Ask your agent if there comfortable showing in Elmhurst and if they want to truck all the way out here. Ask them if there familiar with a the different areas of Elmhurst, such as: crescent park, cherry farm, tuxedo park, Bryn haven, Elmhurst highlands, Stratford hills, college view, etc.
I'm always willing to work with your agent of you want him/her to call me.

Most real estate professionals work a wide geographic area and those of us who make this a full time business usually have extensive knowledge of most areas we work in. Who knows, the agent you're working with in the City may have once lived out this way! Ask!
If you do decide to work with another agent call me for an interview and see if we're a good fit for each other. I just closed on an Elmhurst property, put a renter in another and am working on another sale there - all in the last 3 weeks!
You don't need an agent from Elmhurst necessarily, but be sure the agent is works Elmhurst and is comfortable with it.
I personally work a 25 mile radius from O'Hare Airport with clients in 6 counties because I am a full time broker and I make it my business to know how to assist my clients.
My office is actually in Park Ridge, but I live a distance from there.
If you don't have an agent, I'd be happy to talk with you to see if you feel I might be a good fit.
To answer your question about in town homes, most of Elmhurst homes are on the Multiple Listing Service and not for sale by owner or word of mouth, so you should see a selection depending on your price point.

The best way to determine this is to ask him/her. Are you comfortable showing us properties in Elmhurst, are you knowledgeable regarding the streets, schools, parks, etc... ? And are you willing to take us out there?
If not, it might be nice to allow your Chicago agent to refer you to an Elmhurst agent (presuming that they know someone who works that area... you don't want a "blind" referral, where they don't know the agent).
