A good friend recommended Barry. Not only is he knowledgeable with regards to the property market, Barry kept us up to date with current, up-coming and rapidly changing government policies. I live in Singapore and Barry helped me sell my later brother’s property in Vancouver during the tumultuous second half of 2018. Background checks, document preparations, property showings etc were conducted seamlessly. We found Barry to be proactive, trustworthy and courteous throughout the whole process. He replied promptly every time in spite of the 15 hour time difference, communicating with us via Whatsapp at our request as well as by email. We highly recommend Barry for his professional service, advice as well as competitive fees.

My husband and I highly recommend Barry as a real estate agent. Not only did he sell our home within a week at greater than the assessed value in a declining market, but Barry helped us navigate our way through in buying the perfect new home well below the original asking price. We greatly benefited from Barry’s professional knowledge and experience. Barry went above and beyond to recognize and provide us with personalized service. Barry is honest, caring, and works hard on behalf of his clients.

I’m a first time home buyer and had a very poor experience with realtors when I first began my journey to find a home. After I came across Barry’s profile, I took a chance with yet another realtor…and I’m so glad I did! He was very patient and supportive during the whole process and never made me feel rushed or pressured to do something I wasn’t comfortable with. He’s truly great at what he does and it was refreshing to feel supported by your realtor every step of the way! I’m glad that we were able to become friends out of this experience as well 🙂 I’m definitely recommending him to my family/friends!
Barry definitely earned a 5 star review. He helped make buying and selling real estate far less stressful. He helped me get a new townhouse that was well within my budget, exactly where I wanted to live. When it came to selling, Barry arranged a very successful open house that had 25 plus potential buyers. In the end, I accepted an offer close to 10% above asking price. I have recommended Barry twice now to friends looking at buying because of his knowledge and professionalism.
I received a fantastic service when I used Barry as my Realtor for both my first home purchase in Vancouver and also the purchase of my first investment unit. Barry is a likable and easy person to work with, and beneath his laid-back demeanor is a smart, strategic negotiator. He worked patiently with me while we found the right homes for me, and he secured both properties for me, for great prices, in an extremely hot and competitive market. I would not hesitate to recommend Barry to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Vancouver.
We were worried about Mom’s strata and decided to ask Barry to have a look over the documents for the complex. He told us that the numbers were not good, and it was likely that her unit was going to be faced with increased fees or special assessments very soon. He sold the unit for a high price and found her a great home only minutes from us. The unit needed some renovations, but we are very happy to have Mom closer to us in a worry free complex. Thanks Barry!
We worked with Barry in the spring of 2016 to buy a condo in the Vancouver area. It was a very hot and competitive market but Barry guided us professionally and patiently until we found one in Richmond that was the right fit for us. He always did his research before we looked at a property (the strata status and/or comparables) and when it came time to make an offer, he didn’t hesitate to advise us to jump all in on it to avoid missing out. For those reasons, we’d recommend Barry whether you’re buying or selling.

Barry was very helpful when we were looking to buy our first home. We were looking to buy in Vancouver which was not easy as we all know, however Barry made sure we stayed patient and didn't let us get in over our heads. We ended up buying for under listing price right in the heart of Vancouver in August 2016. Barry was always available to answer our questions, which we had a lot of, and we trusted he had our best interests in mind. Would recommend to friends and family!

From the first time we met Barry he treated us like family. Barry was a great help to us for being first time home buyers. He took us through all the proper steps and always answered our questions with clarity. At the end of the day we not only got a great home but just as important to us we found a friend. Thanks Barry.

Considering how hot the market is in Vancouver, I was happy when Barry was able to find me a good deal. I never felt rushed and a few times he even talked me out of placing offers on places where the strata wasn’t very healthy. It’s a hard process to navigate, but he helped me every step of the way. Thanks for your hard work!
The process was quick and painless because of your hard work Barry. In a tricky market I was happy to find a unit that was a good deal and you even managed to negotiate me an even better deal. When the seller tried to hide the depreciation report you were quick to call them out and it was in our hands so we could review it within two days. Thankfully the building was in good shape, but I would not have known without your expertise. Thanks!
My wife and I tried to sell on our own, and became frustrated with the process. We hired Barry and had a full price offer within a few days. We were impressed by his professionalism and positive, upbeat nature. Thanks Barry!
