Baird & Warner
Marlene Rubenstein and Dena Fox, mother-daughter duo of the Rubenstein Fox Team at Baird & Warner, truly are the yin-yang of brokers in today’s real estate industry. Their complementary skills blend seamlessly to provide their clientele with a comprehensive breadth and depth rarely found in the residential market. “Be they millennials or baby boomers, be they in the city or in the suburbs, our greatest strength is our generational collaboration and our ability to address the divergent needs of different age groups and different types of markets,” Fox says. Rubenstein’s tenure, tenacity and negotiating expertise coupled with Fox’s financial background, analytic acumen and keen pulse on the mindset of today’s buyers and sellers result in a unique blend of tools and talent that effectively meet the needs of new, repeat and prospective clients. This exceptional blend is the cornerstone of their business and the key to their success and growth.
As the No. 1 real estate team and relocation specialists for Baird & Warner and the best real estate team throughout the entire Chicagoland area in the 2016 Chicago Agent magazine Agents’ Choice Awards, success is something they never take for granted. Their steadfast dedication to both their clients and their profession as well as their conviction to retain their reputation as No. 1 agents motivate them to always be the best they can be in all facets of every transaction. With a sharp eye to detail as well as a view of the big picture, they are masters in managing their clients’ expectations throughout the entire process — from start to finish and everything in between. Of their many talents and tools, the pre-marketing plan they have created is particularly effective in giving their clients that ever-so-important edge in today’s highly competitive real estate market.
Unique to their business model is how they do business. The Rubenstein Fox Team values the relationships they have built over the years with clients and colleagues, agents and brokers, lenders and attorneys, contractors and vendors. They know that working with others — rather than against them — works in the best interest of those they serve and ultimately provides them with the best possible results.
Their growing team includes Laura Kerstein, Silvia Miner, Amanda Ptito and Marc Cornfield. Fox oversees business in the city with Ptito, while Rubenstein manages the suburban business with Kerstein and Miner. Cornfield bridges the investment gap between the two territories.
Their strong work ethic and their negotiation and technical skills, in collaboration with a multilingual offering (French, German and Spanish), create a resourceful, comprehensive and well-connected team that truly makes them a dynamic force in the industry.
