If it weren't for Desiree, our successful farm sale might never have happened. She worked tirelessly with the buyer, who was out of the area, to iron out all the difficult details and even helped her get over some of her lender hurdles. We would heartily recommend her as THE horse property expert to anyone coming to Ocala to buy or to anyone in Ocala looking to get top dollar for their listing.
I have to apologize to Desiree for not writing this shortly after we closed last summer. However better late than never.
My wife, family and I are extremely happy with the deal Desiree helped negotiate. She was extremely professional, as well as a real estate professional.
We highly recommend Desiree for any of your real estate purchase needs. I am quite confident a sale or a rental will have the same outstanding results as ours did.
We had been under contract 3 times with other agencies prior to closing with Desiree. I will say... buyer be ware and question your agent to insure you will get what you contract for.
Thank you Desiree, our farm is doing great. THANK YOU!
Desiree Barbazon sold my house in 2 weeks time! She gave me pointers on how to present my house and took great pictures to show it off. She always kept me up to date on how things were progressing and returned my calls promptly. I am very glad that she was my agent and I recommend her to anyone I know.
I have run across many realtors in my life and former job, some good and some not so good.
Desiree has impressed me as the absolute best realtor I have ever worked with, she handled all the complexity of our purchase with speed and expertise of a real professional in her trade.
I will not hesitate recommending Desiree to anyone in need of a truly professional expert in her business.
I would highly recommend Desiree for any real estate transaction. She is effective and caring. Listed our home and sold it quickly for almost full asking price. She always kept us informed through the entire process. Absolutely the best we've ever had the pleasure of working with.
I have had 6 buying and selling experiences of Real Estate with Desiree Barbazon to this point in my life. A couple of years ago, on the advice of another Realtor, I went with someone else that they thought would be my best Realtor on selling of this particular property. What a mistake I made, I got bad service for one year, called Desiree to apologize for the mistake I made by not going with her, fences mended, and my property was sold within the month. Desiree has become a friend, loyal to her clients, responsive to your needs, and skilled at her profession. I would highly recommend her services to anyone that wants to buy or sell property, she knows how to get the job done.
Although I had the closing from Hell (seller’s issue), Desiree was the best! She kept me informed of what was going on and helped to keep me calm. I would recommend Desiree to anyone, as she is the best realtor in Ocala!
Desiree is the best! She made the whole process from listing to closing go very smoothly particularly through a couple of rough patches. She is very good at staying in communication and is very professional. We highly recommend her.
We highly recommend Desiree, buying a house is stressful, a ton of unknowns, living in another city even more so. Desiree truly, was our champion! She genuinely cares, takes the time to understand our specific needs and wants, then guide us to the best home for us! She makes a complex process easy, working diligently with the lender, our attorney, the appraiser, the seller and her agent. In a very short time we found our dream farm and are living our dream! We started with a realtor but ended with a friend!
Desiree was very professional, knowledgable, and patient with us while selling our farm. She was great about scheduling showings and getting back to us the same day. she helped us sell our farm and purchase our new house.
It is my pleasure to provide this review of the interactions that my wife and i have had with Desiree Barbazon throughout the process of buying our home in Ocala. My wife and I had a short window of several months to purchase a home, as we were moving for a job. Straightforwardly, Desiree was superb. She was excellent in her knowledge of the region, of the process, and in her attention to detail. She articulated all elements of our dealings with precision, compassion and understanding. She is an excellent listener, patient and always available to talk, which was very much appreciated when negotiations with sellers were prolonged or strained. She was our advocate from the start and never wavered, and I felt that we made the best deal possible through her constant advocacy and her patient guidance. During the process, I honestly felt that my wife and I had gained our first friend in Ocala. I would recommend Desiree Barbazon without reservation or qualification.
Desiree offered practical advise how to present the house, repairs to make and tips to show the in the best light.
She had a very beautiful packet for prospective buyers, with information and DVD.
On a personal note, Desiree was so understanding with the general and common stress that comes with selling a home. She was optimistic and I am happy we had her in our corner.
Desiree was extremely knowledgeable about what we wanted. She handled everything smoothly and made sure everything was correctly done. She was very pleasant to deal with and make you feel that you were dealing with a friend. I highly recommend her to anyone.
