It's rare to meet a sincere professional broker like Barry. His photos are true to the real home. He really listens to what you need, very fast response, clear communication and punctual.

I'm very happy with the apartment I sent my application to. It's the best deal I've ever find in my budget. Best location, huge 1BR and affordable.

Highly recommend to work with him :)

I had an apartment I am very happy with within less than 24 hours of contacting Barry. He is professional, friendly, extremely reliable and great to work with. He returns calls/emails/texts very quickly, which made life really easy for me when I was stressed out about finding the right place to live and did not have a lot of time. Barry was helpful literally until the day of the move. If you are looking for an apartment in Astoria or Sunnyside, you should definitely contact Barry. You will have a pleasant experience and save a lot of time.

Very helpful and honest. He's honest about a location, and a safe location especially for women living by themselves. From the moment I inquired I received a speedy and courteous response, set up several showings and fell in love with the first apartment. He was very understanding that it would be too far for me to travel (for signing, inspecting, etc) and is more than accommodating to work out alternatives. Definitely someone I would recommend and will use in the future.

Barry is the nicest realtor I have ever met. He got back to my initial inquiry the same night, we had a brief conversation on the phone and arranged to see the location the next day. While I did not rent an apartment from Barry, the apartment I ultimately did sign to was a listing from a realtor friend of his (who contacted him while Barry and I were looking at apartments). Barry was kind enough to drive me to the location and helped out with the initial meeting with the landlord, despite it not being his deal. He was always upfront, friendly and provided a lot of insight into the Astoria real estate market while I was searching. A welcomed friend to help guide you through the stressful world of NYC apartment renting.

Barry showed me several apartments within the locations I was interested in and price ranges I could afford. Although I went with a different property, Barry service was top notch and I highly recommend him if you're interested in finding an apartment and want a realtor that will meet your needs.

Barry was an absolute pleasure to work with. He is patient, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Although we did not have the opportunity to view apartments together (I ended up going with another apartment with another broker), he was extremely sensitive to my apartment needs and followed up frequently to check up on my apartment search and informed me of any listings that matched what I was looking for. Barry is a rare gem in the real estate business. Consider yourself lucky if you work with him!

Absolutely loved working with Barry. He showed us a couple apartments. Each apartment was great and in our price range. He was by far the easiest broker to communicate with and was always there to help and answer our questions and concerns. Barry is friendly and professional and someone who you would want to work with on a day to day basis. I highly recommend Barry to anyone looking for apartments in the NYC area. I know that if for some reason we ever need to leave our current apartment (that he got us), we will be calling Barry to help us find our next! Happy and thankful to meet such a great broker in NYC. Thanks again Barry!

Barry responded to me immediately and spent a lot of time driving me around Queens, showing me not just apartments but also neighborhoods I might be interested in. He is professional, responsive, and a pleasure to spend time with, happily working with whatever requirements I have. WORK WITH BARRY!!!

Barry is the most responsible agent I've come across in nyc. He is very responsive to emails and text messages. He found apartments which actually met my requirements. Each one is very nice, even though I didn't take it in the end because of the roommate issue, I really appreaciate his efforts. I will recommend Barry if you are trying to find apartments in Astoria.

I contacted Barry while looking for an apartment in Astoria and he was so helpful and proactive in trying to find something for me and my husband. He followed up with us and confirmed appointments (which we found was a pretty rare thing) and was just super friendly and professional. We didn't end up renting an apartment with Barry, but I would highly recommend working with him.

I'm leaving a review to thank Barry. He worked very hard to try to find us the perfect apartment and was friendly and courteous the entire time. It was great working with him and I really appreciate his professionalism and deep knowledge of the Queens area, its landlords, and apartment buildings.

Barry was excellent and transparent with us the whole time. The unit we had planned to see got rented to someone else on the day of our showing, but Barry called me ahead of time to let me know before we met up. He was always very straightforward and showed me 2 great apartments in the area I was interested in. He advocated for me with the landlord and got the place for us at a price that was in our range. I highly recommend working with Barry.

Although I didn't end up looking at any apartments through Barry, I wanted to give him a shoutout for his stellar communication skills. It's always surprising to encounter someone like this when undertaking the task of apartment-hunting in NYC--which is typically cutthroat and unpleasant.

