Stacy is very motivated and goal-orientated. She is constantly thinking of new ways to market homes for her clients. Her knowledge of the real estate industry is an asset to her clients as she is always looking out for their best interest. She is cheerful and upbeat and a pleasure to work with.

Melissa K. Jones

Stacy helped us find our first house. She was very knowledgeable about the process from start to finish. We had searched around for a house about 6 months. She was very patient and attentive to our specific needs and very quick to respond to all of our questions. We will definitely be going back to her when we plan to sell the house.

Flavel Heyman

Stacy is a wonderful real estate agent. She was wonderful in finding houses that met our requirements and led us to the perfect house. I cannot give her a high enough recommendation.

Stacy Ambler

Stacy is very hard-working and does what it takes to get the job done. She replies quickly whenever a question arises and she is flexible to find a time that is best for you. I highly recommend that you work with Stacy if you need any help buying, renting, or selling a house. She will do a fantastic job.

Daniel Derksen

Sam. you performed a miracle! Thanks for all your hard work. I know it was a headache.


Sam, you made our "house hunting" such a pleasure. Our whole family thought you were such special person, and that you go far beyond the normal in the pursuit of not only finding a home, but the whole process.


You deserve a great big thank you Sam. Again, thanks for everything you've done.


Stacy is truly amazing! We moved to Indiana from Pennsylvania and knew nothing about the area. She was recommended to us by an acquaintance and we were more then impressed. She knew everything about the area, and if she was not sure about something she would find the answer for us and get right back to us. She took the time to provide us with information from Drs to daycares etc. She would also provide us with additional reliable resources if we were to have questions. Stacy went above and beyond any work that we expected from her. We truly understand now why she has so many awards in her office! We strongly recommend her and will use her again when we move! Thank you Stacy!!!!!!

Amanda M.

Kristen was great! She kept me in the loop with everything and always responded quickly to my questions. Also she had wonderful recommendations for who to use for my lender and home inspector. Susan Nemeth and her team at Stonegate Mortgage were fabulous! Stonegate kept in touch regularly and never missed a beat with all the paperwork and made sure I knew what to do and what was going on. The inspector was very knowledgable and gave me TONS of helpful tips for taking care of my new home. Kristen and the
recommendations she had for the other parties involved were great, I can't really say enough. My entire experience from start to finish was fun, easy and exciting. Kristen was genuinely excited for me to become a first time homeowner and paid attention to the important things I
was looking for in a home, it was nice knowing that I have a realtor who cares. And that's the way it should be!

Ashley R.

Being a first time home buyer, I didn’t have a lot of experience with Realtors and the home buying process. I did some research, reached out to a few Realtors and by far, Kristen was the most knowledgeable, responsive, professional and friendly. She kept us informed, helped us through the entire process and made it a great experience. Kristen offered great recommendations and referrals that proved to be very competitive and reliable – one of those being a lender who was also wonderful! I’ve had family and friends who have purchased recently and none of them have had as smooth of a transaction. Not only is Kristen a great Realtor, but she’s truly a wonderful person. I will without a doubt recommend Kristen!

Ashley P.

Stacy Barry and Kristen Yazel are an amazing team in the real estate industry. They are very knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate and went above and beyond during my home purchase. They listened to my wants, they search only houses that fit my needs and accommodated my hectic schedule. They were there whenever I had questions and quickly provided answers. I don't think anyone has experienced a smoother home process. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sale in the area.

Charlotte H.

Stacy and Kristen made a difficult transition for our family much easier for us. My wife and kids were back home as I looked for a new house while getting acquainted to a new area. Stacy was very flexible with my schedule and was very knowledgable of the entire area. We looked at a lot of houses and she gave us a lot of advise as to how to narrow down our choices and focus on what was most important to our family. The decision ended up being very easy. She got us through a bidding situation and the closing was easy. I would highly recommend the Stacy Barry Team for residential realty needs in Hamilton County and northen Indianapolis area.

Tim G.

Stacy is the most easy-going, no-nonsense agent my wife and I have ever worked with. She made an otherwise time-consuming and frustrating process a joy. We are new to the area, so we needed some extra hand-holding. We got just what we needed. Highly recommend.

Tom and Kara Anderson

Stacy and her team were amazing to work with while we were selling/buying. She marketed our house to sell very well and it sold in just 5 weeks. We had showings almost every day during that time and her team held 2 open houses as well, both of which had a good amount of traffic. We received lots of feedback after each showing and were always up to date on what was going on and what to expect. During that time, Stacy was also helping us to buy our current home which was under short sale. It was very confusing and difficult to deal with the banks and try to get response, but her and her team stayed in constant contact with us and let us know immediately when they had any new information. After 3 months we finally closed on our new home with no problems or worries what so ever! Selling our home and buying a new one were definitely 2 of the most stressful things that we have ever done, but Stacy and her team did an amazing job of keeping us informed and making the process go as smoothly as we could have hoped!

Audra & Geoff L.

This past March, my husband and I were searching for our first home with Stacy as our real estate agent. We cannot say enough wonderful things about her! She is extremely knowledgable about the greater Indianapolis areas (we were looking on the north side of Indy), she was very patient in explaining all the details to us as first time home buyers and she made us feel like we were her top priority, which is quite rare! Stacy gladly walked us through every stop of the process, helping us set realistic expectations about what we were looking for and we could hope to find in our price range. We absolutely love the home we found and we would recommend Stacy to anyone!

Suzan and Justin Z.

Stacy was very proficient in helping us market and sell our townhouse in a challenging marketplace. Her accessibility, direct approach and overall ability to market properties allow her to stand out from her peers. I would recommend Stacy as a seller to anyone seeking real estate consultation in the Indianapolis area market.

Steve S.

In June 2013, Kristen Yazel helped us find a family friendly place in downtown Indianapolis. We are just on the edge of what is officially known as the Lockerbie Square neighborhood. We absolutely love our new location! Although driving is just as convenient, we also frequently walk to Mas Avenue, our grocery store, as well as the YMCA that is in the Rathskeller/Aethaneum historic building. Kristen was an absolute joy to work with. She was very consistent in keeping in touch throughout our search, and even previewed all of the properties before we went to visit them. When it came time to make an offer, it was clear that she was knowledgeable and experienced in this area which we greatly appreciated. At the closing we had some conflicts arise with the way the seller was interpreting some of the line items in our contract. Kristen immediately stood up for her clients (us), and used awesome problem solving skills to prevent a delay of closing since there happened to be small discrepancy on the HUD settlement statement. I was extremely impressed from start to finish and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Damie & Dean A.

