Get to Know The Crossroad Associates Team
Why have a team? Barbara Hendrickson and Jim Quinn thought about it and realized that with having a large referral client base it would be best to pair their expertise to form a strong dependable group to be available at all times for the betterment of their clients and future growth.
Together, Barbara and Jim are both Brokers, and licensed in VA and DC. Barbara, a native Washingtonian enjoys her career and sharing her vast knowledge of the Metro area. Her passion for Real Estate goes far beyond just being a Broker. She has served on NVAR’s Ethics committee for three years and served two years as Board member at NVAR. Barbara’s credentials include her (GRI) Graduate of Real Estate Institute, (ABR), Accredited Buyers Representative, (CSP) Certified New Home Sales Professional and her 2005 Lifetime Top Producer award. She received the designation of (CDPE) Certified Distressed Property Expert when the housing market took a downturn. Most recently she and Jim obtained the designation of (SRES) Seniors Real Estate Specialist, to help the vast number of baby boomers who are now and in the future retiring and downsizing. In addition to having an active real estate team Barbara teaches Contract Classes for the state of Virginia. This enables agents to meet their continuing educational licensing requirements.
Barbara believes if you’re going to do something then do it right. We have experienced, legal experts available when needed and excellent title companies to make the client’s transaction a smooth experience. When asked what she likes best about the business, she eagerly reply’s, ‘negotiating’, “knowing the contract as well as I do, I always want the offer to be in my client’s favor.”
Jim balances the partnership with his valuable appraisal and banking background. Being an ex-appraiser, during the downturn when many listing agents had issues with getting homes to appraise Jim was able to have 100% record with our listings meeting sales price. Jim has been in Real Estate since 1976 working in both the residential and commercial arena. Together, Barbara and Jim are both uniquely qualified to provide the best service and knowledge available to clients and pride themselves in creating a marketing strategy specifically designed to the special characteristics of each property.
Other team members include Buyer’s agents, Nina Butera and Dwayne Traylor, specializing in residential properties throughout Northern Virginia. Nina also serves as our operations manager and functions as contact and support to the clients and team members. Our team is all about creating a comfort level with clients so they understand we are working together with the necessary skills needed to complete a seamless transaction whether buying or selling. Enjoy your visit with us, we look forward to working with you.
