To Barry, Willy, and the Discover your Destination team,
"Myself, I am a broker in the South Florida area, USA for about 25 years. My background include a centurion, top agent for Coldwell Banker, top agent in the State of Florida for Remax and for the last 8 years a broker owner. My intention here is to express what a pleasure it was to use the servicer Barry Soloman, of Remax Realty to help my husband and I purchase a real estate investment in the Dominican Republic. Thanks to his services we avoided what could have been a costly mistake. And instead were able to purchase the property of our dream. I have been around the real estate world and I recognize an agent that is truly extraordinary. Not just an agent but a person as Barry Soloman and Willy his associate.
It became immediately apparent that these two agents were service oriented, dedicated, skilled and extremely valuable assisting clients. They were accurate on their information from simple things such as banking, restaurants, neighborhoods, right thru the closings. Dominican Republic is much different than here in the states. Barry Soloman was regularly available to us at the slightest request, it was his help and knowledge that got us thru what could have been a costly experience. I just want to reiterate that these two “die hearts” drove me up and down dirt hills road, tract thru bugs and cow field and as the expression goes these two could truly move mountains.
It was a pleasure to work with them and we highly recommend Barry Soloman and his associate Willy to anyone in need of real estate services. We are confident that anyone purchasing real estate will have a smooth, efficient and positive experience using their knowledge and skills."
Thank you, Barry and Willy,
Hollywood, Florida (USA)
"I’m writing to thank you guys for not only great advice on real estate in the DR, but also a great vacation. The Hotel (La Catatlina) you arranged for me was great, and getting me to and from the the airport, fantastic. Introducing me to your families and the BBQ Great. I truly thank you.
Showing me different areas on the island, cities like Caberete, Sousa and Santiago. You were very informative, which allowed me to make the right decision as far as location goes. Cabera had the right feel, friendly people, beautiful beaches and best of all, not too crowded. I really value your advice.
I’m excited thinking about my next visit. Looking forward to when I can spend winters in the DR, with friends like you guys."

“Buying a house seemed like a scary process but Barry’s careful explanations and endless patience made it an adventure instead. What a relief to know that he was handling all the details. He had listened to us so carefully, every house we looked at, he had carefully screened and told us all the pros and cons. When we found the right one we knew immediately that it was OUR HOUSE! We could never have done it without Barry!”
Thank you Barry,

"I would like to write this testimonial for/to Barry Soloman and Julian “Willie” Acosta. My wife and I are planning to retire this year. We had been doing research and decided on Central America (Costra Rica, Equator, Nicaragua) or the Caribbean (Dominican Republic, Dominica, Barbados, Puerto Rico). We checked around and planned to start with Costa Rica, but after talking with Barry we decided to scrap those plans and come to the Dominican Republic. We felt that we had made a connection even before we arrived. Barry helped plan the trip, giving us advise on where to stay and even picked us up from Santiago (a 4 hour trip). He showed us the sites as we travelled to Cabrera. He settled us in our hotel and met us for dinner the first night to plan our visit. During the week, he took us 65 miles north and 65 miles south from Cabrera, so that we not only saw the town that we eventually would settle in, but the island and the culture. He took us into his family. We saw some properties, but the focus of his interaction, was to see if the Dominican Republic would be a good fit for us. We did find a beautiful piece of land that we purchased and he helped us in every way with the purchase. He introduced us to builders, a lawyer, friends and family. When the price was just out of reach he said he would reduce his commission to help. We felt that we had a support system in place so that when we move to the Dominican Republic we would not be here on our own. This has reduced the anxiety that my wife felt about moving here. We are anxious to come start our new life with our new family and friends. Working with Willie, Barry’s partner was interesting, since he is a native of the Dominican Republic. We plan to work in the community, and Barry has even contacted people that will be able to help us find jobs when we arrive. He couldn’t have been more gracious and helpful. We came away very impressed with his level of professionalism, contacts, and knowledge of the properties and culture of the region"

"For anyone thinking about purchasing property in the Dominican Republic, I can highly recommend Barry Soloman. He was not just trying to "sell" me something. He went above and beyond with not just showing the property; he took the time to show me the town, we talked about the people and the culture. He took me to his home and introduced me to his family. Barry went beyond what a real estate agent does, I would recommend him to anyone."

To Whom It May Concern:
Back in September 2010, having taken the decision to sell my property in Cabrera, Dominican Republic, I started searching for a reputable real estate firm which could efficiently promote it. My internet researches lead me, to my great surprise, to a Remax agency directly in Cabrera.
Having been extremely satisfied with one previous transaction in Florida with Remax, I decided to contact Barry Soloman of Remax Discover Your Destination who indicated his interest in representing me in that sale. A few weeks later we even met in Hollywood Florida, discussed the project at length and sealed the deal.
I found Barry and his organization to be most professional and courteous: I was kept informed either by email or phone of any and all developments, a very inventive marketing strategy was developed, my property showcased on his website with a very eloquent description which lead to a very quick sale at an extremely favourable sale price.
I had not expected such professionalism and dedication from a Dominican firm and the quality of all the services and results provided by Barry and his team were way beyond my expectations and for such I have no reservations in HIGHLY recommending him and his firm for anyone interested in buying of selling property in the DR.
Barry they should find a way to clone you to improve the general perception of Realtors around the world.
Thanks for your dedication and excellent services
"Wir möchten uns noch herzlich bei Euch bedanken, das Ihr euch so nett und profesionell um den Verkauf unseres Hauses gekümmert habt. In den über 20 Jahren in der Dominikanischen Republik habe ich selten ,oder auch garnicht , einen so profesionelles Maklerbüro kennengelernt.Freundlichkeit,Persönlichkeit,Erlichkeit sowie Direktheit,findet mann gerade in diesem Gewerbe, in der Dom Rep garnicht mehr. Auch sind wir Euch zu Dank verpflichtet,das man sich auch weiterhin,nach Verkauf des Hauses, unserer und des Käufers Angelegenheiten gekümmert habt und offensichtlich immer noch tut. Wir können Jedem ,der nur in erwägung zieht etwas mit Immobilien oder Ähnlichem tun zu wollen,empfehlen sich an Barry Soloman und Julian Acosto Von REMAX zu wenden. wir würden es immer wieder tun."
