I am so glad I asked Barry to be my realtor because he worked a miracle for me! I came to find a home in Calgary with a very tight 3-day time limit. I had sent Barry a list of houses I saw on-line from which I was confident I would find the right home for me. Barry and Cynthia were ready with appointments first thing in the morning and we looked at all of them and a couple that had listed more recently, but like so many things on-line, they weren’t as attractive in person and I was prepared to leave without having reached my objective. Well, Barry had listened carefully to everything I had said about each house I viewed and he monitored new listings as they arose. He called me in the late afternoon with a new listing he was confident would meet my expectations and had already arranged an appointment for that evening. The house was exactly what I was looking for! Barry also called in a favour and we had the house inspected the next morning! I left Calgary three days after arriving having purchased my ideal home! Thank you Barry and Cynthia. Call them. Maybe they’ll work a miracle for you too! - Kathryn Pedwell
Barry is very knowledgeable and trustworthy. He knows his job and does it very well. He helped us selling our home and purchase a new one. He explained every detail to selling, and answered all our questions. He always reassured me that I was never asking to many questions. When looking for a new home, he would let us know everything we needed to know about the home and whether if it would be a good fit for my family and needs. I would recommend Barry and Cynthia - Samantha Greve
Bought our first home with this team, they were super helpful and helped us find the perfect fit. On top of that they are extremely professional and reliable, would recommend to anyone i know looking for a house - Colton & Paola
Barry and Cynthia were very good and very knowledgeable. Very efficient getting us to a newly listed property that might meet our needs and got it done when we found the home we loved and wanted! Thank you - Melissa Bullied
Barry was fantastic - from appraising our home's value to help with staging advice and getting us sold at 98% of list in 3 days. Further, after closing the sale Barry worked with us to find a great home in our perfect neighborhood, and in a hot market got us the deal on the first home we liked enough to even make an offer on, not even counting the fact that we loved this place and would have been heartbroken to lose it. Will definitely use again if we ever decide to sell this place, and highly recommend. Thanks Barry! - Michael Hossack
Barry & Cynthia were truly amazing and integral to not only a very successful sale of our existing property but also the purchase of our next. Given how the market was rapidly evolving and the size of our family we wanted to limit the exposure and stress on all of our filmily members during the move. Both Barry and Cynthia gave us the advice and support required to not only get a quick sale but also secure the new property in very short order to ensure we had somewhere to move to with our large family and fury friends. They walked us through every step of the journey and even helped after we missed a few vital details on our end during closing and exchange. Thanks both for your tremendous efforts and honest professional advice to ensure we were set for a seamless and stress free move! - Stuart Deakin
I can not say enough good things about Barry and Cynthia! I was extremely green to the home buying process and overwhelmed at the idea of buying in this crazy market. I did a lot of research regarding potential agents, and knew from the get go this dynamic duo would be a great fit. Not only were they both super personable and fun, they were extremely patient and knowledgeable throughout the many steps of buying a home. I think I looked at over 40 homes in a short period of time, and every instance they only had what was best for me in mind. They knew exactly what I should be looking for, what to avoid, areas to consider and ultimately gave me the confidence that the home I eventually purchased was the perfect one. I never felt pressured once. They absolutely were a pleasure to work with, and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking to buy a home. You guys rock! - Blair
This Pair is a Dynamic Duo. They are organized, they are efficient and responsive, thorough and personable. Their knowledge of the inner workings of the City planning and how best to deal with the bureaucracy is a real asset. Knowing how to handle their clients and navigate delicate issues that can arise in the sale of a property is another skill they have. Transitioning from Residential to Commercial property, they do with ease. Indeed they compliment one another very well. We grew very fond of Barry and Cynthia because we knew they had our best interests at heart and would look after us well. And that was exactly what they did. Couldn’t say enough about them. “Don’t leave home or property without them!” - Bryan and Evelyn Donnelly
One of the best out there! Highly recommend both Barry and Cynthia. Awesome advice and great tips. Thanks for taking all the stress away you told me in the beginning we would sell and we did . - George Tilikidis
We can't imagine using anyone other than Barry Klatt. He is incredibly professional, respectful and realistic. We were floored by his industry knowledge and if he was ever unsure about any detail he would find out immediately and follow up. His advice is always invaluable. Barry is extremely responsive. In this market, we truly believe that we would not have had success finding our home if it were not for Barry's work ethic and commitment. Thanks, Barry & Cynthia! 10/10 Would recommend. - Jason Lyons
