Ask Barbara Mirza what she loves about her job and the answer is simple: "Absolutely everything!" And it sure shows. Barbara is a founding member of the Sedona Luxury Real Estate Professionals (SLREP), a group of top luxury REALTORS® in beautiful red rock country. Her affiliation with this organization ensures that she has first access to the finest properties in Sedona and surrounding areas. Frequently referred to by her peers as "motivated, experienced and ultra-reliable," Barbara's background includes over 30 years experience as a real estate agent, broker and interior designer; in fact, she owned an interior design business in Laguna Beach for several years. This native Californian, who has earned her ABR* and GRI* designations, got her start in real estate during a time in her life when she and her late husband owned a construction company and began to invest in commercial property. "I found it to be a fascinating, ever-changing field that can also be a lot of fun. Over the years, I've accumulated a wealth of related experience that enables me to help my customers and clients discover the perfect home amidst the richness of Sedona." First licensed in California in 1976 ("I still maintain a Broker's license there"), Barbara received her Arizona real estate license in 2000. A few years earlier, she purchased land in Sedona and built her home with the help of an architect and designer, an experience that has repeatedly proven beneficial to her long roster of discriminating clients. "I know exactly what they're going through and can guide them based not just on my professional background, but also my personal experience." Barbara's success is certainly due to her knowledge, professionalism, experience, integrity and attention to detail, "but it also helps that I have a good sense of humor," she says with a smile, adding "the bottom line is that my clients can always count on me." On a personal note, this dynamic real estate expert describes her two daughters, their husbands and especially her two grandchildren, as "the center of my life." She looks forward to their visits and loves to share with them the many splendors of Sedona and northern Arizona.
