Riezl Baker

Sales Executive

Riezl has family members who live in eight countries and 18 states.

Riezl Baker started coming to Lake Oconee for the fishing.


She and her husband, Ted, would regularly make weekend excursions to the lake from their home in Atlanta, where she worked for a hotel corporation. At that time, the only grocery store was Jerry’s Bait & Tackle, but that didn’t stop this city girl from falling in love with the area’s scenic beauty.

After witnessing the community evolve over 20 years, Riezl has become an embedded part of the Reynolds and Lake Oconee community, known just as much for her famous lumpia and pancit dishes as her deep knowledge of local real estate. She will soon begin her 19th year as a Sales Executive for Reynolds Lake Oconee Properties.

From the Beatles and Sinatra to Bon Jovi and Maroon Five, Riezl is a lover of good music. It’s a love she’s passed on to her children, both of whom are accomplished performers in the Oconee Performing Arts Society (OPAS). However, their talent is not accidental, as Riezl is known in the Sales Office as the “Karaoke Queen” — particularly for her annual rendition of “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” by Pat Benatar at the yearly Christmas party. Footage is forthcoming.

Riezl is very active in the community and chaired the successful Heart and Soul Gala Fundraiser for three years that benefits St. Mary’s Hospital. She is also currently the Chair for the Hospital Foundation Board, co-founded the Lake Oconee Food and Wine Festival with her husband in 2010 to benefit education and is a past president of the Lake Country Board of Realtors.

Lastly, Riezl loves to bring her family and friends together through her cooking. She found a way to incorporate this passion with real estate by hosting her “unconventional” open houses, where you may find her rolling sushi or serving her homemade empanadas. When she hosts dinner at home, 25–30 people is not an uncommon crowd. There, aside from her famous and often-requested Filipino dishes, she may cook the fish she’s recently caught.
