When our family made the life altering decision to relocate from our mutual home state, it was a very emotional process to say the least. As background, one of the two of us grew up from infancy through high school in the Frazier Mountain area and came back after marriage to raise a family. We are very familiar with the area. Our house was much more than just a house to us—It was a home. When we purchased our home on acreage in Lebec, we envisioned the house and land as our forever home and immediately had big plans for the property. We made intentional updates and renovations that made the property truly feel like a modern ranch style property that overlooked Tejon Ranch. It is a one-of-a-kind property!To sell our home, we needed representation that understood the uniqueness of the property and the specialized marketing plan it would require to attract the type of buyer who not only saw the beauty of the property but was willing to take on the lifestyle associated with it. The uncertainty of the Summer/Fall 2022 real estate market also influenced our decision. We were familiar with several other agents, but looked no further than Barrios Co. Their properties sell! Their real estate listings stand out amongst the others because of their use of professional and realistic photography, 3D tours, and purposeful videography (including aerial drone footage). They are all about the details. Their modern methods of marketing their clients’ properties through social media, online ad campaigns, use of strong professional connections, and even going as far as finding possible matches within the buyers they represent who are looking for a similar property on acreage were all large contributing factors for why our listing maintained continuous interest from day one.Their professional expertise on how to generate and keep a strong listing as well as instructing that all potential buyers be pre-approved and well informed of the property’s details before scheduling any in-person appointments insured that everyone who visited our home was a strong lead and in a financial position to make an offer. This made it possible to sell our house in a timely fashion while realistically being available for showings as a young family with two small children. They hosted several formal Open Houses and were present for all other viewings as private showings. They honestly wanted our house to find its perfect match. “Home is where the heart is.” Selling a beloved property filled with memories can be bittersweet and stressful financially with knowing what the right moves are to make and when. The Barrios husband and wife duo, by the end of the process, felt more like personal friends than just realtors we hired. We never once felt like they were just trying to close on our house and make the sale. They ALWAYS had our best interests as their top priority—we felt very well taken care. Their heart-to-heart conversations with us, giving us the honest feedback without reservation, continuously making sure our real estate sales plan was aligned with our goal of relocating, and appropriately pivoting when needed was what gave us the reassurance, we both needed as a couple to feel comfortable with the sales offer we ultimately accepted. Our property sold in record time!We would undoubtedly recommend Barrios Co. to any friend or family member wanting to sell or purchase in the Greater Frazier Mountain area. They are a dream team that will go to bat for you to close the deal. They are worth every penny!
