Did 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?"
