As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"Barbara and her team were exceptional. When our escrow encountered some complications due to a situation beyond our control, Barbara and her team were there to keep our escrow moving forward. It was such a relief to know that we always had someone in our corner who was working for the best interest for my family. We were so pleased with our experience, I can't imagine anything more they could have done for us."

  -Tim M., Client

"Barbara and Heather were phenomenal. It was clear they went above and beyond their usual duties to get us our dream home. They never made me feel like we were wasting their time looking at numerous homes. They made me feel like they truly cared about me finding that perfect home. I could not thank them enough."

  -Jackie B., Client

"I think that what was accomplished and how everything was completed in a timely and professional manner, there is little that could be done to better serve me in the future I look forward to having an experience like we had with Barbara and her team again in the future. What more can I say, this realtor knows exactly what is expected of her and her team and they deliver with diamond service and commitment to their client’s needs."

  -Robert and Christine H., Client

"I met Barbara Radke in 2009 when she just happened to be the Realtor doing an open house. We bought our home from Barbara back in 2010, she stayed in touch with us throughout the year and purchased our home. When it was time to sell my aunt's home we were stuck using someone else because my aunt had an agreement but we never received one offer using the other Realtor. When the agreement expired I called Barbara and within the first 2 weeks we had one offer and that fell through but two weeks later we received not one but three offers. She and her team are very professional, always update you daily on what is going on, I received weekly reports on the weekly activity from the open houses they held and the previous Realtor never even bothered doing an open house. If you are looking for a person who knows what they are doing, honest, reliable and great team to work with, look no further, talk to Barbara Radke as she is truly your consultant for life. She's the best! "

  -Andy T., Client

"I wouldn't change a single thing. The Radke Agency delivered excellent service to me during my first home buying experience. I loved the ease of signing documents electronically, and both Jennifer and Barbara responded extremely quickly anytime I had a question or concern. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a home"

  -Lauren R., Client

"Barbara Radke and her team are extremely professional and very knowledgeable.  It was a pleasure working with a group of people who are always upbeat and display a positive attitude in every aspect of the sale of the house.  Barbara Radke handled challenges promptly and effectively.  Barbara displays excellent organizational skills and exudes confidence in her sales ability.  I felt that I was in wonderful hands working with Barbara and her team.  I recommend Barbara Radke and her staff in a heartbeat.  They are a power house team."

  -Jeanine A., Client

"THANK YOU will never be enough. We cannot express how grateful we are that we had Radke by our side during the home buying process. As first time home-buyers we had no idea what we were getting into or doing; Barbara and Heather made us feel safe and comfortable with all our offers and our final purchase. Barbara is outstanding, her attention to detail and dedication puts her above the rest. Heather, who we spent most of our time with, is truly exceptional. Her professionalism and dedication for the real estatebusiness helped get us into our house for the right price. Her caring personality and passion for us to be happy with our purchase helped us find the house that we love and that is right for us. It is a tough market right now, and together they got us through it. We are forever grateful, and will be referring Radke to all our friends and family who will be buying or selling houses in the future...and our next purchase of course :) Thank you, thank you!!!"

  -Jessie & Justin H., Client

"Though we encountered some unavoidable and unique challenges with the sale of our long-time family home, Barbara expertly and professionally guided us through the entire process with integrity, honesty, and patience! She and her staff, particularly Jennifer McMichael, were very helpful, caring, and knowledgeable. We would highly recommend Barbara (and, in fact, already have!)"

  -Russ & Barb M., Client

"We relocated from Florida. I came out for 1 week prior to the move for house hunting. I traveled with my 7 month old, Heather picked us up at our hotel, drove us to handfuls of homes for viewings. Not only did we find our home, but we also were able to complete the inspection before the flight back to Florida. Truly grateful that we had a place to come to when it was time to move across the country!"

  -Adam & Shay H., Client

"We were 1st time home buyers and had a lot of anxiety entering into this endeavor. Throughout the process, Heather, Barbara, and Jennifer were easy to contact and very respondent to our needs. We had a complicated financing situation that was handled by the team, causing us essentially no stress!! We strongly recommend them to anyone looking at buying a home. "

  -Shane S., Client

"The Radke Agency, from start to finish, was such a pleasure to work with. They made buying our first home as easy as it could be. They were very knowledgeable with regards to the market, and they were always very quick to respond to any questions that me or my husband had. Would definitely use them again, and refer them to our friends and family!"

