I took over a 12 unit apartment building in Kingston, Ontario in 2004 as my parents suffered from dementia, I did my best to run it from Ottawa but it was simply impossible. By the time I found Barry Property Management, the tenants had "Property Standards" on speed dial and the fire department was clearly unhappy with my attempts to keep the property up to the standards they expected. Additionally, my supervisor was allowing friends to live rent free if they needed to and only occasionally reporting missed payments until I asked for the money. Everything had to change and the location was a well-known problem part of the city. Luckily a friend suggested Barry Property Management. Within 3 months, my supervisor and the most troublesome tenants were gone. The Fire department was happy and Property Standards never returned. Over the first year, stable tenants were found and renovations were done in a professional and expedient manner. Things were so stable that I considered keeping the building after my folks passed away and purchasing the apartment building from the rest of the family. I recovered every cent put into it over the last three years. In the end I moved out of the rental business. I’m still not sure that was such a good idea but I know I would still be employing Barry Property Management if I had continued as a Landlord and highly recommend them to anyone else.
"I rented from Barry property management and don't have a single negative thing to say about them from the first night I moved into my apartment they were there with anything I needed help with or fixed. My first night in the apt above had a water leak which in turn collapsed my bathroom ceiling I called Michelle and she was there with her repair team and had the cleaned and fixed up and hole ceiling repaired and painted in under 3 hours ... Any questions I ever had she was amazing and answered to where I could understand the terms she used. I would recommend Barry property management to anyone and everyone out there. When I needed out of my place she went above and beyond to get me into a new place and made sure everything was ready to move in. AMAZING COMPANY WOULD NEVER GO ANYWHERE ELSE!"
