A Southern California native with an extensive knowledge of the region’s communities, schools, shopping and more renders Claire Baxter one of the areas most knowledgeable real estate professionals — and as a licensed agent since 1989, her broad-spanning experience makes her one of the most qualified. Having worked as a mortgage originator for 10 years, she complements a decade of experience as a REALTOR® with valuable expertise when it comes to one of the most vital components in any real estate transaction: finance. Furthermore, having owned a home in Bear Brand since 1997, she’s got a firsthand perspective on the local marketplace, giving her invaluable insight when it comes to opportunities and trends. With the support of Southern California’s most forward thinking real estate brokerage, Claire has found not only an organization that’s like-minded when it comes to their commitment to outstanding personalized service above all. She’s found a unique working environment that guarantees clients the best possible experience and results, and one that’s conducted its business in an eco-friendly fashion since its launch in 2006. With amenities like the latest in industry technology, an award-winning in-house marketing team and the affiliation of the industry’s most successful agents and brokers, Surterre stands in a class by itself. Claire is passionate about her community and devotes a great deal of her spare time to community initiatives. In addition to volunteering with Harvest Orange County, she works as the Executive Director of Sports Gift, Inc., an all-volunteer charity that collects and distributes sports equipment to disadvantaged children locally and internationally.
