Our Sales Professionals: Experience That Gets Results!
KIMBERLY ANN BAKER, Sales Agent & Northern Dutchess Realty's Top Producer Telephone: 845-625-3031 • Email:
“I am better known as 'Kimba', I grew up in Dutchess county and have lived in Rhinebeck Village for more than 21 years.
I come from a real estate family that has been selling properties in Dutchess County for over 47 years. I have been successfully continuing the family tradition in real estate. I have been with Northern Dutchess Realty since 2002 and the top-selling agent for the past 12 years. I enjoy helping people with the important transition of both selling and/or buying a home.
“I have worked and traveled throughout the world and speak four languages. I have a BFA and an MFA in fine arts, and I have worked in both social work and the arts. I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Niger, West Africa, and worked professionally for non-profit agencies. I started the Northern Dutchess Community Hebrew School which is still thriving today. I continue to be very involved in volunteer work in my community. I am married with two boys who grew up in Rhinebeck Village, and we have two wonderful collies.”
Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in Rhinebeck, NY. I would have never got the home I bought without Kimba. She is the most honest, attentive, insightful broker I have ever met in my life, and I met a few! She was generous with her time and relentless efforts to make that very complicated transaction happen. During and after the process she remained dedicated. — Written about Kimberly (Kimba) Baker on 03/20/2018
Kimba helped us through a difficult and stressful life event, and eased our minds during negotiations and made staging our home a breeze. Thank you Kimba! — 01/20/2018 - misra
Kimba was absolutely invaluable as a broker and we would highly recommend her. She has a tremendous amount of experience in advising on property purchases in the local market, so could immediately draw our attention to many items we would otherwise have overlooked. She was proactive, responsive and engaged in every aspect of the transaction, from inspection through to closing, and helped coordinate everything and everyone we needed to get us to the finish line. A true professional, she went over and above to give us the smoothest possible experience, and was a pleasure to work with. —01/21/2018 – Nancy
I had a great experience with Kimba as the realtor for the sale of my home in the Town of Poughkeepsie. I felt comfortable and at ease from the time she came over to do the appraisal, throughout the selling process and all the way through until I closed successfully. She also was invaluable in helping me stage my home to make it attractive and desirable. She communicated with me on a regular basis, was always reachable in response to my questions, worked well with my buyers' agent and the other professionals involved. I felt a trust in her expertise and also appreciated her kindness and patience with me. Highly recommended!
Kimba did an exceptional job both listing and selling our house. She brought in the buyers herself and even had a backup offer lined up. She was persistent and just did not give up always doing what she said she would do. She always called us back and gave us honest helpful feedback. We highly recommend Kimba to anyone who wants a knowledgeable agent who follows through and gets the job done. — 06/27/2017 - Pat

Honest, professional and easy to work with, Gail not only steps up to the plate but hits a home run every time we have used her as our real estate agent! -- Joel Weisbrod
As first time homebuyers Gail really helped us to understand everything and took us on countless trips to find the perfect home and she certainly made sure she got us the best deal possible! When we had to sell a family property she fought just as hard to move the property quickly at the best price! --- Kelly Mancuso
Gail was an excellent real estate agent from beginning to end. She was more knowledgeable about comparable properties and more well-prepared to price our property than either of the other two agents we interviewed. She coached us on what upgrades would pay off in the sale of our home and how to stage our home to show to its best advantage. Our home sold quickly and at a price above what we expected. Smart and savvy about her business. -- Sue Russell
My wife and I fell in love with a charming home and our first realtor actually told us to move on and look elsewhere when we hit complications. A family member referred Gail and shortly after we were signing on that very same house! Gail is knowledgeable and she gets things done! Couldn't be happier. -- Drew Tarttier
MICHAEL LYNCH, Sales Agent Telephone: 609-529-6098 • Email:
"I am amazed by the people I have met and the beauty of the Hudson River Valley. My wife and I have made our way up here by way of Brooklyn, where I settled after touring the states and Europe extensively as a full-time musician. Originally from Dublin, Ireland, I love calling New York home and exploring the landscape and architecture of the area. New Yorkers are such creative people and have an extraordinary ability to make homes of new spaces. Being in on the ground floor of helping people with this transition is very exciting. I hope that my Irish sensibility and laid-back quality combined with my excitement and attention to detail make for a wonderful partnership in selling your house or finding the new place you will call home."

“Meeting with people, learning what their dreams are and then trying to help them find that perfect is home is very rewarding. In a prior life I was in publishing, but have been working at real estate in Rhinebeck for more than 20 years. This just never gets old.

"I am obsessed with real estate! Dually licensed in NYC and Rhinebeck, I split my time between homes in Manhattan and the bucolic Hudson Valley. When not working with Douglas Elliman, NYC’s #1 real estate firm, I can be found at my home near Rhinebeck. Whether exploring local farms, scouring the antique shops or savoring yet another amazing meal, I am enthralled with the countless opportunities here in the Hudson Valley.
"I came to real estate after a successful career in showroom sales & management in the NYC fashion industry. My experience with historical restorations in NYC, Key West FL, Westport CT and Rhinebeck NY uncovered a true passion. I love finding the perfect home for my clients, whether their dream is a NYC apartment or a house in the Hudson Valley/Catskill Region. I bring my clients greater insight on every level because buying or selling a home is not just a financial transaction, but an emotional one as well. My clients enjoy working with me because I understand their needs and desires. I work alongside my husband, Patrick Hellwig, also a licensed real estate agent, to provide exceptional service and attention to every client. Let us help you find your home here in the Hudson Valley!"
