Breaking her personal record for sales volume, Becky Sexson has taken 2021 by storm. As a real estate broker at Baird & Warner’s Lincoln Park office and one of the city’s top producers, Sexson specializes in helping first-time and move-up buyers and sellers on the North and Northwest sides of the city, as well as in the northwestern suburbs. “I grew up in Elk Grove Village, so I’m very familiar with that market,” she explains, adding that she previously lived in Lakeview and Uptown before settling in Portage Park.
Placing an emphasis on education, Sexson started leading webinars for first-time homebuyers in 2020 and teaches all her clients everything they need to know to eliminate surprises, alleviate stress and make informed decisions.
Named Baird & Warner’s Rookie of the Year in 2017, Sexson has since been recognized as a top producer by the Chicago Association of Realtors, a member of Baird & Warner’s Founder’s Club and a Chicago Real Producers magazine Rising Star. This year, she received Homesnap’s Top 15% award and ranked among the top 10 agents in her office.
Prior to real estate, Sexson worked in marketing and community relations for the Chicago Bears, Chicago Blackhawks and Chicago Wolves before transitioning to a career in event planning and fundraising for Lurie Children’s Hospital. However, the allure of unlimited growth and the ability to be her own boss was too strong to resist: In 2016, after purchasing a condo and experiencing the real estate industry firsthand, she decided to make the jump. “Not only have my previous jobs been instrumental in teaching me how to stay organized and manage my time,” she recounts, “they’ve also expanded my network of clients.”
Sexson and her husband are active members of their church and together raise their 2-year-old daughter, Eliana.
