Buying a Home in the La Grange IL Area? Here’s Some Tips!

As a real estate broker with Coldwell Banker in La Grange, IL, Nancy Miller is a strong advocate for housing. Obviously, as a Realtor, it’s just good business, but it doesn’t stop there. The fact is that whether you’re selling a house or buying your new home in La Grange – or one of the adjacent towns (La Grange Park, Brookfield, Hinsdale or Western Springs) – you’ll find your real estate needs cared for and provided for when working with Nancy.

Considering putting down roots around La Grange Illinois? Here are Nancy’s tips for familiarizing yourself with an area.


  • With your home buying decision makers in one vehicle, drive around the area and find parks, the post office, the closest grocery store, a favorite chain restaurant, mall, bank, hospital, swimming pool, etc. Anything and everything that the area you plan to move into needs to have to meet your lifestyle.
  • Have you narrowed the areas down to a neighborhood or two? Get a map of the area or make a map of your own, mark the streets that interest you. Bike paths, parks, tennis courts, etc. too! What are the local, easy-access items for you?
  • Say “Hi”. Don’t wait for the neighbors to introduce themselves. La Grange’s side streets have plenty of parking. If you’re going through an area and see someone outside, pull over and strike up a conversation.
    • Questions you can consider asking:
    • How long have you lived here?
    • What’s your favorite places around here?
    • Anything you wish was different?
    • Engaging those who already call La Grange or Brookfield IL home can give you a lot of insight. You might even learn about the local hotspots.
  • Pick up the local community newspaper for lists of local events, discount coupons to local businesses, etc. What’s the flavor of the community? What does life there look like to you?
  • Go to the library and park districts. La Grange’s library district has a lot to offer. Whether you’re looking for things your kids can sign up for, or are looking for places to plug-in yourself, these stops will tell you a lot about the area. From reading contests, book clubs, videos and magazines to park district basketball leagues, pools and more, staying occupied is a cinch.
  • Moved in? Participate in your new community. Join your homeowners association and attend the meetings. Join the PTA. Volunteer at the local food bank. Your new neighborhood will feel like home in no time.
