We provide clients with real estate legal services through the Law Offices of Chris Barker, P.C.  Our law practice handles all types of real estate disputes and transactions, including landlord-tenant issues, disputes with government agencies, investment and transaction structuring, and leasing.

Yorkshire Realty is named after the street in Santa Monica, California on which founders Chris Barker and Nida Rinthapol made their first real estate acquisition.  At the time, Chris and Nida were pursuing their own careers, but had a shared goal of financial independence.  The home in Santa Monica started them on that path.  They then focused on multi-family investment properties and developed a practical approach to acquiring assets that combined significant monthly income, low risk, and long-term upside.  Through this journey, Chris and Nida found their calling in real estate.
