Barbara Morales, is an independent Realtor® with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Gallo Realty located in downtown Rehoboth Beach. Barbara spent 10 years as a Contract Specialist and negotiator at America Online (AOL) giving her the expertise to assist clients through the legal maze of purchasing real estate and the added benefit of understanding how technology has changed the way people do business. As a native of the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area who fled to the slower pace and beautiful beaches of Rehoboth Beach, Barbara specializes in helping those new to Delaware make sense of the Rehoboth Beach and surrounding resort real estate market.
Statistics show that about 96% of all Buyers start their search for real estate on the internet. After spending 10 years at AOL, Barbara is intimately familiar with the power of the internet.
