If you’re considering listing your Naples home and in need of a quick sale at a great price, then look no further than Barry Hoey of Downing Frye.
My wife and I interviewed 5 agents, and while a couple others may have been good, Barry brought to the table an extra something just didn’t resonate as strongly in the others - a strong sense of ethics, familiarity with the nuances of our location in the Estates, and a commitment to ensuring that our needs were met.
After reviewing the marketplace on our own through various websites, we had a list price in mind. Barry quickly saw that we were undercutting the value, and suggested that we list it higher. Dubious and apprehensive, we agreed. A wonderful video ad was created using the new drone technology to fly over the property, as well as some very sharp and flattering still photos of the inside.
Within 4 days we received a full price offer.
While some may think in this age of instant information that the listing agent doesn’t matter, it does. Barry was firm with the buyer’s agent, and ensured that any issues were resolved quickly and to our satisfaction.
Anyone can hire an agent, who can stick a sign in your yard and add you to the MLS. Barry was the only agent who started off by telling us that “we were a team that would list and sell the property together”.
If you want just an agent, then hire anybody. But if you want a partner you can trust, then go with Barry.

Dear Mr. Hoey,
It is my pleasure to express our appreciation while purchase a Condo in Naples Florida. It was an unforgettable experience for the last 2 months.
From the day one we first met in your office (much more comfortable then I saw you on the web ^_^), you go through with us MLS listing slide show & print bunch of match Condo. The following day you already made several appointments, and picked up from where we live & drive us to see those locations which we priority choose in 34116 zip code. Still remember you ask us why we would like this area? Anyway, you respect our decision and listen to our opinion. You are so patient and trust worthy. After we made 1st offer for a condo in Fairways at Par One, you really did fantastic job by getting the paper work done quickly the same day. What a wonderful person you are! You really care about people’s time & did all your best to help. As we’re happy waiting for victorious closing, the seller changed his mind and breach the contract, that’s a shock. You then introduce us to the Title Co lawyer and get legal advise for free, we really appreciated. After days of disappointment, we even want go back to New York. You never leave or forsake us by helping us looking for similar Condo in the same area. Thank you for helping us put first obstacle behind finally all worthwhile. Now we dramatically become a landlord from this rentable Condo, so satisfied and well done. It is really our pleasure to served by you as our Agent. I’ll definitely recommend friends and relatives to look for you for their Real Estate needs, you are such a honest & responsible person with a caring heart.
Now we no longer customer but friends, we wish you all the best. Have a Prosperous New Year! Thanks so much!

At the beginning of year 2014, my wife and I were in search of a condo in Florida. We thus began our searches on the East coast of the Florida during our wintry holidays. We met some real-estate agents who showed us condos.
Then friends spoke to us about the West coast of the Florida, more specifically Naples. We informed me that this place is much more safer than the East coast and my searches on the Internet confirmed this information. We thus went to Naples and liked this city. This place is magnificent and very different. We do not see big tower there and people seem to live with a less stressful rhythm.
Then we put ourselves in search of condos and the first agent we met is Mr. Barry Hoey. What a fortunate day! Immediately contacted, Barry Hoey set to work and showed us several places. Unfortunately, our holidays ended and we had to leave Florida without having found our condo. Already, we had understood the importance of the real estate agent. Barry Hoey inspired us confidence contrary to certain agents as we had met.
Mr. Hoey continued to send us listings and we kept in touch by email. In April, I returned in Naples with several condos to visit. Barry Hoey took care with showing me all those which I wished to see. Punctual, lying in wait constant to satisfy my requests, he is very fast to answer an e-mail. My wife and I were very impressed by Mr. Hoey's professionalism. During this journey, we made a bid on a condo and this one was accepted. I returned to Quebec immediately after to have made the offer. Barry took care of all the procedures and sent me documents to be signed by Internet.
I have a whole confidence in this gentleman. During our first meeting, he immediately inspired us confidence. When we are in thousands of miles, it is important to have somebody on whom to trust. I did not know Barry Hoey previously and he took care of our business as if they were his.
Barry Hoey is much more that a real estate agent for us, even the sale concludes, we remain in contact and he still makes us several services. During our next journey, it is certain that we shall visit our friend Barry.
We recommend Mr. Barry Hoey to whoever looks for a serious real estate agent who will know how to guide you in your search and take care of your interests.

Here’s our review:
We hired Barry Hoey and Kim Zuponcic as our selling agents in March 2020.
Kim is an accomplished realtor and has extensive experience in staging a home for maximum appearance. We couldn’t believe how great our house looked when she was done.
Barry Hoey (Team Hoey) is certified in every area of real estate, including international real estate. He aggressively marketed our home and used all forms of media to maximize exposure. Our first open house was a complete success and we had a full price offer in less than 2 weeks.
Barry is straight from Ireland and has a beautiful Irish accent. He and Kim make a great team and made us feel like we were their #1 priority.
We highly recommend them to anyone for their real estate needs.

