jefferson park chicago

Located on the northwest side of Chicago, Jefferson Park is one of the city’s 77 designated community areas. It is bordered by nearby Norwood Park and Forest Glen, and is located directly north of 
Portage Park.

Originally founded as a settlement for traders, hunters, and farmers, Jefferson Park was annexed by the city of Chicago all the way back in 1889. Today, you can still feel the history in this quiet, residential-focused community. Poke around Jefferson Park, and you won’t only find lovely homes, tasty restaurants, and top-notch parks and green spaces - you’ll find a stunning old movie palace-turned-cultural center. You’ll find the headquarters of the Gift Theatre, one of Chicagoland’s top companies. You’ll find cultural festivals that woo visitors from around the region - and around the country.

Why Rogers Park?

Located just south of Evanston, Rogers Park is a quiet community with a rich history, offering the best of suburban and city living in one lovely package. 

An extremely walkable neighborhood boasting a fair share of restaurants, easy access to Lake Michigan, and a thriving arts scene, Rogers Park is one of the most eclectic and charming neighborhoods in Chicago - and maybe even in the entire state! Part of the reason why? As the home of Loyola University and just a short commute away from Northwestern, Rogers Park is a haven for students and academics alike.

Hiring a real estate professional you trust is no easy feat. Even asking friends and family for recommendations can leave you with a list of 20+ names. Where do you go from there?

Narrowing down the list can be a challenge, but it is a necessary process. Your real estate agent performs all negotiations on your behalf. You want an experienced and respected negotiator on your side, who similarly is able to articulate the process for you and thoroughly answer any questions you have.

Your vetting process can easily help determine these. Before you shake hands and start signing paperwork, ask your prospective agent these seven questions.

1. How long have you been in the real estate business, and how frequently do you conduct business?

You may be able to glean this information from websites like Zillow or from your prospective agent's website, but this is important information to know. Work with an agent with full-time experience upward of a year.

We emphasize full-time, as many agents can hold on to a license without much real-world experience. Valuable real estate experience is only earned through actual transactions and activity in the field. Don't put your transaction in the hands of "part-time" or "occasional" agents.

One of 77 designated community areas in Chicago, the Hyde Park neighborhood is home to some of the city’s most beautiful and iconic institutions, ranging from the Museum of Science and Industry to the world-renowned University of Chicago.

Located about seven miles south of the Loop, Hyde Park is officially bounded by 51st Street/Hyde Park Boulevard to the north, the Midway Plaisance to the south, Washington Park on the west, and Lake Michigan on the east. Some locals stretch their definition of Hyde Park to include some of the southernmost parts of Kenwood, which is, officially, a separate community area.

A popular destination for locals and tourists alike, Hyde Park played home to the 1893 World’s Fair. Also known as the Columbian Exposition, this major turning point in American history introduced the idea of electricity – not to mention the modern ferris wheel – to nearly 30 million people.

Today, Hyde Park still has plenty to offer, including Frank Lloyd Wright’s world famous Robie House, great access to the beaches of Lake Michigan, the DuSable Museum of African American History, and the Hyde Park Art Center, which has been an influential institution in Chicago’s art scene for decades.
