Art Barry recently completed the sale of a piece of commercial property that was in Cordele, Georgia for U.S. Timber Co./Southeastern Forest.
Marc Skalla – SASCO Chemical Group Inc.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for assisting Sasco Chemical Company in our efforts to locate a new office/batch mixing/lab in middle Georgia. When I first contacted you, our area of interest was just south of the metro Atlanta, GA beltway and once we gave you the facility characteristics we wanted you were very responsive and thorough in finding every available property that fit the description in that search area. The facility packages you prepared in advance of the various facility tours were complete and helpful in our analysis.
George C. Doomany – Andlinger & Company, Inc.
On behalf of Andlinger & Company and our portfolio investment company Sanga Corp., I would like to thank you for your expert and professional assistance in the sale of our property in Sandersville, GA.
1888 had an industrial building on 28 acres in Thomaston, GA which was difficult to sell due to the age of the facility and depressed area market. Art successfully closed the sale at an excellent price. What impressed me was Art’s ability to think out of the box for bringing perspective purchasers to the table. He has a broad range of useful contacts and unique ability to close deals.
1888 was very pleased with Art and highly recommends him and Coldwell Banker Commercial Eberhardt & Barry.

Greg Schroyer – Terri Lynn Inc.
Our company owned a pecan processing plant in Cordele, GA that had been sitting idle for over a year. The marketing efforts for the first year were not successful so our President asked me to find a broker to sell the building. I had worked with some real estate companies in Chicago so I asked them for a recommendation. The overwhelming response was that if you wanted to sell industrial real estate in the Cordele area, you needed to work with Art Barry.

Greg Swan – Lockwood Holdings
Our company began a search in February 2011 for a new office and distribution center in Americus, Georgia. Although I manage our industrial real estate holdings all over the country, I was somewhat unfamiliar with the Americus area. We searched the Web for an industrial real estate broker and there we read good things about Art Barry. Art is a member of the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors……

For many years our family has worked with you on any number of real estate projects and it would not be fair of me not to be willing to share with your potential customers my thoughts on the many talents that you bring to the difficult job of selling commercial real estate. You and your team have worked very hard on all our listings and as you promised, your email program communicating your listings is quite impressive. The Coldwell Banker Commercial network is truly unique and beneficial to use.

I was initially impressed with Art Barry’s enthusiasm, communication skills and professional demeanor when I began working with him more than two years ago. During those years that Art provided broker and property management services for my banking client’s multiple asset classes of commercial real estate properties. He consistently demonstrated all of these qualities described in this letter and more, and I heartily endorse him for any real estate services position.

Matthew Michael Co-Founder, M&R Marketing Group
We founded our company in 2008 and for the last several years we’ve had our eyes on moving downtown. When we began meeting with Stephanie we were a little anxious about purchasing a property and also about what would be involved with owning a building in downtown – where would we park, what shape would the building be in, who would we use for inspection and renovation, etc. From day one, Stephanie put all of our concerns to rest. Her level of experience and her resources quickly instilled confidence and excitement in the process. At every step of the way, Stephanie provided guidance and wisdom. She was available, attentive, and truly excited for us throughout the process. I have referred Stephanie to multiple colleagues since we started working with her and there is no one I would trust more to walk someone through the process of securing a property.

Vincent M. Oddo President and CEO of Birch Communications, Inc.
I have personally worked with Stephanie Folsom for the past eight years on a variety of Birch’s commercial real estate needs. In the early stages of our business relationship, Stephanie handled our office lease renewals, extensions, and other matters related to our Macon Operations Center. As our business has grown over the years, so has Stephanie’s role in helping us keep one step ahead of our needs.
During this past year, Stephanie assisted us in relocating our Operations Center within our desired North Macon area of preference. Her diligence, counsel, and creativity in this very important matter were outstanding. As a result of her hard work we were able to find the right 40,000 square foot space in North Macon and Stephanie also met our timeline and budget requirements which resulted in a very successfully relocation to our new space in Q4 2013.
I am convinced that our recent successful relocation in North Macon would not have been possible without Stephanie’s involvement in our project. For that the entire Birch Family is grateful!
President & CEO of Birch Communications, Inc.
Stephanie has been a delightful pleasure to work with since we acquired Vineville Crossing back in the summer of 2013. She is a true, hard-working professional who performs her daily responsibilities with only the highest sense of integrity. Her performance and overall service has been beyond stellar and far exceeded our expectations, as she was able to significantly increase occupancy and generate a higher rate of income in only a few short months with virtually no out-of-pocket improvement expense.
Stephanie has assisted NEXus Medical Holdings with leasing, sales, and acquisitions of business and medical offices. Her experience in the field of commercial real estate and her knowledge of financing methodologies contribute to her ability to consistently bring a creative approach and a can do attitude to the table. Stephanie is always the first person that we call when we are seeking a new location, whether local or elsewhere, due to her vast network of contacts.

Craig and Mitch Padgett
Being a small business owner leaves little time for the hassles involved in the selling of property. This is why my brother and I decided to list our property with Coldwell Banker. After meeting with Patrick Barry we knew we had made the right decision. He thoroughly explained the benefits of marketing our property with Coldwell Banker and he was right. We had a meeting of the minds on a property valuation and Patrick went to work.
As the weeks went by, Patrick did an excellent job keeping us abreast about what was going on with the property as well as letting us know that he was still hard at work. A few months later, Patrick called with the good news. He had not only sold the property in just a few months, but had sold it for 95% of the asking price. We were very pleased with Patrick Barry as well as the Coldwell Banker Commercial experience.
