Sophia Barry got started in real estate in May of 2020.
Having started in sales at an early age, with a background in business ownership, paired alongside an innate entrepreneurial spirit- this industry was waiting for her, she just didn't know it!
Having sold her boutique Scentsory Bath and Body in August '19 prior to Covid, Sophia pursued the opportunity to explore a career in real estate that many had suggested for years- (her paternal grandmother had been an agent in the early 1960's.)Drawing on experience from Northwestern Mutual as an Associate Financial Representative for consultative sales and servicing, boutique retail management, merchandising and marketing, real life experience in business ownership with training from the Small Business Development Center and UWM extension programs, she hit her stride immediately.
Sophia quickly won awards at Shorewest, her first firm, for Rookie of the Month state and company-wide for most listings and volume sold in her first 3 months as an agent. Having sold everything from a luxury listing in Shorewood to a 10-unit apartment commercial building in Hartford in just a few months- she left Shorewest and moved to Keller Williams to expand her personal branding and footprint.
The method was always simple- listen to the clients, serve them well, and exceed expectations, consistently. With over two years as a streamlined Team of two, Sophia Barry and Blake Hassler her licensed assistant and fellow agent, Sophia has maintained a spot in the Top Ten agents at Keller Williams Milwaukee Northshore without fail, and even enjoyed the number one spot in January of 2021, always ranked against peers with decades of experience and more substantial spheres. Danny Sin recently joined and Sophia looks forward to growing SBRG with more like-minded agents.
While the rankings have been a driving motivator- the ultimate reason why Sophia works as hard as she does- is to make a real difference in the lives of her clients by performing at an incredibly high standard, setting the bar for client service. Her largest sense of satisfaction comes from the many heartfelt reviews from clients and the ways she has been able to help others through what can be a stressful or challenging journey, bringing joy, care and attention to detail to each client along the way.
Compass is an exciting new chapter for her, as she is now elevating her license to that of a Broker, opening an office in her birthplace and hometown of Shorewood, growing her Team and scaling her business, at the best firm in the industry that aligns with her values and the culture of Sophia Barry Realty Group.
Her family, especially her children, are the reasons why she is passionate about performing at a high level in an industry where there is no glass ceiling and the sky truly is the limit. Compass is the perfect fit and Sophia looks forward to providing the benefits of this exclusive brokerage to her Team Members and Clients.
Sophia grew up in Shorewood and has lived in Whitefish Bay, Fox Point, Glendale, Mequon, Cedarburg, Oconomowoc, Thiensville and is now settled back in her original home town of Shorewood- so she knows the North Shore and Lake Country well; but she has, and will go anywhere to assist and educate clients in the home buying and selling process.
