We recently needed to relocate across the state to the Harrisburg area for a job change. We only had 3 months to make this move. A friend recommended Coldwell Banker and we got connected with Terry Barr. From our initial conversation and throughout the entire buying process, Terry was extremely responsive, helpful, compassionate, and a true adviser. He was willing to meet us according to our schedule and was flexible with time constraints and unforeseen circumstances. He served as an unbiased source of information while helping us to make an informed decision. After looking at over 20 houses, we found the one that met our needs and Terry helped us to make it our own. We cannot thank Terry enough for his time, diligence, attention to detail, and true heartfelt kindness. If he feels that he can improve a situation in any way, he will go above and beyond to make it right. In our situation on the day of closing, the house was not as we had hoped. It was not cleaned thoroughly as promised. Terry made this right and had the house cleaned for us prior to us moving our belongings into the house. He saw a need and did all that he could to turn this into a positive experience. Many, many, many thanks for Terry’s patience and compassion.
I was looking to relocate to the Harrisburg area from outside Philadelphia. I discovered a community similar to the one I would be leaving new construction and I was excited about the many possibilities it would afford me, but I was also challenged with selling my current home. Terry N. Barr became my agent for both processes. He drove to my home outside Philadelphia and did a complete inspection, gave suggestions and developed a comprehensive marketing plan. Terry did his homework by investigating the area and researched comparable homes to mine. Then when a private buyer made an offer Terry conducted all negotiations and closed the deal to my satisfaction. He guided me through the process of my new construction and connected me with a Harrisburg area bank for a mortgage. Terry is a full-service agent. He is responsive to all questions in a timely manner. Terry N. Barr listens to your vision and needs and then does his best to bring them to fruition.
We could not have had a better experience selling our home after 35 years of living and raising our family there. Not only were we almost brand new to selling a house, but we were also moving cross country to start our retirement lives surrounded by children and grandchildren. There were many unknowns and then in stepped Terry with his incredible ability to listen and clarify and assist with the many questions that were in front of us. Terry works with people - not just houses. That is what impressed us the most. He is practical, positive, optimistic, and direct. His key judgments were always right on the mark - to pricing the house, to recommending what we should invest in when updating or staging the house and the timing of putting it on the market. He was always available, responding to questions, concerns regardless of whatever else was going on with his business. We always felt like we were a priority and valued clients.
Terry Barr served as the agent for the selling of our old house and the purchase/building of our new home. In both roles, he was professional, honest, and easy to get in touch with. His eye for design helped us customize our new home so that it perfectly suits our needs. He also provided expertise in preparing our prior house for sale. Every realtor who showed it commented on how well everything was presented. The same level of care was given to making sure that our house “showed” well online. When there were issues with a lender, close to settlement, Terry fought to make sure that we were treated fairly and respectfully, and that future client would not be subject to similar struggles with the same party. We have developed a great respect for Terry, not only as a professional but as a man who treats others the way that he would wish to be treated.
In the simplest terms, an experienced realtor adds a value to the process that cannot be overstated. We started our home search in April of this year (2018) and learned this value the hard way. Our first realtor was relatively new and we found ourselves doing much of the leg-work. That in itself was not a big issue. However, having a realtor that does not have experience did cost us opportunities and would likely have not been able to close a deal in this seller's market. After releasing our agent, we were referred to Terry Barr by a number of people including a mortgage broker who was assisting us in our financial options. Terry was a God-send. With over a dozen years as a real estate agent, Terry was able to give us an honest view of the market and gave us options we had not heard about during the first five months of home searches.
