Barbara McLaughlin, Realtor on the Move From NC to TX
Meet Realtor Barbara McLaughlin
Barbara’s motto in life and the “secret” of her success as a Realtor is to always give more than you receive. Barbara grew up in Kentucky and began her real estate career nearly 40 years ago in the small military town of Cherry Point, NC. She was the first woman realtor in a good-old-boy town. She remembers very well the first house she sold. It was to a young military family coming in from overseas.
Over the years her real estate career flourished as she and her husband moved to California, Arizona Colorado, and Nevada. She didn’t like the lifestyle of Las Vegas and wanted to move to an area of the country with trees, lakes and fairly close to a beach. After much research she decided the Austin are met all of her needs. That was back in 2009 and today she says she couldn’t be happier.
Where is Barbara Now?
Since then Barbara has been a top-producer for JB Goodwin Realtors. She was recently honored as the company’s top corporate relocation agent as well as the President’s “Crescent” award for going “above and beyond expectations.” . She is also very active with the Williamson County Association of Realtors.
