I talked with several brokers prior to signing on with Baird & Warner.  There were many things that made Baird & Warner stand out from the rest of the market, but Lisa is what pushed it over the top.  She is quick to address questions or concerns, helps guide her agents through market changes and makes sure that we have the tools and communication needed to be the best in our marketplace.  The tools available to Baird & Warner agents are exceptional but putting them to work for you is the difference…and Lisa helps drive that home.  I am very glad that I chose to come to Baird & Warner and I look forward to many successful years working with Lisa.

" I researched several prominent real estate companies before deciding to interview at Baird & Warner.  I was very impressed when I had the privilege of meeting Lisa Kon.  Lisa is experienced and knowledgeable in all aspects of our industry.  It is the presence of managing brokers like Lisa that make the company the excellent place that it is.  She made the decision to join the company a no brainer.  She is an excellent professional,mentor and colleague."

Lisa Kon is patient and wise...always ready to give thoughtful advice.  She is a hard working manager whose knowledge of the market, paired with experience of actually having been an agent, makes her someone who can advise from a sensible point of view. Lisa is not a competitor...she is a collaborator. I immediately felt her advice was worth taking...and her insight is always helpful. Even though there is a staggering amount of business going on in the Edgebrook office, she always manages to find time to talk, or answer questions. She doesn't give advice from the top of her head, but rather listens, and considers before speaking. She is a valuable asset not only to newer agents, but also experienced agents that are seeking another opinion on challenging matters that sometimes arise. Practical...but with a sense of humor...Lisa is the best managing broker I've ever had the pleasure of working with.

I knew from the moment I started talking to Lisa that we would get along fabulously!     Lisa made me feel comfortable immediately as a prospective agent and invited me in to learn about the office and attend a meeting even before I had taken my real estate course.  What I appreciate the most about Lisa is that I am never left hanging with an unanswered question.  If she doesn't know the answer, she will find out and get back to me ASAP!   Her vast knowledge and ability to teach to your own level makes Lisa someone you should get to know.  Her unwavering dedication to taking care of people makes her someone you should trust.   Nikki Criel, Broker Associate Baird and Warner ~ Edgebrook

I am very proud to be a member of the Baird & Warner Office!  My Manager, Lisa Kon, is the "stronghold" of our office and is extremely influential in the Management of the office on the whole as well as being a "very hands on" and supportive manager.    She is always there to help, advise and keep us informed of up to date information to perform at our best levels of production!  Her guidance and personal support are outstanding!  She is available in times of any emergency  whether it be business based or personal.    I personally would recommend her as a Manager and as a stronghold of the Baird & Warner Company team!

I have had several managers during my real estate career.  Lisa is by far the best --ethical, knows the business, always ready to listen, and most important, has my back. 

-Kathy Elster
I am proud and fortunate to call Lisa Kon my manager.  Lisa possesses the best traits of a manager - she is knowledgeable, fair, friendly, understanding, caring, encouraging and is always available.  She leads by example and exemplifies a great manager.  I have been with Baird and Warner for 11 years and Lisa has continued to help me grow my business and encourage me to be the best.  Lisa provides a wonderful working atmosphere with top notch staff.  She provides great information and education through training sessions, meetings and speakers on a regular basis. I never hesitate to ask Lisa a question and know that I can rely on her response to guide me.  I couldn't ask for a better manager!

-Jan Kupiec
Even though Lisa manages a large office, I've never felt like "just another agent".  Lisa has always provided sound advice and direction for any question I've asked. She is a strong advocate for her agents in all aspects of their transactions and she truly wants you to succeed in your real estate career if you are willing to work for that success.   Most importantly is that Lisa sets a high ethical standard for herself and expects the same of her agents. Lisa is the type of managing broker most offices wish they had.  She wants the best for her agents and makes B&W Edgebrook one of Chicago's Best Places to Work.

My managing broker, Lisa Vitale Kon, is the best because she is there for me no matter what time I need her. Her marketing skills are second to none. I chose to hang my license with Baird & Warner because of how welcoming she was. She’s incredibly supportive, always ready to work and incredibly motivational! Thanks Lisa!
