Even as a little girl living in Northeast Georgia, I had a fascination with homes. I got in trouble with my Mother on more than one occasion for peeping through windows of newly built or empty houses. When I entered a new friend's home for the first time, I not only wanted to see her room (as most little girls do), but I also wanted a complete tour of the property! This is just one of the many reasons that I knew residential real estate would be the career choice for me.
Charleston, SC is a place like no other; offering a remarkable, satisfying lifestyle. If you already live here, you know how great it is, and tell all your friends! If you are thinking about living here, I would appreciate an opportunity to introduce you to this wonderful area! With many years of experience in both real estate and mortgage financing, and my sincere desire to help, I can effectively assist you as a Buyer’s agent or as a Seller’s listing specialist
Prior to moving to South Carolina in 1989, I was a real estate licensee in Atlanta, Georgia for more than a decade. After attending college I moved to Atlanta, and over a period of years pursued a real estate career down a variety of paths. I have worked in all facets of real estate, including residential sales, residential mortgage loan origination, real estate marketing, new home sales administration, commercial property management, and Internet education for Realtors. As a result, I can offer a broad level of knowledge and experience to my clients and customers. Currently, I specialize in selling and listing properties within the West Ashley area of Charleston, and the surrounding areas of James Island and Johns Island. But, I am familiar with Mt. Pleasant, Summerville, No. Charleston and many other communities, and help clients through out the entire Charleston area. I also specialize in helping first time home buyers wade thru the often baffling process of purchasing and financing a home. If I can help you buy or sell a home anywhere in this great area, please contact me either by email, ator by phone at 843-810-9561. Or if you prefer, search in the MLS for properties thru out the entire area by going to my websites, www.HomeSweetCharleston.com or www.CharlestonRealtyAgent.com.

|I have and will continue to recommend Barbra to friends who are considering selling or buying. She was not only very professional but friendly as well. She worked with us for several years in selling our home and in buying a new one. If not for HER efforts selling of our home would have been delayed which would have resulted in loosing our new home. Barbra did the work of three agents to make the deals happen. I would not hesitate to ask for Barbara's help with ANY real estate issues......|

|Cassandra Waites (Buyer Client)|
|Barbara is a great agent. I chose her as my agent after meeting her. As a first time buyer, she educated me and informed me of all the necessary steps needed in the home purchasing process. Barbara spent countless hours with me as we viewed homes on a holiday. Barbara understood my needs, wants and desires; as some were realistic and unrealistic. I would recommend Barbara to a friend. She has years of experience and will be with you every step of the way.|

|Judy Pratt (Buyer Client)|
|Barbara is the local real estate agent who assisted me with the purchase of a home in Charleston when I relocated from Florida. We initially "met" over the phone, and she handled the entire transaction from start to closing, much of our communication being long distance. She is very knowledgeable re: the local real estate market, diligently researched properties that would meet our specifications, and provided contacts with other professionals in Charleston to insure a smooth closing. Barbara worked very hard on our behalf, and is a person of absolute integrity. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone home shopping in this area. We love Charleston and our new home, and Barbara had a lot to do with this positive outcome.|
|Kathleen Perry (Customer)|
|Barbara was a pleasure to meet and work with. She is a true professional determining what our needs were and providing information on exactly what we wanted. No pushing. No trying to get us to buy a home we couldn’t really afford. If you are buying or selling a home, Barbara is going to look after your interest. Her honesty and knowledge allows me to highly recommend Barbara Newton as your Realtor.”|
