As a residential real estate broker at Baird & Warner’s Lincoln Park office, Fred, a Chicago native, serves private sellers and investors in the city and suburbs. Known for her loyalty, integrity and industry knowledge, Fred strives to create working relationships founded on mutual trust and openness. “I want my clients to feel comfortable asking questions and to know they are getting an honest response,” she says.
Prior to becoming a broker in 2007, Fred worked at Budget Rent a Car as the advertising/sales/promotions manager for the international division, and to this day, she continues to apply the marketing skills she developed there to bring additional value to every client.

This year, Fred beat established commercial brokers in a listing presentation competition regardless of having no experience in commercial real estate. “The sellers told me that they were holding my presentation as the ‘standard’ for all the other brokers,” says Fred.
