Thanks to Shirley and Barry Carr,

The search for and purchase of our new home went extremely well. Any question we had either Shirley or Barry responded quickly. They were well versed in email, text, and phone making communication very easy. They had an excellent knowledge of the local and surrounding areas. Therefore they were able to take our desires and find applicable homes for us to view and eventually purchase. Thank you again.

Becca Huber

We just took a trip from Iowa to KY to house hunt for a week. We had a terrific time with Barry and Shirley Carr. We found a house we love, thanks to them, and now we are back in Iowa getting ready for the move. We have never had such fantastic service from realtors. There was no pressure and we not found our new home but some great friends. Thanks for everything Barry & Shirley…see ya'll soon.

My wife and I just recently purchased a home in Upton.. It was actually the first house my wife was brought home to as a baby.. Several years later and several thousands of dollars in remodel, we now are living in that home.. Just wanted to come by and say without the help of Shirley and Barry ( Negotiator) Carr this would not have been possible.. They helped inspect the home and then in the end, help us get the home with some laying the foot down negotiating on Barry's Part.. If you are looking for a great couple that will help you from start to finish, Shirley and Barry are the right people to get the job done!!!! Thanks Again for all your HELP!!!

When one looks for a realtor, one tends to look for someone who will listen to the wants and needs, honest, and overall a good person. We found that person in Barry Carr. Not only did Barry listen to all of our needs, was honest with us on all fronts, but he incorporated a true altruistic personality, by putting our needs ahead of his so we could be comfortable with our move and the whole process.

Our move was a difficult one. It was to be done in a short time period, multi-state, with six (6) small kids, which did not faze Barry at all. We came up for a weekend and hit the pavement running. We looked, discussed, and decided. After the weekend, we did not have something lined up and the clock was ticking; however, Barry remained completely optimistic and continued with his 'We will get you the perfect home' attitude. Well, of course Barry made it happen! When we found a house that was listed online on the Hardin Homes site, Barry went out to the property, toured it, and even videoed it and sent it to us so we could have a better feel for the house. Yes, we bought our dream home sight unseen as a result of all the extra effort that Barry put out.

Not only did Barry help us find our dream home, he also put us in touch with one of the greatest mortgage brokers Brad Chambliss, who also worked in making this dream a reality.

Once we got to Kentucky, Barry was there for us if we had any questions or any concerns. He has been our guiding light and compass from the beginning of this journey until the end of it. We have been truly blessed to have met and to have worked with Barry. Barry and his wife are more than just realtors, they are family now.

We would recommend Barry Carr to anyone who is looking to either buy or sell. If and when we decide to move in the future, the first and only call we will make will be to Barry, because we have complete faith in knowing that Barry will get it done for us.

Want to talk about an awesome Realtor, Barry Carr. While I was deployed to Afghanistan and my wife was still in Germany, Barry was the most professional and the most helpful Realtor I have ever met. He would consistently go out of his way to take more pictures of our house and send them to us, make recommendations on certain things, and all around a great person to work with. Even working through the process of requests for improvements on the house that we eventually purchased, Barry still made it very easy with every thing. Because of Barry Carr my wife and I were able to purchase a very nice house at a great deal from the prior owners. I would recommend him to anyone and I would do business with Barry again.

Angela Coefield

My husband and I want to thank Barry Carr from Hardin Homes and Brad Chambliss from Benchmark Mortgage for all your hard work and dedication making a difficult job purchasing a home successful. We had a difficult time and was told it could not be done but you both worked with us and got us the resources to make it happen. Thank you so much!!!!!!!!

Shirley Carr is fantastic – she 's very professional and the most friendly person on planet. From the very first day after showing us the first house we knew that Shirley is our Realtor. She quickly got an idea of what we were looking for, and showed us a lot of places that fit the description within our price range, while not wasting our time looking at places that didn't. Once we found the place that we liked, she got it for the price that we were targeting. And most helpful for us, a first-time home buyers, Shirley and her husband Berry were very responsive and proactive during the closing process and navigated me through the process – it would have been a nightmare with a less qualified agent. We'll use her when we end up selling my place or buying another house, and we'll recommend her to friends looking for an agent.

