Steve Baird, president and CEO of Baird and Warner Real Estate, has been named for the third straight year to Inman News' 100 Most Influential Leaders in Real Estate. Compiled annually, the list reflects those power brokers, experts, insiders and visionaries who influence real estate.
The list covers a broad group of individuals both directly and indirectly involved in real estate, including, brokers, government officials, journalists, consultants, and those in the financial services sector. Steve is the only representative on the list from the Chicago Metropolitan area.
As an agent for Baird & Warner's Winnetka office, I am very proud that Steve Baird's influence on real estate has resounded beyond Chicago. This multi-generationally owned family business has been involved in Chicago real estate for 150 years and has 23 offices throughout the area. His vision, understanding of real estate and development of the highest ranked real estate site in the Chicagoland area have resulted in propelling the firm to surpass its goals.
According to Inman, their top 100 are people who "embody leadership, innovation, ingenuity, power and persistence." Exactly what we need as realtors!
