Cutler Real Estate asked Barbara a few questions so you can get to know her better, and here are Barbara's replies.
1. What is your professional/educational background?
My educational background includes a Bachelors in Music Education from The Ohio State University. I was a full-time music teacher in Brevard County Florida for 10 years. Prior to teaching I was a graphic designer for the Harmon Homes magazine, making real estate ads for other realtors. I received my Real Estate Education from Hondros College in Green, Ohio and have been a licensed realtor since March 2016.
2. Why did you choose a career in real estate?
I decided to make a career change when I returned to Ohio after living in Florida for 11 years. I wanted a career with the freedom to create my own daily schedule, and to help others make their dream of home ownership come true. I enjoy representing both buyers and sellers and making sure their real estate experience goes as smoothly as possible, walking them through the process from start to finish.
3. What area do you live in currently and what do you like about where you live?
I have lived in many areas of Northeast Ohio. I grew up in Alliance (actually Maximo) but most people don’t know where that is! I have also lived in Cleveland, Columbus, Carrollton, Canton, Minerva, and now in Akron. I like living near Green, Ohio and one of the things I like the most about the area I live in is the Summit County Metro Parks.
4. How do you spend your free time?
When the weather cooperates, I love taking walks and hikes. I am an animal lover and have one dog and two cats. I enjoy spending free time with my animals, relaxing with a good inspirational book, or watercolor painting.
5. If you could only keep 5 possessions what would they be?
I would want to keep my animals. As long as I have my animals, everything else I have is replaceable.
6. In one word, how do you think your friends/family would describe you?
Adventurous – (Like a pirate, unafraid of the unknown)
