" well rounded and easy to work with."
Working with Barry is as smooth and seamless as working with a good friend. He is a genuine and caring person with a high level of professionalism that's rarely come about. Perhaps that's what makes him so well rounded and easy to work with, and so it goes without saying that I would definitely recommend him and his firm to those who have yet to meet him.
