"You've Caught the NET!"



Hey, gang!

Sorry for the delay today - getting ready today to leave Chicago for a few days and head to Keller Williams Family Reunion in Orlando FL early tomorrow morning.  But they're predicting as much as 6" of snow here by dawn - hope I can get out!

Time for another Chicago Neighborhood News Update, courtesy of our Team Member, Jennifer Arcand.  This week, Jennifer writes about the Chicago Neighborhoods of The Loop, The South Loop, Lakeview, and Portage Park, as well as the Chicago Suburb of Naperville IL.
