I spend quite a bit of time in Chicago’s Logan Square; showing homes, indulging in a delicious meal, meeting friends for craft cocktails and live music. There is something pleasantly contradictory about the gritty urban streetscape and hipster vibe set among towering, leafy trees lining wide boulevards. I first discovered Logan Square more than 20 years ago; it somehow feels that the neighborhood hasn’t changed a bit, yet has evolved into its own special place.
Logan Square real estate is a blend of old mansions, new condos, and everything in between, but is best characterized by tree-lined streets with bungalow-style homes and elaborate mansions. The recent influx of buyers to the area has triggered a boom of residential real estate development, including condominiums, lofts, town homes, three-flats and single-family homes at a variety of price points.
Though larger homes that reflect Logan Square’s rich history may top the $1M mark, there are many real estate bargains still to be had in this Chicago neighborhood, with smaller bungalows starting in the high $200s. Investment properties are available in the form of multi-family dwellings with two to four–flat walk-ups a good option for the individual who seeks income property, and they can be found in the mid $100,000s on up to $600,000. Vintage rehab condos are also available in Logan Square.

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.
