    From Short Sale to New Record High Price in 4 Years: 2007 W. Belmont in North Center
    This top floor 3-bedroom at 2007 W. Belmont in North Center was recently re-listed after it was briefly on the market late last summer. If it looks familiar, that's because we actually did chatter about it in 2012 when it was a short sale. See the 2012 chatter here.

  • Nettelhorst Elementary School reviewed

    Our daughter started first grade at Nettelhorst in 2015. We really like the school, teachers and parent involvement as well. Its a great community. The only thing we would have liked to see a bit more of, is indulgence in sports. May be it comes in higher grades but havent seen a lot in first grade.
