About Barry

Originally from Wilmette, Illinois, Barry graduated from the University of Kansas in the late 80s and started working for Perl in 1997. How does a guy with horrible math scores on his ACTs become one of the country's most successful mortgage brokers? Barry's drive and motivation came from his first home buying experience. "When I bought my first home I was clueless, and the loan officer I worked with never lifted a finger to help me or answer any questions. Being on the other side of that negative experience drives me to make sure my clients feel the exact opposite. I'll sometimes tell my clients up front that I will be holding their hand from start to finish, whether they like it or not."

A homeowner with a child on his lap calculating whether to buy a new home or refinance his home loan

Owning a home is fun and fulfilling!

What’s not to love about having a space that is entirely yours? You can paint your bathroom fuchsia, have hardwood in the master, put up a wild Mosaic in the kitchen, install a smart thermostat, you name it. After all, it’s your home!

Equally enjoyable are the other personal and financial advantages of being a homeowner: security and stability, equity and wealth building, and more! I’m here to help you get the most from your home financing — whether you’re buying your first home, moving up or downsizing to match your lifestyle, or refinancing your current mortgage.

Reach your homeownership goals

Choose from the tools below to help you achieve your homeownership goals or view all purchase and refinance tools.

  • There are some major milestones on your road to home financing. As your loan officer, I’ll be with you every step of the way to make sure you understand each one and get through them quickly.

  • How much will your mortgage payment be? How much can you save if you refinance? Is it better to buy than rent? Use these online calculators to crunch the numbers and see for yourself.

  • I separate myself from other lenders by offering a broader selection of home financing options — from loans for first-time homebuyers to refinance programs for accessing your home’s equity.

  • Before you explore the endless options of home financing, some preparation is in order. Planning ahead for your mortgage is the key to an easier and more successful home financing process.
