Commercial Team

“Our people make the difference through personal attention and exemplary service!”

My approach to property management is based on my experience in commercial real estate as an owner, construction manager and leasing agent. I approach each project like it was one of our own; what’s best for the owner in the long run? Whether it’s a total overhaul of the current system of just some minor changes, we’re always looking for the best way to maximize revenue while maintaining the professional appearance of the property. Let us use Barker’s 30 year track record to your advantage.”

Chris Holt | 
Property Manager
“Property Management is really not just about the property. It is about the people. It is about the owner who holds a valuable asset. It is about the tenant who invests in his business. It is about the perception a property reflects to its visitors as they come on site. Our goal is to add value to each of these facets. We do this by paying attention to details and through clear and open communication.”

Get to know Chris:
Chris graduated from North Carolina State University in 2010 with a degree in Business Finance. After college, he went to work for his family helping to manage and expand their residential portfolio in the Raleigh area.

“Cohesive marketing, innovation branding, and eye-catching printed materials can elevate your property in the eyes of your clients. I’ve seen how a purposefully designed marketing/branding package can change the trajectory of a company. The process of choosing the right colors, fonts, and design to uniquely position your property for success is an exciting and rewarding experience.”
