"... I have bought and sold five homes through Barrie over the years, because I trust him."

- Ozzie Jurock, Publisher-Editor Jurock's Real Estate Insider

Understanding the stresses and strains of buying or selling a home and having gone through the experience with hundreds of clients over the years, Barrie does everything he can to alleviate the pressure. "I try to insulate my clients by taking away as much of the worry and stress as I can," he says.

He stays in touch with his clients, communicating with each one at least once a week. He advises, but never pushes. "I use a low-key approach", says Barrie. "I try to guide with experience and knowledge."

Barrie and his wife Shelley, along with their two children Tara, who has graduated from the University of Toronto Law School, and Nick, who has graduated from the University of Victoria, are actively involved in community sports and music.
