Dara Barker

My name is Dara Barker and I am a licensed Realtor and Owner of The Barker Team.  I started my real estate career in 2007, right when one of the biggest recessions began here locally.  Through that time and over the years, my business has grown and flourished for which I am very thankful.  Each day I have had the privilege of helping people achieve the American Dream of home ownership.  I am very passionate about providing an outstanding experience for each of my clients from start to finish as we work together to accomplish their goal of selling or buying a home!  For many people, real estate is the biggest, or at least one of the largest financial investments they make and as such should be handled professionally.
 
Each year my team is provided a “top producing award” for our high level of production and outstanding service.  We sell a tremendous amount of homes each year and are consistently recognized in the top 100 teams/agents here locally out of approximately 8,000 total in the greater Columbus area!  Our combined years of experience, knowledge, and passion to create raving fans are just a few of the things that set us apart from our competition.  The services I offer, and also have a great amount of experience in, are as follows:
home buying, home selling, first time buyers, investment properties, bank owned sales, HUD homes, short sales, relocation, condo sales, remarketing homes that have previously been on the market and farm sales in Grove City, Ohio surrounding communities, and all of Central Ohio.
 
In addition to my real estate career, it is my desire to stay involved in both professional and community organizations.  I am a member of the National Association of Realtors, Ohio Association of Realtors, and the Columbus Board of Realtors.  Other community and professional development includes the Grove City Chamber of Commerce, Madison County 4-H, Parent Teach Fellowship at my children’s school, and AmSpirit Business Connections.  My team loves giving back to the community in various ways including our yearly food drive at Thanksgiving for The Byron Saunders Foundation.
 
On a personal note, I am married to my high school sweetheart, Thad, and a mother to 4 amazing children, including a set of twins!  My hobbies included spending time with my family, traveling, swimming, cooking, reading, and being involved with the activities my children love.  Through my career and community involvement, I have met so many wonderful people and developed so many friendships and I am very thankful for each one.
 
If you are considering a move, I invite you to give me a call today.  I appreciate you visiting our website and look forward to putting my knowledge and expertise to work for you!

 

Thad Barker

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!
