Most real estate offices will be led by a Managing Broker. But very few give agents unparalleled access to a full-time management team with more than 50 years of combined experience in Chicago real estate, whose sole focus is on accelerating your success at every step of the way.
That’s exactly what agents at every stage of their careers experience at Baird & Warner – LIncoln Park.
At every level, our brokerage’s leadership is made up of people who truly understand what agents need to be successful, and who are truly committed to providing the very best tools, resources, training, and support to make it happen — especially when it comes to pivoting and meeting unexpected challenges head on.
At Baird & Warner – Lincoln Park, we know that strong support and ongoing training are essential to keeping the flow of business moving. That’s why our office has a full-time management staff of three to help give our brokers unrivaled assistance, guidance, and mentorship, including Managing Broker David Bailey, Assistant Manager Negeen Masghati, and Sales Support Manager Diana Duvall.
While other brokerages have frequent turnover and Managers who are stretched too thin trying to cover multiple offices, Baird & Warner has always made it a point to make sure that the agents who join can count on us to be there for them. We have in-person staff here at the office six days a week, and our Managers are consistently available on a daily basis to answer phone calls, meet face-to-face, or hop on a Zoom — even if it might mean connecting after hours or on the weekend. This means that the agents in our office never have to worry about getting a timely response, playing phone tag, or feeling limited to email.
We are here for you, with one-on-one opportunities to solve problems and continue the learning process. From accountability check-ins to regular business planning meetings, our focus is on helping agents continue to develop their careers year over year so that they can keep hitting their goals. As a Baird & Warner broker, you can rest assured that you’ll always get the information, resources, or training you need, when you need them, at every stage of your career.
At Baird & Warner, Managers are handpicked from our ranks of experienced, high-performing agents — so they truly understand what brokers need in our ever-changing market. And, since our Managing Brokers don’t sell, they’re focused entirely on using their expertise and training to coach agents and help them elevate their businesses. That means equipping each and every broker in the office with the tools, information, and education they need to feel confident in all aspects of launching and maintaining a sustainable and lucrative real estate business.
When you’re new to real estate, we’ll help you accelerate your success with ongoing, personalized mentoring and coaching with the management team. Part of this consists of weekly small group training sessions that dive deep into timely, relevant topics designed to make you more efficient in the current marketplace. From learning more about how to leverage the MLS and our proprietary marketing services with Diana and Sales Support Specialist Jon Gould, to focusing on the individualized strategies you can use to drive your business with Negeen, to finalizing and implementing your business plan with me, we focus on giving new brokers the tools, resources and tactics necessary to drive results quickly.
And experienced agents know that the world of real estate is constantly evolving, whether it’s a new regulation or shifting market trends. It is our responsibility as a brokerage and as individual agents to stay on top of it all. Each month, Baird & Warner Lincoln Park comes together at office-wide sales meetings to learn, share and discuss the latest market opportunities so that our brokers are always in the know, and can share that timely information to better serve their clients. In addition, each week we facilitate discussions and training classes that feature guest speakers who are experts in their fields such as real estate law, mortgage, and social media marketing.
And because our brokers are some of the most productive in the city, we know how important a strong support team is for keeping the flow of business moving. In addition to our dedicated management team, our office-level support staff includes multiple full-time administrators who are available to assist with listing management, marketing production, closing logistics, and much more. With skilled support staff helping to handle day-to-day essential operations, our agents get more freedom to focus on generating leads and pursuing the opportunities that interest them most.
