As the "Top Producer" of Rick Obey Yacht Sales nationwide, I would love the opportunity to work with you and help you acquire a boat that meets your specific needs and wants. I'm committed to providing exceptional service to my clients, their family and their friends. Barbara has had a love affair with all things related to water her whole life. Born and raised in Southern California, she began boating at a very young age and owned her first boat at the age of eight. Barbara was the first female Executive General Manager hired by a Fortune 500 Automotive Company generating sales of over $200M annually while managing over 200 associates. It seems only natural after a Twenty plus year career in the automotive industry, the Yachting industry allows her to perfectly blend her passion for boating with her extensive experience in sales, client relations, customer service, negotiating, marketing, finance and strategic planning. She understands that buying a boat is not just about buying a boat it’s about investing in a lifestyle.
"Whether I’m power boating, sailing, surfing or walking my dog on the beach, I love being on or near the water. Being a yacht broker gives me the opportunity to marry my experience handling tens of thousands of transactions with helping people who want to embrace the boating lifestyle by assisting them with either selling or buying their next boat. I value the trust they've extended to me so I will work tenaciously on their behalf to help them acquire the right yacht and get the best possible deal while ensuring them a smooth transaction. With no disrespect to my competition, I know that what I consistently do on behalf of my clients, distinguishes me from the mediocre. I'm confident that I am the right person with the right strategy (and track record) to help them".
I look forward to working with you!
