In the event that you are still interested in living in the La Grange area. Check the Village websites and try to attend a number of activities that La Grange has coming up in the near future. There are wonderful restaurants, shops and various specialty shops, for example Art, Candies, Food and Wine.
I have lived in this area since childhood and DT La Grange has always been the hot spot.

Since you live in La Grange, you should know about the busy downtown shopping and dining district, and some of the area housing. However, what makes a place "a good place to live" is very subjective. I moved here in 1990, I am raising my kids here. I've been in Real Estate here since 1994 and worked in local schools. I have met the most wonderful people since moving here. We are a great community that you and your family will find is very friendly and old fashioned in it's values. I always say, living here is like living in "Mayberry". If I can be any assistance with you search, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Fran Griffin, Broker/Owner, Griffin Real Estate
My husband and I moved to La Grange over 14 years ago and started our family here - we love it! It has so much to offer in terms of shopping, dining, convenient transportation (Metra, expressways & both airports) and highly regarded schools. So "yes" - I beleive it's a great place to live!
I'll post a link with this reply to an article about La Grange - referencing Chicago Magazine voting it as the "Best Downtown". If that link doesn't appear with this reply you can also find it via the "Local News" link on on my website http://www.CathyBier.com.
