I’ll take a quick break from all things Real Estate and share a picture that shows my Shih-a-Poo Frankie having fun in the huge snows we have been having! She almost disappears when she runs, we've had over a foot of snow!
Now on to business: The beautiful home I listed at 1440 N. Dearborn is now closed. There will be other amazing properties sold in the Chicago market as the year goes by, but so far in 2018 this transaction is the highest value single home sale in all of Chicago! My associate Amanda Falsetta and I are having a great beginning in the New Year!
I am enjoying being back at Coldwell Banker and the Chicago market is moving along nicely. Just last week I was honored to participate on a panel as one of three Brokers for the PowerHouse SMART Luxury Conference at the Merchandise Mart on February 7th. Many of the top Brokers and other professionals such as Interior Designers, Developers, and Builders attended.
This elite group was brought together by Wendy Cohen to network and bring expertise to the table for other members to benefit from. All the members of the panel had such relevant and interesting things to say. One interesting fact was that the Victorian style home is the most popular nationally, but here in Chicago we have more stately brick and graystone homes than Victorians. Here I am with another attendee, it was such a wonderful event!
Finally, an important merger will be finalized soon, between one of Chicago’s most esteemed architects, namely Lucien Lagrange, and one of Chicago’s top Real Estate agents, namely Yours Truly. Yes I am pleased to announce that my long time companion Lucien and I are getting married on Saturday, February 17. We are keeping it low key and not having a huge wedding, but we are very much looking forward to a nice party with our families and close friends!
