I am so glad that Barry was our agent to buy our first home. Barry was very helpful in the whole process, from finding the house to completing the purchase agreement. We learnt enormously from Barry. Barry was always patient and gave us many specific advises to address our concerns. In the end, we got the house we like and at a price we like. Also Betty is very experienced and kind. Betty answered our questions and kept the process moving smoothly. Many many thanks to Barry and Betty. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Barry and Betty to our friends.

Barry is a very very experienced real estate agent, he is so knowledgable about everything in buying house, selling house, building house, remodeling house, upgrading house, maintaining house, etc. His wealth of knowledge made him unique that he can get you the best deal whether you are buying or selling a house. We have no hesitation to highly recommend him. We would like to rate him as the best real estate agent. In our first house purchase, Barry and Betty negotiated with the seller's agent, got us the final sale price $40K lower than the listing price (listing around 620K, final sale price around 580K).

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.25M in La Jolla, La Jolla, CA.

Barry and Betty are the people you want to have on your side when buying or selling your house in La Jolla. Their knowledge of the La Jolla market is second to none. Barry has a great knack of first narrowing down to your wants/needs/desires and then going to work for you. He is best negotiator we have come across and I would rather have him by my side then opposite of us :-). Betty compliments Barry with being an immaculate planner of the team, we were always informed at every step of the way on the process from offer, escrow to closing. She was always on top on all aspects from inspection to following up with the bank. We would without hesitation recommend the Tash team to anyone looking to buy or sell in La Jolla

Bought a home in 2014.

Barry and Betty helped me purchase a beautiful home in La Jolla. They are incredibly knowledgeable and creative. I would never be able to get the house without their help. I was so lucky to have them represent me.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $1.525M in La Jolla, La Jolla, CA.

I can not say enough regarding the wonderful job Barry and Betty provided in helping me and my wife purchase our home. We flew into San Diego with less than one week to find an area to live in, and narrow down on the home of our dreams. We discussed our needs prior to our arrival, and found that Barry clearly understood what we were looking for. For the first three days, Barry showed us a smattering of homes in the four areas he thought would best meet our needs. Once we located the neighborhood we were most interested in, Barry showed us a range of houses that both fit within our budget but also met our needs as a growing family. The genius of this broker is that he genuinely understood every aspect of the houses we looked at. Not only could he tell us about the scripted details of each home, but he explained every detail of how the house fit (or didn’t fit) into our expectations. He explained every history of every neighborhood we saw. Barry had a strong grasp of everything from the soil the house was built on to the expectations for neighborhood growth over the following ten years. He backed up his explanations with solid data, and gave us his honest opinions about the houses we were interested in. Once we found a couple of houses we liked, Barry really went to work. His goal was to get up the best possible price on the unit, and he did this with ferocious tenacity. Although he maintained the highest level of integrity throughout his dealings, he also knew when to push and when to sit back so that the negotiations always went in our favor. Again, he would explain his approach and thinking with every aspect of the deal. As soon as the house went into ESCROW, Betty’s dedication became key in finalizing the purchase process. She was active in helping us achieve financing, and always worked to make sure things moved forward seamlessly and efficiently. It was not uncommon for Betty to contact us in the middle of the night (San Diego time), to make sure that documents that time sensitive documents were signed during our business hours in Japan. In the end, we bought a beautiful house at the best possible price. We were able to found the home we desired, and have an accepted offer in less than one week. We were able to close escrow in 45 days living overseas and requiring a sizable jumbo loan. I honestly believe that no other real estate agent in the area would have been able to assist us with this as Barry and Betty did. I recommend them without reservation for any home purchase.

They are very knowledgeable regarding the listings available. They were very patient with me by showing all that was on the market that fit my requirements and did not hesitate showing me as much listings as I wanted to see. They were very helpful in the the closing process by guiding me through the closing process. They found the loan, the insurance the inspectors etc.

Sold a home in 2009 in La Jolla, San Diego, CA 92037.

In 50 years of purchasing real estate world-wide I have only found a few brokers who really "knew their client". Barry takes on an assignment and never looses track of it until it has met the requisites of the client. He is relentless in pursuing and following up with details.

A customer who really wants to make a purchase or is looking for "a Deal" needs to contact Barry. It has been my pleasure in working with him.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $1.875M in La Jolla, La Jolla, CA.

He's simply the best at what he does - negotiation! He was able to find important defects in the house we were in the process of purchasing which the inspector had missed. This led to a big sum of money being credited to us to fix those defects. Barry more than made up for his commission in this transaction.
