Geoff and I have over 40 years of combined real estate experience. We love what we do and we believe our knowledge and positivity greatly benefit our buyers and sellers. Over 80% of our business comes from our past clients and their referrals of family and friends. We feel this is the highest form of praise and always strive to ensure that our friends and clients have the best real estate experience possible.

Managing a 1031 exchange is stressful, especially in a challenging low inventory market and during the Holidays. Dore and Geoff were able to not only find us one, but two rental properties. They understood exactly what we needed to financially make sense, fulfill our tax requirements, and found beautiful properties in great locations. They were in regular contact throughout the entire process, detail oriented, patient and understanding of our needs. The process was seemless, professional and exceeded our expectation. In turn, Dore rented the properties for us. With multiple applicants, she was able to help us sift through the applications and find the perfect tenants. We were especially amazed when Dore brought extra light bulbs and cleaning supplies to our walk through to make sure the property was in top condition for our new tenants. This was one of the best experiences we have ever had and cannot be more thankful. I know we have realtors and friends for life.

During my lifetime I have bought and sold several homes. Using realtors when absolutely necessary and doing it on my own twice. However, the selling of my last home with Dore and Geoff was an amazing experience. They represented me, not themselves. They treated me with respect, and responded to all my questions, even the most ridiculous ones that an 87 year old can think of. They were magnificent. I highly recommend them. If not for their knowledge, experience, honesty and ability to deal with someone who thinks she knows it all, this would never have been the successful and fun experience it was. Best decision I have made in a long time.

Dore and Geoff are simply the best in the business. They know the market better than anyone, what good value looks like, what will or will not work for their clients, how to negotiate the best possible deal, and how to set their clients up for longterm success. I have been so fortunate to work with them to purchase two fantastic homes - and couldn't have made it happen without both of their expertise, skill, and genuine friendship. Already can't wait for the next adventure to come with the wonderful Baker Team. :)

After living in our Thousand Oaks home for 42 years my wife and I felt it was time to consider selling our beautiful home. I began the process one Spring weekend when I stopped by a neighbors “Open House” to determine the selling prices in our neighborhood. I was immediately met by Dore from Aviara Real Estate, and I explained why I was there. She was very understanding and graciously answered my questions. About a week later Dore stopped by with a crate full of items that every seller needs when they sell their home: cleaning supplies, packing foam, tape, plastic wrap, and a brochure full of helpful hints for owners preparing to sell their home.
In a matter of days, we called Dore and made an in-home appointment. Upon arrive she did a walk-through and assured us that our home would sell quickly. She showed us comparisons of recent real estate listings/sales in our area, graciously answered our many questions, and detailed the numerous preparation steps required in listing, showing, and selling our home.
Several days after she meticulously helped us to settle on an asking price, she brought in an associate to help us “declutter” and “stage” our home in preparations for “open house” and for professional pictures to be used in brochures and the realtor multiple listings. We had many neighbors tell us how the pictures made our home look so beautiful and inviting. Once Dore listed our home in the multiple listing, she quickly accessed market conditions. In doing so she was able to limit the number of days our home was open to neighbors, buyers and realtors, and established a deadline to receive all offers.
After accepting one of many offers, Dore opened escrow and then introduced us to Geoff, her business partner who meticulously explained the numerous steps that we needed to complete before the sale and escrow could be finalized. What seemed at first to be an overwhelming process, Geoff was able to walk us through it step by step. He not only kept us abreast of the many city and county provisions that we had to fulfill but provided valuable input along the way.
Dore and Geoff were a delight to work with and we definitely recommend handling the sale of your home.

Dore & Geoff are the perfect blend of professionalism and kindness. They both have an in-depth knowledge of Real Estate law, and are great at communicating the law in such a way for the average person to understand. They are the type of people you would choose as friends. It is refreshing and rare in the world of business to find people with both attributes. From the time we signed the contract to the time escrow closed, everything went seamless. Dore & Geoff are fantastic at communication, while keeping me informed at each step of the way, and answering my emails and texts with haste.

They have a lifelong client in me!

Geoff and Dore have been our ‘go to’ sources for real estate advice and support since the purchase of our first home in the Conejo Valley twenty four years ago. Since that time, we have bought and sold three homes through them, and each time have appreciated their responsiveness to our requests to see properties or inquire as to valuation, and their professionalism in dealing with other agents and buyers/sellers. Geoff and Dore are knowledgeable about the area and market trends, and have given us sound counsel as we have contemplated purchasing/selling decisions. We have and continue to gladly recommended them to anyone in need of reliable and trustworthy real estate agents.

Dore and Geoff did a great job selling our house. They gave us excellent advice and support from the get go and exceeded all expectations! They are very generous people and we loved the extras they provided. No other realtors we have worked with were as good as they are.
We highly recommend them.

