Meet Your Buyer’s Agents
Frank and Karen Baker
Hello, we are Frank & Karen Baker, a true husband & wife real estate team. We have been married since 1976 and work full time running our real estate business. Our company is dedicated to working with BUYERS and delivering the highest level of customer service. We always represent our clients with the utmost honesty and integrity. We provide the most up to date information for our clients by employing the newest technology available. Most importantly, we make the home buying and selling experience enjoyable as we help our clients find the home of their dreams.
We are both natives of New York City, Karen from Bay Ridge, Brooklyn and Frank from Staten Island. Although retirement in Sunset Beach, NC had long been a dream, it happened a little sooner than expected when Frank, a Lieutenant for the Fire Dept. of New York with 20 years service, and Karen, a critical care RN for more than 25 years, decided to semi-retire and move to Sunset Beach in 2003.
We both became licensed real estate brokers in the states of NC and SC in June 2006. We started working for a large Weichert Realtors franchise to take advantage of their extensive training program because we believe education is the key to success in any endeavor.
In April 2010 we formed our own company and Sunset Beach and Beyond Realty was born.
We have attained the knowledge and experience to ensure each transaction runs smoothly from start to finish. We have a network of reputable professional service providers with whom we work and refer should the need arise. We also have a large and active referral database so that we are able to help clients, friends and family anywhere in the country find the most highly qualified real estate agents to assist with the sale or purchase of a home. Building relationships is extremely important to us and we are proud of the fact that many of our clients come from referrals of satisfied clients.
In our spare time we enjoy golfing, biking, reading, gardening, going to the beach and spoiling our adorable doggies, Bonita & Bella. We also enjoy visiting our daughter Tamzen and her partner Emily in Pennsylvania and our son Travis, daughter in law Kristy and two grandchildren Zachary and Zoe in Massachusetts.
