Enjoy the 4th of July along Chicago's North Shore!

Summer is in full swing here in Chicago’s North Shore and many of the communities are getting ready to celebrate our nation’s freedom this coming 4th of July! For many living in the North Shore, it’s a highlight of the season as friends and family gather together and enjoy local festivities!

I have enjoyed living and working as a real estate agent in the North Shore for over twenty years, and believe strongly that where your home is located is just as important as what it looks like. Finding a home in Chicago’s North Shore means not only finding a place to call home, but being surrounded by a great community in which you can be involved.

Whether you’re just visiting Chicago’s North Shore for the holiday weekend, or are a current resident in Evanston, Kenilworth, Glencoe, Highland Park, Deerfield or any of the other surrounding areas; you’ll enjoy all the festivities that the North Shore has to offer this 4th of July!
