Special Properties looks

far beyond the transaction

We pride ourselves in

making home buying and

selling personal, stress-free

and professional.


We’re Special. Heck, it

even says so in our name.

That’s why we treat real estate

a little differently from

other agencies. We look far

beyond the transaction and

more into the heart of what

we do. We’re a humble

bunch that really enjoy getting

to know our clients. And

by building real connections,

it makes it simple for our

clients to see us as not just

their real estate agent but a

trusted advisor and hopefully

a long-time friend.


The Green Lake area isn’t

just our community, it’s our

home. We’ve been active

members of the communities

we serve since 1992 and

that’s not stopping anytime

soon. We believe that a community

is only as strong as

those who make it. Leadership

and good energy coupled

with organic collaboration

is proof that the areas

we represent are indeed great

places to work, live and play.

OsteoStrong: A revolutionary

wellness system to build

stronger bone density

OsteoStrong is a rapidly

growing franchise that

helps people of all ages

and fitness levels enhance

their bone health, balance,

strength and posture in a

once-a-week sweat-free

and painless session.

Created based on Dr.

John Jaquish’s osteogenic

loading research and other

studies, the OsteoStrong

system triggers the growth

of new bone and muscle

density through highly

controlled, static isometric

movements. The osteogenic

trigger event initiates

tissue growth cycles for

days after every session,

and as a result, helps with

osteoporosis, type II diabetes,

back and joint pain,

among other issues.

“We have young athletes

who are greatly exceeding

their limits, people in their

forties feeling the strength

and agility they had in

their 20s, and people in

their seventies and eighties

If I didn’t see it happening

time and again with my

own eyes, I would have

never thought it was possible,”

said Kyle Zagrodzky,

CEO of OsteoStrong.

About 54 million Americans,

half of all adults age

50 and older, are at risk of

breaking a bone and should

be concerned about bone

health, according to the National

Osteoporosis Foundation,

and more than 10

million Americans already

suffer from Osteoporosis.

“After just a few sessions,

I noticed lifting a heavy

shingle suddenly became

easy to accomplish. But

now, after little more than

four months, my strength in

the four key areas is up over

40 percent, and my joint

pain is gone! This renewed

stability is absolutely wonderful,”

added Gus Gates.

Gates is currently exhibiting

strength gains of over

168 percent.

OsteoStrong is a natural,

diet-and-drug- free approach

proven by science

that’s not only the next big

thing in fitness and vitality,

The support of patrons

Summer art fairs have

fairs occurring right

So this was a homecoming

for the fair when it

Luxe offers high-end

furniture for less

Wouldn’t you want to

know how to buy new

high-end designer luxury

brand furniture at 60-90

percent off designer prices?

Luxe by Divine Consign

has you covered.

With luxury furniture

brands including Century,

Highland House, Harden,

Pearson, Hickory Chair

and many more, LUXE

is taking the Chicago Designer

Furniture Market by


Featuring a 45,000

square foot showroom of

new designer furniture at

60-90 percent off typical

designer pricing, LUXE is

Disneyland for the savvy

designer furniture shopper.

“There has never been

anything like LUXE in

Chicago. The showroom is

filled with 100s of pieces

of jaw-dropping designer

furniture. It’s always

fun to see the reaction of

people that haven’t seen

the showroom yet. I can’t

imagine why anybody

would even consider buying

designer furniture

without first shopping at

LUXE – shoppers can literally

save thousands, yes,

thousands, of dollars. And

this furniture is truly top of

the line,” said Kellie Scott,

owner and collection curator.

As a result of direct collaboration

between LUXE

and several luxury brand

furniture manufacturers in

North Carolina, LUXE is

able to offer new designer

furniture at prices previously

unheard of in Chicago.

Chicago truly needs a

place like LUXE. No longer

will the public have to

pay interior designers or

designer pricing to own

luxury high end furniture.

It’s here. And LUXE

makes this furniture directly

and immediately

available to you.

Take it home today. No

more waiting 8-10 weeks

for your furniture to arrive.