Knows the market. Is influential in the area. She is helpful and compassionate in a stressful situation. Can't say enough about her. She gets the job done.
After doing lots of online research looking at houses across multiple cities and states, we finally saw two homes that we were interested in looking at in Ocala. Desiree showed us both of them and we liked them both so much that we figured out a way to make it work so that we could buy both and rent one out.
With one house the seller accepted the price that Desiree recommended as our initial offer price without any negotiation. The seller even did a small unplanned plumbing fix before we closed when they had claimed they weren't going to make any fixes. She clearly knew the right price for this house. With the second house Desiree was helpful in negotiating an initial offer price when quite a bit of work was needed on the house, and even re-negotiating lower after more things came to light during the inspection.
Responsiveness and Process expertise:
When some questions came up during one of the inspections, Desiree was on her phone straight away getting the answers from the seller right there on the spot. She was very prompt with emails, texts, and phone calls, and we used all three methods of communication with her during the process. When we had a mathematical question about the closing statement on one of the houses, Desiree was able to answer it quickly.
We aren't from the area and Desiree has been able to give lots of local advice. We used an inspector that Desiree recommended and she also gave us tips on insurance agents and contractors. Desiree really feels at home in Ocala and she enjoys sharing its merits with you. She told us about a new organic grocery store that recently opened up, some places to kayak, places on the coast, etc. -- all things that we can't wait to do.
As other reviewers have said, we found Desiree to be friendly and very down to earth. She was always easy to reach and easy to talk to. I would definitely recommend Desiree as a realtor.
Desiree was a real trooper.We viewed over 20 homes and she did not waiver when other salespersons may have given up.She was very knowledgeable about the area and we even took her into other counties in our quest.Thank you for helping us find our home Desiree.
I found Desiree to be very knowledgeable in real estate. She always answered my questions at any time of the day ( and I had put in a lot of phone calls to her ). Desiree is an highly experienced professional and very down to earth and personable. She had 2 buyers ready and waiting to buy my home within 1 month of listing it. I am very grateful to her for the quick sale of my home. If I ever buy and sell another home in her listing area, Desiree would be my realtor of choice. Thank-you again Desiree
My husband and I were as impressed with this sale of property as we had been when Desiree helped us purchase our first Florida home five years ago. should the need arise in the future we will not hesitate to call upon Desiree.
Very sweet & thorough lady. We loved her sweet disposition who represented us in the selling of our home. We contacted Desiree Barbazon Realty. She really took the extra care and concern with us as seller. We would recommend Desiree Barbazon to anyone looking for a good real estate person.
She is rather rude. I have never purchased any home let alone a foreclosed home. I asked her a question, I would have been perfectly fine if she had just said no, but she didn't. She was quick to tell me that I shouldn't look into because I can't have it. I didn't get a chance to find out about any of her other skills thanks to her lovely attitude. if you can't treat people respectfully, you shouldn't be in sales.
We were very pleased with Desiree's professionalism and earnest desire in the sale of our home. It was a smooth transaction and we couldn't ask for a better realtor.
Desiree is awesome! We just can't say enough good things about her. She's thorough and really takes care of every detail for her clients. We sold this home after my mother-in-law passed and she made this difficult task as easy on us as possible. We highly recommend her!
This current property sold by Desiree was the 5th property of mine sold by her in the 20 years that I have lived in Florida. Three years ago she sold a property of mine in just 4 days and this one was sold within one month on the market. This last sale was not easy going, not on our side but the buyers and Desiree stuck by me and advised me well to wait it out and after a few addendum's on my sold property and on the new property she found for me, it all came to pass and we finally made it to the table, She surely put a lot of extra time and effort into the buy and sell but it all came to the good at the end. I could not have found a better Real Estate professional than Desiree Barbazon. I again would like to thank her for all her help and appreciate everything she put into making this deal come true,
We purchased our home from Desiree and now 12 years later she sold that home for us and spent endless hours helping us find the perfect place for us to purchase. We can honestly say she will do everything possible to sell your home for you and/or help you find your perfect place. Desiree is that sales person you can trust.
We ran into problems no fault of our own or our realtor, Desiree did everything in her power and more to correct the situation. We were very pleased with her. As a result we got the house of our dreams. If we ever need a realtor again, Desiree would be the first person we called.
