Brad Baker ’15 graduated with a music performance degree, but these days you will find him leading the No. 1 Realty One Group Coastal team in South Carolina. He is also a Dave Ramsey endorsed real estate provider in the Charleston market. 

Baker got his start in real estate back in 2016 with a local firm and was drawn to the real estate industry because of his father, Brian Baker, who is still an actively licensed Realtor in Charlotte and who sold real estate in Charleston for 20+ years. Baker said, “Real estate provides a fast-paced work environment with a lot of variety and the opportunity to help serve individuals and families with purchasing the largest financial asset of their lives.”   

Baker Real Estate Team was born in 2020 and has added four more agents, including Earl Fleetwood, a 2019 CSU alum, and a full-time administrative coordinator. Baker said he and his team are passionate about providing biblically sound advice and guidance to their clients. 

His wife, Gabi Baker, does the team’s photography, headshots, and client events. Gabi and Brad met at CSU in 2012 while studying.  

Baker said, “The team’s mission is to develop agents who are excited about improving their lives by providing world class service to their clients. And we strive to live by this Zig Ziglar quote: ‘You can have everything in life you want if you will just help enough people get what they want.’”
