Testimonials

 

This is what I plan to tell my friends and  neighbors about Tracy Barker:

I was lucky enough to find an excellent Real Estate Agent. She is a miracle worker!

Tracy Barker loves helping people. She is a problem solver. She gets things done in a hurry.

Tracy is very professional.  Even though she has years of experience, she is constantly updating her skills with real estate coursework. She takes advantage of new technology and can offer her clients options such as beautiful professional photographs, which she takes herself,  as well as brings on other professionals with stills, 3D images, video and aerial videos of properties for real estate web site viewing.  In order to reach a wide audience, her brokerage has international market access.  Tracy has many contacts in the industry which leads to interest in her listings.

The option to sign documents online, saving valuable time is offered, however, Tracy adapts to her client’s needs and gives personal attention to each situation.  If you choose to sign documents in person, that is fine. If you have any questions, she is there for you. She has available a kind team of people ready to help with everything to ready your property for sale, from yard work, site cleanup, packing, furniture moving and more.  (She has arranged this as a helpful service for clients.)

Tracy is not in the industry for money alone. She cares. I was very happy with her work and plan to have her  as my Real Estate Agent in future.

Thank heaven I found you Tracy!

Her immediate attention to problems and resolutions made our experience with Tracy outstanding.
If you want to sell your property we highly recommend her services.
Also that bouquet of fresh flowers and security check-ins were a special touch.

– Paul & Beth Fuller

Tracy has made a very difficult time for me incredibly easier. Having my mom pass away, I had to sell her house from a different city. Tracy used her connections and compassionate attitude to make sure I didn’t even have to worry about anything related to the house sale. I was truly impressed by how she went over and above just out of her own desire to want to make it easier for me.
A huge thank you to Tracy, and to Tracy’s team for making the most difficult time slightly easier. Tracy has the best team!
I have experience with realtors, and I can say with confidence, Tracy is the best. She works for you.

– Kim Gilbertson

Tracy was AMAZING!!!! She goes above and beyond. She is compassionate, hard working and makes the process so easy.

We have known Tracy for many years, she has always been so helpful and taking the extra mile for my family and my parents. She sold our home before it was even online for public to view and then found us our dream home. Everything we wanted on our list and at the price we could afford. I highly recommend using her as your realtor. She looks out for your best interest and helps in every way she can! Even in pointing you in the right direction for financing she saved us lots of $$$ . She also loves kids my daughter still asks about her! You won’t regret taking her on as your agent promise! Thank you Tracy for all your hard work and love!

It’s very refreshing to know that a true professional, such a Tracy, is there to help you navigate and alleviate  the stresses of purchases or selling your home. There isn’t anyone more qualified to have on your team during any real estate transaction than Tracy! I highly recommend her! You won’t be disappointed.

– Lena Clark

Tracy always has such a wonderful disposition and is a real pleasure to work with!

– Julie N Boake

Tracy Barker is the best realtor we know. We listed our home with her in February and our house was sold in March. She wastes no time or expense, taking professional pictures, putting them into an amazing brochure with all the details and features.
Tracy advertised and promoted to make sure our home got sold. February 2010 was slow time and the economy was declining. Acreages are tough to sell at the best of times. We got two offers within that month and we sold for almost our asking price.
Tracy Barker is the best, and we will recommend her to everyone we know. What makes her outstanding, is her keen eye for detail and she offers her expertise.
If you want your house sold soon, call Tracy.

– Sandy & Earl Kimball

 

We truly appreciate all the hard work you put in to help sell our home and we wish to thank you very much.
We received exceptional personal service from the very moment we met you until all the purchase documents were signed, sealed and delivered. Your honest, positive attitude, and personal commitment should be commended.
For anyone looking for a real estate agent to help sell their home I would highly recommend your services. You provided us with more than we expected including – but certainly not limited to – the profession photographs you took of our house, your personal website, the timely ads placed in the local paper and the beautiful laminated colored posters of our house which you hand delivered to the mortgage advisors of the local banks.
We never hesitated to pick up the phone when we had the slightest concern and you always made yourself available to answer our questions and keep us posted as to the progress of our sale. Your dedication to us was more than evident at all times – through and despite your bout of pneumonia!
We also appreciate all the contact information you provided for the host of professionals who helped make our house sale and our move trouble free from lawyers to movers and all others in between.
Again, we feel very comfortable recommending you to anyone – your work speaks for itself!

– Denise & Jerry

Tracy Barker with RE/MAX listed and sold our home within 30 days. Selling an acreage home and property is a stressful event however Tracy made our experience a very pleasant one. She marketed our home using professional photographers accenting internal and external pictures and prepared a multi page colour orientation booklet and virtual technology. Prequalifying and scheduled viewing by appointment only brought the most serious potential buyers. Tracy’s experienced support team combined with her knowledge of selling Signature Properties made the full circle from listing to the sale an enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend Tracy for your sales representative.

