Baird & Warner, the largest, locally owned, independent Chicago-area residential real estate services company, has announced that John Adamson, former managing broker and owner of Lakeshore Partners, has joined its Evanston office.
Laura Ellis, president of residential sales and executive vice president of Baird & Warner, says the Evanston office, is enjoying a strong growth period, with year-over-year sales volume up almost 76 percent and the number of transactions up 22 percent.
“John and his experienced team have an impeccable reputation and are known throughout the community for their integrity and trust, so we couldn’t be more proud to welcome them to the Baird & Warner family,” Ellis said in a statement.
A real estate veteran for more than 30 years, including 25 years at the helm of Lakeshore Partners, Adamson says his move to Baird & Warner was prompted by a desire to return to focusing on interacting with clients on a daily basis.
“I’ve long admired and respected how Baird & Warner agents conduct themselves and the services they provide their clients,” said Adamson. “The firm’s history, knowledge and size provides access to advanced business tools with an in-house marketing department and resources that are exceptional in our industry.”
With the addition of Lakeshore Partners team members, the Baird & Warner Evanston office now has grown to 60 agents.
