If the associates of the real estate industry took note of the appearance of the approach their clients see on their way to the showing perhaps they would have a different approach to some blog posts and the tell-all photos. Isn’t one of the big buzz words Curb Appeal? Isn’t another the close proximity to public transportation? Renters and Owners get a view like this at least twice a day on many Rogers Park streets.
There are some properties for sale on this street. If a prospective buyer met the real estate agent, they may have driven down this street to their destination. Looks great doesn’t it? How many other streets have stretches of weeds and trash like this? Did the bloggers do it?
It took neighbors calling the ward office, calling 311, calling IDM management of the Broadmoor properties which includes the vacant Broadmoor East. It may have taken less energy and time had the real estate industry put their share of pressure on the violators to finally get a drive by that looks somewhat less blighted.
Sometimes even bloggers agree to disagree on certain issues – but trash and lack of services, drugs and crime and cronyism isn’t one of them.