Barry was very straightforward and friendly on the phone, and willing to help me out. He was also personable and remained so even when I called to tell him that I had found a unit with another broker. So kudos to Barry--he's recommended and I'll definitely consider him for future moves.

Can't recommend Barry enough. I moved to the city and needed to find a place within 10 days (not an easy task in NYC). Any time I had a question, Barry was available. More than that, he answered all the questions a transplant like myself had no idea to ask and always kept me posted on new apartments with regular emails and phone calls. He really cares about the people he works with and making sure they find a great apartment within their budget, and that's just what happened. I'll definitely work with him again when I'm looking for another place.

Barry is amazing! Whether you are house hunting or looking for qualified tenants,  I would strongly recommend Barry!

My initial contact with Barry was in November 2013. I had a dog and was turned down by a lot buildings which weren't pet friendly. Despite of this, Barry showed me three really nice apartments with reasonable price range in a single night, very impressive.

Fast forward to January 2015, I got a new job and had to move out of state. Having a hard time finding sublet, I contacted Barry for help. He was extremely helpful, he advertised the apartment within hours of my inquiry, screened multiple tenants and got the apartment rented out within a week!

It was of great pleasure working with Barry. He was professional, attention to detail,  and super helpful. I would recommend him to any friends who are apt hunting in Queens.

After an exhausting search through Manhattan and Brooklyn apartments, I decided to expand my search to Queens. I had previously seen several nice looking listings under Barry's name, so decided to reach out to him, and I'm glad I did. He showed me 3 different wonderful apartments that were great deals, and gave me a plethora of tips to help me with both my search, and the application process.

Over the next 24 hours after we parted ways, I grappled with whether or not Queens was for me. Ultimately I decided I really wanted to find a place in Manhattan, but I'm still glad that I contacted Barry, as it was clear that if there was one broker to show me the best options in Queens, he was the man for the job.

Complicated, perplexing,  rough,  crappy, exhausting, a series of unfortunate events! What do all of these words/phrases have in common? Well, they often describe the home hunting process.

Fortunately, searching for a home with Barry was the complete opposite. Whereas,  Barry is in a commitment to ensuring that his clients find a home of their choice with as little trouble as possible. He made the entire process painless and showed me several options to ensure I got a great deal. He was very honest throughout the process, telling me what would work and what wouldn’t. He was available at all times to answer any questions or concerns. He advocated for me to ensure that all worked in my favor. Most importantly, he was not pushy and was flexible.

While searching for apartments I came across several realtors. However, Barry was by far the most professional and skilled in the field. After looking at several apartments Barry assisted me with the application process. Following completion of the application Barry ensured I received a response within 24 hours. I found a lovely apartment in Sunnyside Queens and signed a lease within one week of contacting Barry.

I would certainly recommend him to anyone looking for a smooth and enjoyable search for a home. Barry is certainly a star! Contact him! You will not be disappointed.

I contacted Barry about an apartment in Astoria and although it had gone earlier that morning, Barry contacted to ask me what I was looking for and to suggest some places I might be interested in. The following afternoon, despite not having anything available within my price range, Barry took time out of his own day to drive me around Astoria, Sunnyside and Woodside to look at comparable places, and also to show me the neighbourhood. Barry was full of useful and honest real estate information and gave me many tips, and shared with me his energetic personality, and while I did not eventually rent from him I would highly recommend him to anyone looking in the Astoria/Sunnyside area. Barry is professional, personable and hard working, and I was very grateful for his expertise and affability.

I initially found Barry through a posting on Craig'slist while looking for an apartment with my girlfriend. Before meeting Barry a lot of brokers were giving us a hard time because I'm a graduate student and my girlfriend is Canadian.

Barry's professionalism and warmth was in stark contrast to these other brokers. We discussed our situation at length over the phone and strategized the best ways to build my case for prospective landlords.

My girlfriend and I saw two apartments with Barry, and at no point did we feel pressured, gamed, or belittled. While we ultimately ended up in a different apartment, our experience was so positive that I felt compelled to write this review anyway.

Thank you again!

Barry quickly responded to my inquiry and arranged an appointment to explore the listings. He also went beyond that and set up showings for places that may be of interest to myself. He had all the information on top of his head and was fair and honest. I highly recommend Barry and thank him for his time.

I didn't see any apartments with him - I had already found another apartment by the time he got back to me.
