PAST CLIENTS OF BARRY'S TELL THE STORY BEST !



 

 


SATISFIED NOT ONCE BUT TWICE!


We have used Barry to sell twice and buy twice in Lynn Valley. Before listing our homes, he gave us honest advice about what steps to take to improve on the price we could obtain for our home. He gave us realistic advice about the market, and a price range he thought the home would sell for. We followed his advice to determine the listing price and both times sold at or very near the listing price.
When buying our homes, Barry took the time to show us a variety of homes in our price range and location, to give us a good feel for the market. He kept an eye on what homes had been on the market for a long time and may be ripe for a discount.There were a few times we considered making an offer on homes we liked. He could have made a quick and easy sale on us, but he conviced us the houses had problems that would make it unsuitable long term for us. He was right. Both homes were perfect for us.

 HIGH SCHOOL COUNSELLOR SENDS PRAISES!


 Barry Cummings sold our parents' family home of 50 plus years on behalf of my three siblings and me. Throughout the process, Barry was considerate, respectful, and kept us well informed. He prepared a cohesive marketing plan that first involved assessing a competitive listing price and then marketing the home for a two-week duration before entertaining multiple offers. The end result was a sale above asking and within the desired timeframe. I would highly recommend Barry as an agent, for either buying or selling, due to his attention to details, integrity, professionalism, thoughfulness, and good-natured personality that keeps him so approachable throughout the process. 

Thanks Barry!

DOCTOR KNOWS BEST!

 

 

To Whom It May Concern:

 

This is an unsolicited letter of recommendation for Mr. Barry Cummings. When my wife and I decided to buy a larger house last year, we contacted Barry. I had known Barry for many years and knew him to have a wide range of knowledge of Vancouver real estate.

 

 

We were immediately impressed by how he approached the issue of finding us a new house. As we were very particular about the type of house we wanted, he suggested we work towards finding that house first. I know many realtors prefer you to list your own house first, and it was a pleasure to see how Barry used his talents to serve our needs.

 

 

After starting with a general idea of the type of house we wanted, the areas we were looking at, and price, Barry suggested several open houses for viewing. As we went to open houses and gave him feed back on what we had liked and disliked about them, he used this information to refine the search. We were not in a rush, so several months went by. Barry kept in touch with us, talking about new listings as they became available. His knowledge of the different neighbourhoods in the areas we were looking at was extensive. In the meantime, he had inspected our house and given us a list of updates and repairs that should be done, and we were working on these.

 

 

One day Barry called us to say he was viewing a new home and that we should come right over! He had never asked us to do this before, so we viewed the house right away. The house was exactly what we were looking for. He knew the builder and the listing agent, and with this knowledge helped us frame the offer in such a way that we got it below asking price, before the first open house. This was during a very competitive market for this type of house. We love our new house, and we know we never would have found it without Barry.

 

Barry also quickly listed our old house, and sold it within three weeks for exactly the price he predicted it would get. We were very impressed with how quickly he organized the listing, and how much effort he put into the marketing of our house - each advertisement was different, he organized open houses and viewings, and gave us weekly feedback on everything he was doing. Throughout the whole process Barry was in constant contact with us.

 

 

Barry is a true professional, and it was a pleasure to deal with him. I recommend him most highly to anyone seeking to buy or sell real estate on the North Shore or anywhere in Vancouver. I would be happy to speak to you personally about Barry at any time.

TEACHERS CAN LEARN TOO!

 

To Whom It May Concern:

 

Buying or selling a home is an important moment in one's life and it is paramount that the salesperson one chooses be trustmorthy, knowledgeable and most importantly honest. Barry Cummings fulfilled each one of these expectations and made the buying and selling of our first home a positive and enjoyable experience.

 

As first time home buyers, my wife and I appreciated Barry's "no pressure" sales approach and his reassurance that in time we would find a property that was right for us. In addition, he was extremely knowledgable about the North Shore real estate market and he did a wonderful job explaining strata regulations and their function.

 

As first time home sellers, we did not hesitate to contact Barry again and we were very satified with the job he did for us. Once again he took the time to explain the steps that would be involved with selling a home, he did a lot of research in regards to the value of our home and made us feel confident that what we were asking was appropriate. In the end , he worked diligently to sell our home quikly with terms and a price that we were very pleased with.

 

We would confidently recommend Barry Cummings to anyone wanting to list or purchase a property.

 

 

Sincerely

BARRY'S HAIRSTYLIST ENJOYS HIS SERVICE!!



Hi Barry,

Please see below for the testimonial that I wrote for your site:
I have personally known Barry for 20 years. Through his commitment to volunteer work, his friends and his family, I have seen first hand how honest, reliable and dedicated he is.
Seven years ago, he did a wonderful job selling my daughter and son in law's apartment. He was able to generate multiple offers and sell for over asking. He then successfully found them a perfect first time home in a great location, where they are still living and are raising their young children.
Nine months ago, Barry listed my mother's apartment in New Westminster. He did extensive research to ensure a fair and reasonable listing price. He was very patient and thoughtful during this challenging time of transition. There were other apartments for sale but Barry's hardwork and knowledge helped to complete the sale of my mother's apartment quickly.

I can't say enough about Barry's kindness, expertise and professionalism. I highly recommend him as a real estate coach.