– Brent & Sheila Gordon

To the future clients of Tracy Barker –
When our family thinks of Tracy Barker, we think fun, bubbly, outgoing and determined.
Tracy came into our home, for us to sign her as our realtor with her trusty LUCKY pen, and let me tell you how this woman and her pen changed our lives.
Tracy got 2 phone calls within 12 hours of placing the sign in front of our home wanting to book viewings on a Sunday afternoon, which for us meant that they had to work around our dinner with friends and our daughters nap time, and she pulled it off.
Within 6 hours of our first viewing Tracy brought us an offer for our full asking price, So we happily signed once again with her Lucky pen. So to Tracy we thank, because of her we can now go back to our roots and finish or growing family.
If Tracy wants you to use her LUCKY pen I say go for it.

– Kate Macdonald

Tracy represented herself professionally. She saw the value in our property. We were very pleased with the marketing exposure that our property received. The media, photos and brochures that Tracy made available showed us that she goes that extra mile!

– Bryan & Aimee Russell

I can think of no better testimonial to a Real Estate agent than to say that we hired her to sell our home after we bought a home from one of her clients: that is what we did! How could we not afford to seek her out, Tracy’s excellent bargaining abilities, professionalism and honesty were exactly what we needed and wanted in our Real Estate agent.
Tracy did not let us down in the sale of our home and we will gladly use her services again. Thanks Tracy for being such a great agent.

– David & Suzanne Petrovich

We wanted to thank you for your dedication and hard work in the sale of our house not to mention your assistance with the purchase of our new home.
The thought of leaving our home of 25 years and downsizing was incredibly overwhelming for both of us. We just didn’t know where to start!
You were able to ease our fears with your confidence and your dedication to the process to close both deals was amazing. Your knowledge and understanding of the Okotoks market, as well as your creative marketing strategy, contributed to the quick sale of our property and we were thrilled with the price you brought for our sale!
Your patience and understanding was consistent throughout and we could rely on your advice and support. As a result of your professional efforts, we are very satisfied with the selling and buying experience.
We are now looking forward to settling into our new home.

– Dorothy Moore

I just wanted to take a moment to express my appreciation to Tracy Barker in particular for her outstanding efforts in the sale of my home at 65 Westfall Crescent in Okotoks. Tracy not only sold my property, but had to structure the sale to another property in order to make it all come together. She displayed a tremendous amount of ingenuity, patience and integrity in dealing with a very difficult and often frustrating situation. I would not hesitate to recommend her services to friends and associates in the future.

– Dale Campbell

My Family and I wanted to send a note of thanks to you for your services. We appreciated your knowledge of the present market and your keen understanding of our needs for a new home. The patients and professionalism you displayed was excellent and the extra time and legwork involved to make the purchase a smooth experience was appreciated. Also, thanks for referring us to a fantastic and efficient mover, RC Movers from Tracy’s Team made the move that much easier.

– Mike, Carla & Ashley Stauffer

Just thought I would check out your web page and it is very good. I want to thank you also for your fun & spirited but professional help and support in our efforts to sell our home and purchase our dream piece in Okotoks. Always to support Team Tracy.

– Tony & Melinda Merkle

Dan & I would like to thank you for all of the hard work and support that you provided to us when selling our home. Your enthusiasm, professionalism and honesty provide a sincere comfort to your clients.  We will definitely use your services again.

– Dan & Brenda Dengis

We are so lucky and blessed to have been referred to Tracy Barker. Tracy made an impression on us the first time we met her. When we called her in the beginning of October, we were in a desperate position; we needed to sell our condo in a virtually unsellable market and buy a new home within two months, as we were expecting the birth of our new baby in just a few short weeks. We could not keep a baby in the small place we were in, nor could we afford to buy a new home without first selling, and in this time of urgency, it was essential for us to find a special person who could help us.

Tracy’s professionalism was immediately apparent: she had researched other units in the building that had been previously on the market, she was forthright about expectations, and she gave us valuable direction about how to present our condo to make it more appealing to potential buyers. Her love for her job was evident from the onset, and it soon became clear that this passion was fueled by a deep desire to help others. In my state of panic, Tracy was also able to calm my nerves with her openness, positivism, and assurances that she would do all she could to sell our property. She also encouraged us to share our dreams about the home we wanted so that she could help us find the perfect house that we could afford, and she gave us invaluable advice when we were looking at potential properties, pointing out many considerations, guided by her professional experience, that would have otherwise been overlooked by us.

