Testimonial - Bought a Home on Blue Lake

It was my pleasure to work with Ivie Baker and Kehoe Realty.  Excellent website photos and property descriptions gave me an accurate feel of the property from home, inspiring my first visit to the property which was exactly as described.  The ability to execute purchase documents electronically saved numerous miles of travel for me and significant time for my mortgage company, resulting in a quick and clean mortgage execution.  An effective team was formed to make things happen quickly and create a positive experience for all involved because of the friendly nature of the interactions between Ivie, my family, the property owners, the mortgage company, and the title company.  I highly recommend Ivie Baker and Kehoe Realty.

Thanks again,

Testimonial - Bought Cottage on Blue Lake

We were fortunate to have Ivie as our realtor when looking for a vacation home. She was very accomodating to our schedule. Living two hours away, we could only look at properties on the week-end. Ivie always made time for us. Whenever we had a question, she was quick to reply with a phone call or e-mail. We were very happy with our experience and would highly recommend Ivie Baker.

Testimonial - Bought a Waterfront Home on Secord Lake

Ivie was fantastic. We had been to Secord Lake in July visiting friends. We absolutely fell in love with the area and decided to move full steam ahead with our own cottage search. Ivie had helped our friends find their place and she came highly recommended. Because of our long commute, she took care of a lot of extras that we couldn't be present for and really went above and beyond. We met with her on a Sunday in September and a few short weeks later, we were cottage owners. We look forward to many years of cottage living! Ivie really helped make this dream a reality!

Testimonial - Bought a Camping Lot in Sugar Springs

We contacted Ivie Baker during the summer of 2011. My husband and I were interested in some vacant lots in Sugar Springs and Ivie was very helpful and showed us quite a few lots. We went up there a couple of times and met with her. She is very nice and knowledgeable about Sugar Springs, very, very helpful. When we finally found the Lot that was for us, she was with us every step of the way. And was also there with us at closing.

Testimonial - Bought a Cottage on Blue Lake

This note is to acknowledge and Thank Ivie Baker for providing professional and expert assistance in our search for the perfect summer home.

We started working with Ivie in 2007 , when we first researched lake front properties in the Gladwin area, she was always very pleasant and extremely helpful. She was always ready to help whenever we called and was availble to meet us on our schedule. We came from the Livonia area which is about 2 -3 hrs away and would adjust her day to help us find the perfect place. She emailed us often and was aware of our desires and limitations, sending us many listings as they came available. We often called her at the last minute and she would always fit us in her busy schedule and made us feel very special and important.

Ivie is very professional, and also familiar with the area which is very helpful for buyers new to the area. We would not have found our very special summer home on Blue Lake in August 2011 had it not been for her patience, dedication and expert real estate knowledege and experience.
We would recommend Ivie to any person searching for their special home.
Thank You Ivie Baker!!

Testimonial - Sold a Cottage

My wife and I recently listed and sold our cottage on Blue Lake through Ivie Baker and Kehoe Realty. During the time that we were listed with Ivie, I had several contacts with her for various reasons. Each time she was pleasant and always did everything she could to accomodate my needs. Her advice on pricing was accurate and honest. Ivie directed me to reputable contractors in the area for updates that were needed to make our place sell. She even called them for me to facilitate speedy service. Ivie kept me current on what was happening as we went through the process of selling. There were issues with lot line discrepencies and Ivie stayed on top of that for me. I never had to call or contact anybody to remedy the problem. All of our "paperwork" was conveniently via email. Closing went off pleasantly and without a hitch. Overall I feel that Ivie provided high quality service and always did so with a smile.

We chose the Baker team to sell our vacant land because our cottage neighbors highly recommended them to us. From the very beginning to the end the Baker team kept us informed with updates, showings, and offers.

For the last two years my husband and I had been looking for the perfect spot up north. We connected with Ivie via her website and she stayed with us over the years sending pictures of possible listings and answering our questions as they arose with a personal client list she compiled for us. There was never any pressure, all our questions were answered truthfully and any concerns addressed. We found our "special spot" this past July and from beginning to end it was a very well organized sale, purchase and closing. We would highly recommend Ivie for your real estate needs. She not only helped us get the cottage of our dreams, but became a friend in the process!

