Barry Redden is a Consumer Advocate for the Home Buyer and a licensed Realtor since 2017.
He is fiercely committed to protecting the rights of our home buyer clients.
Barry is a Florida native who has resided in Houston for over three (3) decades. He served as a financial services professional for over twenty (20) years and a business consultant for over fifteen (15) years.
If there’s one thing Barry understands, it is competition. As a highly decorated professional athlete, he has achieved a pinnacle rarely, if ever, seen by most athletes. He has transferred the skills he honed while training and competing (integrity, discipline, teamwork, commitment, persistence, etc.) to his role as an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent.
“Thus far, throughout my life, no matter the career path or the challenge, I have almost always been able to excel well above the average. Some years ago, I made the following observation ( I am sure I was not the first! ): The difference between an amateur and a professional? An amateur will do something long enough until it is done right; the professional will do something long enough until it cannot be done wrong!”
Barry works with all types of buyers, from first time homebuyers to high-end buyers, to the bottom line conscious investor. He can assist you in your purchase of single family homes, townhomes, foreclosures, for sale by owners, and in the building of new homes. See what Barry can do for you!

We encourage you to reach out to Barry well in advance of your anticipated move date to discuss possible representation and so that you can be added to his queue.
Here’s a common scenario
Suppose you attend an open house; or drive by home with a sign in the yard; or see a beautiful home listed for sale on Zillow.
You call the number on the yard sign or complete an online form to request more information from the listing agent. This agent was hired by the owners of the house to sell their property and to get them as much money as possible.
The listing agent offers to show you the house, and you schedule a showing. At the property, they walk you through the home, highlighting all the positive features and glossing over or outright not mentioning any negatives. Texas is a buyer beware state; that means it’s up to you to uncover problems with the properties condition or valuation on your own.
You like the house but are not ready to commit, so the agent offers to show you some other homes that you might like. Here’s where the trouble begins.
While looking at the first house, the agent represented the seller. Now they are showing you other agent’s listings in which they would represent you as a buyer’s agent, should you opt to buy one of those homes.
In the meantime, you’ve given them a clear picture of your purchasing power and your level of motivation. If you decide to buy the first house, (or any of their company’s other listings), they have to turn you over to someone else in their office but would be legally obligated to tell their seller/client everything they know about you. And, from the seller’s standpoint, the agent used their house as a source of buyer leads. The seller most likely shared all of their secrets with this agent, only to have that information used against them if both the buyer side and seller side of the transaction are handled in-house with the same broker.
It’s a convoluted mess, it’s unfair to both the seller and the buyer, and the only ones who win here are the Realtor and their broker.
The only way to avoid these types of conflicts is to work with a single agency, like HelpUBuy America.
