Red Barn Realty welcomes many different kinds of buyers from First Time Homebuyers and Transplants, to Retirees looking for their “last” home. We go above and beyond to help our buyers achieve their goals. The home buying process is complicated and can be frustrating. It’s important to have a knowledgeable professional to guide you through and to be an effective advocate and negotiator to protect your needs and goals. Even experienced buyers have questions. Our agents will guide the newbie home-buyer to the battle-seasoned vet, through the process.
If you are thinking about buying now or in the future and would like more information, feel free to call or email to find out more. We can set you up with a client portal which gives you direct access to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) that agents use. This will both let you see what is truly available as well as give you instant notification when a listing matching your self-designed criteria hits the market.

Supporting the communities where I live and work has always been an important part of my life. I have been involved in non-profit organizations since my high school days (longer ago than I care to count at this point). As an adult, a significant part of my career has been serving on the boards and staff of various local non-profits. Currently I am honored to serve as the Secretary on the Board of Directors for the Arts Alliance of Washtenaw County as well as serving on the Community Involvement Committee for the Ann Arbor Area Board of Realtors®.
As the owner of a Real Estate Brokerage serving the Ypsilanti Area Community, I am committed to giving back and sharing the brokerage’s success with the organizations that are an integral part of what makes this such a great place to live and work!
Red Barn Realty is proud to be a supporter the organizations listed below. Our community is much more vibrant, strong, and connected by the existence of these organizations.
Merrill is an amazing person, inside and out. She is who you want on your side of you are buying or selling a home. She really loves what she does and it shows in her work, her attention to detail and her commitment to the customer. She knows and lives in the area and she is part of the community, and she can easily promote communities because of her involvement.Laurie Kollar / Ypsilanti
Merrill was referred to us by a family friend and after only 1 short meet-n-greet, we knew she was the realtor that we were looking for. She is very knowledgeable. Not only is she an excellent realtor but she has great interior decorating skills. She staged our house for open houses and showings. The house looked great!! She was also very creative in making sure that our house listing didn't get stale. She went above and beyond. I can't speak highly enough of her knowledge, skills and overall professionalism. If you want to sell or buy a house...Merrill is the lady!!Tasha Frye / Ypsilanti
After more than a year of house search working with many realtors, we can very confidently say that Merrill is the most knowledgeable, dedicated, and reliable Realtor® we have met. Being a first-time house buyer, we had lots of questions and Merrill took her time to explain everything in detail. She arranged for us to see all the houses we were interested in. And, one time, when a house on our list was not available for viewing, she showed us a different house she found, which became our first home. We needed to close on the house as quickly as possible and she worked tirelessly to make that happen. Merrill is the reason we found a house that exceeded our expectations while staying within our budget!Saurev Shrestha / Ypsilanti
We loved working with Merrill. She's smart, very knowledgeable about local real estate, and a joy to work with!Emily Drennen / Ypsilanti
