Hey, I'm Barbara!
San Jose, California, United States · Member since June 2012

I love having visitors and I'll do everything I can to make sure you have a comfortable, pleasant stay. As my guest, I hope you will find my home to be a great place to stay in San Jose. For those guests new to Airbnb, I want to make sure your first experience is a complete success.

A little about me. After 20+ years as a software engineer, I needed a change so now I’m a real estate agent. Through real estate I’ve found that I really love meeting new people so I’m extending it by sharing my home with others.

Things I like to do: travel, hike, cook, garden, bicycle, train dogs, go to opera, ballet and the theater, and spend time with friends and family. I especially like DIY projects, on my own home and I also volunteer with Rebuilding Together. Lately I’ve been taking a class in Mandarin. One of my passions is working with rescued dogs, especially German Shepherd Dogs.

My experience with Airbnb has been fantastic! In addition to meeting lots of new people from many different cultures, I'm learning about those cultures and countries, and finding out about ethnic restaurants nearby that I've never tried. All my 100+ guests have been wonderful - I've been very lucky and thank Airbnb for their part in making my experience such a good one. Several of my guests have found permanent homes here in Silicon Valley and I love to get together with them – we even had a couple of barbecues this summer (they call themselves my Alumni Association). And several of my guests have returned to stay multiple times.

I’m looking forward to meeting you.