Testimonial - Bought a Cottage

Ivie is absolutely the best realtor I have ever dealt with! Ivie and I started looking at cottages in the Gladwin area in the Spring 2010. Ivie is amazingly knowledgable of properties in Gladwin and Clare counties ... not only her listings but likewise those on the multilist. Ivie dedicated herself to finding the right summer home for us and for taking the time to show us all properties that we felt were of interest. Unfortunately, we did not find the right summer home in Gladwin but Ivie came to the rescue and referred us to a realtor in Oscoda who did find us the perfect summer home. Thanks to Ivie we now have a great cottage! Ivie is amazing! She is knowledgable, honest, very professional and extremely friendly. We are lucky enough to call Ivie a friend .... not just a realtor. I highly recommend Ivie to anyone buying or selling property. No one else even compares. She is GREAT!

We would highly recommend Ivie as a real estate agent to help you buy or sale your house. We bought a house from Ivie and then listed our cottage and she had it sold within 2 months. She always answered any questions we had in a very timely manner.

She does a wonderful job with her virtual tour and also lists your property on many different web sites. She also e-mails new properties when they become available,(because of this we were able to see our house we bought while in Arizona for the winter.)

She will also give you good advice in regards to offers and counter offers.

Testimonial - Bought a Lot in Blue Lake

The first thing that drew us to Ivie was her website. We had been looking for some waterfront property for over a year and had dealt with a lot of realtors and there are not many out there that are as professional as Ivie. Her thoroughness and pictures of each property are very helpful in deciding whether we wanted to look at one or not and when we did, she was very quick in answering our questions and setting up a viewing if we wanted. We ended up buying on Blue Lake and her professionalism was there throughout the process. If we are ever in need of property again, we will ask Ivie for her help.

We have enjoyed working with "The Baker Team" who have gone the extra mile and then some.

After purchasing our home (we were out of town for the winter) Ivie and Jim continued to help us with little things like checking the furnace, our mail and answering questions to name a few. I would recommend "The Baker Team" for all your realestate needs. We have enjoyed working with them.

She returned calls promptly and was very helpful to my wife and I, even though she was technically working on behalf of the sellers. She helped facilitate most of the deal by email and phone, which helped us a lot because we do not live in the area where the property was located. She was very professional and we will not hesitate to have her act as our agent in the future should be decide to sell our cottage property.

First let me say that I knew about one in the area when I contacted Ivie regarding an ad I found on the net. I called. She was very personable on the phone. After setting an appointment she took time to listen to what we wanted. Then she put together an afternoon (same day) to show us properties. We found the ideal acreage. After that it was smooth sailing. We are still in contact with each other. It was a painless experience and we are very happy with all she has done and the property.

Testimonial - Bought a Waterfront Cottage on Little Long Lake

My husband and I started looking at cottages in 2008, not quite sure what we had in mind at first. We made arrangements in advance so that Ivie could take us around to see a few properties. We had found Ivie's helpful website, but we weren't sure what to expect in person. We felt at ease right away. She was very accommodating and helpful. She knew that we were just formulating ideas as to what exactly we were looking for. We didn’t feel rushed at all. She is certainly not a high-pressure saleswoman! Even though there were a few bumps in the road along the way to our perfect place, we felt confident about maintaining our trust in Ivie.

We finally found what we were looking for, and Ivie coordinated all aspects of our purchase with such ease. Fall was becoming more like winter, and we wanted to have the deal sealed before the snow began to accumulate, making travel upnorth less likely. It was no accident that everything finally fell into place. Ivie is a master of communication, and when our lender became hard to reach, she was relentless in contacting him and getting everyone on the same page.

We are very happy with our cottage purchase and the handling of all aspects of it! We would definitely recommend Ivie to any other cottage seekers. Ivie Baker is a breath of fresh air. She is professional and friendly, cool-headed and warm, and all of this at the same time! She made us feel that we not only gained a cottage, but gained a friend as well.

