Baird & Warner
Real Estate Broker
Hello! My name is Connie Barhorst and I am a licensed Real Estate Broker with Baird & Warner in Libertyville, Illinois. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have four children and live in Prairie Crossing, an environmental community, in Grayslake, Illinois with our three Golden Retrievers. I love to hike, practice yoga & pilates, bake and decorate my home in my free time. My background is in Sales, Retail Management and Human Resources. It has always been very important to me to provide the very best customer service and experience to my clients.
I have very high standards of service and I love to give that experience to my clients. I have a strong background in sales and marketing, particularly social media marketing. I love to showcase properties with the assistance of video, live posts and other social media outlets. Most homes are sold via the internet today and I ensure the pictures and images we present are perfect!
My love and passion for helping people pairs well with my interests in home design, decor and furnishing. Helping a client get their home ready to present to the market or helping a buyer find their “perfect fit” is something that I truly enjoy.
I have a strong network of contacts, from real estate attorneys, financial and mortgage services to contractors and tradespeople to help you should you need their services. I have often been told I should start “Connie’s List” as I very much enjoy helping others by sharing great service providers!
