Barton is simply a real estate rock star! John and I were absolutely delighted with his communication, service & the lovely marketing of our home. We received multiple offers over asking & closed quickly with extra time to move! – Beth C.

We were lucky enough to stumble upon Barton while he was showing a house for sale. We instantly liked him because he is such a sincere person. Who wouldn't want this quality when dealing with something as important as buying a home! I highly recommend him.

What a great find in Barton - he was patient and listened to what I needed! It took a while but we looked and found the perfect home for my family! I would recommend Barton to anyone buying in Petaluma - he knows it well.

I am living with Multiple Sclerosis and have specific needs for a home. Since I do not drive, we needed a property close to where my wife works and downtown where I can bank and handle personal needs. The home also had to be accessible for a wheelchair. Many of the homes on the market did not meet these requirements. As we were moving to this Petaluma from San Jose, we originally worked with another agents, but they did not respond to these needs. A colleague referred us to Barton Smith who clearly responded to our needs and did not waste our time looking at unsuitable properties. He showed us an ideal property and assisted us in negotiating on a home. A year later we are thrilled with our purchase. We have sold and bought homes across the country over the years and would highly recommend Barton.

Barton Smith is an excellent realtor. We have landed in a market where a) there aren’t a lot of houses for sale, b) houses sell quickly and over asking price, and c) there are wide ranging options (city, country, new, old, expensive, less expensive). Yet with this scenario, Barton doesn’t pressure us at all, has a gift for tuning in to his clients, and offers useful and professional advice. He hits a perfect balance of being attentive and responsive, but not pushy in any way. We feel taken care of and confident with Barton’s knowledge of this area, the market, negotiation, business, details (zoning/construction/soil), and above all, old fashioned, authentic people skills. He gracefully handles the curve balls we throw his way; it’s assuring during this time of transition to be in such competent hands.
As a Financial Services professional, I've had the opportunity to work with numerous Realtors via client transactions throughout my 15+ yr career and to say Barton is the best is an understatement. From day one he set the right expectations and coached me on the purchasing process. He educated me on the marketplace so I could make sound offers and kept me abreast of new opportunities as soon as they hit his radar. More importantly, he was superbly efficient and responsive when I needed his help. His thoroughness and follow up truly sets him apart from the rest. – Alex P.
