About Barbara Kohut

Barbara Kohut moved to the Oak Park area in 1976 and she’s been an active community member ever since. Her love of the surrounding neighborhoods drew her to real estate in 1991, and she has become an expert on residential properties in Oak Park, River Forest, Elmwood Park and Galewood.

Barbara is known for translating her clients’ wants and needs into successful transactions. She is dedicated to continuously improving her knowledge and skills so that she can exceed her clients’ expectations.

Barbara is a graduate of the Realtors® Institute and worked for a local Century 21 office (which became part of the Prudential Premier network) before joining Weichert, Realtors® – Nickel Group in 2007, which is now Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago. She recently joined forces with her REALTOR® son, Cory, to form Team Kohut. Together, Barbara and Cory provide double the expertise and seamless service to their buyers and sellers.

Before she became a real estate agent, Barbara earned a Masters degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Cincinnati. For eighteen years she owned and operated an in-home daycare center. During this time she developed close and lasting relationships with the families she served, and she has truly enjoyed watching the children she cared for grow into adulthood. Barbara has been delighted to help former students buy their first homes and assist their parents with selling when it was time to downsize.

In her free time, Barbara loves to read and travel, and she plans an annual trip with her sisters (preferably reconnecting and relaxing on a cruise ship). She also enjoys spending time with her two adult sons, both of whom returned to live in the Oak Park area after college.