Awesome service. This is the 2nd time we have used Stacy, and she is great. We will use her again and tell all of our friends and family!

Joseph & Lyndie M

The Short version: Stacy Barry at Century 21 did an amazing job selling our house in a very short period of time (about a month!)
Long Version: My husband & I decided after having a couple not-so-great renters that it was time to sell our 2nd property located in Carmel, Indiana. Thankfully having joined a couple "moms" groups, I had gotten acquainted with a Realtor who not only lived nearby, was pleasant and friendly, but also I heard had a reputation for selling alot of homes. Stacy was very professional and I was very pleased with the extensive marketing she & her company did to get our home on the market. Within a short time we were getting showings and very soon after an offer. First offer wasn't exactly what we were hoping for, but not surprising as we knew we were putting the house on the market when home prices/values had already dropped. We held out a couple weeks and amazingly Stacy was able to reel the buyer back in for more negotiation. After a bit of back & forth, we were able to come to an agreeable sale price. Stacy was professional, efficient, and very patient with our personalities. She definitely was willing to go the extra mile to get the job done.

Tracy R.

Amazing real estate agent and team. Our house was sold within days and received full asking price. Answered all of our questions on a timely basis. Made some great suggestion that helped get our house sold quickly. Was very helpful prior to closing with paperwork and answered all questions.
I would definitely recommend Stacy Barry.

David & Malinda E.

We have had several great experiences with Stacy and her team. We have used Stacy twice to sell, once to buy an existing house, and once to buy new construction. One house sold in 1 day and the other in 10 days. Stacy has a very comprehensive marketing strategy that she uses to get maximum exposure for your house when selling. Most recently, she has been a great help with suggestions and advice as we've made decisions throughout the new construction process. I'd highly recommend her and her team!

Craig & Nicole K.

Best real estate agent ever!

I just moved to the area and I didn't think I would ever find house. Stacy actually contacted someone she knew was interested in selling later this year to see if they would be interested in listing their house now. She and her assistant were willing to show me houses at any time during the week. She was so helpful with the paperwork and the closing and made several recommendations for painters, carpenters etc.

I highly recommend her and have already given her name to a friend who is moving to town.

Mo H.

Sam is the consummate Pro. All proceedings are handled with respect and courtesy and the marketing plan from day one to sell the house went just as it should.

Kevin L.

I will absolutely use Sam again - he made a very difficult process very easy for me. I appreciate his hard work.

Eric O.

What a pleasure to work with Sam. He is very professional but also very amiable. This is our second move with Sam. He was referred to us by a friend and we would not hesitate to refer him to our friends.

Raymond & Donna S.

Sam was great to work with! He was always willing to help and answer any questions that I had! The whole process went extremely smooth and quick thanks to Sam!

Jamison R.

Sam was the best!

Judy A.

Sam is a true professional and on of the absolute best in the profession. I couldn't be more happy with my choice to use Sam for my real estate needs.

Christopher W.

Selling a house can be a harrowing experience. Between the decisions financially you have to make and the need to organize and re-organize, and then make over everything your nerves can be stretched beyond your normal tolerance. We made that decision back in September 2013 after 16 ½ years living in a house with 5 bedrooms, 2 attics and a full basement full of “stuff”. How can 2 people accumulate so much “stuff”?

If you’ve ever sold your house, or spent anytime watching HGTV you know immediately you need to de-clutter. But how much where to start and what does today’s buyer look for in a house and what’s their taste in décor?

We were fortunate enough to have picked and contracted with Stacy Berry and her team. She and her design assistant walked us through each room of the house and not only helped us with suggestions on reduction of “Stuff” but also helped us with re-decoration suggestions including colors. They helped us pick a theme color for the house and all the variances on that color.

They were especially helpful in the Kitchen and the family room. We thought we’d have to spend a ton of money to buy new cabinets and counter tops, but they suggested the quality of the cabinets were so good that we should repaint them. And all the hardware needed to be changed from the old brass that was prevalent though out the house.

The family room was a great room with built in’s, great wood trim, and a fireplace but it had wood paneling which dated the house and of course a brass fireplace screen. Again we thought we’d have to spend a lot here, especially if we took down the paneling – who knows what we would find there! They suggested painting the paneling on our theme color and I was skeptical but after the contractor finished, the change was unbelievable and made the room look very modern.

By the way the contractor was independent of Stacy, but was on a list of contractors she was familiar with and knew did a good job.

We did all the other things they suggested (too many to list here) but the best part was that all of this redecorating cost us less that the guest bathroom remodeling we did 2 years ago! And less than the budget we had set for ourselves (that includes putting in new granite counter tops).

The house was ready by the second week of October and in about 50 or so days it was sold. We had a lot of viewings and actually had 2 buyers in reserve behind the folks that bought it.

Stacy and her team told us what would happen next, right along the entire path of the process so that we were never worried about what’s next. We got a great and fair price, for the buyer, and us so in the end we’re happy!

I would highly recommend Stacy and her team, they made what would could be a nerve-racking experience into a happy ending for all.

Milt V.

We had decided to move to the Indianapolis area from out of state, but didn't know much about the area. Stacy and her team were very helpful in showing us around the areas that met our criteria and helping us to get a feel for the neighborhoods. Our ability to come up for showings was limited because of the distance, but Stacy was always available and made sure that we made the most of our time, even scheduling ten showings one Saturday (luckily our baby slept through most of it). She helped us to narrow things down to a neighborhood we liked, scheduled a second viewing on the same day for the house we eventually bought and walked us through the transition to home ownership. Even after the move, Stacy and Century 21 have helped us to get settled into the community, with recommendations for local businesses and contractors, as well as community events that they sponsor. We love our new house and can't recommend Stacy enough.

Jon Harris

The home buying process is supposed to be a very scary and stressful time, but Stacy made the experience easy, understandable and enjoyable! She is incredible!

