    I loved working with Barbara. She went out of her way to help on the sale of my house. She always answered phone calls and paid attention to details. I would recommend her to anyone with a need for a realtor.

    From the beginning when we met Barb she made us feel as if she had known us. We grew to trust her judgment, attention to detail. She let us know that she works for us and any questions we have she would tell us the truth. Over months of looking for a home that was the right fit for us, she learned very quickly what we wanted and began to show us up to three houses a day for 2 to three days a week. Even times when I wanted to give up she explained in detail how this process worked in a time when interest rates were low as they are now. That gave me encouragement to stay with it. She went above and beyond what we ever expected. She was even there at our closing and still giving us support. We rate her beyond excellent. SHE WAS ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING!!! We will send everyone that wants to buy a home to her.

    Barbara is willing to work with you about seeing homes makes it easier on me because I work out of town and was not back until late at night to see homes. She didn't let me jump into anything to fast. Gave me a chance to really look at the houses available. She made sure I was comfortable and happy about my choice . Now I am a proud home owner!

    My wife and I looked at different properties for over a year before making our final decision. Barbara was there every time we had a question and checked in regularly to see if there was anything she could do to help us in our search. There was never any pressure to speak of.

    Being a first-time home buyer was a bit stressful but Barb held my hand through the whole process answered all my crazy questions - within minutes and without hesitation. She is extremely knowledgeable in the whole process (from A-Z and more) has an amazing eye for details. Positive, upbeat and does not give up! She does her homework regarding neighborhoods, stores, property etc. Her honesty and communication were excellent!

    This was my first time buying a home and Barb was incredible as an agent. She stayed on top of things every step of the way and she was great at explaining the process from the very beginning. She checked in with me almost every day and I trusted her 1000% to help me make the best decisions for myself and my daughter. She knew the ins and outs of buying a home and she made it so easy! Even when I would begin to feel anxious she kept me calm. I will recommend her as an agent to anyone I know looking to buy or sell their home. She's the best!

    I will recommend Barbara to everyone. If you had 10 stars I would have given her that. She went over everything with me and stayed on top of every question.

From the first day we put the for sale sign out to closing she was always on top of it.even through the lock download she did everything possible. She is Great!!

    She is definitely a 'œget it done' person. She took ownership of others downfalls just to ensure a smooth transaction. I will be using her services in the future. She exemplified what every home buyer is looking for in a professional world. She gets the best rating I could possibly give.

    Barb is amazing! She was extremely responsive and had great suggestions for homes to view based on what we were looking for. All throughout the negotiations and closing Barb was there to quickly answer any questions and handle any issues that we encountered. If the time ever comes when we're looking for a new home again, I will definitely call Barb to help us out.

    Steve gave Barbara 5 stars out of 5
    Where do I start.... Barbara has gone above and beyond to finally find the house that was just right for us. Barbara knowing my schedule was hectic, has always been proactive in returning my emails, text's, and questions,in a timely manner either late at night or early in the morning. And when I say early I mean before 5 AM, it did not matter what time it was, she has and still is constantly working to get us where we needed to be. A few examples were making request to the health department for information, talking with the selling clients real estate representative in our behalf even when it wasn't so pleasant, driving to all ends of the earth, going into houses that dare I say a lot of people would not step foot in. Barbara has been and still is steadfastly working in our behalf even after we have closed on the property that we bought, and her wealth of experience an knowledge is unmatched and key in making our decisions on which property was best suited for us with checking our wish list boxes. I can tell you she has spent a considerable amount of time and driving countless miles showing us houses over the past 2 years. I have purchased several houses over the years, and I have worked with several other realtors, and I can tell you that in my opinion Barbara is the best in her field, when Barbara goes to work for you she is committed to meeting your needs regardless of what she has to sacrifice. I will definitely be staying in touch with Barbara and would highly recommend that you use Barbara as your realtor you will not be disappointed. Thank Barbara DeTota for the exceptional job that you have done, I don't think they pay you enough.. Peggy and myself could not be happier. All the best Barbara, Stephen Horton

    Working with Barb in purchasing our Eastern Shore home was an absolute pleasure!! Barb took away the stress, worries, and anxieties of the whole process! We looked forward to our trips to the "Shore" in order to find our dream home. Barb took the time to get to "know" us and our wants, and never tried to sell us a house, she put in 100% of her efforts to find us our "home"!!! After we found our home, Barb was amazing in taking care of all finalities and following through till the deal was complete! You will not find another agent with more knowledge, trustworthiness, detail oriented, and desire or drive to find you your new "home"!!!

