About Us

The Baird & Warner history is rich. But it’s where we are and what we stand for today that really matters.

Easier is in our DNA.

Here at Baird & Warner, we’ve always focused on what was best for our clients and our Chicagoland community. Finding easier ways to turn the American dream of home ownership into reality has been part of our DNA from the start. It also guides us into the future.


Our story is one of adapting and innovating to become the largest independent and locally-owned real estate company in Chicagoland. As a family-owned business, we work together to live up to the Baird & Warner reputation of doing the right thing.
Chicagoland is our home. We believe we help make it better when we give its residents the pride and security that comes with owning their home. We also believe in helping our employees thrive and, through The Good Will Network, helping those in need.
Over 162 years ago Lyman Baird came to Chicago to find opportunity in the city’s booming growth. From helping rebuild after the Great Chicago Fire to leading the fight for fair housing, Baird & Warner’s history is part of Chicago’s history.
