First Time Home buyer tax credit and credit for repeat buyers. You snooze you lose says Lincolnshire realtor! $8000 First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit Extended and even expanded for Repeat Buyers! . As a full time realtor in the LIncolnshire/ Long Grove area, I feel that if you don't start now - looking for  a home or putting a home on the market, you will not be able to take advantage of this first time home buyer's credit.

  One of the charities that I feel passionate about is  Cured (Campaign Urging Research for Eosinophilic Disease). This organization was started by a parent of a Stevenson High School student who currently has the disease.     Eosinophilic enteropathy is a complicated digestive system disorder in which white blood cells are found in abnormal amounts, creating and autoimmune disorder in which the child cannot consume food without his or her body attacking itself.  Take the time to watch this amazing video and you will learn more about the disease.   If you have any unwanted gold, silver or platinum jewelry, come to Flatlanders in Lincolnshire and receive cash in exchange for your jewelry!  10% of the cash given out will be donated to Cured!  When:  Wednesday Nov. 18th between 6:30-10 Whe...

  Have you ever heard of University Ave (formerly called Campus Threads) located  in Lincolnshire,Illinois.     If you haven’t heard about this fabulous place, you are missing out on one of my favorite stores!    University ave is located in the City Park retail center and sells both Collegiate clothing and accessories.     I love this store for many reasons…The owners as well as the rest of the employees are always extremely helpful, the clothing is great quality, and  the merchandise is liked by everyone so they make great birthday, holiday and graduation  presents.    The store’s  new promotional tote  is great for  its customers as well as the environment. If you spend over 50 dollars, the customer receives a recyclable bag.  Every time you bring  in the recyclable bag, you will ge...

Recently I wrote a blog post about the future happenings in Lincolnshire Illinois highlighting the bands playing at the Concert in the Green.  I noted that one of my neighbors, Karen Kiley and her band  The Retro Rockets were going to perform on July 31st.  Let me tell you,  it's one thing to write about an event in town... but its much more fun to attend it! Many of our neighbors attended the concert to listen to Karen's band, the Retro Rockets  and get together to have a wonderful summer evening.    The Retro Rockets play rock n' roll music from the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's.    The band was unbelievable, the company was great and all in all it was a fantastic evening.   Flatlander's a restaurant attached to the concert venue provided food and drinks at a reasonable cost.  This was th...

Abundance of homes????  Not for my client!One of my clients is looking for a villa in the Rivershire maintenance free neighbor located in Lincolnshire, Illinois.  They would prefer a ranch or a home with a master on the first floor.    If you are a realtor reading this blog, and you know of someone planning to sell- please let me know.  If you are a resident of the Rivershire neighborhood located in Lincolnshire and are planning to sell in the near future,  please also contact me.  Today is January 2nd and  I have had 3 calls for buyers asking me to look  for a particular dream home.   In all my years in real estate- I have never been so busy the first week in January.  What does this mean?  Let's just say that my motto is that real estate will be great in 2008!!If you are looking to bu...
