South Loop Couple Finds More Space, Great Location

We’ve been busy interviewing new buyers of our Eastgate Village residences. Here’s the story of one of our happy new couples, Tom (who is in the catering service for automotive auctions) and Amanda (a teacher at a Hyde Park charter school run by the University of Chicago).

The couple first learned of Eastgate Village from their son, who is a commercial real estate broker. They chose to move because they liked the location and needed more space. They selected the two-bedroom Cullerton model and got to the rooftop room upgrade. They bought in the Spring of 2008 and are expecting to close this January. Eastgate Village will be their primary residence.

They currently live in the South Loop, so they’re already familiar with the area. In fact, Tom likes it so much that he “reverse commutes” to the suburbs to work!

Tom felt the overall buying process went very smoothly. This was their first time buying a new construction home, so they weren’t familiar with the process and found our staff very helpful. He also said he is quite satisfied with Eastgate Village and expects that it will become a good neighborhood as it will experience the outgrowth of the South Loop.
