Baird & Warner said it purchased Century 21 Kreuser & Seiler Ltd., located in downtown Libertyville.
With 40 full-time agents and leading corporate relocation services, the new office complements Baird & Warner's existing Libertyville presence, further expanding the brokerage's services across the region.
Founded by MJ Seiler and Sue Carey, Century 21 Kreuser & Seiler has served the Libertyville, Gurnee, and Grayslake areas since 1974. Seiler will bring his 37 years of experience to assist with training and management, while Carey -- a 20-year relocation industry veteran -- will lead five full-time corporate relocation professionals who will join Baird & Warner's Leading Real Estate Companies of the World-backed team.
Managing broker of the new location, Baird & Warner's twenty-ninth, will be Steve Lawrence, who also manages their existing Libertyville office, and Christine Bong will work with him as assistant manager. Backed by Baird & Warner, Carey expects to dominate Chicagoland's corporate relocation market. "Baird & Warner brings unparalleled resources to the table," Seiler said. "With the power of their marketing tools, we can provide clients service at a level no other brokerage in our area can match."
"Kreuser & Seiler's record of professionalism and dedication to their clients make for an exciting partnership," said Steve Baird, president and CEO of Baird & Warner, Chicagoland's largest locally owned independent residential real estate services company. "Together, I look forward to provide our buyers and sellers a truly outstanding real estate experience, and make it easier for them to reach their goals."
"This partnership is by far the best choice both for our clients and our agents," said Laura Ellis, president of residential sales. "Kreuser & Seiler has a powerhouse relocation team, and agents with deep knowledge of their market. Now, they'll have Baird & Warner's award-winning marketing and expanded Chicagoland reach to become even more successful."