Meghan Mioduski

Kristen is a wonderful real estate agent! She always kept me informed during the home buying process whether by phone or text, she always stayed in contact with me. She worked around my schedule to show the homes in which I was interested and was never pushy about needed to make an offer; she allowed me to move in that direction at my own pace. She pays acute attention to detail never letting anything fall through the cracks during the entire home buying process. I found Kristen through the Internet looking through a homes for sale ad online. For a serendipitous form of meeting, I could not have found a better agent! I do and will always highly recommend Kristen!!

Sonya Sloan

Being first time home buyers, we had no idea where to start. Kristen was amazing in the beginning to the end. She was very patient with us and listened to what we wanted and needed in a home. The thing I love about Kristen is that she really listens to what you want. Then when you find a home you love and want to make an offer on she helps you so you know what's a good offer and what's a bad offer. She keeps in touch with you whether its by phone calls, text messages, or emails. I loved that! I was never left in the dark about what was going on. We started out looking for a realtor and a home -- now we have a home we love and we have gained a friend. Could have not had a better realtor than Kristen!

Heather B. & Andy L.

I am writing to express my extreme satisfaction with real estate agent Stacy Barry, who represented me in the recent sale of my condominium.

Stacy guided me through the entire process, from offering suggestions on upgrades, to staging and ultimately accepting an offer and closing the deal. I credit Stacy with a smooth, stress-free selling experience.

My condo had been previously listed with another agent and unfortunately after several months on the market an impending sale did not seem to be in the near future. Stacy took over and I was delighted to have sold within three weeks. Stacy is savvy, personable and knows the market inside and out.

To reiterate, I am nothing but pleased with Stacy and her expertise and I recommend her to everyone.

Aly Schermann

I've known Stacy Barry for some time. She was a hardworking teacher so I respected her for that, but I also got to see her flourish as a real estate agent. I sent her a few customers over the years and had friends work with her successfully, so I knew she was the girl for me. I needed to find a home that was a good fit for my family, and I was hoping to find it at a time of year that isn't ideal...winter! Stacy listened to my wish list and advised me throughout the process. She was honest and looked out for my best interest for today and 10 years from now. I couldn't appreciate her more! Not only did she find the best home at the best price for us, but she planned a wonderful open house to help us in making that house our home. Thank you, Stacy! Your personal dedication were evident from the moment we first spoke!

Raquel Boos

I recently had the pleasure of working with Stacy. I was in the unique and difficult position of being an out-of-town seller and I needed expertise, honesty and dedication in a realtor. I found all of those qualities in Stacy. From our very first meeting, Stacy displayed incredible commitment. Stacy approached the sale of my house with the upmost integrity and transparency. There were times that I needed expertise and insight, and she always provided honest opinions and options. She understood my situation, and just as importantly, she understood the real estate market in Hamilton County. In one week's time, Stacy had the house under contract. I was able to keep negotiations on track following inspection due to Stacy's expertise. She was reassuring and understanding throughout the entire process.

Stacy's talents, along with her abilities to sell homes quickly and at the best possible price, set her apart from other realtors. Her efforts exceeded my expectations, and it is my pleasure to recommend Stacy.

Wendy A.

Kimsley Farrar was absolutely incredible! She understood our goals for purchasing our new home and went above and beyond to ensure that our purchase went smoothly. She was extremely knowledgeable and understanding of the market, trends and offered professional advice that was more than helpful. By far the best real estate agent I've ever worked with!

Sahar Montalvo

Kimsley, thank you again for being such a great realtor for us. We feel that you went above and beyond what was needed and we want you know how much your efforts are appreciated. Thanks again!

George & Susan Cherry

I would recommend Stacy to anyone buying or selling their home! She is probably the most knowledgeable and creative agent I have ever worked with. She was and continues to be constantly in touch with us, she was always available to answer questions, she worked to understand what we wanted and needed, she was very flexible about everything, and she was very easy to work with. I think Stacy is the
most outstanding real estate agent I have ever known. You can tell when someone is truly is in the right profession, and Stacy is the epitome of one of those people!

Joanne J.

Stacy helped sell our house, not only once, but twice after the original sale couldn't go through. And this all happened in a matter of weeks! Stacy was also able to navigate the sale quickly even though it involved a relocation company, adding extra steps to the process. Her assistance was invaluable and she gave professional but honest advice on the condition of our home and what would work to make it sell at a price that would work. Stacy was then helpful in providing contacts for realtors in the area where we were relocating to. Very impressed and thankful for her work.

Mark G.

Kristen is amazing - she was always helpful, worked with us closely throughout the process, and always kept our best interests in mind - even when we didn't directly tell her what we were thinking or wanting, she was able to understand what we needed. She is a wonderful person and Agent, and will always recommend her.

Matt & Angie D.

LOOOOVE Stacy. She was so helpful during our move. We moved from Florida to Indiana and we didn't know a sole, I asked around and her name came up over and over. So glad we went with the recommendation, she was fabulous to work with. She is still helping us and we moved into to our home 2 months ago!

Stephanie K.

Stacy has been phenomenal to work with. My husband and I met with Stacy on a recommendation from a friend and were very immediately impressed with her personality, approach, and drive. As first-time sellers, we sought advice from Stacy on necessary improvements and staging to help our home sell quickly. Stacy made great recommendations which were easy to follow, put together great marketing materials, and within 24 hours of listing, we had an offer. Stacy is hard-working, efficient, a pleasure to work with, and most importantly... she gets results.

Diane N.

Kristen was a great partner throughout our buying process. After she helped us look at several existing homes in multiple communities, we decided to have a home built by a national home builder. Kristen was invaluable in that process. She was actively involved with great suggestions during the initial negotiation, the options-selection, periodic inspections, and pre-closing walk throughs. Her experience as a kitchen designer proved quite helpful. She was particularly helpful during a difficult phase of color selection when the builder was being rather inflexible. She always had a positive attitude and made us feel we were a high priority!

Mike & Sharon B.

Stacy was on our side the whole way through the selling process even when things got a bit crazy! Really loved working with her and am so excited to continue working with her on building our new home!!

Tom & Kristen G.

