Catherine Dugan LaBelle Real Estate Team

Professional Vision Statement:

Provide exceptional customer service and professional integrity to my Buyer/Seller clients through my affiliation with Baird & Warner. Utilize a high tech and consultative approach to the pricing, preparation and promotion of properties including consistent and informative market transaction communications.  Committed to ongoing personal and professional development, as well as an alignment with a trusted community of Strategic Alliance Partners in order to provide exceptional service to my clients. 

As a broker for Baird & Warner, Catherine Dugan LaBelle ranks in the top 2 percent of the brokerage’s 2800 agents. She has achieved this by concentrating her efforts on helping her buyer and seller clients achieve their goals. “For me, real estate is more than listing and selling properties and earning a commission,” says LaBelle, a member of Baird & Warner’s Founders’ Club. “Real estate to me is participating in what is central to being an American. It allows me to be an entrepreneur and provide a special service to others as an advocate for their investment in the American Dream of homeownership.”

Having obtained her license in 2004, LaBelle has relied heavily on tenacity and deep desire to continually grow personally and professionally, which sustained her over the ever-changing landscape of the real estate industry over the last 14 years. Along the way, LaBelle has acquired numerous industry designations — CNE, CRS, GRI, LRS, SRES, SFR — all of which help her better serve her clients. In 2010, LaBelle became one of only 12 Realtors to attend the Illinois Association of Realtors Leadership Academy.

With a business focused in the western suburbs of Chicagoland primarily along the BNSF train line, LaBelle serves first-time homebuyers to seniors, investors to distressed property owners, luxury to relocation clients. She especially enjoys when she is able to serve family and friends. One only needs to look to her client testimonials — with statements of professionalism, market knowledge and responsiveness — to see why she is a 5 Star Zillow Premier Agent. LaBelle has also been a top agent in the La Grange Baird & Warner office five of the past six years.

Community service is also very important to LaBelle. She has served as a board member for the Mainstreet Organization of Realtors and for the West Suburban Chamber of Commerce, as well as a member of the LaGrange Business Association and vice president of recruitment for the Tri-Delta Women’s Fraternity South Suburban Chicagoland Alumnae Chapter. She also sits on the Community Support Services Resource Committee.

“My belief is the one should always be giving back,” she says, adding that she donates a portion of each commission check to the Baird & Warner Good Will Network.

“We are either growing or dying, and I choose to grow!” LaBelle affirms.

"Catherine was incredibly helpful with the sale of our home in Westchester, which included marketing materials, preparing the home with a deep cleaning service, styling set up advice from a professional designer, movers, as well as a last minute garbage collection. She had a contract on the home before we knew it. Catherine and B&W are wonderful partners to get your home sold. She is knowledgeable, accessible, and a delight to work with. We highly recommend Catherine Dugan LaBelle and Baird & Warner."

"Catherine helped us negotiate through several issues that had the potential to kill the house purchase. She helped lineup several inspectors and even made herself available to accompany them while my wife and I were at work. Her support through the process was great, which helped make the process more enjoyable. Thank you Catherine!"

"Catherine listed our condo in LaGrange and we had a contract within a week. She is so knowledgeable of the market and priced the condo right where it needed to be. She made the process for us very easy, particularly because we live out of state. I would highly recommend Catherine for your real estate needs."

"Catherine did an outstanding job finding and successfully closing our new home in Elmhurst. It is a new construction home so there were a lot of details that she had to deal with for us. She was very helpful with putting together a punch list, arranging inspections, working with our attorney and the seller/builder to get everything done before closing."

"Catherine was very helpful in working with me to analyze my property for sale. Her access to research on condominiums in the area was key in setting the asking price.

Professionally taken pictures of the unit while furnished and presenting them in a professional manner in the unit literature and posting was helpful in generating interest among buyers.
After listing the property, she was very responsive in keeping me up to date on progress and showings.

Catherine helped tie up loose ends as closing approached. All in all, my relationship with Catherine was very professional and I would recommend her services."
