If you guessed that no one would want to visit open houses on New Year’s Day, you would have guessed wrong.
Within 50 minutes of the time it opened, nine couples had visited the newly-built 5-bedroom, 4 ½ bath home at 1148 Isabella St in Wilmette, and several more arrived before I left.
They came from the city, from Northfield and from nearby in Wilmette and most, unsurprisingly, came accompanied by children.
Prudential Rubloff’s Vince Scott anticipated a busy day and had several additional staff on hand. He was able to break out a few minutes to tell me about the $1,395,000 home.
