My number one priority in life is family. I’m an old-fashioned homebody, so I understand why having a comfortable place to live is of prime importance. The size of a family doesn’t matter. You could have ten kids, three dogs and a cat or be happily single. A safe place to call home is what makes life worth living for everyone.

As first-time homebuyers, we could not have asked for a better realtor than Barbara. She guided us through every step of the way with support, patience, and professionalism that exceeded our expectations. Barbara’s expertise and market knowledge are well beyond those of other realtors we worked with, which made her an invaluable resource to us throughout the entire process. She answered our (many) emails and phone calls promptly and maintained a high level of communication with the lender, sellers’ agent and attorneys to facilitate a smooth closing on our new home. Her positive attitude and amiable personality made her a pleasure to work with, and we would highly recommend her to anyone seeking an experienced, reliable realtor!

Barbara Altieri was by my side all through the process. If it wasn’t for Barbara, I would not have been able to do it. A friend of mine gave me Barbara’s number. I wasn’t so happy with my current real estate agent at the time. Selling my condo with Barbara was easy. We had a great sale and although the purchase of my new home was a challenge (it was a short sale), Barbara spent the time and had the skill to pull it all together for me. Her positive attitude about everything made the difference.

We had a great experience working with Barbara when we needed renters for our condo. She is a dedicated, driven professional who’s caring and compassionate attitude make her unique and very easy to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate business, has great follow-through, high energy, dedication and you know she’s working for you. Barbara was in tune with our needs and expectations and gave 150% of her time and effort. In addition, she is very personable, has a great sense of humor and I would (and have) strongly recommended her to anyone looking for the ultimate real estate agent

I have a testimonial for you. My husband and I were helped by the wonderful Barbara Altieri. She was great. We were looking for an apt. in the town of Shelton CT and she was the only one to help. We called the real estate company that was taking care of the apt. and never got a call back until 6 days later. By that time Barbara had already showed us the apt and started the process of renting it. I have never worked with such a wonderful pleasant and kind person like her. She really went above and beyond what she had to do to help us. Even with the rental agreement she worked out issues that helped us more than she knows. I would like to thank you and your team for having a great person out there making us feel more than just another person. My husband and I will be looking for a house in about 1 to 2 years and we will be using her to help us with this. Thank you again, p.s. we love our new apt.

I met Barbara Altieri at an open house – we did not have an agent. Barbara responded immediately to my emails and calls. I found the emails she sent to me with updates very helpful. Her customer service was excellent! I would definitely recommend and use Barbara Altieri again