Stacy helped us find a home that was perfect for our needs. She listened to our interests and made suggestions for areas/neighborhoods that complemented them nicely. She was prompt in scheduling showings and very responsive all around. We highly recommend her!

Jeff & Julie K.

We contacted Stacy this past Spring after we saw a neighboring home sell quickly during the Christmas holidays. Stacy was very knowledgeable on both our local neighborhood, as well as the market in general. She made good recommendations on getting our house ready for sale. She and her team were aggressive in marketing our home. She kept in contact with updates, followed up quickly to our questions, and pro-actively modified our marketing plan (after consulting with us) based on the feedback we received from open houses and showings. Our house sold quickly, and the closing process went smoothly. We would recommend Stacy to anyone looking to buy and/or sell a home.

Joe & Brenda G.

Stacy was professional, knowledgeable and efficient. She made our experience stress free. We would recommend her to everyone we know!

Julie K.

Our experience with Stacy Barry has been top-notch from start to finish! She was so very attentive in helping us find just what we were looking for. Her knowledge of the real estate market is unparalleled! Stacy and her team were available when we needed them and guided us through the purchase of our new home every step of the way.

Cherine P.

Stacy Barry was a pleasure to work with, never pushy, and always responding immediately and in a thorough
manner. The best Realtor we have ever worked with.

Brad D.

I worked with Kristen Yazel and she was very professional. Kristen Yazel was always friendly and helpful with any of our questions. Kristen did a great job promoting our house.

Brad & Holly O.

My husband and I sold our house in Indiana from Texas. Selling a house is stressful enough, but we were worried that it would be even worse being several states away, Stacy Barry took the stress out of the process. She did a great job marketing our house. Once we had an offer on the house she walked us through everything. She was always available for us. We wish that she could have been here in Texas as we are going through the process of buying our new house.

Matthew & Heather T.

Stacy did a fantastic job helping us sell our house. She walked us through the process, helped us find service providers, and kept us calm throughout. She was very organized and great about responding/following up timely. We will definitely work with Stacy again in the future.

Sara & Ian S.

We were in a unique situation because we were selling our house in Indianapolis after we had relocated out
of state. It had been listed with another broker for four months before we switched our listing to Stacy. The
major reason we decided to make a change was that we did not feel there was good communication and
consistent feedback. From the moment we decided to hire Stacy it was like a weight was lifted off our
shoulders. She was quick to respond to any and all questions/concerns we had and provided us with a
refreshed marketing strategy that did not include changing the price at all. Within weeks we had an offer and Stacy was great at managing the process from beginning to end. She went above and beyond in an effort to make us comfortable knowing we were unable to be there in person. My only regret was that we did not hire her sooner!

Stephanie & Jack N.

It was a whirlwind to say the least. We listed and sold our house in about 48 hours. We made an offer a week later on a new home. The process was very quick and easy with the help of Stacy Barry and her amazing team. I won't be moving for another 25-30 years, but I would highly recommend Stacy Barry to my friends and family. Thanks for all your hardwork and dedication to selling and buying homes. "

Chrissy S.

Stacy was wonderful, as always! We will never use another broker to buy or sell here in this area. Stacy's communication skills and knowledge level exceed that of any other agent we have ever worked with. We have now sold a home, bought land, and are building, all with Stacy's help. We will continue to use Stacy for all our real estate needs! She is truly amazing at her job!

Tom & Kristen G.

Stacy was fantastic to work with. Super quick to respond, impeccable knowledge of the area, great input to
some locations selected!! Stacy, you rock!!

Jack & Marcy B.

I would definitely recommend Kristen to my friends and family. She is very quick to respond to any needs,
friendly, and knowledgable! Kristen made the whole process very easy.

Sam C.

Stacy is dedicated to helping her client find the perfect housing for their lifestyle and budget. She is always
quick with following up with text messages, phone calls, and emails. That was a crucial service to my ever
changing work schedule.

I have worked with Stacy in the past. I love her honesty and straight forward approach. She gained my trust
with my first transaction and continued to further my faith in our second transaction. I look forward to utilizing
her expertise in the future.

Molly H.

Stacy was an absolute pleasure to work with. She helped us relocate from Chicago to the Indianapolis area which we were completely unfamiliar with. Stacy took the time to answer all of our questions, show us all of our options and the different areas. As first time home buyers, she was able to walk us through every step, and work with us from out of state. She found us the perfect house on our first marathon day of home searching, and we simply could not have done it without her. My husband and I will definitely use Stacy and her team again for any future moves.

Chris & Lyndsay

Stacy Barry and her team did an excellent job in selling my previous property. I was initially skeptical about
selling it in a timely fashion. Stacy gave us helpful hints on getting prepared and onto the market. The
online presence of the house was strong and we were able to sell our house in 2 days at full asking price.
The communication with Stacy and her team was great. Any questions I had were promptly answered. The
overall sales process went very smoothly, and I would recommend Stacy and her team to anyone.

Tj & Leah Johnson

Stacy proactively communicated throughout both processes of selling and buying our home. From the beginning Stacy was upfront and honest and set realistic expectations. Stacy's knowledge and business savvy created instant credibility with us and her advice was spot on throughout the entire process. When there are so many difficult decisions to be made, she helped us stay calm and focused on the end result. At our closing it was obvious she an organized, efficient agent who is always looking out for the best interest of her clients. I could not be more grateful for her help and support. Stacy, you truly always go above and

John & Alissa Bartenbach

Stacy went above and beyond. Stacy kept me in the loop when things would come on the market. With my extreme trust in her expertise, I asked her to walk through the condo and view. On her recommendation and without walking through myself, I made an offer and bought the condo. The closing was most unusual with the sellers not showing up until hours late, and not having moved out at the time of the final walk through. Stacy handled things with grace, honesty and knowledge--requesting a $400 cleaning fee from the sellers and to have them remove all trash. Though the sellers did comply with paying the cleaning fee--they did not remove the trash. (3 over full Rubbish carts) Trash was a big deal to me. Stacy hired someone to remove the trash--unfortunately that fell through as well. I ended up taking care of the trash....but it wasn't for a lack of trying on Stacy's part. Even after the sale, she continued to check in and make sure things were good or on their way to better.

