Offering top REALTOR® services in a comfortable, relaxed manner

My name is Don Barar and I am a Realtor with HomeSmart.  As a Realtor, I help both buyers and sellers meet their real estate objectives throughout the Phoenix Metropolitan Area.  I have extensive knowledge of each of the communities located in and around Fountain Hills, and will work tirelessly on your behalf to make your next Fountain Hills, Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Mesa, and Gold Canyon home purchasing or selling experience a pleasant and successful one.


Valuation is an extremely important part of buying and selling a home as similar properties can widely vary in value. To help with valuation, I use advanced statistical methods including regression models and time series analysis. To date, using these methods and great negotiation skills, my clients have enjoyed home purchases that are averaging 2.75% below appraised value. For purposes of scale, if a home appraised at $500,000 my clients are averaging purchasing that home at $486,250.
As a Realtor I am unique in that I maintain complete control over the creative process. This includes all photography, development of the marketing materials, and generation of videography. I am an expert in the use of the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite including:
  • Photoshop.
  • InDesign for brochure development.
  • Premier Pro/After Effects for video editing.
  • Audition for the enhancement of sound.

Recently I have added aerial photography and videography with a DJI Phantom 4 Pro to my creative efforts. I am licensed by the FAA for commercial drone use and carry the necessary liability insurance. I believe that aerial photography adds another dimension to the successful marketing of your home.

Nothing satisfies me more than seeing the smiles that come with a successful real estate transaction. Thank you again for considering me as your Realtor. More about me.

I grew up in the Detroit Metropolitan area and spent my young adult life in the Midwest earning a BS in Chemistry from Oakland University, a MS in Chemical Engineering from Purdue, and an MBA from the University of Michigan. I had a long and successful career in site management for chemical manufacturing businesses prior to becoming an Arizona Realtor in 2013 registered as a Donald Barar PLLC with the Arizona Corporation Commission.

Outside of work, I am an avid landscape photographer with my 4x5 view camera and a photographer of the night sky. On many a clear, moonless night you will see me on the driveway with my telescope for an evening of photographing the heavens. My work can be viewed at DGBStarscapes.com
