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 d
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.

Thank you for visiting my webpage. I am a full time REALTOR dedicated to all of your real estate needs. My e-PRO designation has been earned through the National Association of REALTORS and is the only technology designation offered by the NAR. This designation puts me in a select gro
How does this designation help the real estate consumer?? As an e-PRO I am skilled in email and Internet communication, marketing and property searches.
Working with me a buyer can have automatic internet searches set up to see new properties in real time. As new properties hit the market an email alert is sent with a link to the property specifics.
As a sellers agent the value of an e-PRO comes from the knowledge of the best marketing via the internet for your home. Over 70% of real estate consumers start their home search on the internet on their own. If your home is marketed properly on the internet then it will get maximum exposure and attract more buyers causing the desired end result---competition by qualified buyers for your home to garner the highest possible sale price!!!!!
The real estate business is constantly changing and because of this I am committed to continuing education in my field. I have taken courses on client relocation and currently I am extending my skills with real estate appraisal courses and a general contracting course to serve my clients better.
I was the recipient of the Century 21 Agent Quality Service Award for 2002 and most recently was given the Outstanding Achievement Award for 2004 in the Oak Lawn office.
As your Realtor I pride myself on excellent communication skills. I have over 17 years of business management experience to assist with my real estate and extensive direct customer service contact during which I have honed my skills. I look forward to assisting you with any of your real estate needs.
