client testimonials

"Barry is an exceptional guide and advisor throughout the buying process. He's the most professional and thorough realtor we've worked with, and his calm, friendly style helps take the stress out of the situation. As our realtor, he was on top of every aspect of the purchase, and was always ready and willing to help whenever a question came up. His expertise, deep knowledge of the market and his network of home services contacts were also invaluable."

" Barry was a pleasure to work with and was incredibly responsive at all times. He quickly understood what kind of home we were searching for and was able to help us find the perfect place pretty much right away. He also helped us through the offer, negotiation and closing process, answering all of our questions along the way. We would gladly work with him again and would happily refer him to any of our friends"

Our experience of buying our home was much better than we ever imagined. Barry was really attentive to what we were looking for, helped us consider things we had not considered and was an absolute pleasure being around. He has an intimate knowledge of all things Bowen and he did an amazing job negotiating on our behalf!"
