Just what makes Winnetka so special to luxury home buyers?
“Winnetka appeals to homebuyers because it is a tight knit and family oriented community. One of the reasons why the village has the reputation as one of the most successful communities in the nation is because it boasts one of the nation’s most notable public schools, New Trier High School.” says Maureen Mohling of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Winnetka office. Maureen currently has the most expensive listing in Winnetka. “There is never a shortage of things to do in Winnetka. Not only is there access to 3 Lake Michigan beaches, but the village is also filled with great locally owned shops and restaurants. You also can’t beat the close proximity to the city, only 19 miles north of downtown Chicago. It’s truly the best of both worlds.” said Maureen.
