I am a multi-unit director for a restaurant company and I closed on my new townhome at Eastgate Village this past summer. Originally from El Paso, Texas, I have lived in Schaumburg for the past two years. I first learned of Eastgate Village from my Coldwell Banker realtor. I was looking for a townhome or condo, somewhere in Chicago relatively close to downtown and had heard that the South Loop was a good area.
I chose Eastgate Village because I really liked the floor plans and thought the model homes were nicely done. I selected the McCormick floor plan and thought that the price was right — you got a lot of house for your money, it’s in close proximity to the South Loop and McCormick Place, and because I like to jog and run by the lake, it’s the perfect location.
The overall home buying process went very well. It was easy and the sales staff was great. Natalie was my salesperson and she did a fantastic job and was very responsive. The management company has done a great job also.
The community itself is building its character. It’s cool for me because I get to be on the ground floor. I plan on getting involved in the homeowners association. It’s great to be in a new community from the beginning.
I have also met several new and future residents — a lot of young professionals like doctors and attorneys. It’s a very diverse mix, which will make living at Eastgate Village an exciting and interesting experience.
I also like the floor plan’s layout and being able to pick out my home’s features — granite, counters, appliances, etc. My new home is custom made to fit my needs. And with a great location, it’s easy to use the CTA to go to the airports or to take the bus to get to the Mag Mile.
