About This Agent

A Georgia native and long time resident of Atlanta, Barbara is an established Realtor® with an impeccable reputation for market knowledge, professional guidance and personal exacting service.

Barbara came to real estate later in her career, but in her second year achieved Million Dollar club status in a down market, a result of her personal drive and desire to help clients navigate turbulent economic times.  While her client base is as diverse as the properties she represents, she largely works in Buckhead and in-town neighborhoods - from Inman Park to Dunwoody.

With a BA in English literature from Vanderbilt and MBA from Emory, University, Barbara gained substantial know-how in marketing and finance before joining Dorsey Alston.  She started her career in Washington DC, as a press secretary for a member of Congress; then was a lobbyist for investment banking firms. Prior to starting real estate she was head of investor relations for First Data Corp. a $6 billion global company. Not surprisingly, she knows how to get things done with a style that exudes confidence.

Barbara has a broad range of interests, including art, investing, music, and gourmet cooking.  She and her husband Frank travel extensively internationally, often biking and sailing.

Barbara has always had strong ties in the community.  She has served on the Alumnae Board of Emory University Goizueta Business School, as President of the Executive Women of Goizueta, and asTreasurer of the Gallery Condominium HOA Board.  She was president of the Atlanta Chapter of National Investor Relations Institute, on the board of Goodwill Industries, and has volunteered with St. Philips Cathedral Antiques show Tour of Homes, and the Atlanta Botanical Garden.


We will always remember the excellent experience we had with Barbara in the sale of our home. Throughout the whole experience, in the midst of the awful market conditions, we always felt confident with her, and knew that if it could be done, she was the one!

There is no finer representative of  home owners/home buyers best interest then Barbara Marxer at Dorsey Alston.  My husband and I had our home listed with another agent for several months before being introduced to Barbara. We are certain that Barbara's in depth knowledge of the market, keen eye for quick and easy changes to make our home show better, aggressive marketing program and personal involvement with everyone who visited our home are the reasons we sold our home quickly and for a very fair price in this very difficult real estate market.  Barbara's level of service is extraordinary. We are so grateful for everything Barbara did for us and would highly recommend her to anyone who values someone with a superior work ethic who produces results!
