From kitchen remodel to celebrated career: Making a difference the Barbara O’Connor way
For Barbara, real estate is more than just a career – it’s a lifestyle. Spurred by a desire to enrich her family’s home life (and kitchen remodel), Barbara made the transition from stay-at-home mother to real estate sales professional. She has always viewed her profession as a calling, fostering a deep connection with each of her clients that goes beyond the transaction. Barbara doesn’t believe in relationships ending at transaction either; she views her clients as a part of the O’Connor extended family.
Barbara loves what she does, believing that both personal and professional relationships are the key to her success. As a Managing Broker, she mentors other brokers through every stage of their careers. Barbara doesn’t see others as her competition, and believes that sharing her expertise empowers others. Partnership is paramount for Barbara, whether it’s teaching another broker how to properly market themselves or passionately advocating for her clients. It really is a family affair for Barbara, who’s team includes her top-producing daughter, Hilary.
