Author: Special to CH2 | Photographer: M.Kat Photography

Heather Baker’s main goal is to make every client a client for life. Originally from Greenville, S.C., as a successful, full-time REALTOR® in the Lowcountry for the past 15 years, she has extensive knowledge of Beaufort and Jasper Counties.

You may hear the locals call her “Sugarbaker.” She has answered to that nickname for almost 20 years since her northern friends began saying she reminded them of the ladies from the show, Designing Women, whose company was Sugarbaker & Associates.

Baker has been married to her husband Larry for 24 years and has been a Lowcountry resident for 20 years. Larry is an Air Force veteran, so assisting military families with housing is close to Baker’s heart.

Baker has been recognized with 2017 and 2018 ERA Circle of Achievement and 2016 ERA Leader’s Circle awards. She is a Certified Negotiation Expert, ERA Distinctive Properties Certified Consultant, Accredited Buyer’s Representative, Certified Military Residential Specialist, Military Relocation Professional, and Cartus Certified Network Affinity Specialist with USAA and Navy Federal.

She successfully launched the REALTOR networking sessions in Jasper County, identifying the growth of the area and bringing REALTORS and businesses together for monthly learning and development sessions. She has served on the board of directors of the Hilton Head Area Association of REALTORS since 2013 and is the 2019 president-elect. In addition, she has served on the board of directors of the South Carolina REALTORS, is a 2018 graduate of South Carolina REALTORS Leadership Academy, and a longstanding recipient of the REALTOR Service Award. She also serves as co-chairperson of Jasper County REALTORS.

Baker further supports her industry through participation as a Major Investor and President’s Circle member. She is a member of the Beaufort County MLS, South Carolina Association of REALTORS and National Association of REALTORS.

Baker holds a BA degree in mass communications from Winthrop University. She is a strong proponent of giving back to her community and supports various local charities and schools throughout Jasper and Beaufort Counties. She is a member of Zeta Tau Alpha Coastal Islands Alumnae Chapter and the Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary. She participates in REALTORS Helping Real People, Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