But it is Tracy’s extreme devotion that makes her stand out above all others. As time ticked away and my due date grew closer, I was at least assured that we could do no better than her. Tracy worked tirelessly in an effort to bring in potential buyers, both by formally advertising our property and racking her brain for contacts. She brainstormed innovative ideas in an effort to provide us with a home for the baby should the condo not sell immediately. Her communication to us was constant, honest, and detailed, and she was available to us around the clock for the simultaneous buying and selling process. At one point when I looked at her webpage, I was practically in tears; I saw that she had several other properties on the market, all of which were worth far greater amounts than our small condo, but unlike most other realtors who would probably focus their attention on the places where they were most likely to receive the greatest profit, she dedicated herself to us so much that she made us feel as if we were her only clients.

When we found our dream house, one that we thought out of reach, Tracy worked her magic, and through an extraordinary amount of patience, creativity, and long hours of work and difficult negotiation, she sold our condo and helped us bid for the home we fell in love with at a price we could afford. Doing so required massive communication between our buyer, two banks, our broker, and ourselves, and we are so indebted to her for her extreme effort and communication skills.

Our little girl arrived unexpectedly three weeks early, with many complications during the delivery, which resulted in a two-week hospital stay for us, during which time my husband also underwent a scheduled surgery. As Tracy put it, she had our backs. She went to the bank and brought the papers to the hospital for me to sign. She took care of both home inspections for us. She even referred us to movers from “Tracy’s Team.” When we got out of the hospital, all we needed to do was move into our new home.

We now are so happy with our beautiful daughter, Lily, in our beautiful home. My husband once remarked that after all the help she gave us, Tracy restored his faith that there are good people in the world, and that it is not entirely run by money as it might seem. Lily is blessed to have “Auntie Tracy” in her life, as are we. We could not provide a higher recommendation.

– Lee & Pattie O’Donnell

From our first meeting with Tracy we knew we had found the realtor to list our acreage with. Tracy has an enthusiasm for her profession that is contagious, for buyers and sellers alike. Tracy took the time to put together the information package, photos, and marketing strategy properly, and professionally. The day she dropped off the pamphlets at our property she told us “Get packing, cause you’re moving!” and she wasn’t kidding, Tracy sold our acreage in one week! Not an easy feat with all the acreages currently for sale. We could not be happier with the level of service Tracy Barker provided for us, we would recommend her to anyone that wants to sell/buy a property. If you choose Tracy barker for your next real estate deal, you won’t be disappointed.

We just wanted to take a moment to express our appreciation to Tracy Barker with Re/MAX.  From the moment we first met Tracy, we knew she had our best interests at heart and that we were not just another client. Tracy’s very professional work ethic and strong confidence and determination made us feel that we had the right Gal.  We appreciated her honesty and willingness to answer every question we had and grateful that she took the time to explain everything to us! Tracy also took the stress away from any situation with her humour, which we liked very much.
We listed our property with Tracy at the end of April, 2013.  Her advice was invaluable, we priced it to sell at a reasonable price, she used professional photographers to accent the home and prepared a colour booklet that turned out fantastic and guess what… the acreage sold in 3 ½ months. We had competing offers and sold above our asking price.  Selling an acreage in that amount of time was amazing to us and we want to give all the credit to Tracy with her great knowledge of the industry.  We also want to thank Tracy for her hard work, dedication and guidance through all the negotiations.
Tracy, you are a gem!   You are an amazing and fun person to be around keep up the good work.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Tracy Barker to anyone who is buying or selling property, she is first class!
Sincerely we wish you all the success in the future!

– Harold & Joann Wells

Thank you for your help.  You went above and beyond our expectations to find us a wonderful home and in the perfect location!  We learned so much from you and you are an amazing person.
We are so grateful we found you to help us sell our home and purchase our new one.
We Thank You.

– The Burton Family

We would highly recommend Tracy Barker as a realtor, whether you are looking at buying or selling a property.
We first encountered Tracy when we enquired about and later bought a home she had listed. We were so impressed, we then asked her to represent us on the sale of our property too.
From the very beginning, we noticed her positive energy, honest and up front attitude, and appreciated how she always kept us informed. Her experience and expertise was comforting and all the hard work she put in was obvious.   Tracy definitely went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that everything worked out from start to finish; even making sure the move went smoothly.
Buying and selling can sometimes be very stressful, but Tracy does everything possible to make it a positive experience.
Thanks Tracy, it has been a great experience with you as our realtor!

– Andy & Coreena Carr

Moving is recognized as one of the most stressful events a person can experience. Our realtor extraordinaire, Tracy Barker, not only successfully sold my house during this difficult economic downturn, but she was also incredibly supportive and compassionate of the emotional toll associated with the sale.
To sell a home, you need viewers and Tracy made our home a priority with numerous viewings, while being considerate of the time required for us to vacate the house during winter with two large dogs.  Her professional manner, coupled with a positive and supportive attitude made this challenging experience as stress free as possible.
Tracy Barker epitomizes honesty and integrity in the real estate industry.  She was always very supportive when frustration would set in and handled prospective buyers with aplomb.  I would recommend Tracy Barker without hesitation and look forward to working with her in the future.
