My brother in law will be coming to Toronto / Brantford from Chicago to celebrate New Years with us. I think that he might actually be driving from Chicago tomorrow. It’s going to be a fun time when he arrives! He loves to party.
You might remember that this past August Chris and I drove to Chicago with some friends, well sorta friends, and spent the weekend there. That was a lot of driving just for a weekend trip, but since it was my first time visiting Chicago I didn’t mind. I was excited to go there since I’d heard so much about the city but hadn’t seen it before.
Even though my visit was brief, I left there with no doubt in my mind that I could live there. You see, I found Chicago to be similar in a lot of ways to Toronto. I know it’s not the same, but the hustle and bustle, always having something going on, yeah that’s just like Toronto.
Now, if I was going to move there, or if someone that I knew was moving there I’d tell them to contact the NewCastle Realty Group. They specialize in Chicago Real Estate for the whole 7 county area including the city of Chicago and over 180 surrounding cities. Their agents are said to be extremely helpful, as they help you find homes that meet your criteria and give you information on the populations in the areas you like houses of worship, median income levels, schools, access to transportation or commuting information and other areas of interest close to the area that you are viewing. They will assist you through the entire process of buying your new home, and if necessary assist you with the selling of your current home, recommending local attorneys, mortgage consultants and home inspectors.
You can browse available properties on their website, and look up other helpful information that will teach you more about the process of buying or selling a home. You might even be interested in reading their informative blog as well.
The NewCastle group sounds very much like the company that helped us purchase our home here in Toronto, and if they are anything like the company that helped Chris and I then you’ll be quite pleased with their services.
