Lisa is awesome. We were working in a very tight timeframe and Lisa was up to the challenge. She is a great listener and showed us properties that were exactly what we were looking for. Her knowledge of the area is second to none and her insight and suggestions were priceless. We went under contract and that's when she took over. The process of setting up the home inspection, getting the utilities changed over into our names and setting up settlement was seamless. If it sounds like we were impressed it's because WE WERE IMPRESSED. She is the ultimate professional. Thanks, Lisa!!!
In the past, I had tried other agents with NO results; some of them just listed the house and that was it. I asked a friend who lives in Lewes if she had any recommendations and right away said, Lisa Barros. Lisa was a great agent from start to finish. I had a unique situation with selling my house and Lisa got the job done! I never "met" Lisa in person... I live in New Castle County and she worked with me. I would call, text or email her and she responded right away. She was in constant communication with me regarding the listing, showings and the settlement process. It was a pleasure working with Lisa. If you are in need of a great realtor, Lisa is the person to call!
We highly recommend Lisa Barros for your buying and selling needs. She was great to work with in helping us purchase our home. She was always quick to return all messages. Lisa was a pleasure doing business with.
Don’t lose Lisa. She is an asset to your company. I never expected to sell my house so quick. Never gave a thought to changing to another realtor.

I was so impressed with Lisa I asked her to list my mother’s home. I’ve bought and sold approximately 15 houses in my lifetime and have never been as impressed as I was with Lisa’s professional, conscientious, dedicated, and above all, hard-working attitude. I believe Lisa, and you, went above and beyond the call of duty regarding listing, selling, and seeing our way through settlement. Thanks again and I would use and recommend you and Lisa over and over again.

When we hired you to sell our home, we based it on the professional way you carried yourself and your track records. This was a gut feeling since we were unaware of which agents really did a good job or not. You proved our gut feeling was 100% right. You sold our home in record time and brought in a sale which was above our asking price. You made sure our interest came first, even if it cost you a sale.All I can say, if someone is looking to buy and sell a home, you are the agent they should pick. Buying and selling is very stressful, but you made the procedure and the experience pleasant.

In the year that I have purchased and sold Real Estate, I have met few Realtors that I found to be as knowledgeable about their market and as professional as Lisa Barros. Lisa prepared a marketing plan which included an aerial video of our home and the vicinity and high gloss brochures which added the perfect touch on selling our home quickly and nearly for the full market price. Lisa is truly one of the best.
- CARCHG01, Rehboth Beach
Lisa was a class act from the very beginning. She is very knowledgeable of the local market and was a great help with pricing. She pays attention to detail and made a great effort preparing the condo for sale.(Especially helpful because my primary residence is a distance away) We had an offer in a few weeks! Lisa is very professional and highly recommended.
- Rich, Lewes
Lisa was incredible to work with and helped us find the perfect vacation home in Bethany Beach, DE. She was knowledgeable, patient, and incredibly responsive. Lisa worked with us to find a home that truly suited our family. Thank you for your attention to detail and help with every aspect of the sale, Lisa! You are a true gem!
- Patty, Bethany Beach
My home sold within days of listing because of Lisa Barros’ real estate expertise and online presence. Lisa was hands-on in every step of the process, from readying my home to transfer of ownership, and her dedication is impressive. Lisa has an engaging personality, great communication skills and thorough knowledge of the Delaware shore real estate market. For anyone interested in buying or selling near the Delaware beaches, I highly recommend that you contact Lisa Barros.
Lisa was very personable and was always very quick to get back to us with all of our questions. She had a great knowledge of each community we looked at and we really valued her opinion.
- James and Melissa
We worked with Lisa for over two years to find our beach home. She handled a very personal experience with professionalism, enthusiasm and respect. She never gave up on finding us the perfect home even when we became discouraged. We recommend Lisa to everyone we meet because she is world class and is always one hundred percent in your corner. If you want the best, Lisa is your agent.
- Ann and Neal, Potomac, MD
Working with Lisa Barros was an absolute joy. We met by chance--I stopped in to an Open House--out of curiosity, nothing more--and we chatted a bit. My husband and I were not yet ready to buy a house, and I made that very clear to Lisa, and I knew she understood. When she said she was available to show us properties, I explained that I didn't want to waste her time, since we weren't seriously looking. Her response to me was perfect: she said, "I never feel my time is wasted, since I learn something new every time I meet with a client." So, over the next few months--always at our request--she showed us a few places that we thought looked interesting. When we found a house we loved, Lisa was by our side the whole way. She was professional, reasonable, incredibly responsive, informative, smart and a great negotiator. She said, over and over, that she wanted us to do what was right for us--and she helped us do that. We feel strongly that Lisa helped make the home-buying process as easy, even fun, as it could be. We will always be grateful for Lisa's guidance and her humor, and we highly recommend her to friends and family.

