Forbes Global Properties Member
Baker & Co.
Baker & Co. is a full-service boutique firm that caters to the unique needs of discerning clients. As a prominent competitor in the Houston luxury real estate market, we are pleased to have been selected as the exclusive representative for Forbes Global Properties in Houston and surrounding areas.
Forbes Global Properties is an invitation-only association of international real estate experts created to showcase luxury homes. Forbes Global Properties leverages the audience and worldwide reach of the respected Forbes media brand to engage, inform, and delight buyers and sellers of luxury properties.
Our agents frequently work with celebrities and professional athletes, and we understand the special circumstances surrounding high net worth clients. That’s why Baker & Co. provides a range of concierge services that extend far beyond the agent’s traditional role. Our network of extensively vetted vendors has been carefully selected for their reliability and dedication to superior service.
TRADITIONAL WORK ETHIC; INNOVATIVE APPROACH
Founder JAIME BAKER hails from four generations of home expertise. The Houston native traces her Texas roots back to the 1840s when the Bakers established a successful general contracting business. Their enduring influence has earned the clan the designation of cornerstone legacy family. Each succeeding generation has branched out and added to the family’s heritage, including Jaime’s father, a highly respected home remodeling specialist for more than forty years. With the establishment of Baker & Co., his daughter has claimed a new domain, using cutting edge technology to provide bespoke services to the luxury real estate market.
“I come from a long line of innovators,” says Jaime. “My great-grandmother, Lucille Beckner, was instrumental in developing a local multiple listing service that became the basis for the MLS used by all real estate agencies today. She was also part of the team that designed the Astrodome!” This same ancestor served as President of the Texas Women’s Council of REALTORS®, and the Vice President of the National Women’s Council of REALTORS®. An engaging speaker, she traveled widely addressing real estate organizations throughout the country. She personally sold more than 300 houses in one year, which is a remarkable accomplishment. In addition to owning her agency, Beckner partnered with a colleague, Pauleen Moore, to craft the first real estate licensing course for the Texas Real Estate Commission. Her contributions to the industry are a proud part of the Baker family legacy.
In much the same way, Jaime is also a leading innovator in real estate. An early adopter of technology, Jaime recognized the potential for social media to influence her industry. Prior to founding Baker & Co. she trained colleagues to use social media to reach potential clients in cyberspace. That initiative earned Jaime a place on Property Spark’s “Top 20 List of Young Realtors on Social Media 2017” and she was a featured speaker at the Real Estate Domination Summit that same year. She continues to incorporate digital technology to create curated home tours for prospective buyers. “Our media professionals are top notch, and their skills are valuable for the international clients that we work with through Forbes Global Properties. For clients geographically unable to visit a home in person, our digital tour is the next best thing to being there.”
Baker & Co. understands that home is a very personal reflection of each individual, and they offer non-traditional services to help ensure a harmonious transition to a new space. Upon request, the firm will provide a numerology report detailing the numerical significance of the residence address as it relates to the divine energy of the home. It’s this type of out-of-the-box thinking that elevates our service to an unexpected level.
INTUITIVE, CONSULTATIVE APPROACH THAT ALIGNS WITH CLIENT GOALS
