Annie Baker Cleaver
Annie Baker starting working full-time as a Realtor in 2003, but it wasn't until 2010 that opened Annie's eyes to a niche of real estate that she was passionate about. She was hired by her first "Senior" client, a lovely 81 yr old woman named Lillian. She needed to downsize from a 4,000sq ft custom house to a 500sq ft apartment in an independent living community. Talk about emotional and so many aspects she needed to help Lillian with. Annie quickly realized there were so many businesses focused on helping different aspects of this niche: Senior Move Managers, Senior Placement Advisors, Estate sale companies and more. What she also realized was, finding companies with integrity was critical as elder abuse is rampant! Thus began Annie’s team with the best in this niche.

I have held real estate licenses in three US states (California, Arizona and Wyoming) and one Canadian province (Ontario) over the past 25+ years, plus earned my mortgage license to provide a wealth of knowledge to serve my clients.
I am originally from Atherton, CA, but have lived in two other countries (Canada and Finland) plus traveled around the world on a ship. I met my (then) husband in College in Upstate New York, (St. Lawrence University) who went on to play professional hockey, including in the NHL (yes he played for the San Jose Sharks among others). To say I know what it’s like to move and buy/sell homes on a personal level is an understatement.
We moved back to Silicon Valley (Los Gatos) when our two daughters were in middle school. I have called this area home again since 2005.
In 2018 I married a Sergeant at the San Jose Police Department and am now lucky enough to round out my family with 2 boys. We are the mini Brady Bunch.
Three things I know for sure about myself:
1. My life purpose is to be kind
2. I love playing Ice Hockey
3. I love Real Estate
Volunteer life past and present:
Hospice of the Valley
“Furry Friends” dog therapy with my dog, Winston, visiting Assisted living/nursing homes.
Alinor grew up with her grandmother who ran a senior facility out of her home. She was exposed to seniors at a young age and helped serve their meals and keep them company.
Alinor believes in giving back to her community and donates her time to the non-profit organization “Dress For Success,” empowering women to achieve economic success by providing professional attire, support and tools. She enjoys volunteering at Opera San Jose and the San Jose Rose Garden.
