Prior to beginning her real estate practice, Betsy Phillips spent 27 years working in her family's construction business, coordinating a wide variety of home projects including new construction, home remodeling, basement finishing, and additions. Living in various parts of the North Shore throughout her adult life, Betsy has rented, owned, and also invested in an array of real estate both in the city and suburbs of the Chicago area. “I wrapped my home in a giant bow every year for years, because I always believed that the best gift in life was in your home!” says Ms. Phillips. Currently, Betsy resides in Northbrook with her husband and two English Labs, and she has three grown children, two wonderful daughters-in-law, and one super special granddaughter. Ms. Phillips’ son, who is a commercial carpenter, and daughter, a commercial interior architect, continue to keep real estate in the family.
Betsy found Baird & Warner through her own personal experience with the company. Having spent most of her adult life involved in the market and industry, Betsy had utilized the organization in the past with unmatched ease, guided by a well-seasoned professional. This experience only solidified her desire to become a broker and has allowed her to hone her skill set, making Betsy a REALTOR who works tirelessly with the utmost integrity.
A graduate of Lake Forest College, majoring in American Studies with a specialization in the history and development of American cities, Betsy Phillips describes herself as a “Chicago Groupie,” loving all things Chicago: the sports teams, the varied restaurants from hole-in-the-wall to fine dining, the local flavors and history of the various neighborhoods and suburbs, the architecture, cultural entities, and most importantly, the people in our ever-evolving and changing communities.
In her spare time, Betsy loves to meditate, work out, travel, read motivational books and articles, and have lively conversations. Recently, she has begun training her dogs to be certified therapy dogs for a charitable organization, and she was the 2017 Volunteer of the Year for Aspiritech, an organization that provides employment and social opportunities for autistic adults. She is a member of the Executive Professional Women's Networking Group (EPWNG) as well as the chambers of commerce for Deerfield, Northbrook, Glenview, and Greater Wheeling, where she was recently named a chamber ambassador.
As a mother of three with a myriad of pets, Betsy knows firsthand what a growing family is looking for in terms of neighborhoods, communities, shopping, access to transportation, and the importance of making your space feel like home.