Searching for waterfront properties this past Fourth of July weekend, over 150 miles from our home, was quite an experience. We searched over 80 homes. We finally found one that we were interested in and made a call to Kehoe Realty. Not expecting to get any service that holiday weekend; Ivie Baker at Kehoe Realty not only answered our call but offered to show us the home that same day. It turned out to be the one. Ivie walked us through the process, answered all my many calls and emails promptly,she always went the extra mile for us. Even after the closing she has continued to assist me. I consider her a wonderful agent and a lifelong friend.

Testimonial - Bought a Waterfront Home on Secord

In July, we decided to start looking in the Gladwin area for a waterfront 2nd home. We were thinking we would buy something in the next couple of years. We drove up north and looked at a few houses, then made contact with a couple of real estate agents. Ivie Baker was instrumental in our decision to quickly purchase a home on Secord Lake. From the beginning, she was friendly, helpful, and upbeat. She also never used any high-pressure techniques I've seen in that business. After looking at only 12 homes, we purchased a home on Pineland Point that we absolutely love. Thanks again to Ivie Baker at Kehoe Realty!

Testimonial - Bought a Waterfront Home

I was looking for a home and seen this one listing by Ivie. I called her to see this home. Instead of saying she couldnt make it today set an appointment, or anything like that she dropped everything and was at this one home in 10 min.

From that point on Ivie stayed with me and helped me find the house of my dreams. She had so much patients. I thought for sure she would send me to another person and she wouldnt have time for me. She showed me alot of homes.

Then I believed she wanted me to have the home I wanted. She really showed me that she was truely for the client and not the money.

If you have a chance or need an outstanding person that will care for your needs and listen to what you want then you really need to give her a call.

After many homes and alot of her time Ivie called and said that she has this home that was it, and she was right. I put a contract on it and now I am a proud owner of this beautiful home.

Thank you again Ivie for all your help and for paying attention to my needs for a home.. I will refer people to you and I will use you again in the future..God Bless ... Terry JaJo

Testimonial - Bought Vacant Hunting Acreage

Ivie Baker is at the forefront of dedication to her clients. She makes it her mission to find the answers to all questions posed to her. She keeps her clients well informed, by sending out regular email correspondence, listings, with maps and photos, sales information of similar homes and properties, and so on. If asked a question she cannot answer immediately, Ivie looks under every rock for it. She is not afraid of a challenge. She is generous with her time, and she will fit her schedule around the client's schedule. She returns calls and emails promptly. 

We recently purchased 32 acres of land with a hunter's cabin and matching outbuilding. Without us even asking her to, she took out her digital camera, and took many photos of the cabin, and surrounding land. She scheduled our closing without a hitch, and it took little time. 

Ivie "under-promises, and over-delivers" which is the mark of a good Realtor. In this time of declining markets, volatile sales reductions, over-inventory, Ivie remains true to her trade, true to her clients, true to her Agency. She is a positive force which reinforces the faith in these troubling times. She sets a high standard for the Real Estate Industry, and for all future real estate needs, we will return to Kehoe Realty and Ivie Baker. She exemplifies "customer service and satisfaction".

We stumbled upon Ivie’s website while dreaming about owning a place Up North. Her customized weekly mailouts helped us narrow down exactly what we were looking for. While Ivie’s website was a wonderful place for us to narrow down our real estate needs, I cannot express the depth of knowledge and personalized service that she provided. Within minutes of emailing her we had an appointment schedule to tour homes in Gladwin/Sugar Springs. We cannot stress the importance of working with a real estate agent that knows the local area. She gave us the best service possible saving us time and money. Without hesitation we would recommend Ivie to handle all your real estate needs. Thank you Ivie for making our dream home a reality!

Testimonial - Bought a Lot in Sugar Springs

I was on the internet late one Saturday night when I found this awesome deal on a beautiful piece of land. Ivie Baker was the realtor listed and I shot off an email with a thousand questions expecting not to hear a thing back before Monday morning. Imagine my surprise when bright and early Sunday morning I had an email answer to all my questions and a cell phone number to reach her if there was any thing else I needed to know. My husband and I made the two hour trip to see the lot that Sunday. We called Ivie with a few more questions from the lot and received a call back within an hour, while she was at a Tiger baseball game. We drove back up Monday afternoon and signed the papers on the lot. Buying our dream lot was the easiest experience we have ever had and it is all because of Ivie Baker.

