First time home buyer here. Family of 2(33 and 32) and a dog. We are currently looking at Winnetka, Northfield and Northbrook. Seeking advice from pro’s in here. More than welcome if you have suggestions for any other north suburbs. Few things we are considering
- My SO need to commute to Lake Forrest and Glenview on daily basis and need to reach real early in the morning.
- Looking for dog friendly, family oriented neighborhood.
- Living in a condo in Evanston, worth renting it out?

+ Wilmette, Glencoe, Glenview, Village of Golf

Didn’t looked into Glenview and Golf. Will do so. Thanks for the pointer.
We looked into Glencoe and price of the houses(the ones we like) are like bananas.

I have a good mortgage broker when your ready. It sounds like your in the right neighborhood also try Deerfield or Vernon hills

Sure thing.
