I feel so fortunate to have found Ken Barris and Jordan Baris Inc.

From the minute I made my decision to list my mother's property with Ken I found myself in extrememly kind professional and expert hands. Ken followed through on everything discussed and promised in our intitial conversations. Ken's easy going manner partnered with his industry expertise has made for a stress-free experience. I live in Vermont and my 88 year-old mother is selling her condo in West Orange. Ken has gone well beyond the call of duty to be the liasson between contractors and handle details that I was unable to do from such a distance. He did this with a smile and ease that made me feel like a member of the family was watching out for us. I must also add that Ken's expertise and negotiating ability was masterful obtaining a good price in today's market. Ken's performance as our realtor exceeded all expectations!

Highly likely to recommend I found myself in a situation with a family home that was now being rented.

I called a realtor and his vision and interest was not there. I decided to call Jordan Baris (the company we used to buy this home) and received a call from a friendly voice who immediately told me not to worry. The situation was difficult and required someone who was knowledgeable, level headed and knew how to deal with difficult people. She truly cares about people and did everything to turn this situation around. It resulted in the home finally selling for much more than the first person I called. I will always be grateful to Blossom for her kindness, strength and determination. I consider her friend and would recommend her to anyone who needs more than a realtor. Thank you Blossom.

His knowledge of the real estate market in my area as both a buyer when I bought my home and when I was thinking about selling my home was accurate in depth and is extremely personable and great to work with. Highly recommended. To this day he is always available and helpful.

Ken is a phenomenal agent.

He is on the cutting edge of technology when it come to both selling and buying. The web pictures and overall description of our home drew many potential buyers. In fact when our cherry blossoms bloomed Ken came back to upgrade out outdoor photos. When it came to picking a new home Ken setup advanced search engines for exactly what we wanted. We were able to go and view homes that fit our very specific criteria. But not only did he have offer advanced technology he has years of experience and can accurately evaluate a home's worth and future potential. When looking at homes he can envision potential upgrades. Ken's ability to close the deal was what was most impressive he is an honest and sincere agent whose reputation speaks volumes. Other agents respect and want to conduct business with him. I cannot emphasize how strongly I recommend Ken

0 05/24/2021 - user202058 Bought a Single Family home in 2021 in Morris Plains, NJ. Local knowledge Process expertise Responsiveness Negotiation skills We had such a wonderful experience with Rich Mair. He found us our forever home after looking at so many houses. He was very helpful in picking the house that was perfect for our family and had a nice yard for our son to play in. We thought we found a home until realizing it needed more work than we could handle as first home buyers. He was patient in helping us find the best home for our families needs. We are so happy in our new house and thankful to Rich for his professionalism and patience. Highly recommend his services.


Ken and his team really went above and beyond to help me through a difficult sale and move--easing my stress by taking care of problems that were clearly my responsibility: from finding tradesmen to make repairs to referring me to people who could help me with packing and organizing to arranging and supervising junk removal.

Although my expectation was consistent with my experiences in maybe a half-dozen other real estate purchases--that is that a realtor would do no more than find me a buyer and get us to a closing--i was continually and happily surprised by how Ken exceeded expectations by providing such a wide range of services and doing so promptly and efficiently.
