A first class agreement between buyer and seller begins with the right match of client and Realtor.
Barbara Reynolds, with an innate skill set honed by years of professional, community, and government experience, is a highly principled Realtor you can count on to assist you with a positive, productive experience when buying and/or selling a home.
Having lived overseas, followed by a transfer to New Jersey and then Fairfield County where she and her family have lived in Weston for 20 plus years, Barbara understands firsthand the stress that can result in relocation, but, more importantly, she knows how to minimize that stress through clear communication and effective action; quickly helping the client to prioritize their needs and desires.
As an expert in negotiations, Barbara can address issues and solve problems promptly to ensure that your purchase or sale proceeds as smoothly as possible. Her experience in negotiations includes years as an oil tanker broker, mediating deals between oil traders and ship owners, working as an elected member to the Weston Board of Education where she served on the contracts negotiation committee, and partnering with architects and town building committee members to ensure that school construction moved forward properly, staying on task within the educational guidelines outlined for the project.
Thanks to a reputation for great listening skills, ability to manage conflicting issues in a positive way, and integrity, Barbara was appointed to the Town of Weston Panel of Moderators and is the only Realtor serving on Weston’s Strategic Planning Committee.

“I have only good things to say about Barbara Reynolds! She was very fast to respond to our initial inquiry, and she listened to our very specific requirements and helped us find the perfect home for our family. I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of buying or selling a house!” Stephen and Teresa R.“Barbara not only listened to all of our must-haves during the search for our first home, but she also took note of our wants and deal breakers. Barbara showed us multiple homes right in line with these preferences, and was so knowledgeable about each specific home's community-based perks, such as transportation, local resources, etc. As this was our first house purchase, it was crucial to have her consistent support along the way. Most notable of all, more than Barbara's reliable responses and expertise, Barbara took such great note of our preferences that she negotiated through network contacts the purchase of our first home that wasn't even listed yet on the market and was in the exact neighborhood we preferred above all others. Barbara made a stressful process significantly easier to manage, for which we are so grateful. We highly recommend Barbara should you be searching for a new home.” Chelsea and John V.“I met Barbara Reynolds when I first moved to Connecticut. I had a general idea of where I wanted to live and where I could afford to live. Barbara helped me see the possibilities given my financial and life style criteria in several towns around Westport. She spent time finding me the right place because she spent time getting know me. Barbara even found me a lender which was not an easy task given my unique financial situation. I can wholeheartedly recommend Barbara Reynolds for any real estate needs you may have. She is professional, knowledgeable, and a genuinely wonderful person.” Libby C.“We used Barbara to sell our house in Weston. We listed it first with another realtor and nothing happened… we sold our house after three months! Barbara is also a resident of Weston who knows the town and its great school system. I would recommend using Barbara as the number one realtor in Weston – she is fantastic!” – Barbara S.“Selling a home can be a traumatic event fraught with many challenges, especially in the difficult realty market environment we currently face. I am absolutely delighted, having just closed on the sale of a Weston home, to have chosen Barbara Reynolds of Halstead. Her persistence in representing my interests, her patience, knowledge, willingness to be there when needed, made the sales process a seamless pleasure. We sold our property at the anticipated price and in short order with Barbara's sound advice and guidance. Looking back I wouldn't change a thing and recommend her highly to anyone seeking to minimize the stress of selling a home.” - Leon K.
