If you’re in the market for a starter home in Lake View, this one-bedroom condo with an eat-in kitchen at 920 W Oakdale Ave (listing page) might be right up your alley. The home is listed for $222,900 and includes hardwood floors, a woodburning fireplace, a dishwasher, air conditioning, Thermopane windows and a separate storage unit.
It’s a fairly solid location, a stone’s throw from two el stops and the bars and restaurants that line Sheffield Avenue. Mostly, though, it would be cool to say you bought a condo with Beer. No one needs to know you’re spelling that with a capital “B.” As if his name weren’t marketing hook enough, this enterprising sales agent with Coldwell Banker also has a pretty great URL for his Web site – MyChicagoBroker.com.
The only misstep as far as we can see is his slogan, “Depend on Bob for all your real estate needs!” The last name would have been much more effective there.
