Richard Baker grew up in Truckee and then eventually moved to Rocklin. He attended Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and received a BA degree. After graduating, he launched his career by accepting a job as an Assistant Project Manager with Panattoni Construction. He also worked for as a Marketing Development Manager for Coca-Cola.
As a member of the Carlile team, Richard’s focus is on loans. Other loan officers may not be able to put together your loan because of its complexity, but Richard believes the toughest loans are the most fulfilling. He is available 7 days a week and at all hours of the day and strives to provide exceptional customer service and create a positive atmosphere. When he is not working on your loan, he is giving back to the community. He donates to the America’s Homeless Veterans (AVP) and participated in distributing toys for the Salvation Army, Toys for Tots. Another great event Richard donates time is, “Movie in the Park” at La Sierra Park, that Carlile sponsors.
During his off time, Richard enjoys spending time with his two children, Sean and Vanessa, instilling in them his love for the outdoors by hiking and climbing. Richard is proud to coach Sean’s basketball team while watching Vanessa participate in gymnastics and tumbling. Most recently Richard has taken up swing dancing. This has been a fun way to not only stay in shape but also step out of his comfort zone and try something new.
Richard is determined to provide you with outstanding customer service with a smile. He is committed to closing your loan in 30 days or under. Richard’s loyalty is to his client.
