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 Other home in 2014 in Albany Park, Chicago, IL.
      Dick took the time to ask the important questions and research properties, showing us only properties that fit our needs and price range. Dick was very helpful throughout the purchase process.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in West Rogers Park, Chicago, IL.
      The first time I met Dick he made a self-depreciating joke about his name. He said, "most people call me Dick, even before I tell them my name." That couldn't be further from the truth. Dick answered his phone every time we called, and if he missed the call he called back immediately. There were times I felt bad for bothering him so much at what I'm sure were inopportune times but he always made us feel welcomed every time. Dick is a very passive agent. There was never a sales pitch, and there was definitely never any pressure. Most times it felt like we were his only client with how much time and attention he paid to us.  MoreLess

      Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $275K in Glenview, IL.
      It’s so funny I got your review request today Dick. Last week, we were in Florida in our hotel room and Lorraine starts yelling for me to come look at the TV. It was you on House Hunters. Congratulations on that!

      If anyone is reading this, it means you’re looking in the right direction. Dick is just so far above any real estate agent we’ve ever worked with before. He’s professional, respectful, knowledgable, cordial, fun, exciting, diligent, hard working, etc. etc. etc.

      I don’t think you will ever meet another agent quite like him. He’s like family to us now. He really cared about what we wanted. He was never afraid to back down on his negotiations. He told us outright, Never be afraid to walk away from a deal to get what you want, even if it meant another 2 months of looking. And he knew exactly when to call their bluff. It’s like he has a 6th sense about the psychology of real estate.

      When we first met he asked us a bunch of questions that he said helped him be able to see houses through our eyes. At first we thought it was silly but we played along, but honestly, when we were done, I was a believer!!! I learned more about what I wanted than I even knew before meeting him.

      You’re a real mensch Dick. Good luck!
