Broker And Business Owner Tapped To Lead Cookeville Real Estate Team

COOKEVILLE, TN., – With more than three decades of experience in business ownership and real estate sales, Broker Ruby Baker has worked through many challenging business climates over the past 30 years.  The challenge it seems is clearly what attracts her to the opportunity to take the helm of Crye-Leike Cookeville – during one of the toughest real estate and home sales markets in history.


“I was recently looking closely at opening my own office when I got a call from someone at Crye-Leike who asked me to sit down and take a look at what the company had to offer,” said Ruby.  “I spent some time evaluating all they do to support agents and I was very impressed – especially with the corporate structure and technology.”


Before joining Crye-leike, Ruby was a Realtor with Century 21 in Sparta.  Now as the new Managing Broker she’s actively reaching out – primarily to newly licensed agents – with the opportunity for them to receive more training, support, marketing and other benefits.


“A lot of companies say they have the tools to help new agents become successful at real estate sales, but Crye-Leike really does,” said Ruby.  “I won’t sugar coat it – real estate sales is a tough profession. But I can honestly say the support at Crye-Leike will give a Realtor an advantage to build a business – if they work at it – with unlimited income potential.”


Ruby is a licensed Real Estate Broker in Tennessee assisting buyers and sellers in and around Putnam, White, Van Buren and Warren counties.  She specializes in all types of real estate sales with a focus on: commercial, investment properties, 1st time homebuyers, relocation, new home construction and farm & land. Ruby is a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Centurion, Multi Million Dollar Sales Producer and member of the Upper Cumberland Association of Realtors (UCAR), Tennessee Association of Realtors (TAR) and National Association of Realtors (NAR).


“Being a business owner in the past – I know a good corporate structure when I see one,” said Ruby. “After reviewing the Crye-Leike organization and meeting with managers – I was sure this was the company I wanted to be affiliated with.”
