Baird & Warner Lake Forest Names New Managing Broker 
Top Producer Brings Knowledge and Expertise to Lead Sales Team

Chicago, IL — Feb. 12, 2016 — Baird & Warner has appointed Laura Henderson as managing broker of the company’s Lake Forest sales office. In her new role, Henderson will work to expand the office’s market share in the North Shore, as well as oversee the sales team and daily operations of the office.

“Our Lake Forest office has served the community for more than 50 years, so we wanted to find someone with the experience and knowledge to lead this team,” said Laura Ellis, president of residential sales and executive vice president of Baird & Warner, Chicagoland's largest, locally owned, independent residential real estate services company. “Laura’s inspiring leadership and professional commitment will no doubt empower our broker associates to reach new heights.”

Henderson is a long-time Lake Forest resident with more than 40 years of experience in the local market as a top producer and a key force in developing high-end properties within the community. She was instrumental in helping to establish Renaissance Realty Partners, which Baird & Warner acquired in 2007, and has been with Baird & Warner ever since.

“I am so excited for this opportunity,” said Henderson, who mentioned that she joined Baird & Warner because of “the depth of commitment in a family-owned firm, and the sense that ... I could make a serious contribution toward growing the office.”
