Summer in the Real Estate Industry

There's no 'normal' day in real estate. It may begin at 6:45am and end well after 10:00pm. Or it may be a flurry of phone calls throughout the day.


I've been asked multiple times what my "typical" day looks like. There is no typical day. In fact, there's no typical transaction. Each client I encounter brings forth a unique set of needs that I work to meet. Each home sale presents a different set of challenges and details so it's nearly impossible that any transactions are duplicated. However, I wouldn't have it any other way.


The one and only goal I have in working in real estate is to take care of people. If that means I'm showing homes all day in DFW or working with the courier to ensure all the transaction paperwork is ready, I know I'm doing what I can to help my clients love their home.


Do you know someone who could use some real estate assistance? Don't hesitate to send them my way. I'll support them through the entire process of buying or selling.

Fast Fact: Homeowners in Scotland paint their door red when they pay off their mortgage.

Why does DFW Home Invest in Homestaging when Selling a Home?

If you elect to sell your home with Rob Barker DFW Homes, a full, custom home staging consultation package is included. Why? Because staged home sell faster than non-staged home and typically at a higher price.


The purpose of staging is to prepare the home for the potential buyers. They have to be able to walk through your home and picture their family living there, not your dirty socks in the laundry room. A professional home stager also works to showcase each room to it's fullest potential. Often times, this is just a quick re-arrange of your current furniture or swapping pieces between rooms. The cost for such staging can quickly run as high as $250 for a 3 hour session, but if you partner with Rob Barker DFW Homes, this is included in our services - free of charge to the homeowner.
