Barry's Friend in Realty brand came about by one main thought...The Golden Rule!  His intention and driving principle is to treat you, the client, the way he would want to be treated if he was the client and you were the real estate agent.  

It is the above approach that has helped him rise to the top 1% in his field over the last 14 years in the business.  In 2012, Barry was awarded the agent of the year for his company. Barry was ranked 3rd in the country by Better Homes and Gardens in 2013 as a result of selling 125 homes that year.  Further, he was just awarded 5th place in the 2014 Real Trends Top Real Estate Agent award for the entire state of Virginia. 

Barry consistently sells several houses a week and this experience in real estate gives him a competitive edge over most other agents in the area.  Combine this experience with an extensive array of training designations and his clients always win.  Some of the training designations he has been awarded are as follows: Certified Distressed Property Expert, E(Marketing)-Pro, Broker Pricing Opinion Resource, Accredited Buyer Representative, and the HAFA designation. 

 Even with the sales, training, and awards, Barry simply wants you to enjoy the real estate process and have you win in the end.  He consistently tells his clients that he wants them to be empowered by his educating them so that THEY become the market expert. This approach never fails as the client drives the ship and he guides them along the way. Barry's laid back approach of educating his clients regularly results in them sending their friends and family to him because his previous clients know he will put them first. 

Barry SINCERELY want's to be, "Your Friend in the Business!"  You can find out more on his website at

I am a lifelong resident of Hampton Roads and received my real estate license in 2004. Prior to entering into the field of real estate, I received my B.S. and Master’s degrees in education from Old Dominion University and worked as an elementary educator in VA Beach and Chesapeake for many years. I continue to be an educator---now an educator of real estate “teaching” and guiding sellers and buyers step by step through successful transactions. I have a proven track record of complete and exceptional service, which earned me the honor of “Hampton Roads Rookie of the Year” after just one year in the business and continuous “Circle of Excellence” awards thereafter.

Not only am I a dedicated Realtor, I am a dedicated wife, and a dedicated mother to three children ages 26, 22, and 18 and two step-children ages 18 and 16. Our children currently are at different stages in their lives:  two are beginning their careers, two are attending ODU and ECU and one is attending VA Beach City Public Schools.

My top priority as a realtor is to provide A+ Service to my clients ----dedication, honesty, and integrity so that I may become their Realtor for Life. It would be my honor to provide A+ Service to you.  I look forward to speaking with you soon.
