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 three doggy babies (you’ll meet the gang if you pop into my office).

    • My role as Managing Director:

      The overall running of the business (fun stuff like accounts and VAT returns); specialist market appraisals, especially village property and making sure we offer a level of service that surprises and delights our customers.

    • What makes me smile:

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

    • Not my cup of tea:

      Incorrectly used apostrophes on advertising signs. Grr!

    • Favourite Island spot:

      Brook beach at low tide on a freezing but bright winter morning.

    • Guilty Pleasure:

      Crocheting when I should be doing my VAT return! (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!

    • My role as Office Manager:

      The daily running of the office and supporting the team; market appraisals all over the Island and the juicy, difficult parts of sales progressing.

    • 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...

    Luca – Head of Well Being

    Luca, on the left, is here to help us de-stress during our busy day in the office. His soulful eyes and gentle manner can only make you feel chilled, and remind you what is important in the world. He may not say much, but his loving nature speaks volumes and he helps us all get through particularly difficult transactions.

    Nimrod – Head of Reception

    Nimrod, on the right, loves to greet clients when they come into the office with a gentle woof and a wag of his tail. He also thinks of himself as a bit of a security guard, so be prepared for him to check your shopping bags for you, just in case you happen to be carrying sausages, which he might have to take away for inspection.

     

     

People say the nicest things...

  • We dealt with Anne who was amazing from start to finish, so friendly, helpful and professional; everyone we spoke to in the office was great. We would definitely hope to use Megan Baker again in the future not only for buying but for selling too. Thank you so much for making buying our first home so easy!

    Miss G & Mr L – Cowes
  • Megan and her staff have been superb right from the outset, we are convinced that nobody could have improved on the wonderful service we received. I have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending the company to anybody. We will always be grateful to Megan and her fantastic staff. A big, big thank you to them all.

    Mr & Mrs D – Newport
  • 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.

    Mrs S – East Cowes
  • I was impressed with the performance of Megan Baker. A far better experience than I have received from estate agents in the past.

    Mr B – Brighstone
  • Anne, Megan, Jennifer and the team at Megan Bakers have been fantastic throughout our house sale. Communication has been great, with almost daily updates from the team. If you’re contemplating some of the web-only agents then I seriously urge you to consider the other benefits you receive from using a local agent. I hope that we won’t be using any more estate agents for a long while, but if we do, it will be Megan and the team!

    Mr & Mrs C – Cowes
  • I would whole heartedly recommend Megan Baker.

    Ms B – Cowes