Testimonial - Sold Lakeside Condo in Sugar Springs

When we decided to sell our home in 2006, our original thought was to list it with the agency which the builder had used for new sales. We were familiar with the people and the operation of that agency so there was a comfort level. There was very little activity during the two years of that listing, but because it was a multi-listing, Ivie Baker's card was on our counter for having shown our place more frequently than any other agent. Finally, in June 2008, even though the economy was still in the tank and home sales in a downspin, something had to change if we hoped to sell. We contacted Ivie and met with her on June 13, 2008.

Her upbeat personality and positive attitude really impressed us at our first meeting. She explained her use of the internet to advertise her listings and although we really didn't understand the whole process, we bought into the concept. She listed our place on June 18 and had her first prospective buyer come through on July 5 who had seen our place on her "Virtual Tour" which really impressed them. They made an offer which we accepted on July 6 and signed the papers on July 7. The closing date was Aug l and the entire sale through Ivie's efforts went so smooth, we were on our way to Florida the next week.

Without any reservation or hesitation,we would highly recommend Ivie Baker for her professionalism as a real estate agent, her work ethic to get the job done. Let's be honest success is the highest form of flattery and the most accurate gauge to measure satisfaction. We couldn't be more satisfied with her sucess. Then on a personal note you won't find a more personable, positive agent to work with and we were fortunate enough to meet some of her family who reflect her personality. We feel fortunate to have had Ivie Baker come into our lives, not just because of the sale of our home, but also to have her as a friend.

Testimonial - Sold 40 acres with Cedar River - Clare County

Ivie sold my 40 acres of hunting land for me. She did an excellent job of advertising it for me and had numerous showings in a bad economy. I would definitely use her on my next purchase or sales. Thanks again.

Testimonial - Bought Waterfront Home - Wixom Lake

Ivie, you were definitely the right realtor for us. Your willingness to help us out in advance of our visit, professional advice, quick response times, and the fact that you are so well connected in this digital age really made it possible for us to find a place and close on it so quickly. You've probably spoiled us for working with any other realtors in the future!

Testimonial - Sold Waterfront Cottage - Lake Four

Recently we decided to list our lake front cottage. We didn't have much hope of selling because of the sagging economy, and we weren't 100% sure that we wanted to sell, but we thought we would give it a try. We met with Ivie on a Saturday to show her the property. Ivie took pictures inside and out so that she could post it on the net and create a virtual tour. We were shocked at how quickly Ivie had it done and how cute our cottage looked for the tour! Then, just ten days later, we had a full price offer! It seemed miraculous, but really it was all Ivie's work. Throughout our quick transaction, Ivie was professional, friendly and helpful. We sold without any trouble. We know where we'll go if we decide to buy again! Thanks Ivie for doing such a fantastic job!

Testimonial - Bought Waterfront Cottage - Lake Four

We recently purchased a cottage from Ivie Baker at Kehoe Realty. It was a pleasure working with her. Over the last few months we had looked at MANY cabins/cottages in Gladwin, Clare, and Ogemaw Counties. When we happened to come across one of Ivie's listing and got connected with her. She got us hooked up with an automatic e-mail update with listing of what we wanted and in our price range. She always got right back with us if we had a question or concern. She made the Transition quick and easy. From viewing to signing everything was done within 2 weeks. Thanks Ivie!!!!

Testimonial: Sugar Springs Waterfront Home (Lake Lancer)

Ivie Baker found several homes for us to look at in our search for a house in the Gladwin area. When we decided to look in an area that wasn't in her bailiwick, she contacted another agent to help us with looking at homes. This agent was also very helpful.

She was willing to go the extra mile to help out, even showing homes in the evening, when we're sure she would've rather been with her family. She tracked down any information we needed to help us with our decisions. And Ivie was really helpful with letting us see the potential for places. We appreciated all her help, and we eventually found a place, and at a place where we really wanted to live. She knew the area intimately, and can help a client with anything they need to know. We have found her to be the best real estate agent with whom we have ever had the pleasure to work.
