So many things littering the house that need to be disposed of.  Tossing them into the garbage seems wrong nowadays - everything has a place - even when recycling.Good news for North Shore residents whose homes have some of this "stuff" accumulating around the house.  Go Green Wilmette and the Village of Wilmette are hosting a free recycling event on Sunday March 13 from 12-5pm.  The drop off will be at the east end of Lake Avenue where it deadends at Gillson Beach.  I'm happy and surprised to see the number of items that you can dispose of:Notice that textiles are accepted but with some restrictions.  Please check out this page for more information on which types of household textiles they will accept:  Recycling Textiles List.Plus - there is no fee to clean hard drives.  According to ...

Today my buyer client got a beautiful townhouse at 1829 Wilmette Ave #C Wilmette IL 60091 under contract. This is a very nice property that was on the market for $549,000. An end unit with 3 bedrooms and 4 bath rooms plus a half bath, an attached 2 car garage in a fantastic community. You hear me describe Wilmette as cobble stone and tree lined streets. I love Wilmette and so does my now very happy client. This property was only on the market for 15 days before we got a contract signed, sealed and delivered.

It is no wonder, Wilmette IL is a fantastic village with so much to offer.

Today we are talking about the Wilmette IL houses for sale scene as of January 2016. I always love to describe Wilmette IL as cobble stone, tree lined streets in the most beautiful neighborhoods sitting on the Lake Michigan lakefront with the Gilson park beach and stunning Bahai House of Worship on Sheridan Road.  Wilmette is a fun place to visit yet a bedroom community perfect to raise a family. One of the most desired Chicago North Shore communities.Wilmette IL is a small community of 5 square miles and has more than 1800 trees that consist of over 150 species. The 2010 census showed that Wilmette has 27,087 people and 40% have children under the age of 18 living in their family. The statistics are boring but the community is very exciting, relaxing and where people want to live.If yo...

UPDATED 2020 Recently I've seen several local listings that are listed by an agent from outlying areas. It's not like we have a lack of local and very qualified real estate agents in Winnetka and the North Shore. Competition for listings is very robust and I wonder under what circumstances a seller would not choose someone local to sell their home.This subject came to mind recently when I ran into a builder who had built a home in the North Shore and was disheartened that it wasn't selling.  I told her that I had never seen it - in fact, I was pretty sure no agent had seen it because it had never been open (broker or public.)  In Winnetka and other North Shore villages, we agents take broker tour days very seriously.  Every new listing is expected to be open on Tuesday mornings for brok...
