About Treasure Realty
History of Treasure Realty
Linda & Richard Baker are Eastern North Carolina natives and both of them grew up playing on Topsail Island. They have over 40 years combined experience selling real estate in the Topsail area, and their family has owned property on Topsail Island since the 1970's.
At the young age of 26, Richard began his real estate career on Topsail Island. In three short years, he had out sold all of the Century 21 agents in North Carolina. By the time he was 30 years old, he had received two of the coveted Century 21 Centurion Awards. Soon afterwards, his tenacity, success, and pioneering spirit led him to begin a real estate business of his own.
In 1990, Richard opened Treasure Realty, with his mother and his cousin as his first two agents. In subsequent years, the business has become even more of a family affair, with seven Bakers now on staff! For the past 23 years, Treasure Realty has continued to flourish, growing to be the overwhelming leader in Topsail Island real estate. In that time, the Treasure Team has closed over $550 million in the Topsail area!
While he has worked diligently to make his dream a reality, Richard attributes much of his (and Treasure Realty's) success to the hand of God at work in his life. He and Linda are grateful for God's blessings on their business and in their family life as well. Recently, Treasure Realty has been blessed to be able to give back to the community, helping to fund N. Topsail Beach Renourishment efforts, partnering with Mercy Chefs to bring disaster relief after Hurricane Sandy, and supporting the work of the Dunklin Memorial Church Regeneration Center in Okeechobee, FL.
Richard says, "If the Lord is willing, I'm going to teach my grandchildren to catch fish on Topsail and retire in the Topsail area - truly God's paradise!"
