Out of the blue on a sweltering July morning, I got a text from Cat, a past client and friend from high school. She and her husband, Mike, had bought a vintage penthouse in Lincoln Park a few years ago. She asked if I’d stop by their place to chat about the listing process.
Mike and Cat’s condo on Halsted Street holds a special place in my heart: Not only did I represent them on the purchase, but shortly after their closing, I moved into the same neighborhood. From her cryptic text, my mind started to wander: Where were Mike and Cat going?
When I arrived, Cat filled me in. A job opportunity for Mike had presented itself — it was a role in Charlotte, North Carolina. “Wow,” I breathed, picturing Craftsman-style houses and willow oak trees. “That’s so crazy, but so cool!”
Cat took me through each room, pointing out the updates they’d made (drool-worthy bathroom renovation, custom lighting, brand-new appliances). My eyes were wide, taking it all in. I looked at her with sincerity. “Cat, I’m so proud of you guys,” I gushed. “This place is perfect.” And it is, right down to the comfortable styling and inviting details.
While I’m sad to see my dear clients leave Chicago, I couldn’t be more thrilled for their upcoming adventure. All of this change means Mike and Cat’s beloved condo is officially up for grabs. I am delighted to bring it to the market.
