Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood might be one of the city’s most underrated. You’ll find storefront art galleries, the resonance of church bells on Sunday, bicycle-powered food carts, and the best Mexican restaurants in town (I stop in Pilsen weekly for a taco fix). Local residents are lobbying to place sections of Pilsen on the historical district registry, and new development and rehabilitation are transforming the neighborhood into a contemporary place to live.
Pilsen is experiencing a transition as it relates to real estate. With lot of debate on the subject of gentrification in the area, the local alderman has been working hard to establish a historic district that would give tax breaks to Pilsen homeowners. While real estate here in Pilsen consists largely of multi-family homes, there has also been rapid growth of new construction lofts and condos in recent years. Pilsen is quickly becoming one of Chicago’s most promising neighborhoods when it comes to real estate.

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?"
