Edgewater Real Estate

edgewater-chicago-ilDid you know that the Chicago neighborhood of Edgewater was once the playground for Chicago’s early 20th century elite? Now, this community offers high-rises with spectacular lake views and easy access to beaches and parks.

During the summer, this Chicago neighborhood offers a farmer’s market that bustles with vendors selling farm-grown fruits, veggies, flowers and other handmade items. The long paved trails run the length of this neighborhood and beyond, offering breathtaking views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline.

Edgewater also offers a variety of real estate options; moderate housing prices and easy access to public transportation and the lakefront make this area very attractive to people of all ages, income levels and backgrounds. Edgewater condominiums are comparable to similar homes located further south, in Uptown and neighboring Lakeview. Many large homes and classic apartment buildings remain in the Edgewater real estate mix, with good deals to be had on rehabs as well as new construction and investment properties.

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.

Q: There are so many neighborhoods to choose from, how do I know which neighborhood is best for me?
A: I suggest to clients that they make a list of what they want their day to day life to look like. That list might include things like: easy access to public transportation; ½ mile from the the lake; tree-lined streets with mostly single family homes; close to bars and restaurants; top level public elementary school; trendy, up and coming… start big, winnow down and prioritize. I also suggest that clients look at a few places in several neighborhoods to get an understanding of what each neighborhood offers. It’s all about options, choices and priorities.

Q: Should I work with a real estate agent?
A: Yes, there are several benefits to working with a real estate agent, especially an experienced top drawer agent. Not only will she be able to give you an accurate value assessment for the property you fall in love with, you’ll likely get a better deal if she is a bear in negotiations. And your agent will advocate for your best interests throughout the transaction. You may also get access to properties not yet actively listed – which is especially important in a hot real estate market such as Chicago! Additionally, when working with an agent, you don’t just get access to her expertise – you get access to her entire network of advisors, lenders, contractors, and more.