"We worked with Lisa Barros as we were considering purchasing a home in Lewes Delaware. We had no idea of what we wanted to buy, where we wanted to buy or how much we could afford. We met with Lisa and explained to her what we thought we wanted. Lisa took the time to talk to us about communities, amenities, the different areas of the beach and what was around us. She showed us numerous communities over the course of 3 days. She instinctively knew what we were looking for. Lisa helped us find the perfect home, in the perfect community. Once we put a contract on a house, she worked with us through the building and settlement process. She continues to be in contact with us and has become a trusted advisor and friend. We HIGHLY recommend Lisa to any customer who is seeking the highest quality realtor -- one who cares and is truly your advocate. You will not find a more dedicated or smart realtor in this area.”

Buying or selling I would strongly recommend Lisa! Had been looking for a beach house in Rehoboth for several years (with several other realtors and with no luck) and Lisa was recommended by a Realtor with whom I had done work with. From the start she knew there very specific characteristics I had for the property I was seeking. Further, Lisa knew that this would not be a fast transaction as there is rarely inventory for homes that met my requirements. Nonetheless, Lisa spent time and had great patience in providing prospects. The process took some time but ultimately resulted in a purchase in late 2016. In relation to the transaction itself. I honestly do not think that many other realtors could have successfully navigated the subtleties associated with the transaction. Lisa's knowledge of local market nuances, seller objectives, and transactional history of the property type were essential to getting the deal completed. Throughout the process she remained level-header and provided salient advice which ultimately led to a purchase that my wife and I have been extremely satisfied with.
- Eric and Marla, Rehoboth Beach
Lisa is absolutely the right realtor for any buyer. She is enthusiastic with a capital "E!" We looked at many properties and Lisa was always prompt, knowledgeable and patient. She gave honest feedback regarding our needs.
- Molly, Lewes
Lisa listened to our needs, gave us honest feedback on pricing, and worked tirelessly to sell our beach house. She was creative in marketing the house to find the right buyer, and always returned phone calls and emails promptly. She was also helpful in negotiating terms with perspective buyers. We would definitely recommend her services to others.
- Glenn and Sarah
Working with you was a real pleasure and we are grateful for everything you did to market our home and bring a sale to conclusion. What stands out most in our minds in the way you served us, were the "whatever it takes" efforts in turning lights on and off, checking the house, meeting repairmen, etc. We know it can be difficult to pinpoint any one thing that actually results in a sale, but what we do know is that with your guidance, advertising, and marketing, you created all the conditions to make it happen and it did. We were struck from the very beginning with your expertise, professionalism, candor and integrity. We wish you continued success with your business and send best wishes for all good things to you and your family in 2016.
Please stay in touch and we hope to see you before too long.

