April Baker of The Gillian Baker Team at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago Sells Record Single Family Home in Forest Park, Illinois


1656708240OAK PARK, IL USA – John Lawrence, managing broker of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago’s Oak Park, River Forest and Elmhurst offices, is pleased to announce that broker April Baker of The Gillian Baker Team represented the buyers in the purchase of the single family residence at 439 Thomas in Forest Park for $830,000 which is a historical record for the community. The sale of the 3,600 sq ft, 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath residence closed on June 22, 2022.

Lawrence said, “I congratulate April on this very special sale. She was one of the original developers of the residence in 2018-2019 and the home won a Forest Park Pride Award at that time. When it sold in 2019, it was the highest priced single family home sale ever in Forest Park and that holds true today.”

Baker said, “I am very proud of 439 Thomas. The way everything came together - my intimate knowledge of the home, it meeting my out of state client’s description of what they were looking for to a T, the seller not having the home on the market but deciding to move out of state earlier in the same day I reached out to him, the lifelong best friend of one of my buyers living just down the street – it was all just meant to be. And I am so excited to have found the home’s newest caretakers.”

Presented by the Forest Park Chamber of Commerce, Forest Park Pride Awards are awards to homeowners and developers whose care for their properties brings up the value of every property in town.