We had the pleasure of dealing with Ms.Barbazon on our recent purchase of our home in Ocala. We are from outside the area, St.Augustine, and were not familiar with the Ocala area. Desiree was knowledgeable of the area, honest in her discussions and very helpful in arranging times around our schedule. She was not pushy and overbearing as some realtors, but calm and friendly, but made herself available to answer our questions when they arose. Buying a retirement home is stressful and a huge decision.Ms. Barbazon help made the experience easy and took much of the stress off of us. It was a very pleasant experience and we are grateful that we found her to work with us on this big decision. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home in the Ocala area.
Handled a home purchase with no problems and in fact saved me money.She was very professional and handled the the transaction accurately. I will deal with her in all future real estate transactions.
Mrs Barbazon was most exceptional at her job!! She is extremely knowledgable in her field. I would HIGHLY recommend Desiree...Very nice lady. She spent hours with us showing us homes in the Ocala and surrounding areas. We were there in florida for only 3 days and she spent each day with us.
Desiree was very professional and pleasant. She was very efficient handling the sale of my home. She was outstanding on preparing a portfolio and video of my home to perspective buyers. She was very helpful with issues with expediting the sale. She was extremely timely in her communications with me. I would highly recommend her agency to friends and family.
Desiree Barbazon is an expert with the highest skill set. She has been our realtor for over thirteen years. Buying and selling properties which suited our needs and expectations. She is an analytic /comprehensive realtor with the highest standards and integrity. Her knowledge of Ocala area land/house,farms and ranches is inclusive and extensive. Her exhaustive knowledge of Marion County and our needs gave us the security,knowledge,and ability to purchase the properties of our dreams. she not only listed our properties but they sold quickly. Most recently in July 2015. An attribute once again to her exhaustive knowledge of Ocala land. Highest recommendations from a very grateful family.
Exemplifies honesty and integrity. The staff is outstanding.
Desiree was a pleasure to work with while selling our house. She helped us get our house sold quickly at a fair price. She was able to get the house viewed regularly and which brought us multiple offers.
Desiree was extremely patient with us as we searched for the perfect property. She's very familiar with the area and made suggestions that we may have never considered. Thanks to her help, we found our dream farm.
When buying my home, I used Desiree Barbazon, she was brilliant and extremely efficient. I wish I had used her from the start of my home search, I could not recommend a better person to help you find your new home.
Desiree did a great job in finding me the the right property at the right price. She is very knowledgeable on the Ocala horse properties market, and did great follow up throughout the transaction, which actually closed a few days earlier than planned. I highly recommend Desiree for all of your Ocala area real estate needs.
When my father had a sudden physical injury that put him in a wheelchair and required us to move him to assisted living in Georgia, I had to get his house ready and up on the market quickly. I did research and chose Desiree Barbazon due to some really good statistics on sales and good reviews. I am so happy I did!
Having to travel back and forth between Atlanta and Ocala to get the house ready was stress enough...Desiree assisted in getting some local handymen/repair people to fix a few things, dropped off the Cable/phone/internet devices as I canceled service, etc. We put it up at a higher price knowing it was a stretch, but knowing we had some work to do to get it ready anyway....She then worked with me on the price reduction to set it at the right price to sell which it did very quickly. Desiree took care of everything I couldn't, set it up for a quick closing and arranged for doing closing via fedex. On top of that, the day before closing, a tornado came through Oak Run and although my Dad's house wasn't damaged, there was some debris and branches on the property, on the roof and in the gutter. She immediately contacted me and got someone to clean it all up for $50 so the buyers would be happy when closing. Highly recommend Desiree!
Desiree's professional expertise was sine qua non to the successful transaction of our property. I was immediately impressed with her preparation and research of our property prior to our first formal meeting. She takes into account the ebbs and flows of seasonal influences that can affect the sale of your property. She had the property listed and under contract within 3 days of listing. The majority of my interaction with her was over email and phone as I live 3,000 miles away, but I knew there would be no problem given her past proven success. It is with the highest regard that I recommend Desiree for any of your real estate needs.
