Greg Baker has distinguished himself as both a consummate real estate professional and a force in the industry. With a business composed mostly of referrals, he is driven by integrity and loyalty, which leads to enduring client relationships that flourish well past closing.
Greg has a proven track record of successful transactions, thanks to his astute market insight and extensive knowledge of East End construction and investment. “East End real estate is my passion and I’m always on the beat. Complex deals don’t phase me—I enjoy sharing my insight and revealing opportunities and strategies to help clients navigate even complicated situations to successful outcomes,” says Greg.
A career in real estate was a natural segue for Greg, who previously worked in marketing, ad sales, interior design, and property development of both new construction as well as the restoration of iconic historic homes. His clients benefit from his experience and passion for the property design and development process, his nuanced understanding of the local area and its building codes, and the trusted relationships he’s forged with quality design and build trades here on the East End.
As a full-time Sag Harbor resident, Greg has a long history as both a Hamptons homeowner and luxury-rental landlord and shares that expertise with his client and customer base. Savvy negotiation skills, strong client-service principles, and a deep understanding of digital marketing help Greg successfully guide his clients through the deal-making process. Obsessed with hard data, Greg is also well-versed in the latest real estate market trends, and he weaves in this knowledge as he counsels both buyers and sellers.
“I’m honest and direct, always keeping their interests and goals in mind. I also take the time to truly listen. I believe this willingness to understand people—and their specific needs and desires—is what creates a successful connection between a broker and client,” Greg says.
When not working, Greg and his husband, Anthony, savor every moment with their two rescue dogs, Olive and Ivy. He supports the efforts of local shelters and loves to get the message out about the importance of fostering and adoption. Food insecurity is also a real issue in the East End seasonal community, and Greg helps promote local food pantries, a crucial safety net. Greg and Anthony also love cooking, entertaining, and clean eating, relying on local farm stands for seasonal inspiration when planning leisurely meals for their large family and many hungry friends.
