"Peter and Mark were not my first realtors. But they were my last! Prior
to engaging their services, I had been told that people don't search for
homes the way "it used to be" and that realtors needed to wait for clients
to call them if they saw a listing of interest. In a 90 day contract, I
had 2 showing. THEN I LISTED WITH PETER AND MARK. They devised a plan,
took incredibly beautiful pictures, video walk through and drone footage.
They listed on various social media sites, all the typical real estate
sites and mailed slick marketing materials. We had showings during our 10
day "Coming Soon" period and I lost count of the showings by week 2. In a
short time, we had a solid offer which closed. The whole experience was
emotional for me but they were on top of everything including helping me
find an agent in my new locale. I would give them a '12' on a 10 point
scale!" - J.C.L. | Coral Ridge
"I have now had Peter Barkin and Mark Gilman sell a house for me and more recently assist me in purchasing a new home while I was living out of state, which I couldn’t have done without them. They are highly organized and conscientious, detail oriented, always on time and respond immediately to every phone call and question. I would highly recommend Peter and Mark to anyone looking for an agent. " - Susan F.
"My wife and I worked with the Barkin-Gilman Group recently on the purchase of a new home in Fort Lauderdale. We were moving from another state and needed to maximize our time during the couple house hunting visits we made. Here is what set them apart from all the other realtors we’ve worked with in the past. 1) Their work ethic was second to none. We saw over 25 homes in a single day. They looked at it as a challenge. 2) Their organization and planning were perfect. they didn’t wait for a single showing. They rearranged a couple showings on the fly to fit our schedule as it changed throughout the day. they added showings as we found homes on our route that we wanted to see. 3) Their experience about the Fort Lauderdale market and real estate in general made it feel like they were part of our team and we were able to draw on that experience. they also interjected if he felt we hadn’t thought of something. They always had a good read on what we needed in the way of assistance and information. 4) When it came time to negotiate, they were professional and knew all the appropriate angels to take. Again, their experience and read of the particular situation were excellent. We can’t imagine not using the Barkin-Gilman Group for our next transaction! " - Tara & Mike M.
"We used the Barkin-Gilman Group for the recent sale of our house in Coral Ridge. They were extremely professional and helpful in every way. Their photographs and marketing were excellent, and they seemed well connected and well respected by their peers in the real estate community, which resulted in excellent attendance at a Brokers’ open house. We had moved out of state before closing, and they were there for us in making sure that the last details of closing were handled expeditiously. " - Joseph D.
