About Us

The best estate agents have a thorough technical knowledge of property; the local area and conveyancing as well as being fussy perfectionists with a camera and putting as much effort into the preparation of property particulars as writing an A-grade essay. They are a hand to hold and the voice of reason when things are getting rocky and the people who should joyfully dance with you when you finally collect the key to your new house. They should, above all, care deeply about you the customer and your home.

We are blessed to have an office full of these wonderful people…

    A little bit about me...

    I was the first of my family born on the Isle of Wight but feel like an Islander through and through. After being educated in Ryde, I joined a local estate agency after my A Levels. Buying my own agency in 2005 was the best 30th birthday present ever! I’m surrounded by an amazing group of friends and colleagues who all share my passion for property and people. I live in Brighstone with my National Trust Ranger husband and my three doggy babies (you’ll meet the whippets if you pop into my office).

    • What makes me smile:

      Getting my hands in the dirt at my allotment surrounded by sprinting whippets.

    • Not my cup of tea:

      Incorrectly used apostrophes on advertising signs. Grr!

    • Favourite Island spot:

      Newtown – my sanctuary.  Especially kayaking in the creek. 

    • Guilty Pleasure:

      Ice cream at the cinema (and Channing Tatum but don’t tell anyone).

    A little bit about me...

    I was born and bred on the Island, and am a Gurnard girl. I lived away for a few years in London and then realised the error of my ways and moved back with my husband in 1996. My background as a financial advisor eventually led to working in estate agency, which is where I met Megan. When she set up on her own in 2005 I was thrilled to join her and here I am, doing something that I love and am lucky enough to be good at. I cannot imagine working anywhere else or with anyone else, and even though being a great estate agent is stressful and emotional, it is hugely rewarding and I wouldn’t swap it for the world!

    • What makes me smile:

      Long sunny days; really good locally sourced food and exploring in my VW camper.

    • Not my cup of tea:

      Having to cook my own tea.

    • Favourite Island spot:

      Gurnard Green at sunset – it is where my husband and I sat and decided to come back to the Island, and have never regretted it..

    • Guilty Pleasure:

      Strictly come dancing…  SEVEEEEEN!

    • Super Power (according to Megan):

      Quite simply the best estate agent on the IW.  (I’ve no proof but I dare you to find a better one!)

    A little bit about me...

    Born in Carisbrooke, I have lived on the Island all my life and love it here. I joined the MBEA team in 2014 as an Administrator and can honestly say submitting my application was one of the best career decisions I’ve ever made. Having not had any previous estate agency experience it was an exciting new challenge to learn from the ground up and have made new friends along the way. I now live in East Cowes with the men in my life (my amazing husband and two young sons).

    • What makes me smile:

      Sitting in front of my sewing machine working on my latest project.

    • Not my cup of tea:

      Frogs (they know my fear and always jump at me)

    • Favourite Island spot:

      Carisbrooke Castle – I have some great childhood memories of walking around the moat in height order with friends (I was always at the back for being the shortest)

    • Guilty Pleasure:

      Watching trashy MTV  programs.

    • Super Power (according to Megan):

      The most organised person I’ve ever worked with. (And unfailingly happy every day!)

    A little bit about me...

    I call myself an Islander after moving from Guildford in Surrey at the age of 8. I can honestly say it was the best decision that my parents made and living right by the seaside in Seaview is like a permanent vacation.  Coming from a Dance background unfortunately my circumstances changed after an injury which meant a change in career.  Still wanting to continue working with people and always having a passion for property it was a no brainer when a position at Megan Baker’s became available.  Being the newest member of the team I continue to learn more every day, but couldn’t wish for a better group of people to learn from.

    • What makes me smile:

      My two doggies greeting me after a day in the office.

    • Not my cup of tea:

      Clowns, never liked them never will.

    • Favourite island spot:

      Steep Hill Cove, whatever the weather it looks beautiful.

    • Guilty pleasure:

      Sweet and Salty popcorn, sounds so wrong but it’s so right!

    • Super Power (according to Megan):

      As our newest member with lots to learn, Grace has the spooky ability to instantly pick up the best traits from each of us.

    A little bit about me...

    My family moved over to the Island just before I was born, and have been here ever since. I moved off the Island to study a degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice, before spending a year converting it into a Law degree. My love for the Island meant a change in my career direction, which is how I came to work for Megan. I have been with the company since 2013 and I can honestly say I’ve never loved a job more. I live in Cowes with my husband, and our beautiful little boy.

