly and made the entire process easy and enjoyable. She was responsive and always available when we needed her but respected our time as well. From Day One, it was clear that Barbie had our best interests in mind. Before providing any of her own expert recommendations, she took time to interview and listen to us to understand our goals and expectations for selling our home and buying a new one. She provided guidance on all aspects of selling our home, from determination of list price to negotiation on offers and repairs but represented us the entire time and allowed us to make all final decisions. In interviewing multiple agents, we felt that Barbie set herself apart from the competition by offering a comprehensive marketing program, employing all of the latest online marketing tools and enhancing them with classy, professionally printed brochures and open houses. We were very proud of our home and worked very hard to get it ready to sell. This effort together with Barbie representing us was definitely a winning combination. - May, 2020
Barbie Dan did a masterful job of selling our million-dollar house in a difficult market. She recommended what should be done to our home with the help of her skilled workmen to make our home look remarkable inside and out. Barbie is attentive and personable with an encyclopedic knowledge of the Memphis TN real estate market. When you're ready to sell your home, you should call Barbie Dan. - April, 2020
We knew that Barbie was something special before we first talked to her. We received Barbie’s name from a friend who had recently bought a home. Barbie was the seller’s agent, but our friend was so impressed by her that he wanted to pass along her contact information. When you’re as good as Barbie, word gets around! We knew from the beginning that our situation would be tricky. We were shopping for a home in Tennessee all the way from Massachusetts. Our timeline was long, and a bit uncertain. This was even before the coronavirus situation escalated. By all accounts this process should have been terribly stressful, but with Barbie, it was anything but. She was so attentive in giving us tours (eventually, FaceTime tours) and was a brilliant educator for us on everything we needed to know. She advocated for us in a way that made us feel like we were her only clients - for many things, we did not even have to ask. Despite the distance, Barbie was readily available to answer questions and keep the process moving as smoothly as possible. The contacts she referred us to process the mortgage and inspection were wonderful as well - we had an absolute dream team! My partner and I could not be happier with our experience with Barbie. Some home buyers may think that as long as the home transaction gets DONE, it doesn’t matter what happens along the way. This is not true. Skilled agents will uncover ways to save you money, impart valuable local knowledge, and advocate for you. Barbie did all of those things and so much more. - April, 2020
Barbie helped us buy our first house last month. She worked with us for about a year before we landed on something right for us. Her patience and wisdom throughout the process was invaluable. I can’t imagine the mistakes we would have made without her guidance. Five stars truly isn’t enough. - March, 2020
Barbie does a phenomenal job for her clients - I used her twice when buying and selling my home. She is very professional and responsive, has full understanding of her business, the local area, and is very personable that helps take some of the stress out of the home buying/selling process. I would highly recommend Barbie for anyone looking to buy or sell a house in the Memphis area - she is awesome!! - February, 2020
Barbie Dan is truly one of a kind. My husband and I had a few months to find a home in the Memphis area. My husband worked at St. Jude, and faculty at St. Jude recommended her to us, saying they had a great experience working with her. I had a decent checklist of what I wanted in a home, and I was skeptical, but Barbie and I looked at almost 70 homes over a month and a half. Barbie is so familiar with the Memphis area that she could tell me a lot about the homes I was interested in before I even set foot in them! She never pushed a home onto me; she never tried to "sell" me a home. She would point out the home's good qualities as well as its shortcomings, and then she would gauge my reaction to the home to see how I felt about it. I was so thankful we chose her. One morning I saw a new home in my online feed, I called Barbie and she made an appointment for that afternoon. When we walked in, I think we both knew that was the home for us!! I knew the home would go immediately, so I asked Barbie to make an offer that day. Barbie acted so quickly that no one else saw the home and we ended up with the home! You will be hard pressed to find a realtor as respectful of your needs and wants as Barbie Dan! - January, 2020
