Over the past decade, the community has rapidly expanded its acclaimed shopping and dining scene, attracting residents and tourists alike. Local shops have survived, thankfully, and co-exist with national big name retailers like Lululemon, Club Monaco and Joie. Restaurants are local and hip.
Bucktown real estate includes a diverse mix of older single-family homes, modern homes, new construction and converted industrial loft spaces. New construction flourished as Bucktown became boomtown through most of the 2000s. Most of the new condo developments and townhouses have a distinctly modern design, and new construction houses range from classic brick walk-ups to over the top estates priced at $4million +, a new price point for this neighborhood.
Bucktown’s trendsetter status makes for some swanky amenities and features, including a number of LEED certified houses. The facades of former bakeries and bars hide the gorgeous interiors of beautiful single family homes and courtyards with ponds and water features. Bucktown is a wonderful place to live for just about anyone – from young professionals, to families, to retirees.

I’m often asked, “Who is your go-to handyman?" "Help, I need a plumber at 1am!" Where can I find a great home cook for my party?” "Where do I buy a fab bottle of bubbly for my special someone?" After 30 years in the business, I’ve gathered quite a list! That’s why I created my Little Black Book–a comprehensive, 80 page guide of my most trusted vendors, service providers, and partners in Chicago.
