About Me

As a CENTURY 21 New Millennium REALTOR®, I am dedicated to providing you with the highest quality service possible. I have been a resident of the Spotsylvania, Fredericksburg area for the past 22 years. In that time, I have seen many changes to the local communities, lots of new shopping centers, new hospitals, new communities, new transportation facilities and many local tourist attractions.

I have been a REALTOR® for the past 15 years. I am a full-service REALTOR® and have knowledge and experience assisting home buyers and sellers with different types of transactions. I have successfully handled listing and selling of rural properties, single family homes in communities, town-homes, active adult communities, waterfront and water view homes at Lake Anna, condos, lot and land sales, and I have also successfully handled transactions involving purchasing and selling short sales. My experience covers rental properties as well; I assist clients and customers looking for rental homes and I also assist homeowners who want to rent their homes.

Since I am local to the area, I am available to service the communities of Fredericksburg, Stafford, Spotsylvania, Caroline, King George, Orange, Louisa, Lake Anna and Mineral areas.

Prior to becoming a REALTOR®, I worked in the retail business with Safeway Food Stores, where I retired after working with them for 30 years. During my employment with Safeway, I held a department head management position for 18 years, and the remainder of my time I spent working in two other departments within the Safeway store. As a member of the management team, I was responsible for organization, marketing and sales of products and other duties within the store. I was also responsible for delegating specific tasks to other employees that were in the department that I managed.

I have learned to implement the skills learned and used in my previous job — management, marketing and research — to aid me in properly assisting homeowners who are looking to market their homes for sale. My experience working with people has provided me the ability to listen to and meet people’s needs and expectations.

My personal knowledge of the local real estate market is combined with the power of the CENTURY 21 brand — the most recognized name in real estate today. I look forward to the opportunity of working with you!

Review by
DB & Caroline County, VA
Barbara was excellent! She would answer our questions even when we call/text her during non-office hours and even on the weekends. I knew both my wife and myself had asked her several questions repeatedly but she was very patient with us!

We would absolutely recommended Barbara Cornwell as a realtor you can count on and trust. She was very knowledgeable an d went the extra mile to explain things in detail when we had questions or concerns. As first time home buyers my wife and I really needed someone to be patient with us in the home search process. In the end we got a home above our expectations, even in this very competitive housing market. Thank You so much Barbara for making our homeownership dream come true!

I grew up with Barbara's daughter and knew she would have my best interest in mind. If Barbara didn't have the answer t o a question, she worked her magic to get it as quickly as possible. Being a first time home buyer, Barbara was so helpful explain every step along the way clearly. I felt like I was always Barbara's #1 priority. Every phone call was answered. Every text and email was replyed to right away.

Barbara Cornwell is an excellent agent. She is very personable along with thorough attention to detail and a network of resources to get things done quickly and efficiently. She was so very helpful in getting the deal done with me on the opposite side of the country. Can’t say enough about her expertise and personality. It was easy to give Barbara excellent marks in all these areas. I thoroughly enjoyed working with her and trusted her knowledge, judgment and advice fully.

Barbara is an amazing realtor. Even know she doesn’t live in the area we bought she knew the information she needed to o. She helped in all the ways we expected. No matter the time she was just a text or call away and answered always. Never got her voicemail.

Barbara was great! Very friendly and helpful. She understood our needs in a home and found houses that would be most sui table for us. We were closing during the pandemic and she was very reassuring when it came to our questions and uncertainty during that time.

Barbara is very knowledgeable of the local area. She has gone the extra mile and then some. Made us feel right at home . Took all the appropriate steps/actions to address any and all the problems, concerns and issues that arose during our search and purchase of a home. She just didn’t stop upon closing but has helped and followed up with two problems that had not been resolved when we had our walk through. Her concern for our satisfaction with our purchase went well beyond what we expected. I believe we made a friend. Barbara is very professional and as I mentioned previously, nothing is too much or too hard for her. She is always willing to go the extra mile for her clients. Barbara is very knowledgeable when it comes to selling houses. She is constantly in contact with her clients letting them know what is going on every step in the process of the purchase of a house, from beginning through Closing. We had a few issues at Closing that had not been resolved, and Barbara called us to see if the work had been completed. She even offered to be at the house when the workmen were there if we couldn’t be there. Now, that is going beyond the call of duty!

