Evanston IL Hottest Place to Dine

Evanston IL is named hottest place to eat by the magazine Time Out Chicago. This is a huge honor for Evanstonians and makes me proud. You see in the past years we have expanded greatly and many new condo and rental building have been built.
To go along with this, entertainment, shopping and dining is needed and the population has gone up quite a bit. I had a conversation with a coworker last week and we agreed that the caused data saying we have population of 74,486 in 2010 is way low now.

Please let me quote Emily Stone the editor of the article I read who wrote this in the Evanston Patch. Emily said:

You probably already knew this, but it’s nice to hear others agree: Evanston’s restaurant scene is hopping.

Time Out Chicago just validated the fact by calling Evanston “the hottest place to eat right now.”

“The hottest dining area in Chicago isn’t Logan Square or the West Loop—it’s Evanston, where new bars and restaurants are opening at a rapid pace. And there’s more to come,”

I am quoting a person who is quoting another because the article came from Time Out Chicago so I want to give credit where credit is due.

Here is a link to the Patch article and the Time Out Chicago article.

Evanston Il Real Estate a Look Through the Last Few Years

Evanston Il Real Estate a look through the last few years tells us that 2013 took off on sales of Single family homes, the market really came back strong. In the first quarter of 2014 things are still very busy but not quite as much as a year ago yet.

Soon people are going to realize that they can get a good value for the home they own and wish to sell and things will get even stronger. We think 2014 will end up being another great year in Evanston homes sales but the properties still have to be priced correctly and marketed by a professional.

Evanston IL has so much to offer that it is a very desirable place to live and many people want to become residents of the great town of Evanston that has grown so much in the last decade. Often as a Realtor I hear people saying they want to be able to walk to stores, a variety of restaurants and easy access to public transportation, beaches and parks and Evanston offers all that and more.

Who Was Vivian Maier?

Vivian Maier was an unknown Chicago photographer who would have been a famous artist had she shared her work. I love black and white people photography and this story blew me away when I read about it 6 months or so ago and now WTTW our PBS channel in Chicago has a piece about it on Chicago tonight.

There is also a chat with Jeff Garlin the comedian who was also on Curb Your Enthusiasm. Jeff is from Chicago and a native of Second City which produced almost all the cast of Saturday Night Live. People from John Belshi, Dan Aykroyd, Alan Arkin, John Candy, Joan Rivers, Bill Murray, Mike Myers just scratches the surface but that is not what this post is about.

This woman Vivian Maier went around for years and took pictures and basically kept them to herself. She was a nanny in Chicago and took photography in her spare time. Upon her passing a Realtor found 30,000 negatives and some prints and they are amazing. I could go on and on but this story thrills me so I am gonna keep it short and let you play around with this on your own if you are interested. I promise you will like all this material.
