Barry came highly recommended by a friend of a friend and we were not disappointed, rather very satisfied. Barry set up several showings to accommodate our short windows as we travelled from out of province, then after learning what we were looking for gave us a video tour of the property we eventually settled on. He gave good advice both on an ultimately unsatisfactory property and our next and successful offer. We too can highly recommend him. - Richard & Janice Johnson
Barry is an exceptional realtor, and was paramount in helping us find our dream home. As first-time homebuyers, Barry was very patient and supportive and went above and beyond to offer advice on home ownership and the home buying process. We will always use Barry for our realty needs, and would highly recommend to others! - Keri Jo Moore
Barry has been an absolute pleasure to work with. He is patient and understanding of his client's needs. He also applies no pressure and offers honesty and insight in his services. His many years of experience and "client first" centered approach definitely shows in his work. I would recommend his services to others. - Michael
Great Experience working with Barry & Cynthia Culhane and definitely avail services in future as well as recommend her to friends & family. Very knowledgeable and professional guidance during the whole buying experience. - Gaurav Bhargava
Barry's knowledge, experience, honesty and patience in my home buying process was invaluable. Due to a rapidly changing market and a laundry list of criteria I needed to fill on my purchase, it was not a straightforward process for me but Barry had endless patience and helped me get there. He was even more valuable to have on my team in the process of closing the deal. I have already recommended him to friends and will use him again the next time I'm in the market. - Mark Adams
Sensible, hardworking team. Barry taught us a lot about what to look for in a showing. He is very knowledgeable about how houses are built, and has a gift for seeing the potential of a place. His recommendations and ideas for small repairs and big projects was excellent. Barry is punctual, responsive and a shrewd negotiator. We were grateful to have him on our team. Cynthia went out of her way to help out, too. No constructive criticism (and we would share it if we had any). We wholeheartedly recommend Barry and Cynthia to you. - Angela Champagne
Barry restored my faith in R.E Agents. after a previous disappointing experience. Barry spent hours explaining the process in the sale of my home. He arranged and paid for the home inspection. He came to my house numerous times and even called me while away with his wife! Unfortunately due to personal reasons the house had to be taken off the market. Barry and the buyers agent were understanding, and courteous, very professional gentlemen. I would not hesitate to recommend Barry and would definitely use him again. - Frieda Herrington
Cynthia and Barry are incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and patient. They took great care to listen to our needs and match us with the right home. We would trust them again should we need to find a different home. - David Kenney
Barry knows the industry inside out and backwards, and it shows. His straightforward approach and advice is exactly what I needed while navigating the market. I'd easily recommend Barry to anyone who is looking to either buy or sell. - Jaimie Hunter
Barry is an amazing Realtor. He is very knowledgeable about the market, insightful regarding potential of a property and honest with his feedback. His excitement about real estate shows through as you spend time with him looking at properties. He is easily reachable, prompt and professional.

His ability to keep the situation calm and answer any and all of my questions helped to make all the transactions we have executed with Barry smooth and enjoyable. - Scot Benson
Barry Klatt & Cynthia Culhane are great realtors, making it a reliable team. They have wonderful personalities, are fun to deal with and are very knowledgeable. Prior to listing the house, they provided their professional views of the market, and items that we needed to deal with it, as well as, the listing expectations. Everything went accordingly to plan and the house was sold within a couple of days. Thank you, Barry & Cynthia, for your service! Chantal & François - Francois Vincent
Barry is great to work with. This is the second time I have used him as a realtor and I would definitely recommend him and Cynthia! I had a bit of a complicated situation and he stuck with me for over a year, his patience and understanding were great and he helped me find the perfect home for me and my two kids. - Jessica Thompson
This was our second time working with Barry. Both times he was personable, knowledgeable, efficient and effective. We have no hesitation recommending Barry as a realtor for selling or buying. - Carol Neale
Barry is very knowledgeable, easy to work with and took the stress out of selling my house. This was the first time selling a house in this crazy market and he made it so easy. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an agent - Jennifer Lengsfeld
Barry sold my house in a matter of a couple days for above asking. He was professional and knowledgeable in handling the sale from beginning to end. All questions were answered promptly and thoroughly. He was personable and lovely to work with I highly recommend him. - Lisa T.
Excellent and fast service! I was surprised how quick he got my house on the market and even more impressed that it sold 50k over asking price! I highly recommend Barry and his team! - Jimmy
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
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
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

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
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.

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!

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: Thank you for the fantastic review, really glad we passed our first zoom interview with you! Cynthia and I always enjoy dealing with first time buyers that we can help guide and can deal with our sense of humour, makes our jobs fun.
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

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
