I've worked with 7 realtors in my life and none have been as exceptional as Barry. He is that rare real estate gem: knowledgable, analytical, savvy, tireless - AND caring, kind and empathetic, with a sense of humor to boot. He is simply the Greatest.

My experience with Barry was outstanding! Thoughtful preparation of the property for sale including interior and exterior contractor arrangements and interior staging. House sold quickly at a price over my expectation, very smooth escrow. Will continue to use his services in the future -- thanks Barry!
Here's what Barry's clients say about him...
"I have 15 years of professional experience in international public relations and film production, yet Barry Gray, as my real estate agent, has enriched my own understanding and appreciation for a process that - just like in my own field - involves a group of individuals wanting to concur on a deal. He's by far the most brilliant realtor I've ever came across, providing me with perfectly detailed information and advise as well as the confidence I needed in order to commit to a home. His sensible and strategic approach to the real-estate marketplace, his extremely rich knowledge of Los Angeles as well as his passion for architecture make of Barry Gray an incomparably successful shopping partner for anybody novice or already experience with the exciting yet challenging process of buying or selling property. Plus, Barry is a lot of fun and has great humor ... which is a huge plus for me personally who's always looking to make each experience in life as enjoyable as possible. By all means, I highly recommend Barry Gray. He's the best of the best."

“About you I can only say how happy I am that I met you and know you now and will always. Thank you so much for your insights, your wonderfully subtle ways of saying, 'Hey Suzanne and Don, don’t do that, do this, or try this. It might work better.' You should have been a doctor, your bedside manner impeccable. But realtors really need that…for people like me. Thanks for all you have done.”
Don and Suzanne Dunaway
“Both our sale and our subsequent purchase were very dependent on clockwork timing -- which Barry made happen with the skill of a surgeon. And he did it with an unwavering dedication to fairness for all parties He’s a rare gem!”
Rebecca and Hugh, Sellers
"Barry is the perfect partner when you navigate the emotional
experience of buying or selling a house. He's calm, fair, honest and
straightforward. He negotiates with integrity and with a direct
approach to the truth. He truly wants his client to be happy and
satisfied and will take as much time as required to make sure you are
in the perfect house. I have worked with a lot of agents over the
years and can recommend Barry strongly and without hesitation."
David Moreton (seller)
"Last summer, when my wife and I were looking for our first home, we were lucky enough to have had Barry recommended to us. He isn't only a hard working, knowledgable and dedicated real estate agent, but he is also one of the friendliest and caring people you will ever meet. Now, typing this review from the comfort of my DREAM home that he helped us find, I can't imagine going through the intense process of buying a house (with a first child born 3 days for our offer being accepted!) with anyone else.
Here is a small example of how great Barry is. The previous owner stripped the kitchen of all appliances, including the stove. Barry, having seen our vintage stove that we loved when he came to visit our apartment, offered us his own stove... for free. And then payed for the handyman to deliver and install the stove, as well as payed for al the parts he needed!
Ultimately I feel like we are the ones who will always owe Barry a debt of gratitude for everything he did for us. You are the best Barry! Thank you."