My husband and I struggled with having our home on the market for over six months with little to no interest. We made the switch and listed the home with Desiree to see if she could get something done. Right off the bat, she made some suggestions on a few minor things we could do to make our home more universally appealing, and recommended an excellent and cost effective handy man to get it done. One week later, she listed the home and sold it the next day! She followed up right to the closing table, and we were kept in the loop the entire time. Our only mistake was not listing with her from the beginning. We highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell in the Ocala area. I literally can't say enough about how pleased we were by her professionalism and kindness. Thanks, Desiree - you're the best!!
From the first phone conversation with Desiree, I was impressed with her patience and knowledge of the local real estate market. She was always pleasant to work with during the many months of viewing homes. She was also savvy with real estate technology and would supply me with packets with excellent attached photos for each home. Even though, there was no certainty that we would remain in Ocala, Desiree still gave me her professional attention and was always prompt with her return calls and emails. I really loved that she has an equestrian background which enabled her to give us advice regarding homes with acreage. She always showed a sincere interest in our personal situation and matching us with property that we would be happy with for years. Also, during the closing process she kept abreast of the behind the scenes events and notified me promptly. I sincerely feel Desiree Barbazon is your best choice for buying or selling real estate in the Ocala area.
I have been looking for a smaller, +55 second home in Ocala.
Desiree has been kind, understanding, knowledgeable, friendly, relentless, understanding, fun and, all in all, a pleasure to work with, even thought I am not looking for the largest home.
Desiree made selling our home a pleasure. She gave input on making little detail changes to the home (THE BEST ADVICE EVER!!!!!!!). She was right by our side all the way, and it only took weeks to sell, Thank You Desiree for making it fun and easy for us. You surly know your job. T@T Havis 10/2014
Desiree provided us with the exact houses we were looking for with all the amenities we desired and in a price range we wanted to maintain. She helped with the back and forth paperwork and made local contacts when necessary.
my wife and I love working with Desiree, keeping us Safe in the areas that we talked about , making sure the property was priced right and pointing out property flaws that may be some what hidden. great personality, and sense of humor, shows what is in the area for services, shopping and eateries. don't think about any one else.!
In addition to being a pleasures work with, Desiree worked hard to find properties that met our specifications. She was always responsive and returned phone calls promptly. She was very knowledgeable about the area and took time to show us around the community. I would recommend her highly.
Desiree is a great realtor and a terrific person. She helped me sell a home in just a few months after a different realtor had it listed for a year. The advertising Desiree does is very good and it reaches alot of people. She is knowledgeable, professional, hard working, and a pleasure to work with. Desiree also helped me purchase a home. Again, she was the greatest!! If I buy or sell anything in the future it will definately be with Desiree!
Desiree was very helpful and dedicated in finding our new home. We must have looked at forty or more homes and made at least four differant offers on different ones, over a years time. My fiance' and I finally found the one that worked for us both and went back and forth with the seller for weeks. We closed and are very happy. Thanks Dez.
I CALLED DESIREE IN REGARDS TO LISTING MY LAND. I DECIDED TO WAIT AWHILE BEFORE LISTING WITH HER. PROBABLY IN THE FALL OR NEXT YEAR. BUT SHE HELPED ME WITH HAVING MY LAND TIMBERED OFF. SHE HOOKED ME UP WITH THE PROPER PEOPLE, AND I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THE OUTCOME. THANK YOU DESIREE FOR YOUR HELP.
Desiree did a great job finding us our dream house, she really listened to what was important to us and had a good number of houses lined up for us to see. Desiree has an expert knowledge of the Ocala area and did a great job of screening houses that would be a good fit for us.
She was always responsive to phone calls and she will let you know the insider information that is important when moving in a new area. We had a really good experience and I would highly recommend Desiree.
Desiree is most professional and very knowledgeable about the area of Florida that she covers. She is up-to-date on values, tax information, trends in the area, etc. I found that she answered all of our questions and is always available to assist in anyway that she can.
I can not say enough good things about Desiree. One evening I found her through her excellent rating on Zillow.com she jumped at the chance to take my wife and I to look at a home that evening. From that point on she worked with us to find our new home. Anytime I need her she was there, anytime I had a question she had a good answer or she took the time to find out the requested info. I am from a family that were Brokers and agents in TN, so I can say she is one of a kind and an excellent agent to work with. If someone were to ask me, I would with out a doubt recommend Desiree!!!
