R D Baker
As a kid R.D. was always looking for an opportunity. “I mowed lawns, delivered papers and had a hay hauling business at 15 years old among other things”. Along with a sense of entrepreneurism, was a passion for Christian ministry and having an impact on those around him.
This led R.D. down the path of education. As a High School teacher and football and basketball coach as well as a theater coach he was able to have an affect on many. However, after 13 years in education with 4 daughters of his own, he felt it was time to fulfill that need to be in a dynamic business. R.D. started a handy-man business that morphed in being a warranty manager for a fortune 500 national homebuilder, Centex Homes. He was able to prove his acumen and desire to learn other areas of the home building business. He continued as a field manager, supervising the building of the new homes. He moved to sales and culminated his advance into Sales Manager/National Sales Trainer where he worked as part of a team to train over 2,000 sales people all over the country from coast to coast. When Centex Homes was bought by another national builder, R.D. was able to help in the development of a sales and marketing program for a small regional builder, Chartered Homes at Latitude at Vista Ridge.
After many years of urging from Darin, of Ambassador Colorado Real Estate, and much prodding, R.D. says, “I can’t think of another place that I can contribute more. The opportunity to help in business in Colorado and the impact I can have on the talented team of Ambassador is a welcome journey”.
In his spare time, R.D. enjoys the four G’s — golf, guitar, grilling and grandkids.
