Leading Ladies 2018: Barbara Carroll Doherty

Realtor, Mott And Chace Sotheby’s International Realty


A sales executive for Mott And Chace Sotheby’s International Realty in Narragansett, Barbara Carroll Doherty’s passion for real estate came from a lifetime of seeing the world. She has made Rhode Island her home for the past 38 years, now living in Narragansett, but spent her early years traveling. “My parents made a number of long distance moves, leaving Chicago in the ‘60s, landing us in Los Angeles,” Barb says. “My late husband was fortunate to have had exciting opportunities that moved us around the country and then here to beautiful Rhode Island.”

Those experiences developed her interest in real estate and the delicate transition that a family makes with these moves. Barbara holds numerous real estate designations that help clients with the complex financial decisions they will be making. “Making a difference in someone’s living situation takes skill and care,” she says. Barb prides herself in putting herself in her clients shoes and helping them to find precisely the right fit for their lifestyle and budget. Clients have written to say what a pleasure it was to work with someone who cared and had the knowledge and experience to make the transaction as hassle free as possible. “Some of my dearest, longtime friends have been clients,” she says. “I love being a Realtor, and I love how I can add something to someone’s life and make a difference for them.”