Desiree made selling our property in Reddick seamless. Once we signed with her, she took over and did almost all the work. She is pleasant and very knowledgeable. She showed the property often until it sold. When it sold, she made the sale and closing completely painless! Oh! She also sold my mother's house--the week it went on the market!
I would highly recommend Desiree to anyone buying or selling in the Ocala area. She is professional, knowledgeable and experienced - as well as respectful, sincere and straightforward. An absolute pleasure to work with.
Desiree went over and above helping me with getting things in place after my offer was accepted. I was not able to be in Ocala and she met contractors at the house and worked with them on my behalf to prepare estimates. She was able to negotiate with the seller to allow me early acces to the house for my furniture. Any time I hgad a problem, she stepped up and helped me solve it. I would not hesitate to use her or recommend her in the future.
We were upside down on a 10 acre lot and stopped making payments 2 years ago. We were fearful as to how it would effect our future. We did not want a huge judgment hanging over our head. Desiree educated us as what options we had and listed the property at a reasonable price. Knowing from the news that the market was pretty quiet, we settled in for a long wait. But within a few weeks Desiree was on the phone with an offer. Getting a short sale past the mortgage holder was no easy task and just when the deal seemed ready to crash, Desiree came through with an option no one had considered. Desiree's knowledge and experience of the area, people, process, bankers/mortgage co. proved to be invaluable.
And the best part is, we walked away from the deal with no debt and no judgment against us!!
Desiree has been friendly yet totally professional. We had what seemed like a million questions, and she answered all of them. She took the time to explain every step that we were about to go through, and presented our home beautifully. Thanks to Desiree and her guidance our house sold after only 3 showings. We would highly recommend Desiree Barbazon to anyone wishing to sell their home as she will be there for you from the start to finish.
I contacted Desiree Barbazon regarding 4.65 acres she had advertised as the listing agent on Horseclicks.com. I felt that she was very honest and forthright. I had always thought that I needed a buyers agent but found Desiree was very informative to me as the buyer. I needed this, as I was not knowledgeable at buying of property. She also was helpful in recommending banks and builders that could help with financing and building my future home. I'm thankful for the consideration Desiree has shown me.
We have dealt with Desiree Barbazon on two homes that we have sold in Ocala in the past four or five years. We highly recommend Desiree as a buyer's agent, listing agent and for buying foreclosures. She's honest is very easy to talk and deal with!
My wife and I are from Western New York and decided we would like a Winter home in Ocala, Fl. We first contacted one of the biggest realtors in Ocala, but they never called us back. We then contacted Desiree Barbazon Realty who helped us purchase our beautiful home. We could'nt be happier with Desiree's service and recommend her to anyone !! Bigger is not better when it comes to Realtors in Ocala.
I can't say enough about Desiree! Within two weeks she sold my mother in law's house and the closing was seamless. What a great relief. Desiree has worked to stay in touch with us from start to finish and even helped my Mother in law out at closing. She has been a gift to our family.
On 12/14/2012 we successfully closed on the sale of our house. Overall, listing and selling a house can be very stressful, especially if you are trying to buy one at the same time. Desiree made listing and selling our house a breeze. From the first moment we met with her, we knew her cool and calm ways of dealing with people would be an asset to our home selling process. From finding a buyer, dealing with inspection findings, and other setbacks, Desiree was completely professional and handled things expertly.
When we had questions, Desiree had answers and input, and when we had feedback, Desiree listened and showed that she cared about our needs. Within two months of listing our house in a very tough and slow real estate market Desiree had a contract with an offer that was very acceptable to us. We closed on time and any rough situations were smoothed over by Desiree.
I consider Desiree the consummate professional. She was reliable, courteous, and responsive. It was a joy to work with her and she was the best agent we have worked with to date. I highly recommend Desiree's services to buyers and sellers of real estate.
Desiree was very professional, had a good knowledge of the local market, priced my home right, to be sold, and was sold in 4 days. This is the 4th property Desiree sold for me, and I left all the worry to her and she got the job done. A true asset to the Real Estate Market.
Dear Desiree Barbazon
How can I possibly thank you enough for your constant support during the purchase of our home in Citra fl. You made the settlement very easy for use since we were out of state.
I want to express my sincere gratitude for your consultation and help and to wish you and your family a happy holiday season.
