I have been a licensed agent for over 25 years and I love it when the right house collides with the right buyer! I was born and raised in Cleveland and I LOVE the wonderful things that have happened in our city over the last several years. Great development has happened on the east bank with enhancements all over downtown. Play house Square is the 2nd largest theater district in the country! Our sports teams have had some great success too! Come to Cleveland. You will love it here! I will do everything I can and put my experience to work for you to find you a great home!
On a personal note, my husband and I and have one beautiful daughter, who is a physician assistant. Our family sings together in the church choir and has since our daughter was a baby. We love seeing a great production at Playhouse Square!

My RE/MAX office is located in Brecksville Ohio, a community that shares a school system with Broadview Heights, which is where I have lived since 1990. In addition to Brecksville and Broadview Heights, I also work in N. Royalton, Independence, Seven Hills, Parma, Parma Heights, Middleburg Heights, Strongsville, Richfield, Hinckley, and Sagamore Hills.
From 1996-2006 I worked for a builder selling new construction, so I definitely have first hand knowledge of the custom home building process.
I even went through it personally when my husband and I had a home custom built for ourselves.
I look forward to working with you!

|Barb was our realtor this year (2019) for the sale of our home. She was very responsive to our phone and email contacts. She has a strong knowledge of the area near our home which helped with the sale. Barb is honest and objective with the details of the home selling process and is very professional in her approach to the sale of the home. She was able to answer all of the many questions we had during the process of selling our home. I have the highest trust in her ability to sell a home. We have now purchased two and sold two homes with Barb and we had a great experience with all of the transactions. We felt we were in good hands at all times. I highly recommend her for the sale or purchase of a home
|Barb was extremely helpful and knowledge throughout the entire process of buying my home. She quickly learned what I was looking for and provided me with her honest opinion of a home while also giving me the space to make my own choices throughout the process. I would highly recommend Barb to anyone looking for a home!
|We had the pleasure of working with Barb in selling our Broadview Hts. home. She was there for us every step of the way. She was very thorough and made sure every detail was taken care of. I cannot recommend her enough.
|Excellent realtor, couldn't recommend more highly. Low pressure and really wants to make sure you will get a house you are happy with. Our home buying experience lasted over a year and Barb could not have been more patient and understanding. So pleased with our experience"
|Was very helpful, I had no prior knowledge to how to handle this . She took me step by step. Very caring , will highly recommend to friends an family.
|Carol and Dennis S.
|"Barb is a full service real estate agent. She works at her job 7 days a week, returns all phone calls and emails and locates answers to questions about potential purchase homes and real estate dynamics. Barb spent a huge amount of time helping us find a home to purchase in the Cleveland area before our move from Florida. We had a number of trips from Florida to search for a home and Bard handled the showing each time we arrived in Cleveland and provided information to us while we were in Florida. We found Barb's knowledge of construction very helpful. Numerous times she called our attention to construction issues and/or lot concerns...very helpful !! Another service we found extremely helpful was Barb's knowledge of the real estate business and her push on listing agents to perform on making a possible sale by providing additional information and responses to our questions about potential homes to purchase...very helpful."
|Barb goes above and beyond to make sure you find the right house without any hesitation. I worked with Barb for about 5 months and we located a cute home that fit my needs. If you want an agent who cares about your well-being as a home owner, do NOT pass on her. You will regret not having her work for you
|Barb was fantastic to work with. As a first-time home buyer, we had no idea what we were getting into or what to look for. Barb took her time, took us to as many houses as wanted to see, and helped us figure out what exactly it was that we wanted in a house. She also helped us learn what to look for when it came to things like water damage in the basement because that was a very important part of a house for us. When it came time to put an offer in on a house, Barb helped walk us through the whole process and gave us some guidance/ideas around how to set up an offer since we had no idea what we were doing at all. She was always there with advice, and was readily available once we started the closing process on the house as well. Barb even went far above and beyond her job and was willing to answer questions well after we had closed on the house and received our keys.
|Barb was very honest with us every step of the way and made great suggestions on how to show our home in a way we were able to sell quickly. She was totally communicative about the feedback received and worked with us getting any inspections and repairs completed timely.
|My experience with Barb was excellent during the entire process of listing and selling our parents house. She had great knowledge of the area and process. She provided guidance during each step of the process to assist us in making decisions along the way. Her responsiveness was outstanding with quick return calls or text messages. She made the process easy to understand and was able to negotiate the best deal which exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend Barb for anyone looking for a realtor to buy or sell a home
|Brandon and Carleen P.
|Barb just helped myself and my husband find our first home, and we could not be happier with how helpful she was throughout the entire process. Barb is excellent at picking up on details around the houses we were viewing that would either be an expense early on or create one down the road. Her experience and attitude kept us practical but not discouraged as we looked at our various options until we found our perfect fit. Even after our purchase was finalized, Barb was there for us to answer any questions we had as she still cared about our wellbeing beyond the sale. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home!"
