Hanson Quarter Horses

When we started our search for our horse ranch a couple years ago we had no question of who to ask to help us with this quest. Barbara Provence was the person for the task. We had very specific needs since we operated a training business and we had very specific “wants”.  With each property we looked at I cannot express how helpful it was to have another horseman’s eyes looking at it pointing out things that worked and things that would need to be altered. When she found us the property we now own she was spot on when she told us this one works. She was right, this property has been like something out of dream. Barbara’s experience as a horseman combined with her experience as a realtor make her a simple choice for any horse person seeking a property.


Barbara is a Realtor, Broker, equestrian and also an artist.  With her experience and creative side, she can visualize the potential of a piece of property whether it is a hobby equestrian, working ranch/barn or a home and determine whether it will meet your needs or not. She will willingly provide guidance on prepping or staging the property to make it as appealing as possible to potential buyers prior to putting it on the market.  Barbara not only sold our previous home in Huntington Beach she also played an integral part in finding just the right little mini ranch to meet my equestrian hobby needs.  And let me tell you, our new home was not setup as a functional ranch but Barbara was able to see past that and immediately called me up to tell me she found our home.  We absolutely LOVE this place and have been here almost 8 years now and we can’t imagine another place being able to meet our needs.  The husband says we will die here with our boots on!

When it came time to part with our mid-century home that my parents had purchased from the builder, Barbara took on the task. Wood floors that had been carpeted for 60 years were restored. She knew exactly what needed to be done to refresh the home for sale, while staying under our budget. Barbara received five offers the first day on the market, including a cash offer for 10k over the asking price and way over market price. Barbara was honest and ethical in every way. She made the paperwork a breeze to complete. If you are thinking of selling your home, Barbara Provence is the right person. I would use her again in a heart-beat. Isn’t that the highest recommendation someone can receive? Barbara is...simply The Best!



Barbara helped me sell my home and find another home. This was a very difficult time for me yet she was so supportive and encouraging. We sold my house for more than asking. What more can I say!!!



Simply put, Barbara was a gift to work with on both our house sale and purchase. These are two of the biggest transactions anyone does in life, and we are so grateful that we had Barbara with us every step of the way for each. Barbara's knowledge of the area, thorough research and advice on our approach for our sale helped us with getting over our asking price. She took time to ensure we understood what the required documents were about prior to our signing these, and readily advised on anything that required a more detailed or thoughtful approach. There were a number of items that came up as part of our house purchase that Barbara helped us work through, and we always felt that she truly had our best interests at heart. At no time did we feel her advice was overpowering, mechanical or a knee-jerk reaction to any situation we faced. She took time to get to know who we were as people and tailored her approach and advice accordingly. Barbara was fantastically responsive and remained readily available throughout; in fact, our evening review talks in which we strategized our approach on the latest issue or next required tasks became a staple part of our day through the almost 2 months we worked with her! The net result was that both sale and buy processes were worked through in as painless and assured way as possible, resulting in our obtaining a family house that we are excited to be in and are more than happy and proud to call our own. Barbara was instrumental with this, for which we will be eternally grateful for. We would absolutely, unequivocally and whole heartedly recommend Barbara without hesitation.



Barbara was great! I was referred to her by a friend and I wasn’t disappointed. I needed help in selling my home and I had a lot of questions about the process, which I hadn’t gone through for a very long time. A lot of things had changed. Barbara was awesome in taking the time to answer my questions and explained them very clearly. She was very helpful of explaining what I needed to do to get my home ready to be put on the market. If there wasn’t something I wasn’t quite comfortable with in getting my home ready to sell, she was very flexible and had several ideas of what could be done. When signing papers, she sat with me and went through everything so I understood what it was, and if I didn’t understand something she took the time to explain it to me. I really felt she cared about what she was doing in helping me sell my home. She was always available when I needed to talk to her. We communicated a lot by email, but if I required Barbara to explain something to me, she would always tell me to call. Everything Barbara did was truly professional and she went up and above what I expected. I highly recommend anyone looking for a realtor to sell or buy a home, to give her a call. Barbara was outstanding!



