My name is Thad Barker and I was born and raised in Madison County, Ohio. I have spent a majority of my adult life in and around the real estate and auction industries in central Ohio. The central Ohio market is a very diverse and dynamic market and I am very grateful that I have the opportunity to work with buyers and sellers from this great area.
I am a licensed real estate agent and Auctioneer. I am also the co-founder of The Barker Team Realtors. I started my real estate career in 2007 and each year I strive to help buyers and sellers achieve the American dream! It is such an honor and privilege to help buyers and sellers obtain their goals and there is nothing quite like experiencing your clients reaching those goals. Client satisfaction is my #1 goal with each and every transaction and I feel that this is what has helped The Barker Team become an award winning team year after year.
In 2010, I received my auctioneer’s license and founded Thad Barker Auctioneer & Associates. We specialize in real estate, farm, and estate auctions. I truly love the auction industry and the auction method of selling real estate and personal property! There is nothing quite like the excitement of a live auction, it is such a great experience! I love being a part of the auction industry and I strive to share that same feeling of excitement with buyers and sellers at all of our auctions.
I am married to my beautiful wife, Dara, and am a father of 4 wonderful children! We enjoy spending time together, backyard football and baseball, family vacations, fishing, and swimming to name a few things. We are also very involved in 4H and the county fair. The kids work hard on their projects and it’s always a joy to be able to be involved in their lives.
I am also very thankful for all of the people who have helped me obtain my goals over the years. I truly do hope that I can have that same influence in other peoples’ lives as well. I thank you for stopping by and checking out our website and please feel free to give me a call with all of your real estate and auction needs!