My girlfriend and I moved to Indianapolis from Ohio August of 2014. We decided to rent due to not having a lot of time to look for a house. Had we known about Stacy Barry at this time, our decision would have been different.

After living in a 2 bedroom apartment for almost a year we decided it was time to look at buying. The timing was just right and we needed to find a realtor who knew what they were doing FAST!

After reading 10 or 20 raving reviews from her clients previous experiences we were able to connect with Stacy and sit down with her and her team. As first time home buyers we didn't know what to expect out of Stacy or the process. No worry though because Stacy was there to educate us as well as help us find our new home.

The first part in the process was setting us up on our personalized website that gave us new listings every day as soon as they hit the market. The listings were to match our criteria of price, area, number of bedrooms, etc. This was very helpful because it definitely made it easier for us to figure out what we had to have in a house and what we absolutely did not want.

After going out with Stacy to look at a few areas that we thought we were interested in, we were wrong and Stacy could tell we were no longer interested in that area. She suggested we drive around in 2 specific different areas that would probably help us find more of what we were looking for an she was dead on. Within a couple of days after adjusting our search criteria we were ready to look at houses in person.

Our first couple houses that we walked through were fixer uppers and Stacy was very honest when talking about the work that would need to be done. She brought our feet back to the ground and helped us understand that although we wanted to fix some things, we wouldn't want to fix all.

Two weeks after changing our search criteria we found a house that, from what we could tell, looked like exactly what we were looking for. The house hit the market at 3pm that day and by 4:30pm we had a walk through scheduled with Stacy for the next morning. I met Stacy at the house and as we were walking through it I told her that I wanted to put an offer. There were 3 other people viewing the house while we were there and we knew this would be a competitive situation.

That day I met with Stacy and her team again to put together an offer. She suggested how we should put our offer together but let us make the final decisions. With her suggestions we had an offer accepted later that night at 7pm. The house wasn't even not he market for 48 hours. Our offer was accepted over 2 others due to some of the suggestions Stacy made.

The process of finding a house we wanted and working with a realtor who could cater to our needs couldn't have gone smoother. I will be a client of Stacy's whether I'm buying or selling because she knows what she is doing and has a great team to back her up. Grade A experience!

Will B.

We have worked with Stacy several times, now she has helped us sell two houses and buy another one. She is amazing and I'll never use a different realtor again!

Ariel S.

Stacy was able to sell my house extremely fast and over list price! She took care of everything for me and made the process so easy!

Hilary Keyes

Stacy Barry and her team were excellent! Despite some difficulties in the process due to our first buyer's loan, she was able to sell our house for the maximum amount even when the market slowed down. Her suggestions on prepping the house for sale were phenomenal, and working with her team has been great. I was always able to get a hold of someone when I had questions, and all news about the sale was given to us right away. Whether you're buying or selling or both, Stacy is the Realtor you want to work with.

Ben & Holly S.

Stacy is a young (but experienced), energetic, knowledgeable, and professional sales person!! She provides you with high level service, using ALL of her marketing talents to get the job done! She takes great pride in her work and always makes sure you get the individual attention you and your property needs to be exposed, get offers, and sold! I would HIGHLY recommend Stacy to anyone that has realtor needs and definitely
would use her again!!
Len Birnbaum, President -- Homes By Woodland, Inc.

I know I know: EVERYONE has a realtor recommendation. But Stacy is absolute dynamite + worth her reputation and then some. She puts you first - in fact you'd never know she is dealing with other clients! - and walks you through each individual step with patience and professional guidance. Cannot say enough good things about her other than stop here and call her. You will never regret it.

Jeannine B.

Sam was recommended to me by a friend... and we are still friends! LOL We move a lot with the military and Sam is clearly the best agent we have ever had. Sam helped us find exactly what we were looking for Fishers. I strongly recommend him for your real estate needs.

David P.

Buying a house can be very stressful and time consuming. The Stacy Barry Team made everything a lot easier and a lot less stressful. Someone was always available to me if I had any questions or concerns. Thank you again.

Robin Quagliesi

Stacy is friendly and helpful. We had a great experience with her!

Steve & Emily L.

From the beginning introduction and presentation on how your team could help this couple on Flamingo Drive, the quality of work ethic and professionalism has never let us down. We are so thankful for your guidance, counseling and handholding. You kept us on track and helped us keep our eye on the big picture. Stacy - Thank You!

Words on this social media cannot express our gratitude for the patience, guidance, perseverance and professionalism we received from selling our lake home in Brown County to buying our "new to us" home in Hancock County. We have encountered many speed bumps since we got on this real estate bus back in August ’15, but Stacy and Julie Kniptash kept everything on track as within their power. The way Stacy presented how she would market our home on her very first visit, had us sold. Not being new to the real estate process, Stacy answered our questions and concerns with respect letting us know she would get the job done. Once our home sold, we got to meet Julie. She treated us as if we were her only folks looking at homes. Yes! Dirk we can look from the East to the West (all in one day). As she whispers, “keep track of what and where you want to be”. We felt like we had “broken up” when the closing finally came about. This team is the bomb! There are so many wonderful homes in and around central Indiana. This team is the best team so don’t hesitate to call them!

Dirk & Rhonda H.

Stacy is a close personal friend and former neighbor. She has handled all our previous real estate purchases/sales, so we knew she would be the best agent for our purchase in this transaction again.

Stacy is an expert on the Hamilton County/Carmel area and very knowledgeable on home values. She was able to negotiate a price for us which we were satisfied with, and has enable the home buying process to go as smoothly as possible.

Stacy is a very friendly and personable person, yet remains very professional in her approach. We felt very comfortable and confident in Stacy's expertise. She communicated with us in all matters in a very timely and clear manner.

Stacy and her whole team, especially Kristen Yazel, were wonderful to work with. Kristen did a fantastic job of helping with the communications and details of our home buying process.

Stacy is an excellent realtor. She has become an expert in her field, being very knowledgeable of every detail of the home buying process and being able to communicate those details in a clear, understandable manner. She is very friendly and personable, yet remains professional in her approach. All details of every step were immediately communicated to us via phone and/or email. The entire process could not have gone any smoother than it did, we were so very pleased by how the entire purchase went. Stacy will always be who we use and recommend to family and friends for real estate purchases and sales!

