One of Highland Park's greatest treasures is the Park District.  My family and friends get so much out of it, and I always make a point of telling clients to check out its offerings.  My oldest son just wrapped up his third season of Little Giants Travel Football, a wonderful program coordinated by the Highland Park Park District.  My youngest is just starting his first season of Travel Basketball.  These are two great programs through the Highland Park Park District, which is a great resource, value and social hub.  Throughout the years, we have reaped the benefits of the Highland Park Park District and Recreation Center.  There is wonderful programming for every age, from toddlers to seniors.  I've taken Tennis lessons at Deer Creek, as have my children, and my husband frequents the ...

I'm just getting my feet wet with this whole blog thing and thought I should take a moment to introduce myself.  I am an active real estate agent on Chicago's North Shore specializing in Highland Park IL, Glencoe, Deerfield, Northbrook, Highwood and surrounding areas. I reside in Highland Park IL with my husband, two sons and our big white dog.  Highland Park is absolutely gorgeous right now.  We had a great time decking out our house with spooky Halloween decorations and are looking forward to Thanksgiving.  The leaves have changed colors and are flying everywhere. How did we end up in Highland Park Illinois?  I actually lived in Highland Park IL when I was a kid and my husband grew up in the neighboring North Shore community of Deerfield.  We made the decision to leave a great town h...

In spite of the rain, the Earth Day Festival in Highland Park was well attended. Since the crowds were less then anticipated, they didn't need my assistance as a volunteer.  I took advantage of the time (no appointments with clients, no family commitments) to check out the festival myself.I learned about a new line of paints from Benjamin Moore - they are eco friendly, hypo allergenic, and they also cover better than the regular paints.I learned about a new solar energy program that will be coming the the North Shore (eventually - timing tbd).  The deal is that this company determines what type/size solar panel you need, and then they install it on your roof.  You pay monthly to rent it out.  Your electricity then comes primarily from the solar panel, and if you need any additional ener...

A simple analysis of MLS data shows that sales have picked up in Highland Park over the past three months versus the prior three months.   There were 121 single family homes that sold (Attorney Review/Inspection, Pending, or closed) during the past 6 months;  73 of those sales (over 60%) were from the past 3 months, or 24.3 homes per month.There are currently 360 single family homes for sale in Highland Park, as of close of business today.  So, on average that translates into between 14 and 15 months of inventory, if the sales rate for the past three months stays the same (360 divided by 24.3). If you look at this by price range, the picture is quite different.  For luxury homes (over $1.2 million) only 12 homes sold in the past three month, or 4 per month.  With 123 of these homes curr...

Well the snow is melting and we can actually see the sidewalks again on the "North Shore" of Chicago!  The Spring Market has already picked up in Illinois and I'm seeing actual Buyers ready to make a move!  It's an exciting time in our market...after the lull in action from August through December to see so much activity starting again.  I have taken several listings this week, and I'm seeing exciting new homes coming on the market with Sellers understanding that they have to price realistically to get it SOLD!  No more 20% appreciation per year on your home...back to the "norm" of 5-8%...which isn't so bad!! The rates are still low....the market is moving...don't wait for it to pass you by!
