Baird & Warner To Open New Office in Chicago’s South Loop

Laura Ellis

 CHICAGO, IL — Baird & Warner, Chicagoland’s largest, locally owned, independent residential real estate services company, announced it has signed a lease for a new office located in the Transportation Building at 620 S. Dearborn St., which will be focused on providing brokerage, mortgage and title services primarily to the South Loop and its surrounding neighborhoods.

The new office builds upon the company’s exponential growth, marking its 28th location in the Chicago area and following two record-breaking years in revenues, including $7.2 billion in sales and 27,500 transactions in 2015.

“Baird & Warner has always been active in the South Loop, but with major developments like RiverLine and a massive 62-acre development bringing thousands of new residential units to the community, we’ll be well-positioned to leverage opportunities in this flourishing neighborhood,” said Laura Ellis, president of residential sales and the executive vice president of Baird & Warner.

“Our company has experienced record-breaking revenues for the past two years, and our expansion in the South Loop will build upon that success.”

The South Loop office is slated for occupancy at the end of the year. Like all of Baird & Warner’s offices, it will reflect the company’s one-to-one ratio, having a dedicated, noncompeting manager overseeing a single office.

Managing broker for the new location will be Jim Psyhogios, a real estate veteran and South Loop resident who has spent the last 20 of his 25 years in the industry providing brokerage services exclusively to the South Loop neighborhood. In fact, Psyhogios joined Baird & Warner earlier this year specifically to launch and manage the South Loop office.

“To have someone of Jim’s caliber leading our South Loop team speaks volumes about the success we envision for this new office,” said Ellis. “His knowledge and understanding of the neighborhood will be beneficial to everyone who walks in our door — whether they are a buyer, seller or an agent looking to join our family.”

“I’ve always been a champion of the South Loop as being one of most dynamic neighborhoods in Chicago, so I’m beyond excited to bring the best marketing and technology tools available to Baird & Warner’s broker associates, enabling them to make it easier for sellers and buyers to tap the neighborhood’s full potential,” said Psyhogios.
