Sterling Insurance Agency offers full real estate services with two licensed realtors on staff. In June of 2017 Connor and Chris Mooney teamed up to form The Sterling Group, our new real estate division. In 2019, The Sterling Group officially became part of the J. Barrett & Company team.  We will deliver the same high quality customer service here that the community has come to expect from the Sterling family.

We are here for all of your buying, selling and rental needs. We also specialize in working with first-time home buyers to get them all the information they need to find the perfect first home! Ask us about our First-Time Home Buyer Program if you or anyone you know may be interested. Please feel free to contact us with any inquiries and we will be more than happy to help.
