Episode 82: Flipping Houses in Chicago’s Northwest Side

Knowing a couple neighborhoods intimately is better than a hundred superficially. That’s exactly what the Property People did in Chicago’s northwest neighborhood. It’s how they know how deep they can dig a basement out and how much value they’ll add. What certain features are expected and what can they pass on? Greg and Jennie are a rockstar duo that have grown tremendously and have even more ambition for the future. If you learned something, please leave us a 5 star review and share us with a friend.
