Welcome to West Chicago

Many people want the advantages that come with living in an urban area but do not wish to deal with the inevitable negatives. Let Lance Kammes find a beautiful home in West Chicago for you and your family.
 
Living in a city can be very noisy, and many people would prefer to come back to a quiet neighborhood rather than the hectic nature of the Magnificent Mile after a long day of work. Many with children also would feel more comfortable living in a suburb as opposed to in the center of the city; schools do tend to be better in the surrounding areas of Chicago, and having more room to spread out with the family is never a bad thing.
 
This is one of the many reasons why West Chicago has become such a popular place to live over the past decade. West Chicago is an extremely conveniently located suburb of the city that has plenty of transportation options inside of it.
 
For example, it is entirely possible to take the public transportation train, the Metra, from West Chicago all the way into the city itself.
 
This is an incredible advantage for those who must commute to work inside of the city, yet do not relish the thought of digging their car out from under a block of ice during the harsh Chicago winters. In addition to the convenient Metra, the DuPage airport is also located in West Chicago.
 
However, let it not be said that West Chicago does not have industry of its own. In fact, the Jel Sert Company is located here. Jel Sert produces Wyler’s and FlavorAid and is the city’s largest employer.
 
In addition to Jel Sert, there are also a number of other companies that operate out of West Chicago; there are also General Mills, Siemens Energy & Automation, Pella, Aspen Marketing Services, and many more. Some people actually move to West Chicago in order to both live and work here!
