Bari is a recent addition to Dawn McKenna Groups Chicago Gold Coast office. Prior to jumping into real estate, Bari earned her bachelor’s degree from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, where she was also a member of the SMU NCAA Division 1 women’s soccer team. During her time as a collegiate athlete, she earned her way onto the American Athletic Conference Honors All-Academic Team for four consecutive years. Bari studied Strategic Brand Management in the Advertising school at SMU. Postgrad, she served as a Teach For America corps member at a KIPP elementary school in an underserved community in South-East Los Angeles before moving back to sweet home Chicago where she obtained her real estate license and joined the Dawn Mckenna Group.

Bari currently resides in Old Town on bustling Wells Street. Extremely knowledgeable about the different Chicago neighborhoods, Bari is a go-to local expert for clients looking to rent or buy in the city.
