Success Stories
  • Dear Shalimar, “You not only found our clients the perfect house, you also proved that a successful partnership can be created between any variety of individuals...and real estate companies...even if they work on opposite sides of the 'Hill". As long as diligence, dedication and communication are practiced by both parties, the goals can be achieved. You were great. I could rely on you. You adjusted to my creative forms and you wrote the winning purchase contract on Hemmingway. Your professional and knowledgeable guidance did the trick! Best wishes in all phases of your future life. Thank you...and thank you...”

    Carol Gunneson Realtor®, Coldwell Banker
  • “Thanks so much for all your hard work! We absolutely love the house and we're looking forward to many happy years there. Hope you enjoy your gift- you've earned at least 3 months worth of these, but at least we can provide you with one good starting day of relaxation. Thanks again. Be well.”

    Chad Baker and Rachel Cruz, Software design Engineer
  • “We would like to bring to your attention the excellent care we received while working with Shalimar Verini-Barker during the selling of our home at Chase St. in North Hills. She was utterly motivated from the start. We were pleased with the extra time she spent with us. She always had patience with our questions and concerns. We also feel we gained a friend after we were through with the whole transaction. Please let it be known the experience Shalimar has in her work. It's clear she loves what she's doing and cares for the people she is working for. We will recommend her to no end.”

  • “I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the outstanding job you did as my real estate agent on the purchase of my new home! You were incredible! Your attention to details, knowledge and energy was amazing! You were aggressive without being too pushy, never seemed upset if I asked you the same question a million times (and I know I did that a lot!). You explained anything I asked you about clearly and in laymen's terms. I will certainly be recommending you to any of my family, friends and coworkers who are in the market to buy a house!”

    Tad Nyland, Picture Head Studios
  • "As a first time home buyers everything seems confusing. Well it did for us, anyway. Our real estate agent pressured us to put and enlarged offer on a place we only "kind of" liked (which already had multiple offers on it). We knew then, she wasn't right for us. So we let her go. Now, finding ourselves with more questions than answers and no real estate agent to turn to, things got pretty scary. Then, we were referred to Shalimar. She sat us down and got to know us. What we liked, what we didn't, what we wanted and what we needed. She taught us everything we needed to know. Step by step all the way through the process, she kept kept us educated on what was going on. It was a great experience. Shalimar was open, honest and hard working. She always made herself available even late at night (that's when we bought our house). Shalimar is smart and fierce. She shut down an open house, avoided a bidding war, and saved us thousands of dollars all on the same day. We trust her so much, we gave her number to a friend whom she also found a house for. We love Shalimar and so will you. "

    Jennifer Berman and Scott Stevens, Commercial/Film Director
  • "I just wanted to thank you for all your help in the recent sale of my old home and purchase of my new home. Your expert knowledge and attention to detail really made the entire process a breeze. I still can't believe how quickly you found the home of my dreams. I absolutely love my new home and I don't think I would have found it without your help. Please, if you ever need anyone to vouch for you, have them contact me. I can't carry a tune but I'll certainly sing your praises. Thanks again for caring enough to get me the best deal, and whenever it's time for me to move again, you can be sure you will be the first person I call." Wishing you continued success and happiness,

  • "Shalimar, I just wanted say to "Thank You" to you for all of the tedious, hard work that you have done to help my daughter and I find "just the right" house. Your patience and understanding was such a valuable tool when we came upon issues with finding us the "perfect home". All of your previous experience really was an asset. Especially when we would come upon other people that didn't really know what they were talking about. You always knew how to deal with these types of people even when they were completely rude and obnoxious...and most of all you always looked out for my best interests. Even though I have some credit issues, you helped me to explain my situation to potential property owners and helped me to deal with these issues. I would not only recommend that everybody should be using you to handle any "real estate transactions"..... I would INSIST that anybody that I know MUST use you and your knowledge in order to protect themselves. We can't wait to move!!!!" -- Thank You,

    Kevin and Erin Bird
  • As an escrow officer, I have worked with many real estate agents and I can say with great certainty that Shalimar is by far on the top of the scale. We have already referred her to some friends and will continue to refer her to anyone who asks and we will work with her again, if we ever do decide to leave our great new home.