    Barbara was absolutely amazing! She worked so hard helping us get our new home. We had so many set backs with other parts of the process and she helped us get through every one of them. She kept on top of everything and when we did have issues she fought hard to make others get the job done and to do it right. When we needed a new loan Barbara kept people updated and helped us through it all. Our dream of owning a home would not have happened without her and I highly recommend everyone give her a call. I can honestly say Barbara is one of the best real estate agents you will ever find.

    First time buying a home is super overwhelming, Barb was there each step of the way. She was honest with her feedback and went above and beyond to make sure I understood each step.

    Barbara DeTota has done a wonderful job for me. She sold me the home of my dreams and is a stellar agent. She answers all of your questions, she put together a book at the end of the sale of all the pictures, inspections, etc. I also had her as the listing agent on a townhouse I am selling. She is very attentive and answers all requests immediately. I would highly recommend having her as your agent.

    I don't believe that I could have found a better realtor to work with, she got to know my likes and dislikes. Barbara knew what I would like just seeing the place herself. I would tell anyone I knew looking for a place to live call Barbara, she great to work with.

    Barbara was a GODSEND! As first-time home buyers, and new to the shore, we had no idea what we even wanted. She was patient, responsive, and dedicated to our search. A true blessing!!! She helped us realize what we wanted in a home, she was mindful of showing us houses in our price range, and she only showed us homes within the location we wanted. She was fantastic to work with and worked around our crazy schedule. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home. She is incredible.

    Barbara is extremely professional and dedicated to her clients. My first time out with her we toured a few homes and as we discussed each house, the amount of information she was able to gather from me regarding my likes and dislikes through simple conversation was mind blowingly evident on our second trip as each house we toured that day I simply loved. I'd reccomend Barbara without question, to friends and family, and I'll definitely ask her to help me in the future. Thank you Barbara!

    As a first time buyer i had no idea what i was doing. Barbara helped me through every step of the home buying process in a manner i could describe as knowledgeable, professional, Trustworthy and courteous considering my never ending questions. I was on a budget and we looked at many houses and it took a while to finally find the one that was just right, But then i had an issue with my bank. On Barbaras recommendation I contacted Patrick at The Mortgage Network and in less than a day i was ready to go with my 2nd pre approval and a lender that cares! I ended up getting the house i wanted at a great rate thanks to Barbara and couldn't be happier!

    Barb worked with us for 8 months, moving from another state. We had only certain days and times we could meet, and Barb made it work. We had a smaller budget, and less options to choose from. Barb went to house after house with us, until we all agreed on a perfect match. Barb was honest and upfront, and if she saw homes that could be a money pit for us, she kindly and respectfully guided us into a better direction. When we finally found the right home, we had some issues working with the seller(the bank), and Barb was on the phone daily trying to make it work out for all party involved. Barb reffered us to a local lender, who really had to jump through some hoops for us to get our mortgage lender, plus the seller to all agree on the right terms, and seal the deal. In the end we were all victourious, and toasted a bottle of champagne! Barb continued to follow up with us , even months after settlement. We plan to buy again in the next few years, and will be immediately calling Barb and her crew! Best of luck to the team at ERA and future home buyers!

    We received excellent service from Barbara. She gave us tips to prepare the house for sale and how to best show the house. She conducted a realtor's open house so that other realtors could see the property. Within 2 weeks, we had multiple offers which resulted in a full-price offer with no contingencies.

    Barbara took her time to figure out exactly what we were looking for an only showed us those homes. She didn't waste our time. She went over and beyond for us. If we couldn't make it took look at a house she went for us an we completely trusted what she had to say about the home. We looked at many homes and never felt pressured. She didn't just want to sell us a house she wanted us to find our home! An she did just that! She has a true passion for what she does an that's what you need going through this process. Barbara wil help you find your dream home!
