We want to express our deep appreciation for all you did to help us purchase our new home in Cape Vincent. Your patience, willingness to get answers to all our questions and quick follow up on any issues that surfaced was way above expectations. Despite your busy schedule you made us feel we were your only clients.
Of all the real estate transactions we have done this was one of the best because of your hard work and professionalism. Your delivering of seasoned firewood so we could enjoy the fireplace on our first night in the house was very special. It is also typical of your kindness and generosity.
We would be happy to recommend you to anyone looking for a positive home buying experience.

Thanks again,
Sally and Rich Sauer

Thank you so much for bringing your buyer to Dablon Point!! It is such a beautiful property and I am sure that the Sauer’s will enjoy it. Seems like a perfect fit. Also, thank you for making the transaction as painless as possible and being patient while the sellers collected everything for this to close. I look forward to our next transaction!

Very Sincerely Kate

“Words cannot express how grateful we are to have had Barry Kukowski as our realtor. We weren’t sure of exactly what kind of house we wanted to purchase and it took us 2.5 years to finally find our match. Barry diligently stuck by us throughout all the various hurdles along the way and guided us through the long process. We have worked with several realtors throughout the years and have never found one that we could completely trust and rely on until Barry. He looked out for us like we were family. He was so easily reachable and always responded to our texts and calls within minutes and way beyond normal business hours. Even when he had a jam-packed schedule he would find the time to fit us in to do a showing. His experience and knowledge in local real estate (especially waterfront) and his numerous contacts in the field really helped us to make the wisest decision in purchasing for our family. It was more than just business with Barry, we formed a friendship and will continue to stay in touch”.

“Barry is a terrific realtor. He was always available whenever I called or txted him. Very conscientious. He helped us sell our house in a very bad market. I would use him again. ;)”

Debbie Rasmussen

“Barry helped us look at dozens of homes, knew the areas, and guided the decision that was best for us (to purchase land and build in Clayton). We were not local and did not know anything about the area. He recommend options for whatever services we needed and made the transition as smooth as possible (as smooth as moving can be). His energy and interest to support our every need made the process enjoyable. I have worked with many realtors over the years, moving around the US. Barry provide the best support I have ever received.”

Kent Anderson

“My husband and I have been searching for a home for well over a year now. Barry Kukowski has far exceeded our expectations on every level. He has been available whenever we needed him. Most importantly he was extremely patient while we looked at numerous homes until we found the one we loved! Barry never once pressured us into buying a home and he had said to us many times over the course of the year that he wouldn’t give up until he found a home that was meant for us. Barry did just that and more! This was our first home purchase and we knew very little going into it. Barry is well educated in the real estate field, answered numerous questions, and never once made us feel rushed. Barry is professional, punctual, and all around outstanding! I would highly recommend him for a real estate agent. “

Amanda & Samuel Rosen

“Barry is a very proactive agent. I was trying to relocate just locally, mainly to be closer to work and have a fenced-in yard for the dog, and he was very good at finding houses in my price range and according to my needs. Although there were a few I loved for their architectural detail, I also had to concern myself with it being the last house I might be in and the steep stairs of older houses. We did find a few that met my needs, but not my price range, but it was still good to know what was available and comparable to my house as far as selling it. Barry also returned my emails very quickly. He is also not a pushy salesperson. He is very patient.”

He can be depended upon to deliver upon his agreements with clients, customers and other Realtors. I look forward to future interactions and business transactions working with Barry Kurkowski. He is a five star Broker and person. Sincerely, Bruce Lippa Broker/Owner Lippa Realty, LLC

We could not be more satisfied with the work Barry did as our agent. He was always prompt in answering our questions, proactive in the process of selling, and our results were more than we expected. We are recommending Barry to everyone we know!

Barry helped me look for property in the Clayton, NY area. Although I ended up buying property in Canada instead, Barry was very helpful and professional, and he is the first person I would call if I was looking for property in the north country.

Barry is awesome

Richard Anchor

I am 100% satisfied with Mr. Kukowski’s handling of the sale of my property. He went above and beyond to work out a couple of unique problems with the property.

Barry helped me find my condo in Clayton in record time and then 3 years later helped me sell it as well.

