About Barry O’Brien
Barry grew up in the Boston area, and graduated from Emerson College. His passion was radio, and for over 40 years, Barry was involved in the sales, marketing and management end of the radio business. After selling advertising at radio stations in Boston and Washington, DC, Barry became VP of Sales for Radio & Records (R&R), one of the most respected trade publications in the radio industry. For 20 years, Barry was the force behind R&R’s industry ad sales efforts.
After R&R, Barry moved back to Boston, and has been involved in consulting companies in the radio, television, print, cable, and political advertising industries. Barry has been in sales since 1965, winning his first sales contest as an 18 year old milkman for Whiting’s Dairy in Worcester, Massachusetts.
Barry received his first real estate license in Massachusetts in 2005, and is currently living in Ibis Country Club in West Palm Beach, with his wife Nancy Ryan, and their Bichon Frise Alex. Barry is a huge fan of Jimmy Buffett, the Baltimore Orioles, and enjoys a round of golf, a fine cigar, and a smart cocktail on occasions.
Every Tuesday night, Barry hosts “Sellin’ and Buyin’ with Barry O’Brien” on West Palm Beach’s Seaview Radio. Barry interviews the movers and shakers of the Palm Beach real estate and government.
