Barry Thomas


Living Bowen is more than a lifestyle. I've learned this first hand while enjoying a wonderful life here for the past 7 years. We knew this was a place we could call home, be part of a community, and live amongst nature with easy access to Vancouver.

As an award winning, licensed REALTOR®, I am keen to assist in launching your Living Bowen experience. Picking you up at the ferry and providing a tour of the Island is just the beginning of the journey in securing your Bowen Island home.

Moving on to the next chapter of your life? I have assisted many longtime Bowen Island residents sell their beloved properties with careful consideration.

My proven track record on Bowen Island coupled with my extensive business experience in sales, strategic account management, and contract negotiation, positions me as an ideal agent to support you in one of the most important actions of your life.

Your needs, requirements and client experience will be supported by my commitment to professionalism, trust and integrity.

client testimonials

"We first met Barry Thomas at an open house in our neighbourhood many years ago. From that time on, we observed Barry’s Living Bowen materials and his innovative marketing approach to selling homes. When it came time for us to sell our property, Barry was the first person we called. He gave us sage advice and a sound market assessment. Barry prepared an awesome marketing video of our home including photos and drone footage. Once listed, our house sold quickly. Barry guided us through the process with confidence and with constant communication. We highly recommend Barry for your real estate needs, he is kind, considerate and professional; you would be in excellent hands."

September 2018 - Bruce & Lynda

"Barry came highly recommended from a former long-time Bowen resident whose property he sold in October 2014. From our very first meeting, we felt immediately at ease and confident in our choice to list our Bowen home with him. He was faultless in his professionalism and responsiveness, and demonstrated great patience and resilience dealing with an initial offer that ultimately fell through, before skilfully closing the sale of our house. He remained irrepressibly optimistic, even when we didn't feel that way sometimes! There are many agents on Bowen to sell or buy a house with, but few that display the strategic market sense, or attentiveness and commitment to their clients that Barry does."

August 2018 - Susanne & Simon Bates

"If you're looking to buy a home on Bowen, Barry is your best choice. He came highly recommended to us and we highly recommend him to you. Our experience of buying our home was much better than we ever imagined. Barry was really attentive to what we were looking for, helped us consider things we had not considered and was an absolute pleasure being around. He has an intimate knowledge of all things Bowen and he did an amazing job negotiating on our behalf!"
