Finally . . . it's Superbowl Weekend, folks!  Enjoy! What say you?  Steelers? Cardinals (formerly, a long time ago, the CHICAGO Cardinals)? Here is our Team Member Jennifer Arcand's summary of Chicago Neighborhood News for this week.  She explores the Chicago Neighborhoods of Lakeview, Uptown, Th...
THE CHICAGO IL REAL ESTATE MARKET, AND OTHER THINGS CHICAGO, FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF A LITTLE WHITE DOG! Man . . . I'm lost!  You think perhaps I should ask for directions? Naaah!  I'm a guy - too embarassing! If you read the business papers every day as I do, you would think that defaulting ho...
Good Morning! A blurb I read in yesterday's WSJ will not immediately turn the housing market around, but it's a small step in the right direction.  It could set an important example as well. In one attempt to help many borrowers stave off foreclosure, the Federal Reserve Board has created a progr...

This is a troubling story!  It comes out of Florida, but can easily happen to well-meaning, but distressed homeowners here in Chicago. The come-on is oft repeated - on Cable and Broadcast TV.  On the Internet.  And in Urgent-Sounding Mailings. The scam involves companies that promise to "Stop You...
"Mortgage Rates Coming Down!"  Headlines and TV ads shout out the good news here in Chicago. Home prices, due to high levels of inventory for sale and a nearly four out of ten short sale and foreclosure rate in some Chicago Neighborhoods and Suburbs, have fallen dramatically over the past year.  ...
Cold, cold, cold in Chicago today!  Thirteen degrees!   Warmer where you are?  Hope so! Writing here to anyone in the sales profession - which, if you really think about it, touches just a about everyone.  Doctors, who have to explain the benefits of their patient having a frightening procedure. ...
