"I would like to write about the PHENOMENAL experience we had with Barry Chefer as our realtor. Initially, I engaged Barry's help when as Chair of Anesthesiology at the University of Florida College of Medicine in Jacksonville I recruited faculty from out-of-town. The relocation experience is central to an academic chair being able to find the brightest and best faculty. I called on Barry to find housing for our new recruits; he immediately went into ‘high gear.’ Barry's attention to detail blew me away; and he is very personable and very knowledgeable. Recently, when I was recruited to be Chair of Anesthesiology for the Henry Ford Health Systems in Detroit, we engaged Barry again … this time, to list and sell our house. The whole experience with Barry was so positive. His utilization of media to promote the sale, attention to detail, and warm personality made the entire experience of selling our home painless. Thank you Barry!"

This was our first move in almost 15 years so I was very nervous about the entire process. Barry was truly a partner with us every step of the way. If I had a question after hours, he would always pick up the phone. If I needed advice on negotiating, his experience and expertise was always a HUGE help. Most of all, I don't think I've ever come across anyone with higher moral or ethical professional standards. Aside from being helpful, friendly and easy to work with, he's just a good and decent person. He always put our interests first. I would wholeheartedly recommend Barry to anyone buying or selling a home. It was fantastic experience working with Barry.

As ‘first time’ home buyers we weren’t familiar with the real estate “do’s & don’ts. We were looking for a knowledgeable & trustworthy agent who would represent and guide us. After doing a lot of research we were referred to Barry Chefer. He was the perfect fit for us. He expertly guided us throughout the entire process. Barry is so patient and kind. He answered all questions and concerns. He always went the extra mile, reviewing every detail, making sure we had a full understanding of each step. He was a true advisor and helped us avoid making mistakes. Barry is a real pro. He is also very patient, kind and extremely trustworthy. He is by far the best agent you could ask for … especially for ‘first time’ homebuyers. Barry is always on your side.

"Barry Chefer is a consummate professional. His knowledge, expertise and precise attention to detail was comforting and reassuring during an otherwise stressful home buying experience. Barry began by finding a house with the features I wanted in the location where I wanted to live. He helped me make an offer, navigate the mortgage application process and travel all the unfamiliar roads to a successful closing. Day after day, he kept on top of everything, watched out for my best interests, protected my privacy, answered a myriad of questions and kept me informed every step of the way. I couldn't have made a better choice. If you are looking to buy or sell real estate, call Barry Chefer."
"Barry Chefer did a wonderful job helping us find our dream home. I didn't know much about buying a home in the US but that didn't matter as Barry helped me through the whole process, explaining everything clearly as we went. We were living in Philadelphia when we came down to look for houses. When we found the right house, Barry helped me make the offer, do the inspections, and close, all from Philadelphia which was a great help and saved me multiple trips down here. And even while on a family vacation in Puerto Rico, Barry was in constant contact...keeping the multiple details and 'moving parts' of the sale heading smoothly toward the closing table.
Barry made everything very easy and smooth. Barry is a really great guy and I highly recommend him to anyone who wants a Realtor that will listen to what you are looking for, find you a great house, be able to explain everything clearly, simplify the home buying experience, and be a joy to work with."
...Barry did such a great job! Thank you!!"

"My wife and I have been looking to purchase a home for the past several months. From the very beginning of our search, Barry has been there for us. From assisting us through the preparatory stages, to educating us in real estate trends, he has stood by us, showing us homes and guiding us through what could have been a very complicated process. Thanks to Barry, we feel confident when making an offer that the decision we've arrived at is an informed decision and that the property we're interested in is truly of interest to us and fits our family's needs. Thanks to Barry's eternal patience and "always available' attitude, when things pick up pace, he too picks up pace; and keeps everything on track, inspiring confidence in him and demonstrating that he's there for us, the buyer, until the end. Thank you Barry for your time and energy... On the road to Atlanta, vacationing with your family... wherever you are, you have been so patient and helpful; and always available to help us. Thank you so much for your dedicated customer service."

"Thank you Barry! You played an intricate role in selling my property. I have purchased and sold many properties in the past and have dealt with many Realtors but working with You seemed to 'flow' quite well right from the start, even though we hadn't even met yet. Actually, we conducted negotiations over the phone and didn't meet face-to-face until after you sealed the deal! It was absolutely refreshing working with you. Also, it was a real pleasure working with everyone within your organization. If you are a buyer or a seller...Barry is the man! "
Neptune Beach, Florida
"From our first conversation with Barry, we knew we were in great hands. Finding a place to live in Jacksonville while we were still living in New York seemed quite challenging. However, Barry really listened and took a personal interest in finding us a lovely home for our family. The word impossible didn't exist for Barry. He went above and beyond the call of duty by taking photos of the property and being our intermediary with the home owner, as we were unable to come in from New York and see the house before our move. Barry was a true pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend him to anyone!"

He was always reachable and available whenever we had a question; and was very good at explaining things to us each step of the way. Barry is very reliable, very courteous and attentive ... We enthusiastically recommend Barry Chefer as our Realtor! "

"From the beginning to the end of our home sale, Barry was there to "hold our hands" and guide us on the right path of selling our home during these trying times of value defaltion. Barry was an integral part of our selling, in addition to bringing a buyer who was very patient with all the paperwork involved in a short sale! Barry made everything very easy and smooth. Barry is extremely experienced in his profession...and I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants a Realtor that will sit with you, listen to what you are looking for, sell your home, or to find you a great home!

"Trust, knowledge, expertise and professionalism are the qualities that describe Barry Chefer and the reasons for it truly being a pleasure to have worked with Barry on my recent real estate purchase.As a repeat customer, Barry again exceeded my expectations with sound advice and ensured that I always received timely updates as to progress. Without a doubt, I will use Barry the next time as well ! "

"Barry did a phenomenal job marketing our home. He knew exactly what needed to be done and wasted no time taking the steps to get it to market in a timely fashion, which really proved to be essential during this period of heightened local market activity. The professional photographer he hired was quick and efficient; and made great photos for the online marketing as well as a nice postcard mailer that Barry sent out to all the homes in the nearby area.
As a neighbor, Barry had a special insight to the benefits of our home's location, as well as an unmatched presence for showings, inspections, and the all-important appraisal. He truly knew our home inside and out and was able to answer agent and buyer questions with confidence. He was very flexible with his time and made a real effort to make things happen when it was most convenient for us. The personal attention and follow-up we received from Barry was markedly different from our previous experience with other realtors. His attention to detail every step of the way really helped put us at ease at what can be such a stressful time. It also helped make things flow much more efficiently as we went through the inspection and appraisal and helped us address issues before they caused problems.
I've already recommended Barry to several friends and neighbors. His work speaks for itself: We had a nearly full price contract in hand less than two weeks after placing the house on the marlet."
Sarah & Jeff Clarke
"Barry was a terrific realtor through the entire process of our home purchase. He knows the Jacksonville area and individual neighborhoods such as the one we wanted. He is in tune with the market and kept us always updated on new and existing opportunities. Barry's complete command of every situation and reassuring communications made us ever-confident during the search, negotiations and purchase. His tactful communications with the selling side ensured that all of our needs were met while satisfying all parties.
Barry Chefer is a one-of-a kind realtor who displays exceptional knowledge, ability, and care for his clients throughout."
