Passionate is the word that best describes my feeling about real estate. I dedicate myself to the well being of every client I work with to ensure that as buyers we find the perfect house and every part of the transaction progresses smoothly. As sellers, my number one objective is to make sure that I get them the highest price possible. This is more complicated than it might seem-in today’s fast paced market, preparing the house before listing it has become a necessary part of the process. The marketing of a house is complex and requires a targeted strategy unique to every house I list.
I have been in the real estate business for over 20 years, having started by career in the Caldwell area. When I joined Prominent Properties Sotheby’s International Realty, it gave me the opportunity to provide an even higher level of service to my clients. Sotheby’s is recognized for its global presence, and attracts buyers from all over the world. I have been a consistent member of the prestigious New Jersey Realtors Circle of Excellence Club every year since starting in the business at the bronze, silver and gold levels, having achieved the silver level for 2017. I have also been recognized as one of Prominent Properties top 25 producers and and a New Jersey Monthly magazine Five Star real estate agent.
Here’s what my most recent past clients say about my performance-
“Barbara Gargiulo acted as our broker in the sale of our home in West Orange last year (2017). She handled everything, including evaluation of the home, advertising, finding a buyer, assisting in the negotiations for the sale price, preparation of the home for sale, acquiring the documents and other items necessary for the closing. She was consistently supportive and helpful in all aspects of the process. My wife and I would heartily recommend her to anyone seeking a broker to represent them in selling their home.” Marty and Terry Cohen
“I was referred to Barbara Gargiulo by a friend to help sell my parents’s house and was very pleased. It was an especially hard time for me, as my dad had just passed and I really needed someone to help me with all the details of selling a house. Barbara was there to manage everything for me. She gave me excellent guidance and had a lot of experience and knowledge of the market. She was so helpful in explaining every step of the process. She was available to be at the house for contractors to fix things, engineers to come for estimates, and of course buyers to look at the house. She was kind and kept me apprised of everything when I had questions and was honest about her opinions of each matter. She proposed an efficient sale plan and arranged the staging and pictures of the house. The house sold in the very first week for a great price. Everything went smoothly down to the closing. I would highly recommend Barbara for anyone who wants to buy or sell their house.” Melanie Bienstock
