Full-Service
Management

As the name suggests we can manage it all for you. Full-Service management means we handle every aspect of getting your property on the market, securing a tenat, collecting rents, and managing maintenance issues.

Lease-up Only

Interested in managing your own rental, but need help with finding a quality tenant? Let Barker secure a tenant for your home! We will advertise your property, locate and screen applicants, and then use our time-tested rental contract to secure a lease. Once a tenant signs the lease, we will let you handle the rest.

Tenant retention

We believe tenants are a valuable asset. Our goal is to find good, quality renters and keep them. We work with homeowners to see the value of tenants remaining for the long-term.

maintenance services

We can assist in managing any emergency, repair, or preventative maintenance need for your property. We work closely with Barker Property Maintenance Company on many of these items; however, we are glad to work with your own vendors as well as long as they are properly licensed and insured to our standards.

Barker Realty,Inc. begins marketing a property as soon as a vacancy notification is received from a tenant, or a new property is brought under management. We will advertise on behalf of the owner to promote the property and secure tenants in the following ways:

Online Marketing

Within minutes of posting a property for rent online, we have eyes viewing and fingers clicking on their potential new homes. The flood of response can be overwhelming if not anticipated. Technology is the best tool to use to meet these inquiries. We have been able to successfully create systems to respond to inquiries quickly and effectively.

Barker Yard Signs

Our yard signs generate thousands of calls and inquiries per year. We place the signs as soon as the property goes on the market to start the phone calls flowing! Signs from other properties we manage can also cause prospects to find your property.

Barker Website

Current and up-to-date information can be found here. Whether this is a prospect’s first stop or they are redirected here, visitors can access property information, qualifications, and began their application process.

Showing Properties

We have multiple methods to allow prospective tenants to view your property. Our first choice is to show it directly through Barker’s personal showing agent. In addition, to our showing agent we post properties in the Triangle MLS and allow licensed Realtors to show properties to their clients. We also allow key check-outs to some of our vacant properties.
