Michael Barber

DRE #01893586



Michael Barber, owner of GrandView Properties, has been involved in buying, selling and renting property, homes and vacant land since 1996 and became a Real Estate Broker in 2011.

In 2001 he purchased two vacant lots and then begun the arduous task of building a custom home from the ground up. It took about 4-5 years to complete the process from start to finish but was well worth the effort.

Michael was also a financial advisor for 25 years until 2019. In 2011 he joined Coldwell Banker for a few years to use the real estate education as a supplemental tool for helping his client base with their real estate needs. Now Real Estate and Property Management is his primary focus.

Michael holds a degree in Business & Financial Services from California State University, Chico.

Laura Michelle Smith

DRE #01388548



Born and raised in San Diego and a long-time resident of Carmel Valley, Laura started out 21 years ago working for a top producing agent and since then took every opportunity to learn from this incredible experience and has incorporated many of the tools and work ethics into her personal career.

Laura is dedicated and passionate about real estate and is a firm believer in delivering exceptional customer service. Clients benefit most from her confidence, negotiating skills and her exceptional experience and knowledge of the transactional documents that can be very cumbersome for most home buyers and sellers during the escrow process. She is hands on with her clients and her skills will guide you through even the most challenging situations. Laura has managed to always provide her clients with service above the rest!

My goal is to do more than just assist you in the buying or selling of your home. Moving to a new home can be a very stressful experience and I see it as my responsibility to make the experience as pleasurable as possible by providing you with all the quality and professionalism you deserve.

After working with Michael and his team, we can definitely say it was a pleasure to buy our home with him. From the first phone call to our move in day, they were a great resource for our family. Thank you!!
