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.

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.
