Barbara had had many accomplishments during her illustrious career.
1983- Developed her own local real estate newspaper called the Real Estate Review. It was printed in Niagara Falls Canada and delivered every other week. This helped develop a relationship between all of the local real estate agencies in our local community. The front and back pages were rotated between the companies equally ensuring that no one company would dominate the paper. This paper ceased publication on 1989 when the affordable printer was lost.
1990- Barbara Anne Kivi was fortunate enough to serve as the Board President of the NFABOR.
