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 www.FriendinRealty.com.
I have been a Realtor for 12 years, and I absolutely love what I do. I was recently featured on the popular HGTV show -- Beachfront Bargain Hunt and Home Renovation for a second time. On this show, I go through the steps of house-hunting with my buyers and help them find and choose a home of their liking near the beach.
My expertise is simply selling homes -- all shapes, sizes, areas, and price ranges. At a young age, my family moved every year from 6th grade on, so I learned to adapt quickly and adjust to never-ending change. I have moved over 50 times in my life!! How's that for experience?
Since I have moved so much in my lifetime, I can relate to the stresses my clients are facing and because of this, I always try my best to shield them from any issues by solving problems behind the scenes. I am also a strong negotiator with a feisty spirit. I am always available for my clients, but most importantly, is to laugh and have fun along the way!!
After moving all over the country -- I now call Virginia Beach home. I have lived here for 20 years, and absolutely love it. I currently live at the North End of the Oceanfront with my 15-year old son Jonah, and our dog GraySea! In our spare time, we love anything outdoors -- fishing, paddle boarding, surfing, bike riding, exercising, and eating healthy. Both my son and I are volunteers with Wave City Care and you can find us on Saturday morning's working in our local community delivering meals to the less fortunate. I also volunteer at a local nursing home in their activities department.
