Since 2002, Dick Barr, has been deeply involved in Chicago area real estate as an agent, developer, broker, manager and investor involved in thousands of transactions. Prior to that, Mr. Barr specialized in computers and technology. Mr. Barr has since merged the two fields of his expertise to create more streamlined processes to quickly identify economic opportunities in Real Estate, enabling him to pull the trigger on Real Estate investments that make sense in a high volume and expeditious manner.

Mr. Barr serves on the North Shore Barrington Association of REALTORS'®, Government and Political Issues Committee.  The committee focuses on establishing and maintaining relationships with government officials and candidates for office who reflect the Real Property Owner point of view with respect to the relationship between Government and Real Estate. 

In 2010, as a result of Mr. Barr's philanthropic work targeted against illegal drug use, through a special arrangement with the Chicago Field office of the Drug Enforcement Administration, Mr. Barr was selected to participate in the "DEA Civilian Academy." 

Through the DEA's Civilian Academy, Mr. Barr learned about the tough work and vital mission in the fight against illegal drugs – his specific interest in its local effect on the streets and neighborhoods of Chicago. 

In 2014 Mr. Barr left his traditional brokerage to start his own office: The Dick Barr Group, Real Estate Consultants, where Dick will use a more consultative approach to serving his clients. 

In 2012, Mr. Barr was featured on the HGTV network's international hit television show, "House Hunters." He lives in the Northern Suburbs of Chicago with his wife and 4 kids.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Warrenville, IL.
      My experience with Dick Barr was incredible.

      When I started looking for a home I decided to go it my own as I've always believed in my own abilities. Realizing the work involved, I decided maybe it would be best to go with someone. I came across several agents that were "Yes Men (and women)" Everything about the house was beautiful, everything was perfect for me, and I could feel the urge to decide right then and there.

      A friend of mine pointed me to the sight zillow.com On the side I saw a bunch of reviews and one was of Dick Barr. The reviews were just honest and kind. People he hadn't even closed on homes with and he maintained a kind relationship with. I sent him a message and the next day he was setting up a meeting to sit down and talk.

      When we sat down he gave me a lot of information and really worked on laying a foundation of getting to know me and what my expectations were. We connected on a lot of things and he was very personable. I'm pretty cautious and I felt very at ease working with him. He expressed that this process is the greatest moment for most people, that first house for our family, and stressed how important it was that he was here to facilitate that experience.

      After that, my girlfriend and I had no reservations about him, personable, easy going, and insightful, and he even keyed in on a lot of things about us that I didn't really notice.

      Through the whole process he talked with us, gave us tips, and guided us into this unknown process explaining all the obstacles we may and will encounter. We went into houses and he was honest, he found defects, he knew a lot about building codes, and he taught me a lot of what is within reasonable expectation for my abilities as far as fixing goes (I'm one of those guys that tends to bite off more than I can chew), and he was honest when he saw things that he just didn't think was right for us.

      After several houses, we came across one that was perfect for us. He was there for the home inspections, pest inspections, talked to us, and just really eased us through the process.

      We wanted the house in March, closed in May and it is mid June and we're pretty much all settled. He's an incredible guy to have on your side, he knows his job well and he's very accurate with his estimations and expectations, great foresight into potential issues and everything. I cannot recommend him highly enough, and to you Dick, I wish only the best for you. From my family to yours, thank you. You were instrumental in helping us get here.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $600K in Highland Park, IL.
      We were referred to Dick through an online service. We eventually came to understand how very fortunate we were to have him as our agent. Even though we told Dick we were ten months from a purchase he responded immediately to our requests for information. He didn't bat an eye when in the course of time our search went from condos, to single family homes, to townhouses. For seven months Dick continued to feed us properties which met our requirements. When we flew into Chicago from Oklahoma he met us at the airport and successfully guided us to our new home. He is a professional who keeps his eye on customer service... Even after the sale closed he's stayed in touch. If we ever sell and buy again he will be our agent. And, we've strongly recommended Dick to our daughter and son in law who are in the beginning stages of their search for a new home.  MoreLess
