Paul & Jodee Baker
My husband Mark and I had lived in our home for over 30 years. We went through the bitter-sweet process of deciding to move towards simplifying our lives in preparation for future retirement for several years. Paul and Jodee Baker were our choice several times in attempts to enter the real estate world. On two previous occasions, in earlier years, we actually had situations where we suddenly and unexpectedly changed our minds. Each time Jodee and Paul were SUPER understanding and always interested in only our happiness and satisfaction. Finally, this August, we made a permanent decision to move to Holland Michigan and listed again with Team Baker of Platinum Partners. Within 5 days our home had 2 offers and was officially pending. Many, many times during that pending status I am quite certain other realtors would have jumped ship...like when our sewer pipe broke and flooded the basement, or when closing was delayed for the third time. But instead Jodee and Paul were WONDERFUL! They offered their expertise in finding plumbers, lawyers, home cleaners, people to help us move basement things into our garage (think 30 + years of accumulated stuff!) and were always upbeat and professional. They attended inspections, taught us about Radon, and even dropped by the empty house before closing to ensure everything was okay. We could not be happier with our selection of Team Baker and we would strongly recommend them to any of our friends who are also thinking in terms of future retirement. So grateful to Paul and Jodee!

My first time selling my home that I lived in in 35+ years. Needless to say, I was emotional, confused and full of notions from other people. Paul sold my house in 4 days and walked me thru the selling process. He & his wife, Jodee, even found me my new place! I couldn't have asked for more... To you both, my biggest thanks in making this move possible!

Thanks to Paul’s knowledge of the real estate market we followed everything he wanted us to do to sell our home. We had multiple offers after a day on the market and were able to sell for above our asking price, which is 100% because of Paul! He truly is passionate about what he does and is phenomenal at it! Highly recommend!!

Fortunate to work with Paul and Jodee Baker and their team on the sale of my Naperville IL house. They know the market and what needs to be done to move a property. Excellent communication. Entire process effortless with plan in place from day 1. Recommend to anyone in Naperville and surrounding areas without reservation.

Paul and Jodee Baker found our new home in one day. They also sold our old home in a week. Out doing the previous Realtor that had our home on the market for 4 monthes. We were very pleased with the communication they gave us.They went above and beyond with issues we had.We give them a 5 star review.

Simply stated, Team Baker is the best out there. We had a horrible experience with another realtor and were about to give up, but we found the Bakers and decided to give them a shot. From our first meeting it was evident that Team Baker were professionals. We were given all the info we needed, prepared in an easy to understand format, so that our asking price wasn't just what we wanted to hear, but rather an educated formula that ended up being more than we were expecting. They worked with us on every single step of the process, starting with 18 showings in our first week! We had an offer with a qualified buyer within 9 days of listing. Paul helped us with every step of the sale and went so far above and beyond, it's actually too much to list in this review. Jodee listened to exactly what we wanted in our buy side and found us our dream townhome in one afternoon! After our first agent with another agency that couldn't get our house sold and had us looking at numerous properties for months, the Bakers were a breath of fresh air. I only wish we would have gone with Team Baker from the start! A million thanks to the best team out there. Do yourself a huge favor and hire Team Baker!! A huge 5 star review!!!!!!

My boyfriend and I recently bought our first single family home with Audrey as our realtor. She was very patient during the process, as we looked at many homes. We searched during a pandemic and an absolutely crazy-fast market, and she made us feel at ease as we all navigated through uncharted territory together. She was always there to answer all of our questions, day or night! I would recommend Audrey for all your real estate needs!

Kayla was absolutely wonderful to work with. She explained everything, followed up in a timely manner, and offered excellent advice in regards to selling our property. It was refreshing to work with someone that had "excellent follow-through" with whatever she promised. She was knowledgeable, and if I ever need a realtor again, Kayla is my 5 star choice! I trusted that she was our advocate every step of the way.
