About Us

David Baker & Company was founded by David Baker and opened in 1969. We are an independent Estate Agent and Chartered Surveyor based in Penarth and pride ourselves on offering a very professional and caring service in all matters of the property market, to both clients old and new.

Our company has earned a reputation for being "large enough to give great service and small enough to care" and properties that are on the market with David Baker & Company are prominently exhibited in a large window display and advertised on a regular basis in the local and national press.

By remaining totally independent we have always been able to meet all demands of a rapidly changing market place and our fees have always been, and will continue to be, as competitive as any of our rivals.

All our properties are marketed on Rightmove, the industry leading property website, as well as OnTheMarket. We alse use social media and communicate to buyers and sellers through our Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter channels. We are members of The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and The Guild of Property Professionals.
