Lori Ritchey is such an incredible asset to the Barbara Baker Team. She went above and beyond the call of duty in finding us our home. Being completely new to the area, her knowledge and expertise of the South Hills was invaluable. She made sure that by the end of our search, I knew where everything I needed or wanted could be found. She also gave us the pros and cons of each and every house we viewed so we could make the most informed decision possible-without ever pushing us into a sale. She kept us sane in what turned out to be a sticky situation with difficult sellers! The best part of our relationship with Lori was that she wasn’t interested in us buying a house, but in us finding our perfect home. Should we ever happen to outgrow our home, there is no one else I will trust to lead us in our search.

Barb is a true professional. She knows her business and was extremely thorough in creating a market analysis of our home. I was impressed with the amount of research she presented as well as the efficient system she has in place to assist her clients through the process. In addition, Prudential Preferred offers some of the most innovative marketing tools I have seen in the industry. Barb guided us to a listing price that was on target with our expectations as well as one that was realistic for our property and the neighborhood. Once we officially hired her, she wasted no time getting the details in place to market our home. Eight days later our home was under contract for a desirable price.
Selling a home can be extremely stressful and yet Barb managed to ease our concerns with her confident and calm demeanor. My husband and I have bought and sold quite a few homes in our lifetime. We both wholeheartedly agree that the experience of selling our home in Pittsburgh with Barb Baker was without a doubt the most pleasant.

I was lucky enough to be introduced to Barb Baker by a friend in 1992. She was my realtor when I moved to Pittsburgh from South Carolina and I had a very good experience. Since then, I have referred Barb to other friends who have been very pleased using her as their realtor.
When it came time to move again in 2011, my first call was to Barb. She worked with me as I purchased a new home in Washington, PA, and she also sold my home in Bethel Park in just 30 days. Barb knows all the latest techniques and has all the tools to sell your home quickly. She also has an excellent support staff.
Barb Baker is the absolute best. Her high ethical standards, honesty and attention to detail are what I value most. Having Barb in your corner makes all the difference.

Barb was a pleasure to work with and helped find us our dream home! The weeks leading up to our closing on the home were difficult, yet Barb made the stressful period much better as she was always willing to meet us at the house (even on short notice) and helped us negotiate with the seller to ensure everything was taken care of prior to closing. Barb was also cognizant of the fact that we wanted to close as soon as possible. She did everything in her power to make the closing occur quickly and seamlessly. We moved in in record time and couldn’t be happier. We appreciate all of Barb’s help and would recommend Barb’s services to anyone!

Barbara Baker is a experienced professional with an expert team who was able to provide us with a smooth real estate experience. Having used Barb’s assistance to purchase our first home 7 years ago, we knew we wanted to enlist her help again when selling our “starter” house and seeking to buy our next home. In an uncertain economy, buyers and sellers can be impatient with the state of the market, Barb’s expertise and team approach helped to keep our listing current and on the radar of potential buyers. In addition to a successful sale, Barb was able to help us properly negotiate the purchase of our new home and we couldn’t be happier with the results.

We love the new place, but really, Barb made the whole process a lot better. Buying a home can be an intimidating experience. Having her as our agent, however, I felt completely comfortable from the beginning until the day we were handed the keys! She was there for us as an agent, but it felt like we had a good friend with honest, knowledgeable advice with us—that’s what I think I valued the most. I really appreciated the knowledge and insight she provided. She was always available and accommodating, which proved very helpful during the times Matt was required to be out of town throughout the process. If the time ever comes to buy or sell again, I can trust that with Barb We will be in great hands!
Barb came highly recommended by two close friends that she had helped find homes for. We are very glad that we took their advice and contacted her. Barb made the stressful process of looking for and purchasing a new home easy. Her in-depth knowledge of the area and always being able to have her just a phone call away put our nerves at ease. We’d recommend Barb to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

We found our dream home! The catch was that we had to sell our existing home before we could purchase our dream home. We knew selling a home located on a main road with heavy traffic can be a difficult sale but Barb Baker did an excellent job marketing our home and drew the attention of potential buyers away from the busy street and onto the positive attributes and features of the property. Our home sold much quicker than we ever imagined. It was a smooth transaction from start to finish and we are happily settled into our new place.

As a first time home buyer, I was very nervous and did not know what to expect when I started the process. I had worked with a couple different realtors and they seemed to only care about the “sale”. I can honestly say that this was the complete opposite with Barb. She was very professional and made it known that she wanted to help me find the right home. I am a very picky person, and Barb stayed patient with me for the 8 or so months it took me to finally seal the deal. I am very glad that I chose to work with her, and I definitely recommend her to anyone who is in the market for real estate. If I ever am in the market again, I will be sure to utilize Barb’s services.
As a young couple, my wife and I were pretty green to the whole real estate business, and began our first home-buying venture with a good bit of wariness. Fortunately, our apprehension quickly passed when we met Barbara Baker at the very first house on our list—we just knew we had already found the right real estate agent to educate and guide us through the process. Throughout the following months of numerous house visits, Barb always demonstrated great savvy market expertise, never hesitating to answer our questions and address our concerns with forthright honesty.
When we did decide on a house, Barb and her team were exceptionally diligent and persistent (and most importantly, effective!) in representing our best interests to the sellers and lenders. It was obvious that she cared very deeply about us and our situation, both as our real estate agent and as a friend.

Barb Baker is great to work with. She is not simply a “real estate agent” but a true real estate consultant with your best investment in mind. She really does go above and beyond for her clients. Barb was not the first agent I have worked with, but is who I will go back to with future transactions. She was thorough, professional and marketing-savvy. With her advice and aggressive marketing approach, my house sold in just 10 days. I recommend Barbara Baker to anyone serious about buying or selling a home.
