"It is with pleasure that we can recommend Barry Thomas as our Realtor of choice on Bowen Island. We met Barry a few years back at an open house in our neighbourhood and we had already been seeing his exceptional marketing materials for other homes on Bowen. When it came time for us to sell our house, Barry was the first one we called. This was the start of an excellent relationship which led to our sale closing within two months of being listed with Barry. One of the key factors in selling a home for the best price possible and as quickly as possible is setting an asking price that is acceptable to the seller and attractive to prospective buyers. Barry is a master at this and gave us a range of what he thought our house would sell for based on multiple criteria. Our sale ended up being smack in the middle of that range. Another key factor is how the house is staged for showing. Again, Barry gave us excellent advice and the showings produced multiple offers. And finally, our sale process took some twists and turns that Barry helped us navigate with professionalism and solid advice. We would certainly use Barry again and have no hesitation in recommending Barry to anyone wishing to buy or sell on Bowen."

"Professional, patient and personable are characteristics demonstrated by Barry Thomas. Yes there are many well qualified realtors on Bowen but we are very pleased to have decided to work with Barry. He exhibited such patience and understanding when meeting with us - two very nervous home owners. After listing, it was very obvious he was well attuned to the Bowen property market and potential purchasers. Keeping in constant communication he demonstrated his skills by easing our way through the process while remaining a true professional. We are indebted to Barry for making the transition into the next phase of our lives as smooth as possible. We have no hesitation in recommending Barry to others who are considering selling or purchasing a property."
