Bought a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $450K in Fairlington-Shirlington, Arlington, VA.
Barak Sky is a great realtor. He is completely professional in everything he does and works hard to ensure you get the best possible deal. His extensive knowledge of the Washington D.C. and N. VA area makes working with him very easy. He is always on call and takes the extra time to ensure he meets your schedules needs when showing house. Multiple times throughout the buying process he made himself available for weekend viewings and after work hour showings. This was perfect for us as we both work full time jobs in different areas. We are so happy with our new home and Barak was instrumental in making it a reality.
Bought a Condo home in 2015 in Adams Morgan, Washington, DC.
If you are looking for a great realtor in DC, Barak Sky should be your top pick. I could not have been more pleased with my experience with him. Barak helped me get a great condo in my ideal neighborhood in DC this spring. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the DC/VA/MD markets and individual neighborhoods, and he is well connected. Most importantly, you could not find someone more responsive, which is crucial in such a fast-moving market. Overall, Barak is a great guy, and he has the skills and experience to find you your dream home.
Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $800K in Bethesda, MD.
We have known Barak for 20+ years, and he is an extremely hardworking and responsive agent who is a pleasure to work with. He was particularly excellent at upfront marketing of our home in Bethesda, and due to his team's advice and hard work, our home sold without any issue in less than 2 days. Needless to say, we recommend Barak Sky as a seller's agent highly!
Sold a Multi Family home in 2015 in Glover Park, Washington, DC.
I am EXTREMELY satisfied that I chose Barak as my realtor as a first time buyer. His attention to detail for what I wanted and needed as a buyer during the looking process was exceptional. He provided great assistance is locating a property that truly fit all of my needs. From there, his negotiation skills really shined through. He was quick and deliberate with the listing agent and the sellers and had me under contract at a GREAT price in less than 24 HOURS!!! It only gets better and better... Barak will team you up with finance and title professionals that are second to NONE. From ratified contract to close, Barak and his team will provide top notch, first class service every step of the way. All in all, Barak will be my realtor of choice and recommendation for ALL future real estate transactions I am involved in. My only regret is that I didn't buy sooner with help of this true professional.
I found Barak after my first realtor was not as responsive as I liked. Barak took the time to learn exactly what I wanted and didn't waste any of my time on places that I wasn't interested in. He is thoughtful, particular, and has very high standards, which as I client I really appreciated!
Bought a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $600K in Bethesda, MD.
I have known Barak personally for many years but this was the first opportunity I was able to work with him in a professional capacity. I always knew how hard he worked for his clients, but seeing it first hand was very impressive. He is incredibly knowledgeable, very personable, and is always working towards the clients best interests. He is always available when you need a question answered, and walks you through the home-buying process. His team is fantastic and I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone interested in buying and/or selling in the DC Metro area.
Showed home in 2014 in Columbia Heights, Washington, DC 20001.
Barak helped us through every stage of the buying process. He was eager to show us tons of places at the drop of a hat. He had good insights into which neighborhoods were going to go up in value and which neighborhoods had already peaked. In DC, where properties go really fast, it's important to have an agent who is knowledgeable about the market and is vigilant in looking for new properties. One more I woke up to a text that said, "I've found the place you're going to buy." We went to see it, loved it, and bought it. It just shows how much he listens to his clients and what they want. Additionally, since he showed us the place early on (it's new construction) we had our choice of condos to buy and were able to get a better price and a good closing deal via the developers.
He works hard to make himself available for his clients. Since my husband and I both work full-time, it was really helpful to have an agent who was willing to show us places late at night. Barak is also extremely attentive and made every effort to make sure that we understood every part of the buying process. The night before we signed our contract, he called us to make sure we understood everything that was going to take place. He was with us through the entire process, all the way through closing. His team also set up our condo and car insurance among many other things. We had a great experience with Barak and are very happy in our new home!

Thanks SOOOOO much Becca! Thank you for trusting me with your transaction and it was so great to work with you as well!
In a very competitive biding war situation, he used a unique strategy that we never would of thought to do and won us the house! He was always available to answer questions and kept us updated on the progress all along the way. Highly knowledgeable and great to work with!
