About Barry Newman

“My goal is to serve my clients the same way that I would want to be taken care of if I was a buyer or seller.” – Barry Newman

 

Barry opened Willow Lake Real Estate, a residential real estate company in Glenview in 2001 and ran it until 2010.  Realizing that he was splitting his time selling homes and managing brokers and that sales suited him best, he decided to sell his brokerage and  team up with the fastest growing real estate brokerage on the north shore, @properties.  Since that transition his home sales have kept him in the top 3% of brokers nationwide. 

  

He is a hands-on broker, from home market analysis to custom marketing for each client listing. With over 92% of home buyers searching the internet, an enhanced online presence is essential. Barry insures that presence by utilizing @properties' superior marketing strategies with his focus on the the specific needs of his client.  Plans feature targeted advertising, email campaigns and the most current and innovative internet vision available. Prior to introducing a home to the community, he will work with the seller to optimize the presentation of their home, expertly assess the market value, identify the target market, and develop a strategic marketing plan.

 

Barry is an Illinois native, born in Chicago and raised in the north shore. He and his wife and son moved from Chicago's Depaul area to Glenview in 2002, where he currently resides with his wife, their son's dog, Cody and their water turtle Spike Water Rock Newman. An enthusiastic Chicago sport's fan and, when time permits, an avid golfer.  

 

Barry’s Success:

:: List to sell ratio is a high 96% – this means he correctly prices properties

:: Listings sell in less than four months on the market

:: Buyers purchase their properties at a low 78% of the list price
