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. Trust them and you will not be disappointed!

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!!!

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!