  -Angelica N., Client

"Barbara and her team exceeded my expectations, yet again!  Barbara helped me purchase a home a couple years ago and when it came time to sell, I did not think twice about calling Barbara as she had done such a great job finding me the perfect place.  During each step of the sale cycle, Barbara and her team showed the utmost professionalism, expertise and diligence.   I would highly recommend using the Radke Agency whether you are looking to buy, sell or just for guidance as to whether it is the right time to make a move."

  -Lisa P., Client

"The professional and caring service we received from the Radke Agency far exceeded our expectations and we feel there is nothing they could do to improve. Forms were provided and explained and use of internet to complete and sign forms really simplified the process for us since we were actually working long-distance since we were selling our property in CA while living in Wisconsin! We were so grateful for the personal attention of Barbara Radke and our case manager, Jennifer McMichael. They were so helpful in helping us with all the forms that needed to be filed and with understanding what escrow needed to close on the sale. Our closing went very smoothly and we are extremely grateful for all the assistance the Radke Agency gave us. "

  -Bob & /Faith M., Client

"Best Realtor with the Best Team! We recently purchased our house and had a great experience.  I was really impressed with our realtor Barbara Radke, and her team Heather and Jennifer at the Radke Agency.  They were professional and personable. They sat us down and really got to know us and what we were looking for. We never felt pressured and Barbara really got all the information so we could make the right decision.  They were always available, emails or over the phone.  My lender was even impressed with Jennifer who meticulously and promptly had the paperwork completed. We really didn't have to worry about anything.  We felt really lucky to have them on our side and hold our hand through the whole process. We are forever grateful and would use them again in a heartbeat. "

  -Kathleen H, Client

"Best Realtor with a Wonderful Team!  We recently bought our first home with our realtor, Barbara and it was a great experience.  Barbara and Heather met with us and really got to know us.  They understood what we were looking for and worked around my schedule.  They were professional and honest.  Barbara made sure we were in a good situation and had ALL the information (good and bad).   Heather was really cordial and was always available for any questions.  After we found our home and we were in escrow, Jennifer took care of all the paperwork.  Even my lender said Jennifer is the best and is so organized and wonderful to work with.   I cannot express enough how lucky we were to work with Barbara, Heather, and Jennifer.  I highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling their house. They are phenomenal!"

  -Gustavo G., Client

"The Radke team was great! Helped us through the whole process! Barbara always told it like it is and we appreciated her honest opinion. "

  -Jonathon and Rosemary A., Client

"Having built a positive relationship with Barbara during my time with the Westlake Provisors group, I decided to enlist her and her team to provide advice and assistance with prepping the house for sale and marketing it. I would appreciate it if you would share with the group what a fabulous job the Radke team did. We followed the advice of her professional decorator and stager and performed most of the tasks that were recommended. They utilized today’s technology to professionally create a virtual staging of our home online and pounded the pavement knocking on doors to prepare for an initial showing. The results were tremendous! We listed our home on Friday February 27th, had a full price offer by Saturday and six offers by Monday with some over asking price. By the end of the next week we had accepted one of the second round of offers for $30K over the original asking price. I can’t speak highly enough about how professionally Barbara and her team handled the entire process. Phone an"

  -Michael R., Client

"Barbara and her team were extremely helpful throughout the entire home purchase. We looked at houses for several months before we found the one we really wanted to make an offer on. She never hesitated to take us out to see one more house, and always made time accommodate our busy schedules. We also appreciated how Barbara fought for the best price for the home, explained every detail of the purchase and really looked out for our best interest throughout the entire transaction. We are very pleased with our home and the service we received!"

  - Katharine and Michael S., Client

"Barbara Radke is the best agent I have ever worked with. What make her unique is her business savvy, attention to detail and deep knowledge of all things real estate. I would highly recommend Barbara Radke. "

  -Rita M., Client

"We are very satisfied with the entire process and can't think of a thing we would change. We were a bit nervous about our home selling in a timely manner as we listed late in the summer. Barbara started the process right away and our home sold in 1 week with multiple offers! We are very delighted with her professionalism and caring way. Working with Barbara and her staff was pleasant through the whole process. We would certainly use her services again and would highly recommend her to our friends and anyone who is interested in selling their home."

  -Bill & Teri G., Client

"The Radke Agency team was a pleasure to work with during the purchase of our new home. They are professional, effective, and dedicated. We are thankful they were a part of the journey to our dream home! "

  -Kiley & Jessica R., Client

"I don't see how anymore could be done in the future, as you went above and beyond in your excellent service to sell my property in 2 months, from initial visit to end of escrow closing. It was amazing to me. From my first initial visit with Barbara Radke and her Assistant, Jennifer, I knew I had chose the best realtor possible to sell my property. They made me feel at ease and answered all my questions every time with excellent knowledge. I would recommend them to anyone I can, if you want to sell your property fast and with no hassles. They were there for me every step of the way. (this was my first time ever selling a property, and a true blessing in my life). "

  -Susan D., Client

"I wish I had hired Barbara from the start. I got stuck with a lousy Realtor when I first put the home on the market. After we fired that Realtor we hit the jackpot by being put in touch with Barbara Radke. She took 100% control of the situation and got our home sold fast. I'd highly recommend her."