Barry Kukowski helped us realize our dream!! For years we’ve been looking for just the right river front cottage to purchase for our family. Over the years we worked with several real estate agents from many different agencies in the Clayton and Alex Bay area. Not one gave us the attention that Barry did. We looked at a few cottages with him in the summer of 2015. Nothing was really right for us on the market then. In January 2016 he called us about an opportunity that was available that fit our criteria. It was a great surprise that he remembered us and what our needs were especially since we didn’t spend that much time together looking at camps. Other realtors always said they would keep us in mind but none ever followed up. The cottage Barry showed us was exactly what we were looking for. We decided to put in an offer but had driven back to Syracuse. Barry spent hours on the phone with us the day filling out the paperwork. There was also a problem with the property with tax liens. Barry came up with a unique solution that we had to write into the purchase offer in the event that the closing didn’t take place before the property was going to be auctioned off. It was a good thing he came up with this because we had to enact his suggestion. To further complicate the sale the seller was an elderly woman out of state who had to rely on neighbors to receive to scanned documents. Barry was gracious enough to show us the property several times as well during months we were waiting to close so we could take measurements, plan and order building materials so that we could start with renovations right upon closing. This was necessary to ensure we could get a lot of work done before the summer season and enjoy the cottage. He also introduced us to the next door neighbor so we could gather more information on the property. He was always beyond helpful with anything we encountered along the way including the flood zone issues and gave us the name of surveyor who helped us apply and successfully get a LOMA. We also encountered something in the deed from 70 years ago that allowed members of the original land owners family to have rights of first refusal on the sale of any of the property on the point. Barry was also helpful to our attorney to track down the family member. This was very very far from a simple sale and at every unusual turn Barry was always there to help us including while he was on vacation in California. A couple of days before closing the owners started to renege on some of the furnishings that were a part of the purchase offer. We contacted Barry and he negotiated with them and even gave us money out of his commission to compensate for a hutch we allowed them to keep. That is a true professional!! I cannot say enough about Barry and his dedication, knowledge and helpfulness! He truly epitomizes what a realtor should be. I’m so grateful for his help in allowing us to be able own a cottage on the St Lawrence River. I highly recommend him to anyone!

Barry is a great Realtor that I have had the pleasure of working with several times. He is very responsive and always puts his clients needs first!!

Barry was amazing. We have never had a realtor that has gone so far out of their way for us. He was so easy to work with and had great patience. He took his time to ensure that we were comfortable and confident in our decisions. We appreciated that fact that he was an outside of the box thinker. We will be contacting him again for a purchase in the near future.

Jeremy and Nola Casanova

Barry makes you feel as you are more than a client, you are a friend and he goes above and beyond what one would expect !!

Jeremy H.

Barry was very nice to work with and kept in contact throughout the sale of our property.

Richard Ingerson


Barry is an excellent realtor. He doesn’t treat you like a client, he treats you like a good friend. He goes above and beyond what one would expect from a realtor

Jeremy H.

Barry went above and beyond what most agents would go through to help us find our dream summer home on the St Lawrence River in Clayton, NY. He was always there for us day or night throughout the entire process. His knowledge of the area and the expertise he provided during our search, the negotiation of the purchase offer and the eventual closing on our property was invaluable to us. We never felt like we were merely in a client-agent relationship, Barry always made it seem more like a friends and family atmosphere. We can’t thank him enough for all his efforts on our behalf…Highly Recommend! James and Theresa Knight

Is this a Roast or a Eulogy? Barry is probably the best real estate agent we have ever dealt with. He is attentive and responsive. He answered every question we had from 350 miles away. His integrity and honesty assured us that we were making the right move in coming to Clayton. We bought the property, he sold the town. We love The River and our introduction to the area through Barry was followed up by the charm of the area.

Barry was very courteous and professional with us. He was always punctual and let us know when someone was going to look at the camp. We have used him twice and was satisfied both times.

We enjoyed working with Barry, and will certainly continue this relationship

My experience with Barry Kukowski was excellent. He helped me sell a property at a time when selling vacation properties was difficult. He was in constant communication and was very reassuring. I would recommend him to anyone who needed a realtor. Sincerely, Victoria Seeber

Victoria Seeber

Barry is one of the best agents in the field. He is responsive, professional, and works hard on behalf of his clients. He is very timely and has a “can do” attitude. I’ve worked with Barry on many deals and I’ve recommended him many times to friends and associates. Barry will work hard for you and represent you well. I am happy to give him 5 stars!

We had an excellent experience with Barry. He is very knowledgeable and easily led us through the process of buying our home. He knows a lot of service providers and was able to provide us with a list of people who could meet our needs. I felt very comfortable with Barry because I knew he was looking out for us every step of the way. I highly recommend him.

David Kirk

I didn’t know Barry until I became interested in a property that he was listing. Mine was not a simple deal. It was complicated by a list of factors. Barry worked through them all with professionalism and skill. the deal would not have happened without him. As long as he’s working, there is no other realtor in the north country that I would ever work with and I would recommend him to friends, and family.

Tony Malavenda


Barry and I have enjoyed working together for the last 10 years! He brought me customers and I brought him customers!

Excellent, Lorraine and I thought Barry did a great job negotiating with the seller. This is only the 2nd home we have purchased so he was patient and helpful. He was available 24/7 with any questions. We actually went to him on the home because it was not on the market and we spoke to him two years ago on it. So that tells you we were comfortable with his first meeting. I would go to Barry for future purchases and sales. Thanks again Barry and Walt we really enjoy our vacation home.

Michael Kemak

I would give Barry an Excellent star ! He is a very honest and nice man to work with on my house !
