Life and style with Scarlett Barber

Realtor leans towards classic fashion

I love that every day is different—it literally is,” says Scarlett as she describes what fires her up the most about her work in real estate. “I love the people, the challenge, the fast-paced environment and helping people succeed in their real estate dreams. All of that makes me happy.”

Asked what daily practice has led to her success, she answers, “Not leaving anything to the last minute. When I am given a task I finish it as quickly as possible, providing the highest quality the first time. Any other way, you’re working twice as hard and delaying the success for your clients.

“Life doesn’t stop moving,” Scarlett reflects when asked what life lessons she has learned. “It will always keep moving so I have kept moving with it. Right out of university, I kept moving towards opportunities for growth—whether it was for work, for further education, or to gain the experience that I have today. Not waiting around has helped me to provide the best for my clients.”

Although Scarlett’s style is a mix and changes for the occasion, she leans towards classic pieces combined with current trends. “I like timeless pieces to start with and then I like to mix in fashion that works with my body type, even if the trends are heading in another direction. I always like to add a twist to spice up any outfit just to pull it all together.”
