Baird & Warner is synonymous with Chicagoland — but did you know that our brokerage also offers agents national and global reach?
Here at Baird & Warner, all of us take fierce pride in being a part of Chicagoland’s largest independent and locally-owned real estate company. We just celebrated our 166th birthday; that’s more than a century and a half of making real estate easier for buyers and sellers across Chicagoland.
From helping to lead the rebuilding after the Great Chicago Fire, to expanding the L, to fighting for Fair Housing, to strengthening our communities through our Good Will Works charitable arm, our story is the story of Chicago. Our long history has provided us with deep roots in our community, giving us the kind of local experience and expertise that no other brokerage can offer. We know these communities better than anyone else, and we’re always committed to finding new ways to adapt, innovate, and meet our clients’ changing needs.
That means we’re committed to the idea of making real estate easier for everyone — even if you’re buying or selling outside of Chicagoland. We like to say that our agents are local experts with a global reach, with the strategic partnerships and connections it takes to provide our clients with unmatched service whether they’re buying or selling across the state, the country, or the world.
As a founding member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®, our agents can offer their clients the quality they’ve come to expect from Baird & Warner on a global scale. Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® is a selective global community consisting of the highest quality independent residential real estate companies around the globe, featuring more than 550 companies and 135,000 sales associates in 70 different countries, conducting more than one million transactions each year.
Our association with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® means that our agents can give their clients access to qualified, highly vetted real estate services anywhere in the country, or around the world.
For agents, our connections to Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® includes the reach of Luxury Portfolio International®, which allows brokers to introduce and showcase their luxury listings on the world stage. Luxury Portfolio International® attracts a broad and highly qualified global audience, marketing approximately 50,000 of the world’s most extraordinary homes each year. At Baird & Warner, we make sure that we give our agents the white glove support they need to deliver exquisite and exceptional service to their luxury clients — backed by the connections of the most well-respected and well-known experts in the luxury worldwide real estate market.
In addition to our global connections, Baird & Warner agents get access to experienced experts in mortgage and title, all under one roof. Our fifth-generation president and CEO Steve Baird pioneered the one-stop shop concept more than 30 years ago, because he knew it would lead to an easier experience for real estate brokers and their clients.
With our in-house partners at Key Mortgage Services and Baird & Warner Title, our agents don’t have to wonder if they’re working with the best — because Baird & Warner vets and handpicks everyone who joins our team, carefully selecting attorneys and loan originators based on their track record and agent testimonials. As an agent, you have a direct line of communication to all of the decision-makers, with direct access all the way to the top. This means you stay in the spotlight and at the center of the transaction.
Whether your clients are looking for a lake house in Wisconsin or a new adventure halfway across the country, our Key Mortgage lending partners can work closely with you to find the loan that’s just right. If your clients are looking outside of Illinois, that’s no problem; Key Mortgage is licensed in Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, Texas, and Florida, with more states on the way.
