Keep Winter Blues at Bay with These Fun North Shore Events!

Happy New Year!  I hope 2013 is off to a great start for you and that you’re looking forward to all the new year has in store.  As a North Shore Real Estate agent, I get excited about looking ahead at market predictions for North Shore homes and a year filled with the great events and attractions that the North Shore has to offer.

One of the things I enjoy about working in the real estate industry and helping people buy and sell homes along the North Shore is being able to highlight the excellent quality of life that can be found in cities like Winnetka, Glencoe, Highland Park, Northbrook and Deerfield.  Location is one of the largest determining factors in buying a home and I can assure you you’ll be impressed with any North Shore city you choose to call "home."

If you’re new to the area or are considering relocating to Chicago’s North Shore, you’ll want to check out these upcoming events that will give you a good feel for each city and community!  These events are also a great way to stay active and have fun this winter!
