Melissa Baker and Tracy Foreman are realtors with a savvy knowledge of the housing market. Both are moms who’ve lived in Cypress for more than 15 years each, raised their children here and put their experience to use for their clients. They know the unique personalities of different areas of town, the schools, sports groups, and what locations might suit families for their specific lifestyle.
“We know the community, and I think that’s what sets us apart from a lot of others,” Melissa says.
Together the two make up the Baker Foreman Team, a Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Premier Properties real estate team. And while they have years of experience helping families, they certainly can help those in all stages of life such as empty-nesters or those wanting to downsize. Melissa is a certified luxury specialist with Berkshire Hathaway, giving her a special edge for buyers looking for upscale properties or sellers with affluent homes.
SERVING CLIENTS HOUSING NEEDS
Whether buying or selling a luxury property or helping a family find their first home, these two prides themselves on focusing on each clients’ unique story.
“The Baker Forman Team is very in tuned to their clients' needs in terms of really listening and asking questions,” Tracy says. “Being aware. Trying to merge all the boxes they need to check. Focusing on them and doing the right thing by them.”
The home-buying search is ever-evolving, but the team works alongside their clients to help them discover exactly what they want. The process can take months, especially in the current housing market, and can extend into the far reaches of Houston and the cities beyond.
“Sometimes people don’t know exactly what they want until they see it,” Tracy says. “You need to look at a lot.”
With home inventory at record lows and sales happening at lightning speed, the team works to make sure their buyers’ offers stand out from others.
“We prepare our buyers for what’s going to happen and what they’re up against,” Tracy says. “You can offer them ideas to make their bid noticeable for the seller.”
A FAMILY DREAM HOME
One of their most recent listings is this Copper Lakes five-bedroom family home with a sparkling backyard pool, three-car garage and plenty of space for outdoor entertainment. This home is truly for a large family that wants to enjoy quality time together both inside and outdoors. Located on a roomy cul-de-sac, the property stretches more than one-third of an acre and includes a pool and large grassy backyard with plenty of space to play ball or let the pets roam free. An outdoor fire pit serves as a great place for gatherings with family and friends on cool evening nights. The lagoon-style pool and hot tub also make this backyard a great place for entertaining or relaxing.
Inside, the newly-renovated kitchen offers ample space for cooking big family meals or serving party platters. The space has a large island and bar with new countertops and cabinets. New stainless steel appliances add a clean finishing touch to this spacious culinary headquarters.
On the first floor is a large living room, breakfast room, dining room and smaller room overlooking the yard which could serve as an office or guest bedroom.
Upstairs the master bedroom has a set of wide windows overlooking the pool and a master bathroom with double sinks, a large tub and an extra-roomy walk-in closet. The closet, which has its own window and lots of natural light, makes it convenient to store and find your fashionable outfits and accessories. Also upstairs, is a game room which could be an ideal spot for a pool table, entertainment center, evening drinks or all three. A small area adjacent to the game room could also be a great place for an at-home workout or gym area.
This home is impeccably maintained with fresh paint, new carpets, a neatly manicured lawn and a location close to retailers and great schools. It’s complete with everything for a family who enjoys spending time together at home.