Desiree was a joy to work with. Being out of state during the listing of our property was made stress-less because of Desiree's attention. If you want to sell your home or farm in this market the best advise I could give you is to call Desiree.
Desiree did a fantastic job of finding the perfect home for me. I will be retiring in the spring of 2013 and wanted to find a home in a 55+ community that I could begin to update now on my schedule & budget. I currently live in South FL, but Desiree kept me informed on homes that she felt would meet my needs when I was ready to retire & relocate to the Ocala area. Her experience, professional expertise and integrity made this purchase an easy process from start to finish! I would not hesitate to recommend Desiree and her company to anyone who is considering buying or selling a property in the area.
Desiree was easy to work with, helpful and very responsive to any inquiries. She's a very pleasant individual and never made me feel that I was anything but a priority for her. I would definitely work with Desiree again!
Desiree is the consummate real estate professional..... she handles everything in a timely fashion and with great people skills. It was a pleasure working with her on my recent purchase of a horse farm in Ocala, and I would not hesitate to recommend her to any of my friends!
We listed our home thinking that in this bad economy that it may take at
least one year to sell. We called Desiree to discuss the possibilities and she
convinced us to give it a go. To our great surprise she had Two offers for us
in the first month one of which we accepted. We put this down to Des having
great knowledge of both the area and the market.My wife and I would both
highly recomend Desiree to all our family and friends.
Desiree did an awesome job with helping us buy a new house. We did not have any knowledge on the process and she made it really smooth I don't think we could have gotten a better agent!! She did an awesome job with walking us through the who process from beginning to end.
I would highly recommend her to anyone and would definitely use her again if I ever need to buy or sell real estate. Not only is she honest but also works hard to make sure there aren't any snags in the process.
Whether you're a first time home buyer or wanting more property, I HIGHLY recommend Desiree and am confident you will not be disappointed!!!
Desiree did a fantastic job for us. She was very attentive to our desires and she got the job done. We will certainly use her again.
We recently purchased a home through Desiree Barbazon Realty as out of state purchasers. Desiree was extremely professional, helpful, knowledgeable and considerate in assisting us with our purchase. Desiree successfully assisted us with house inspection professionals, comparitive house pricing, and local information concerning flood zones, insurance and local ordinances. I would highly recommend her service.
Miss Dessiree is one of the hardest working persons i have been around and she is always looking for ways to help the client and improve the chances of a sale ,,but not at the risk of the client ,,also she is down to earth so for me it was easy to show my need to sale and she was always willing to hear and help
I will recommend Desiree to anyone who wants to sell or buy a property in the area of Marion or Levy county
We were at wit's end - Desiree found us a place after a year of looking and being dissapointed by other agents and places, and she came up with the perfect place for us. We were selling our farm in TN, and had to get out by a certain date. We had gotten permission to move in, prior to the closing date,only to find that at the last second, the bank refused to give us a mortgage on the FL farm. Desiree went to bat for us and got the seller to agree to a lease/purchase option, so we wouldn't be homeless. She was an angel who saved us from an uncertain and frightening future. I highly recommend her to anyone buying property in the Ocala area.
Desiree was absolutely fantastic. My fiance and I were in Ocala, FL for 10 days to find our home. We had our fingers crossed the whole time. Every day Desiree had new listings for us to look at. While we found a couple properties we were pleased with nothing really stood out as what we would be happy with to raise a family in. On the last day we were in Ocala Desiree texted us a couple addresses and both were just perfect. We had to figure which one we liked better and we chose this beautiful home to submit an offer on. We were very pleased with her dedication. I couldn't grasp how she was able to juggle us with her other clients especially since we called the day after we arrived in Ocala and wanted to be in escrow in 10 days with the home of our dreams to settle and raise a family. It's a lot to ask and Desiree handled it perfectly. While in escrow my fiance and I were not available and had a power of attorney to handle the paperwork. While going thru this process Desiree was able to work thru much confusion and three different opinions of the offer. She was able to work thru the personal issues between us all and get us the home of our dreams. We recommend Desiree Barbazon for everyone looking for a home in her service areas.
Desiree could not have made this any easier for us! We were in Colorado looking to buy in Florida, and she really did all the foot work for us.We found a house, made an offer, looked at it, and will be moving to Florida in a few weeks.She made sure all repairs were completed and handled everything prior to closing. She is still keeping an eye on our new "home" until we get there. She truly is an awesome person.
