What clients are saying...

“Jim has been my families realtor for many years, in those years he has shown us nothing but respect, hard work and dedication to his job. He is such a caring man and a wonderful person. He has proved he is one of the best realtors out there!”

“Just over a year ago we met Julie Baker at a Sunday Open House showing of a home on Heritage Mountain. We had been casually looking at homes in the area but had not really made up our minds yet to change our address. Julie gave us our space to look around but in her friendly way answered any questions we had. Needless to say Zara and I were very impressed and felt very comfortable with Julie because within a few weeks we asked her to start seriously looking for us.

The rest is history. Julie had listened to our comments and the very first weekend after we enlisted Julie and her husband Jim as our realtors she had found us what is now our dream home.

The next step of course was to sell our home in Tree Tops and, because of their expertise, we were able to sell our Tree Tops home for more than I had originally expected. Both Julie and Jim showed us how to make our home almost irresistible to the right buyer within a few days of our first open house we had a sale.

As far as we’re concerned they are the perfect team. Julie with her expert keen eye for decorating and all the details of presentation, not to mention her friendly and very outgoing manner, and then Jim with his expertise in all the complicated technicalities and details involved in the sale. As the sale moved through the process involved Jim was always available day or night to answer questions and help to facilitate the process.

But most of all it is the fact that they listen and that they really care and take pride in doing the best they can for their clients. 

Zara and I would recommend Jim and Julie Baker to anyone who is buying and/or selling a home. You could not engage any better realtors or finer people to work on your behalf.

We are so very happy in our home and we will always be grateful to Jim and Julie for helping to make this happen.”

“I was asked to do a letter of reference for Jim and Julie Baker, and I do so with great pleasure. I have dealt with many real estate agents over the past 16 years and by far, they are probably the best I have had the pleasure to work with. I am new to the Port Coquitlam area and was a bit nervous about my new venture. They spent a lot of time, especially on my first meeting, of helping me get to know the area. They went far above the call of duty to help me get acquainted with the area and to help me find an area of Port Coquitlam where my family and I would be happy. They are very knowledgeable about the schools in the area, which was very important to me as I have 3 children all in the school system. By the time I actually did buy in the area I felt so secure in my purchase, that even though my children had not seen their future home, I knew they would be happy. And were they ever!   

Jim and Julie took the time after each viewing to ask me what I thought about the house we had just viewed. Although this may seem like an obvious thing for a realtor to do, sadly it isn’t. While we were in each home during the viewing they were able to offer suggestions on how to renovate to make it suit what I wanted, a very important feature when purchasing on a tight budget. If Jim wasn’t available to show a particular home I wanted to see, Julie would be able to do so and vice versa. They make an amazing team and complement each other perfectly. They both bend over backwards to make their clients feel comfortable with their purchase and go through whatever hoops are necessary to make a purchase happen.   

Without a doubt I would recommend Jim and Julie to anyone wishing to purchase a home. Their knowledge about the markets is amazing and their friendliness is even more so. They are not like regular realtors who keep you at an arms distance, but true people who care about their clients.”

“It is our pleasure to recommend Jim and Julie Baker as real estate agents for anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. We have recently sold and purchased a home with Jim and Julie’s help, and can’t begin to describe how amazing they were! 

In looking for our new home in North Vancouver, Jim and Julie really took the time to listen to us, ensuring that they thoroughly understood what we were looking for. They showed us home after home, asking questions  to make sure that we found a home that ‘fit’ us. We never felt pressured; Jim and Julie were incredibly patient, always taking the time to go through the pros and cons of each prospective purchase. 

When we found our new home and let Jim and Julie know that we were ready to make an offer, their guidance and suggestions were invaluable. They worked diligently until the 11th hour to help us close a relatively complicated sale!  

Jim and Julie were an obvious choice when it came to selling my mother’s home in Coquitlam. They know the area very well, and are very active within the Tri-Cities community. The Bakers did a preliminary walk-through with us, making suggestions of how we could improve the home before putting it on the market. They provided us with excellent referrals to local trades people and businesses to help us get some of the work done. 

Once her house was on the market, Jim and Julie worked incredibly hard to show my mom’s house. They were very attentive to our concerns, and gave us regular updates to their many showings and open houses. Even after we received an offer, the Bakers continued to host weekly open houses and kept in touch with interested buyers, just in case the subjects did not clear. This diligent work ethic saved the day when the original offer did fall through, as Jim and Julie were immediately able to let other interested parties know that my mom’s home was still available. My mom’s house sold very quickly for a great price thanks very much to Jim and Julie’s hard work. 

