Tony Barrett, a Manatee county resident since 1990, made Florida his home after serving our country in the Army. Originally from Illinois, Tony joined the Army in 1986 and served as a Medic for over 8 years. As a new Florida resident, Tony’s entrepreneurial skills developed as he created two rental businesses: Florida Inflatables, and Tent & Party Rental. Moving forward, Tony focused his goals in real estate, after selling his two successful rental businesses to establish Barrett Realty.
After over 12 years in business, Barrett Realty is at the forefront of real estate innovation in Sarasota and Manatee counties. Tony and his wife Kelly, in a desire to give back to the community, developed Heroes Welcome Home, a local non-profit that helps Veterans and heroes of society with home ownership, and during times of need. Tony is passionate about Veteran issues!
Tony’s vision is to bring well educated, knowledgeable, friendly agents together with buyers and sellers in a relaxing environment. Tony has assembled a team of well qualified REO professionals to assist asset managers by providing a clear picture of the condition of the asset. Our team works under strict timelines to limit days on the market and bring greater value to the assets we manage.
Barrett Realty has deployed Barrett Real Estate Auctions to assist in bringing properties to the market in an effort to move them with shorter listing times in a transparent online bidding forum. Tony and his wife Kelly appeal to the boutique real estate brokerage, and hand select the very best agents!
