Thanks for visiting my online home here at Baird & Warner. I’m a full-time Realtor licensed in Illinois, and an Award Winning, Top 10 agent with Baird & Warner.

My goal is to help every client get the most out of their real estate transaction. I know from experience that buying and selling your home can sometimes feel like equal parts exciting and scary, so I do my best to make sure your questions and concerns are addressed so that your home purchase or sale is as easy as possible.

As a 40+ year resident of the Chicago area who grew up in Barrington, I'm very familiar with not only this great town, but many of the surrounding areas as well. I'm extremely tech savvy and communicative, so you can be sure you're getting personal, responsive service from me, whether we're working together to buy or sell your home.

I'm very passionate about Mid-Century Modern and Organic Modern architecture, and I love ranch homes! For the last several years, I've run the Modern Illinois website (modernil.com) and I also serve on the Board of Directors for Chicago Bauhaus and Beyond. If you have a modern home or are looking to buy one, please contact me, as I'm knowledgeable about many of the great modernist architects who practiced in this area such as Don Erickson, Dennis Stevens, Dennis Blair, Edward Dart, James Dresser, James Speyer, Edward Humrich and many others.

I look forward to working with you to make you comfortable with the entire process of selling or buying your home.

"Lou was extremely helpful in our home search from the very beginning all the way up until the very end. This was our first time buying a home so we had a lot of questions. I work in an industry where you're often answering a lot of questions for people who don't understand your industry at all. Lou nailed it. He never once made us feel dumb or that we were being sold something we didn't want. Lou knew exactly what we wanted and helped us find it right within our budget + timeline."

"Lou was great through the entire process. Always available for questions. On day 1 we had 9 showings and 4 competitive offers at or above asking price. Lou was very reasonable during negotiations too. If there were things we wanted, he had our back. Was also not afraid to tell us if we (or buyer) were being too unreasonable. Lastly, the night before our walkthrough of the close, he came to our house and did his own walkthrough to make sure the house was in great shape - taking pride in what he sells. I came to greatly appreciate this when we bought our new house (different selling agent) and the sellers left a lot of junk, light switch covers with crayon written all over it, cracked light switch covers et al."

"Lou is a true professional and I really felt like he was my advocate throughout the whole process of finding and purchasing my new condo. He is an excellent communicator, and I always appreciated his honest input and advice. I was very happy with the way he negotiated the purchase price for my condo, and I have hired him again now to sell my old home."

"We first heard about Lou from a letter we received saying how much he loved our house and his association with the Modern Illinois organization. After reading his letter and learning more about his love for mid-century architecture, we knew when the time came to put our house on the market, Lou would be our broker. Well that time came and Lou became our listing agent in June 2017. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Lou on both the sell and buy and we cannot say enough good things about him. His innovative sales methods, amazing personality and professionalism throughout our entire journey made it an absolute joy. Lou kept us well informed and always made it a point to be at the showings to ensure the potential buyer and their agent knew the history of the home and the uniqueness of the property. In addition, Lou was always available for our questions and concerns throughout the process and when it came to close the deal his negotiation skills were exceptional. We would highly recommend Lou to anyone out there who needs a realtor no matter what type of home they are looking to buy or sell.

"We were very excited to move from the Seattle area to the Chicago area and were very determined to find a mid century home. My husband found Lou through some internet searches and I'm so glad he did. Lou went above and beyond what we expected. We found ourselves in Chicago for a last minute trip and contacted Lou to see if we could get some showings in with short notice. This was our first contact with him. He brought us to any house we asked and sent us some listings he had found. His knowledge of mid-century architecture was very helpful and I'm glad we had him in our corner. We found our dream house that week, made an offer (actually multiple offers as there was a bidding war!) and we were able to close in less than a month! Lou is always quick to respond and we couldn't have sealed this deal without him. I wouldn't hesitate to use him again (although I don't think I will need to for a long while!) and recommend him to friends."