Barbara was helpful in both the purchase and sale of our home. She just doesn't stop until the job is done right! When buying our home we wanted to find a location that was big enough for our family but priced fairly for Orange County, CA. She worked hard to find the perfect home. She also educated us on the realities of first-time home buying. Her energy and expertise are only outdone by her "grit". She's someone you want on your team while purchasing or selling a home (one of the most important decisions you'll make as a family). I can't recommend Barbara more because having the right agent in your corner is priceless.


"I must take the time to thank Barbara for helping my daughter and I find a new home to rent not once but twice. One of the greatest things about working with Barbara is that she listens to what you want and need. She is open and honest and will give you all the information you need, whether it be good or bad, to make your decision. I have had nothing but great times with Barbara and oh her a lot for everything she has done for me.



"Working with Barbara was such a pleasure! She is so knowledgeable, and she took care of every detail flawlessly. Real estate transactions can be so stressful, but knowing that Barbara had everything handled took all the pressure off me, and I can honestly say I've never had a better experience. If I were looking for horse property, there's NOBODY I would trust more!"

"Thank you so much for everything you have done for us! You will be getting many referrals from us in the years to come. We will never forget the team that helped us into our very first home."


"Barbara is nothing short of great. I recently purchased my first home with Barbara's help. She made the whole process totally painless and helped guide me into a great home that exceeded my expectations. She was patient through the whole process as I changed my search criteria several times. She also recommended a lender and after closing helped me find a plumber. If your in need of a realtor choose Barbara!"


"Barbara has helped me find tenants for two rental properties. As a new landlord, I had no idea what I was doing, but Barbara made everything easy. She made sure I set rents appropriately, and did all the screening of applicants. The tenants she found have been good as gold - always pay on time, take great care of the property - but Barbara is always ready to step in and help in case things ever go wrong. There is no way I would ever consider renting (or buying/selling) real estate without Barbara!"

"Since 2005, Barbara Provence has been the manager of our triplex in Dana Point. We would like to acknowledge her abilities to handle the property and the tenants in a very effective and professional way. When we have had problems with the tenants, she has used very good judgment in making the appropriate decisions. She is always willing to help and to handle the problems that come up with the property. We would not hesitate for her to handle all our real estate investments"


"Barbara is a dedicated realtor that really understands the process and the the needs of her clients. She cares about their happiness as well as finding the right home for them. I have no problem recommending her to friends and family."


Karrie and Daren
"We want everyone to know how awesome our Realtor Barbara Provence is!

Now days you just never know how people will treat you, and where you are on their priority list. That will never be a concern if you choose to go with Barbara Provence. From day one she was attentive and caring; she knew how important it was to us to move to a specific area. Barbara stopped at nothing until we found a house in the area we loved! You would have thought once the keys were givien to us for our new house our relationship would be over. But, no, she continued to check on us and work out minor kinks. Now the best part of this was that we did not know her previously, we called a number we saw on a for sale sign, and we received the kind of service you would expect from someone you know really well. The bottom line is, if you choose Barbara Provence you are choosing the best person for the job! We will always refer anyone who needs an agent to Barbara Provence, we know she will take care of them!

Thank you for everything you are truly awesome!"


"Thank you so much for all your efforts, you are the best! I know that looking for rental properties isn't the most profitable use of your time and I really appreciate everything you have done to assist me in this stressful time. You are so wonderful...how did I get so lucky to find you? I hope to be in position to buy something in the not too distant future and I am excited to already have someone I like and trust to work with :)"


"Just a quick note to thank you for working so hard on our house! You are great! Thanks again for everything."


"You are such a neat person to provide me with such valuable information. I really value all of the information you have given me. Thank you kindly....You have been SO gracious to me and I really appreciate your kind words. I am touched by the reassurance you have given me."


"Thank you so much. You have been great! We appreciate all that you have done. We love the house! Thanks for the flowers I assume they were from you."


"Thank you so much for working with them. It's nice that people like you are willing to give young people a chance."
