Real Estate Professional
Get to Know Me...
My name is Renee Barackman and I have lived in the Kansas City area my entire life. I attended St. Teresa’s Academy and graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Kansas. After college I got married to my high school sweetheart. My husband and I now have a 19-year-old son, a 16-year-old daughter and Kernel – our king-sized Golden Retriever.
Living in Kansas City my whole life has been a great help to my real estate career. I know many different areas of the city, about the schools, and what the areas have to offer. Having an understanding of the areas is a very important factor in buying or selling your home. So that I can work all over the area I am licensed in both Kansas and Missouri.
Communication is another key factor in making the real estate experience a positive one. I feel very strongly that frequent communication with the people I am working with is very important. I want everyone I work with to know everything that is going on and feel comfortable calling me anytime. I understand this is the biggest investment most people make and I take that very seriously.
I am very honored to be a part of the #1 Koehler Bortnick Team. We can provide you with the best real estate marketing and knowledge of the market. Contact me TODAY and I would be happy to tell you all about the Koehler Bortnick Difference!
What My Clients Say...
“I can’t say enough great things about Renee. She made this process such a great experience for my husband and I. She was very approachable and we always felt comfortable contacting her at anytime. She was always available to answer our questions or hear any concerns or uncertainties we had. I have already recommended her to family and friends.”
-Ryan & Amy Kamps
“My husband and I moved to Kansas City from Arlington, VA and didn’t have a clue of what we wanted or should look for. Renee was recommended to us so we figured we’d give her a shot. We were immediately impressed with her knowledge of the surrounding areas and her dedication to helping us find the perfect house. We initially would pick a house here and there to view which was nice and easy to schedule. But once we decided we had a shorter timeline to move than originally planned, we started requesting showings the night before and often times at odd hours and Renee was always available and always came through for us. She wowed us with her ability to see things in homes we would never know to look for and often times saved us time by giving us an honest opinion on why we should or shouldn’t consider a home. By the time we were ready to make an offer, she worked with us until 11pm making sure we could counter and get everything we wanted. By the next day at noon, she had everything prepared for us to sign for our mortgage papers. We couldn’t imagine working with anyone else and were so blessed to have had her by our side when making one of the biggest decisions of our lives. We would definitely recommend Renee to anyone looking for a new place to call home in the KC area!”
“Renee Barackman was by far the best agent I’ve ever worked with. I interviewed 2 other brokers before selecting Renee, but they simply did not compare. Here are just a few things that set Renee apart from the other 2 agents:
1. Renee came prepared with comps very specific to my area. Other agents showed me comps outside of my area that were listed higher in an attempt to “dazzle” me with the prospect of a higher selling price.
2. Renee listened to me and made an attempt to get to know me as a person. Other agents were too focused on trying to sell themselves.
3. Renee’s marketing materials were light years beyond the other agent’s materials. As a professional Graphic Designer, this gave me the confidence that my home would be represented in the best possible way.
4. Renee assured me that she would use a professional photographer to capture my home. She even offered to pay for this cost out of her own pocket to win my business.
5. Renee was extremely responsive from the moment we met. She was the only agent to ask for my business (very important) and she provided selling scenarios without me having to ask for them.
There was one trait that stood out among all of the others I’ve just mentioned, and it’s something that can’t be “trained”. Renee has the unique ability to put someone like me at ease during one of the most stressful times in my life – not an easy task! Ultimately, there was one single factor that made me choose Renee over the other agents I interviewed. The other two agents actually increased my anxiety and made me feel overwhelmed after our first meeting. After meeting with Renee, I felt relaxed and encouraged.”
