My name is Barbara Carstensen and I was born to travel. Before real estate I spent a large part of my career negotiating intellectual film and video rights agreements in Europe and Japan. Mostly for special interest films, i.e. travel, sports, comedy, car racing, opera, and similar genre. I spent many years traveling to wonderful places and meeting with people from around the globe.

I moved to San Luis Obispo in 1985 with my family and business partner where we ran a successful business for many years. What a pleasure to have so many memorable life experiences in travel, closing deals, making friends, meeting interesting and often famous people.

After a brief semi-retirement. I earned my real estate license in June of 2015 and became a full-time REALTOR®. I soon got my first listing and sold my first homes. I’ve received many thank you cards, texts, and gifts from thoughtful and joyful clients that I represented to a successful close of escrow.

My fiancé and I were married this summer and I have a wonderful daughter from a previous marriage, who is happily married, mom to my grandson, and has a career she enjoys. I am blessed with great friends and family.

I look forward to representing you on your journey to accomplish your goals in the challenging world of real estate!
