What my clients say…

“Barbara was a joy to work with! She really paid attention to what we wanted and helped us secure our dream home. Due to how the timing worked out we were making our initial offer over a holiday weekend and she was there to help us every step of the way. She went way above and beyond.

“The transition of moving to Iowa was simplified by the help and friendship of Barbara. She understands the market and shared information with us that was pertinent to buying our home in the Driftless! Her professionalism and outgoing personality made working with Barbara a true pleasure. As she says, she doesn’t sell houses, she sells homes!”

-Liz and Mike ’17


“When we decided to move to Decorah, we really didn’t know what we wanted at all – in or out of town, new or old, large or small. Barbara showed us houses, asked a lot of questions, and found us the perfect home. It was a pleasure to work with Barbara from start to finish! If you are buying a house in the Decorah area, you should definitely consider having Barbara Massman help you find your new home.”

“We appreciated Barbara’s ethics and her pleasing personality, we trusted Barbara to understand our needs, Barbara gave us a big picture view of real estate and houses on the market. We respected her judgment and were comfortable to purchase a home sight unseen, a great value as we were moving from a distance. Barbara noticed the details,a good communicator, she went above and beyond our expectations, making our long distance move as smooth as possible. We would highly recommend her as a Realtor. Thank-you.”

“Barbara was very patient with us as buyers. Barbara showed us many homes in a wide price range over the many months that we were looking for a home. She is a lot of fun and is really looking to get her buyers into the right home.”

“Barbara has been our Realtor since 2001. She has represented us when both buying and selling several properties. Each time she has exhibited an extraordinary work ethic, attention to detail, and, an amazing ability to match buyers and sellers with one another. Barbara’s many years of experience as a real estate agent mean she is well positioned to understand and to meet the needs of her clients. She is “the lovely lady with backbone!”

-Dean and Jackie ’09


“Barbara was a great help to us last year as we were moving from the east coast to Decorah. Above all other Realtors she was able to find us the right home at the right price. Through her vision of the potential for the home we were able to come to a decision and execute the purchase of a great home in a wonderful neighborhood. We were grateful for her honesty, sense of practicality and attention to detail that allowed us to move directly into our new home as soon as we needed to be there. She went the extra mile by sending us many additional photos online to which saved us the expense of trips cross country to settle the arrangements. Through her contacts in the construction industry, she was able to guide us through the estimates and arrangements we needed to make for several major updates and repairs which made the home better suite our needs and make it comfortable for our family. She was also our eyes and ears to care for the property as the community experienced floods the week before we were to arrive and move in. Her enthusiasm as an ambassador to her community was refreshing and knowledge of community resources greatly aided us in our transition to Iowa. We would definitely recommend her to others considering a move or the purchase of a home in Decorah.”
