I live and work in the Sheffield Neighborhood of Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood with my three daughters and wife. My kids attend St Josaphat's Grade School on Southport and we are always out and about in the hood. Most of the photos on this site were taken by my kids as we went exploring.
There is always so much happening in our neighborhood I wanted to create a hyper-local site that chronicles the ebbs and flows of our community focusing on real estate and business but really anything that is of interest or worthy of a post. Please join in the conversation.
I have a passion for design and architecture and for decades have practiced the preservation and renovation of existing buildings with conversions to higher end residences. In 2014 my wife and I purchased a row home on Bissell Street and completely renovated it following the LEED for Homes protocol. We hope to achieve LEED Gold certification. I will post some details here. Some of you probably know the home. We made quite a dust storm and transformation. We love it!
I own and manage a residential real estate brokerage team called The Gramata Realty Group with @properties that continues to be a top selling team selling properties throughout the city including Lincoln Park.
I hope to see you around the neighborhood.
