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 needs was the key.)
Barb obtained her brokers licence in 2003 and is currently works at RE/MAX Finest Realty Inc. Brokerage, in Kingston, Ontario.
Barb has served on the Kingston Area Real Estate Board as a director for the past five years and is now president for 2018. Her passion is technology, finding and understanding tools to help fellow members learn and use the latest programs/apps to help their buyers and sellers 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.