I have used Barbara Cornwell as my realtor not just buying one home, but two. I would not hesitate having her for a thir d. One being a foreclosure, the other a short sale. Her knowledge of navigating through the many twists and turns that come with those more complex home sales is very impressive and it put me at ease through the whole process knowing I had her in my corner. Barbara really went above and beyond to make sure I understood information, processes, and provided reassurance when I needed it. I appreciate her attention to detail, honesty, and just being an all around good person who cares about you as an individual. Time of day never mattered to her. if I had a question or concern she was there for me. I have, and will continue to reccomend her to friends and family purchasing or selling a home.

Drew Addington, Spotsylvania
We were new to the area and Barbara was very helpful in explaining the areas, costs, pros and cons of all the areas we l ooked at. She worked very hard at finding us just the right property and securing a builder. Throughout the build process, she kept in contact and worked as our translator with the builder when we weren't all speaking the same language. She was easy to talk to and work with and is clearly knowledgeable about the area, sales trends, and the real estate process in general. Highly recommend her!

Denise Limato, Rhoadesville
Barbara was absolutely a pleasure to work with! She got us out to see the house the day we asked about it and helped us with all the paperwork and setting up inspections. It really made our sale flow smoothly and quickly with her help Barbara was so wonderful to work with! She stayed on top of everything and made sure we were aware of any appointments and documents that needed signing. She was there for us every step of the way! I would recommend anyone to go to Barbara! She just made our home buying experience easy and really went above and beyond to help us out. She’s very knowledgeable and always kept us informed of any changes or information we needed to know. It was a pleasure working with her. We liked her so much we chose her to help us sell our 2nd home. Just a real down to earth genuine woman who loves her job and it definitely shows.

Barbara Cornwell is a professional from start to finish. Once I decide to sell I received an immediate response to my re quest for assistance. This is the second time I worked with Barbara and she made the process from beginning to end so quick and easy. She got to work right away and was very confident in the listing price. My home went under contract in just 4 weeks and sold quickly! Barbara is the game changer when it comes to the knowledge of real estate.
Review by
Pat Bell Spotsylvania GA
Barbara kept us informed when a contract on a home we were interested in fell through. We never were without the informa tion we needed, and we needed to communicate to the seller, Barbara was immediate in contacting them. She made solid, sound recommendations. Her knowledge of the neighborhood were spot-on. If any agent is to be recommended to serve both seller and buyer, Barbara's diplomacy should earn her "first chair" priority. She is an expert in the nuances of real estate law. Way to go, Barbara.

Barbara Cornwell was our realtor when we first moved to Fredericksburg and were looking for a rental home. She was great to work with then so we knew when it was time to purchase a home that we wanted to work with Barbara again. She is extremely knowledgeable of the local area, professional, friendly, and was so patient with us during our home search. Buying a first home is overwhelming, but from our first meeting where we discussed our needs/wants to closing on our home, Barbara was with us every step of the way and guided us through the process.
Review by
Fredericksburg, VA
Barbara was very knowledgeable, approachable, personable, very patient, and always available for us anytime of the day, weekends and evenings. She answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. The whole process looked simple and less stressful than it is really is because of her and we are extremely grateful of her. As a first time home buyer,we were not familiar with the terminology and the process of buying and financing a home. Right away Barbara was incredibly friendly and took time to sit down with us, explain to us,determine what would be a good fit for us and the financing options we have in Virginia, which we ended up looking at, using and greatly appreciate her advice and support. The whole team were very helpful and available for us for any questions. Thank you Barbara Cornwell and the whole Century 21 Millennium team. You are awesome!!

