Vice President & Designated Managing Broker

Lake Zurich -  847.726.2100

Hello, and WELCOME!

Did you know that you've come to the right place? That's right, because Baird & Warner is the oldest real estate brokerage in the United States with 165 years and a six-generation track record of unparalleled success. That means when it comes to real estate, we've seen a thing or two, and our ability to adapt is rather extraordinary.

Why is this important to me, you might ask? That's a very fair question. As the Designated Managing Broker of our Lake Zurich office, you can be assured that I select only the best agents in the business to represent our multi-generational brand and be our face to the greater Lake Zurich communities including Hawthorn Woods, Kildeer, Long Grove, Deer Park, Wauconda and the surrounding areas.

               The #1 expectation I have is that my broker associates always put the customer's interest front and center.

               The #2 expectation is that my broker associates always put the customer's interest front and center. You get the point! Our corporate DNA is built on doing the right thing and that starts with our clients. Additionally, Education and Training is what we're known for among our peers in the industry. That means you are working with highly skilled real estate professionals who thoroughly understand the current market dynamics and the various factors impacting the real estate marketplace at any given time. And that's the kind of expertise you need on your side!

FOR OUR SELLING CLIENTS, my broker associates understand how complex, personal and truly emotional, not to mention highly inconvenient, selling your home can be. They're taught how to make your life EASIER during the entire transition. Actually at Baird & Warner, we're all about Easier! When working with a member of our Lake Zurich team, you get an INSTANT TEAM on your side, from attorneys to contractors, staging professionals, marketing services, title service providers, administrative staff and more all focused on providing you what we refer to as an EPIC Experience! With your designated broker at the helm, they'll be leading you through every step of the process, leaving no stones unturned. We've truly and genuinely got your back!  Our agents are trained to utilize the most progressive tools available in the industry to give your property the vastest exposure possible bar none! We leverage a targeted social media marketing strategy and can identify active buyers in your price point, school district and # of bedrooms before we even go live with the listing of your property. Because we know real estate and genuinely care about your goals and concerns, we're prepared to lead you through every step of the home selling process. We know how to anticipate issues, vet out qualified buyers, negotiate strategically, coach and educate you appropriately, expedite the process while securing you the highest price and get you across the finish line and onto the next great adventure in your life and on time!

FOR OUR BUYER CLIENTS, we want to make sure that you understand all of the important facets of the home buying experience and that you have a seasoned advocate on your side leading you every step of the way. Buying a home is serious business but it should also be carefree and FUN! YES, FUN!!! At Baird & Warner, we're all about EASIER (and fun), so let us do all the heavy lifting. From pre-approval to home search and showings, to structuring and submitting your offer to strategically negotiating in your best interest, navigating inspections and more. With all these moving parts you can feel at peace that you're in the very best of hands.

If you're in need of real estate expertise and guidance, please give me a call on my direct line at (847) 530-5513. It would be my pleasure to answer any questions you might have, and I'll personally select the agent on my team best suited to work with you.

INTERESTED IN A CAREER IN REAL ESTATE? Or, perhaps you're already an active licensed broker in need of greater support, mentoring and coaching to take your career to the next level, I'd welcome the opportunity to get acquainted. At Baird & Warner, our Designated Managing Brokers do NOT sell. That's right. And It's an intentional decision. That means my entire focus is on YOU! Please give me a call, text or send me an email, and let's get that conversation started. It would truly be my pleasure!