Nicole S.

Stacy was great! She helped me find a great house very quickly and made the entire transaction as smooth
as possible.

Julie is an exceptional agent. She is articulate in
communication, resourceful with her fact finding, and well versed in all things real estate. She does not rest until all questions are answered so that her clients are always informed as to where they are in the process. She is always sincere and upbeat. Spending time with her on your home search will be fun and exciting as she helps you focus on what you really need for your lives going forward in Central Indiana.

Dirk & Rhonda Hammond

My husband and I recently relocated to the Indianapolis area and are thrill we worked with Julie Kniptash to find our dream home! Her knowledge of the local market enabled us to find the perfect area for our family. She is reliable, professional, prompt, honest, and great to be around. If you're moving to the area, I highly recommend using Julie Kniptash as your trusted real estate expert.

Ray & Kristin Coyne

Stacy Barry made the process of buying and selling our home a breeze. For the sale of our old home, she helped us price just right, gave us staging tips and had a wonderful marketing plan. With her help, we were able to sell our home within the first couple days on the market! We bought a new build and Stacy was able to sit through meetings with us, give us tips and suggestions while choosing & designing the inside finishes of our home & she was a 3rd set of eyes while doing home inspections. She was in constant communication with us & our builder and quickly answered any questions we had. She was also able to point us in the direction of contractors & inspectors when we needed them. Stacy is extremely professional and friendly-- even our kids loved her! Thanks for all the hard work you did for us, Stacy!

Jenny Siukola

Stacy is amazing! I had the pleasure of working with Stacy on purchasing my first home and she always went out of her way to support and advocate for me during this process. She is incredibly knowledgeable about every aspect of the home buying process and is able to offer you great advice and guidance. Stacy was great at teaching me about the home buying process, helping me understand the best options, and was always available to answer any questions I had. Not only did Stacy go above and beyond by communicating on my behalf to all parties involved, her expertise and efficiency made this process smooth and simple. Stacy is very personable and you can tell she genuinely cares about helping you find your perfect home.

Jackie Moeller

Our daughter is a realtor in Marietta, GA. She recommended Stacy Barry very highly. Stacy Barry is a very personable as well as a professional realtor. She communicates very well & often. She is timely, reliable, and a good listener. We do not plan to sell any additional real estate in the foreseeable future, but if we do then we would have Stacy Barry as our realtor.

Shelly Friedman

Stacy Barry was our most valuable asset throughout our home-buying process. She was always available, but was never overbearing. She was incredibly knowledgeable regarding the area in which we were looking. She was an absolute saint when it came to helping with my two small children, who had to accompany me to every showings and every meeting throughout the process. Stacy changed the home-buying from an intimidating experience to an enjoyable one.

Darcie Speicher

John & Darcie Speicher

Julie was top-notch! I felt comfortable as a first-time home buyer. She went above and beyond to make sure all of my concerns were addressed and questions were answered. She was also very accommodating as far as meeting times, phone conversations, and access in general. I am so thankful Julie was there to help me through this intimidating process!


Claire Voorhees

Being a first time home buyer this whole process was very intense. Stacy brought a sense of calmness to it. The market was moving very fast. Stacy was very honest with us in what she thought would be a good offer in this hyper competitive market. She kept us on task and always accessible. Although it was late at night, Stacy drafted up an offer at 10pm and we were able to close the deal the next morning.

Aaron Watson

Aaron Watson

Stacy is an amazing realtor. She goes above and beyond to make sure that her clients are happy. Stacy helped us to sell our first house quickly and find a new home that we love! She was with us for every step of this process and was always available to answer questions or hear concerns. I would highly recommend Stacy to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area!

Leslie Catlin

We loved working with Stacy! My wife and I just purchased our first home and the process could not had gone better. Stacy is easy to work with and very down to earth. Stacy referred us to our lender Bryant Gatz, of Fairway mortgage. She told us that his team would take excellent care of us. After meeting with Bryant I knew Fairway was the lender for us. They were highly detailed and were excellent communicating with us through the process. The day before Valentine's Day my wife and I found a house we wanted to see. I called Stacy and she got us a showing on Valentines Day! Bryant took time out of his weekend to run numbers so we were ready if this was the one. Stacy met us on Valentine's Day, showed us the house and wrote an offer for us that day! After we were under contract, Team Gatz took control and made the lending process easier than we ever imagined. Most people say buying a house is stressful, but Stacy and her contacts made the process seamless and stress free. My wife and I couldn't be happier buying our first home from Stacy.

Charlie Babcock

Thanks to Kimsley we didn't feel like first time home buyers -- we felt like pros because she always was
there for us, never left us alone and she always had the answers. Thank you Kimsley Farrar. We appreciate your help and support during this process.

Chris C.

Stacy was professional, able to answer all of my questions, and we got our dream house! I couldn't have been blessed with a better Realtor. Her entire team is wonderful as well. She was able to get me a great referral for every extra service we needed.

Sarah B.

We had received great reviews about Stacy Barry from a close friend. We value personal recommendations above all else and
we couldn't have chosen a better agent.

Stacy did an amazing job and was very attentive to our needs. She was incredibly patient with us while answering our seemingly never ending questions. She managed the entire selling and buying processes for us beautifully and helped place us in our forever home. We couldn't have been happier and are so grateful to Stacy for all that she did for us. We cannot recommend her highly enough!

Bill and Natalie Kreider

"Kimsley was great . She is a very hard worker who doesn't give up when things don't work out. She has a very positive attitude which helps everyone . We give her our highest recommendation .
She is knowledgeable and also helpful."

Larry and Maggie Riggs

Sam is the utmost professional and very knowledgeable in the industry. We will always use Sam.

Vince V.

"Sam and the entire Barry-Schernekau Team were always available for showings and happy to answer all of our questions. They worked hard to make sure we were knowledgeable about every step of the home buying process. There were multiple offers on the home we bought as well as some tough inspections issues but we never had to worry because Sam always protected our interests and kept the deal moving forward. Sam's confidence and expertise in the industry made for a low stress and enjoyable first time home buying experience!"

