Baker Mortgage was started in 1955 by Gordon R. Baker, a native Houstonian who grew up in a modest home on Anita Street in downtown Houston. He learned the mortgage and real estate business from his mother and grandfather. They instilled in him a strong work ethic as well as a sense of decency and honor that he is fondly remembered for today.
In 1977, Gordon’s daughter Cathy came to work with him on what was supposed to be a temporary basis. Even though it had never been “the plan”, she had literally been around the business all of her life. Cathy was fortunate to work with her father for almost eighteen years and continues to run the business in a manner of which he would be proud of today.
Baker Mortgage is proud to work with and sponsor many organizations in our community that we feel closely embody our values and principles. We are honored to be associated with numerous local and national charities and organizations and help support those in need.
