Life is all about balance. While this is a concept I may have learned on the yoga mat, it definitely comes in handy in the world of real estate! It’s a critical component in successfully negotiating a deal – keeping the various players in balance, balancing expectations, balancing personalities. The best transactions are of the “win-win” variety, where everyone walks away satisfied at the end of the day… a delicate balance to achieve indeed!
Hi, my name is Gladys Barbosa and I am a realtor, a mother, a teacher of yoga, a lover of good food & wine, an enthusiastic fan of ALL kinds of music, a (very!) eclectic antique collector, and fascinated with houses – the stories they tell, the stories they create. I am each of these things… and all of them balanced together.
I have lived on both coasts – from New York & Miami to the San Francisco Bay area – never straying too many miles from the lure of the ocean, sandy beaches, and the sound of the rolling waves. So, it should come as no surprise that I came to settle, and sell real estate, in the Ocean State. I mean – how perfect is that?
My career in real estate began in 2004 but is actually the culmination of 20+ years of marketing & PR experience – from the arenas of corporate banking to international yacht racing to community fundraising – all played out against a backdrop of buying & selling antiques. Throughout the years I also bought and sold houses – for myself to live in, for investment, and fell in love with the process. The thrill of the hunt, the art of the deal, the endless possibilities & potential each property posed… I was hooked!
So now I make my living buying & selling properties for you. While every deal is different, my approach remains the same. Always keep your eye on the end goal, never lose your sense of humor, treat others as you would want to be treated, and if you can keep it all in balance – absolutely anything is possible!
I look forward to meeting and working together with you on the sale or purchase of your next
property... until then, Namaste!