LUXE is truly a gold

mine. With new designer

furniture arriving every

week, every trip to LUXE

is a truly unique shopping


“The popularity of

LUXE has completely exploded.

We have customers

all over the country.

LUXE offers white-glove

delivery in the Chicago

area and can arrange shipping

to areas across the

US,” Scott said.

Currently, LUXE is excited

to offer a broad selection

of one-of-a-kind

designer OUTDOOR furniture

from the finest manufacturers

at the Merchandise

Mart (and beyond).

“The selection of OUT-

DOOR Designer Furniture

at LUXE is unbelievable.

It’s so exciting! You really

must see LUXE to believe

it. I know, I personally

have completely outfitted

my outdoor space for under

$2,500. I bring clients

to LUXE all the time. Although

the showroom is

only open on weekends,

the staff is happy to make

appointments for shoppers

— not just designers,

anybody — to visit and

shop LUXE during the

week. And this is the good

stuff,” added Jane Adams,

Interior Designer and loyal

LUXE shopper.

LUXE is open Friday-

Sunday and is located

at 2997 W. North Ave.,

Melrose Park. Additional

information (and online

store) is available at www.

Help make Glencoe’s Fourth of July celebration unforgettable

While the Village of

Glencoe’s official anniversary

of incorporation was

on March 29, the community’s


celebration has just gotten

started. To make the 2019

4th of July festivities worthy

of the Village’s 150th

birthday, the Glencoe Park

District has partnered with

the Village to make this

already awesome annual

event even bigger and better.

In addition to your 4th of

July favorites like the Fun

Run and Glencoe’s Got

Talent, new this year, we

are expanding the parade

route so that participants

and on-lookers alike end

at Lakefront Park. Once

there, the Party in the Park

will start right away, with

beer and wine sales, live

music, food trucks, inflatable

games, a dunk tank,

contests and more! The

evening will round out

with a performance by the

Blooze Brothers followed

by a special sesquicentennial-inspired



Also new this year, we

are inviting any and all

community and veteran’s

organizations, religious

institutions, school clubs,

elected officials, neighborhood

groups or teams to

participate in the parade

and in our new float/entry

competition. Floats and

other parade entries will

be judged on overall appearance,

incorporation of

the parade theme (Happy

Birthday Glencoe), incorporation

of patriotic elements,

use of recycled and

sustainable materials, originality

and the number of

participants in the group.

What makes Staley Martial Arts the premiere

martial arts school for the North Shore?

What makes Staley Martial Arts different?

It could be the newly renovated 3000

square foot training space equipped with

changing rooms, showers and top of the

line training equipment. It could be the

convenient location right on Green Bay

Road, a short walk or bike ride for many

in the North Shore community. It could be

the family culture, offering a bonding experience

where whole families learn, train

and grow together.

These are all nice benefits, but the

true difference between Staley and other

martial arts programs, is the “Staley

Method”, the practice of integrating a

fun and rigorous workout and concurrently

learning real self defense techniques

from world class instructors and

athletes. The education and training approach

adapted by Staley enables students

to learn new skills more efficiently

while having fun doing it!

The instructors include Program Director,

Gustavo Rudel who is a black belt in

4 martial arts, has advanced degrees in

physical education and is a World Champion

in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Professor Gus

is known for his patience, kindness and

adaptability to all learning styles and personality


Coach Shelly Barnett, who is a professional

boxer, recently competed for a

World Championship and is the National

Canadian Champion in Boxing. Coach

Shelly is passionate about helping others

the way she has benefited through boxing

classes, improving their health, confidence,

body image and self defense skills.

Coach Arthur Pike has extensive experience

competing and teaching Muay

Thai, MMA and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

The Staley Method has helped countless

students, kids and adults alike, to

improve their fitness, confidence, manage

stress levels and learn invaluable skills at

the same time.

Knobel’s survives

changing direction

Kitchens & Baths by

Knobel, our family remodeling

firm, specializing

in kitchen and bath design

and installation, has

survived and succeeded

in down sizing our business

from a good-sized

showroom, office and

large warehouse space on

Washington Avenue in

Wilmette, to a space that

contains a small display

area, a few desks and file

cabinets, and a small storage

area, and we love it.