Dore & Geoff are absolutely THE BEST realtors we've ever had the pleasure of working with us in the sale of our home. Dore mapped out a timeline of what should be done, when and it gave us enough time to get everything done and ready to put the house on the market at the time we chose. Don't hesitate to call Dore & Geoff!!

Since 1995, Geoff and Dore Baker have assisted my husband and I as home buyers once, and as home sellers twice. We can highly recommend them to others.
They are the most professional and reliable Real Estate agents that one could ever hope to do business with.
We found ourselves in the position of having to sell the family home after the recent passing of a parent. Not only did that transaction go very smooth,
but they greatly diminished our stress and anxiety at this life changing time.
We could not have done it without Geoff and Dore helping us with their expertise.
Thank You Geoff and Dore!

For making one of the biggest, most stressful decision of your life, they made it so easy. Dore and Geoff were fantastic! Not just at facilitating the transaction, but communicating every detail along the way. We purchased in a very different and difficult market. They were compassionate and honest every step of the way. I highly recommend their services!

We always wanted to get expert advice and help from Dore and Geoff regarding real estate. So when our time came to sell our home we reached out to Dore to help. Dore and Geoff are so professional and very communicative and kept us informed throughout the entire process. Dore helped to price right, stage and put the home into the market. Their extensive client base were notified immediately through social media and emails, so we had good turnout during the showings. Geoff walked us through all the hassles of paperwork and we felt really it was a smooth process. With their professional and very friendly approach to all matters, we felt very happy throughout the whole journey of selling our home. We highly recommend Dore and Geoff for selling/ buying a home.

Dore and Geoff were a fantastic duo! Dore listened to our wishlist, was honest, and always available. She was thoughtful and considerate of our circumstances and always extremely responsive. Geoff was great to work with through escrow and the closing process. He walked us through the process and was there to help with all inspections, closing, etc. Truly appreciate both of them and could not have had a better experience.

Dore and Geoff are a great team for buyers! I came in from out-of-state and relied on Dore to guide me to the best properties. She knew the areas well, organized viewings expertly, and provided excellent guidance and advise as we toured multiple subdivisions in multiple towns. She offered solid advise at offer time and we won out even though we weren't the highest bidder. Geoff provides great post-offer support and guides you through all of the numerous follow-up steps to make sure the final arrangements and closing process meets all expectations and clears all the hurdles. A great real estate team! You're in good hands with Aviara!

We met Dore years ago when she helped our neighbor rent her home. Impressed by her knowledge and professional work ethic we knew where to turn when it was time to sell our home.

Dore works the front part of the deal. She helps you ready the house for market. Her reasonable affordable suggestions to update our home translated into serious dollars. She is positive, professional and extremely knowledgeable.

Both Dore and Geoff take some of the pain and headache inherent in selling a house away by being there to guide and support you through the process.

Geoff handles the back end of the sale and ensure that escrow proceeds smoothly. He is onsite for all inspections and a great communicator.

We are so grateful to both of the Bakers. They were always there to get us the best deal, to support all our needs and answer all our questions. They are the very BEST!

Dore and Geoff are simply amazing Realtors. We have been contemplating leaving California for last 3 years. Dore helped us understand from soup to nuts how the entire listing to closing process would work. Stayed in touch with us every step of the way and...managed the process professionally. Dore and Geoff have excellent personalities which helped us through what would seem to be a stressful process for us. House was shown over the weekend and received multiple offers. Dore helped us understand what to look for in the offers. House sold day after showings.
We are starting a new chapter in our life moving to Tennessee. Much gratitude for their expertise and friendship. Many thanks to Y'All.

During the past year we worked with Dore and Geoff Baker to assist us in purchasing a Condo and selling our existing residence.. Over a period of many months during the height of the pandemic they patiently showed us many Condos until we found the one we purchased. After the purchase we put our residence on the market. It sold on the very first day for more than the listing price. Needless to say we appreciated Dore and Geoff's professionalism, market savvy and above all else their never ending consideration. Without reservations we highly recommend them for your real estate needs.

Dore and Geoff are simply the best! Longtime family friends - after Geoff sold my parents their home nearly 30 years ago - they recently helped me buy my very first home and I couldn’t have been happier with their high level of service, expertise, and good humor that made this experience as smooth and comfortable as possible. Dore spent weeks helping me scour the LA area for the best fit and value out there - and negotiated one heck of a deal for our new home! Geoff managed a tough closing process with precision and persistence like only a real estate veteran of his caliber could. Very much looking forward to working with them again in the future and already recommending them to all friends and family members who are in the market for a new home or are planning to sell down the road. Thank you Baker team!

We have worked with Geoff and Dore many, many times aver the past 20 years. Their skill and expertise during our most recent home selling and buying experience has never been more appreciated! To say that it is a "sellers market" right now would be an understatement!! Purchasing a home right now is really tricky, Geoff and Dore's experience and amazing reputation helped us to secure a home in a highly competitive market. It is a pleasure to work with them and we are happy to say that we would highly recommend their services, they are the best!!!
