Barbara Barker started her career as Assistant Property Manager for a Chicago based company managing mixed-use properties in Downtown Chicago and the North Side areas. Her role was to protect homeowners' investments while maintaining satisfactory standards of living for her tenants.

Thereafter, Barbara joined Rent Smart Chicago/ Smart Property as a leasing agent. She built a large inventory of rentals, while efficiently locating and leasing apartments for tenants based on their specific needs and standards.

Barbara maintains a close relationship with the landlords she encounters and understands the necessity of pre-qualifying and securing the right tenant to fill vacant properties. She is always up to date on the current rental market's pricing and trends.

Barbara also specializes in Commercial and Residential Real Estate as a full service Real Estate Broker. Coming from a background of management and leasing, she brings a sharp perspective to the table for developers and investors that are looking to purchase anything from a small two flat to a large mixed-use building. Finding any issues too big before it's too late, it's in her best interest make sure these problems are resolved early on in the process.

When purchasing or listing a home for sale, it is best to have a Real Estate Broker you work with well to guide you in making educated decisions. There are many different properties available, different financing options, consumers have special cases. She provides the information and tools necessary for purchasing the right home that not only fits your taste, but tailored for your specific requirements.

Looking for a new home can be difficult. Finding a tenant can be difficult. Understanding different obstacles during the process is a process! Barbara's goal is to ensure her clients have a smooth transition into a big decision.

    Helped me rent a home.
    This agent is not honest and inconsiderate. First time, she as asked me to come to see an apartment listing at 11:30. Due to traffic jam, I reached at the location by 11:31 to know that she had already left. She couldn't even give a courtesy call to check or notify me before she left! The second time after scheduling the appointment I met her at the location to find out that the pictures she had on the apartment listing were not for that apartment!!!. Actual apartment looks nowhere like those awesome pictures which she posted in the listing. She is the most dishonest, inconsiderate and unprofessional agent I have seen in the area. She's just wasting people's time by attracting them by showing false information. STAY AWAY!!!  MoreLess

    I am truly sorry for our miscommunication and that we were unable to connect in a timely manner. My desire is always to deliver excellent customer care to my current clients. Understandably, you are upset and I should have explained to you how important it is for me to run on-time. It's important that I show up on time to all my appointments in order to keep my next client's schedule on track. I will wait for a client for maximum 15 minutes and allow at least 15 minutes for the showing itself. I never want to disappoint anyone by not being on time. We had arranged a couple of showings, one of them you were a no-show and the next was a rescheduled showing that you ran a little late (45 minutes). I always try to be a woman of excellence and could always improve so if you have any more input about how I can better run my business, I would be open to your suggestions. Again I apologize and would love an opportunity to win back your business.

    Bought a home in 2014.
    Barbara helped me bought a condo around South Loop. She's very nice that she didn't push you. Barbara tries to meet your home searching goals every time, even when you changed your goal, she's very patient. She helped to coordinate different parties involving in the transaction, and always reminds me when to do what. In general Barbara is an excellent realtor.  MoreLess