To whom it may concern:
I can't begin to say how fortunate we were to find and select Barry Hoey to represent us in the sale of our Naples property. From the first time we met him, we were impressed with his professionalism, knowledge of the Naples and surrounding area and his dedication to details. We interviewed several prospective agents and Barry was by far the most personable and helpful agent we had met.
Our sale was remote as we live in Michigan and throughout the selling cycle, Barry was in constant contact with updates, reviews of showings, thorough discussions of offers and we never felt pressured to make a fast decision, but listened to his advice and guidance.
After several consecutive open houses, I asked Barry to hire someone to vacuum the floors and clean the bathrooms to keep everything presentable to prospective buyers. To my surprise, Barry did the vacuuming, cleaned the bathrooms and swept out the garage himself. He would not let me pay him and said he was glad to help. In addition, someone knocked down our mail box and Barry found a contractor for us that did the repairs, saving us worry and anxiety on how to get it replaced from Michigan
This is the type of service over and above what most people expect in a Realtor. Our home sold quickly and Barry brought us a cash offer that met our expectations and his guidance through the closing was invaluable.
Without hesitation, we would highly recommend Barry Hoey to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the South Florida area. Downing-Frye is fortunate to have someone like Barry Hoey on their staff.

We were looking for a Real Estate agent to help us put our house in the market for selling. It was our third attempt to sell the house and we were a little skeptical at the beginning.
Barry and his team are very professional , dedicated and committed. They guide you step by step making the process simple and fast.
Our house was sold in a record time and for a price much higher than what it was listed for.
We had a great experience with the Hoey Team and that is why we highly recommend them to help you with your Real Estate needs.

We recently sold our home in Golden Gate Estates and bought another home with the help and guidance of Barry Hoey and Kim Zuponcic of EXP Realty in Naples, FL.
From the beginning we knew we had hired the right realtors when we saw the listing pictures of our home.
Barry’s photography and marketing skills are exceptional and beyond comparison to the work of many other realtors. Indeed, our house sold after the first showing!
After selling, with Kim’s help, we began an earnest hunt for a home closer to Naples. She arranged all of the showings of homes she knew met our criteria and found us just the right property that more than met our needs.
After our offer was accepted, Kim’s negotiations and expertise made it possible for us to close both properties on the same day! We had many steps in this process to get to our goal, but Kim guided us through it all the way.
We highly recommend Barry Hoey and Kim Zuponcic to anyone either buying or selling (or selling AND buying) a home.

I want to write to you to commend you for all the things you did for me in selling my property so quickly. When I first decided to sell the Naples house I contacted another realtor who wanted me to replace the roof and fix some of the other things that needed to be updated. I then sought to contact you.
You met me at the property at 850 22nd Street in the Golden Gates Estates area close to Everglades Avenue. Right away I knew that you were the realtor I needed.
You explained how advantageous it would be for me not to re-roof or do any updating but to sell the house and 6 acres “as is.” You explained why this was the best way for me to sell the house and the acreage and you were correct.
I trusted you completely to do the best for me…and you did! I don’t know if it was because your Irish mother taught you to be friendly and honest, but for whatever she did when you were growing up she should get some of the credit when you sell or help people buy a piece of property.
Of course your Irish bough certainly is not a detriment to your likeability!
I was very impressed that whenever I needed to ask you a question you were almost always available to talk on the phone, and if not available, you always called me back within a short time.
At the beginning…before you even listed the property you were with me to help with the discussions with the renters whom I eventually needed to evict so I could list with you.
And…you sold my home and property in such a short time to a man who paid cash…and I received more money than I had expected!
I would definitely recommend you to anyone I know.
You have even kept in contact with me after the sale to make sure that I am happy with how things are now…and I am.
Thank you. You are awesome!!!

Re: Realtor Barry Hoey
To whom it may concern:
Barry Hoey, a realtor with Downing Frye Realty recently handled the sale of a duplex for us on ........... in Naples. It was a very pleasant experience from start to finish, resulting in a selling price higher than our listing price. Barry gave us excellent advice, kept us fully informed and provided us with comprehensive documentation every step of the way. We think he must work 24 hours of the day since we often got e-mail from him close to midnight.
He is very dedicated and detail-oriented. He identified and corrected errors in the Title Company’s final documents the day before we were to sign and although we assured him we did not expect him to attend the signing, he was there. He is personable, knowledgeable and professional and we loved his Irish accent.

