Our responsibility is to you - the owner. We work to minimize your expenses and maximize the value of your investment.
Choose Experience. Choose Service.
We offer full-service management and lease-up only options for our owners. Full Service for our owners means we handle every aspect of getting your property on the market, securing a tenant, collecting rents, and managing maintenance issues.

Our dedicated marketing specialist ensures that your property is being seen where people are looking for properties. Metrics are also used to track the efficiency of our advertising and our lead management system.
Our high standards can be seen in our use of consistent and stringent qualifying criteria to screen applicants. Our lease is strong and enforceable to ensure your property is protected. We also provide preventative maintenance options to minimize expenses. Quality residents, a watchful eye, and necessary repairs will help your property succeed in the long run.
Our goal is to always position your property for success. Our commitment to quality property management means that we are in the business for the long term. We work to minimize your expenses and maximize the value of your investment. Ensuring you have a positive ROI is our priority.
The Barker Marketing Advantage
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:
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.
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.
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.
