Barri Plawker - Realtor Associate
Barri Plawker has been selling real estate in Northern Bergen County for 28 years. She is the #1 Agent in Englewood Cliffs for 9 consecutive years and was recognized by “Real Trends America’s Best” as one of the top 1.5% real estate agents in the United States for 2021 and 2022. Her sharp eye for detail and love of personal interaction makes her one of Bergen’s best.
Some of the adjectives Barri’s clients use to describe her are: proactive, knowledgeable, responsive, diplomatic, patient, reputable and honest. Her determination to provide extraordinary service is what makes her tick. This passion stems from her days on Wall Street where she developed foreign exchange trading systems and sharpened her negotiating skills. Barri loves fitness and the outdoors. At home she enjoys gardening, cooking and most of all, her family.
Barri was above and beyond in the sale of our home. She expertly guided us through multiple offers and difficult/unreasonable buyers. Not only is an expert in the real estate market she is an expert in understanding people and their needs as buyers/sellers. She was always available, at every appt, walk through, etc., was responsive, and has great attention to detail. She is also tactfully candid and will tell you an honest assessment of your home relative to the market, to set realistic expectations which is refreshing. I do not believe any other agent would have done for us what Barri did, and when we are ready for the next house will be back to Barri!
Barri has now been our agent for 3 houses. We recently sold our home in Englewood Cliffs and had no hesitation calling Barri. Barri helped us from beginning to end, starting with advising us on how to best present our home to maximize its value. She walked through our home and gave us advice as to how to make things “better”, ranging from advice on how to remove hard water stains to staging of furniture. She was practical in her suggestions and we never felt like we had to do anything, but we trusted her guidance, her experience and the process.
Here are some key words to describe Barri:-Professional, proactive, dedicated, patient, reputable, diplomatic, prompt, credible, responsive, experienced, connected/networked, responsible and, not least, very knowledgeable. Need I say more?She is not just a tour guide! She knew all the houses in EC and she walked through all the pros and cons of buying specific houses.A good friend recommended Barri to us and she was an excellent partner in our 1st time home buying process. She met our high demands with her positive client first approach and I am confident to say, we were only able to buy our house because of her.
If I could give 10 stars, I would! Choosing Barri Plawker to sell our home was the best decision we made. Barri’s experience, business savvy and resources were clear in her ability to extract the most favorable deal for us. Barri delivered numerous highly qualified buyers and was able to get us a better than marketplace price during a time that prices were falling. She adroitly managed difficult buyer demands, and as luck would have it, our sale was scheduled to close during the pandemic lockdown. Barri again shined here, going above and beyond to help keep the deal on-track and helped us get everything ready during the most difficult circumstances. I highly recommend Barri Plawker.
Barri Plawker is a top-notch real estate broker -- truly excellent. I chose her because of her strong reputation in the area, and my experience working with her validated that reputation. She is smart, knowledgeable, experienced, and resourceful. Her advice was spot-on at all times, and you can feel confident that she knows what she is doing. She works very hard on your behalf, and she adds a ton of value. I have completed many real estate transactions across the country, and I can say without a doubt that she is one of the best agents I have dealt with. I give her my highest recommendation.
Barri was awesome! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a broker. She was exactly what I look for in a buyer's broker - extremely knowledgeable, honest and incredibly responsive. She really knows her stuff when it comes to the quality of different finishes, brands and local builders. She was not pushy at all and was not afraid to share with us what the pros and cons were for each house we visited. In addition, Barri is very warm and easy to get along with. You can tell she really cares about her clients. We bought a foreclosed property and Barri went above and beyond in helping us arrange the panel of experts we needed to get comfortable that we really understood the shape the house was in. Highly recommend!
Barri is a pro's pro. She's got a great reputation for service and expertise, and it's well warranted. She knows all aspects of the NJ/Bergen County marketplace, coupled with a much broader understanding of overall Real Estate supply/demand dynamics. She's honest, no nonsense, and her follow up is stellar. And she's personable too. Her Assistant Raquel provides great support. Barri helped me navigate through a challenging and ever changing marketplace, but we found success in a highly collaborative fashion. . I couldn't have done it without her. You shouldn't either.
