About Celeste Barr

Chicago Magazine has recognized the Best Realtors in Chicago each year in the annual October Issue for the last 13 years. For the 13th year in a row, for 2023, I have been recognized as one of the best Realtors in Chicago (2011-2023). Out of over 43,000 Realtors in the Chicagoland area, roughly 700 Realtors (just 1%) are chosen by Chicago Magazine and less than 100 have been awarded this recognition for 13 years in a row.  I am a Five Star Award Winner for 2023.

If you're looking for a  Realtor that offers excellent service to their clients and if you're looking for an Accredited Buyer's Representative(ABR) and Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE), you can count on me to advocate for your best interests in every stage of your home transaction.

I love selling residential real estate! Early on I learned I love the tech side of this business too and the vast opportunities available for my clients using technology. I wanted to continue to grow my business through technology and education. Staying on the edge of the business has allowed me to service my clients with commitment and systems that support my message of service.

Whether we are touring a property or negotiating a sale, your goals will always be my priority. Real estate can be complicated and you want and need a calming presence you can rely on when you need advice.

My mission to you is to be “Raising the BARR on service and communication”!  My aim is to treat my clients like I would like to be treated; with respect and with a high level of communication.
