Westar Properties, Inc. is an Oak Brook, Illinois-based real estate auction firm that specializes in the sale of quality residential, commercial and industrial properties. Westar Properties represents a multitude of clients, including developers, builders, banks, corporations, insurance companies, real estate investments trusts and private parties.
Steven H. Baumann, a 28-year veteran of the real estate auction
industry and former Vice President of Sheldon Good & Company, is President, CEO and Founder of Westar Properties, and
heads an impressive staff of experienced and highly skilled real estate auction
professionals. Dubbed "House Hustler" by Crain's Chicago Business magazine,
Mr. Baumann has been involved in the sale of several hundred million dollars in sales of real
estate, including residential, commercial, office, retail, industrial
and vacant land sites located in 22 states.
The basic premise of the firm's corporate philosophy is
derived from its primary objective to enable buyers
and sellers to interact more easily and on a more cost-effective
basis while providing the finest service and expertise
available in the industry. As a result, the firm has achieved
numerous sales in the real estate marketplace that would
have otherwise been improbable.
In an effort to exceed "conventional" real estate
auction advertising results, the firm utilizes the finest
available designers to streamline the firm's auction display
ads and brochures creating what many now view as the industry
standard. To facilitate the highest possible involvement
of prospective purchasers with the auction process, an easy-to-use
website and comprehensive Bidder's Package has been created.
For maximum recognition and impact, the firm's auction signage
has been strategically, and tastefully, designed. In addition,
a leading benchmark in the industry has been established for
cooperation with the local brokerage communities in regard
to both referral fees and traditional real estate auction
cooperating broker practices.
