Barry Karch

Barry Karch has always considered himself an unlikely Realtor – quiet, introverted, unsalesy. Not your prototypical formula for success! Yet, Barry has been a top selling Realtor for 36 years, selling as many as 100 homes per year. He has come to realize that being an introvert in real estate gives him many advantages over his more extroverted colleagues. He has created a podcast called The Real Estate UnSalesperson to encourage and inspire his fellow introverted Realtors and has just launched the UnSalesperson community (find info at patreon.com/unsalesperson). His mission is to teach introverts that they have what it takes to succeed in real estate.
