The architecture of New York City has always been a huge inspiration for me. Combining the love of working with people and striving to exceed their expectations, I deliver my clients exactly what they asked for while communicating in a clear, concise, and open manner. I believe finding a home for clients is an honor and finding the one that exceeds their expectations is what I find most enjoyable. 

A native of Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan, I graduated from Western Michigan University with a degree in Fashion and Apparel Design then moved to New York after deciding to pursue a second degree from FIT in Technical Design and Pattern-making. I bring a proficiency in finding my clients the most unique homes on the market. In my free time I enjoy visiting museums around the city (the Met being my favorite), as well as going to comedy clubs and trying new types of cuisine. I specialize in Columbus Circle, Midtown East, Gramercy and the Financial district for residential sales and commercial leasing.

Helped me rent a home.

I recently had to move within a very short time frame. I really appreciated that Barclay showed me only apartments which fit my criteria. By day 2, I had put an application in on an apartment. Barclay was so helpful and did everything to expedite the process. After the move-in he followed up to make sure all went well. He was highly professional throughout. I would definitely work with Barclay again and have already recommended him to friends!  More Less

Showed home in 2013 in East Village, Manhattan, New York, NY 10009.

Recently I was offered a new job in lower Manhattan and had to move quickly from the upper east side after only living in Manhattan for 6 months. As a novice I tried looking at apartments on my own with no luck. I decided to try to work with an agent and luckily Barclay responded almost instantly. We spent the entire day around my schedule to see apartments that I would never have come across on my own and were my exact specifications. I could tell that he did a lot of research before our time together and it really paid off! He answered all of my questions and made me feel like I was his only customer. Although I ended up going with another apartment; the next time I need to move Barclay will be the first call I make!  More Less

Helped me rent a home.

My apartment got flooded during Sandy. I needed a place in urgency because of family and work. We tried couple of individuals and by owner ads the day after the storm. After going through a few, I wasn't feeling that confidant and was thinking, this is going to be a major task. But as I dialed through various listings, one call was answered by Barclay. He asked few questions and then said, if I can trust him with this search, to which I said I don't know, because I had approached other people. I want to make it clear, that nobody came close to the openness and sincerety that I felt with Barclay. Offcourse he got us the apartment in 48 hours. Yes! partly luck has to do with it, but he was savvy to ask the right questions, and narrow down our need and budget. Never did I feel with him, that he is pushy, or want to move on to the next job. I did ask him to show apartments, beyond my range, and he complied, showed me places above below my range. I haven't felt this satisfied with service about any other realtor so far in my life. Actually have been bitten and falsely advised by few. I wouldn't bother to write this review, let alone create a login Id and do it. But I believe, Barclay delivers a sophisticated service, a combination of care, smartness, keen knowledge of real estate, a subtleness of aproach with his customers which makes the experience human and warm. When I move again I will contact him, but I am pretty sure, he will beat me to it.  More Less
