As a first generation Italian from the DePaul area in Chicago, Barry's strong work ethic began when he was very young. While growing up, his family constantly struggled to make ends meet. Therefore, he began working at the young age of 10. His first jobs consisted of delivering groceries and flowers- which got him through paying his own grammar and high school tuition payments. After high school, he was lucky enough to land a job at a local printing company. He remained a printer for 11 years- when one day he decided to make a serious change in his career path.
Not knowing where his future was headed, in 1972 he was offered a real estate sales position by an owner of Ben Friend Realty. With virtually no experience he became the #1 agent in Northwest Chicago in his second year on the job. During his third year in the industry, he met Robert J. McMullen, owner of McMullen Realtors [established in 1945.] Barry partnered with Robert and ran the small 3-agent office and grew it to 7 agents in a few short years- until Mr. McMullen retired in 1980- at which time Barry remained the sole owner of the company. At this time, Barry along with General Manager John Guest, grew the company into 15 agents and moved to larger quarters. It was in 1983 when Barry bought a CENTURY 21® franchise.
And the rest is history. Over the course of 30 years, Barry built up CENTURY 21 McMullen Real Estate, Inc. to what it is today: the #1 Century 21® Office in the state of Illinois- and in the top 25 Century 21®Offices in the county- with billions of dollars in lifetime sales. Today the company has over 150 licensed agents, an experienced Management Team and a full-service support staff that is housed in a beautiful, state-of-the-art, 16,000sq.ft. building that Barry himself developed and rightfully named "Tuscany Terrace"- to honor where his parents were from in Italy. The company prides itself on its customer-centric business model- where superior customer service lies at the root of its business. And, with the help of Barry's youngest daughter Angela, the company continues to make advances in marketing and technology- keeping it not only a prime choice for agents to establish a career at- but a fierce competitor in today's market.
My greatest interest and my goal is to help you accomplish your goal!
