Paul Barker, Broker
Barker Group at Baird & Warner
Service, communication and dedication are the attributes that helped me succeed during my fifteen years in the Marine Corps. Today, I apply these principles to my real estate business. As a Marine, failure was never an option. I continue to apply this “never fail” mentality in all the work I do.
Preparation is essential when selling a home. To begin, I start every relationship with a thorough market analysis to fully understand my client’s goals. Prior to any home going on the market, my team of experts make sure the property’s best features are highlighted through complimentary staging, accurate floor plans, and professional photography.
Once a property is listed, I employ a customized marketing strategy targeting potential buyers and the brokers that represent them. Throughout the process, I am in touch with my clients on a regular basis with updates, feedback and advice. Many of the homes I sell were unsuccessfully listed by other brokers--my clients know I don’t stop until the work is done.
Buying a home requires its own level of preparation. I believe when the home buying process is efficient, it is enjoyable. Preparedness may mean an introduction to my lender, exploring specific neighborhoods, or a referral to a Chicago Public Schools expert. No stone is left unturned as I take the time to make sure my buyers are educated and confident.
I believe that any real estate broker is only as strong as their team. From mortgage lenders to photographers, every member of my team shares my drive and dedication to fulfilling our client’s goals.
Barker Group is proud to be part of the Baird & Warner team. Similar to the Marine Corps, Baird & Warner has a long history of dedicated service. The seasoned professionals at Baird & Warner work diligently to make sure every one of my transactions close smoothly and exceed client expectations.
