Laurie Baker created, marketed and administered Camden Property Trust’s first major investment fund, a $1.2-billion venture with approximately $450 million in total investment capacity.
As senior vice president of fund and asset management for Camden, Baker has been a member of Camden’s investment committee since 2008. Over her 17 years with Camden, she has also managed the operation of 10,000 apartments across Texas, and identified and acted on potential investments for the Houston-based company.
Her success is just one of the reasons we chose Baker to be one of the 2017 Women in Real Estate Award winners for Texas. Connect Media’s Women in Real Estate Awards honor the achievements and inspirational stories of those women who’ve reached respected positions of leadership, and play key mentorship roles for others in commercial real estate.
No matter how high up the ladder she climbs, she’s the same humble and loyal friend and peer, according to colleagues.
Baker is also the immediate past president of the CREW Network, former president of CREW Houston and chair of CREW Network’s Foundation. She is also on the Board of Directors Executive Committee for the National Multi-Housing Council, is a member of ULI’s Multifamily Bronze Council, and is Council Ambassador for ULI’s Foundation.
