Stephen Baird

President and CEO
In addition to serving as president and CEO of the large Chicago-area brokerage Baird & Warner Real Estate, Stephen Baird also chairs the large broker network The Realty Alliance, which stirred things up in 2013 with a warning to multiple listing services to step back off broker toes with new services like public-facing websites. Baird, the fifth generation of Baird to run Baird & Warner, has testified before Congress on matters of interest to the real estate community, and worked on open-space preservation issues as past president of CorLands, The Openlands Project and, currently, as a national board member of the Trust for Public Land. A 1975 graduate of Harvard University, Baird earned his MBA from Northwestern University’s Kellogg Graduate School of Business Management in 1985.
