Looking for a home with easy access to parks, a quick commute to plenty of local businesses, and winning views of some iconic Chicago sites? Then it's time to start looking at Portage Park, which boasts all of these features and more. 

Located on the northwest side of the city, Portage Park is bounded by Jefferson Park and Forest Glen to the north, Irving Park to the east, and Belmont-Cragin to the South. In addition to its beautiful homes, Portage Park also offers a ton to see and do, including its namesake park, a 36-acre area that once played host to the Pan-American Games, as well as Chopin Park, named for the famous Polish pianist

If shopping is more your style, the area also contains the iconic Six Corners shopping district, located at the intersection of Irving Park Road, Cicero Avenue, and Milwaukee Avenue. Portage Park also plays home to some amazing glimpses into the past and future of Chicago, including two iconic old movie palaces in the Portage Theater and The Patio. 

For more neighborhood information, we'll leave that to the neighborhood association and local guides:

Want a little bit of everything? Chicago's North Center - a community area bordered on the north by Montrose Avenue, on the south by Diversey Parkway, west by the Chicago River, and on the east by Ravenswood Avenue - is notable for its small community feel, proximity to great schools, and easy access to the best that Chicago's North Side has to offer, including live theater, comedy, music, and just about every cuisine you could imagine, from traditional German pub fare to cutting edge sushi. 

North Center also boasts some of Chicago's most charming residential architecture, large parks, and pristine, tree-lined streets.

Why You Should List Your Home the Day After the Super Bowl (Source: Pixabay,com - used as royalty free image)

There’s no bigger game than The Big Game, is there? (Yes, we are allowed to say Super Bowl, as it turns out.) All of your friends and family gathered around the TV, yelling at football players, laughing at a fresh batch of Doritos commercials, chowing down on – statistically speaking – four buffalo wings per person? It’s the best!

And there’s another reason why our team here at Real Group marks the Super Bowl on our calendars every year: For real estate pros, it’s a big deal. And if you want to sell your home, we suggest you pay attention to the Super Bowl too; in our experience, the day after the big game is a magical time for home listings.

What makes it so special? You see, the Super Bowl, held in early February, marks the start of the spring season for real estate. While we’d argue that there are some strategic upsides to selling in the winter, there can be no denying that it’s the slowest period of the year, for buyers and sellers alike. For buyers, there are fewer listings on the market to choose from; for sellers, the unpleasant weather, the busy holiday rush, and the dearth of options means that fewer people will be looking to buy at all.

Roscoe Village has been called a "village within the city," and it's easy to see why: This quiet little area is home to lots of small boutiques, independent shops, mouth-watering brunch places, and off-the-beaten-path cafes and taverns, each with their own eclectic feel and classic Chicago sense of hospitality. 

Tucked in near North Center and Lakeview, Roscoe Village is bounded by Addison Street (to the north), Belmont Avenue (south), Ravenswood Avenue (east), and the Chicago River (west). Home to lots of parks and other places for children to play, Roscoe Village is also notable for its central location, which makes it easy to walk, bike, or take public transportation to just about anywhere you want to go in Chicago.