Great job! Barry was knowledgeable, professional and responsive—not to mention easy to work with! We really appreciated all the time and effort he put in to help us find our home! Thanks again! - Jacquelynn Benson
Professional, organized, courteous, helpful with property preparation guidance. They understood what was important for the current market, and provided astute guidance regarding product placement. The process was painless. - Rick Foulkes
This is not my first time using Barry and it most definitely will not be my last! Not only is Barry the most knowledgeable realtor out there, he is also the best dressed! All jokes aside, Barry will ensure a professional, positive experience for his clients and you will leave the transaction with not only as a client, but as new friend. You will not meet two more capable and pleasant people to work with than Barry and Cynthia. Cheers to making our dreams come true - Ashley Reilly
It was our first time buying a house and Barry was great to work with. He took the time to explain everything about the process and all the ins and outs we needed to know as first-time home buyers. He is very knowledgeable and provides practical and honest advice. - Shelby
Cynthia was very trustworthy, knowledgeable, took into consideration our wishes and the overall experience was a 5 out of 5. Barry was a perfect match to Cynthia's style and I enjoyed working with both of them. We sold our home and purchased a beautiful home through them. I would definitely use their services again! - Maggie Brander
Barry fully explained his role and responsibilities. He was knowledgeable about every aspect of the sale. Firm and aggressive in negotiations. We were at ease, and confident that any deal was negotiated with our best interests in mind, not a quick sale. His knowledge of the Calgary market is second to none. We live in Ontario so all correspondence was done via emails, texts and phone calls. I was confident and comfortable at all times with any suggestions Barry made. Paperwork was provided on time and was followed up to ensure timely submissions, he made himself available 24/7. Couldn't ask for better representation and will absolutely refer and use him for any future real estate transactions. - John and Stephne Kolnik
I bought and sold this home with Cynthia and both times it was a great experience. Cynthia is knowledgeable, professional and encouraging throughout the sales process. The team dynamic between she and Barry leaves you supported 24/7 and your requests, concerns and needs for advice are always promptly addressed. There are so many realtors available to choose from, but this team has heart and will support your needs and vision and will not lead you astray. Highly recommended - Star
Barry is extremely thorough and professional. He has guided us through 3 sales and made the entire experience easy. His communication is fabulous and he guides you through all the steps in the process. I would highly recommend him to any buyer or seller. - Erin McClocklin
I was fortunate enough to use Barry & Cynthia based on a recommendation from my previous Realtor. The process was excellent and the property sold right away with zero issues. This literally could not have gone better, which only happens because of knowledgeable people making it happen. Great Job! - Kevin Higdon
I Highly recommend these two realtors to anyone! They are very knowledgeable, work hard and extremely personable. They make buying or selling a home feel easy and natural. Barry and Cynthia are a fantastic team! - Luke Ceraldi
We always appreciate Barry's practical advice and suggestions. He has always been very responsive if we have any questions or concerns. Barry's knowledge of the market and home construction is a major asset when both looking at properties and selling. - Landon
Barry was great to deal with and knew every single option of every decision we had to make and offered great advice compared to who I ever dealt with in the past. Would highly recommend ! - Mathieu Tremblay

Very professional and responsive, Great advice for staging and feel this helped with the sale. Quick turnaround. Ended up being a loss but I feel it was minimized considering the market and other factors. - Brendan
Being a first time home buyer came with a lot of stress and worry but after meeting with Cynthia for the first time we knew that we’d be taken care of. She took all of the stress away and made the process unbelievably easy for us. I would recommend her to anybody looking for a professional agent who has your best interests in mind! - Brennen
Dealing with Barry in buying our first investment property was a fantastic experience. They were extremely knowledgeable with the city secondary suites by laws, would highly recommend them! So glad we picked him! - Paola
I have both bought and sold a property with Cynthia Culhane. She thoroughly walked me through the entire process and managed my expectations throughout so there were no surprises. Cynthia was always available to answer questions and always made sure that I fully understood the next steps or where we were at. In business, trust and relationships are critical and - if you want to work with someone with whom you can partner with - I can't recommend Cynthia Culhane enough because you will be taken care of with a sense of care that is more than anything fiduciary. 10/10. - Kate Madden
Reply: Thanks for such kind words Kate. It was a pleasure helping you through both the purchase and the sale of your home. I'm glad to hear you felt supported completely throughout the process. We pride ourselves in communication and transparency. This testimonial suggests we are doing things right by our clients. Thanks again for the kind words. Stay safe and well Kate!