  -Larry R., Client

"Barbara was an excellent agent for us. We were unsure of the exact area we wanted to buy in, or what our price range was. She was patient and worked with us until we figured it out. Once we chose the home we wanted Barbara represented us and protected our interests at every turn. Many issues came up with the sellers ignoring small details of the contract and Barbara caught every one of them. This gave us the opportunity to decide how to handle each issue. Barbara's team was extremely efficient indealing with the required paperwork and consistently let us know what the next step would be and what we need to do. Not only was Barbara on top of things, her entire team was also. We are highly impressed with Barbara and her team. Her slogan "Your Agent for Life" is true for us. We would definitely use her again and recommend her to anyone looking for an agent. "

  -Stephen & Karla B, Client

"I truly can't think of anything that could have made this any better other than helping me pack ;-) It is hard enough to go through a wanted move but when circumstances arise, causing a decision to be made that is less than pleasant, it makes the task of moving that much more difficult to go through. Barbara and her team were able to guide me through the steps needed to sell my home with as little anxiety as possible and in the end, feel good about it. Her suggestions and introduction with companies that I needed to assist me in this process were reliable and friendly and I am not sure I could have found them on my own. The only thing Barbara and her team could have done to make this move any easier on me would have been to physically put items in boxes and seal them. And, I think if I really had needed that she would have helped me there as well. They were amazing!!!"

  -Debbie C, Client

"As a first-time home buyer, I was surprised at the ease of searching, negotiating and purchasing my first home as I have heard horror stories from both friends and family. But I was prepared for anything — Barbara Radke and her entire team seemed to have anticipated problems long before they became problems and we took them in stride, making the entire process run smoothly from beginning to close."

  -Dario F., Client

"Barbara and her staff were amazing with both transactions! She goes above and beyond while ensuring that her staff performs at the highest level of service. We purchased and sold our home through her! She makes the process so easy and stress free, through her extensive knowledge of the area! She is very well connected and respected. Barbara is not only our agent but a lifelong friend that we will continue to keep in touch with. If you don't have an agent or looking for an agent, give her a call!"

  -Mike M, Client

"Barbara was very patient throughout the whole process and she was very knowledgeable as well especially around tips and traps of buying poor condition homes. She and her team helped us out tremendously throughout the whole process - finding a home, negotiating the contract as well as helping with the closing process staying on top of things the whole time.

"Your responsiveness and service were exceptional...everything was beyond compare...Barbara and her team are worth every penny. They listen to you, they respond to you...they get the job done. Extremely professional, they offer a very calm, logical approach to issues as they pop up. Barb, has the process down pat, our home was on the market on November 1st, sold on November 20th, we bought a home on November 25th and we were in the new home on December 27th. Now, that is awesome! We are still smiling...Thank you, Barbara! Gary R. "

  -Gary, Client

"There is nothing to improve...Barbara and her team are the Double Platinums in the business. Thank you for being there to look at any and all the homes we were considering. You were always on time, knew how to get to the property and had all the facts and history on them. When we finally made a decision, you sent in a bid immediately and were responsive throughout the purchasing of the property. We needed to find a place, fund it and move in, in a month and we did, thanks to you and your team! Everything fell into place due to your focus and responsiveness. We are truly grateful! "

  -Felicia R, Client

"Barbara and her staff are great people and very professional! They have the right game plan to sell your home and help you buy the home that you are looking for. Every step is explained exceptionally well. "

  -David V., Client

"Barbara and her team did an outstanding job selling our Mom's house. They were very helpful every step of the way. She gave us excellent referrals for painting, carpet cleaning, termite inspections, and even had someone available to assist us with the estate sale. It was a difficult transition for my Mom to have to move into an assisted living facility, but Barbara helped make it easier for all of us. Thanks again for everything. "

  -Russ M, Client

"Barbara made our first home buying experience a breeze! We were overwhelmed and discouraged by the market but to our surprise in 5 days we put our first offer in and it was accepted! We were so impressed with Barbara's flexibility, and willingness to meet us during late hours due to our work schedules. Barbara and her agency were very responsive to calls, emails, and texts which made communication easy. We appreciated her knowledge of the home's upgrades, condition, and value; she always provided us with comparable real estate in the area. On top of her outstanding knowledge of the market, real estate experience, and expertise, Barbara's caring, joyful personality made searching for a home a joy. She truly shares in the excitement with you. Thank you Barbara and The Radke Agency for finding us our very first home! "

