My name is Barry Johnson, I have been married for over 30 years to my beautiful wife, Norvella. We have two adult young adult children and a crazy Shih Tzu named Bandit. I love to cook, write, and I'm a huge Chicago sports fan.
I have been in this business for over 20 years and my perspective changed about 3 years into my career. I knew "what" I was doing, but I didn't know "why" I was doing it. One day, I received my paycheck and realized that I was making an excellent living. And to be honest, I wasn't really working hard or risking my life, like the two people that I took an application for that day.
One client worked eight hours as a housekeeper at a hotel and when she got off, she drove an hour to work another six hours at another hotel. She worked over 14 hours a day, took care of 3 kids, and made about $35,000.00 after working all of those hours.
The second client was a disabled Vet and was on disability income. I realized that both of these people deserved my best because of their sacrifice, and from that day forward, I began to look at people and not numbers.
I treat everyone the same regardless of credit, income, position, or the price of the home that they want to purchase. I believe that everyone deserves an opportunity to be a homeowner. My passion to create homeowners and my purpose is life is to make that happen for as many people as possible.