Cynthia was our realtor for buying and selling this home. She also sold our previous home. We have found her to be honest, professional and very knowledgeable about the market and her profession. This was a tough year to be selling and she went above and beyond to make that happen. We would recommend her wholeheartedly! - Leona Petrick
Reply: Thanks for such kind words Leona!! It's easy to do a great job when you have clients like I have!! You and Brad were a pleasure to work with and made a fairly stressful situation fun, believe it or not!! I hope retirement is all you hoped it to be. ~ Cynthia
This isn’t our first time having Barry as our agent. He has been involved in both the selling and buying a home in the past. As well as a purchase with our Son and Daughter-in-law . Barry is very knowledgeable, willing to listen to our needs and roll with the constant changing circumstances. Barry went above and beyond to successfully sell and purchase a new home during these trying times. Thank you, Barry - Jane Brunton
Reply: Thanks so much, the two of you and your family have always been so great to me, appreciate it! I would have to say the best part is you're famous Janey line to me on a Friday night, word fr word "Sorry to interrupt my wine and fire but do you have any updates for me?"
Barry was awesome and made the process of buying our first home easy and enjoyable. He is very knowledgeable and has a lot of great connects in the industry. He did a great job of walking us through each aspect of the buying process. I would highly recommend Barry to anyone looking into real-estate in Calgary. - Katie Tait
Reply: Thank you for allowing us to work for you, really was our pleasure. As first time buyers you were very trusting and willing to learn which I believe was the perfect equation to achieve the right house for you.
Wonderful realtor. Barry definitely knows his stuff! It was our first house purchase so we really valued his lead in the negotiations (of which he was totally spot on), plus he had an abundance of home reno ideas that we appreciated and are definitely going to integrate in our new home. Would recommend him to anyone else without a doubt!! - Kristen Adams
Reply: Thanks so much for the kind review, like many first tie buyers especially starting a new family you really invested in learning and asking questions while following our lead. I really love the house you purchased with the location that I believe will the perfect work / family/ life balance!
Barry was absolutely fantastic, could not recommend more highly! He was not at all pushy and as we were first time buyers he took lots of time to teach us the ins-and-outs of purchasing a home. Through the entire process we always felt that we were in extremely capable hands and that Barry was fully looking out for our long-term interests. - Aron Zahradka
Reply: Thank you so much for the greta recommendations and review. I really appreciate first time buyers with so much enthusiasm for learning and investing in a first family home!
Thank you Cynthia and Barry for your assistance and time in selling our house. We are truly grateful for your experience and help. We will be sure to see you when we are ready to buy again - Angie and Bill Hamm
Reply: Thanks so much for choosing us, we really enjoyed how you listened to our advise to prep the home then stayed on board to achieve the end result. Best of luck in the future and see you on the ball diamonds.
Barry and Cynthia were great to work with buying my first home. They had great advice on the pro’s and cons of each property we looked at and I did not feel rushed or pressured to buy anything. Buying a house is a huge investment and Barry and Cynthia are a great team who pull from their many resources to assist you in making an informed decision. They are approachable and highly responsive, which was great as I feel I had a million questions. They were very quick to answer any questions I had either by phone, email or a quick text message. I highly recommend this team of professionals. - Paul R.

Reply: It is so easy to do a great job working with great clients like you Patti!! I am so glad we were able to sell your home in the timing in which you wanted it sold by and for a great price. Right at the beginning of the abyss of COVID and we did it together. Thanks again for choosing us, it was our pleasure!
Thank you so much helping us with the sale. It really made things easier for us during these busy times. Also, having things go smoothly during these strange Covid times. - Dawn
Reply: Dawn we appreciate your kind words, you are truly the calmest person we met as we had to work through this years covid times and surprise hail storms, thank you.
During our first home buying process, having Barry as our realtor was a great asset. Barry took the time to explain in details everything through the process of purchase. He was always there to answer all of our questions over the phone, by email or even by a virtual meeting on Zoom. He is very experienced and knowledgeable. He is also very professional and never tried to rush us to make a decision. We would highly recommend Barry to anyone looking for a great realtor. - Michael Mahrous
Reply: Thank you for the review, we are pleased that you were able to search for us on line, interview through zoom and choose us, it was an honour. I really appreciated he in depth questions, sometimes clients are afraid to ask because they're not sure, you asked and allowed me to find the answer if I didn't know at the time. You and your wife were great to work with while learn more about the new city you choose as home.
