Richard Baker - Edge Realty
“Committed to providing service beyond a sale”
Richard is focused on maintaining the independent and boutique EDGE brand that is established and he is committed to providing service beyond a sale. Having grown up in Ohope / Whakatane, and later owning rental investments, the ties to real estate in Whakatane have always been there. The decision to return to Whakatane with a family now has been an easy one since working overseas on Super Yachts. Spending the last 15 years helping manage and run Super Yachts as Deckhand through to Captain have provided a wealth of experience in a multi-million dollar service industry that can now be transferred to helping clients in Real Estate.
Outside of real estate, spending time with my family is a priority. Living out at Thornton beach on a lifestyle block and grazing Scottish Highlands Cattle creates a great mix between the rural and the beach lifestyle for the kids to grow up on. Teaching them about farming basics, fishing and surfing down at the beach is a great way to spend my time with Finn, Cole and Caz.
I look forward to helping you as a client for your real estate needs in the Whakatane district.
