Despite the fact that there were a number of similar condos on the market in Twin Lakes, Barbara remained optimistic and did in fact sell it in a timely manner. She was very responsive to my calls and to my questions.
Barbara listed and found a buyer for a small piece of land on Twin Lakes that I had been stuck with for years. She is very knowledgeable about the Twin Lakes area.
She helped us sell two lots on Twin Lakes, ID. We ran into trouble with the title on one of the lots and had to hire an attorney to sort it all out. Through this all, Barbara managed to keep the buyers happy and they waited for us to work out all the details that needed attending to. She was just great in a difficult deal.

Barbara is a lovely individual and new friend. She helped us purchase our new home in Hayden idaho, from the seattle area. The long distance was no deterrent to her. She smoothly executed the papers, multiple addendums, helped us locate a local financial institution, coordinated all the closing stuff and made it seem effortless. She was always available for helping answer our questions and allaying our concerns. She is honest, has tons of integrity and great sense of humor. We would highly recommend her to anyone needing an agent in the hayden/couer d'Alene area. She knows the area well.

We enjoyed working with you. You followed through with our direct requests. Always keeping in touch with us was so important. Having knowledge and specializing in Waterfront was a great help. We closed in 3 weeks. We will recommend you to all our friends and family."

"In 2008, Barbara Swehosky cold our lake cabin on Twin Lakes in less than four months. When we decided to "take the plunge" we never considered any other realtor since we were aware Barbara's knowledge of the area and her professional expertise - her easy going nature turned out to be an added blessing. We also never considered trying to sell the cabin on our own since we were very aware of the legal ramifications, volumes of paperwork and security issues involved. While Barbara wound up representing both us and the buyer, we feel we got a very fair price and never once felt "sold down the river" in favor of the buyer. We would never hesitate to recommend Barbara when it comes to buying and selling real estate - if she doesn't know the answer to something - she knows how to find it!"

During the sale of our home you were the perfect combination of (nurturing) mother and best friend. Thank you for your tireless work on our behalf.

"Barbara did an outstanding job and was very professional. We bought two houses from her in a matter of three months and would recommend her to any of our friends if they were interested in purchasing a home. She even went to the Title Company and went through the whole process with us, so if there were questions or something we didn't understand, she was there to help. I can't say enough about her professionalism. Always on top of everthing. Her assistant was great also. So friendly and willing to help with anything we needed or questions answered."
"We are very impressed with the way you handled the purchase of our new home. You are very good at what you do and we would be proud to refer you to our friends or acquantances. Thank you for such a great job!"

"Your guidance and concern through out the entire process was invaluable, and I not only felt like I was your client, but also your friend."
"Being first time buyers we needed education and were concerned about making some decisions. Barbara helped us see our options and it proved to be a very comfortable feeling...Barbara is kind, polite, soft-spoken, a bright human being and we appreciate her. She spent many hours late at night meeting with us and never said a word of the inconvenience it may have caused her."

"...I really feel you listen. This is very important to me. You answer all the dumb questions. You are kind and patient with your clients. You give honest, fair and to the point opinions. You are much more than a client could expect."
"...I have dealt with many agents, but you have been the best. You are so motivated, friendly, courteous, thoughtful, and most of all you get the job done. I am committed to you. Thank you for all of the dedicated hard work you have done for me and my family in years past."
"...Your service to us has been exceptional - besides being a fine person, you are a good saleslady. I admire your professionalism in your property dealings, you are thorough, honest and sincere."
"It is with great pleasure that I tell you what a special lady Miss Barbara is so that during your consideration of a realtor, you will have some idea of what kind of person she is.
My story regarding the purchase of my home is really a testimony to Miss Barbara and the kind of work she performs. I had been out of the work force for 15-years when I met Miss Barbara. My income was solely Social Security Disability. My son had just finished a stint in the US Navy and was coming home after being gone for 6-years. I was legally blind at the time and was staying with my daughter. My son and I decided that we wanted to buy a house and we contacted Barbara.
There was no credit for me as I was disabled and could offer nothing in the way of money for a down. Barbara worked so hard to find a house for us and when things looked pretty bleak, she came through with a brand new, never lived in home at a price we could afford. We tried qualifying us through the bank that Barbara usually used and after 3-weeks, we found that no one had even started working on our case. Barbara said, "Well, you just keep the faith because I know a lady that is interested in getting my business" and she promptly pulled our papers and within a week she had us at another bank with this new person who really worked miracles for us. It is impossible to buy a home with hardly any credit and a person on disability, believe me, but Barbara made it happen.
Barbara would call me every day during the weeks we were looking for a home. I remember once when things looked very bad for us, she called me and we were on the phone until midnight while she worked miracles our for us. We got our home and through Miss Barbara's generosity, she had us in it in 30-days. I am truly grateful to her and I recommend her services to you. You will enjoy a unique relationship with her while you are going through the process of buying a home. She truly cares about her clients and it shows in all her actions and deeds. Do enjoy the services she provides you and know that she is the best!!
"Kaye’s demeanor is probably her best asset. She is so positive and upbeat that the client feels confident that she will do as promised. She tirelessly promoted my secluded private home and property but with a sensitive touch knowing how difficult is was for me to sell my deceased husband’s dream and the families only home. She never failed to answer any question; she was always prompt; she was generous with her personal time. She is a beautiful lady, professionally as well as personally. She will be my choice when I sell again. Keep her Keller Williams!

"Thanks so much for all of your hard work. We really love our new house. Your work is so important and you do it with such heart. You have a natural talent for Real Estate."

"Dear Barbara & Brian,
Thank you both so very much for your assistance in the sale of the Garwood property. Your patience and professionalism went a long way in making this transaction so very much easier for me. In fact, except to provide you with the information you required, I didn't have to do anything and I truly appreciate that.
I will certainly keep you in mind should I need your services in the future and I won't hesitate to make a referral if I have the opportunity to do so."
