She is a Realtor with advanced education as a Certified Residential Specialist, Accredited Buyer’s Representative and as a Short Sale Foreclosure Resource she has vast experience in relocation purchases and sales.

She establishes long term working relationships and friendships with her clients and she is grateful to them for helping her become a largely referral based business. In addition to the support of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, the number one brokerage on the North Shore, Barb and her clients receive the exceptional support of the team, which also includes her daughter and broker, Jackie Pepoon. With this support, all of her clients' needs are addressed in a timely manner and no phone call or email goes unanswered.

Selling With Confidence Ranked in the Top 2% of Coldwell Banker agents nationwide and the Top 3% Internationally, Barb offers her sellers dedication, commitment, and success. Barb assures you when she takes your listing that she is in it from the start to the final detail. “I am not going to put a sign up in your yard and then walk away" is her promise to clients. In addition to this promise of care and attentiveness to the sale of your home, Barb also relies on the successful formula she has developed of what she calls “casting a wide net. Selling a home is like fishing: you have to try a lot of different spots i.e. the Internet (Zillow, Trulia,,, and over 60 more), open houses, brochures and so many other lines that you drop different places to see where the buyer bites.” Indeed, no stone will be left unturned in securing you a qualified buyer for your home. Buying With Barb One of the greatest joys of Barb’s job is being able to watch a client walk into a beautiful home and say, “Wow! This is it!” It’s a privilege and a pleasure to facilitate these moments and help individuals and families find that next home that perfectly suits their lifestyle. Barb tells her buyer clients the following, “I equate finding the right house to finding a mate. You’ll know when it’s the right one. It’s my job to play matchmaker and make the process of buying or selling a home smooth and successful.” Barb promises you limitless patience in your quest to find that ideal property. In addition, if you are relocating to the area and need help finding resources, schools, or amenities, Barb is a neighborhood expert and will make absolutely sure you feel at home from day one in your new community. Whether you are a first-time buyer or experienced investor, Barb looks forward to working with you every step of the way. Background and Family An honors graduate from the University of Wisconsin (Go Badgers!) with a degree in business, Barb worked at First Chicago where she sold tax exempt bonds becoming an Assistant Vice President by the age of twenty-eight because of her outstanding sales records. She brings the same energy and enthusiasm to her role as a Realtor. Barb has been a resident of Northbrook for over twenty-five years. In her free time, she tries to explore the plethora of wonderful events and amenities our Chicagoland area has to offer. She belongs to the Botanic Garden and loves to visit there often. She also enjoys the theater district and an occasional opera at the Lyric, Ravinia, Navy Pier, and museums like the Shedd. She says, “I have to be a bit spontaneous because my schedule is always changing!” Awards and Designations International President's Elite Top 3% International Coldwell Banker Agents Top 2% National Coldwell Banker Agents ABR - Accredited Buyer’s Representative CRS - Certified Residential Specialist GRI - Graduate of the Realtors Institute SFR - Short Sale Foreclosure Resource Cartus Relocation Designated Broker Sirva Relocation Designated Broker Graebel Relocation Designated Broker Realtor for over 25 years on the North Shore Over $100 Million in Lifetime Sales Testimonials “Hi Barb Thank you for all your help with our recent move.

My husband and I had a very pleasant meeting with you yesterday. We really appreciate your support although you don't know us. Thank you for coming by and giving us very earnest opinions about my houses. By hearing them from you, who is expert and professional in this field, made us more understanding and accepting. At the end we were able to tell why you are such an excellent agent! You have an open mind and well liked personality that make people feel comfortable:) Bonnie You are the very best and we brag about how lucky we were to know you both. We will not forget you and if we know people moving to your area we will always highly recommend you. ~ Lori & Larry Barb, Thank you for your time, effort & energy on selling. Thanks again, Leslie" Testimonials I wanted to write you personally to let you know what an outstanding job Barb Pepoon has done for our family. Not only is she warm, friendly, enthusiastic and extremely helpful, she is also unparalleled at her real estate knowledge. Barb sold our home in 10 days, even in this unpredictable economy. I am absolutely convinced it was due to her helping us price the home fair yet aggressive. She was very supportive every step of the way and her work didn't stop there. As I said, she sold our home after only 10 days in the market but she also had the extremely difficult task of finding us a rental home for only 3 months. This proved to be more of a challenge than any of us would have known. Again, Barb delivers! What a tremendous asset to your firm! Please let her know how much we valued all her time and help. With Warm Regards, Jason & Andra
