When talking with Theresa Baker, you’ll find her quick to discuss the responsibility she feels towards her clients. Says Baker: “I enjoy helping people achieve peace of mind with their insurance. I think that’s the secret to my success; loving what you do is important.” In fact, Baker has been an insurance agent for the last twenty-three years in an industry where most agents don’t stay for more than two. “I want to offer real choice to my clients so they can get exactly what they need at the right price,” said Baker. “That’s why I started Baker Insurance Group as an Independent Agency”.
Baker is committed to the education, protection and achievement of her clients’ insurance goals. “That’s what I would want an insurance agent to do for me,” says Baker, “and I absolutely believe in treating others as you would want to be treated.” The ability to make informed decisions based on individual needs is a responsibility that Baker takes seriously.
That dedication shows in Baker’s own background and commitments: she is currently a member of The American Association of Long-Term Care Insurance, the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors, and the National Ethics Bureau. In addition, she is actively involved in the local community and has chaired many community events. She mentors many insurance agents, is a sought-after motivational speaker on insurance selling, and holds local classes on the different aspects of insurance and its benefits.
Gloria joined BIG in November 2011 after a long sales career with a Fortune 100 company. She brings her passion of taking care of individuals and businesses with their insurance after watching several family members and friends struggle financially after not putting themselves first when it came to their insurance. She is determined that everyone have the same opportunity to not have this happen to them. She enjoys providing the resources and education to her clients so they can make their best decision to protect themselves from the financial unexpected when a catastrophic health event occurs.
She and her husband live in the Pacific Northwest and are avid hikers. If you are ever in Eastern Washington, you might run in to them on their way up a mountain with their dogs in tow.
