Client Testimonials
What clients say about The Barker Team….

"Our purchasing process with The Barker Team was a breeze"

'Karen and Wetherly Barker could not have been more attentive during our search for a new home. From the start, they grasped exactly what qualities we were looking for in our house and neighborhood. Every home they showed us was directly in line with our taste and budget.

Our purchasing process with The Barker Team was a breeze.
When we finally decided on a home, it was ours in very little time. Once the home was ours, they even provided suggestions for local landscaping, decor and general upkeep of the residence.

We have already and will continue to recommend Karen and Wetherly to our friends searching for places to buy or rent in the DC, Maryland and Virginia area!'
-Ryan Zimmerman and Heather Zimmerman, 3rd Baseman for the Washington Nationals  

"This team did serveral things I have never experieced in a relationship with a realtor in the past"

'I am writing to express sincere thanks to the Barker Team out of your Old Town, Alexandria office.
 I have never been more pleased with a real estate experience and truly believe my husband and I were able to purchase the house of our dreams because we had such a fantastic team working on our behalf. Karen and Wetherly Barker are by far the best agents I have ever had the pleasure of working with and I will recommend them highly! This team did several things I have never experienced in a relationship with a realtor in the past. First, they contacted listings that had been on in the Fall but hadn't come back on yet (to the Spring market) which gave us an unbelievable advantage to see properties that would be coming on the market and that others were not seeing yet. What an advantage! I have never had a realtor do this before and believe it is a true testament to these ladies who went above and beyond for us. The other thing I have found to be so special about this team is that while we were hunting for a home, Karen and Wetherly invited my husband and I to local events and let us know of the goings on in Old Town. As we had just moved back to the States from living abroad for several years and had never lived in the DC area in the past, this truly made us feel comforted and welcome through this big change in our lives. I cannot say enough about the Barker Team and am looking forward to the opportunity to recommend them to others. They are truly special and I feel honored to now not just call them our real east agents, but our friends!'
-Jodi and Paul Peterson 

'Trustworthy, knowledgeable and professional'

'The Barker Team has assisted me in 4 real estate transactions, both locally and out of state. Trustworthy, knowledgeable and professional, I am proud to say that Wetherly and Karen Barker are my choice for real estate agents.'

–Byron Leftwich, Former NFL Player

"In the hands of someone who knew the market"

'Karen is the consummate professional. There are so many words that I could use to describe you, but "professional" says it best. From our initial meeting where you so calmly and confidently presented yourself and your process to the follow-up conversations post closing. I truly felt I was in the hands of someone who knew the market, carefully looked at our objectives, and most importantly cared deeply about our success.
As a negotiator and advisor, you are exceptional at understanding and outlining the options, discussing the ramifications, and helping us to make good and sound decisions throughout. Your constant efforts and continuous communication made the process a success and diminished the angst that can be so present.
You brought other true professionals into the prices. From the photographer to the carpet cleaners and window washers, we were thrilled with their services and prices.
Helping us to price our home correctly and presenting it to the market is such a completely appealing way is why we were able to go under contract within 10 days of listing. I would highly recommend you to anyone who is considering hiring you as their Realtor.'
-Joe Lagomarcino, Washington, D.C. 

"Drives a hard bargain, performs as an honest realtor"

'I don't ordinarily write letters of recommendation but in this instance, I wanted you to know what a great experience my wife, Lina and I have had being guided by Karen thru the "ins and outs" of rental markets in Washington and Northern Virginia, and finding us the perfect home. I've moved more times than I can remember the past 30 years in Europe, and North America, and I've worked with a considerable number of real estate agents along the way to scout out and secure offices and homes. I'd like to believe I know what I'm talking about when I say Karen is terrific. She knows and understands the market, offers solid advice, has a good eye for detail, drives a hard bargain, performs as an honest realtor as appropriate, she's available 24/7, and she's extremely courteous, kind and efficient.'
-Client, Washington, D.C. 

"Made us feel comfortable about moving to a different state"

'It was a pleasure working with Wetherly, she found the perfect home for our family and made us comfortable about moving to a different state. She was very knowledgable about the surrounding area and always kept the line of communication open.'

-Jessica Haren and Dan Haren, Former Pitcher for the Washington Nationals

"Easy to communicate with"

'We had a great experience working with Wetherly. She was very easy to communicate with and searched hard to find our family a place to live in a short amount of time. We appreciate her good work and are very happy with our place in Alexandria.'

-Katy and Chad Tracy, Former Pitcher for the Washington Nationals
