I'm Barbara Metallo and when you move, I move for you. I'm a true California girl, born and raised in San Diego, and a graduate of Grossmont College. I began my management career in retail and met my husband working at the mall. I found my niche specializing in the jewelry industry. I loved having a small part in the beginning of couples unions. My husband, Jack and I, were married in 1985; that's when my knowledge of corporate relocating began. Because of work promotions and transfers, we moved many times, within California and across the country. In 1995, our daughter, Rachael, was born, and just a year later we relocated from Massachusetts to Florida. Our Realtor during that move suggested I make an industry leap to real estate due to relocating so many times and my knowledge of the process. I became her assistant where I learned the ins and outs of the business with a baby in tow. Once I was licensed and no longer her assistant, I found professional success at a high level during my first year and won the "Rookie of the Year Award" for our office. I am passionate about the needs & goals of my clients. I will focus on taking the pressure off of you, so you can make clear and concise decisions throughout the process. To earn your trust, I will keep you informed of the process and welcome your involvement. Through unparalleled professionalism, high ethical standards, and being an honest hard-working agent, I will do everything in my power to ensure every detail of your real estate transaction is successful. As a multi-million dollar producer, I"ve been involved in listing and selling luxury homes, single-family homes, vacant land, waterfront properties, and new construction projects for over 33 years with 20 of those years as a Realtor. I have first hand experience with building and remodeling homes. I know that each property is unique; therefore, you will receive my utmost care and accurate knowledge specifically tailored to your property needs. Thankfully, my exceptionally loyal clientele, personal referrals and repeat business helped form the foundation of my real estate career. Ultimately, a "successful sale" is my main goal. I still utilize what I learned early on, listening, customer service and expertise, to make that happen for you. Please give me a call anytime. I am ready to help you today!
