My name is Barnaby Wainman.
I’m a REALTOR® at Best Choice Real Estate in Brookings, SD.
In 2003 I moved to Brookings from England. Back then people often asked “Why Brookings of all places?”
Simple answer. My wife (fiancé then) is from Brookings. In fact, her family has lived in the area for about 100 years.

I grew up in a family of architects, interior designers and property developers. As a child I could often be found holding the end of a tape measure, choosing paint colors, or pounding in nails!
All experiences that served me well as I went on to own various real estate related businesses including property management, interior design, and property renovation.
I’ve always enjoyed technology and I’ve made extensive use of the internet and social media marketing for advertising and promotion.
Early in my career, I learned the importance of providing excellent customer service. I strive to always go above and beyond for my clients.
Barnaby was amazing to work with in purchasing my first home!
He was most helpful, made us feel like we were his only customers. He was patient and made time to show when convenient for us. He helped us find the house that is perfect for us.
Barnaby did an amazing job with helping me find my home! He was always there for me in order to help me with any questions that I had and always had my best interest in mind. He did everything he could with looking for all sorts of different homes and finally finding the one I purchased.
Barnaby was very knowledgeable, efficient, friendly, objective, & fair. He was quick to respond to our questions or concerns. He spoke with us honestly about the market and didn't try to convince us to put our rental houses on the market for less than what they were worth. Another realtor insisted we should have put the houses on the market for about $30,000 less each, and tried to strike fear in us that if we didn't accept an offer within the first week they wouldn't sell. We're so glad we called him for a 2nd opinion. We were extremely pleased with Barnaby and wholeheartedly recommend him.
