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.

"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."

"He has passion in real estate, architecture, and design.
It was our pleasure having him as our realtor. We sold / bought a house successfully.
His response is fast, and very honest.
Even though we made several mistakes, he was patient and helpful.

He was cheering and motivating us while we were struggling with obstacles. We highly recommend him!"

"My wife and I had not been involved in any type of real estate transaction in over 20 years so when it came time to sell my parents home we not only had the stress of not being familiar with the "process" involved in selling a home but for me, the emotional stress of selling my parents home, the home I grew up in; in stepped Lou Zucaro. Lou was extremely patient and informative throughout the process, when we were faced with a few "challenges" during the closing Lou thoroughly explained the options and helped us overcome the challenge. An example was having to address the issue of radon. Never in my life have I had to deal with radon, Lou helped my wife and I through the remediation process, providing recommendations for companies, and helping accelerate the remediation so that we could complete the closing as scheduled. I can't imagine having gone through the sale of my parents home without Lou's help. If ever my wife and I need a Realtor, there is no needing to decide who to choose, it will be Lou Zucaro."

"Lou was an absolute pleasure to work with. I rarely write reviews and if I do, I typically won't offer the full rating as there is often room for improvement. However, Lou is deserving of every star in each category. With our search for our dream home, he offered sound advice, understood what we were looking for and knew where we could find it.

One year after our closing we are still in touch with Lou and he feels like a good friend to us."
