    After 26 years of moving in the military I can confidently say that Barketa Kerns is the most professional and supportive real estate agent I¿ve had the pleasure of working with. I would highly recommend her to all of my friends and family. Barketa Kerns was referred to us via the NFCU Realty Referral program however we decided to stay with Barketa because of her direct communication style, extensive knowledge of the area, willingness to thoroughly address our questions and responsiveness to our requests for showings.

    Thanks to Barketa Motsko we recently sold our home in Binghamton NY. At a time when we most needed help we were fortunate enough to find her. We are thankful for Barketa and could not have gotten through this without her. Elizabeth and I live in Nevada and needed a trusted advisor to help sell our home in Binghamton. Barketa is all that and more. She interfaced with the last tenant for us, found a handyman to repair damage to the property, obtained competitive bids for a new furnace and help to locate the paperwork needed to close the sale. She was always in contact with us and was much more than our realtor, she was and is our friend! Thank you Barketa! ~ Bill & Elizabeth Burleigh, Las Vegas, NV
    I may be a little biased with Barketa since I have known her for many years. When I first started looking at this property, I asked her for some advice which convinced me to ask her to be my agent during this process. I have no regrets having her on my side. If I ever have the opportunity to purchase another house or property, I would not hesitate calling on her again. ~ Jerry Proof Montrose, PA
    Barketa was awesome. She was fast, professional and always able to meet when we needed to. We would recommend her to everyone. ~ Eric and Savannah Mallery, Vestal, NY
    Barketa Motsko was great to work with during the process of selling our family home. It was an emotional process for all of us due to the fact that it was our parents home and my father had been moved to a full care facility. Her understanding and kindness during this whole process was very helpful to me. I on many occasions had to contact her regarding questions from other family members and other things that came up, and no matter if it was a phone call, email, or text she answered right away. I really appreciated all that she did to get our home sold. She was positive and encouraging throughout. I felt Thank you very much. I would recommend Barketa because she very helpful, caring and professional. ~ Mp nichols

    How I describe Barketa is she comes in this little cute package, but once she knows what you want, if ever questions or concerns - but mostly if you come a crossed an issue.....she comes out as an explosion.

    We really enjoy Barketa, her sense of humor and her knowledge of the current market. Working with her has been a fun experience and are almost sad that finding and buying a new home is over. She has the ability to guide you without feeling the nudge, a rare ability. Although relatively new to the area I think she'll become well known in the real estate market. We cannot overstate how pleased we have been to work with her! ~ Stan & Brenda, Elkhart, IN
    Barketa was a saint when it came to buying our house. We came across many problems that she fixed herself or arranged to have fixed. She even went attack dog for us when we were having issues with certain inspectors/workers who were not doing their jobs, and got everything back on track. I highly recommend her to anybody looking to buy a house. Barketa was not in it just to make a buck and flip a house, she was in it to help us find a home. ~ Andrew Baker / Elkhart, IN
