THE CHICAGO REAL ESTATE MARKET, AND OTHER THINGS CHICAGO, FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF A LITTLE WHITE DOG!
Hey, you dogs!  Happy New Year, 2011.  Another year, and I'm still a Lil' White Dog!  Can you believe it?
You know, as my Lil' Sister, Gracie Ella Moss, and I walk each morning through the South Edgebrook Neighborhood of Chicago, where we live. we're a little peeved at those who let their dogs walk off-leash.
That's against the law here in Chicago!  I know it.  You know it.  And the errant human dog owner knows it!
But, sadly, some persist!

Hey, you dogs! 
This troubled U.S. Economy - High Unemployment (10.7% here in IL and across the Chicago Area) - has it impacted you?  Hard?  Having trouble making ends meet?  Putting bones in the dish, so to speak?
I am relieved to say I am still the Customer Service Department for Dean's Team Chicago.  When anyone has a beef, or if some of our less-trusting clients fail to see the value in our candid advice - I step in, sometimes … (2 comments)

Hey, you dogs!  Have you been OK?  I missed you all - have been on Dog Sabbatical, traveling to such exotic haunts as Livonia MI, Cincinnati OH, and Palatine IL.
I sure missed you - dog, human, or other species, and I am glad to be back!
Those of you who know me know I have few vices - The Chicago Cubs, Old Movies from the 1940's, Early Rock & Roll (especially songs from the late rocker I was named after).

Good Evening, you dogs!  Taking a break from celebrating the latest Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup victory to write a brief post on one of the true Icons of Chicago, and the struggle to modernize it in tough economic times.
The Buckingham Fountain, in Grant Park at Congress Parkway in Downtown Chicago, has been a symbol of the City of Chicago, on everything from travel posters, to picture postcards, to the opening sequence from the Married . . . with Children TV … (0 comments)

Hey, you dogs!  I'm getting all set for my BBQ this weekend with Bo - you know, President Obama's Portuguese Water Dog.   That world-famous dog in town this weekend, for his first state visit to Chicago.
Who knows, maybe I'll even get to see his Human Daddy, and tell him a thing or two about how to run the good ole' U.S.A.  I figure, if I bark long enough, perhaps he will listen!
Despite the fact that Bo, and, of course, the First Human, live in … (1 comments)

Hey, hey, you dogs!
You know, most of the canines that know me do not consider me a religious lil' dog!  Haven't been in a church, synagogue, or other place of worship in nearly two years now - since my cousin Sparky's Bar Mitzvah, in late 2008.
But working in a Chicago Real Estate Market that has seen its lengthy periods of sluggishness over the years, it doesn't surprise me to see many human sellers looking to Faith to give them … (0 comments)

Hey, you dogs!  Scary, scary times are about to hit the already-queasy Chicago Real Estate Market.   And it's unsure how the home buying human public will react.
If you follow the financial markets closely, you may have noticed that Average 30-Year Mortgage Interest Rates have climbed quite a bit this week.  On some loans, average rates have topped 5.30% - up from less than 5% just about a week ago, according to an AP Story by Reporters Adrian Sainz and Alan Zibel, published in … (0 comments)

Hey, you dogs!  Slowly, surely . . . Spring is returning to Chicago.  Lots of squirrels to chase, a few robins to bark at.  After a seemingly-endless winter, life is beginning to look brighter, every day!
As the economic recession still stubbornly drags on, IL Tax Revenues have fallen.  Statewide, many programs have been slashed.  Funding for local school districts, including those in Chicago and Chicago Suburbs, has not been immune.
Many elementary and high school districts in the Chicago Area … (0 comments)

Chicago Cubs, 2010!  Believe it or not, another likely-non-championship season for our beloved Boys in Blue is less than three weeks away!  And, this year, they have a new owner, the Ricketts family.  For Cub Fans, no more Tribune Company to kick around anymore!
But now, it appears the previously-sacrosanct, unwritten rule of limiting advertising within Wrigley Field itself is going by the proverbial boards.  Over the last few years, LCD Advertising Panels have been erected under the upper deck, and … (5 comments)

Good Morning, you dogs!  On the way to get gas.  I hate when I am almost empty.  Will I make it to the Mobil station?  Will I?  Will I?
You may have heard that the Chicago Area long has had some of the highest prices for a gallon of gas almost anywhere in the U.S. I saw this clearly a couple of weeks ago, driving back from New Orleans, and the 2010 Keller Williams Family Reunion Conference.

Yes, the Christmas Shopping Season had it's usual hustle and bustle.  For me, and my Human Dad, Team Leader Dean, that meant our annual Father-Son Christmas Shopping Spree - yesterday, Christmas Eve, right after lunch.
