My name is Herb Wendland & my wife Krista & I just sold our home of 26 years through Shaw & Baker Realtors Royal Lepage Sterling Realty . Usually we don't write reviews but in this case felt compelled. We are very impressed! Professional is the first word that comes to mind. We contacted Carole through their website a year before for a market evaluation. We had heard of their great reputation from other neighbours. From that moment, even before the listing was signed, these experienced professionals went to work. We put ourselves in their capable hands, took their advice, & did what they said. The result for us was the best possible outcome! With Carole, Louisa, & Meghan, you really get three realtors for the price of one. They are honest, hard working, have unsurpassed product knowledge, & are worth every penny! Herb & Krista Wendland
Shaw and Baker Realtors are an amazing team. Their dedication and professionalism exceeded our expectations. Louisa was always available when we needed her. She drove to the ends of the earth looking for our forever home! We would definitely recommend their services.

Shaw & Baker Realtors were amazing to work with. From the beginning we were told "When you find the right place, you'll know." And sure enough they worked with us to find our perfect home. We had a great experience on both the buying and selling side, as we sold our home after just one weekend of open houses! We are sure it was due to the fantastic job they did staging our townhouse. Such a wonderful group of ladies, I would recommend them to anyone!

In spring of 2017, my elderly relatives decided to sell their West Coquitlam home and downsize. After interviewing several realtors, we chose to list with Louisa Baker from Royal Lepage Sterling Realty because she impressed us with her market knowledge and her sincere, honest, comfortable nature.
Throughout the whole process, we found her to be patient, diligent and thorough. My relatives home sold for above market value in less than 2 weeks after 2 open houses. We were so impressed with her thorough and professional approach, that we have no hesitation recommending Louisa to friends and family.
"We are very happy to have chosen Louisa Baker as our real estate agent. Louisa is very quick to communicate and offerimpartial and well researched advice on a prospective home. Her friendly and easy going nature made the buying and sellingexperience an easy one. Her attention to detail and outstanding marketing skills are second to none and we could not be happier with the results.We would highly recommend Louisa to anyone who is looking to buy and sell a property."Dave and Marlena Bailey
"We bought and sold with Louisa and Carole in a seller's market. We were thrilled to have such a great team to work with as each brought unique qualities. Louisa has endless patience and helped bridge the gap between a hot market and our desire to think things through, while Carole’s experience in timing and price points was valuable and set us at ease.""In selling, we knew that houses were moving quickly, and our goals were top dollar, and minimal disruption to our busy household. Carole and Louisa swooped in with their extensive staging gear - even a carpet cleaner! – photographer, and we were ready to go! They helped us know what would and would not be helpful to change, and kept us sane through the process. They solved problems instead of just bringing them to our attention. We trusted them and we sold quickly, for far more than we thought we could get.""Thank you, Louisa and Carole, for all the extra efforts you put into our purchase and sale. We noticed."
-Simon Grace & Tess Trethewey,
Being long time residents of Glenayre, we'd seen Carole Shaw's name on sold signs for many years and we knew that when we wanted to sell our home, there was only one choice. Carole's reputation as a very effective real estate agent is well earned. She advised us on giving our house curb appeal, staged our home, had professional photos done for the listing and walked us through every step of the selling process including setting the right price ! We were very pleased that our home sold quickly and know that Carole's professional approach was the major factor in making this happen. Carole also acted as our agent in purchasing a new home. We appreciated her guidance in formulating an offer and during the negotiation process. Her services continued right through to accompanying us during the home inspection and on possession day. We are happy to recommend Carole's services as a realtor. "

"I would highly recommend Carole and Louisa to anyone looking to buy or sell. The value-added service they provided was so helpful during a stressful time, and it really made the difference for us on the price we achieved in selling our home. First class!"
"Very professional, caring and extremely knowledgeable of the Real Estate Market, Louisa and Carole are passionate about what they do. We were able to buy our house at a great price thanks to the great business efforts of Louisa and Carole. Hopefully another Real Estate purchase will be in our future!"
