Ron Baker has called NYC home for over 35 years. For the past 20, he and his family have been Bedford-Stuyvesant residents. Ron has an extensive understanding of NYC real estate from an uncommon vantage point—he spent 20 years as a licensed contractor and construction superintendent, and he is also an investor. As such, he offers clients valuable knowledge that can only come from years of experience in the field. Though Ron has transitioned from the building side to the real estate side of the business, what he stands for remains the same. He is driven by his commitment to integrity and desire to achieve the best possible outcome for clients, which results in a large percentage of enthusiastic referrals. Ron intuitively understands clients’ needs and continues to provide unparalleled service. His entrepreneurial endeavors include co-ownership of Minka Brooklyn and The Compound Co-work Brooklyn, a community-led wellness center and co-working business. Ron enjoys practicing yoga, playing music, painting and bike riding with his family.

Brooklyn Architecture
Here we have it all—stunning rows of historic brownstones, modern skyscrapers, colorful Victorians, Romanesque Revival works of art and everything in between.
Diverse & Vibrant Neighborhoods
Just as the architecture differs throughout Brooklyn, so too does the vibe. Each community has a unique geography and its own cultural hub with diverse cuisine, shops and people.
Prospect Park
526 beautifully landscaped acres of pure bliss. A fun place to observe the changing seasons while you take a stroll or ride the trails.

Whether you are in the mood for an art show, a museum walk, some street art, catching a film or play at a historical theatre, seeing live music or dance, the choices are endless.
We utilized Ron Baker and his firm, Baker Design-Build, for an extensive and complicated renovation and addition of a new floor and roof deck to our existing brownstone. From the beginning, Ron was a wonderful and honest person to work with and was instrumental in helping us with initial planning and design as we continued working with our architect, all the way through project closeout. With a project of this scope and size, there were many moving parts and people involved in the project. We could always count on Ron to help us see through the "malaise", by taking the time to explain things to us to ensure we understood everything. As with any project, there are always adjustments that need to be made midstream, and Ron was always quick to communicate necessary changes and willing to find creative and cost-effective solutions.

Ron is a superb partner! He is constantly evaluating how to build things better and he is an expert at reclaiming materials. Most importantly, he has a great eye for design while taking pride in his craftsmanship!

My husband and I hired Ron for two gut renovation projects in NYC. What sets him apart is his level of commitment and the standard of work at which he delivers. If you are looking for [someone] who genuinely cares about your project, shows attention to detail and who would go the extra mile, look no further.