  -Nate & Haley S., Client

"The Radke Agency's attention to detail was priceless in finding our perfect home. We couldn't have asked for a better experience! "

  -Matt & Katie W, Client

"My house was a short sale. Barabra and her team especially Jennifer did an awesome job in completing the transaction. She and her team were truly professional, their communication is perfect and negotiation with my Banks was outstanding. They make sure their client were well informed and they send mails on a regular basis and explained the issues that may come up as they refer that as "turbulence", not only that she thinks outside the box and she gives suggestion to the buyer's realtor if the bottleneck is on their side. This really helped prepare for when things did come up. You will not find a more professional team of people who truly care about those they represent. "

  -Rajan N., Client

"I think Barbara Radke and team has done an outstanding job for us by selling our house in approx 22 days. We all were surprised when Barbara and team came to our house and got some things fixed for beautification. We may have missed these but their eyes caught everything and made our house more presentable for selling. The home virtual tour posted on line by Barbara was great and that was the reason we started getting offers immediately and sold our house in 22 days. A job well done - Thanks a lot. "

  -Muhammad & Rosy, Client

"When perfection is delivered, there is no room for improvement. Barbara's and Stuart's team met and surpassed my exceedingly high expectations for this complex short sell transaction. Team Radke was highly recommended to me and I now have the privilege to highly recommend their superior service to anyone considering a short sale of their home. The sale of a home, especially a short sale, is a daunting proposition, one in which you do not trust just anyone. By living up to her grand reputation, I can say Barbara deserves your ultimate trust. "

  -Greg G., Client

"Barbara and her team far exceeded my expectations based on previous (and subsequent) experiences in either buying or selling real estate. The level of professionalism, depth of knowledge of the market, usage of technology to stay on top of the process and consulting experience with a personal touch offered by Barbara and team have left a strong positive impression about an industry that I did not think could offer any of the above previously. Barbara's availability and willingness to flex her time to suit our needs left me profusely thankful many times during the process of selling our home. I happily refer Barbara Radke and her team to anyone for their real estate needs. While my immediate future may not hold an opportunity for Barbara Radke Real Estate Team, based on my recent experience, I will only work with Barbara and team if I ever choose to transact in real estate in the areas they cover. "

  -Andy Iyer, Client

"Team Radke is the best. We never had a problem arranging viewings, and Barbara and her team were always prompt in returning calls and emails (even at 5 am). We also felt like the team really cared about helping us locate the perfect home for our particular needs and likes. I would without reservation recommend Team Radke to my friends and family if they are ever in need of a real estate team. "

  -Rachel Mory, Client

"Over the last four decades, I have bought and sold seven houses. My experience with Barbara and The Radke Agency in the purchase of my eighth home (and selling of my seventh) was terrific! They are exceptionally knowledgeable, professional, and available. They are "on top" of things for the entire process and I would highly recommend them to all buyers and sellers!"

  -Nancy McGinnis, Client

"Your service exceeded our expectations! Working with Barbara was a very pleasant, professional, positive experience. We can truly say that purchasing our first home with her service exceeded all our expectations and beyond! What matters even more is that in today’s difficult market, where there are multiple offers on a property, and in spite of all challenges and odds, she got the job done: she was able to get us into our first home (with a VA loan)! Her superior skills, positive and optimistic attitude made all the difference in achieving our goal. She was very persistent and would not take no for an answer. She would find a way, when we thought there is no way. She was also patient and courteous, worked around our busy schedules and with our young children, always taking our interest into consideration. We are very thankful for finding Barbara Radke and her team; she was a 'God sent' to our family. We are always grateful and we are very happy for our new home. We will not hes"

  -Nate & Haley Simon, Client

"Barbara and her team are amazing. From our initial meeting through the close of escrow, they were on top of every detail, making sure everything was done correctly and quickly. Barbara and her team were always available to answer questions and their follow up was fantastic. I was initially hesitant to use a realtor who was based 1.5 hours from our house's location...but that was before I met Barbara. Her thoroughness in investigating the area and local real estate market before meeting us was so impressive. Barbara's prep work led to our house selling in 1 day and escrow closing in 1 month. Handling the paperwork via the internet could not have been easier. I would HIGHLY recommend Barbara to anyone considering buying or selling a home. Our experience with Barbara and her team could not have been better!"
