Ray Barkett is wonderful teacher with deep knowledge he can share with apprentices to be successful in real estate business. Very happy that he sent me invitation to start work with "Keyes" and I accepted it, although was many others more desirable with easy money, but no high technology. Thank you for you dedication to real estate business and your students! P.S. is it possible to make live seminars in the office, where students can be with computers and provider have patient to be not in the hurry: simplicity, byside. thank you.

As a relatively new agent (2 months) in this business and visiting many brokers, both small and large I joined the Keyes Agency due to the wealth of knowledge Mr Barkett displayed on multiple occasions.

As a newly licensed agent, Ray has done everything in his power to help me be a success. He's given me the words to say to potential clients and went out of his way to encourage me when he saw I was discouraged by the ups and downs of the business.
Ray is passionate about this industry and about imparting his knowledge and experience into those agents who are receptive to hearing it.
After interviewing with more than 10 brokers, I knew Ray's team was the correct choice for my career path.

I am a mortgage representative who does a great deal of business out of the Keyes Fort Lauderdale office. I have come to greatly respect Ray Barkett and the vast knowledge base he has. He is a certifiable problem solver. He always comes to the aid of his agents and makes the time to assure their success. If an agent is willing to put in the work to be successful and follow Ray's plan they are sure to succeed. I would call Ray the guru of real estate.

There is so much to say about a Manager who takes pride in teaching and sharing his/her talents. Mr. Barkett is that Manager!! He has the passion to teach and who allows his Associates to soar in their real estate career. He is a mentor beyond mentoring....he is a sincere master of cultivating talent. I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Barkett throughout my career with Keyes. I could not have asked for a better Manager or a better person to have in my corner. I will also add, if you are looking for a place to hang your license in either residential or commercial real estate....Keyes Ft. Lauderdale and Ray Barkett is the team!

We would say Ray is one of the most respected brokers in our community ! He has been instrumental in setting new policies, staying at the cutting edge of our industry, and actually changing the way we do business ! His creativity and ability to think "outside the box" has earned him much recognition and admiration. I have spent 37 years [not a typo] under Ray's extraordinary supervision and there is hardly a real estate situation he has not been able to solve in an honorable, professional manor. He has been our source of knowledge, our confidant, and best of all "a good friend". His legacy will not be soon forgotten as he is looked at as the current "Go To Guy" for the most complicated real estate situations that often occur in our industry. We're proud to have spent our entire career on your amazing team ! With gratitude, Anthony & Andrea Vitale.
