Jim Headshot

Hi, I’m Jim Barr. As a life-long resident of Central Illinois, I’m proud to call the Peoria area home, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to help you with your Peoria real estate needs.

What makes us different from all of the other Peoria realtors? We work with you from the beginning of your search for a Peoria home, or the sale of your home, through the transaction, to the end – and beyond. Our commitment to you doesn’t end with the close of escrow. We want to make you a client for life. We want our clients to be delighted with their interactions with us – not just satisfied.

I’m Karen Duncan, and I have lived in Illinois most of my life, moving to Central Illinois in 1998. I joined the Jim Barr Group in 2017, bringing 13 years of real estate sales to the team. Buyer representation has been the cornerstone of my business, and I am passionate about finding the perfect Peoria home, and negotiating the best possible price and terms for my buyer clients. Client satisfaction is my greatest measure of success, and I will work tirelessly from offer to closing to ensure a smooth transaction. If you are considering a move, I’d love the opportunity to be your agent.

Our Core Values:

  • Our clients come first.
  • We make choices of integrity.
  • We exceed our clients’ expectations.
  • We create clients for life.

With over 30 years’ combined experience delivering quality results for our clients, find out why over 80% of our business comes from satisfied customers and their referrals. It would be an honor and a privilege to meet you and discuss your plans to buy or sell a Peoria home.
