Barb Solyst

My goal in this business is to give each client the individual attention they deserve. Over the years, I’ve tried to see beyond the next sale. If I establish a valuable, long lasting relationship, my clients come back to me. Although technology has drastically changed the real estate world by speeding it up and making information more available, the first commission I earn is still your trust. I’m more than the agent who sells you a house. I’m your coach. Together, we make the team that finds the best solution to your real estate challenge.