We had the pleasure of working with Lisa Barros and Sotheby's and we'd like to help ensure that others will too!
We recently listed and successfully sold our home with Lisa Barros of Sotheby's. The combination of Lisa's knowledge and dedication, together with Sotheby's first class marketing techniques made for a dream team. We would like to emphasize that Lisa truly sets herself apart from many other realtors by virtue of her professionalism and unwavering dedication.
We were always impressed by Lisa's attention to detail, from the listing intake to the initial presentation of our home to market, to the generation of prospective buyers, to the contract process and through settlement. She was with us 100%.
Her innovative communication and marketing skills are top notch. She never once left us to wonder what was happening. She kept in constant touch with us, letting us know every step of the way exactly what she was doing to promote our home, and she provided detailed feedback from every showing.
Even though Lisa remained very busy with other buyers and sellers, she always made us feel as if we were her only client; not an easy task. On many occasions Lisa went out of her way to see to it that she was there for us when many other agents might not have done so. And, importantly, her "do what it takes" actions and attitude were always combined with a cheerful disposition while multitasking.
Bottom line, we got results!
We heartily endorse Lisa Barros for your real estate needs. She is exceptional and a class act. You won't regret putting your real estate business in her hands.
- Diana L.
Fabulous realtor; detailed, organized and always two steps ahead!
- Michelle and Brandon M.
We are so grateful for your help in finding the right place for us. Being from out of state, with limited time afforded to meet our goals, we would say this was a challenge for us all.
The process began well before our arrival to Delaware. You prepared relevant questions for us to respond to in order to determine what we were looking for and our price range, so that our time looking at properties would be maximized.
You showed us a wide variety of properties around the area, honing in on our tastes, pointing out the advantages, and in some cases the disadvantages, of each. Thank you for providing those little reminders that we can forget about when there is some excitement in finding a potential new home.
You not only provided our daily home viewing itineraries, but also made it interesting for us by describing and/or viewing local attractions, parks, restaurants and shopping. It is obvious that you enjoy this area very much.
Although we ended by purchasing in a new development, you remained in touch and available to help in our stead, when things arose that we could not physically attend to ourselves. Having you there, in Delaware, was a comfort to us both.
Anyone looking for a realtor in this area, would be remiss if they did not contact you.
- Molly & Nancy
Lisa did a great job of leading us through the process of buying a home. We were first-time buyers and Lisa was with us each step of the way, giving advice and educating us. Lisa was very dependable and was instrumental in helping us get to where we are today- inside of our lovely new home!
- Corey and Kelley
I am writing this testimonial for Mrs. Lisa Barros, a realtor with Ocean Atlantic Sotheby’s International Realty.
Last year, some friends of ours purchased property in Bethany Beach. They wanted us to come and see their condo in case we might also be interested in buying beach property. We only had a few hours to visit them and the area because we were on our way home from vacation elsewhere. At the time, we were just looking and weren’t real serious buyers. When we arrived at Bethany Beach, we drove around to get our bearings and see what the area had to offer, as well as, looked for communities where we might be interested in buying.
In touring the area, we visited several open houses and new developments. In one of the open houses, Lisa Barros was the agent representing the property. She was really quite pleasant and very patient with all the questions we had and was very knowledgeable about the area. While we liked the property and community where she was holding the open house, it wasn’t quite what we were interested in. She suggested some other areas that we might wish to look at and offered to send us listings based on the information we gave her about what we were looking for. We returned home and began our own search for properties, and in the meantime, Mrs. Barros almost immediately began forwarding listings of properties for us to look at. When we were ready to see some real estate we called Mrs. Barros. She was very eager to start the process with us, and show us some properties.
After several visits to the area, we finally found our condo. Many thanks to Mrs. Barros who really worked hard for us in negotiating and finalizing the contract. It was a long process since there was some back and forth between us and the seller, but Mrs. Barros was always on the job and available to you 24/7. We had the utmost confidence that she always had our best interests in mind. She is very friendly, pleasant to deal with, and above all extremely professional. Because of her efforts, we had a very positive experience.
- Carol S. & Jane Z.
We just wanted to say how much we loved working with Lisa! She was so responsive to our needs, she answers questions accurately and quickly. Her follow up was great during and after our purchase. Lisa was also great at problem-solving, she worked with the seller's agent numerous times to iron out some sticky issues that we were having trouble with and came up with quick and efficient solutions. She is one of the best agents we have ever used!
- Kristi I. & Mike I.
Jamie and I want to thank you so much for all your hard work and involvement with our recent purchase of a home for a disabled relative in Sussex County. It ﬁlls the bill entirely and it was your efforts that located it and your expertise that guided us through the settlement process.
Thanks again for all you did for us and we look forward to working together in the future.
- Jack M. & Jamie M.
Thank you so much for recommending Lisa as realtor for our Ocean View, DE home. Lisa is a true professional, making everything seem effortless-- and more importantly worry-free. (even in crucial times she handled any problem like it wasn't a problem!)
Lisa heard everything we wanted from the start, and fulfilled all of our requests:
- No lockbox-- which meant Lisa had to be there for all showings to turn security code on and off. We felt comfortable knowing our lights and water were turned off-- and all doors and windows closed.
Calling us after all showings for feedback- something she excelled at!
Communication on every level-- returned emails and phone calls promptly.
Advertising-- made beautiful brochures, handouts and ads for media
Internet--listed on all the sites we wanted
Hosted open houses
However, the most impressive traits that Lisa has is her optimism, attention to detail, and going beyond what was expected to help us out. We found it a pleasure to work with her!
Thank you again,
