`The busiest person always gets things done.`This holds true for you, Barbara, who in spite of being an extremely busy real estate agent, always took the time to answer our questions and provide advice regarding the listing of our home in Kanata. We appreciated the many hours you spent on the staging of the house to present it in the best light for potential buyers and we are sure that your vivid description of it on your website and in various publications attracted the many visitors who viewed the property and resulted in three offers within a short timeframe. Your professional approach as your outgoing personality made it a pleasure to work with you. We recommend you highly as the real estate agent of choice to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell a property now or in the near future.

We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you so much for your services as our REALTOR® in both the sale of our house and the purchase of our beautiful new home! In deciding to take the next step on possibly selling, there was no question who we wanted as our real estate agent. I had seen your name across town, in both Carleton Place and Almonte on signs with SOLD across them…made the decision fairly easy, as we weren't interested in a lengthy sale process. We were pleased with the initial appraisal you gave us, but then decided to wait until spring to put our house on the market. I was totally surprised when I called to find that you had a house for us to look at without really knowing what it was we were looking for. Jennifer sent me the MLS®® listing, and after viewing it, we decided that was the house we wanted. The whole process of selling and buying only took a period of 2 weeks!! Since this was the first time we’ve sold a home, we relied upon your experience to make certain decisions for us and were totally pleased with the outcome. The level of confidence and professional manner you displayed was always reassuring to the both of us. Again, a huge thanks to both you and Jennifer for your dedication, I would recommend your team to anyone in a heartbeat!!

"Before we put our property on the market, we did our homework. We watched what signs went up, and came down, in our neighbourhood. Week after week, we looked through all the local real estate publications and visited real estate web sites, tracking what sold, after how long, and by whom. Then we called Barbara to sell our house for us. Throughout the entire process, Barbara and her incredibly competent team gave us all manner of professional advice and support. We were always kept up-to-date. Every time we spoke to her, we felt we had the complete focus of Barbara's attention... And of course, Barbara sold our home for us!"

"I am pleased to say that the closing date of our home at 2072 Ave P took place this past June 26, 2003. Barbara, I can't praise you enough for your exceptional service. Without question, your expertise facilitated the quick sale of our house. You and your team live up to your reputation of being experts. In 30 years of buying and selling homes, I have never met anyone like you. I believe it is the combination of real estate skill combined with your good taste and superb decorating talent that gives you an edge over most REALTORS®. At our first appointment you guided us effortlessly through the process and assisted us in portraying our home in the most attractive light. Ten days later the house was sold for our asking price and the profit will be used for my daughter's education in Wales. As you know Barbara, we are not from Ottawa and had to rely on the recommendation of a personal friend from Sarnia who happens to be a very successful RE/MAX REALTOR® as well. He highly recommended you and was very impressed with the awards you had received in the real estate industry. We will be sending him a thank you note to let him know how grateful we are that he recommended you. As a businessperson myself, I truly admire your ability to identify the goal and immediately execute strategies that enable a home to sell quickly. Ultimately this meant that we avoided months of strangers touring the house. Barbara you are professional in every sense of the word. It was a pleasure working with you and I will most certainly recommend you to anyone who is purchasing or selling a home in the Ottawa area. In closing, our sincere thanks for a job well-done!"
...Warm Regards, Susan Pearson

We will be glad to pass on your name in the future. Alex and I wish you well and all the best today and in the future."
...Many, many thanks, Al & Veronica
"I was a client of Barbara Couch for a brief period of tie & found that she & her staff were very helpful in making this difficult transition a lot easier. I had to sell my home because my husband had passed away & it was too difficult for me to look after the house & property. This was a house that we had worked very hard for several years to make it our dream home. Barbara Couch & her group made the selling of my house look easy & they sold it very quickly for the amount I wanted. They were very quick at getting it on the MLS® & the Internet. An open house was put together in the first week with great results. Barbara Couch & her staff are a very professional, fast pace, kind & courteous group who make you feel very comfortable when dealing with them. I would recommend them to my friends & family or anyone who is trying to sell their house. Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart."
"Working with you Barbara has been a wonderful experience. IT was like we had known you our whole lives! You were sensitive to the emotions one goes through when selling the home that has seen your children grow up in and the millions of experiences that go on in a busy household. I have recommended you to a number of friends & acquaintances who will go on to form a larger fan club when they use your professional services."

"It is a rare treat to meet a person of passion. Barbara is such a person. She lives her work with sparkling vitality... In other words, she knows her "stuff" at a glance and she does everything with passion and flare... We interviewed six real estate agents and selected Barbara hands down. She felt like the best in her field and she proved herself to be the best... Barbara treats you like a friend and you can honestly trust her because her intentions (and actions) are no doubt honourable.. When it comes to the final crunch, whether you are buying or selling, she will amaze you with her speed and diligence at pulling things together. She is well connected with the community's best service people. I respect that Barbara Couch is the best."
...Sincerely, Su McManus
"Two years ago, Barbara came recommended to us by a friend. She helped us successfully sell our house in Carleton Place for 98% of the asking price and with the closing date we wanted! So, it was no surprise that we called Barbara to help us find a new home two years later when moving back to the area from Toronto. With her help, we quickly found an adorable house in our price range... Barbara knows her stuff and looks out for her clients. We will not hesitate to recommend Barbara to all our friends and family. She is a true gem!"

"In the search for our new home we dealt with 3 real estate agents over a period of 1 year, the last was Barbara Couch. When we found our home, she didn't leave us with a pocket full of change. When we met with our builders she was there; when we met with our contractor, she was there; when we needed advice, she was there. Barbara Couch is a well informed, personable, responsible professional who gets results. Without a doubt, we would not only use Barbara's services again, but would highly recommend her to family and friends."
