Trying to keep up with Barbara Wells isn’t easy. She talks and walks a mile a minute, and she likes to be busy. And that goes a long way in explaining how she’s won pretty much every real estate award there is to be won. Barbara is currently the top Prudential agent in Connecticut, and she’s won the Chairman’s Circle Diamond Award for 10 years in a row. That puts her in 10th place out of the 68,000 Prudential Realtors in the country. In everyday language that means that Barbara Wells has sold a lot of houses during her 23 years as a Greenwich realtor.

Finding the secret to Barbara’s bountiful energy isn’t difficult. “I like to cook,” she says. “I’m into health and nutrition.” She’s also a big believer in integrated medicine. A few years back Barbara discovered that adding Ph-based nutritional supplements to her diet and keeping herself alkaline made her feel energetic and prevented common ailments.

Integrated medicine focuses on healing the whole body, and that includes the mind. And Barbara certainly keeps hers busy. “I’m a history buff,” she says. “I love visiting historic houses and museums, and I collect antiques.” Her interest in history includes studying genealogy, but "only for myself."

In the 25 years she’s lived in Greenwich, Barbara, her husband and three children have lived through a whopping 11 renovations. Her current home is a 1950s colonial that she ripped apart and put back together. This firsthand knowledge of the construction business gives her an edge when she’s working with buyers building custom homes or with builders selling new construction.

Barbara Wells doesn’t show signs of slowing down any time soon. When she’s not in her office or at an open house or volunteering in the schools, you're just as likely to find her volunteering at St. Vincent’s Hospital or running a benefit for The Sunshine Kids, Prudential’s favorite charity.
