    My Client Testimonials

    Very stressful time made easier working with Barbara.f ~ Agnes Johnson
    Barbara Hanaway is extremely professional and a pleasure to work with. She understood all our needs and exactly what we were looking for. After the purchase and sales agreement was signed, unexpected issues posed by a probate court delayed sale of the property by the previous occupants children. Barbara introduced all parties to an excellent attorney who knew exactly what to do and worked closely with the seller, the buyer and Barbara to rapidly resolve these issues and close the sale. I would highly recommend Barbara Hanaway to anyone looking for property in Tiverton Rhode Island. Barbara is a wealth of information and even though we have moved into the property ,she is always available to provide us with excellent referrals ranging from painters and contractors to the best restaurants in the area. ~ Robert Bishop 71 Starboard Drive, Tiverton, Rhode Island
    Barbara went above and beyond my expectations from listing my property to the closing. She was always accessible and kept me informed at all times. I have recommended Barbara to friends and neighbors for her personal approach and attention to detail. I am beyond happy that I chose Barbara to handle my sale. MaryAnne Plante ~ Mary Anne Plante, Tiverton, RI
    Selling my home was a difficult decision which took an extended period of time. At all times, even with the passage of time, Barbara Hanaway had consistently made herself available to me and was always prompt in her responses to my queries. Before making a final decision in choosing Barbara Hanaway as my agent, this was markedly so, compared other realtors I had interviewed. Barbara Hanaway went above and beyond throughout this entire process. I will always remember her unrelenting attention to detail, assistance with readying property for viewing and her kindness and support throughout this process. I have and will recommend Barbara Hanaway to others. I've praised Barbara to friends and acquaintances for her timeliness, personal approach and her great attention to detail. Throughout the process, she seemed to anticipate my needs and provided information sufficient to the issue at hand. Barbara was always available and responsive to any question or concern that I had. If she was out of town, she would inform me beforehand and let me know that at her first opportunity would she would respond. Typically, all calls and emails were responded to promptly. Communications were clear and all encompassing, so there were never any surprises during this process. In encounters with other realtors, it's evident that Barbara has their respect and is held in high regard. In short, Barbara Hanaway's professionalism, attention to detail, kindness and "personal touch" make her an invaluable asset to anyone she represents, as well as to your organization. ~ NT McCarron, Tiverton RI
    It was a pleasure doing business with Barbara and we would be happy to recommend her to family and friends. ~ Edythe De Marco Pawtucket,RI
    Barbara Hanaway put a big effort into staging the property, and performed many tasks above and beyond normally required of a broker, such as meeting maintenance contractors on site and arranging for various repairs. It was a difficult closing due to a lot of concerns by the buyers that needed to be addressed, and Barbara kept the process on track until closing. I would like to thank Barbara and the staff at Century 21 Hallmark Topsail Realty for all the extra effort it took to bring this transaction to closing. I am grateful that we worked with them, and would choose them again if we ever thought of purchasing real estate again in Rhode Island. It was a pleasure working with Barbara Hanaway. Communications were excellent throughout the process. ~ David Weinberg, Brookline, MA
    Barbara Hanaway goes far beyond expectations, from helping out with or coordinating issues, and is always accessible. In the three times we worked with Barbara she was so professional and involved. ~ John & Mary Hodgson Tiverton RI
    Barbara assisted me completely in each aspect of the process. Based on her experience and her intimate knowledge of our local market, Barbara suggested an aggressive pricing strategy, helping me to get the very best value for my home. Barbara assisted me in the completion of all the related paperwork involved. She professionally staged my home, hi lighting all the important aspects buyers are looking for. By the time she was done, my home never looked better. At that point, she created a professional presentation of pictures and a 3D rendering of my home. Because of all her background work, within 48 hours of my listing hitting the MLS, an offer was made and accepted and a signed contract was executed. Because of all of her efforts, I was able to accept an offer that was for over 98% of my asking price. I cannot describe how "painless" and transparent Barbara made the whole process. If you are looking for someone who will be completely dedicated to you throughout the entire process, then look no further. Barbara is THE agent you want on your side. Honestly, Barbara's efforts exceeded all of my expectations of the role of an agent. Thank you so much Barbara for all your efforts on my behalf, and more importantly, your friendship. ~ Paul H. Medeiros Miami, FL
    She did a great job marketing the property. She understands the Condo market at the Villages of Mt. Hope Bay really well. Would hire and recommend her to anyone that wants to sell their condo at this property. ~ Greg Spier Portsmouth, RI
    Barbara Hanaway was able to sell our property by working with multiple parties, each of whom had their own needs and goals. She was able to balance all of this, and was able to help all parties reach the compromises needed to get the deals done. She is a pleasure to work with, and my wife and I would gladly call on her if needed again. ~ David Weinberg, Brookline, MA