We found Jim and Julie to be incredibly attentive realtors, making us feel as if we were their only clients, even though we know that this is not the case! They always returned our calls and texts immediately, we never felt neglected or unimportant. They are both highly personable and easily relate to everyone we met. At every opportunity, they went above and beyond in helping us buy and sell our homes. 

Without hesitation, we regularly recommend Jim and Julie Baker to all of our family and friends. Should we ever need to buy or sell again, they will be our first and only choice as realtors.”

“I am a first time home buyer and was starting the process of visiting open houses and looking online for places that caught my interest when I met Lauren at one of these open houses. Immediately there was a connection and she understood and got that I was new to the whole process and offered suggestions and wished me the best in my search. Her and I connected a week or so later and began discussing what I was searching for. I began to receive emails that matched my search criteria and Lauren offered to meet me at any of these places at any time that was convenient for me. There were times when the process did get a bit frustrating and the search turned up limited results, but Lauren encouraged me to keep an open mind and still check out some of these places in order to get a feel for the whole process and experience. Lauren is phenomenal and honestly I would not have been able to go through this process without her help, guidance and experience. When we would visit condos, she was always prepared with documentation and a run-down of the building and the unit we were visiting. She is professional yet fun and makes the whole experience flow smoothly. As a first time home buyer, I was very fortunate to run into Lauren and have her help me find my dream home…I would recommend her to my friends for sure because of her determination and dedication. Thank you Lauren for everything and for finding me my dream home! Cheers,”

“We just wanted to say thank you for all your help during this whole process. As you know, as first-time home buyers it was very stressful for us and you have made everything so much easier and enjoyable!

Since we came to Canada 8 years ago, we have been living by ourselves without much parental support. When it came to making such a huge purchase ever and not having much guidance and support from family, we are so happy we found you! Everyone has treated us so well and given us an abundance of great advice and support (and made us feel like home!).

We appreciate you going through every detail in the condo with us, assisting us during the negotiation process, reviewing the documents with us, giving us suggestions on home decor and even getting us snacks during the inspection! With you being there with us and sharing with us your knowledge and experience, we can rest assured we have made an informed decision and are proud to own our first home.

It was such a pleasure working with you. Thank you again for everything and we hope to work with you again in the future! Best,”

“Jim is amazing, honest and reliable. I would use him over and over.”

“My family first met Jim Baker from the Remax Sabre Realty Group in 2012, when we were looking to buy a home in Coquitlam. Jim came recommended to us by a friend of ours. With our blended family, and different needs, preferences, and expectations about the house, it was a real challenge. It soon became apparent that we were very lucky to have Jim as our realtor. He brought professionalism, extensive knowledge of the housing market, the area, as well as a whole array of related topics, that are important. If he couldn’t answer a question, which was rare, he would offer to inquire and find out. He always followed through with this. Jim also brought patience; not a quality that is an immediately obvious asset as a realtor, but not feeling pushed, rushed, or pressured while making such a big decision was a relief. Jim stuck with us when we suddenly decided to change our criteria in our housing search. He also always had a smile, a wonderful sense of humour, and a very obvious sense of job satisfaction. He taught us that a good realtor needs to be a peoples’ person, enjoying the interactions, and having an intuitive sense of what is important for the client. We have been so happy with our house, and as we are thinking of the next stage of our lives, we have recently contacted him to help us again. Thank you, Jim!”

“Our story is an unusual one. My partner was down in Texas finishing school, while I was here in Vancouver not even considering purchasing a home. One Sunday morning, my partner sent me an invitation to an open house right in Port Coquitlam and urged me to go see it – as it was just the sort of thing he was imagining for us to move in to upon his return. So I went. I checked out the place and fell madly in love with the apartment. As it was a Sunday, and offers for the unit were to be submitted in 24 hours by the end of the day Monday, I knew I was in for a challenge. All the realtor offices were closed, but by some luck and fate, Jim Baker was working overtime into the wee hours of the night and I happened to catch him there by chance. After explaining the situation we were in, the complexity of my partner being out of the country, and the time frame we had to work with, Jim Baker assured me that we could make it work. And that is exactly what he did. With financing lined up and a few excellent tips for submitting my offer, Jim managed to guide me through the purchase of my first apartment in a matter of days. Jim was incredibly professional, caring and attentive. His confidence and honesty reassured me that this was the right place to be at the right time, and his commitment to us and our complex situation was unwavering. I couldn’t have felt more comfortable and confident that I had the right realtor on my side. His support and professionalism was exactly what you wish for from the person who sees you through one of the biggest milestones of life. I have consistently recommended Jim to friends and family for the past few years, and will continue doing so, as he certainly earned my loyalty.”
