Treasure Island, Florida


Barb Adams is happy to call Isle of Palms, in Treasure Island, home. After receiving BA degrees in both English and Mass Communications (specializing in photojournalism) from USF, Barb made history at the Palm Beach Post as its first woman staff photographer. She especially enjoyed shooting sports, like Miami Dolphins’ football, and immersing herself in in-depth stories, like an award-winning project on a maximum-security women’s prison. After winning numerous regional and national awards, Barb moved to Louisville, Kentucky, where she continued her newspaper work for The Courier-Journal. That is where Barb met and married her husband, Jim. Again, Barb continued winning national awards not only for her photographs but for her picture editing and page layout and design as well. As Barb’s and Jim’s family grew to include three beautiful children, Barb decided to open her own boutique photo studio, specializing in children and newborns, in the family’s home, an historic, 1840s state-designated Kentucky landmark. Her extraordinary portrait work adorns the walls of many of Louisville’s finest homes. During their 26 years in their antebellum home, Barb and Jim completed a total and historically true renovation, providing an excellent hands-on education in home construction, design, and landscaping. With the kids now grown and living on their own, Barb was thrilled with the decision to move back “home” to the Gulf Coast. Her business skills and ability to establish rapport with clients, combined with her creative eye and artistic energy, made transitioning to the real estate market a natural. Barb has established a strong presence in the luxury beach and waterfront market. Her many happy clients’ ringing endorsements testify to her ability to achieve their goals. Barb’s relentless attention to detail is a hallmark of her success. Every home has a story to tell and Barb is a firm believer in showing every listing personally. Knowing as much about the home as the owner is essential to converting a looker into a buyer. Relying on lockboxes is lazy! In her off time, Barb loves riding her bike in the mornings, and walking on the beach during our beautiful sunsets. She is an active volunteer on Isle of Palms projects and serves as board member and Vice-President of the Isle of Palms Civic Association. Barb also volunteers for many Treasure Island events, including Sanding Ovations, the Chili Cook Off benefit for the fire department, Treasure Island Appreciation Day and many other annual events. Barb’s Toys for Tots drive every December has received certificates of recognition for the outstanding results of her push for donations. Whether buying or selling a home, she will also deliver outstanding results for you!
