About Us


The Barker family has been a part of the Santa fe community for four generations. Our roots are strong, deep and widespread.

N. B. Laughlin Barker came to Santa Fe from Texas on horseback in the 1880s, and he served as a Territorial Supreme Court Judge in the early 1900s.

His grandson, third-generation Santa Fean Laughlin Barker, became closely involved in Santa Fe real estate more than thirty years ago. Santa Fe was still a small town then, and his company was one of its few Santa Fe real estate brokerages. Laughlin’s reputation and friendships garnered him numerous loyal clients by demonstrating attention to detail, fairness, honesty and integrity.

Today Laughlin’s sons John and David Barker own and operate Barker Management Company, and they continue this successful business philosophy, taking pride in the successful long-term business relationships developed with the owners for whom it provides professional property management in Santa Fe.
