"Respect, integrity, and creativity aren’t just buzzwords to me. They’re the very principles on which I build the foundation of my business. And my life." – Jay Barré
With more than 20 years as a high-level marketing and sales expert working with some of the country’s most respected brands and real estate development projects, Jay knows all about the importance of capturing that one-of-a-kind story. The way Jay sees it? Your home is its own brand. And he identifies, crafts, and then tells its story.
Jay’s customized 5-Star Marketing Mix™ is designed specifically to tell your home's story – so that it lives in a distinct place in a potential buyer’s mind, thereby setting it apart from all the clutter out there. After all, every great brand has a story behind it that allows us to identify and gravitate to that story. It all starts with a discovery session to uncover what makes your home unique and special.
Jay & the Engel & Volkers team will take it from there to strategically position your home in the market to maximize exposure and tell its compelling story. From pricing strategy & unparalleled marketing exposure through our worldwide network to staging, curated photography and video, Jay will set your home apart your home apart with his sophisticated, results-driven approach.
"Working with Jay to sell my home was a process that was both uncomplicated and enjoyable. Jay is a consummate professional who manages to bring integrity and a thoughtful intelligence to the buying and selling process. His marketing background and creative thinking proved invaluable as he was able to quickly identify and match a unique buyer to my unique property." - Kai Clemen, Kai-Co Family of Industries
Jay has over 13 years' experience working in advertising on the nation's top brands, as well as a proven track record in real estate development. And, he has nearly 40 years' experience being what is commonly referred to as a genuinely nice guy. So, there you have it.
Jay gives back. Not because it sounds good, but because it feels good. To that end, a percentage of his sales are donated to those in need.
Jay tells it like it is, bringing together that all too rare marriage of substance and style. After all, respect, integrity, and creativity are drivers in everything - no, really, everything- Jay does. And this trifecta lives at the forefront of all his dealings.
Jay is assertive, but-not-aggressive. And, no matter what, he’s always available to you. Because when you decide to work with Jay, you work with Jay – not someone he will send in his place because he’s too busy to deal with the nitty-gritty. He’s meticulous, organized, and on top of things. He will know your property inside-out, upside-down, and backwards.
Jay has a history of impressive marketing and sales results working with some of the most esteemed organizations in real estate, including Wesbild Holdings Ltd., Sotheby’s International Realty Canada, and Intrawest/Playground.
Jay has successfully negotiated with suppliers, buyers, and sellers for nearly a decade-and-a-half. In doing so, he has developed a knack for his win/win style, which means everyone leaves the table feeling as though they’ve won. (His clients just “win more”).
Buying and selling a home can be a huge life moment. Jay ensures you’re in the best position to make an informed – stress-free – decision. His commitment to personalized, no-pressure service means he’ll shoulder everything from the big picture to the minutia, so you needn’t stress about anything falling through the cracks.
Jay listens. Which, let’s face it, is a breath of fresh air today. And that’s a big reason why people across the board – be it buyers, other realtors, or the local plumber – legitimately like him. He’s personable, easy to deal with, and, well, authentically likeable. (Who wouldn’t want a guy like that on their team?!) And in the end, that translates into swifter, less stressful, more advantageous negotiations.
"Deciding to go with Jay as our Realtor was easy. He worked tirelessly on our behalf and when it came down to negotiations, he was able to negotiate a price that we were very happy with. We've recommend Jay to our friends and have heard the same great things in return." - Julie & Tod Pelly
