The School Year is Coming to a Close!

May 12, 2021
Published by

It’s been a difficult year to be a parent. It all started during Spring Break 2020. Our kids took a much-deserved break from school, only to find that they would not be back for the rest of the school year. Summer camps were canceled, as were play dates. Then the difficult choices for the 2020-2021 school year. In-person or remote learning? Or hybrid? No matter which path you chose, we survived!

The school year is approaching its conclusion. And many of our kids will be going to new schools for the 2021-2022 school year. If you are considering buying a new home and have or are planning to have children, schools are an important part of the equation. Fortunately, we have some great public school choices for those of us who choose to live inside the Loop. This article will focus on some of the choices in the neighborhoods in which we specialize and try to help you navigate the decision.

"We are so grateful to have found Sandcastle Homes! They’ve made the home-buying process so much easier and more enjoyable than we could have imagined. They are responsive, respectful, and always put the customer first. We truly appreciate the speed and accuracy with which they’ve addressed any concerns we’ve brought up throughout the process and can’t wait to officially own our first home. Sandcastle has a team that clearly values one another as much as they do their customers, and you can feel a sense of community when working with them."

"Sandcastle did an amazing job with my house. They came through on everything they promised. Jose Salas, the construction manager, is very helpful even after we closed on the house. He goes above and beyond. Getting to meet the owner, Salomon, during the closing was a great experience as many other builders don’t do this. We love our house and the quality of it!!"

Enrique and Judith

"We just moved into our new home by Sandcastle. Since the beginning of the process the whole Sandcastle team paid great attention to our requests and responded rapidly. We were lucky to get in contract in time for us to choose colors, kitchen design, finishes and other and all our requests were reflected in our new house. At the end of the closing, the team always kept the same great attitude towards us and helped us with any question or request. We would say one of the greatest things about Sandcastle is that they really back up what they sell: best price, best service, best quality in town. We ended up extremely pleased with our new house."

Andres and Marcela

"I just moved into my new Sandcastle home and I think it’s a wonderful place to live. They have been very helpful, particularly Lynette and Steve. From the owner Mike Salomen down, it has been a truly positive experience. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to buy a new home that is built of high quality to consider this home builder."
