Charleston Real Estate Professional
A dedicated business professional with expertise in the real estate field, the knowledge, intellect, inter-personal skills, and mindset to succeed in an ever increasingly complex and competitive marketplace...... I am someone who built a career on being of service to others.
Expertise and Service Matter.
An accomplished Real Estate Broker with over 40 years experience, Barbara Rose (remembered by some as Barbara Callaway) has expertise in cultivating and successfully managing financially and logistically complex high-dollar real estate transactions in New Jersey, North Carolina, and South Carolina. A native of Princeton, NJ, Barbara has enjoyed an incredibly successful career in real estate, having worked with Callaway Henderson Sotheby's International Realty in her hometown, HM Properties in Charlotte, NC, and now Daniel Ravenel Sotheby's International Realty in Charleston, SC. Barbara's passion for her hometown led to her support of McCarter Theater in Princeton, Princeton University Art Museum, and D&R Greenway Land Trust, and Friends of Princeton Open Space. Additionally, she was an active Trustee of The Princeton Day School Alumni Board for six years and continues as her Class Agent. Barbara's accolades and accomplishments are as diverse as her clientele. While in Princeton, Barbara's real estate success earned her the prestigious New Jersey Circle of Excellence Award at the Silver Level. She holds a certification as a Permaculture Designer from the Yestermorrow Design and Build School in Vermont. This designation means Barbara can counsel clients on how to create sustainable, eco- sensitive, economically viable environments. She holds the National Association of Realtors GREEN Designation, as well, and served as President of the Board of Directors of the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Jersey (NOFA-NJ), helping to establish the first Beginning Farmer Program in the Northeast. Currently, Barbara serves as President of the Board of Trustees of the homeowner association for the Downtown Charleston condominium complex known as 33 Calhoun.
Having fallen in love with the Lowcountry decades ago when she lived in Beaufort, SC, Barbara migrated to Charleston in 2002 as a real estate broker and became the Marketing and Sales Director for The Albemarle Riverview Condominiums in West Ashley. Her sales acumen speaks for itself as she single-handedly pre-sold 51% of the 65 units in the first year of the project. She lived on Kiawah Island for 3 years before purchasing in Downtown Charleston.
Barbara is guided by her core values: honesty, integrity, professionalism and a strong work ethic. She is known in the real estate community for her ability to get the job done; facilitating cooperation and teamwork among buyers, sellers, attorneys, agents and lenders. After work, Barbara enjoys golfing, hiking, biking, cooking and gardening in the Lowcountry and is the proud mother of 3 grown children, a granddaughter, and 2 grandsons.
Barbara Rose was integral in our house hunting experience in Charleston. We moved from out of state, and her knowledge and expertise of the area was an asset while we navigated the market and handled the deal from afar. Barbara was extremely professional and was dedicated to supporting us from beginning to end and even beyond. We are so grateful to Barbara for helping us find our perfect home and for making it such a smooth and enjoyable transition.J. Wahl
We worked with Barbara on the purchase of our downtown condo at Calhoun Street. She did an excellent job working through the contract terms and keeping us informed throughout the closing process. Barbara knows the downtown market as both a realtor and a resident and would recommend her for your real estate needs on the peninsula.A. Blom
Barbara Rose was our real estate agent in Charleston handling the sale of our condominium. 2020 started off with a bright outlook for real estate sales in Charleston until COVID hit in February. Most real estate sales came to a dead stop. Barbara remained enthusiastic and motivated to sell the condo despite the downturn for everyone. She handled everything in a professional manner with frequent open houses, updated photos, virtual design, attending all showings, answering any questions for prospective buyers providing them with up to date information on the Charleston real estate market. More than anything, Barbara kept me focused on the sale. I highly recommend Barbara without hesitation and deeply appreciate all her efforts.S. Storick
