With more than 20 years’ experience in Bayside real estate, Barry Sloan’s specialist knowledge and superior auctioneering skills have helped thousands of clients confidently take the next step in their property journey.
As a fully licenced real estate agent and senior auctioneer, Barry’s personal motto is to chase down every potential buyer in order to secure the highest price from the market on behalf of his sellers so that they can achieve their property goals. “Property is such a big part of people’s lives”, he says. “I love that I can help people achieve what they need to get on with the next portion of their lives.”
A talented negotiator with strong networks among the Bentleigh East local community in which he and his family have lived for many years, Barry’s reputation for hard work, reliable service and solid results derives from his refreshingly simple approach. “I’m a pretty straightforward guy”, he explains. “I don’t baffle people, or make things unnecessarily complicated or make promises I can’t deliver.”
At auction, Barry’s multi-faced skills come to the fore. He credits his acting history and love of auction theatrics as the basis for his repeat success in selling under the hammer. “A good auctioneer gets the crowd on side quickly”, he says. “By having some fun with the crowd and helping people relax you’re in a much stronger position to achieve the best results and the highest prices.”
Barry together with the team at First National Bentleigh have successfully sold for many happy home owners over the years and are ready to tackle any auction crowd, in any weather conditions, no matter the situation.
