"Barbara Criegern has been working as our agent in the selling of our house and buying another. Within a month she not only sold our house but found us another. She is the hardest working, most motivated, tireless person I know. No matter how busy Barbara is she never makes you feel rushed. Barbara always makes you feel like you are her most important clilent. My husband and I are very happy and will recommend her to anyone we know who is looking for a real estate agent." Fran Whitaker.
"Being 7 months pregnant, the prospect of finding a house in time for the baby was seemingly impossible and without Barb it never would have happened. She helped guide us through the process of buying our 1st home getting everything in order. So when 9 months later, Luke was transfered out of town, there was no doubt in our minds who we would call to help us sell our house. Once again our expectations were exceeded when our house sold 7 days after being listed for above what we wanted. This was due to all her hard work and knowledge and we highly recommend her to all our friends, family and anyone looking to buy or sell their home." Luke and Laura Hetu
A Little About Me...
I was born and raised in a small rural community south east of Peterborough and now live in Donwood, at the eastern edge of the city. I lived for a brief period in Toronto and Niagara but chose to return to the natural beauty of the Kawarthas. I have always worked in the service industry and actually owned my own restaurant. Personalized customer service is entrenched in my DNA! I am a single mother with two college aged children of whom I am very proud. My family and extended family have always supported me in my chosen profession and have become quite accustomed to the late hours and weekend work that are part of my career. I am a very driven person who takes pride in my work. Real Estate Sales is my full time career and my priority is the complete satisfaction of my clients. I believe that one of the best teachers is experience....I know what it means to work hard and to work smart.
