Barb is known for being a passionate advocate for her clients, and for getting the job done no matter what it takes.
Nice to Meet You!
Barb grew up in Rosemount, MN. She started her career in commercial property management, and then moved into big-ticket software and IT consulting sales, and project management. She is known for being a passionate advocate for her clients, and for getting the job done no matter what it takes.
Returning to her real estate roots in 2005, Barb applies her strategic consulting methods to solving her clients' home buying and selling needs. She brings special expertise in the areas of short sales, FHA 203(k) rehab projects, and construction/remodeling.
So many people are missing payments, or even facing foreclosure and have nowhere to turn. By partnering with Minnesota's Home Rescue Team, we can determine if you should stay and fight, or if it's better to sell using short sale strategies. Each situation is different, and time is not on your side. We can help.
Rehabs and Investing
With my background in construction, I'm a great agent if someone is looking for a fixer-upper. I have rehabbed houses with my husband myself (I LOVE the demo!). This helps me spot potential issues while providing realistic costs estimates for repairs. We have all the qualified sub-contractors on call for specialty work such as roofing, siding, windows, carpet, cabinetry, flooring, plumbing, electrical, painting, countertops, millwork....you name it and we can get the buyer all of the expert assistance needed to make a sound buying decision.
Barbara Charlton served as my Realtor when I relocated to Minnesota from Colorado. She knows the metro area extremely well, and helped me find an incredible neighborhood and an amazing home. I found Barb to be a true professional that was willing to go the extra mile for me throughout the entire real estate process. If you are looking for a capable, intelligent, high integrity Realtor, then by all means, give Barb a call. -- SER, Rockford, MN
Barb is the most honorable person I know. She goes well out of her way to help you, and I would stake everything I have that she is the most worthwhile agent out there. I would recommend Barb to anyone! -- JV, Minneapolis, MN
Barb went above and beyond her duties to make sure we got an experienced Home Inspector and a new roof for our new home. Highly recommend her... -- KA, Lakeville, MN
