Chicago's Baird & Warner took home eight awards at the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World ® Annual Symposium. The region's biggest independent residential real estate services company took top honors for Best Visual Design of a website and Best Overall Website, from among 565 independent brokerages around the world vying for the awards.
The top Chicago brokerage also carried away two first place awards, one in Luxury Marketing for its newly designed luxury seller guide, yard signs, and agent print ads, and one in the Company Brand and Property Advertising category for it’s “We Get You” consumer ad campaign.
Third place finishes for Baird & Warner in the Brand Builder category for marketing materials, and for Business Cards, Letterhead, and Speciality Marketing for the design of its new business cards rounded out the company's wins.
One of our editors, Phil Butler laid out the leadership of Baird & Warner some years back. Chicago Metro Area Real Estate carried this report as well. Back in 2011, Butler had this to say about the Chicago brokerage:
Baird & Warner is clearly the most respected, most visible, and after a bit of scrutiny on my part – most digitally aware of Chicago’s real estate companies.
ActiveRain also reported on the company's digital prowess, which has clearly been taken to the next level over the past 8 years. It's indicative for us at RealtyBiz, that B&W now has 11,914 Facebook fans since FB fans from 2011 put the company in the lead with just over 1,400. Digitally speaking, the company founded by Lucious Olmsted and Lyman Baird took the lead in digital and never looked back.
Baird & Warner was named the Chicago Tribune’s No. 1 Top Workplace in Chicagoland real estate in 2018 for the seventh year in a row. With nearly 2,500 broker associates in 30 offices and comprehensive mortgage, title, and relocation services, Baird & Warner ranks among the nation’s top real estate firms.
