Barry was amazing to work with. He was referred to me by my agent for two different deals. Barry took his time explaining every detail of every possible loan that I was eligible for. He answered every phone call and even called me on a weekly basis to share the progress of their loan. Barry is a hardworking and dedicated loan officer! I would highly recommend him to all my friends.

Barry specializes in 203K loans. If you don't what these are - learn about them as quickly as you can. Barry is just incredible. He helped us with our 203K loan to buy and gut renovate our home in 2011. It took us nearly 2 years to find a place and a lot of our deals fell through but Barry was very patient and ran through the numbers for us on every house that we wanted to make an offer on. His follow-up and dilligence is fantastic and he went above and beyond his responsibilities that allowed us to close on a fairly complicated process in less than 3 months. I have since recommended him to two other friends and he has come through for both of them.
