She worked the oil and gas industry in the late 80’s and early 90’s preparing auto-cad drawings and designing oil and gas skids for manufacturing. When this industry headed on a downhill slope, she partnered in a medical supply business in 1992. Thus was the beginning of her self-employment ventures.

She has garnered valuable experience over the years and is a hardworking person with a commitment to making clients and customers happy.

Barbara Clayton

I began my Real Estate career in 1985 in Jacksonville, TX.  A native Texan, growing up in Pasadena, TX, a graduate of Pasadena High School.  Attending Tyler Junior College, to complete my real estate classes in 1984, receiving my authorization from TREC to transact real estate business in the State of Texas in 1985.

A good Broker is the basis for a successful and rewarding career in real estate.  I have been blessed with only the best.  Love them all.

I am a past member of the Cherokee County Board of Realtors, Greater Tyler Association of Realtors, and Houston Association of Realtors. I am currently a member of the South Central Board of Realtors. These memberships offer me access to the available multiple listing services thru these state boards.

I have been an active full time Real Estate Agent for the State of Texas since 1985 to current 2016.  My work experience includes listing and selling properties in the categories of: residential, farms & ranches, light commercial, large and small tracts of land, and leasing. 

I love the “small town” atmosphere; Columbus being so similar to the Piney Woods of North East Texas, where I “grew up” as a Realtor since 1985.  I believe in fairness, integrity and honesty.  I want to treat my clients as I would like to be treated myself. I try to live my daily life to include the Code of Ethics that a Realtor for the beautiful State of Texas is expected to honor in this profession.
