I understand your frustrations with the vague responses. However, please understand that if we were to advise you on neighborhood preferences and opinions on "would we live there", etc.. we would be violating the Fair Housing Act and can potentially be fined.
Check out city-data.com for information on the area. You can also check out cityofchicago.org for crime activity.
If you prefer sales activity in the area you can visit my website http://email@example.com or contact me directly for more information.
Hope this helps and good luck!
