In 1993 Barry purchased the company and became Broker/owner of record, managing 25 sales associates and selling real estate throughout San Mateo County.

In 2000 he affiliated with Pacific Union’s central Marin office and in 2006 was hired as the sales manager of Coldwell Banker in Greenbrae. The following year Barry returned to Pacific Union and became branch executive of the southern Marin offices where he managed 75 sales associates and a staff of 5 in three sales offices.


Barry’s career came full circle and he returned to Frank Howard Allen in 2009 to manage the Tiburon office. He was hired to continue his great work of supporting and training agents and transacting business for his personal clients in a challenging real estate environment. At the end of 2012, Barry decided to return to full time sales and is a Broker Associate at FHA’s Greenbrae office

Barry is an advocate for his community and for the homeless. He considers his 7 years of service on the board of directors for Homeward Bound of Marin and his past chairmanship of the organization’s real estate development committee among his most important community involvements.
