"Success Starts With the Drive"
When Barb Schmitt won a free trip to Palm Beach through her work, she figured she'd soak up some sun and take golf lessons just to try something new. Little did she know that the first time she'd tee off and send the ball flying, she would fall in love with the game. She even impressed her golf teacher when she sank a shot with her nine iron from ninety yards out.
The Open Range
Now, when she''s not busy helping her clients, you''re likely to find this successful businesswoman at the driving range trying to improve her swing. "I love everything about it," says Barb, "being outside, the art of picking the right club, teaching your body the mechanics and seeing the results sail into the air."
Always 100 Percent
It's characteristic of how Barb approaches everything in life—from practicing every day to make the cheerleading squad in high school, to reading everything she can get her hands on to increase her business knowledge. When Barb finds something she enjoys, she puts all her energy and drive into being the best she possibly can be.
Family and Faith
But perhaps what Barb likes most about golf is the fact that she and her husband can enjoy it together. Family is Barb’s top priority. It doesn’t matter if they’re at a baseball game, a museum, on vacation at a North Carolina beach, or simply playing a game of ping pong, if she’s with her husband and daughter, it’s exactly what she wants to be doing.
Barb’s faith is also important to her and it inspires her to give back to others. Through missions organized by consortium of several churches, Barb has been to Africa to build a leprosarium, Guatemala to help repair a school and to the Kentucky mountains to help provide dental care to low income families. "It helps put your life in perspective," says Barb.
A Passion for Success
Whatever she’s doing, Barb gives it her all and it''s this passion for success that has made her one of the premier real estate professionals in the area. She goes the extra mile to make sure her clients have an advantage—from timely and insightful market research to top-notch marketing, including strategic exposure on the internet.

As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home.
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"Barb was my friend before I was her client. I thought that if she was as good at her profession as she was at being a friend than why would I list my home with anyone else. I was not disappointed. She listed, marketed and sold our home in record time for close to asking price. Our closing was arranged in a timely manner and she even arranged for it to be at our new location so that we did not have to travel 4 hours round trip to close on the sale of our home. "
-Gail Jarvi, Friend

"Barb sold our home in six days!! She has the perfect blend of current experience, determination, and understanding of the community and is very easy to work with. She worked with us upfront to prepare our home for listing, recommended staging options to maximize potential and had everything in place for the open house. After the open house, multiple people were interested and we had an offer shortly afterward. This is the fourth house that she has helped us buy or sell and each time, it has been a great experience. I would highly recommend Barb if you are interested in buy or selling a home. "
-Orlando Figueredo, Client
"Barb was an excellent and very informative agent. Being a first time buyer. She made sure i understood everything and even pointed out things I should be aware of. I wouldn't have anyone else help other than Barb. The negotiation process was so smooth, thanks to her expert knowledge in the field. I'm so happy with my home that she helped me get. I would recommend her to each and everyone of you."
"Barb was beyond helpful with our home-buying process. As first-time homeowners we had absolutely no idea what we were doing, and she was incredibly patient and clearly knowledgeable on all aspects from start to finish. Highly recommend, and if we move in the area again would definitely reach back out for her help."
