Expert Staging Advice
We will consult with you to determine what, if anything needs improvement in your home to make it show the best while on the market. Market research shows that staged homes sell in as little as 30 days and for up to 3-6% more than homes not staged. (Staging is optional but recommended in some cases.) Click here for more info > >
Virtual Staging is most commonly used for vacant houses. We will have our professional photographer take pictures of each room in the house. We then take these beautiful pictures and re-create them to include stylish home furniture pieces, eye-catching area rugs, and other art and decorative items. This "Make Over" helps home buyers imagine the potential of the vacant property as their future home. If you have looked at homes before then you know how hard it can be to imagine yourself in any given home. This is where virtual home staging can really be a major benefit.
With 90% of home buyers starting their home search on the internet, It has become more important than ever to ensure your home is professionally photographed. We utilize the latest technology and techniques to ensure your home looks amazing to all potential home buyers.
Utilizing Facebook, Google, and Bing... We target market local and out-of-town buyers for your home by determining the geo-location of a website visitor. In addition, we deliver relevant content to the visitor based on his or her location, such as state, city, zip code, organization, IP address, ISP or other criteria. This cutting edge method of marketing allows us to expose your home to a targeted group of potential home buyers.
Utilizing professional marketing pieces that people actually like to look at! To ensure maximum exposure these ads are distributed throughout every relevant real estate marketing avenue.
No home marketing strategy would be complete without the traditional “For Sale” sign. Of course, we don’t stop there…on top of the real estate sign is a 1-800 number which provides detailed information about your home 24 hours a day. When a buyer calls the number, the caller hears a professionally recorded message. When the call takes place, our office captures the caller’s name and phone number. This call capture feature gives our sales team the opportunity to follow up and set an appointment.
Since many homebuyers prefer the convenience of Texting, our team has designed a system that offers instant access to the professional photos of your home and other detailed information.
Print advertising is still being utilized by many people looking for new homes. To take advantage of this we have secured the front inside 2 pages of the local real estate magazine. This guarantees that your home is seen before anyone else. This magazine has a wide distribution covering all of Shasta, and Tehama counties, In addition, the magazine is national and any buyer can access a copy for free anywhere in the country.
Open houses are a great tool for locating a buyer for your home.

We utilize a very sophisticated set of marketing databases and management systems that have been proven to pinpoint potential buyers for homes that meet your specific criteria. As a result, our time is only spent prospecting the most relevant leads. This kind of precision marketing is the pinnacle of real estate marketing solutions.

Josh Barker and his entire office staff were most professional and yet friendly and welcoming. They were always on top of every question or difficulty we had, and jumped right in to provide excellent service. Even after helping us sell our home (full price in three days!) and finding us our new home, they have stayed in communication to make sure that we were completely satisfied with both transactions. -Dave and Patty L.
Josh and his team sold our Redding home in just two days! The team were incredible from start to finish, ensuring that the process was smooth throughout, despite a couple of stumbling blocks when the buyers had financial setbacks. After Josh came and interviewed us and we agreed to list with him, everything kicked into high gear. The photographer came out, installed the sign, took pictures (and listened to my suggestions - I'm a photographer); the listing appeared on Zillow and the MLS; we had showings within hours of the listing; we got a near full price offer and away we went! Inspections and tests happened in short order, the Barker Team recommended contractors for needed repairs and also recommended movers for our relocation north and helped with myriad small details. All in all, I can't say enough good about this team. If you need to buy or sell property, these are the people to use. -Paul and Barbara Y.
I already have recommended your team to a colleague. You are super stars! What a mega difference! -Tanya E.
This was the best experience I've ever had! Their whole team made you feel as though you were their only client. Words cannot describe how well they take care of you from beginning to end.

