Areas of Expertise
Barbara has a strong knowledge of older homes and many of the unique neighborhoods in the St. Louis Metropolitan area. Not a native of St. Louis she has explored the city and has a good handle on the personality of many of the pockets of homes that make up St. Louis. From lofts in downtown, to the sophisticated CWE, to the Fifties of Olivette, to the gingerbread of South St. Louis, she loves finding places that make you feel good when you drive up. Areas of expertise: Tower Grove, South St. Louis, Benton Park, Central West End, Downtown Lofts, University City, Clayton, Richmond Heights, Maplewood, Webster Groves, Kirkwood, Brentwood, Ladue, Olivette and Creve Coeur.
We engaged Barb to not only sell our house but to also find our new home that fit our criteria and budget. We have found our dream home after about 3 months of searching and not settling. Barb would know in the first few minutes of walking into a home whether it really fit our needs. At times, I could have "settled" but Barb would question us on conditions of the house we were settling for and make us rethink it. She wasn't out to make the sale but truly wanted us to be happy with our ultimate decision. Her rule of thumb - if you had to sell the new house within 6 months, could you get your money back. She made us think it through and was really focused on our needs and what we wanted and brought her insight into it with a whole new perspective. Had we settled in the beginning, we would not have found the wonderful home we have now.
For the sale of our home, it was sold in 3 months. Not saying that it is possible with every home and we had some challenges with ours but Barb put her heart into it. She walked the neighborhood and passed out fliers, she sent out ezines to her regular client list and advocates for our neighborhood and most importantly, Barb created phenomenal online photo albums for the house. She would come out on days even when the sky was just a little bit bluer and take new pics and replace ones online (because she knows the search engines will pick it up more when new photos are submitted). I can't tell you how many homes we looked at online and wondered why someone would post a particular picture of a room in the house that was dark, couldn't see it well, horrible shot, etc. Barb is extremely competent in technology and photography. In this economy, you need every edge you can get and Barb Heise was that edge for us. By the way, the buyers were overseas and found our house online and fell in love with the photo album.......
