Steven Barks - President & COO
Steven Barks is the President & COO of Worth Clark Realty. He began his real estate career in 2009 as an agent for a small startup property management company in Minneapolis, MN. A natural self-starter, Steven hit the ground running and after only six months, he set new records and became the top agent in the company. Over the course of four years, he went on to build and lead a team that continued to break all company records for both sales and transaction volume. He also played a significant role in growing the company’s total number of properties managed from just a few hundred properties, to over three thousand.
In 2013, after four years of being ‘in the trenches’ and working in the field as an agent, Steven shifted gears to focus on a passion shared by Worth Clark Realty founder, Bryan Bowles; the passion of building and growing an innovative, technology-based real estate company designed to serve today’s modern agents and clients alike. With humble beginnings, the small startup with just 15 agents and 30 rental properties to its portfolio, has since exploded. Worth Clark Realty now has over 350 agents and expanded the number of properties managed to over 1,200 residential homes until the property management division was sold in March 2018. Worth Clark Realty's impressive growth was recognized by Inc Magazine's list of the 5000 fastest growing companies in the country for three years in a row (2016-2018), peaking as the 89th fastest growing privately held company in in 2016. Headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, the company now serves four states and continues to grow each year.
Steven started his current position in March 2018, and continues to pursue the goal of making Worth Clark Realty an industry leader in real estate.
