List your home

with your local



In 2017, almost 50% of El Dorado County residential real estate listings priced over $450,000, failed to sell the first time around.
In 2018, we introduced a new, comprehensive real estate marketing plan designed to help clients seize opportunities and avoid the common mistakes that can lead to a failed listing.
So if you thought that all real estate agents did the same thing when it comes to selling homes, think again!

What people are saying about the Barnes Real Estate Team!

Connie’s team performed extremely professional work to market and sell our home.

We hired Connie Barnes RE/MAX Gold sales team to represent the sale of our $1M+ home in El Dorado Hills. From the outset, Connie’s team performed extremely professional work to market and sell our home. The marketing was truly exceptional which was professional grade photography and videography, including drone generated video. Additionally, the marketing analysis was world class, which enabled us to price the house appropriately to sell in the required timeframe. All work was performed promptly with clear explanations of all deliverables and requirements.

Our sales agent, Karen Dancer was very proactive in the marketing and sale of our house. As opportunities emerged, Karen kept us well informed and offered valuable advice (backed by data and statistics) throughout the process. As we negotiated an offer, she was active in guiding us and managing the buyers and their agent. The deal was threatened on an occasion due to contingencies on the buyers’ end. Although the deal experienced challenges and delays along the way, Karen worked feverishly to ensure that all requirements were met, and that we remained informed of issues and status. This was a specific area where Karen demonstrated her expertise in managing the process and keeping the deal intact.

I am pleased to state that the deal closed to the satisfaction of both parties. However, Karen’s work was not complete at that point. She remained active in working with the buyers to ensure that the property was handed off according to a schedule that was satisfactory to buyer and seller. Karen has demonstrated her value as a seasoned sales professional. She offers candid advice and insight which is extremely valuable as one progresses through the sales process.

The Connie Barnes team’s knowledge, professionalism, and persistence resulted in a very positive outcome for all parties. My wife and I would strongly recommend Connie Barnes RE/MAXGold to any prospective home buyer or seller.

“It was a pleasure working with her.”

Connie Barnes and her team have delivered a very organised and successful house sale experience for me.  I have sold 5 houses in my life and the service and professionalism from Connie and her team were undeniably the best that I have ever had.  Connie is very responsive and helpful navigating the sales process.  She is very organised and runs a very good office.  Her photographer did an outstanding job. Her closing coordinator was very attentive and ensured that nothing was missed.  Her practice colleagues were all on their game.  Bottom line, I sold the house quickly with the help of Connie’s outstanding team.

As a non-trivial bonus, I also found Connie to be a very warm and kind hearted person.  It was a pleasure working with her.

“…we can honestly say Connie and her team are the best Realtors we’ve met.”

“We listed with Connie and the first people who looked at our home bought it. This was due in large part because of her team’s hard work and staging. And we sold for more than listing price! Done deal in an hour! My wife and I have bought and sold many homes in the past 35 years, and we can honestly say Connie and her team are the best Realtors we’ve met. Jim Barnes’ marketing skills are innovative. Connie and her associate, Karen Dancer, were on top of all issues. Communication was great. They returned calls and emails in minutes. They even answered questions and provided communication/docs to our east coast agent for our deal on the new home! Do yourself a favor and get the best, Connie Barnes!”

“Thank you Connie Barnes!”

When I researched for the best realtor in El Dorado county, I knew I had found someone special when we 1st met. You took care of every detail quickly, sold my house very fast and the video Jim made showcased my home and the community beautifully. Thank you so much. I will always be grateful for your kindness and feel so fortunate to have found another wonderful home and community in Tennessee.

Connie and her team know how to treat a client!

Extraordinary service from the initial phone call introduction to closing to turning over our home to the fabulous new owners. Connie and her team (Karen Dancer) were such professionals. We had an unusual situation in that we sold long-distance. We were already in our Oregon home, and once we felt Connie was the right agent for us we mailed her a key which saved us a 600 mile one-way trip. When we left our home last winter we did not know we would list so quickly; therefore, did not leave our home in “show” condition. Connie said not a problem and handled everything; and she did! Our home sold and we drove down to move out. Our home was staged beautifully (I’d buy it again!). In closing, we couldn’t have had a better RE experience. Connie and her team know how to treat a client!

Connie Barnes and her RE/MAX team did an AWESOME job selling our ranch outside Placerville.

 From the professional video that showcased the place so well to the timely and frequent communications about the status of proceedings, we always felt well cared for and important, even though we knew we weren’t her only client.  When our first buyer fell through at the last minute, they made an otherwise devastating situation less painful.  When the subsequent buyer needed a quick closing but had issues, Connie stepped up to the challenge without blinking an eye.  She works hard, makes you feel that your business is important, and helps you see how your property can be – or become – more valuable.  I highly recommend Connie Barnes as your next real estate professional!

It will not take long to find out why Connie Barnes is the top producing agent in the area.

Her team does an exceptional  marketing job. It started with a professional photo shoot that made the house look like a Hollywood set. WOW, we almost had tears in our eyes when we saw it, and will treasure it for years. Always the professional, Connie and her team excell at customer service. You know you are not her only client, but she will make you feel you are. When you can get the best for the same price as the rest, it is a no brainer. Call Connie.

“Sometimes the best way to educate yourself is to learn from someone who is a sales leader in the real estate field.”

Connie and her team create great video presentations and winning marketing plans to sell their real estate listings quickly and for the right price. Putting these materials on your website doesn’t just attract new clients from online, it also reassures the ones you’ve already met that you will do an outstanding job for them.

“far the best experience ever”

Connie Barnes is the most professional and in our case  most patient real estate agent we have ever had the pleasure to work with. My husband and I looked at homes in the El Dorado Hills area for two years until Connie found the one. Connie spent many weekends and weeknights to accommodate our schedule to show us countless homes. After two years of searching she found a new listing that popped up, we were touring the house that day. She makes time for her clients, is extremely professional and knows this area . Our home purchase was seamless, easy and we are loving our home. The Connie Barnes website is amazing, we were able to tour homes online, feeling like we were actually in the home. The combination of her web team and fantastic team of agents is a win win.  This is our 6th home purchase, it was by far the best experience ever. If we ever decide to sell, there’s no question it will be with Connie Barnes.

“Here Is What A Top Real Estate Agent Does To Market Homes!”

I love to see the marketing of top agents like Connie. It’s such a pleasure to see agents that go way beyond the minimum necessary. As you can see from Connie’s site everything she does is meant to knock your socks off! And it does! There is no mistake that photography and video play a major part in Connie’s marketing strategy.

…look at her website traffic and you will quickly see how having such compelling marketing can lead to $48 million in sales.”

I knew I had to interview Connie and her team. It’s not just about the plethora of comparison videos she has, but also her marketing centric posts like this one on the iPhone and this one explaining their team’s marketing plan. They are front and center, fully transparent, and showing the world why they are the best in their local area.
