I have known Barry since the early 1990′s. He has been a great friend as well as business colleague. I have found him to be very proactive and keen to find solutions to issues. He is always looking to work with people to provide the most sensible and profitable solutions. Above all he carries out his work with a smile on his face.

We were on opposite sides of a complex sale transaction, with Barry representing a UK financial institution that had been taken over the by the govt attempting to sell a deeply challenged office building in New York City. Within the limits of his difficult assignment, Barry was professional, well-informed, straight-forward and responsive. And a pleasure to deal with on a personal level. We are obviously biased since we were on the buy side, but I think he did very well by his client.

Barry’s approach to strategic problems begins with penetrating insight but is followed through with careful and relevant analysis and concludes with compelling presentations. Throughout this process he carefully develops the confidence and trust of the client.

I had the pleasure of working with Barry Gilbertson on a complicated cross border transaction involving commercial real estate in the US. He worked closely with asset managers and the Board of Directors, of which I was a member. Although Barry’s expertise is in asset management and marketing of properties, his capabilities span a broad spectrum of client needs. He thinks strategically and has a rare combination of leadership, business acumen and people skills needed to drive successful outcomes. Barry adds immense value to his cases. He is unselfish with his time and is a terrific person to work with.
Sharon Manewitz, Senior Vice President & Executive Director, Rock US Holdings, New York
Barry was one of the most effecient and knowlegable professionals I have worked with. He had an exceptional understanding of his business and used lateral thinking in areas which were complicated and required a non rigid approach. I have no hesitation of recommending him and will certainly use his expertise again. He is also a charming man with great integrity.
