Buyer looking for 3 bedroom home in Lincoln Park.

New or newer construction preferred. Or a complete renovation.
Thanks!

  • Hi, I have some single family home listings coming soon in both Lincoln Park and Bucktown. Email me and let me know more specifically what you're looking for, agreenberg@pearsonrealtygroup.com.

    Best,

    Aaron

  • Michael Bucktown Resident

    This "Airborn" fellow has posted very similar ads in Bucktown (looking for house in Bucktown) and Lakeview (looking for house in Lakeview) sections of EB too. Not sure what his or her agenda is, but surely finding a realtor in Chicago shouldn't be a problem. EB is not the right forum for this.

Trees chopped down

Trees are being taken down in the Fremont and Wisconsin area. Does anyone know why? I have not yet heard back from the Alderman's office.

  • Same thing happened over on Belden. I tried calling and writing the Alderman to see if they will at least be replacing the trees. I understand the Ash disease, but it's now been over a year and it's just stumps everywhere. I have yet to hear from the Alderman.

  • Here's what I heard from the Alderman's office:
    Thank you for your email. Alderman Smith does not grant approvals or permits for tree removals, as the Bureau of Forestry is charged with inspecting trees for potential disease and removing as is deemed appropriate. That being said, we have contacted the Bureau of Forestry for an update on the tree that was removed, and will also input a request with the Bureau of Forestry for replacement of the tree this spring.

Boots on Cars

I've notice a drastic increase in boots on cars in the past week. Does anyone know what caused this spike? A friend of mine got one and only had 1 outstanding ticket. Please be careful and pay your tickets

  • sos

    City changed law a long time ago, it only takes one ticket to get a boot. the booters go in waves.

  • I just went to the City of Chicago website referring to the boot and it said 3 or more tickets. Where is the info regarding just one ticket? That is a shock. Thanks for the info...

  • sos

    It was ten or so years ago it was changed to one ticket, maybe it has been rolled back to three tickets.