Jerilynn Sherman Barkdull

We were in Texas when we purchased our KY home via the Internet. Nearly all of the experience of buying was by means of the telephone. Our calls were ALWAYS answered or at least returned promptly. All of our questions were answered. I talked with several listing agents for properties I liked…but in the end I chose Hardin because I was most confident in my realtors. Berry & Shirley Carr were amazing, honest and sincerely want toile sure we found exactly what we were looking for. We give them a 5 star because they did such a great job on a long distance purchase. We love our home and we love Berry & Shirley Carr!

Charity Brown

Even though we had some delays and set backs, Shirley Carr never gave up and did very well with keeping me updated on purchasing my first home and its status. She went an extra step and did help me find a loan agent, since a conventional bank loan wanted more then I could afford as a down payment and closing costs. And when an issue tried to surface there, her persistence helped clear it up in a very timely fashion. If any my friends go to house/home hunting will definitely refer them to Shirley.

Richard and Valerie Briggs

Shirley and Barry went beyond the call of duty to make sure we were satisfied. I so enjoyed working with them and will recommend them to anyone I know or meet who needs a realtor.

When my husband and I started our long-distance home-buying process, we didn't know anything about the Fort Knox area. We where living in Seoul, Korea so really needed someone who could help us. Enter Shirley Carr, who took us under her wing and guided us toward the purchase of a home that is both within our budget and satisfies our needs. Over the period of several months, Shirley and her husband Barry answered all of our questions — (via skype and email) and we had a ton of them — promptly and accurately. When I came to Kentucky to make a final selection of location, Shirley and Barry gave me a guided tour of the area to help me decide if this was the right place for us. Then, once we made the decision to build, she sent us photos of the building progress each week (sometimes more) to keep us informed and feeling connected to our new home. She completed every task in the most professional yet friendly manner possible. And as an added bonus, we became friends. We could not have done this with them. They work as a team to help you decide what's right for you. We highly recommend Shirley and Barry Carr to anyone who wants honest and capable Realtors. They will cheerfully go the extra mile in order for you to find a place to call home. I've never had such good service as they provide.

The McDonald Family

Working with Barry and Shirley Carr was an awesome home buying experience!

They were patient, professional, diligent and understood my families needs. Never did I feel pressured to make a decision. We spent countless days and evenings touring homes throughout Hardin County and we finally found my new home in the desired location.

They were honest, upfront and provided sound advice. I highly recommend Barry and Shirley, that is if you want it done right the first time around.

I not only found my beautiful home but two friends that I would recommend without hesitation!

Kudos to you both and thanks for your patience during such a stressful time.

Always, The McDonald Family!

★★★★★ Barry Carr is a wonderful realtor and I highly recommend him. He helped us not only buy but also sell our home a few years later. He was very helpful in guiding us in our decisions and even managed to get us a return on our investment.

Ruth Krota

Barry and Shirley were wonderful to work with for our move here. Since we were moving here from out of state, they took care of so many details that we were unable to address. We will always be grateful for their expertise and help.

Chasity Childress

Thank you Ms. Shirley and Barry!!! We love our new home, and appreciate all you did to make that happen. You were such wonderful mentors to me and your thoughtfulness will not be forgotten. My biggest fear throughout this process was getting in over my head, and you both really dived in and genuinely took interest in which home I purchased. You truly are top notch in the Real Estate business and in my book!!! I recommend you both to everyone I know buying or selling. Thank you, we could not be happier here!!!

Mathew Daniels

Shirley did an awesome job working with us to find a home in the Fort Knox, KY area. We moved to Fort Knox and I deployed shortly after. It took a number of months for us to find the right place but she was always a phone call or an email away to happily answer questions for my wife and I. Shirley and her husband Barry were helpful throughout the process with good local information and tips also. No doubt I will recommend her in the future to anyone looking to buy a home.

Amy Richardson

Shirley Carr was our realtor and was absolutely fabulous. She listened to exactly what we wanted and we didn't feel pressured at all.
She was persistent in helping us close, suggesting companies for us to use for repairs, and answered us promptly with any questions. We highly recommend Shirley!