John and Peruth Zirondomu, Fredericksburg VA.
She was the only person I dealt with during the sales process and there was no need to talk to anyone else. I apprecia te the excellent way she handled the entire sales experience for me. Barbara Cornwell was prompt in responding to any questions and in delivering required documents. She was very professional, courteous, and a caring individual whom I would highly recommend to others. I liked that I could call her at any time and she was always responsive. She worked very hard through multiple contracts to get my house sold. Could not have found anyone better.

This home buying process would not have been possible if we had not meet Barbara Cornwell, She was professional and know ledgeable and had a lot of patience with my wife and I during this process.We didn't have access to internet at the start of this, so Barbara offered to assist in anyway possible, she met us and brought a laptop to show us homes and helped us in gathering needed paperwork for the lender. Barbara went above and beyond what we expected a Realtor would do, she was always available when we needed her or had a question about the process. night or day! Barbara was there to assist and answer any questions that my wife and I had. Her service was SUPER, EXCELLENT!! Barbara made this process go so smooth, we both are still in shock that we are now Homeowners of a brand new home! We could not have done this without Barbara Cornwell helping us! A BIG THANK YOU GOES TO BARBARA AND CENTURY 21NEW MILLENNIUM!! and also to the Bay County Settlement, the company and staff was great, very efficient and explained everything during the closing. I have told everyone and will keep telling as many people as I can if they need to buy or sell a house to call, Barbara Cornwell, she is a Great Real Estate Agent!!

Kenneth A Woolen
The biggest factor was that Barbara promptly returned my call, was very knowledgeable of the area, went out of her way t o meet with me on my schedule to view properties and assisted me in weighing the pros and cons of the properties until We found the property to meet my needs. I could have not asked for a better person to guide me through all the process. Barbara went above and beyond when she went to the local courthouse/zoning with me to get the right information to assist in moving my manufactured home to the property I bought. I can't say enough about Barbara and her dedication to helping her clients. I am really happy that I found her because she made what I would call a stressful search for property so easy for me with her support and knowledge of zoning and property requirements. There is no doubt that I would recommend Barbara to others and definitely will call on Barbara for any future purchases or sales. I had such a positive experience with her that I have requested her assistance in finding a Century 21 in Columbia SC to help me sell or rent my home there. I just can't say enough about Barbara, her customer service and dedication to Century 21 values.

Pat Bell, North Chesterfield VA and soon to be a new Spotsylvania VA resident
I one day decided to buy a home. Was driving down the road and saw a sign that said century 21 new millennium and the ag ent was Barbra Cornwell. I said this is the best place to start. So I called Barbra and asked her how to go about it. She was very helpful and answered all my question. When I first talked to her what stood out most was her personality. Friendly, helpful, professional. When we started looking for homes I was very picky. I explained to her what I was looking for and she did everything in her power to show me what I wanted. I not only found a excellent realitor but also made a friend for life. I am so glad she was there for me through this whole process. I recommend for anyone to give her a try and I can say they will have a good experience with Barbara.

Kamrul Ahsan, Woodbridge VA
Initially, Barbara assisted me when I was searching for rental property 3 years ago. She was knowledgeable about the lo cation ( I was not familiar at all with the location. I was being re-located for a job situation). She provided me with essential information to help me make the decision regarding the location from home to job. Now, when preparing to purchase a home, I thought of Barbara. After meeting with Barbara and working with her, I feel as if I have made a friend. We communicated almost every day while searching for the home. After locating it, she walked me through the process of making the offer on the home. When I had a question, Barbara was quick to respond and get me accurate information. I have been pleased without question in this home-buying experience. Barbara was instrumental in getting the correct information regarding the purchase of the home. She directed me through the inspections that are needed for Foreclosed properties and made valuable recommendations on needed inspections to be sure that I was safe and those decisions not only help me through the process of purchasing, but throughout the rest of my ownership of the home. Barbara directed me to local post offices, horse stables, swimming pools and other essential hotspots. Her attention to follow up on my concerns and her attention to every detail of the home I was searching for was more than excellent.
