A licensed real estate agent and project manager, Barb also manages Trinity Property Management and Trinity Church Management -- boutique real estate services firms founded to support the needs of real estate clients.
Says Barb, "We founded Trinity in response to a recurring situation: clients would contacts us to sell their property, but before the property could be listed, it needed substantial work to make it safe, habitable, and appealing to a buyer. It was our job to take a marginal property and restore it to its full dollar potential."
"To prepare properties for sale," Barb explains, "we do what needs to be done. We have handled site cleanup -- including tires, asbestos, construction debris, fuel, and USTs. We have also handled major construction projects: shoring up roofs and walls in historic buildings, electrical repairs, and even restoring plumbing systems when copper pipe was stripped from vacant buildings. From construction to cleaning to staging and open houses, Trinity can handle it all."
Having worked with Hewlett-Packard and The Disney Companies, Barb is a believer in stellar customer service. She brings her special brand of service and organization to her work with the other brokers at Maryland Land Advisors.
