After over a year of contemplating a move out of CA we finally decided to pull the trigger and relocate to Saddlebrooke AZ. We worked with Geoff and Dore to prepare out house for sale and had it looking good. Even before it was placed on the market Dore had lined up prospective buyers and when the house was listed it sold in one day with multiple offers above the listing price. That was the easy part. Then the virus hit and everything was turned upside down. We didn't know if we would be allowed to leave the state or if the buyer would follow through with the purchase. It was a very tough 30 days but Geoff and Dore, who themselves were quarantined, were instrumental in pulling us through the ordeal and pulling off the sale on time which allowed us to follow through with the move. They did an excellent job and made us appreciate what a difference a good Realtor can make.

With Dore and Geoff as representatives, we sold our house on our own schedule at the price we'd hoped for in the middle of a great pandemic. A professional relay team of real estate, the Bakers specialize in distinct phases of a sale. Dore markets homes with an understanding that each seller's case is unique. She and an assistant saw potential in our home that we had not. Not only did it show well after their short list of suggested upgrades, but we enjoyed living in it anew. Geoff is a calming presence throughout the half of the process that runs from acceptance of an offer through the closing day. Because he's seen every kind of complication arise in a sale, he can offer sensible and credible advice. Under the circumstances in which we found ourselves in early 2020, we doubt we'd have sold our home successfully represented by anyone else.

We are lucky to have Dore and Geoff as our real estate agents. They are very knowledgeable and client sensitive rather focusing on just finishing business. They think through everything client perspective and don't exert pressure on client. No limit to their honesty and business ethics.

Dore definitely came to my rescue when I reached out to her about some changes in my life. She got a lender on the phone and we started working on a plan to get me and my younger daughter out of a situation that was causing us some grief. The process took a lot longer than we expected, by no fault of Dore, but once we had all of our funding in place, we found our perfect home. Both Dore and Geoff made everything so easy and they are both such a pleasure to work with. My daughter and I definitely found our dream home and couldn't have done it without all of their hard work.

I’ve worked with Geoff & Dore on two occasions, and if I still lived in the area I would not hesitate to work with them again. The first time I met Dore (she was referred to me by a friend) I had just moved to Westlake Village on my own following the death of my husband. We instantly hit it off and she soon found the perfect house for me! It had great bones and I was able to do some updating before moving in. The house buying process with Dore and Geoff’s teamwork, experience, and professionalism (Geoff kept me on task with the necessary paperwork) was literally painless. They were so supportive and kept in touch after I bought the house, so when I got a job in Northern California a little over a year later and had to move up there quickly- I asked Dore and Geoff again for help. My townhouse sold at a profit in three weeks. Amazing!

I was fortunate enough to purchase my home with the assistance of Dore and Geoff. I put them through the wringer. We searched for many many months because I was very particular about my purchase. I was determined to find the home that was right for me. They shared their expertise with me as we visited property after property, pointing out minor flaws and steering me clear of major flaws. Also, they advised me about features that would enhance or detract from my property if or when I might sell at a future date. Together we found my home where I continue to live happily to this day. I have complete confidence in Dore and Geoff. I trust them and recommend them to you.

Buying a house was one of the hardest things we've ever done, and we couldn't have done it without Geoff and Dore. They were both wonderful, kind, and supportive. I would recommend them to anyone without reservation. They even donate some of their earnings to charity, which is the cherry on the sundae of wonderful things they do.

Dore walked us through the the whole process from start to finish at our first appointment. She made sure we understood what was going to happen, and how it would be. She helped us narrow our criteria to make sure we found a good house as well. When we found a house we liked online, Dore made herself available right away, and helped us go through and evaluate it. She also stayed with us late to help write the bid right away.

Then Geoff literally held our hand the whole way through buying. He would send emails explaining next steps. He would call us daily with updates about what we had to do, or what we were waiting on. He also helped us go over all the documents, explaining what they were and what they meant.

Even after the purchase, they've helped us with sourcing repairs and moving to make sure that we had a smooth transition to our new house. I hope to stay in touch with them because they are such wonderful people.

About this time last year, we were considering selling our Thousand Oaks home of twenty years. Geoff and Dore were selling a home right down the street, so I decided to visit their open house. They were friendly and informative about the current state of the housing market. Soon thereafter, we met with them and decided to list our home. Their marketing plan was amazing right from the get go. They helped us prepare our home for sale and also staged it. Then they had it photographed for stunning flyers. We were amazed at how savvy Dore is about social media, in fact it may have been her Facebook video post during the Brokers Open that tipped off the mom of our eventual buyers. Needless to say, our house sold on the 5th day with a full-price offer. WELL DONE, Geoff and Dore!! After we accepted the offer, Geoff shepherded the process to completion, assuaging the concerns of both sides. We hope the new owners love our home as much as we did for so many years. We whole heartedly recommend Geoff and Dore. They are simply the BEST!

Geoff and Dore were very knowledgeable and professional from the get-go.
They helped us on pricing my fathers home and helping to decide what changes or improvements should or needn't be done before listing. They handled all of the offers and dealings with the buyers' agent promptly and correctly. I appreciate all the time they put in to helping the sale go so smoothly and quickly. They are both very personable and honest and I would recommend them to anyone!!

