Expert advisor. Quick responder. Value generator.

Barry has been a part of the First National Financial commercial team for the past 20 years, and has originated more than $6 billion in commercial financing.

For Barry, property value is a concept that must be understood and identified on a case-by-case basis. As a real estate owner, borrower and manager himself, Barry treats clients the way that he wants to be treated as a client.

In short, he responds quickly, communicates honestly, commits fully and executes with speed and precision. There is a dedication in how he works – to meeting timelines, delivering value and ensuring client goals always remain at the forefront.

Working at First National, Barry feels proud to be the type of lender that he would choose for himself. It’s that commitment that has guided him for 20 years and will continue to shape his approach. Barry is a graduate of Acadia University where he earned a Bachelor of Business Administration, Finance Major.
