Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Littleton, NC.
Barney was extremely knowledgeable about the home buying market of Lake Gaston's real estate, and he simplified the home buying process for us. He was easy to work with and eased our anxiety about purchasing a vacation home. We would recommend Barney to anyone who is looking to purchase waterfront property on Lake Gaston or around the lake.

Barney accomplished precisely what we asked him to do for us. We needed to sell our house as quickly as possible for the best price. We did just that and were extremely satisfied. Barney is very knowledgeable and in touch with the real estate market around Lake Gaston. We could not have selected a better agent for the sale of our house.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Baltimore, MD.
We listed our home w/one agent, but she retired and Barney took her place. He has been very attentive and given immediate replies everytime we tried to get in touch with him. He was quick to find answers to questions . When we ran into a problem, he worked w/us with a lot of patience and assurance.
Hewas honest with us about what would sell our house and still be fair to us. We were able to selll it with his help.
Barney Watson is someone who has extensive knowledge of the Lake Gaston market. Because his career in Real Estate is so tenured, he understands the ebb and flow of pricing dynamics that affect property valuation.
Our closing was on time and flawless. He walked us through an easy to follow process that ensured our home was sold promptly. I would recommend Barney to either buyers or sellers who want a professional on their side.

Whether you are a buyer or seller Barney Watson does an outstanding job. We worked with Barney from both sides and would not hesitate to work with him again. As a buyer, he gave us a comprehensive overview of the market based specifically on the type of house we were looking for. Then, he helped us find the right home. As a seller, he worked with us to prep our house for market and created an excellent listing. Since we were out of state sellers, it was not possible for us to handle some issues that arose during the selling process. Barney jumped right in and did all the footwork and coordination on our behalf. This was a great big WOW for us and we were very appreciative of his personal support. He acted not only as a super agent but also as a super friend. There are none better than Barney Watson.
I've had the opportunity to work with more Realtors than I can count over the years, and my experience with Barney was one of the best. Selling a home can be a challenge, especially a vacation home, and doing so remotely, and Barney was responsive and made himself available to answer all questions and respond to all the "hiccups" that are inevitable along the way.
Highly recommend him for his professionalism, local and real estate knowledge, demeanor, and expertise.
Barney is a great person to work with and really understands/knows the real estate market in Lake Gaston. We started to work with him through emails in Feb 2012 and he provided numerous listings to us based on our going in requirements. For the next two months we reviewed listings and the last week in April we drove to Lake Gaston to look at the houses that we picked. After the initial group of houses that he showed us and our reactions, he re-evaluated the houses that we picked out and threw out the ones that he knew we wouldn't like. He took the time to understand our wants and listened to our comments and only showed us houses that we would like. We did find one after the visit but he said that if we could wait till the next week he was possibly getting the contract to list a house that was perfect for us. We did get the call on Thursday that he did get the listing and we signed the contract on Saturday morning. We closed on the house 45 days later and have enjoyed the house immensely. We would highly recommend Barney to anyone.

It was a real pleasure to work with Barney. He was both the agent for the seller and the buyer and handled both parties with very few problems. Love our new lake home! A dream come true for my husband and I. He seemed to know what we wanted after our second meeting and guided us in the right direction.
Barney was very helpful through the whole process, his follow through and attention to detail was unprecedented. We like the fact that he was very knowledgeable about the lake and market conditions. We would recommend Barney both as a professional and a friend. We did not know Barney before we started this process but feel we have now made a friend through our interaction.
Our initial exposure to Lake Gaston occurred several years prior to our decision to purchase a home on LKG. After researching realtors, we found that Barney was highly respected and well recommended by past clients. Once we met Barney, we found that he is very honest, knowledgeable, and most importantly, he is truly dedicated to his clients. Barney's persistence and timely response to our questions made this transaction smooth and much less stressful than it could have been. Barney is a true professional who I would feel confident in recommending to anyone in need of real estate services. Oh, and most importantly, he drives a pick up, wears jeans and sneakers and likes to fish! Thanks Barney, we will have you over for a cookout this summer!
