Things are Moving...

The following is a sampling of the North Side Chicago market year-to-date 2006, as I see it:

Since the beginning of the year my 1541 W. Roscoe Penthouse sold and closed for $540,000; My 2327 W. Medill Penthouse listed at $599,900 went under contract for near list price and just closed. 230 E. Ontario #303, an investment condo downtown, is being negotiated as of this writing.

1015 W. Barry is an awesome property in the heart of Lakeview--perfect for a small family or artistic couple. Its a Single Family House listed at $624,900 open Sundays from Noon til 3:00PM. A Virtual Tour (VT) for it and all my listings can be viewed at

My 670 W. Irving Park in the landmark Pattington has been off the market since Christmas but will be coming back on in February. It is listed at $359,900 and is gorgeous. See VT.

On the buy side I closed 1133 W. Cornelia in Wrigleyville for $500,000--$25,000 under list price, and represented a client with an offer on a Gold Coast investment unit at 1212 N. Lasalle. This past week I negotiated a contract on a $450,000 Loft in Wicker Park for the fellow I send my mortgage business to.

I will be marketing a New Construction Single Family House on an oversized lot for 1.4 million in early March in the Lincoln Square area and I just listed a West Loop Loft with skyline views at 1200 W. Monroe priced at $399,900. Weekends from 1-4 I host Open Houses at 1835 N. Wolcott, a Single Family House in Bucktown listed at 1,499,000 as well as my 1015 Barry House in Lake view.

Please call or e-mail me anytime, I return all calls and messages promptly. Check out our website at where the Chicago MLS is at your fingertips. Also check out for comparable closed properties in the Lincoln Park and Lakeview neighborhoods. Its a great place for info.
