“It’s the most wonderful time…
Sam has been a licensed Realtor for 13 years and also has ten years experience working on a multitude of construction projects. He has managed heavy infrastructure installations as well as final small building details. This wide-range experience transcends perfectly into the real estate world and becomes significant “value added” to Sam’s clients. Looking at homes objectively, Sam diligently looks for defects that are sometimes not observed by even qualified inspectors, so that he can prepare and represent his clients interests in the best way possible. Sam has a great sense of humour and professionalism that puts people at ease, thus removing a lot of unnecessary stress attributed to buying or selling a home. When he is not with clients, Sam enjoys fishing, golfing, yoga and staying fit.
“Sam Barry provided us with exceptional service. Within minutes of meeting Sam we felt we could trust him to guide us in such an important step in our lives. He created a portal of homes tailored to exactly we wanted, and changed it as often as we changed our criteria. This made the initial searching phase so easy.
No matter what house we wanted to see or when we wanted to see it he made it happen. He drove all over the city helping us find our perfect home.
When it came to closing he was extremely thorough and efficient and made sure everything went off without a hitch.
His honesty and genuine nature made for speedy and enjoyable process and he always had us feeling hopeful and assured. Sam is extremely professional and down to earth – he was there to help us find our dream home and it was evident!
We will definitely be using his services again should we ever decide to move. 10/10 would recommend to anyone!”– Jena Lynde-Smith

“As first time home buyers, the whole experience of buying a house was exciting, nerve-wracking and intimidating. But working with Sam, he made it fun and far less stressful. He asked the right questions to help understand what it was we were looking for (even when we weren’t sure ourselves!) and he only showed us houses he knew we’d be interested in and that were in our price range. He helped guide us through the whole process from start to finish and we could not be happier with our new home! And if we ever decide to sell, we know we’ll be contacting Sam!”– Holly Duggan
“We were very impressed with many aspects of working with Sam. We felt that he really wanted us to be satisfied with our purchase and not just trying to sell a house
He really took the time to understand our needs, and at no point did we ever feel that we were being pressured in any other direction.
When we viewed a property with him, he looked very carefully and thoroughly through the property and helped us to identify any possible future problem areas. His experience and knowledge showed in what he was able to highlight for us and his understanding of the buying process.
Finally, he was always prompt and prepared for all of our viewings and meetings. I would highly recommend working with Sam to anyone.”– Peter Atkinson
“I’ve used Samuel Barry as my agent for a few different properties in Orleans and the service has been excellent each time.

He’s also very knowledgable about home improvements and we appreciated his insight when viewing homes. When it came time to buy and sell our home he was very organized and efficient. We received practical advice about staging and our house sold in 3 days. I would definitely recommend Locke to anyone buying or selling in Ottawa.”– Rachel Carrara“It had been 10 years since I’d bought a house and I’d never sold one before. Sam and the rest of the Locke Real Estate team helped sell my house in 1 day for full asking price. They also helped me find houses that might interest me very quickly and conveniently with e-mail alerts.
Sam was professional, warm, available, reliable, punctual, and knowledgeable. We know who to go to now for all our real estate needs. Thanks for all your help!”– Serge Binette“Samual Barry is an awesome Real Estate Agent. He has helped us buy 2 different properties now and I would never consider using anyone else. He has extensive experience in both the construction industry and the real estate industry, and so is able to spot issues or weaknesses in the construction and condition of houses, and he is not afraid to point them out to his buyers. He took the time to learn exactly what our wants and needs were for the properties we were buying, and went out of his way to find properties that matched those. He took us to so many properties, and never lost patience with our pickiness. He was always on time for showings, and was very quick to respond to our texts and inquiries. Sam is very professional and just an overall nice guy as well. After we bought our first property from him he actually paid for a guided Muskie fishing trip for us. I highly recommend Samual Barry for all your real estate needs.”– Linda Stengel

I would not have been able to buy my first house without all of the time and effort they were willing to spend with me.”– Adrian Simon“We started the process of selling our house by interviewing three real estate agents and we chose Samuel Barry (Locke Real Estate) to be our agent. We had a great experience; Samuel is an excellent agent who really cares about his client.

We highly recommend Samuel and the Locke team, their service is exceptional, they are bilingual, which was a big plus for us, everyone we met and dealt with was really nice and friendly. To sell our house Samuel provided staging, professional photos and a 360 video.
