Gary Barrett was very professional! His communication with me throughout the process was excellent. He was very attentive, went above and beyond all of my expectations.
Gary hired a professional photographer, had the house listed and showing from the moment the sign went up until 5 days later when we had our first offer, second off the next day - Gary was timely. He was helpful with online documents, always willing to work us through what I was supposed to be signing and why. Gary went the extra mile, including visits and calls to buyers agent, lender, and lawyer trying to determine why closing kept being put off. He spoke to our sellers agent to keep us from losing the house we had put a down payment on here. Gary never lost his temper and calmed me down several times. I fully believe he went above and beyond any normal agent expectations while always remaining professional and a gentleman. We are so thankful he was in our corner!
