Happy Holidays from Your North Shore Realtor!

As 2013 wraps into a close and we all ready ourselves for celebrating the season with family, friends and loved ones, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of my clients, past and present, for another wonderful year. Whether we’re currently working together on buying North Shore real estate or you’ve been living on the North Shore for a while now, I take an immense pride in helping my clients find the home of their dreams in the community that works for them. Chicago’s North Shore offers the best of many worlds to its residents and visitors – Safe, desirable communities, award-winning school districts, a convenient location very near to the city of Chicago and public transportation and, of course, a wide array of dining, shopping, entertainment, arts and culture that make the quality of life here outstanding. North Shore real estate has always been highly coveted and I enjoy not only helping my clients achieve their home ownership goals but also introducing new residents to all of what our area has to offer. 

Many of us living on the North Shore will be opening our homes and hearts to guests today for the Christmas holiday. Here are just a few basic tips to keep in mind when preparing your home for an influx of loved ones and guests:

-Make sure high-traffic areas that you know will see a lot of foot traffic today are de-cluttered and ready for guests. This means foyers, bathrooms, hallways and living areas should be neat and organized so guests have plenty of room to sit, stand, talk, mingle and enjoy themselves.

-Use a large rug or welcome mat inside the front door to prevent mud, snow and other debris from being tracked from the outside into your home. 

-Child-proof your home, if necessary. This includes moving things like cleaning solutions, chemicals, lit candles, medications and other potentially dangerous items to areas where little ones can’t get to them. If you’re expecting youngsters in your home today, ask parents to bring baby gates and/or childproof cabinet locks for added peace of mind. 

Chicago’s North Shore is a fantastic place to call home, and I hope that all of my clients, friends and readers have a wonderful holiday. Whether you’ll be buying or selling North Shore real estate in the new year, feel free to contact me with any questions. A very happy and safe Christmas to you and yours!