James Plyley

Stacy was absolutely amazing from the moment she first met with my wife and I. She made recommendations on what immediate improvements to our home would help it move quickly off the market and would get us the most bang for the buck. We had multiple offers within a week of listing and Stacy was there to walk us through fast paced process every step of the way.

Stacy was very responsive and is not shy to about giving you her honest opinion. I couldn't be happier with Stacy and team of professionals.

Nathan & April H.

Once again we were 100% pleased with the Stacy Barry group, specifically Kristen Yazel. Kristen was always
available to answer our questions. She even met with a chimney contractor when we were unable to do so
ourselves. We had a non-traditional situation when we were selling (we were out of state for part of the
process, including the closing) and Kristen handled everything professionally and perfectly. Kristen is very
knowledgeable about the area's real estate market and helped us pick the perfect selling price for our home. I
would recommend the Stacy Barry group without any hesitation!!

Miranda H.

"We recently relocated from California and I found Stacy while searching the internet for the top realtors in Indianapolis. Stacy's profile really stood out to me. Finding a good school district was a top priority for me and Stacy's experience as a past teacher was an added bonus. I chose Stacy due to her impressive resume, excellent reviews and superior knowledge of the area. I decided to make a last minute trip to Indianapolis and had 36 hours to find a house. Stacy carved out her entire weekend to show me every possible option and helped me narrow down the areas that would be a good fit for our family. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area and we found the most amazing house in the perfect neighborhood. Although we had spent a short amount of time together, Stacy seemed to know my needs better than I could have imagined. I had originally ruled out a house from our search but Stacy kept the second showing on the books and that's the house we ended up purchasing. Stacy is diligent, detailed, responsive, patient and her market expertise is unmatched. She has an extensive network and has provided many great recommendations for contractors, painters, pool service providers, housekeepers, etc. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. "

Amanda Schrage

"Julie Kniptash was extremely helpful in finding us our home. After we put in an offer for our home her value went through the roof. With negotiating price, setting up inspections, following up with the sellers agent and offering her expertise every step of the way. We are extremely grateful for her help and services."

Ryan Newman

"Julie was top-notch! I felt comfortable as a first-time homebuyer. She went above and beyond to make sure all of my concerns were addressed and questions were answered. She was also very accommodating as far as meeting times, phone conversations, and access in general. I am so thankful Julie was there to help me through this intimidating process!!"


Sam was awesome to work with. We were moving to an unfamiliar part of town and Sam was very helpful in the knowledge of the area. He was always available to help and answer any of our questions.

Jake & Rache

We are so thankful for Stacy! Buying your first home is scary and intimidating. Stacy was with us every step of the way. She was so patient with all of our questions and she really helped us understand every part of the home buying process. Stacy has a lot of great connections as well from contractors to mortgage brokers. We would highly recommend Stacy Barry to anyone looking for a great realtor!


"Stacy Barry is outstanding! She is very knowledgeable about the area and the current state of the industry. She was always accessible and turned all items around quickly. Stacy is professional, extremely helpful, and enjoyable to work with. "

Lori S.

"Stacy is the best around. She has sold several houses for friends. I wouldn't have gone to anyone else but her when the time came to sell my house! "

Andra C.

As I said in an earlier question, Stacy Barry was always doing something that was on the cutting edge of marketing and she did it in a fun way. We were spoiled with her "entertainment" if you will.

Stacy Barry is quick on action items. Her "need for speed" put the fire in me as well and made me want to take care of things asap.

We will recommend Stacy Barry to anyone who might be looking for a professional but friendly realtor. It helped that we already knew Stacy as a friend but I think she would make just about anyone feel that they were already friends with her as well."

Dan & Betsy B.

"Stacy Barry took the time to really understand what we were looking for in a new home. We took a long time to make a final decision but she was very patient with us and completely understanding of what a big decision it was for us. She is very knowledgeable and knows the housing market here in the Indianapolis area really well. Stacy was super responsive and professional, I would absolutely go to her again for anything I need in the real estate business."

Jim P.

"Could not imagine the process being any better.

Stacy would respond to us any time of the day or even at night. Aside from all of the positive attributes listed above, her willingness to work and help whenever we needed her is what made us so comfortable with the process of buying our first house. I hope she's still selling when we're ready for our next home!"

Jon T.

"After meeting with Stacy Barry I knew she was the one who could sell our house. She was very prepared and informative with the stats of our neighborhood. We were very
very impressed and would recommend Stacy Berry to everyone. She had the energy and drive to do what it takes to make your dreams come true!"

Vicki T.

"Stacy Berry is a great realtor. She's always available to answer any questions we might have and always provided quick follow up to answer questions. She helped us sell our house in the time frame we were hoping for and provided great recommendations to contractors to help us get our work done quickly.

She also helped us build our current home and worked as an amazing middle man between us and our builder. If you are hoping to build a home, I would absolutely recommend using Stacy to help guide you through the process."

Michael A.

"As a first time home buyer, I did not realize everything that went into buying a home. Kristen made the experience easy and enjoyable by going over the entire process before it even started. Her experience, knowledge of the area, and personality made what could be a very stressful time a fun time. I will highly recommend Kristen Yazel to anyone looking to buy or sell a house."

Clint R.

"Stacy and team did an awesome job of finding and negotiating the perfect home for my husband and I. We didn't really know what we wanted, but they listened to our needs and delivered the best house in the exact neighborhood we needed. I would highly recommend Stacy to anyone who wants professional and high quality results."

Miguel C.

"Stacy was wonderful to work with. Professional. Responsive. Thorough and Organized. Everything you could want during a big change to a family such as selling a home. She provided great feedback to help us have the home ready and sold within days. This is the 5th business transaction we have had as a family with Team Barry and each one is better than the one before."

Carina L.

"Kristen was everything we could hope for in an agent. She was very knowledgeable about every aspect of the home buying process. Kristen always had a quick and truthful answer to any and all questions that we had. We would highly recommend Kristen to anyone who is looking for a realtor."

Wes E.

