The answer is that housing industry growth is minimal because too few homes are for sale, and rising prices of homes in many markets have made home ownership financially out of reach for many families.
We're pleased to welcome Dennis Schaade to our team of professional REALTORS®!
Dennis became licensed as a real estate Agent in the spring of 2003. He can't believe this coming spring will be 15 years!
He has been around real estate sales since he was a child. His mother is a real estate agent. There are vivid memories of going on some showing appointments with her, which he always looked forward to, and he remembers all the paperwork and files his mom would have on the dining room table.
A great time was had by all at the Coldwell Banker annual appreciation event for agents and staff at the Shedd Aquarium, where attendees celebrated another year of success with great food, drinks and lively conversation.
Thank you for a great night Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage!
Chicago's Forest Glen neighborhood is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city. It also includes the Edgebrook and Sauganash communities. While the Forest Glen communities are only a few miles from downtown Chicago and the fast paced life one would associate with the city, the neighborhood has a suburban feel.
Looking at the latest statistics available from MRED, our local multiple listing service, here is what happened in residential real estate in Forest Glen, comparing February 2018 and its trailing 12 months with the same period in 2017.

Each year the Chicago Association of REALTORS® honors the outstanding listing and selling accomplishments of our members with the annual Sales Awards Recognition. Awards are given in the categories of residential volume, residential units, and units and volume by neighborhood.
This recognition gives C.A.R. members the opportunity to celebrate success and, more importantly, to demonstrate the power of cooperation that exists in the Chicagoland real estate market.
Please join us in congratulating the Sales Award Recipients from our office:
