Baird & Warner Announces Gateway Townhome Community in Northbrook from Prominent North Shore Builder and Partner, The Jacobs Companies -

CHICAGO (Nov. 10, 2017) — Baird & Warner, Chicagoland’s largest locally owned independent residential real estate services company, is bringing 68 new townhomes/rowhomes to Shermer Road in downtown Northbrook, IL, through trusted builder The Jacobs Companies. The new Gateway development is currently launching with phase one sales beginning in late 2017. Its urban-style town and row homes have a range of floor plans and price points within walking distance of the Northbrook Metra station. School District 28, multiple food markets, restaurants, cafes, coffee shops, banking, and more are all easily accessible from Gateway.

Gateway has something for every lifestyle. Designed by Pappageorge Haymes, the maintenance-free town and row homes range from 2,189 to 2,745 square feet in four distinct floor plans that let buyers customize every amenity. Buyers can have first- and upper-level master bedrooms, roof tops decks, and two-car garages. The Jacobs Companies’ Design Studio provides a unique opportunity for buyers to choose from the newest products, colors, and styles with the assistance of an on-staff interior designer.

Baird & Warner’s partnership with The Jacobs Companies includes exclusive sales and marketing services for the Deerfield, Ill.-based luxury homebuilder, which has served the North Shore area for 82 years. The builder has already brought five new-home communities to the North Shore, including The Heritage in Highland Park and Taylor Junction in Deerfield. Now The Jacobs Companies returns to the Village of Northbrook, where the company got its start in the 1950s.

“Like all home sellers, builders are looking for a competitive advantage when it comes to listing their homes,” said Laura Ellis, president of residential sales and executive vice president of Baird & Warner. “We offer the rare ability to access our network of more than 2,300 agents representing the Chicago area, plus marketing tools that are specialized to put development listings in front of thousands of prospective buyers. This kind of market exposure allows our development partners to focus on building homes and expanding their business while Baird & Warner oversees sales of their premium developments.”