"We can't recommend Stacy Barry enough. This was our first home buying experience, and Stacy made the process so painless. She was incredibly helpful at helping us identify our wants and needs in a home, and then tailoring our search to fit those criteria. Once we found a home we fell in love with, Stacy did all the heavy lifting of negotiations, and contract drafting. She followed up with us on a regular basis throughout the entire closing process to make sure everything was on track. It was very important to us as young homebuyers to have someone there with us who was not too pushy, and Stacy was perfect. We never felt pressured, and Stacy genuinely seemed to just want to help us to find a house we would be happy in. She was always professional, patient, and kind. If we ever buy another home (and I don't think we will for a long time) we will definitely use Stacy again."

Joanne R.

"This was our second time using Stacy to sell our house as well as buy a new house. In our opinion there is no one better in the business! Her communication is amazing. There was never a time we didn't know what to do or how to do it. She sends reminders and instructions pertaining to all aspects of the process. You can truly tell Stacy loves what she's doing and in turn that makes a somewhat difficult, stressful process much easier! We HIGHLY recommend Stacy and her team if you want an easy, stress free buying or selling process!!"

Michael K.

"Was very knowledgable and knew exactly what I needed. Also very quick to reply and provide suggestions to save money. Kristen was great!"

Paulos G.

"This process was extremely intimidating at first. Kristen made us feel like none of our questions were dumb and made it a fun experience. I'm a pretty impatient person and Kristen never seemed irritated but all of my questions.

Kristen did a great job of listening to us and explaining the process. It was obvious she did her research and exhausted her resources.

Kristen was amazing through it all! She consistently communicated with both the buyers and sellers agents. She did a great job of updating us on things. "

Sarah E.

"Lee, was everything and more we could have asked for. He was available 24/7, and always responded quickly. We could text / call / e-mail and everything was answered. If I am buying a house, or selling I will be looking to Lee to help us out again.

Thank you!!"

Matthew L.

"Kristen is a pleasure to work with and if we ever buy a house again, she is the only broker we would ever work with. We have recommended her and will continue to do so because we are nothing but pleased with the quality of the service that she provided.

She was patient and kind and always made us feel like we were their first and only priority. Her negotiation skills and knowledge of the market are great. She was on time, reliable, professional at all times and truly went above and beyond the call of duty.

Kristen not only met our expectations, she exceeded them!

Thank you!!"

Nathan H.

"We enjoyed our home buying experience. Kristen was very helpful in getting our offer selected especially when there was an offer already on the table. The entire process was smooth. There was always open communication throughout the process that gave us the confidence that we were in good hands.

Kristen has all the qualities listed above. We enjoyed working with Kristen.

We couldn't make it to Indiana to see the home so Kristen did a walkthrough for us and took videos of the home that helped us decide to make an offer on it. "

Prithviraj G.

"Stacy was supportive, knowledgeable and a great team player for our home purchase. She helped get everything accomplished in under 30 days and made sure everyone involved was on task - including us! We could rest easy knowing she was tracking all the moving pieces, and helping us think ahead to what we needed after we got into the house. We're so thankful for all Stacy did to make our first home buying experience amazing. Kudos to Stacy! We would highly recommend her and her team!"

Marissa G.

"As a first time home buyer, I had no clue where to start. Lee Skiles made every aspect of finding a home easy. He was honest and trustworthy. Very easy to get a hold of, patient, and respectful. We appreciated how easy Lee made it all."

Samantha B.

"We have worked with Stacy before, back in 2009. She was excellent then and excellent this time around also. She is trustworthy, organized and always in constant contact with us about everything (throughout the entire process). She has a great sense of humor, and I love how she offers her 'official realtor' opinion and then her 'what I would do' opinion. She keeps it real. Thanks Stacy!"

Jeanmarie W.

"Kristen was always there with either a phone call, text, or e-mail. She always responding very promptly and helped us with any questions or concerns we may have had. We always felt like we were her only client (Even though we new we weren't) but she made us feel that way!

We loved every aspect of working with Kristen and Century 21 Sheetz. She was professional, prompt, and always there for us when we needed her!"

Andrew G.

"This is our second time working with Kristen and we could not have been more pleased with the results. Her advice and guidance helped us to sell our house 6 days after listing and find a great home to help solve our commuting woes. From our first meeting to discuss a potential sale to closing, she could not have been nicer or more helpful throughout the process. We will definitely recommend her to any friends and family looking to sell or buy a home here in the greater Indianapolis area."

Brian K.

"Kristen was everything we could hope for in an agent. She was very knowledgeable about every aspect of the home buying process. Kristen always had a quick and truthful answer to any and all questions that we had. We would highly recommend Kristen to anyone who is looking for a realtor."

Wesley E.

"Stacy was great to work with. She knowledgeable of the local market and knew just how to price our house. Our house was under contract in a little over a week for more than our asking price! The rest of the process was made very easy by Stacy and her team. I will definitely hire her again if we need any real estate help in Indiana."

Lacy P.

"I had a great time working with Kristen! It is very overwhelming being a first time home buyer and she did everything she could to help things make sense and that made me comfortable with the process and settling on a house. Anyone would be lucky to work with her!"

Derek Dau

"I could not be more pleased with our realtor Stacy Barry and her team in how they made the selling of our home easy and stress-free. We had high expectations having worked with Stacy in the past and she continues to deliver, amaze, impress, and exceed our already very high expectations. We had an accepted offer within 48 hours of listing. It is great when you have someone working for you that is truly operating at a higher level than everyone else. We will always be clients of hers because we want the very best representing us in such important transactions."

Matt D.

"I was thrilled to be able to work directly with Stacy Barry on the sale of my previous home and the purchasing of my new home, which closed today. For someone with Stacy's sterling reputation, experience and deep market knowledge, what surprised and thrilled me most was her patience and understanding. She is exactly who you want on your side, captaining the process and advising you every step of the way. I couldn't imagine doing it without her! Thank you, Stacy!!!"

Damie A.

Stacy is a well versed, hard working and honest agent. Her care of doing what is right is her business model. I trust her so well that she is often a recomended agent when asked and has never failed to succeed

Warren Harrling

Sam, my purpose for this correspondence is to thank you for your tremendous hospitality during my recent relocation visit. You certainly went beyond the call of duty and met my every need. Your preparation and attention to detail was obvious, and I was appreciative of the effort. Sam, your professionalism was apparent.