|Al and Diane P.
|Best real estate agent I have ever dealt with. Knowledgeable, honest, and extremely professional. You can’t go wrong using Barb! Have used Barb not only for representing our property but for advice on other potential real estate questions and advice. Al and Diane P. February 2018
|I found Barb online and had the challenge of selling a house while being located in another state. I am so glad I found her! She made the process extremely smooth and kept me informed every step of the way. The whole experience was very positive and I would highly recommend Barb to anyone looking for an experienced, capable and professional realtor. Kirsten G. November 2017
|Sharon and Harv W.
|She is the best! We cannot say enough good about Barb Szabo. She is a fantastic real estate agent who goes way beyond her job description! We encountered some issues with our home before selling it and she helped us every step of the way--recommending good repair people, making sure what they did passed code, and keeping us positive as things progressed. When we bought our new home she methodically explained all the paperwork required, went through the home inspection with us and made sure everything was done correctly. We sincerely recommend her and to us she is the best! Harv and Sharon W. July 2017
|I worked with Barb over 15 years ago and had a great experience. Barb is very thorough, knowledgeable, fair and responsive. When I needed a realtor this year, there was no question who to call. We experienced the same great service, responsiveness and expertise. Negotiations were quick and fair. My home sold quickly. I know I can rely and trust Barb for all my needs, and highly recommend her." Leslie R. May 2017
|Barb was absolutely amazing with her assistance in helping us find our new home! We started looking for a home while I was in my second trimester, and Barb definitely looked at every potential home with a critical eye towards how it would be with a new baby/young child! She always has her buyers' interests in mind and was able to work well with both the opposing realtor and contractors/inspectors. I cannot recommend Barb enough!" Jessica G. April 2017
|Barb was an amazing realtor. We worked with her on a cross country move from California to Cleveland. We traveled back twice to house hunt, once during the holidays, and she was willing to help us close to Christmas! We were very grateful for that. She made what should have been a more stressful experience so easy! Her expertise and attention to details were invaluable. We heard about her from a recommendation from a friend and we will continue to recommend her to anyone looking in the area." Lauren B. April 2017
|Awesome realtor. Always available to answer questions and showed me houses when she was sick and should have been resting. Even stayed up late to do a contract with me at 10pm.
|Paula and Russ I.
|Barb did a fantastic job working with us. We were in a time time crunch and she was able to help us find people to do the inspections on short notice. She went out of her way to help us with all the aspects of buying our home. We really appreciate all the time she put in helping us find our home.
|Barb focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice on how to promote our listing. Also, she was always prompt in replying at any time of the day or evening. When we saw our home listed, we were blown away. Her effort and hours of hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell our home really paid off. Our property went under contract the first week after we put it on the market and we received the offer at asking price. From start to finish, she was very responsive, kind, and a constant professional. Barb is definitely the best of the best real estate agent. I am more than happy to recommend her. It couldn’t have been a more pleasant experience. She did an amazing job!!! Thank you Barb!!
|Barb was great to work with; very knowledgeable and helpful. She always was available to answer any questions either by phone or email. I highly recommend Barb.
|Chris and Ron S.
|Barb is easy to work with and seems to always know our needs. She was always available and knowledgeable of her field of work. She led us thoroughly thru the process of selling our home.
|Steve and Melanie H.
|Top notch. Looks out for her clients. I would recommend Barb to everyone. Really helped us with our tough sell. Barb is always positive and says the right stuff. Barb is a great person and understands everyone's needs.
|The most professional realtor out there! Helped me through the entire process. She worked night and day making sure every detail was covered. I never felt so comfortable, she made me feel like I was her only customer!
|Barb is the best real estate agent! I wish she worked everywhere so I could use her where I am relocating. She helped us buy a condo in North Royalton and then helped us again when we sold it. She was the ultimate professional and looked out for us at every turn. I felt like she was expert in the area and was protecting my best interest at all times. If you are looking for a real estate agent, you should definitely choose Barb!
|Pat and Joe S.
|Barb Szabo is truly a five star real estate professional! We would highly recommend her to all serious buyers and sellers . Her local knowledge helped us sell our home quickly by using the best price for the area it was located. Since we lived in the house for a long time the process changed considerably and Barb was able to explaine and walk us through the process. Definitely a master when it comes to the real estate market. Barb was never too busy to answer our questions weather it was by phone, text or email. Her response time was immediate. Excellent negotiation skills are definitely put to the test when you are selling and buying in the same month, and she was able to accomplish this difficult task. Barb Szabo is a pleasant person to work with with a great personality, and very professional.
|Becky and John S.
|Barb is a true professional in the field. Knowledgeable and always prompt to respond, I would recommend Barb to anyone looking for a realtor. She has been our family's realtor for 23 years. Becky and John S. February, 2016
