It’s hard to believe that what we know today as a great metropolis was once a small city with endless potential. When Baird & Warner founder Lyman Baird chose this area as his new home, Chicago was just 20 years old and had only 85,000 residents.

Throughout its long history — one that is closely tied to that of the entire Chicagoland area — Baird & Warner has continually reinvented itself in response to the ever-changing demands of the real estate industry.

From introducing the first home marketing campaign to creating one of the first real estate websites, this evolution has but one goal in mind: to serve our clients in the best way possible.


Baird & Warner is honored to have been named a Top Workplace by the Chicago Tribune for the 5th consecutive year and #1 in real estate. This incredible recognition is based on feedback from our broker associates and employees, making it especially meaningful. Together, we are a group of like-minded but different professionals working together to help homebuyers and sellers across Chicagoland achieve their real estate dreams.

Whether it’s through unparalleled customer service, the most cutting-edge technology, or simply open doors and open minds, we strive to empower those around us to work towards and be their very best.


Far beyond valued clients, the people of Chicagoland are our neighbors, and it is our duty to help our neighbors whenever we can.

The Baird & Warner Good Will Network was created in 2002 as a way to take this philanthropic spirit even further.

Through charitable contributions and ongoing volunteerism from our broker associates, loan officers and staff, we have donated thousands of volunteer hours and millions of dollars to a wide array of local nonprofit organizations with a focus on shelter and homelessness, particularly for women and children.

For a locally owned business led by one family through five generations and more than 160 years, supporting local communities is paramount. This deep sense of connection to the people and the neighborhoods we serve comes from a simple, yet powerful perspective: for Baird & Warner, Chicagoland is more than just a market—it’s home.