We have had the good fortune to have the help and professional services of Naples, Florida, Downing-Frye Realtor, Barry Hoey in our search to purchase a residence in Naples.
Our 'long distance' search, conducted from our home base in New Jersey, required Barry's competent skills to help us be successful. By his preselecting properties that fit our criteria and budget, showing them to our trusted friend who viewed these properties in our stead, and sharing his expert opinion with us on each available option, we were able to make a superior purchase.
Barry did an outstanding job of coordinating the property showings schedule with our friend's personal schedule. He was thorough in his viewing of each potential property. He kept us well informed throughout our search about each property's value, amenities, and the pros & cons of each listing. Barry was an excellent real estate advisor.
Barry worked for us to get us the best deal, on the best property, within the community that we wanted to purchase, and did it in record time, within our budget! We were completely satisfied with his knowledgable handling of all facets of our transaction.
We found Barry to be a man of integrity. He possesses an unparalleled professional and personal work ethic. We could not have transacted our successful real estate purchase, in the short three weeks from viewing to closing, without his ample help.
We heartily recommend Barry Hoey to anyone wishing to purchase real estate in Naples, Florida.

I just wanted to take a minute now that we are in our new home and say thanks for all of your hard work and guidance through this home buying experience in SW Florida. I remember when we met you at an open house in Golden Gate Estates. Lydia and I discussed with you that we were moving from Columbia, South Carolina to Naples, Florida and explained what we were looking to buy, but also advised you that we were here for only a few days and needed to move quickly. You immediately lined up some houses for us to see and between you and Kim, were able to show us enough properties that we could make a decision. We ultimately chose a new build in Sapphire Cove and you helped us with the negotiations and options choices. I couldn't believe that we were able to move that fast. On a large purchase like this it's not like us to make a quick decision, but with your knowledge of the market and your guidance, we actually signed a contract during our short visit to Naples. It has taken a little while for the house to be completed but we closed and we are moved in. I know it's a difficult time to build a house but you were always there to help with our questions and concerns during the process. You and Kim were a huge part in making our retirement dreams come true!! We love the house, neighborhood and Naples Florida!! I retired from a sales job and it's rare to find folks that will go above and beyond to make their customers happy. You did just that and we are wishing you much success......you have earned it!!

They have the discretion to know when to be aggressive and when to be patient. He understands the market and he understands his seller’s and buyers needs. The work they did before the listing to generate interest facilitated in the rapid sale of the property. They also used their tenured experience in helping us prepare our home to attract buyers.

RE: Barry Hoey
This is a big shout out to Barry Hoey at Downing-Frye Realty, Inc., Will Dukes at Summit Mortgage and Dawn White at Ross Title and Escrow. Now that I am settled into my new home, unpacked and starting to relax I can reflect back on my buying experience. I have to say that this was a very stressful big step for me from the start before even picking a realtor. Well, that stress slipped away very easily when I began my search with realtor, Barry Hoey. He was well organized, took the time to make sure I saw everything that fit into my criteria and negotiated the deal down to $25k under the asking price adding in all furniture and artwork. Not only did he help me find a wonderful place to live, but also saw it through every step of the way to make sure all went smoothly, including being there at closing. In addition, he recommended the perfect team to work with for my mortgage and closing. Will Dukes, at Summit Mortgage, has a flawless system and was so well organized. He was on top of everything needed and had all paperwork prepared a week before closing. Ross Title and Escrow was also easy to work with and helpful. Looking back, it is hard to believe it if I didn't experience it myself, how smoothly a closing on a house really can be. So I'd like to say thank you first, Barry Hoey, for his never ending help, dedication to his clients and our friendship. He is the only realtor I will be talking to in the future. Also, a big thank you to Will Dukes at Summit Mortgage and Dawn White at Ross Title for making the process so seamless. The three of you make an excellent team for any home buyer. Thank you for your hard work it is much appreciated.

In December of 2017 I bought my wife a house hunting trip to Florida as we had just started discussing a 2nd home. As soon as I booked the trip my friend recommended Kim Zuponcic and the Hoey team as he had bought through their agency about 4 years previous. Totally new to the FL market I called Kim directly and I was astounded in her responsiveness. In just a few days I was sent maps and information on numerous possibilities. After another conversation Kim made excellent suggestions as to our preferences and already started to set up meetings for us.
Upon arrival to Florida Kim picked us up and drove us from property to property showing us very worthwhile possibilities. It was then we threw Kim a curveball as our preferences changed from condo to house so Kim reset numerous meetings allowing us to see home after home which greatly helped in our decision making process. We left Florida with lots to think about and we did make a last second offer on a home. Kim was excellent in taking us through the process. This offer was a “2nd offer” and we were a bit too late to win that property. Kim hung with us and we watched activity for about 3 months. In the end we waited out the prime season and made an offer for $45K under asking which was accepted. While this was excellent, Kim’s follow-up and attention to detail in the final sale was nothing short of remarkable. We did everything from WI and Kim took care of everything in FL. She was truly a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend any house hunter utilize her top notch services. Thank you to Kim Z and the Hoey team.

