My husband and I recently purchased an apartment with Barak in the Bethesda area. The experience was positive from beginning to end. I personally was really impressed with Barak's knowledge and helpfulness. He always responded to emails quickly and set us up with a portfolio so we could see what was on the market and real estate coming onto the market. <br/><br/>We live overseas, so it was a huge help to get advice about schools in the area, doctors, dentists, etc. When it came time to close the deal, everything was completed smoothly and professionally. Since he is from the area, he really knows the market and neighborhoods of the DC, VA and MD area. I strongly recommend Barak for anyone needing real estate help in this area!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Falls Church, VA.

Highly recommend Barak Sky!

As first-time homebuyers, Barak helped us through the process from start to finish. He is super responsive to emails and phone calls. He was always well prepared for the showings, professional and most of all he made us feel comfortable during this important purchase! Barak was never pushy and he really took out all of the stress of being a first time home buyer. All in all we highly recommend Barak Sky. He is on top of his game; what more could you want from your realtor!

Bought a home in 2014 in Columbia Heights, Washington, DC 20010.

Barak did a great job from the moment I contacted him until the closing on the condo. When we found a condo we liked and decided we wanted to take a look at it, I contacted several real estate agents and Barak responded in minutes, whereas I never heard from the other agents. Barak created an online profile for what we were looking for so we were able to pick a few other condos to look at in addition to the initial one we were interested in.

Barak showed great professionalism and integrity while showing the condos. He highlighted the attractions and also the downsides of each unit we viewed. For example he mentioned the poor quality of the wood floors in one unit, something that I would never notice. He also was never pushy or tried to "sell" us any of the properties. He simply talked about the pros and cons and let us come to our own conclusions.

When we found the place we liked, Barak worked closely with us until closing. This was our first home purchase so we were a little overwhelmed with everything so it was essential to have someone trustworthy to guide us the way.

The biggest factor that needs to be mentioned is that he knew that the seller wanted to move quickly so we could probably get the place for less than what it was listed for. He was right and this saved us $33,000!! Also when the closing costs ended up being higher then what we expected, Barak offered to split the difference with us just so we could still afford it! He also gave us an awesome closing gift on top of all of this!

Bottom line is that Barak is a great agent, and really represents the buyer well. It is apparent that his goal is to help you make the best decision and not to just take a commission. He is very easy to work with and he saved us a TON of money which is always good. I would recommend him to everyone.

Bought a home in 2014 in Columbia Heights, Washington, DC 20010.

From the first meeting at his office until after closing day, it was evident that Barak is truly passionate about what he does. I am a first time homeowner and started the process with very little knowledge about buying an apartment, but Barak was available to answer my many questions any time, even during odd hours and the weekends. When Barak saw the listing of my current new home, he immediately called me to let me know about it, the next day he took me to see it, and a month later the place was mine! Barak is approachable and professional and I recommend using him as your agent.

Barak is the realtor you dream of. Not only is he super responsive and knowledgeable, but he works hard to "get" you so that he finds the perfect place for you. He made apartment buying in DC a delight!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Falls Church, VA.

Barak just helped me find and close on my first house! Couldn't have been a smoother and easier process. Extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market and woks to find the house you are looking for in your price range! Additionally he was a huge help during the closing process by arranging and scheduling everything. I will use him for any future real estate transactions in the future.

Barak is a sharp agent with great market knowledge. His network of relationships with developers and sellers agents give him the ability to adequately negotiate a solid deal for his clients. I highly recommend using him if you're actively in the market. He won't let you down.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Forest Hills, Washington, DC.

We collaborated with Barak for 7 months as we searched for the right house. Barak listened to our interests and then was tireless and patient in trying to make certain we found the right house, only suggesting and showing houses that met our criteria in terms of price, design and location. Very much enjoyed his company as well as advice on houses. He is also extremely good at advising on making offers and extraordinarily supportive during the negotiation as well as closing process. For anyone looking to work with an exceptional professional to find the right house, can highly recommend working with Barak.