We had a wonderful experience buying our first home with Barry’s help. He was very knowledgeable about the market and shared his experience with us in choosing a home; he helped us see the potential in each place we viewed, which led to us making some updates to the property before we moved in; we are so happy with the result. He was always available for our many questions as anxious first time buyers. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor! - Jennifer Pavez
Reply: Thank you, you were our first possession this year as a new family purchasing a first home in the covid times! Really enjoyed your patience and understanding and truly from the heart appreciate both you and your husband as front line workers! What a year.
Cynthia was awesome. She helped make the enormous task of buying our first house easy and fun. She is friendly and knowledgeable and was always able to answer our questions and help us through the stressful parts. - Jeff Green
Reply: Thanks for the kind words Jeff. You and Amanda were an absolute pleasure to work with... not to mention getting to know Nathan, what a gem. First time Buyers are so fun, especially ones that have great sense of humours and don't wear matching socks... ever! Thanks for letting me be a part of this amazing journey with you.
Very informative and always very attentive to needs. He is very realistic as well. He helped us through a very tough time of selling in this Alberta Climate... this is impressive!! - Siva Rajadurai
Barry went above and beyond to help us sell our home. He was always available whenever we had any questions or concerns. He helped calm us down when showings were not coming as quickly as we had hoped. He is extremely good at his job and I would highly recommend him to sell or buy your home. - Heather Davies
Barry went above and beyond to ensure we closed on our dream home. We could not have done it without him, especially since we were out of the country throughout negotiations. We would highly recommend to friends and family looking to buy or sell their next home. Thank you again! - Mackenzie Naylor
Thanks for everything this was becoming a little stressful as showings dropped off completely after election. Price was lower than we wanted but was expected with current conditions. Thanks Barry for always keeping our spirits up. - Howard Davies
I have know Barry for awhile now and have bought and sold a few places with him. He always gets the best price in a very timely manner. I look for his valued opinion and knowledge on all real estate matters. He is prompt and communication is excellent. Thanks again Barry - Derek MacKay
Amazing team to work with- very knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. They made the transition buying in Alberta extremely easy. We would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or who is thinking of buying here. They were extremely honest and gave their personal opinion when asked. - Melanie Vankoughnett
I wanted to thank Barry for his patience on showing multiple homes until the right one was found. Renovation and tenant experience was helpful to the process as well. The core function of the website was very helpful in searching for a home, however, there are usability and interface things that could be improved on. Have already recommended Barry's services to others. - Mitchell Latimer
I’ve worked with Cynthia a few times now on selling and buying of homes and always found that she does her homework and will sway me away when a property didn’t seem like a perfect match. Very pleasant experience. Highly recommended! - Trevor Horvath
Thank you Cynthia for helping us sell our house and then also helping us to find our dream acreage! You are wonderful to work with. (Also, Thanks to you and Barry for doing open houses in -30 weather). We also really appreciated the referrals to a great stager and mortgage broker. My only suggestion would to be more active on Facebook and Instagram page. These platforms are super important to keep updated so that the houses that are on the market keep coming up in the feeds of people who are buying. - Jennifer
Barry and Cynthia made this process super easy. We had 1 month to buy and they were able to find us the right home just in time! They're amazing people that know their stuff! - Josh Muir
Barry was fantastic from start to end, and then some. He was never pushy, and took into consideration what we wanted in a home. No matter how indecisive we were, he always kept us calm and level headed with his knowledge. In addition to his knowledge about the industry, he was always super personable and friendly. Despite the professional relationship, we now also consider him a friend. To anyone looking for an agent, don't look any further. Go with Barry & Cynthia. You won't regret it! - Heather Tran
Reply: You two are the best, never indecisive, it's hard as a first time buyer to understand real estate and options. Cynthia and I just educate and guide so you can make the proper decisions for you and your family. Yes the great part of teaching is we get to make friends along the way!
Barry brought such a refreshing feeling to the us as our realtor. He was super knowledgeable, not pushy, listened and responded well to everything we were looking for, and kept us within our price range. I would recommend Barry Klatt to anyone looking to buy or sell. - Luke Ceraldi
Reply: Thanks for the kind review, great thing about doing this for 20 years is I get to work with friends!
