He followed in the footsteps of his father and grandfather by designing and building a hot and chilled water production and distribution system currently used for the Steamtown National Historic Site. He worked for the Erie-Lackawanna Railroad (previously known as the Lackawanna & Western Railroad). Gene Barrett, Realty Network Group’s newest addition to their network of professionals, has always had a love for Northeastern Pennsylvania and a knack for utilizing his skill set to enhance our region.
Gene’s impressive resume includes, most recently, his post as Business Development Manager for Pennsylvania American Water and prior to that serving as the Executive Director of the Scranton Sewer Authority. His track record speaks for itself, he’s worked exceptionally well with people in our community and now as he continues exploring real estate, he’s excited about further providing for the needs of his family, friends, business associates and the like.
“Since their inception, I’ve always admired Realty Network Group’s diverse portfolio of professionals and their reputation for meeting the needs of their clients,” asserts Gene. “Their diversity mirrors many of life’s experiences.” Gene looks forward to infusioning his real estate transactions with compassion. A quality that’s often missing or lacking in so many business deals today. “I recognize the gravity of today’s real estate consumer, who makes one of the most dramatic and difficult decisions in his/her lifetime,” proclaims Gene. “My past experience has also given me perspective – an awareness of local real estate trends and a practical knowledge in being a business and personal property owner.”
He knows the area well, being born and raised in Scranton, while also getting a sense of what other communities offer. He spent time away from Northeastern PA for seven years on active duty with the United States Army. He’s a husband and father of two children. His hobbies include hiking, cross-country skiing, foreign car restoration and European travel.