A long distance relationship under normal circumstances would have been very stressful, with the initial questions that Desiree asked and the e-mails that were sent back and forth it took only a few properties for her to determine what we were looking for. When we finally arrived in Florida about a month after our first contact, the properties avaialable given our criteria were set up and ready for our inspection. Desiree already knew which property we were going to choose, even before we did, it is perfect for us and the timing price wise was a bargain for us, thanks to Desiree's negotiations and knowledge of the area.
It has been and still is a tough economy, but Desiree stuck with it and got the job done! Nancy
Desiree was a pleasure to work with. She understood our needs as buyers and provided realistic options for us to choose from. She was very positive and encouraging, she took initiative without being pushy. We're very grateful to have met and worked with her.
After using 2 other realtors and spending over 12 months looking for a property, for me, my gorgeous wife and our beautiful baby boy, we were giving up hope! But then Desiree was recommended to us, and what a recommendation it was! Desiree is nothing but professional, efficient, courtious and an absolute pleasure to deal with. She helped us find our first home and she will be the one to find our 2nd! I hope!...
Desiree was very knowledgeable, organized, and personable when she helped me buy my farm. She is a very capable and extremely well-qualified agent who will do an excellent job for you. If you are looking to buy or sell in Ocala, Desiree is the one to choose!
Desiree has been a marvelous agent for us. She has been extremely helpful in both the purchase and the sale of property. She is sensitive to what we needed from a home and horse property and she located one to fit our needs. It has been a pleasure to work with Deisiree.
A five star realtor. Always professional and willing to go beyond the call of duty to make the deals come together. I have used her several times and found her very knowledgeable and outgoing.
You couldn't ask for a better agent/broker to be in your corner, for either buying or selling. Desiree is extremely helpful and never gives up on her clients needs. She is very honest, and will always go the extra mile. I have had many offers from several other agents/brokers during the course of the past three years offering their services in the selling of my property. Of course I would and will in the future only choose Desiree Barbazon Reality for ALL of my real estate needs. I have sold 600+ acres with Desiree, I couldn't ask for a better agent/broker, friend. When you hire Desiree Barbazon Realty, you hire an experienced, friendly and hardworking realtor. I consider Desiree Barbazon Realty family. Desiree Barbazon Realty gets a BIG 10 from me.
Desiree was an awesome agent when trying to relocate to Ocala. She was always sending me new listings and spent many hours looking at properties with me. When we decided to by land and build she recomended a great builder and other professionals. She's a 10.
Desiree sold my Grandmothers house and helped my Mother find her new home. My Mother is disabled and has a limited income. Desiree was very patient and understanding (it was not a quick process). We spent months looking for a home to fit my Mom's needs, and finally we were able to find the perfect home, thanks to Desiree.
Desiree Barbazon has all the qualifications to handle your housing needs. She has helped me buy and sell two homes since I have been in Florida. I would recommend her to everyone. She is a household word in Ocala. She knows the area and the people giving her a definite advantage to obtaining the best information about the houses that are for sale in the area. Most importantly, she is very honest and will never sell you a home that is not suited to you. She's the best!
Desiree has provided more than one service to my husband and myself, and we have both been thoroughly impressed by her knowledge of current market trends, as well as how she presents her properties. I have recommended her to several close friends, all of which, have been likewise, impressed!
Unlike some other area realtors, Desiree gives her buyers ALL listings in their perameters, not just her own. This gives buyers more information not less!
Professional and trustworthy are two adjectives I use sparingly when describing some realtors I have known; but that is exactly how I would describe Desiree.

Desiree has represented me on the purchase and sale of 4 properties over the years. She is the best realtor I have ever worked with. Weather buying or selling Barbazon Realty can get the job done. You can trust her to be one step ahead while representing you. I highly recommend Desiree Barbazon
Desiree introduced us to the perfect property to meet our needs. She enabled us to purchase a 27 acre turn-key horse farm in a premiere location of Marion County. The surrounding community is 100% equestrian oriented with world-class horses and riders thriving in this portion of the county. The selling price was a steal and the property value has already tripled in the time we've been here.....however, price is insignificant since we have no plans to sell in this lifetime.
