Barb Guiden, Broker & President KAREA
Barb Guiden started her real estate career at the end of 1989, just as the recession hit. She learned very quickly that to make it in the real estate world, you had to work long hours and work hard listening to people’s need. Barb has served on the Kingston Area Real Estate Board as a director for the past five years and is now president for 2018. Barb is keen on technology, finding and understanding tools, latest programs and applications to help fellow realtors and in turn buyers and sellers to make informed decisions.
In 2010, Barb took up running and since has run two marathons, seven 1/2 marathons, two 30k races, and many 5k, 8k, 10k and 15k races. Barb knows it takes planning and dedication to get to the finish line. She brings the same strategies to her business and to the Kingston and Area Real Estate Board. (KAREA)
When not running or working, Barb enjoys playing in her music room, recording and creating music. But most of all, she loves spending time with her wonderful family.
Realtor, jewelry artist, outdoor enthusiast, lover of animals, wine, original art and live jazz. Paulanne moved back to Kingston in 2016 from Athens, Greece where she spent five years teaching English as a Second Language, saving hundreds of stray cats as a volunteer with Nine Lives Greece, and travelling through the Mediterranean islands.
After University, it was clear that she had a natural talent for sales but was also a people person. This has carried her through a successful career in real estate in the 90’s, before running her own car dealership and auto detailing business for 11 years. In 2010, she did what most just dream about and left to experience another continent and another culture. Paulanne is an involved member of her community, and enjoys connecting with old and new friends in historic downtown Kingston.
She and her colleague Barb Guiden are passionate about their profession and have recently teamed up as Team Kingston Realty. Their aim is to ensure a successful and stress-free transition for their sellers, and ensure their buyers locate the perfect home for their next phase of life. They promise to even throw in a bit of fun!
