evanston il: Bubble Man - 02/19/17 08:13 PM
Today, February 19 we took a walk by the lake front in between appointments I had showing property. It was almost 60 degrees out, sunny and a true blue sky. I really enjoyed the hour and got some exercise. We have only had one snow this winter.
While walking along the beach we ran into the Bubble Man. This guy is at so many events, shows and street parties. Many people were watching him and he asked me if I wanted to try my hand at gigantic bubbles. I want to share the moment with you.

evanston il: Martin Luther King Jr Celebration of Life Evanston IL - 01/14/17 06:25 AM
This Monday January 16th is Martin Luther King Jr day in America. Through out his short life Dr. King made a few visits to Evanston IL. As a child living on the Chicago South Shore I remember hearing about and reading events that happened such as Dr. King speaking at Solder's FIeld in Chicago. He could fill up the place like a Rock concert and it struck me as very interesting.
A very powerful person who is truly missed, this is a great time of the year to remember Martin Luther King Jr and what he did for America and the world. Here is some information about Dr. King … (23 comments)

evanston il: Evanston IL Active Rain Meet Up Prairie Moon Fantastic! - 08/05/16 03:10 PM
I did know what to expect because I had never met many people from Active Rain. Wayne Martin & I met a few weeks ago and brainstormed. I love this man, he has so much to say and I list Wayne among my friends who really can relate to me. Anyway I am off topic.
Prairie Moon is a great Evanston Restaurant started by students from the Kendal Culinary school and very popular. As Wayne and I chatted while sipping iced tea, the people started flowing in. We had Peter Xavier also known as Pete X,  Evelyn and Larry Johnston from Elkhart Indiana. Some of my best Active Rain friends … (28 comments)

evanston il: Evanston IL Lake Front at Northwestern University - 07/29/16 12:55 AM
The campus of Northwestern University and the Evanston IL lakefront back up to each other and during the summer it is paradise. So nice to walk and there is always lots of activities going on. They have a sailing section and you can rent and take a lesson on any type of boating you could ever want. It is as good as it gets.
Last Sunday we took a four mile walk all through the campus of Northwestern, the Evanston lakefront and checked out the beaches. Not only did we get some exercise, our faces got color. What a nice day even … (22 comments)

evanston il: Clark Square Beach Throw Back Thursday - 06/02/16 09:11 AM
I am not going back too far, this was Monday on Memorial Day. A fine day it was. The temp was just right and we went for a long walk and just checked the beach out. I really enjoyed myself and when we were walking I bumped into an old friend I had not seen in many years. He was also out for a stroll and we hugged each other. It is a small word, this saying is so true.
What I really like about this picture is the guy kicking back to the right of the sign so relaxing Evanston is so nice … (21 comments)

evanston il: Evanston History Center Mother's Day House Walk 2016 - 05/09/16 07:14 AM
Every year I take Mom on Mother's day to the Evanston History Center Annual Mothers Day house walk. This year was really so much fun and the weather was great. It was about 68 degrees, sunny and no wind. A perfect day for walking, talking and viewing historic Evanston houses. Every year they do something a little different and we both agreed that this was excellent. After the house walk we go out to dinner and it was a little bittersweet because usually my Dad joins us for the dinner part but this makes year two that he has not been … (15 comments)

evanston il: On A Clear Day You Can See Forever in Evanston IL - 04/09/16 07:11 AM
I have a little habit of snapping photos once in awhile while showing property to clients. Today I showed a 1927 vintage knock out 9th floor condo to a buyer client of mine looking for something special. This property which was located at 1519 Himnan in Evanston IL had one of those old fashioned elevators and a dynamite view of Lake Michigan and the Chicago Skyline. I took these photos while the clients walked in the other room as to not disturb them. I share this with you my friends.

evanston il: The View From High Up - 03/22/16 03:58 AM
Well not that high up but last night I was showing condos to a buyer couple at about 7PM and it was still light out. This one building had a deck that was four stories up and had wonderful views from all around. It was funny because the clients, the listing broker and myself all whipped out our phones and started taking pics as soon as we entered the deck. Here is a look at the views we saw.
This is me standing North and you see downtown Evanston

evanston il: Evanstons Downtown Rated In Top Ten In USA - 03/10/16 10:48 PM
I have lived in Evanston IL since 1979. During that time the town has changed so much. At one time there was not much going on and you went to Chicago if you wanted a meal or entertainment. That has all changed. Now Evanston is the place to be. As a Realtor we see many people who choose Evanston IL as a place to call home. The downtown area has greatly expanded. There is so much to do and so many great choices in dining.
I am going to quote an article in the City of Evanston web site. 
Downtown Evanston has been ranked … (30 comments)

Sheridan road along the lake front of Lake Michigan is a very well traveled street. I noticed the traffic backups plus stop and go traffic so I thought I would warn people to seek alternate routes. Many a side street or Ridge, Asbury. or Dodge for the short time this project is running.
