From Humble Beginnings

The Barbic’s Real Estate journey began in 1988...

As owner of Yamaha of San Jose and being a professional Road Racer, in 1985 Alan lost his home to a major forest fire in the Santa Cruz Mountains and closed the doors on his motorcycle dealerships. Out of the ashes of this wounding time, he set his sights on a Real Estate career and began. In 1988 without a car and only the Orange Van of his dealership days Alan quickly started making an impact in real estate. Alan’s wife Michele joined the team and they started targeting the luxury market. Fresh out of college Ben Barbic joined and the family business began. Alan was selected as Assistant Manager that oversaw the transactions of over 180 agents at the Coldwell Banker Los Gatos North and South offices. 


Alan & Ben formed the father-son team shortly after Michele became a marriage and family therapist. They transferred to Sereno Group in 2016 and enjoyed the company and its culture . Alan soon became President of the Silicon Valley Association of Realtors (SILVAR) and a Director with CAR California Association of Realtors) that helped him gain an insider's understanding of the current and future direction of Real Estate. As Ben continued to focus on real estate and enjoy the profession they always talked about one day starting their own brokerage and merging the skill set of both of them and what a combined 45 plus years in the business would bring. 


Headquartered in the Santa Cruz Mountains, in early 2021, they turned this dream to reality and formed the Barbic Real Estate Group. It is with excitement and pride they now emerge from a humble beginning to the next chapter in the journey. 


Barbic Real Estate group brings passion, experience and a unique dedication to excellence in helping their clients realizing their dreams.
