Today marks Baird and Warner’s 155th year in business. Our real estate brokerage started on March 28, 1855 when Lucius Duncan Olmsted loaned $5,000 to Edward Casey & Brothers, taking security mortgages on property along Washington Street between Franklin and Market.
Since then BairdÂ and WarnerÂ survived the Great Chicago Fire and the Great Depression, and helped to build such Chicago landmarks as Union Station and the “L”.Â On the cusp of Fair Housing Month, it’s also pertinent to note that Baird and Warner was instrumental in the fight for Equal Opportunity Housing.
