Life is all about balance. While this is a concept I may have learned on the yoga mat, it definitely comes in handy in the world of real estate. It’s a critical component in successfully negotiating a deal, keeping the various players in balance, balancing expectations, and balancing personalities. The best transactions are of the “win-win” variety, where everyone walks away satisfied at the end of the day, a delicate balance to achieve indeed.
Hi, my name is Gladys Barbosa and I am a Realtor®, a mother, a teacher of yoga, a lover of good food & wine, an enthusiastic fan of ALL kinds of music, an eclectic antique collector, and fascinated with houses, the stories they tell, the stories they create. I am each of these things and all of them are balanced together.
I have lived on both coasts from New York and Miami to the San Francisco Bay area. Never straying too many miles from the lure of the ocean, sandy beaches, and the sound of the rolling waves. So, it should come as no surprise that I came to settle, and sell real estate, in the Ocean State. I mean, how perfect is that?
My career in real estate began in 2004 but is actually the culmination of twenty years of marketing and PR experience, from the arenas of corporate banking to international yacht racing to community fundraising, all played out against a backdrop of buying and selling antiques. Throughout the years I also bought and sold houses, for myself to live in, for investment, and fell in love with the process. With the thrill of the hunt, the art of the deal, the endless possibilities and potential each property posed, I was hooked.
So now I make my living, buying and selling properties for you. While every deal is different, my approach remains the same. Always keep your eye on the end goal, never lose your sense of humor, treat others as you would want to be treated, and if you can keep it all in balance – absolutely anything is possible.
I look forward to meeting and working together with you on the sale or purchase of your next property. until then, Namaste!
We wanted to send a quick note to tell you how wonderful Gladys Barbosa was to work with while we were looking for condos in Newport. Right from the start, she was energetic, followed up quickly on any questions we had, and was a pleasure to work with. We chose a townhouse that we loved almost immediately and put a bid on it, but for some reason (many reasons) the sale did not come together easily. We se...

It is with highest regard that we write this letter on behalf of our home buying experience with Gladys Barbosa. We first met Gladys when we were viewing a home in the neighborhood of our dreams in South Kingstown. While that home wasn’t right for us, Gladys had a clear understanding of what we were looking for and we felt a connection with her. She continued to show us homes and, sure enough, she was ab...

We owe you a tremendous belated but no less heartfelt thank you. While it was a busy summer moving in we just kept marveling over and over again at how much we love our new home and how wonderful you were in making it all happen for us. Never having sold a house before, and with very little experience in purchasing one you, from the moment we met put us at ease and made us feel comfortable with every asp...
