Licensed in ID

Reneé Baker was born and raised in rural Eastern Oregon, where timber and cattle sustained the small communities. She worked at a young age and developed a strong work ethic. In 1982 she moved to Idaho and became the youngest licensed real estate agent in the state; at that time, she was 19. Reneé has an affection for pairing sellers and buyers for the best property ownership outcome. She aims to assist buyers and sellers in navigating with ease throughout the transactions, where sometimes there are challenges. Using background and experience, organizational skills, and efficient processes are like a solid vessel helping clients avoid rough waters.

Reneé currently lives on a ranch in Washington County, Idaho, in the North Crane Creek area with her husband, raising cattle, hay, and horses. They have more than 40 years of experience in the beef cattle and commercial hay business between the two of them. She has been very involved with the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and State agencies on grazing allotments. Working with these agencies and other ag-related organizations is a primary asset to clients, helping to traverse through each entity’s process.

When Reneé first became licensed, it was a most challenging time in the real estate market. During the downturn, she was able to land a job with Safeco Title Company, marketing title policies to lenders only. Before returning to Eastern Oregon, Renee’ worked for some top cow/horse trainers in the National Reined Cowhorse Industry to learn the skills of training colts and the art of finishing bridle horses. This increased her circle of people and allowed her to live on a couple of beautiful horse breeding facilities on the Big Island of Hawaii and Northern California. Eventually, she returned to the fascination of the real estate marketing world and became an appraiser. While owning and operating a small appraisal business in Grant County, Oregon, she was approached by a mill and timberland owner and asked aboard as a timber purchaser and accepted. Her duties were land and timber procurement. After a few years, she became the manager of the forestry department and was responsible for leading a team that obtained logs to sustain several Oregon mills. This entailed working with landowners and multiple agencies and cooperating with various environmental groups and political figures.

From the West to Washington, D.C., Reneé has pursued her vision of citizens having the freedom to manage natural resources with future sustainability as a priority. She is committed to serving clients to achieve their ultimate image of owning land in the west. Reneé feels very privileged and inspired to be a part of the Fay Ranches team!

Reneé is a member of the Idaho Board of Realtors, Weiser River Cattleman’s Association, Idaho Wild Sheep Foundation, and Fay Ranches Community Foundation.
