Born, bred and educated on Chicago's North Shore, John Baylor knows his work area more intimately than most. He has also parlayed his financial acumen from his many years as a successful trader at the Chicago Board of Trade for the benefit of all his clients. His considerable knowledge and insight of the real estate industry has been accumulated over the past fifteen years buying and selling on the greater North Shore. In that time, John has sold more than $350,000,000 worth of homes, ranging from one-bedroom condominiums to mansions on the lake front. Geographically, he has bought and sold from Chicago to Lake Forest and from the lake to Long Grove.
John's business formula is relatively straight forward: his clients' needs are of paramount importance and their schedules determine his own. He is dedicated, driven, determined and loves what he does, day-in and day-out. His customer base is broad and varied and John thrives on the many referrals he receives. His experience breeds success and his clients continually enjoy his unsurpassed results. He would have it be no other way.
In fact, John is so confident of the round-the-clock service he provides, that he gives clients a written guarantee that they may cancel their arrangement at a moment's notice if they are not completely satisfied with the job that is being done for them. Few, if any, other realtors offer this unconditional "warranty".
John has been a proven "top producer" year after year and not only enjoys the accolades of his many clients, but the approbations of his fellow agents from across the real estate spectrum. He strives daily to incubate his clients' trust, sense of well-being and confidence that their needs are not being met, but exceeded.
John is a Princeton graduate and received his Masters of Management from Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Business. He is also the recipient of the Bronze Star, Meritorious Valor, Vietnam. He resides with his wife in Northfield and their three adult children all live in the immediate Chicago area.
Clients are saying:
"John Baylor is as good as it gets in the real estate industry."
"I am so pleased with my new home! I am appreciative for the help, guidance, feedback, and most of all, patience, that I experienced from both John and Pam Baylor. As a first time home-buyer, I found the process to be well explained and I was well supported throughout. I would not hesitate to recommend to a friend or family member as my experience was superb. Thanks again! :)"
"This is the 2nd time I've retained John as my broker; the first time was when I purchased my current residence. John impressed me with how skillfully he negotiated a purchase price for me, and his performance this time, when I was the seller, was equally good. It took us approximately 4 days to sell my property. I would use John again in a minute, and would definitely recommend him to anyone I know that was looking to buy or sell a property."
"This is the 3rd time that my wife and I have used John and his team for our real estate needs and we would not look anywhere else. John did a great job listening to our needs and finding the perfect place to call home. In a time where everyone and their cousin are becoming real estate agents, John's industry knowledge puts him ahead of the pack. As a buyer or seller, you want an agent who will treat the transaction like it's their own- and that is what you will get with John Baylor & Co.!"
"John Baylor did such a phenomenal job helping us purchase our first home! He and his wife, Pam Baylor, explained everything to us every step of the way and made sure we were getting the best price possible. We knew we were in excellent hands and trusted them completely - it is refreshing to know that someone is looking out for your best interest at all times. We are so thrilled with the entire process and can't believe we can now call ourselves homeowners!"
