Before a career in real estate, Laura Lindgren worked in interior design and led a visual merchandising team in charge of creating displays along the Magnificent Mile and in shops on Oak Street. “I am able to bring an exceptional eye for design to each transaction with my clients,” Lindgren explains. “This helps them visualize the possibilities of each space, whether they are buying or selling.”
A real estate broker with Baird & Warner Gold Coast, Lindgren dipped her toes into real estate by managing apartment buildings for an attorney who owned several units. “I enjoyed exploring all the beautiful buildings and homes this city has to offer while helping people find a place to live,” she recalls. The Chicago native continues to experience that same feeling about the industry. Known for her professionalism and ethic of hard work, she still tries to bring some fun into the mix. “I am always extremely prepared and do as much research as possible for my clients,” she insists. “I listen carefully and share my extensive knowledge of the city whenever necessary.”
Covering the city of Chicago and surrounding suburbs, she deals with single-family homes, condos and commercial properties, counting first-time homeowners and luxury buyers among her clients. With 99.9% of her business from referrals and repeat customers, Lindgren was named to Baird & Warner’s Presidents Club in 2020 and 2021. She also won Homesnap’s Top Agent Award in 2020 and 2021. “My success in real estate is due to the fact that I love what I do,” she shares. “It just never really feels like a job.”
When not working, Lindgren volunteers with Baird & Warner’s Good Will Network and regularly supports her local animal shelter. A history and art enthusiast, she enjoys creating paper sculptures as a hobby. She is also a professional Christmas decorator for commercial and residential spaces during the holidays.