I was in search of a new realtor when my previous realtor just wasn't promoting/advertising the property the way I had expected. After terminating my contract with the previous realtor, I met with Barry Hoey at the residence who gave guidance on how to make the property more attractive to a potential buyer. After about a month of getting the property ready to be relisted, he conducted another comparative market adjustment and the property was back on MLS. After a short while and several offers, I obtained almost full listing price. . Barry provided expert advise during the entire process and I will definitely use him again. Thanks Barry for the outstanding job..... Doug Turner

We are gladly introducing ourselves as new home owners , mainly to the hard work and effort ,to make it happen for us ,for having Barry Hoey our realtor .
We met Barry at one of the open houses he hosted back in January 2017, on a Sunday afternoon.
The minute we met him at that location, we had a very good feeling about him, and a very warm welcome from his side.
We spent about 30 min. talking to him , telling him what we are looking for in the future to purchase as a family home that would suit our needs ,financially ,location wise , etc.
Immediately he took notes of our wishes ,that we explained to him, and it was a very quick response from him to start a big search for us in the real estate field, that would interest us.
It took about 3-4 weeks until we reconnected again, mainly that the house we were really interested in ,was listed on the market by him.
We called him if we could take a look at the property, and 20min !!!! later ,he showed up (on a Monday afternoon, I was so happy that ,he makes it happen all the time ,availability wise)
It was a major meeting, and he ended up being the key person to make the deal happen ,because of his endless knowledge in the business, and also having a lot of other extremely experimented personal surrounding him in the real estate field.
I am driving a lot with my two little girls in the car , and we hear Barry a lot on the local radio stations , and the little ones are just reacting so happily hearing him on the radio ,knowing him that he is the GUY.
It took us about good 2 months to finalize the deal, of buying our first property and we can’t be happier of having him as our real estate agent.
He literally works 24/7 , 7 days a week ,(don’t know when he sleeps) he is all in when it comes to make a deal come through.
Not only that, Barry will still connect with you after the deal is done ,to make sure that he is still there for you if you have questions or unsolved issues regarding the new property.
He keeps checking in with us on a regular basis and making sure our needs are fulfilled.
Recently Barry, recommended me for one of his newest real estate customers ,so I can install a new porcelain flooring.
It was the perfect recommendation ,the new customer that Barry recommended to me , did not hesitate to hire me ,and I ended up doing a nice job, that made everybody happy.
It just shows the character that Barry has ,as a real estate broker and as a individual.
I would recommend Barry Hoey , to anybody that I know and to every new people that I would meet in the future.
He is a very professional and a elite person to work with in the real estate field.
Once you meet him , you are in for a long term relationship,
I wish him all the best in the future ,and so do I for his knew customers.
Very happily and respectfully

We were probably one of Barry's most difficult clients because of previous bad realtor experiences. Barry did everything he promised from pre-sale through closing. Our Golden Gate Estates home sold within a week of the MLS listing at 98% of asking price and closed in 20 days from MLS listing date!
We highly recommend Barry Hoey!
Thank you Barry!

I first met Barry Hoey when he met my dad. He started to sell the house, then my dad died. We had to do a lot of construction work on that house because of code deficiencies. It took years to sell the house, but Barry hung in there. He was there almost every week-end holding an open house. I can't imagine after all the time that he spend trying to sell the house that he made any money on it. But he had told my dad that he would sell it. And he did. Barry is a very ethical realtor and it was a pleasure to know him.

Thanks to Barry and the Hoey team for helping us list and sell our condo. Barry is professional and knowledgeable and stayed in close contact with us throughout the entire process. Even with COVID-19 and the surrounding uncertainty, we were able to get our condo sold at the price we wanted. The pictures and 3d view of our place were way beyond our expectations and we would definitely use the Hoey team again for future listings…Buying or Selling, they’ve got you covered!!!

So sorry it has taken us awhile to answer! Please find below our comments.
We first met Barry at an Open House and liked him immediately. Unfortunately, at the time we were not ready to buy yet. Fast forward about 6 months and we were ready and had several houses that we wanted to tour. Barry and Kim took us to those listings, and Barry remembered us right away. Long story short, we selected a house, made an offer (which Barry help us get the price down), and moved in. When we finally got our previous house ready to sell, we contacted Barry to list it. The amount of work he goes through to list a property is unbelievable! House was listed on Saturday, Open House on Sunday, and on Monday we had an offer! A $10,000 over asking price Offer. We will definitely use Barry again if we need a real estate agent.
