    Barbara O'Connor

    Barbara moved to Sun City in 2015 and quickly grew her business. In 2018 her business increased by 200% and in doing so she has ranked in the top five selling Realtors in all of Sun City for resales each year. So much of her success has come from past client referrals and her neighbors here in Sun City. She is consistently ranked in the top five sales agents in Sun City.

    Barbara works out of the CENTURY 21 Diamond Realty Sun City Office.

    Barbara became a licensed full-time REALTOR® in 1998 in Ohio building a highly successful real estate business. She is passionate about real estate and works very diligently and always works in her client¿s best interest. She takes her responsibility as a REALTOR® very seriously. Barbara feels buying or selling a home is the single most important financial transaction most people ever make in their lifetime, and it should be handled with care.

    Barbara brings over 23 years of experience and knowledge to each and every transaction. She has sold over 400 homes equaling over $100 million in sales. She believes that she is not ONLY here to list and sell homes but to provide you with the highest quality real estate service.

    For 2020 & 2021, Barbara was awarded the CENTURY 21 Masters Ruby Producer and the not easily acquired 2020 CENTURY 21 Quality Service Producer Award. This award is given only to those who receive consistent excellent ratings from their clients.

    In August of 2019 Barbara received her SRES Designation, Seniors Real Estate Specialist. This has provided her with additional training and knowledge to help those over 55 years and older move through the process of buying and selling their retirement home and onto independent or assisted living.

    In addition, Barbara received her ASP Stager Designation in 2017 which offers her sellers the opportunity to present their home for sale in the best possible light and provide her buyers with great tips.

    Barbara loves living, playing, and selling the lifestyle Sun City, Bluffton and Hilton Head Island has to offer. She says moving to Sun City Hilton Head was a great decision!

    Prior to 1998, Barbara worked in the medical field for many years. As an adult, she has resided in Ohio, Texas, and Florida. After leaving Miami, FL in 1996 she moved back to her hometown of Hudson, Ohio where she lived and raised her two daughters prior to moving to Sun City six years ago. Barbara's family immigrated to the United States from Liverpool, England in 1962.

    Barbara O'Conner was very detailed , knowledgeable and helpful before, during and after the purchasing process. Barbara O'Conner was very warm, friendly and supportive of our needs and the process. We felt so comfortable with her communication, detail, knowledge and support to our needs that we ended up going to contract within 24 hours and purchasing site unseen as we are from out of state. Barbara O'Conner's husband Michael took the time to call us directly and review and explain the ongoing Dell Webb Sun City stucco lawsuit situation which gave us confidence in our understanding to move forward with purchase offer.

    Barbara O¿Connor deals primarily in Sun City, however her skills can be utilized across the low country. Knowledgeable, professional, patient, kind, responsive, respectful. She is the complete package. Above all, her dedication to her buyers and sellers is second to none. We bought in Beaufort and cannot thank her enough for working thru this deal.

    see first page.....testimonial written there. Barbara was excellent in all and every aspect regarding the sale of our housel Would highly recommend Barbara for your realtor needs. ~ cynthia rauschberg boca raton florida
    Barbara made sure I was kept abreast of all developments with both properties. When the first contract ran into title issues, she was in frequent contact to make sure I was aware of what was happening. Once that contract was terminated, because of the title issues, she once again jumped into my property search with both feet. She always made herself available to speak with me about any issues or concerns. All messages were immediately acknowledged & returned within short order. Barbara went out of her way to make sure I understood what was happening and what the next step would be. I have recommended her services to several family & friends who are interested in moving to this area. She is currently working with one who has told me how happy she is with the recommendation. ~ Susan N. Andersen Bluffton,SC
