The Barker

Barker Broker Training

Our approach to real estate is unique in that we operate on a deeper level—beyond selling real estate, we are advocates and ambassadors of Santa Fe. The broker team, management and staff have all been hand-picked with this quality and purpose in mind. For more than 50 years, Barker Realty’s commitment and dedication to our unique Santa Fe community and its people have been deep and unwavering. Locally owned and operated by a third generation Santa Fe family, our love for this community drives us to demonstrate our devotion through involvement and integration at a neighborhood level.

Since the 1870’s, the Barker Family has been recognized as a leading member of the Santa Fe community and is known locally as one of its greatest philanthropic supporters. We are proud of the history and culture woven into the core of Santa Fe and have remained steadfast ambassadors through our passion for supporting and bettering our community with decades of advocacy for those in need.

Broker Team

David and Lisa Barker’s business philosophy holds a high regard for integrity, collaborative problem solving, expertise and technology. Our team of associate brokers have been carefully curated with these qualities in mind. Due to the caliber of brokers and the marketing and technology platforms supporting them, our brokers on average produce higher sales, have the lowest average days on market to sell your home, and offer a combined 900 years of experience. Even our newer brokers go through extensive training and mentoring to ensure the highest level of service for our clients.

The latest and best technology is increasingly vital to a highly successful business. The multi-faceted technology platform Barker Realty created to support its brokers is unmatched by other local firms. The world is constantly changing and we must adapt: as an independent brokerage we can be more flexible and adjust to new technology quickly. Our transaction process is completely digital, utilizing checklists and calendars, digital signatures and notifications, to ensure a smooth selling process. Likewise, we focus on new technology such as video conferencing and virtual walkthroughs to promote properties in a safe manner. Effective at reaching buyers while providing seamless support to ensure a buying or selling experience that’s as stress-free as possible, multiple local brokers have joined Barker Realty due to our strong technology platform.


Known for fresh and highly developed marketing that engages and serves our community, our team of six people collaborate closely to produce pieces that go beyond “typical real estate advertising.” Through social media and other online marketing, print advertising, radio and direct mail, the Barker Realty platform is highly effective and stands out from our competition. Our social media presence is focused on engaging the community and serves as a voice for local events and activities, world-wide accolades for Santa Fe, and informative pieces. As such, our sites produce more engagement and followers than any other Brokerage.

The many great opportunities in real estate are not without their pitfalls, which is why we focus heavily on continuing education. Our brokers and staff are exposed to a variety of topics from contractual techniques, to home structural and mechanical issues, to understanding market metrics. We feel strongly that a professional broker is constantly learning. Our team of qualifying brokers are readily available to answer any questions our associate brokers may have and guide them through challenging negotiations.

Listing and Transaction Coordination

A team of licensed staff supports our brokers in listing and selling properties by navigating contractual deadlines and paperwork, as well as communicating with all parties in the transaction including listing and selling brokers, title companies, inspectors, lenders, surveyors, sellers and buyers. These services allow our brokers to focus on what they do best and serve more clients.
