I was recently driving east along Winnetka Ave in Northfield near Happ Road and saw such a cute sight. A family of swans: parents and 8 signets walking along the parkway. I stopped to film them and realized they were going to attempt to cross the street - fairly busy at that point. I hopped out t...

How is the real estate market doing so far in 2018? How are prices doing?  Remember that every subdivision and town is responding differently if and 'when' a home in the area goes on the market. Sellers are now pretty happy with prices or have decided that now is a good time to move.  Maybe you a...

Instead of preparing just a 6-month real estate report on the first half of 2017 vs. 2018, I decided to throw in statistics from  2007 into the mix. I'm often asked if Winnetka has returned to its pre-recession home prices. My answer is always "No" but there are some interesting take-aways from t...
