William Baker

Architecture Director
(Licensed as William J Baker)
License: California DRE #01931658
Specializing in the sale of historic and architecturally significant homes across Southern California, William Baker has represented iconic properties designed by Rudolph Schindler, Richard Neutra, Ray Kappe, A. Quincy Jones, Gregory Ain, and Douglas Rucker, among others.

An excellent negotiator with an impeccable eye for detail, William is passionate about connecting clients with the right property while identifying the next steward for L.A.’s most treasured architectural homes. Throughout his life, William’s clients, associates, friends and family have looked to, leaned on, and trusted him for his opinion, whether in need of his practical, aesthetic, emotional or ethical advice. His decades of sales, marketing and design experience have equipped him with the skills and know-how to deftly meet and exceed the needs of a discerning clientele.

With a keen eye and interest in classic modern architecture, William chose for his own residence L.A.’s eastside community of Montecito Heights. His 1962 John L. Pugsley AIA-designed home was one of five properties selected for the 2018 Dwell on Design home tour.

William became an agent to help others find similar satisfaction in stewarding storied properties and navigate what may be the single most important financial decision of their lives. He has a passion for storytelling and savvily works toward focused editorial coverage of his listings.

William’s sold listings have been featured in Architectural Digest, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Forbes, USA Today, The Today Show, Good Morning America, Inside Edition, and many more.

William serves on the Board of Directors of the Heritage Square Museum in Los Angeles, is a member of the Los Angeles Conservancy, and is the Vice President of the Porsche Club of America, Los Angeles.

In addition to real estate, William is the creator and curator of Architecture and Automobiles, a series of tours, rallies and events designed to connect people who share his passion for historical homes and collectible cars. He’s organized events in collaboration with Cadillac, Porsche, The Motoring Club, Pendry Hotels and others.
