After a few tries with other real estate agents in the phoenix area I was fortunate to find Barry Cox. My list of wants and needs for a home was lengthy as I care for my mother on a full time basis and her needs had to be met. The house needed to be four bedrooms, three baths, with one of the bathrooms specifically suited for my mother, also the house needed to be single story with a pool, high ceilings, landscape complete, space around the house, no street lights, schools or commercial buildings nearby and a view of something other than my neighbors garage or window. One of the many incredible aspects about Barry is that he is a very good listener with an excellent memory. So rare to find a person who actually listens to your needs, tries to find the gem and generally wants the client to be a “happy homeowner.” There were ever so many times I would have settled and or compromised my list of wants and during those times Barry could have made a quick sale and been done with me but that was not his goal. His goal was to achieve my objectives. His diligence during the review of each property involved the detailed analysis of the condition of the house, a review of the topography of the land and surrounding homes and he advised me of the options I would have for repairs and or concerns for the topography. This man was actually working for me and not after the quick sale. How could I have been so very blessed? Once we found the home then the negotiations started and again Barry represented me in a professional manner and did not back out of the negotiations just to make a sale. Every step of the process, he was quick to return phone calls, responded to all of my questions and stayed with me through the arduous loan process down to and including the day of closing. Now you might think that is the end but NO, Barry’s list of helpful folks for repairs, fixes, painting and guidance through the now owner process was also ever so very helpful. If you are buying and or selling your home you will be doing yourself a great service by selecting this Consummate Professional to work with you through out the entire process.

One would think buying a home from out of state would be stressful, but working with Barry Cox ELIMINATED that stress completely. We purchased our home without ever seeing it thanks to Barry and his tireless commitment to his clients. Barry helped us get our ideal home and treated the transaction as if he were buying a home for him and his family. Barry was there for us every step of the way. Barry performed a detailed walk through on our behalf, he sent pictures to make us comfortable with our purchase, he ensured that the Appraisal picked up anything and everything so we could negotiate the cost of repairs with the seller, he worked with our Mortgage company to ensure the transaction was running smoothly, he negotiated with the seller to get us a fair price…he did it all and it was way above and beyond what we would ever expect of a Realtor. I recommend Barry for all of your real estate needs because there is not a better Realtor out there that can provide the service that he did.

I strongly recommend Barry Cox. Being in the Mortgage industry I quite frankly do not like Realtors... After spending 4 days in Barry's car, not only have we done business with him; I am recommending him to all my friends and family; actually I would have to say I would call him a friend. Barry is not your typically Realtor, he is very thorough and precise. He will profile your likes and dislikes and finds the ideal home. Our friends actually bought a month before us, that's where we got Barry's info from, and they ran out of time on their house hunting trip. Barry knowing what they wanted in a house, found their house and they bought site unseen, they love it...

My home search was smooth and painless, thanks to the experience and knowledge of my Realtor Barry Cox. After looking at countless condos and town homes, we found a great property that we will be able to enjoy for years to come.

Not being in a hurry we spent over 2 years looking for a home to purchasefor retirement. We monitored the market through Barry's daily email updatesof new listings and price changes. Barry took us around in the April of this year but advised us that the places we liked were just too much relative to the comparable recent sales in those areas. Barry's concern was that we get a place we liked at the right price - not just a sale for himself! We foundthat place the first week of December and purchased a home we had looked at in the Spring without leaving home. We found Barry to be a great guy, knowledgeable, hard working, concerned about meeting his clients needs, and more importantly to me we found Barry to be HONEST! Friends are amazed at the place we have purchased for the price we paid and have asked for his contact info. We strongly recommend Barry to anyone buying or selling a home in the greater Phoenix area!

WOW, Barry was fantastic. He responded very promptly to our initialrequest for information (and that was on Thanksgiving night). We monitored his emails and spent a few weeks narrowing it down. Barry was very available and ready to go, once we arrived in Phoenix. In one day he showed us over a dozen properties throughout the entire Phoenix Valley region (Chandler, Scottsdale, Mesa, and beyond). Barry was very thorough in his research of the 3 we narrowed it down to, and we were able to make an offer the next day. His dedication to helping us did not end with the offer...he continued to be very helpful throughout inspections/repairs, HOA questions, closing, etc. We LOVE our new place! Anyone looking for dedicated, reliable, experienced Realtor in the Phoenix area should definitely use Barry Cox. We are glad we did!!

Searching for a new home can be challenging! At first, many realtors contacted us with little or no follow through. In fact, I am still waiting on a realtor to give me her Christmas vacation schedule and it is now March! Fortunately, I found Barry shortly thereafter. Initially, I requested he telephone my husband at work and he phoned within minutes of my requested time. I could not believe the excellent service! My husband is a lawyer who deals with details and if Barry pleased him...imagine how delighted you will be! All of the testimonials are true because I experienced the same customer service too. He is cordial, listens to what you want, timely, knowledgeable and beyond professional. Barry is interested in your long term investment and his goal is to make certain you are very satisfied with the entire process. We love our new home and look forward to our furniture arriving so we can invite his family to celebrate our new life! Realtors like this don't happen very often...I would highly recommend him and would not hesitate to use him for any further real estate needs. He is absolutely fantastic at his chosen profession!

Since I purchased my first property in 1968 I have dealt with over 20 real estate brokers. I can emphatically state that no one, no one has come close to the service level provided by Barry Cox. On March 1, of this year we purchased our Scottsdale home, a nice two bedroom, two bath condominium near the Kierland section of town. Barry was actually the fourth broker we had enlisted. The first three defined the word “non-responsive”. While all of them were indeed “Realtors” they gave us the impression that they were chasing the million dollar homes and had no time for the small condominium buyer.
I contacted Barry Cox of Realty Executives of Scottsdale after I read an article he wrote for one of the newspapers in the area about the Kierland section of town. After emailing us many MLS listings that met our requirements, Barry was able to advise us on two complexes which he though fit our needs. Within ten days after contacting Barry we made an offer on a condo, “sight unseen.” Barry was willing to view the property for us, take numerous pictures and advise on what he thought was a fair price to offer. We flew out to Phoenix that week, met Barry, viewed the property and agreed “we made the right decision”. Barry moved the paper work along and advised us of all the steps along the way. We were able to close escrow within 15 business days and acquire title to the property.
Barry Cox is a true real estate professional and the perfect model “Realtor”. He takes his work diligently, provides information in a very timely matter, advises clients on the “pros and the cons” and always returns calls within a few hours and most of the time within a few minutes. We will certainly recommend others to Barry Cox and will not hesitate to use his services again.
