Into the weekend...

There are a lot of things I don’t really understand, and getting ready for a big wedding months - or even years - away is one of them. In anticipation of their big day, the couple will choose a venue, a menu, flowers, clergy, and which version of “What a Wonderful World” the DJ will play and how many times. Once the engagement is announced, the couple embarks on their respective missions to make themselves as picture-perfect as possible. They go on drastic diets to lose weight, they pump up, they grow out their hair, they get tan, and they get more tan. 


Although this is generally outside my purview, getting your house ready for the Spring Market is right up my alley and requires just as much foresight. So, if you are even thinking about selling in the next 6-9 months, now is the time to call me and my team. With Fall and Winter just around the corner, it’s imperative that we come and photograph your place NOW- with blue skies, blooming flowers, and green leaves in the trees. We can always come back and reshoot interiors if we decide to tweak anything. 


If and when we decide to bring your place to market, we just want to make sure it looks its best for the big day. 


Oh, what a wonderful world it will be!



Have a great holiday weekend!





Bike the Drive!

Grab your bike and reconnect with friends and family on Jean Baptiste Point DuSable Lake Shore Drive this Sunday morning for Chicago's annual treasure: Bike the Drive. Whether you’re new to biking, a seasoned veteran, or biking with kids, Fifth Third Bike the Drive is an event to remember. With sweeping views of the lake and skyline, you’ll enjoy fresh air and the wind on your face! Ride as little or as much of the 30-mile course as you’d like and then enjoy a post-ride festival in Grant Park. No bike? No problem! Rentals are available. Don’t miss this once-a-year event when bicycles reign over the Drive. And keep an eye out for me and my family!