A+++ I would give them 100 stars if I could. They were so amazing when we sold our house in Redding. We had full asking price in 11 days. They were very fast at returning phone calls or answering questions. Their system for selling was quick and very efficient. Two years later they helped us find a realtor in the northern coast area. Simply outstanding! I recommend them to everyone! They go above and beyond to help their clients!!! - The Bennetts

We were very happy with the service and knowledge that Josh Barker and his team brought to the table in our real estate negotiations. We are confident that with out Josh we would have paid significantly more for the property, would not have been as well informed regarding the property and then tenants therein, and that this would have been a different transaction all together. Even after the close of escrow Josh and his team have continued to help us out with questions to the former owner. We heartily recommend Josh for all of our real estate needs.
I have rarely had the pleasure to do business with such a team of professionals. Josh met with me personally to explain how the members of his staff would work together with my wife and I to come to a successful conclusion in the sale of our home. Each member of this organization had specific responsibilities in the sale process, and each and everyone did their job to perfection. It is gratifying to find a group of people that are so dedicated to their clients. I heartily recommend Josh Barker for all your Real Estate needs. -Gordy S.
Josh came highly recommended and it was clear right away that he has a high level of expertise and professionalism in his field. He was very attentive to our needs, detail oriented and knows the local market quite well. His online strategy of showing our home and getting the most quality views possible was definitely encouraging and exciting! He has assembled a quality, friendly and professional staff who helped make our home selling experience an easy and smooth one. There is no doubt that we will be using Josh and his tea for our future real estate ventures. It was a joy to work with them!!- Paul M.
Josh Barker and his entire team are amazing! They are on the ball every minute and they don't miss a beat. They treat us so well that they feel like family. We will never choose anyone else for our real estate needs! Josh gets your home sold asap! Couldn't be happier! -Jennifer M.
Josh has my highest recommendation. Our home was listed for 6 months with no offers. We retained Josh and thanks to his knowledge, exposure to many websites and his expertise, within weeks we received multiple offers. The great thing about Josh and his team, is you have the personal attention of having a small town real estate agent, like a friend, but the talent and professionalism and knowledge of a big city Broker combined into one, that is rare! If you want your home sold, call Josh and his team, they are a delight to work with. -Sara C.
To Josh Barker and his team, I cannot thank you enough for all your hard work and dedication in selling my home. You and your team were professional, knowledgeable and responsive throughout the whole transaction. Josh, I always felt you had my best interest at heart and you made a potentially difficult process extremely easy. From start to finish the service I received was nothing short of excellent. I will definitely be referring anyone I know looking to buy or sell a home because you are without a doubt the best realtor I know!
I would like to give a huge thank you to Josh Barker and his entire company for helping me with my recent home purchase. It is clear that Josh is passionate about what he does and extremely knowledgeable. Finding the right home felt stressful at times but Josh was always available for all of my questions. The entire company went above and beyond throughout the whole process. Josh has sold several homes for my family and friends with great success so working with Josh was an easy decision. -Brian M.
I have already recommend Josh Barker to several friends. His office was extremely professional, punctual, informative and helped us quickly sell our home for a great price. Thank you Josh and team! -April L.
From the beginning of the process to the end, Josh and his team were exemplary. Each team member knew their job and handled it with nothing but true professionalism. I will definitely recommend Josh and his team to my friends and family -Donald T.
It was both a professional blessing and an honor to have worked with Josh Barker and his team. When it came time to sell our house, a dear friend highly recommended Josh Barker. Following his advice, we called Josh. First impressions go along way, he was very impressive as well as very professional. Josh certainly did his homework determining the financial specifications of the housing market in our neighborhood. It was quite evident that the Lord was working through Josh. When God is for us, who can be against us. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding, acknowledge Him in all your ways and He will make your paths straight. To that end, I would highly recommend services of Josh Barker Realty, only wish I had another house to sell. God Bless. -Phil and Diane Richardson
Josh (and his team of professionals) was outstanding! We were very impressed with the communication throughout the process of listing and closing the sale of our duplex in Redding...and we live in Santa Rosa!! Josh's insight, knowledge and personal attention was much appreciated. We would very definitely recommend Josh with no doubt or hesitation. -Bob and Fiona V.
We were so pleased with the service provided by Josh and his team. We interviewed three realtors prior to signing with Josh and selected him based upon his knowledge of the market and strategy for promoting the property both locally and outside Shasta County. Josh emphasized his team approach and communications with his clients. The house sold in seven days and escrow went without a hitch. I've bought and sold 10 properties and this transaction was by far the most seamless. Thanks Josh and your team of professionals! -John and Christina B.