Elizabeth Clark

A HUGE Thank You to Barry and Shirley Carr! They recently helped me sell my home and did an outstanding job. I couldn't be more happier and grateful for their support and hard work! Especially Shirley, she was always available and answered any questions or concerns I had in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend either one of them to anyone looking to sell and/or buy a house. Awesome job guys!

Charity Baumgardner-Buckles

Shirley Carr and her husband Barry were one of the best realtors we have had the pleasure to deal with. They are more like friends than just business people and that is rare in this dog eat dog world. Thanks Shirley!

Larry and Kathy Cooper

I can not say enough about Shirley, she is wonderful in so many ways. I was not familiar with the area and wanted to find a place where we would be happy and safe. We spoke many times on the phone, she was so pleasant and helpful. Never once did I try to contact her that she was not available, she answered all of our questions almost immediately. Her personality and professionalism is amazing. I felt so cared for as if I was the only person she was dealing with. I am telling you, I trusted her completely and feel very fortunate to have had her as my agent. She became my agent and then my friend. You can't help but love her. You can not find a better agent, let her sell or help you purchase a home. You will not be sorry in anyway. She is the real deal. Thank you, Shirley for an outstanding job in finding us the perfect place.

Larry and Kathy Cooper

We felt like we had the best agent ever. She was the total package. Her knowledge, friendliness, and easiness to get in touch with impressed us so much . She helped us through the choice of which home would be the best for us. I trusted her completely, and she did not disappoint us. She took care of every need we had, and I will ever be grateful. She lead us to the perfect home and I couldn't be happier.

On the day of my settlement, Shirley Carr made it the best day I had the last 6 years of my life. I have spend the past year researching online to try to find a home somewhere in peace after a rocky and chaotic road the past 6 years. After researching, I choose Kentucky as my new home state for several reasons. I at first started looking for a home to rent in Kentucky in Craigslist ads with the intention of buying a home in a year or so after arriving in Kentucky when I stumbled across a Craigslist ad advertising little to no money down to own a home and cross paths with Shirley Carr. I explain to Shirley my situations and explained to her my intentions. She immediately took the reins and guide me along to show me how I can bypass renting for a year and own my own home right a way despite not having a whole of money to use as down payment etc. She made sure everything is OK step by step along the way with a loan officer she introduce me to. At time, I lived in NC looking to find a permanent home in KY. Shirley guide me to web sites to look for homes in safe areas. I found a home I liked well within my price range. A one level rancher type home in a country setting with a yard more than big enough to own more than one dog to roam freely in the yard. A home with no rules but my own. It almost did not work out. Shirley Carr went out of her way to take a smaller percentage of commission as well as working out an agreement that I will agree on another $1,000 to secure buying the home. She helped secure the deal. After settlement, she went out of her way (A 90 minutes round trip) to make sure I would be settled in properly. She even took a couple hours of her time well after settlement day to make phone calls for me (I cannot hear on the phone and did not yet h ave internet) For that I am eternally grateful for Shirley taking the time to go well beyond her duties to help me own a home as well as making sure I settle in nicely without much obstacles. I am happy to have my own home without being tied down by rules from landlords, my dog is happy to roam the yard. I am within more than an hour to 2 hours or so from several childhood friends. Am near lakes, the beauty of country living, gorgeous views of nature, looking forward to seeing childhood friends in spring and summer. There is less worries now and much more peace than I had the last 6 years, all thanks to Shirley Carr for her kindness and efforts in helping me. Thank you Shirley, I appreciate everything you have done for me. I will pay it forward in your name to the next person I help in life. My dog days "WOOF!" God Bless you. Chip

Carter King

This was my third home buying experience and by far the easiest. Shirley Carr is experienced and a great listener. I really felt like she was our advocate and truly understood our needs. I am beyond impressed with her professionalism and expertise. Even after we closed, she was still there to see if we needed anything else. If we decided buy again, Shirley will be called! Thank you for the effortless and wonderful experience. You are awesome Shirley!

Chuck and Rhonda Kobasko
