FOCUS ON THE CLIENT
Barbara Carter, was awarded the 2015 Quality Service Pinnacle Producer Award, she greatly values herself in always providing 5-star service to her clients at all times.

Being a small town native, Barbara has been farming her town even before purchasing SmartTargeting. Before SmartTargeting, Barbara was spending most of her time preparing and sending out mailer to homeowners in her farm; an extremely time consuming task. This forced her to limit her time with her clients, which was not her ideal solution.
“I want to ensure that my clients feel that they are the MOST important part of the transaction. I work hard to ensure I am always providing 5-star service for my clients.”
