Bought a home in 2015 in Rollins, Grayslake, IL 60030.

From day one working with Dick he was always there when I had any pressing questions. He was straight forward with me on what type of deal we would shoot for and had referrals for other services needed. I would recommend Dick Barr for his service.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $100K in Franklin Park, IL.

I have known Dick for about five years. During that time I have purchased property, and provided two referrals -- both of which, ended in successful closings.

The most recent transaction involved my elderly mother's house. At the age of 90, she was no longer able to live alone and it became necessary to sell her home which had fallen into disrepair. I was certain that we would be letting it go for little more than the cost of a new car. Dick assured me that wasn't the case and was able to sell her home for a price that was well beyond our expectations.

It is of my opinion that Dick is one of the most trustworthy people you may ever do business with. He performs his work with an honest transparency, and values his clients. He is an active listener who asks important questions and provides answers to yours. Dick makes the client's goal's his own, and he speaks in layman's terms to make the process of buying, and selling, understandable.

Dick is my real estate agent for life, and I highly recommend him.

Michael, you have no idea how it makes me feel to see these words. Your experience is exactly the experience that I strive for every time. I don't always hit the mark, but it feels so good knowing how it makes clients feel when I do. Thank you for everything!
