Barry is a wonderful real estate agent who was very patient, personable, and helpful throughout the process. I highly recommend him to anyone in the local area looking for a home. He has a great depth of knowledge regarding homes and what to look for, and was always very flexible with scheduling viewings and working around our schedule. He is very professional and personally invested in finding good homes for those he works with. Thank you for all the help Barry, we love our home!!
Barry was extremely helpful during the entire experience of buying our first home. He went out of his way to answer all of our questions, negotiated for various repairs the house needed, and worked around our crazy schedules with ease. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a new home!
Very helpful every step of the way for our first home purchase. I would recommend Barry to anyone I know looking to buy a home. And hope to have him in the future. Best agent I've met so far. Thank you Barry!!
Barry was absolutely fantastic to work with. This was my first experience buying a home and he was so patient with me. He made the process smooth and helped me with all of my concerns. He was also very personable and friendly, we definitely shared some laughs.
In a word, Barry is awesome. He's a straight-shooter, git 'er done kind of guy who did a great job managing my (very high) expectations. Most of all, he told me and my sister (aka The New Yorkers) exactly what we needed to do to sell our parents' house ... then he gave us access to all of his resources (including himself!) as we were 2 hours away ... and we had an offer within two weeks of having it on the market (AFTER HAVING BEEN UNABLE TO SELL IT FOR SIX MONTHS WITH ANOTHER AGENT). Oh the offer was 15% higher than anything the other agent was able to come up with. Finally, Barry guided us (and talked us down from the ledge) through a complicated contingency sell. I cannot sing his praises any louder. Thanks, Barry — and the entire crew at Cliff Lewis. You made this chapter as seamless and easy as possible. And you got us a good price for our house. All we could ask for!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Barry!
He kept me calm and focused when dealing with a difficult seller and lending company. He kept things moving along quickly as he knew I had a tight timeline to buy, close, and move.
I would highly recommend Barry!
Barry wants to make sure you find that house you want no matter how long it takes. He provides expert knowledge on potential costs for home maintenance to consider and will tell you upfront if he believes the house is worth it or not.he would rather advise you not buy a house that is no good and spend more time looking for the house that is right for you. He is a true Ally.
Awesome realtor! Barry made the process of buying my first home very easy. I searched for a year for the perfect house and Barry was always available, patient and never gave up until I finally found one. Very knowledgeable and always quick to answer my emails or texts. I would differently recommend Barry to anyone searching for a home!
Barry was a terrific asset and "go-to" person helping us in numerous ways with our recent real estate purchase. We now own a wonderful house in a wonderful neighborhood and Barry was indispensable in facilitating the process. We recommend him highly.
Barry is a very pleasant realtor very helpful. We looked for over a year seen many house in a year and he trudged right along. Any question asked he answered truthfully. Very helpful through the process. Lended expertize on fees and cost of repairs on certain houses.
Barry and Kim did a great job in locating an appropriate property for my needs. The negotiation process was smooth and closing went well. I would recommend Barry and Kim to anyone looking for a great team!
Barry was absolutely amazing!! He was always willing to show us properties no matter the location. He was absolutely wonderful and we would highly recommend him to anyone attempting to buy or sell a home.
The best real estate professional we have enjoyed working with. Barry was knowledgeable and was prompt in responding to all our questions. He was patient and advised us all the way as we were first time home buyers. He would drive all the way from one end to show us places as per our schedule. He was very thorough and well versed in all the processes and made our home buying experience a fantastic one. He was able to help us talk to our lenders and also the seller and manage expectations . We bought our first home through Barry and we highly recommend him .
We were so lucky to find Barry as our realtor. Not only was he completely able to understand our desires in a new home, he went above and beyond to help us find one in an area best suited to our needs. He has an excellent understanding of construction so was able to point out potential problems in houses we viewed and areas we would need to discuss with the sellers prior to any final discussion. This really set him apart from other realtors we've worked with. Our work schedules were difficult and Barry worked around it, I'm sure to his inconvenience, to respond to us at evening hours and show us houses in the early evening as well. As the time to closure approached, he advised and provided us with excellent references to make sure we didn't hit any problems with mortgages, inspections, etc. I'd definitely use him again and recommend him to anyone I know.
When my wife and I first decided to look my daughter in law had been receiving listings from Zillow. When we decided to actively look I pressed the button to chat with an agent. Barry responded and that was the beginning of a great relationship.
We had not purchased a home in 26 years and we were anxious to find a home close to our grandkids. Barry asked a few questions about our needs and wants and we got started. We saw two homes and they were ok but we were looking for something better. After a house that had been contracted was now back on the market. We contacted Barry and he immediately made an appointment. After seeing the house we liked it and didn’t want to lose it. We considered offering full price but he said offer less so we had some negotiating room. He was right and we offered slightl less and got the house.
There was a number of documents to sign and he had the ability to do it via email. From that point on Barry was always a phone call away and everytime I emailed Barry I had an answer no later than the next morning.
We felt very safe that Barry had our best interests in mind, not just a sale of a home. We would not hesitate one minute to recommend Barry. We would contact Barry if we were ever in the market again. Everything in this sale went very smooth.
BARRY IS THE BEST!
He was very patient and professional throughout the home buying process.
Being first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions, Barry was always willing to answer.
Barry was a reliable, knowledgeable, organized realtor. He was prompt for all of our appointments and always completed "prep work" ahead of time. He adjusted our portal requirements throughout our search to meet our changing needs and ideas. He was always willing to meet with us and answer our questions. He was very straightforward throughout the entire home buying process. We never felt pressured to make a decision.
I would recommend Barry to everyone who is looking for a respectable, hard working realtor!!
Barry was patient with us through the whole process. He got the job done when others seemed to have failed. We would definitely use Barry again for any of our real estate needs.
Barry helped me search for and purchase my first home. He provided step by step details and made the experience for me as simple as possible. Great to work with!
Barry was AMAZING with us. We are first time home buyers and Barry walked us through step by step and kept us extremely comfortable the entire time and that can be pretty hard sometimes. He stayed in touch with us and our lender all the time to make sure everyone was on the same page. If you are choosing a realtor in the Lehigh Valley Barry should be your guy.
My husband and I worked with Eldin Karlic initially to list our rental home. Great professionalism and knowledge was displayed throughout the entire home selling process. Great marketing!! Our home sold within 2 weeks and had been on the market with another local realtor for almost 6 months prior! Our only comment/suggestion would be to please make sure that the buyer is educated completely on "buyers assist" monies that are given and that the commission is taken off the top selling number even if buyers assist is gifted. We would have to give Eldin a 5 Star rating..Barry was very courteous and professional however, we only dealt with him at closing.
Barry helped us find a wonderful home. He was patient and understanding, especially as we were first-time homebuyers and not sure what to expect. He often reminded us that he was there to make sure we were happy. After we put down a downpayment on a home that had an less-than-perfect inspection, Barry did all he could to make sure that repairs were taken care of before settlement. Could not recommend him more!
Best man to work with in the lehigh valley, helped me see just about every house in our town till I found the right one, twice first house would not compromise price after a low appraisal, and had plenty of advise throughout the whole process to get me the best house for me at the right price.
Barry made my first home purchase a piece of cake. He took the time to get to know what I liked and was never pushy. He negotiated pricing and other factors brilliantly. I had low expectations going into a very dried up market with only undesirables left over. He helped me find the diamond in the rough. If you are looking for a down to earth and honest straight forward approach to your home buying he is your guy!
