Top Workplace

We are empowered to be extraordinary — and it shows.

Behind every great company is a culture created by the professionals who are living its experiences and sharing the stories that define it. Throughout our rich history, one thing has remained consistent: we empower those around us to thrive. We are a team of like-minded but unique individuals working together to help homebuyers and sellers across Chicagoland achieve their real estate dreams.

By celebrating the exceptional strengths and empowering our broker associates and employees to be the best they can be, we create something extraordinary. Something impactful. Something recognized by the entire Chicagoland community. This year, Baird & Warner received its fourth consecutive Top Workplace award from the Chicago Tribune, naming us the #1 place to work in Chicagoland two years in a row and #1 in real estate four years running.      

“To me, being a Top Workplace four years running is about doing things the right way. It means creating a culture of open doors and open minds that empowers us to grow as individuals and thrive as a company. As we celebrate our 160th anniversary this year, I am immensely proud of all that we have achieved, and I firmly believe that by working together -- nearly 2,300 across Chicagoland -- we are building a solid foundation for the future.

- Steve Baird, president and CEO of Baird & Warner
