Tripti Kasal, our former director of sales development, has been named the new vice president of sales. In her new role, Tripti will focus on increasing business for the company, as well as recruiting and manager development. She will also work closely with the branch managers to grow Baird & Warner’s presence in each market.
“Our emphasis has always been on quality over quantity, and with the incredible growth we’ve experienced over the last few years, we are ramping up our efforts to ensure each and every agent and office gets the support they need to be successful,” said Laura Ellis. “Tripti is a well-known, experienced real estate professional who will bring great value and expertise to this position.”
Baird & Warner experienced a record year in 2014. We hired 500 new brokers and added Plainfield, Hinsdale and Carpentersville offices to our roster, expanding to 25 branches located throughout Chicagoland. Baird & Warner also achieved more than $5 billion in sales, a first since 2007, and more than 25,000 written transactions, an all-time record.
Tripti joined Baird & Warner in March 2014. As the director of sales development, Tripti focused on training and mentoring broker associates, and she led the company’s Career Institute training class. Prior to joining Baird & Warner, Tripti was the executive vice president of brokerage operations at Jameson Real Estate where she managed more than 300 brokers and 25 support staff in three offices.
Tripti founded Real Living Infinity/Helios in 2005, growing the company to 75 agents in five years and later selling it to Jameson Real Estate in 2010. She has held numerous senior management roles in top Chicagoland real estate brokerages for more than 20 years.
