How about this landmine at the corner of Irving Park Rd and Clarendon in the Wrigleyville neighborhood of Chicago? Been there for a couple months now. A pot/man-hole disaster just waiting to happen. Cyclists, non-SUV drivers, and jaywalkers beware.

Printers Row Condo

























Just sold a 2 bed/2bath condo in the Printers Row neighborhood of Chicago.  The relatively new construction high-rise, as you can see, is a lock box friendly zone. In other words, the majority of listing agents/Realtors associated with this address are not present for their respective showings. I had the buyers in this transaction and was present at both showings as well as the home inspection. In fact, I attend every showing for my clients, whether buy-side or sale-side. I personally show each of my listed properties and only supply a lock box in case of emergency or extreme scheduling conflict and only with non-occupied/vacant properties. Nonetheless, its a funny visual. Also, the showing instructions on the Chicago MLS read "Key in Lockbox on Fence." Double LOL.

Uptown Chicago Relo?

Wilson & Magnolia Avenues, Chicago

























Not sure what the story is (was) with the Starbucks at Wilson & Magnolia in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago. Hopefully a Relocation is on the corporate menu. It was part of my morning coffee routine when showing properties in the area (and an ad hoc office/wireless hotspot on more than a few occasions).

Flashback Wrigleyville Storefront

'YESTERDAY'  at 1143 W Addison St, Chicago



















Anyone who has ever rolled down Addison St in the Wrigleyville neighborhood of Chicago has passed YESTERDAY,  the 100+ year old storefront pictured above.  Originally a barber shop then a TV repair store, YESTERDAY opened its doors as a comic and memorabilia business in 1976 and is still a neighborhood fixture 40 years later. "Where past meets present" says the sign above the front entrance. Totally.

Old School Chicago Shoe Repair




Tucked away in a basement storefront at the corner of Irving Park and Clarendon (on the Wrigleyville neighborhood | Uptown neighborhood cusp), Kell's is an old school Chicago shoe repair shop (keys & belts, too according to the signs). And...they did a great re-furb of the wife's Ferragamos (pictured above)
