“One often finds oneself conducting business with people who have marginal expertise and a poor work ethic. Working with Barbara Cowles was a different experience. Barbara displayed professionalism from our first meeting through the closing of both of our sales. She worked tirelessly on our behalf. Bravo, Barbara, for a job well done!- Kent and Cindy Owen
“In reflecting on the last year and our move, one of the best things was getting to know you! We loved working with you and know that your low-key, loyal approach will serve you well in your career.”-Julia and Bill Gibbons
