Print Agent Bio

I've lived in Portland since childhood, and grew up in the Parkrose neighborhood of NE Portland. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Oregon, and while my husband and I raised our two children, I received a Masters in Business Administration from Portland State University with a focus in Finance and Human Resources. It was there that I mastered my skills in personal business and customer relations.

With over 16 years of experience in Real Estate, my knowledge of the local area and excellent interpersonal skills have led to my success as an agent, trusted and highly recommended by my clients. I bring hard work and dedication to every aspect of the home selling process..

Since becoming an agent, I have achieved my GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute), earned membership into the prestigious Master's Circle (Million Dollar Club) every year, and am now an enthusiastic member of the Hasson Green Team.

Barbara McFarlane helped us find the perfect home, and was a true professional throughout the whole process. I sent her a list of our criteria before we went house-hunting, but I was later surprised to hear her repeat back an even longer version of our "wish list" based on everything I'd said when we went around looking at homes. In fact, she cracked me up with all the crazy detail she remembered about my weird preferences! Once we did find a place, she helped us put together the best possible offer in a competitive market. She worked very well with the seller's realtor to communicate everything clearly and get our offer accepted. During the escrow process, I realized there was a lot I didn't know about buying a condo vs. a house. She picked up on any number of details that needed to be clarified that I might never have thought of. She was also extremely helpful with the inspection and knew exactly how to deal with the various items on the report. She kept track of all the deadlines and milestones, and worked with our lender to make sure everything stayed on track and we closed on time. She even took care of very minor details that I would have happily handled myself, such as returning to the seller a few small possessions they'd left behind. If I ever need a realtor in Portland again, I will definitely call Barbara. Highly recommended.

Working with you has been a pleasure. You listen; think; anticipate and follow-through. I have had a dozen or so realtors that have assisted me through the years. You by far have been the best so far – a very nice combination of professionalism; knowledge and a generally easy-going demeanor. I would love to work with you again in the future and would recommend your services to anyone who is looking to buy or sell in your market.

"Barbara has been a personal friend for years, and I could not be happier to refer my other friends & co-workers to her on a regular basis. They always rave about her level of service & knowledge. She's the best!"

"Barbara found us the ideal house in Lake Oswego, and at a great price! We trusted her so much that we had her make an offer sight unseen, and it worked out fantastic! We have made a lot of money working with her and we will always use her for our Oregon real estate needs. She is always honest when we see a house that is not right for us, and we know we can believe what she says."
