Barbara has over 40 years of experience as a REALTOR with over 25 years in PONTE VEDRA BEACH. Growing up in Princeton, New Jersey where her mother had her own real estate business, Barbara learned the skills and qualities of integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, sophisticated marketing and effective negotiation skills as well as the importance of building a high quality professional network.  Barbara’s customer first philosophy comes in part from her years of living the “corporate relocation life” where she found herself buying and selling homes in Texas, Tennessee, South Carolina, California and finally PONTE VEDRA BEACH.  Barbara’s approach has always been to provide the best customer service by being an excellent listener as well as a great communicator and responding quickly to her client’s needs.  Barbara is continually evaluating the latest technology to assist in keeping her accessible to clients and allowing her to respond quickly to changing market conditions. Yet she never forgets the value of tried and true communication- a phone call, face-to-face talk or a handwritten note. Barbara values the relationship she makes with each client.  Many have bought and sold several homes, through different phases of life, with Barbara’s assistance.  When you are looking to buy or sell a home in the “BEACHES” ATLANTIC BEACH, NEPTUNE BEACH, JACKSONVILLE BEACH, PONTE VEDRA BEACH and VILANO BEACH please contact Barbara. She would love to help you find a place to call home!

Over the last 16 years, I have called upon Barbara for two different purchases (one from a developer and one from a family) and three different sales (one condo, one home, one estate sale.) Regardless of how the circumstances changed, she rose to the occasion.

Barbara Maples and Christine Shaffer were recommended to me by a family friend, and they were wonderful. I was in a rush to move, and Barbara entered our chaotic scene with confidence, reassurance and expert advice. Both Barbara and Christine went the extra mile to make all the business of selling less stressful, so I could concentrate on getting to where I needed to be. Wonderful agents! Thank you so much, Barbara and Christine!

Barbara truly went the extra mile to represent me with the sale of my condo from long distance. She is delightful, competent and efficient. I could not have asked for more.

Eve Eckardt

I'd work with Barbara again in a heartbeat! She's professional, kind, and flexible. Barbara is sympathetic and understanding. Most importantly, Barbara is a savvy business person, extremely familiar with the market and the buying and selling process.

Barbara went above and beyond in helping us find the right property. Once we had an accepted contract, she handled all of the details to propel us to a quick, efficient close. Thank you Barbara - looking forward to our next deal with you! Jim & Cyndi Thatcher

We just closed on an exciting home in Ponte Vedra that hopefully will become our permanent home before too long. The reason for this note is to let you know how nice of an experience it was for Melanie and me to work with "Barbara Maple". Not only did she help us find the home of our dreams, she acted quickly and energetically to secure the home for us in a very competitive multi-offer environment. 
 
The nicest part for me was watching a true professional do her trade beautifully.  I never had any doubt at any time that every detail wasn't being handled expeditiously by she and Christine. Melanie loved dealing with her because she was able to watch in person what she knows that I have taught so many agents for so many years.
 
Please know confidently that Barbara represents and exceeds all that "The Watson Way" encompasses.

Barbara gets it all done, on time. She is a pleasure to work with.

Barbara Maple was fantastic to work with! At our first meeting she met with the property owner (parent) and us (POA) to learn of our needs and the anticipated timing of putting the house on the market. She acted in an advisory counselor role, making suggestions based on our needs. When we needed resources for roofing, carpet cleaning, painting, etc., she provided suggestions, all of which we were thoroughly pleased with. Throughout the process, Barbara was a consummate professional, affording our Dad respect and attention, even visiting him in his Assisted Living Facility once he moved there. Barbara is conscientious, returns phone calls and emails in a timely manner, and as our needs changed, provided alternative solutions. When we received multiple offers, Barbara helped us weigh the alternatives, and pointed out the pros and cons of each decision. We never felt "pushed" to make a quick sale, but rather to make the right sale! There is only one realtor I would consider working with, and that is Barbara Maple, I can't speak highly enough of her and her team.

Barbara is great to work with. She is organized, dependable and always pleasant. She takes a potentially stressful situation and makes it flow smoothly. Wether you are selling or buying she is totally in your corner. Thank you Barbara! Beverly Benson

We could not be more pleased with our experience with Barbara Maple and Christine. In one word - excellent. Barbara is very pleasant, congenial, and works hard at her job. I would certainly use her services again and would recommend her highly to my friends and acquaintances.

Last year, we faced the difficult decision to sell my family home of 25 years. Barbara and her assistant, Christine, were absolutely wonderful and took great care of us and our home. They went to great lengths to help us prepare our home for listing, getting beautiful professional photos made, marketing it, getting great prospective buyers in, providing us frequent feedback and updates along the way, and ultimately led us to a great buyer. They helped make what was a difficult and challenging experience for us a very smooth and seamless selling process. Then, we were also fortunate enough to have Barbara and Christine help us purchase a new home. They were so patient and accommodating and again, helped my family through a roller coaster of a year with moving twice! They were just wonderful and we would absolutely enlist their services again if we're ever in need of searching or selling a home again. We highly recommend Barbara and Christine!

Barbara Maple has been our realtor in the sale of two of our homes. In both instances she was a true professional, presenting the properties in various media (the written press, internet and television). In dealing with other realtors who showed the properties, Barbara and her assistant, Christine Shaffer were always available to deal with those realtors. Barbara was also always helpful in advising us of the status of possible prospective buyers and following up. She kept us informed of progress and eventually sold the properties. I have nothing but the highest respect and regard for her and for her professionalism.

Bill Swanson

My house was listed/sold/ closed in 30 days. I was advised on an ongoing basis as to the activity when the house was shown and given feedback from potential buyers. The marketing plan was extensive and encompassing. Barbara is a dedicated, knowledgeable, experienced real estate professional. When working with Barbara, you learn quickly you are working with THE BEST.

Alice Fielding

You won’t find a better realtor than Barbara Maple and her team. A first class approach to preparation and sale of our home yielded a full price offer the weekend it was placed on the market. I would not hesitate to recommend this team whether your goal is to sell your home or buy a new home.

 

Terry, Jacksonville

Barbara Maple and her team recently helped us through the sale of our old home and the purchase of new one in Ponte Vedra Beach. Barbs' team and Barbara were extremely professional, her marketing excellent and her determination to sell our old home and find us a new one, unparalleled.

Both of the transactions were complicated, but Barbara's excellent knowledge of real estate helped us complete both the sale and purchase as painlessly as possible.

Ms. Maple and her team make every effort to make the client feel like they are the only ones with whom they are working. Phone calls are returned promptly and requested information arrives quickly as well.

Ultimately, the question of a realtor's skill and efficacy is simple; "Would you use them again?". For us, the answer is equally simple. We wouldn't use anyone else.

Dear Barbara, Yesterday, through your hard work, and your exceptional, experience-honed knowledge and skills, you helped us to reach an important milestone...We want to take this opportunity to recognize your efforts, and to express our thanks for the way you have worked with us to get to this point. We especially appreciate how you have consistently demonstrated your patience, flexibility, and willingness to apply your talents at a level above and beyond all expectations, and done so in such a gracious, pleasant manner.

We know we have been rather demanding clients. Our experience has taught us that the way to achieve excellent results in any important project is to choose the very best person for the job, and then challenge them to be even better. We are so grateful that you have continuously risen to the challenge in such an outstanding way. We realize how fortunate we are to have found such an amazing professional to help us to achieve our goals...Most importantly, however, it has been our great privilege to have met and to be working with such a genuinely nice person. July 2014
