Broker Associate

Hello! My name is Kenya Michelé “Mikki” Maize. I was created (born) on Chicago’s west side and cultivated (raised) in Oak Park, Illinois. My multiple names are proof positive, I’m a multi-passionate- Writer, Realtor®, student and visionary, kreative, producer, entrepreneur, and former Human Resources professional. I'm merrily married to Sean E. Maize (United States Navy Vet) aka “Papi” and the proud Mama of three adult children and phenomenal humans, Christopher (Southern Illinois alumni), Anayah (Illinois State alumni) aka “Chef Ny” and Joshua (Miami Ohio alumni-athlete). Becoming “Mimi” to two adorable grandsons, Nehemiah and Cameron has been the best! Blessing! Ever! We share an “amaizeing” family and enjoy living in Deerfield, and doing life together in and around our beloved North Shore community and our beautiful “Windy City!” Chicago. Real Estate is about Relationships…I chose Baird & Warner because of the family-owned and leading brokerage company’s connection to Chicago and shared commitment to client-families. I view and value my clients as an extension of my family- it's the charming midwest way. Grace Under Pressure…I believe my corporate and creative success has been directly attributed to my leadership skills, positive attitude, creative ideas, gift of writing, attention to detail, communication, negotiation, follow up and problem solving skills, integrity, and attentiveness, dedication, fortitude, personable approach and ability to connect with diverse groups from all walks of life, while providing my clients with world-class customer service. Kindness is Kenya…My role as your creative, innovative and caring B&W real estate professional is to collaborate with you and continue in that same spirit of excellence, by staying connected with my client-families, going above and beyond and offering my client-families the highest level of professionalism yet tailored and personalized service from our first communication- contract to close. In addition to educating my client-families about homeownership and empowering them throughout their real estate journey; I’ve equally enjoyed creating and collaborating with various mega ministries, multimedia artists, faith-based leading production companies and global business leaders. I’m courageously honing my creative craft and completing my BA degree in Film and Television (Screenwriting & Producing Major/Playwriting minor) at Columbia College Chicago. I’m also a graduate of the Joseph Business School of Entrepreneurship in Forest Park, Illinois and a graduate of Nicole Walters’ “$1K1Day” Business and Entrepreneurship Global Academy. I have extensive knowledge in the North Shore communities of Deerfield, Riverwoods, Bannockburn, Highland Park, Glenview, Northbrook and the City of Chicago- Downtown, West Loop, Gold Coast and Streeterville, Northern suburbs of Des Plaines, Vernon Hills, Lincolnshire, Northwest suburbs of Algonquin, West Dundee and Carpentersville, Western suburbs of Oak Park and River Forest and the Hyde Park, Kenwood and South Shore communities. My life is fuller because of my faith, family, friends, great food and good football. I enjoy being an active member of Willow Creek Community Church- North Shore/“Nourished” small group leader, the Chicago/Midwest National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, a longtime resident of the Deerfield community, and a member of North Shore – Barrington Association of Realtors, Mainstreet Organization of Realtors and serving and supporting the Women’s Council of Realtors®. I am truly blessed to do what I love and love what I do and firmly believe in building lifelong relationships, making a positive impact on those whom I come in contact with, creating moments and memories, serving and being a blessing to others…let’s connect for an “AMAIZEING” real estate experience with AMAZING results!
