Barri was the listing and selling broker for the sale of our home in Tenafly. From start to finish, the level of care and concern she showed my wife Olga and I was much more than we expected. She made the whole process effortless. What was equally surprising was how much help she was to the buyers. I'm in the hospitality business and service like this is very rare and far between. I would (and have) recommend her in a heartbeat. If they gave 7 star ratings this is what I would give her.
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.
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.
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.
We purchased our 1st home with Barri in May 2022, and we had the BEST experience. We went through multiple agents and finally met Barri, and that’s when everything changed! My wife and I were unsure of what neighborhood to live in, but Barri was very knowledgeable and toured us around the entire county to show us all the pros and cons of the towns in the area. Without Barri we probably wouldn’t of had a home by now. I highly recommend Barri. She is honest, thorough and always has your best interest at heart. She truly spent so much time with us and talking to us, I thought she would drop us as clients how needy/picky we were. Barri is not only our agent but she has become a friend.
Barri did a terrific job at every stage of the process of selling our house in Englewood Cliffs. At the "interview" stage, she gave us more and better information on the strategy and planning needed to achieve the best sale price on a short schedule. She then helped us make educated decisions about how to get the house ready for the market. While Barri cautioned us along the way that she could not guaranty that her proposed strategy would go just as planned, just about every item she forecasted came true. As a result, we were able to sell our house quickly and at a higher price than we expected. The comfort this gave us was invaluable. And she continued to help us at every stage: from thinking about selling, to strategizing and preparing, to putting the house on the market, to showing the house, through the bidding and contract process, and all the way to the closing. And Barri and her team were timely and responsible in responding to questions and other matters that arose, including recommending competent and qualified professionals to handle or sorts of tasks related to getting the house in shape for sale. Thanks, Barri -- great job!
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!
I knew I found the representation I needed to sell my home in Englewood Cliffs, the moment I ended my first call with Barri. She doesn’t tell you what you want to hear, but rather what you need to hear. Equipped with real time data, deep local industry knowledge/experience, and an empathy for the home owner that is emotionally attached to their property, Barri was swift and comprehensive in her assessment of our needs and the property given the tight timeline we had presented her with due to our relocation plans. Attentive, proactive, and thoughtful are the adjectives that come to mind when I think back at the quality of service Barri provided. While Barri was able to help us reach our ultimate goal of selling our home, we will always be grateful for the personal touch that we felt during our interactions in what most would typically describe as a very transactional relationship.
