Photo Friday - Above the Chicago Skyline

By
Real Estate Agent with Florida Property Experts

Today is not one of my usual photo days, but a friend of mine who frequently travels to Chicago insisted on e-mailing me this photo today. He said I HAD to see it. I warned him that if I liked it, he knew where it would end up. He didn't care. Sooo....  ENJOY!  Isn't this amazing!?

Chicago Skyline-photo by Port Orange FL Realtor

BTW, a lot of the photos you see on my blog, if taken by my friend Nick, are from Chicago, where he lives =)  But this one happens to be from a REALTOR right here in Port Orange, who has family in Chicago. So you can all thank John for letting us borrow this shot :-D

Now if any of you in Chicago would like to move to Florida (Just wait til winter. That's when you'll get the urge), I'd love to help! I'm a Daytona Beach native with experience selling all types of real estate in every city in East Volusia county and beyond. Make a Smart Choice and contact Lisa Hill for all your real estate needs.

Lisa ~ It's a great shot.  I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and moved to Denver about 19 years ago.  Chicago is such a great place.  Thanks for sharing that great shot.  And thank John as well!

I've had several clients that came to Austin by way of Chicago, so I'll be fighting you for the transplants!  It's a beautiful city, but the cold & wind would be too much for me!

That's a fabulous photo of Chicago.  And I do believe today was an incredibly hot one.  The picture, however is cool.

Lisa, Wow, the picture is very refreshing...It was quite hot here today.  Driving around, my car said the outside temp. was 101 degrees.  That's crazy for this time of year.  We have been hot most of the summer.  Showing vacant homes - without the air conditioning on has been tough.  I have clients that bring towels along to wipe themselves down.

Gary- That figures. I'm heading for DeLand later! >.<

Glad you all like the photo. I'll be sure to let John know. I should just make him get over here and blog. He could post his own photos! ;-)

I didn't know about the heat. Over 100. Wow! You guys have it worse than we do! At least we have the sea breeze to move the air a bit.

Jeff! Hey stranger! Where have you been!?

Shelley- re: heat, I usually leave the car running so it doesn't get hot again while we're inside. I just carry 2 set of keys =)    .... Oh, and it's on! lol

Yes, it really is amazing.  I've only been to Chicago once, and that was flying in and out of. . .I never left the airport.  I really need to go and spend some serious time in the city.

John- He was in a building, or on top of one somewhere. I have a couple of other shots of a clear floor where his grand-kids were taking pictures of each other. I think some of the folks here would have a better idea of the location than I would... or I could call John again.

Myrl- *raises hand* I'll go with you! =)
