I have resided in west Wilmette for the last 18 years and keep a very close eye on the market. I know the differences each elementary school boundaries can make in home pricing. The village’s construction plans, taxes and retail changes are personal to me and I make sure my clients are on top of the news that affects them as well.
My last transaction was just 5 blocks from my home and my clients won it in multiple-offers. West Wilmette has a tremendously well-built housing stock situated on streets with mature trees, plenty of unrestricted parking and near the transportation options used by all. I am proud to live here as well as work here.
Let me show you around.

My parents bought a smaller bi-level one block west of the Edens (800 Leamington) in 1955 when all the houses were brand new. I was a toddler but I think they paid about $15,000 for it - 1200 sq feet - 3 bedrooms 2 baths finished basement.