    • What makes me smile:

      Being outside, rain or shine with my horse and dog in tow!

    • Not my cup of tea:

      Mushrooms and spiders (you can’t trust either of them).

    • Favourite Island spot:

      Yaverland beach – nothing better than an early morning gallop along an empty beach as the sun rises.

    • Guilty Pleasure:

      Chocolate (a bit obvious but there it is!)

    • Super Power (according to Megan):

      An amazing memory perfect for matching people & property. (And my clients tell me every day how lucky I am to have her!)

People say the nicest things...

  • So nice to have phone calls always returned, and ‘rightmove’ always updated with the correct information! I know I am not alone when I say they are simply a cut above everyone else.

    Ms J – Cowes

    Mrs C – Newport
  • Every member of staff whom I had contact with was helpful, informed, polite and professional. In fact I found nothing to criticise at all. I have no hesitation in recommending Megan Baker Estate Agents to anyone wishing to sell or buy a property on the Isle of Wight.

    Mr F – Carisbrooke
  • A smiling face is worth its weight in gold and they are ever present in your office.  We would have no hesitation in saying you are the best and recommending you above all others.

    Mr & Mrs W -Cowes
  • We have and we will continue to strongly recommend Megan Baker Estate Agents to anyone who wants a reliable, genuine and honest service, delivered with a gentle, personal touch.

    Mr & Mrs H – Northwood
  • Just a short note to say many thanks for all your help in selling my house, The service you offered was extremely professional & I would recommend you to all of my friends.  The sale will genuinely make a big difference to our lives here in Northern Ireland as it will now allow us to buy our dream home.

    Mr K – Cowes
  • Thank you all so much for all your hard work and dedication. You have all been truly amazing!

    Mr & Mrs T – Cowes
  • I would like to give a huge Thank You to Anne and the wonderful team at Megan Baker Estate Agents for all the help and support given to me in the sale of my house. Every member of the team was welcoming and friendly and ready to guide me through the process. I would strongly recommend this agency to anyone buying or selling their property.

    Miss A – Cowes
  • Thank you all for such an amazing and professional service.  You made a difficult situation very easy and took all of the stress away.

    Mrs M – Wootton
  • I wanted to say a big thank you for helping me sell my late parents bungalow. You were very compassionate, understanding and lovely people to work with at what was a difficult time. Would highly recommend you to anyone looking to sell their house.

     

    Mrs J – Northwood
  • I felt we were always represented fully by you and your team at Megan Baker, and this was important as we were generally remote from the location.  I want to thank you and your team so very much for navigating us to the successful conclusion and completion of sale.

    Mr R – East Cowes
  • We just wanted to say a belated ‘thank you’ for all of your hard work and expertise. This not only helped to sell my house, but was also instrumental in securing our purchase, for which we are both extremely grateful. We would definitely recommend you to friends and family.

    Ms M – Cowes
  • Despite the challenging property market conditions your sound advice from the beginning and the commitment of the staff at Megan Baker has been first class and no doubt made the difference between getting the sale clinched this spring or seeing  it unduly delayed.

    Mr L – Cowes
  • I have been very impressed with the professionalism and personal service that I received during the process of selling. I live 175 miles away but it never felt like it as the flow of information and updates were so very reassuring and pitched at exactly the right level. We encountered a hitch but you went beyond my expectations to help resolve it and keep the sale going, certainly going the extra mile for the client.

    Mr C Ventnor
  • Thank you so much for all your hard work, especially towards the end!  We would certainly recommend your agency to others.

    Mrs A – Ryde
  • We are delighted in the very professional way in which you and your team have efficiently dealt with each situation which arose during this journey of selling our property.  Throughout this sale, we have felt you have kept us regularly well informed of each opportunity and viewings and even when at times this was slow you kept us informed and engaged in the process.

    Mr R – East Cowes
  • Thanks so much for all your help to sell my flat. I appreciate it was a tricky one to sell, your perseverance and friendly ‘can do’ attitude helped get me through it!  I’m so glad my flat has sold to a couple who I think will appreciate the grandeur of the old house and I hope love living there as much as I did.

    Miss C – London
  • Empathy in this crazy world is a rare and wonderful thing and I genuinely did not expect it from a group of people I hardly knew but, you have endeavoured to care as much for me as you have for the sale of my mother’s property.

    Ms B – Ryde
