Few words speak as highly of a real estate professional as “experienced” and “successful,” and no one deserves such accolades more than Barry Rifkin. A veteran real estate broker and licensed mortgage broker with more than 45 years in the business, Barry has earned a reputation in the industry as “the Realtors’ Realtor ® .”
For the past 20 years, Barry has expanded his focus to not only include the conventional transactions, but to include also: Jumbo sales transactions, foreign nationals, FHA, VA, and short sales; which he gains a lot of satisfaction from. He helps clients with foreclosure and financial issues to resolve them by selling their properties, rather than lose them. His expertise in and dedication to assisting property owners entangled in such situations has made him the agent of choice in this challenging, high-pressure arena.
Ever faithful to his roots of providing superior service, Barry is quick to anticipate possible bumps in the road and smooth them out before they can impact a customer’s transaction. His extensive knowledge and experience enable him to keep clients fully informed and free of stress throughout the process, while handling even the smallest detail along the way.
Even after four and a half decades, Barry’s customers are still his top priority and finding them the perfect home and mortgage product remains his biggest thrill. “My greatest accomplishment is the deal I do today, not the thousands I’ve done in the past,” he says. “I look forward to the promise of tomorrow because it’s an opportunity to fulfill still another client’s dream.”
A native of New York, Barry moved to the Sunshine State and earned a degree in Business Administration from the University of Florida. Barry is an avid golfer, freshwater fisherman, loves the theatre and ballroom dancing with his wife.