Dore and Geoff are a wonderful team of experts who have helped us find and purchase a home that we have been waiting for. From beginning to end, they were great listeners and provided excellent advice. They made the process easy to follow, and we felt like we were in good hands throughout everything.

Dore and Geoff were amazing! They know their business very well and are very good at what they do. We were always informed and up to date on everything that was happening. I felt like they were ahead of the curve from the time we started looking for a home until we closed escrow. I highly recommend them!

Dore and Geoff have helped me buy and sell a property. Being on both sides of the transaction (buyer and seller), I can wholeheartedly recommend them. They are professional, personable, reliable, and overall wonderful people. I not only had the pleasure and privilege of working with them as my realtors, but I also gained two lifelong friends. Thank you, Dore and Geoff, for helping me every step of the way! You will forever have my support, my loyalty, and my friendship.

Dore is he epitome of the real estate person one would hope for because:
1. she is friendly without being nosy
2. she listened and showed properties that approximated what I wanted
3. she previewed the properties so that she found them with ease in her very up-to-date and comfortable car
4. she prepared printouts and could answer my questions
5. years went by in the search, interrupted by my spinal fusion operation, but she did not push or bother me
6. she did not hesitate to tell me if there were something averse with the
property.
7. when I decided on the home I now live in, she made the paperwork fairly understandable. So much of it is protective for others and unnecessarily loaded with "legalese" terms.

Dore is so good that it works to Geoff's disfavor. Who could come up to her competence and style?

Nonetheless, Geoff handled the escrow details with great dispatch and competence, keeping me well-informed and cuing me in on what I needed to do.

They are a remarkably personable and knowledgable team. I was fortunate to come across Dore and Geoff Baker, who made the process of buying a home
less stressful.

I have never sold a house before and Dore walked me painlessly through the process. I had been n my home 53 years, so moving was difficult. Dore and Geoff were always available and went above what was expected. Dore even picked my cats up from the vet and was always mindful they were in the house!! If I had to do this again, they would definitely be the only realtors I would call.

Dore and Geoff are an amazing full service professional team. From the very beginning of our working with Dore until the close of Escrow with Geoff, they walked alongside us every step of the way. As with any major transaction this major, there can be surprises from any number of the involved parties. Geoff and Dore were able to navigate every detail. The depth of experience and care was abundantly apparent. Geoff was smoothing out the wrinkles around confusing escrow processes. And Dore must have driven us to 50 properties to find our perfect match. Simply wonderful. Her sunny smile was as bright driving to house 50 as it was at the first address. The cherry on top? Dore brought lunch for our entire crew on move-in day. Wow! For top drawer service with endless support, this Aviara Realty power couple is as good as it gets!

It’s is 10 years since I met Dore and Geoff. At that time I was interviewing realtors to sell a house for me. Once I met them there was no need to look further, all others fall by the way compared to them. Since that time they have helped us sell three and buy two homes. Also they have advised on rentals. Property transactions can be so stressful, particularly when they involve your home and all the emotions that entails. Dore and Geoff understand this and do everything to help smooth the way. From the very beginning they share their extensive knowledge of the local housing market and current conditions regarding pricing and activity. If selling they will advise on how to show your home so it is displayed at its best. They are expert negotiators and have a deep understanding of all the legal requirements as it goes through escrow. All this is done competently, professionally and with a friendly attitude. I can not recommend them highly enough no matter what your real estate needs.

Dore and Geoff were great to work with. They are very knowledgeable about the area and that made our search for a home very easy. We recently moved to Ventura County from Monterey County and they guided us into the neighborhoods that beat fit our family needs. It was a pleasure to work with Dore and Geoff. I would highly recommend there services to anyone who’s in the market for a home.

Dore and Geoff Baker are awesome realtors. They make the perfect team. Dore shows the houses and Geoff takes care of all the paperwork. As a first time buyer and seller, I had a million questions. Both Geoff and Dore answered them in detail. They made sure I was crystal clear on how each phase of the buying and selling process took place. They were extremely responsive and made me feel like I was their only client. Dore never pushed the sale of any home, she actually pointed out all the flaws and would discourage me from making a potentially bad decision. She continually told me she wanted to make sure we got the home we really wanted. By the time we sold our home and purchased our new one, Dore and Geoff felt like family. I will definitely use Dore and Geoff again in the future and highly recommend them to anybody looking to buy or sell in the Conjeo Valley Area.

Sold for ABOVE asking. Twenty-day escrow. All cash. Not to mention, Dore and Geoff had our house listed in less than two weeks to maximize the Spring selling season. From both a personal and professional perspective, it was an absolute pleasure working with the Bakers. They are both extremely responsive and absolute experts in their field. I can't imagine working with anyone else in the buying or selling of any and all of our future homes. Thank you Geoff and Dore!

We would like to thank you Dore & Geoff, for your wonderful, friendly and professional service in helping our condo purchase at Ocean Breeze Drive, Port Hueneme. Dore knows the area very well from Thousand Oaks, Camarillo, Oxnard to Ventura. She’s very calm, detailed and patient, hard working and not pushy; getting answers to various questions for us. Geoff is very knowledgeable and helpful once our application was in escrow. He followed up with inspection, loan application, HOA until we finally got the key. Dore and Geoff made the entire purchase process much easier than attempting on our own! For this, we would recommend Dore & Geoff Baker to anyone who is purchasing or selling a home in the area.
