Meet Emma Baker
As your Collingwood and Blue Mountains Real Estate Agent, my goal is to earn your confidence and represent you with the purchase or sale on your next home by getting to know a little more about me.
I was born and raised in West London, England and moved to Canada in November 2004 with my husband and two young children. We chose Collingwood as we felt it was a wonderful place to raise our children and we have not been disappointed at all.
I started my early career in the banking industry and went on to run the purchase ledger department of a small building company. Within two years I was recruited by Glaxo to work in their Financial Accounting Team and from there my career progressed. I was asked if I wanted to study for my accountancy qualifications and whilst working at Glaxo I completed a two year part time course and became a Chartered Management Accountant. I was heavily involved in the financial accounting process work in relation to the acquisition of the Welcome Foundation and the subsequent merger with SmithKlineBeecham and laterally became responsible for the UK Inter Company financing department for GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) PLC.
After marrying, and having 2 children, I decided that I would like to fulfill my lifelong dream and move to Canada, a country I had visited many times as a child. Once settled my husband set up a successful plumbing company and I went back to school and took the real estate courses in 2006, something in which I had always been very interested. My husband and I have become entrenched in the community through our children and while they were growing up they participated in lots of sport including hockey, skiing, swimming, soccer to name but a few.
I am tenacious, dedicated and committed to providing the best possible service to my clients, many of which I have kept in contact with and see on a regular basis. I love what I do and I love where I live!
