Welcome to the Elgin Fox Valley’s newest blog on real estate plus more! I am looking forward to meeting some new friends and adding to the knowledge pool of our community in this diverse area. Elgin stretches across two counties, Kane and Cook ,and is home to nearly 95,000 residents. Elgin offers housing for luxury owners, first time buyers, moving up/downsizing, property investors and vintage lovers alike. Elgin has excellent resources such as the Gail Borden Library and The Hemmens Cultural Center, in addition to two Metra stations for easy commuting. The serene Fox River has great trails for walkers and bicyclists to enjoy as well as the fisherman to cast a line. With low housing costs and all the amenities of a big city, Elgin keeps pace with all today’s home buyer could want.
