    Barbara was able to stage and sell my home in less than 30 days, just before the housing market went south in 2022. We were happy to have had a couple of interested parties and worked to get the home sold without much oversight in the process.

    Barbara and Arnie were always there and quite helpful in the negotiation process! As a result of her effort we received an offer that ultimately exceeded our expectations!! Our sale was incredible from start to finish! No home in our area has sold for as much because she knew what buyer’s agents to contact and worked with them tirelessly!????

    We were fortunate to find Barbara Sivba many years ago when we were looking to buy a vacation home on Candlewood Lake. When we decided to move to CT full time, we needed something larger and know exactly who to call to help us put our home on the market. Barbara and her husband Arnie worked their magic to get our home ready to sell. They did some staging, took amazing photos and even blew leaves off the front porch. With their expertise, we had a buyer the first week of the listing! We couldn't be happier with our decision to use the best team of brokers on the lake.

    We were very grateful to work with Barbara and Arnie on the sale of our Candlewood Lake home. Their deep knowledge of the area and the market made it possible for us to find the right buyer for this unique lakeside compound. Barbara and Arnie did a beautiful job of staging and showing the property, and they were warm and personable collaborators throughout the process. Thanks to them, we sold the property quickly and were very happy with our results.

    Barbara is a very experienced and knowledgeable agent and with her husband make a great team. We chose her based on her positive reputation with Candlewood Lake properties. She was well versed in all aspects of the sale of our home and guided us thru the entire process. She was also able to sell our home in short order. We would like to thank Barbara and Arnie for all their efforts and diligence toward that end.

    Ms. Sivba, or as we call her "Dear Barbara", is a lovely, wonderful professional person with an extraordinary enthusiasm to help her clients. We wanted THE BEST to help us sell our house and we were fortunate enough to choose Barbara. She was extremely informative and eloquent regarding our options and what needed to be done for optimal results. Her no-nonsense approach to any issue that arose, was a breath of fresh air, relieving our mind from extra stress and worry because we knew she will manage it expertly, and professionally in a speedy manner. We had been living in our house for almost 25 years; so we were least knowledgeable about the process and what needed to be accomplished. Barbara was extremely patient with all our questions, whether simple or complex; and provided answers and solutions that always brought a sigh of relief to my husband and I who were very nervous about the whole process. She helped us with every aspect of the sale. Any repairs that needed to be done was accomplished by a team of construction professionals at her disposal in a short notice. A great efficient friendly team that delivered on time. Barbara staged our house so beautifully, that we almost changed our minds about selling!! :) She was involved in every aspect of the sale. I felt that God had provided us with a loving, caring "Guardian Angel" thru this stressful time. She works hard everyday for all her clients. I was always amazed at her energy and sweet nature dealing with all sorts of issues, and putting our mind at ease.We will be moving to Florida next month and she even assisted us with our new purchase. Her advice and counsels are immeasurable. Since we now consider Barbara a dear friend, we sincerely hope to see her in the future as a visiting friend, so that we may reciprocate her devotion to results, love, and energetic effort on our behalf. We LOVE Barbara and highly recommend her to help you either sell your house, or buy your dream home.Thank you Barbara. May God Bless You and Yours, Always.Rick & Shahla O'Brien

    Barbara and Arnie are the best team of Brokers on Candlewood Lake. We used them to purchase a vacation home 12 years ago and they helped us find the perfect spot on the lake. Post Covid we decided to move to CT full time. We definitely knew to call Barbara and Arnie to start the search for a larger home. Without much inventory on the lake, they still found us the perfect spot. They knew exactly what we were looking for even before we did! They are very caring people and helped us each step of the way from negotiating improvements on the sale to giving us information on service providers. We couldn't be happier!!!

    Barbara is an amazing agent and I found her to be the ultimate professional in helping me find and buy my new home. As I worked with her to successfully sell my waterfront home she also helped me research the area and find the perfect condo to buy. My purchase was particularly complex and Barbara not only helped me negotiate in a competitive multiple offer situation, she also helped me navigate through a very difficult situation where the condo - an estate - was misrepresented on the listing as a three bedroom. Barbara ensured I got an appropriate credit on the purchase price for this mistake. She was also key in balancing closing dates and managing to a smooth closing, and last but not least, she was incredibly helpful with decorating ideas for the new condo, making the process seamless from start to finish. I'm thrilled with Barbara’s diligence, support and knowledge. She's the type of agent you want when things get tough so you can remain confident and achieve value in the purchase of your home. I highly recommend her!

    Barbara and Arnie Sivba are an amazing team and I found them to be the ultimate professionals when it came time to sell my home. I worked with Barbara and Arnie many years ago when we first built our home, and they proved that from start to finish they have the whole package. From staging our home for sale, to contacting and bringing qualified buyers, to helping find the right contractors to ready the home for sale, they made the process seamless. Ultimately securing the right buyer for our home, we achieved a fabulous market price in a down trending environment post Covid.If you want confidence and value in the sale of your home, the Sivba Team are the agents to choose to list your home. I highly recommend them.

    Barbara did a fantastic job selling our house. Her knowledge of the area is unsurpassed. She communicated well with us and the buyers. She was there to help at every turn. We were away a lot of the time and she coordinated inspections and met people at the house when we could not.
