Brian Jemelian – Yamaha Corporation of America
During a terribly difficult economy, and a depressed real estate situation in the South, Art persisted and got us to the finish line in the sale of our 75 acre, 275,000 square foot facility in Thomaston, Georgia! … He found the ultimate buyer and navigated the course, negotiating a price that kept both parties interested and then sold the property in well under 75 days from offer to cash.

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……

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.
