    Barbara Powell was recommended by a realtor friend in Saratoga Springs, NY. As I knew no one in South Carolina, I relied on this recommendation. Barbara was very thorough and professional at all times. She helped me each step of the way, especially when I wasn't able to be here. I don't feel this transaction would have happened so smoothly without her help. Barbara showed me many properties. She listened to what I had to say about each to determine what I was really looking for in a property. Once she determined the criteria that mattered to me, she showed me properties more in line with what I wanted. When I went in to the office to drop off my earnest money, the staff treated me very well. I believe I interrupted their lunch hour but it didn't seem to matter to them. I would use Beach and Forest Realty and especially Barbara Powell again.

    Barbara Powell was a breath of fresh air. She understood the stressful situations I have been through. She made this experience much easier, guiding me through the processes and requirements, as this home sale was a long-distance transaction. Barbara handled all situations that arose and kept me well informed. I highly recommend Barbara Powell for both local and interstate transactions.

    We are from NY and trusted the referral to Barbara Powell from a very good friend who currently lives in Myrtle Beach, SC. It was important for us to deal with not only someone we could trust, but also was familiar with Myrtle Beach and the surrounding towns. Barbara remained "on the ball" from beginning to end of the purchase of our home. She understood the frustration of purchasing a home from out of state and our time constraints to close on a designated date. Barbara has a lovely personality and we loved her immediately! She spent much time with us showing us the area and paying close attention to what our needs were. Barbara goes above and beyond every single day. We trust her implicitly and she has made this transition from NY to SC so much easier! We were referred a real estate agent and we made a new friend! I would feel confident in recommending Barbara to anyone!

    Barbara was very active in searching property that closely matched our requirements. She was patient, understanding, and supportive of all our needs and wants. Barbara is also involved in searching for an assistant living facilities for my mother. She has been extremely helpful. She always keeps us informed by personal calls and email. Barbara was proactive in calling us immediately after our internet inquire. We had a great discussion during our first telephone interaction and immediately knew that we could work well together. When my wife found Barbara on the internet and after a short while working with her, we found her to have all the qualifications identified above.

    When I met Barbara she was setting up an open house. I wandered in and she stopped what she was doing to show me the place. Welcomed me in and was patient with my questions. When I asked if I could stop by later she said of course. She was so nice and helpful with her suggestions once I decided to purchase. She was available from the start to finish and was never "too busy" to take my call or text. Barbara Powell really helped me with this purchase and I felt in good hands from start to finish. She is a person who will go above and beyond the call of duty and I appreciate her for such wonderful treatment and concern.

    Besides being a very nice person, Barbara Powell is truly a professional is the real estate business. We interviewed other agents from recommendations and hands down Barbara clearly knows the market better. Barbara sold our property for the value we wanted and handled the whole process from contract to closing. We could not have asked from a better person to sell our property. Please thank Barbara for us. Thank you Dan & NANCY

    Barbara was fantastic! We needed an agent to do the legwork for us as we do not live in South Carolina. She went above and beyond what I know most realtors would do. She met with the new home builder and placed us on speaker while helping us negotiate what was to be included and excluded in our newly built home. She regularly went to the job site and took pictures of the house being built! She was a vital part of successful contract negotiations. We tried working with several realtors over the past 3 years and none of the realtors took the time to listen to what our needs were. They never bothered to keep contact with us. We asked to have listings sent to us when we left so we could continue to shop for our next home. We were beginning to lose hope we would find a realtor that would be willing to do the work needed to help us find the right home for us. Until we found Barbara. Thank you Barbara!!

    Barbara was such a huge help! She sent me lots of houses to look at immediately and did a lot of foot work for me when gathering information on homes because my husband and I were not able to physically be in South Carolina to look around at homes. Even after the purchase of my home she always checks up on us to see if she can help us in anyway because our builders were not the best (DR Horton). She would even send me information on potential places for me to find a job, daycares and other local information. I will definitely be using her again when we go to sell our house. She was the best!

    This is our second time using Barbara as our selling agent. She gave maximum effort and used up-to-date marketing resources to ensure a timely sale. She was available for any questions and concerns throughout the process. I would recommend Barbara for anybody who is looking to buy or sell in the Grand Strand area.

    Barbara seemed very knowledgeable at our initial meeting and understood our needs. After listing our property with her, Barbara kept us informed with feedback after each showing. She communicated to us on a regular basis about the progress of our sale.

    Barbara came highly recommended by a friend of ours who had also recently relocated to SC and purchased a new home. We knew from our very contact conversation with Barbara, that she would be the right person for us to work with. Barbara did a great job keeping us informed on the ever changing status of our purchase progress. I’m sure that couldn’t have been the easiest thing to do, since we were working from far way, but she did a great job! Barbara is an excellent asset to your company, and we are very glad to have been given this survey opportunity to speak on her behalf. We have dealt with some very good realtors in the past, but Barbara was BY FAR, the best one yet! She handled our needs so well that she will always be our Go To Real Estate representative for any future needs... a keeper! Although we dealt with Barbara most exclusively, we do realize that there are many other support staffers behind the scenes working toward the common goal to get things done efficiently and professionally for each and every client. It is for this reason that I chose to comment in this box ...to give a BIG kudos to all, and say thank you! Thanks to all for a job well done!
