About Schaumburg, Streamwood, Bartlett, and Roselle Illinois

About Schaumburg, Streamwood, Bartlett, and Roselle Illinois

I sell homes in Schaumburg, as well as the surrounding Northwest suburbs of Chicago which include Roselle, Elk Grove, Bloomingdale, Carol Stream, Streamwood and Bartlett, to name a few.  These suburbs are approximately 20 minutes to 45 minutes west of O'Hare Airport.  The Metra train line runs through all these towns.  This is great for someone not wanting to drive to downtown Chicago, which is about 30-45 minutes away.  Our weather is a little bit of everything, which is to be expected in Chicago; it definitely is not boring.  The spring, summer and fall can be very nice and our winters have been fairly mild recently, based on past winters.  If you do contact us and are interested in a town outside our area, we will refer you to an excellent agent in your desired area.
