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.

"Wow! Just wow. I don't even know where to start. Paul was the ultimate professional from the very first moment. We were beyond frustrated with the whole selling process prior to meeting Paul, but he came in with an extensive marketing plan that immediately put us at ease. He encouraged us to list at a higher price than we previously listed and we were pleasantly surprised how right on he was! We went under contract in 10 days at almost full price! Paul and his team were amazing. From a staging consultation to marketing strategies above and beyond, this experience was top notch! We would hire him again in an instant. You won't be disappointed!"

"Paul and his team are amazing! He was aggressive, yet realistic in the way he marketed and priced our property, and guided us through every step of the process in a way that provided us with great comfort that he was on top of every issue. We couldn't recommend Paul enough - a true all star!"

"Paul was the utmost professional, and the best property agent I've come across.

He was impressive from the moment he turned up with a very organized and customized package to explain how he would sell our home. He is very knowledgable, gave us excellent advice on when to list, and then had multiple offers at full price within the week. He was great at managing the process through to close, so we always felt things were under control and we weren't on our own. His commission is absolutely worth it. No need to look further for a property agent."

"Paul was great in helping us buy our first home. We had done the online realtor sites and grew tired of the hassle that came with those and wanted to have a single person we could go to. We had a house in mind when we contacted Paul and he was great in getting us a good price and kept the process moving along really well."

"Paul has represented my wife and I on the sale of our Chicago - Roscoe Village property. He expertly enabled us to maximize our sale price through deft negotiating.

We decided to relocate into a condo on the lake, but wanted to avoid the traffic and hassle of a downtown or Lakeview building. Paul found a fabulous building in Edgewater with incomparable lake and city views. We worked together to write the offer and got the condo for almost 10% below the asking price. This guy and his team are terrific.

Do yourselves a huge favor; contact Paul and allow him to work his magic for you."
