Transforming houses into unique and charming living spaces is a passion....selling them is my profession! I help clients see the value in a house when they are buying, and communicate those values when selling your home. 

I am committed to helping my clients navigate the entire process. Whether it involves helping facilitate an estate sale,  lining up movers, staging the interior of the home, freshening up the exterior, or coordinating repairs, I am experienced and resourceful in making the moving process as seamless as possible . 

I am a lifelong resident of Louisville and extremely involved and committed to our community...Glenview Garden Club, Kilgore Garden Tour, Home of the Innocents, The Olmsted Parks Conservancy Board, Mint Jubilee, Derby Divas Board, Norton Healthcare, USTennis Association, and River City Tennis League, Historic Locust Grove Board.  I was appointed to the Louisville Metro Neighborhood Planning College by Mayor Jerry Abramson and currently serve on the board of Trees Louisville.

I have owned a Landscape/Exterior Design Business for 25 years. Creating plans and implementing detail- oriented and multi-faceted projects has helped me build a valuable and successful business model. I listen to my clients needs, formulate a plan with attention to detail and stay in constant communication until the process has successfully closed.

I would consider it a privilege to work with you as you enter the process of buying or selling your home.

See what Barbie's clients have to say:

"Listing our home with Barbie Tafel was the best thing we could have done.  The "buying season" was drawing to a close and we found ourselves with the prospect of owning two homes and all of the anxiety that entails.  Enter Barbie!  She worked tirelessly on our behalf from the get-go.  She was positive, reassuring and had a remarkable calming effect during the process.  Our home sold quickly and close to our asking price.  During the process, she had become a close personal friend (and adviser on matters of buying, selling, moving, decorating and landscaping). We could not recommend her more highly."
