I've lived in Chicago before, but never in the Bungalow Belt, just apartments in West Town and Logan Square. Since moving away, I've acquired a Significant Other with mobility issues who would have trouble with a walk-up and a dog who almost got us thrown out of an apartment, so we would like to buy a single family house immediately on moving back.
But, I loved the denser neighborhoods in Chicago. Ideally, we'd find something that's Brown Line adjacent, but that gets pricey fast. I would be working in the Loop, so easy transit is very important. Where can we find a good mix of local attractions, but that's still easy to commute downtown and to visit the rest of the city?
Also, can anyone MeMail me recommendations for a real estate agent who is good with long-distance deals?
