Robin - you had a nice '09.

I certainly think that working with a good buyer's agent is an excellent idea. But just as a general though, I still think that Investor's concept of bidding 88%, even today, should be successful in Evanston's high end market. As you say, the Million + market has been on the slow side.

Investor asked this question in May of 2008, so I'm sure they're long, long gone.
