Testimonials for Barry Pilger
Meeting Catherine and Barry was the best thing that has happened to my real estate investing career. They put me into a fantastic condo in the Jack London District. I paid the lowest price per square foot ever paid in the building where my loft is located.

We were living in The City and had never owned a home but we had two little boys and one more on the way. A colleague suggested we call Barry for help.
At first we thought we wanted to stay in San Francisco and found a condominium we liked. Barry explained the pros and cons of the condo, and we decided to look for a house instead, but outside the city to stay within our budget.
So there we were two little boys trailing along, both of us taking time off our jobs, the new baby only a couple months away. He organized financing so we could compete successfully in what was a hot market. When we found the El Cerrito neighborhood and house we wanted, he arranged everything even the plumbers and electricians who found an inexpensive way to install a laundry. He and Catherine, his wife, even brought us dinner the night we moved in!
Every step of the way, we felt completely cared for, completely confident that someone as smart as he is was looking out for our interests.
And now we're a family of five in our new home!

We called Barry at home on a Saturday morning to ask his help with a mortgage for a condominium we found on our own. As he asked a few questions about the transaction and the role we wanted him to play, we realized that we wanted and needed all of his expertise, both as a Realtor and as mortgage broker. He dropped everything and met us in his office that day.
Barry negotiated hard for us, but in the end we walked away. We knew the unit was over-priced, based on the research he provided.
By Thursday of the following week, we were in contract for another condo we wanted. This time in the Sierra. Within a month we were living there.
His advice about how to find, evaluate, negotiate and finance our condominium was incredibly helpful. Barry s experience with all aspects of the process made it simple for us. There were no surprises.
We recommend him to all our friends and wouldn t dream of calling anyone else when we re ready to buy our next home.