Changing direction is

nothing new for the Knobels.

During the depression

in the early 30’s, Karl, a

carpenter, worked for his

father, Charles, a home

builder, and was out of

a job. His new direction

shifted to the basement of

his small, one-bedroom

home located at 1431 Central

Ave. in Wilmette.

As his family began to

grow, small children and

noisy workshops in the

basement were not compatible.

This time the direction

was out to the alley,

where he built a three

car garage, which served

his growing business until


When his land was

purchased by the school

board for the expansion of

Logan (now McKenzie)

School, and he was forced

to move. He chose a lot at

1804-08 Wilmette Ave.

Not wanting to share

that new space at 1808,

he constructed a two-part

building at 1218 Washington,

also in Wilmette.

Being creative in his

design and building skills,

Karl decided to join with

others, who were forming

an association to better utilize

the explosion of new

products and business innovations.

In 1968, Karl, and his

new associate, son Peter,

joined the American Institute

of Kitchen Dealers,

and became Certified

Kitchen Dealers, which included

the yearly requirement

of becoming familiar

with new and related products

as well as in service

experience. They were

joined by son Paul, who

then also became certified

as a Kitchen and Bath

Dealer, by the National

Kitchen and Bath Association,

which had been or

formed from the AIKD.

Believing that making

and maintaining good relationships

was a priority

in our lives, the expansion

of the family business into

additional branch outlets

was rejected. Instead, Karl

and Paul dedicated many

years of service and leadership

to the Wilmette Optimist


Peter used his volunteer

efforts with the NKBA,

where he served both locally

and nationally, and

at St. John’s Lutheran

Church in Wilmette. Supporting

the Wilmette Baseball

Association, Karl

umpired games and sponsored

a team every year, as

we still do. Paul and Peter

were coaches for their

sons’ teams, and enjoy the

“new” Roemer Park.

Now that you know

pretty much about us and

our 86-year-old family

business, what does all that

have to do with Knobel’s

kitchen, bath and other

remodeling work? Among

other things, it tells that we

are experienced experts in

design and problem solving,

featuring new products

and concepts into the

plans suggested for your

project, regardless of its


We use our experienced

suppliers, installers and

sub contractors, and supply

supervision and satisfaction

of client expectations

about on time and

on budget completion. We

do this on a lot of projects,

and upon the completion

of those projects, for a lot

of clients, who reciprocate

by sharing their relationship

with us to a lot of their

family members, friends

and neighbors. It also gives

us the opportunity to meet

and be of service to new

people and their neighbors.

Awakenings Holistic Wellness promotes

health through hands-on healing

Kelly Moretta, owner of

Awakenings Holistic Wellness,

helps people move

toward balance and wholeness

with Reiki Bio-field

Energy Therapy.

Reiki is a Japanese

hands-on healing technique

that promotes overall

health and well-being

by restoring balance to the

body’s energy system at

physical, emotional, mental

and spiritual levels.

“Reiki is one of the fastest

growing complementary

healing techniques,”

she said. “It is widely practiced

in homes, clinics,

hospitals, nursing homes

and spas throughout the


Clinical studies have

shown that Reiki can relax

the body, relieve pain,

improve sleep, clear toxins

and boost the immune

system. Reiki benefits the

healthy and those with illness

and is valuable for all

ages. It is widely used for

stress management and relaxation.

For people with

chronic illness, regular

treatments will help manage

symptoms and enhance

conventional treatment.

Moretta works with her

clients to customize each

Reiki session based on

their specific needs because

of her passion for

helping others.

Moretta is a Reiki Master

in the Usui/Tibetian,

Ascension and Reiju systems

of healing, among

other modalities. She

holds certification with the

International Association

of Reiki Professionals and

the International Center

for Reiki Training.

As the founder and coordinator

of North Shore

Reiki and Energy Healers,

she has created a local

community for both

experienced energy healers

and those interested in

experiencing and learning

about the benefits of Reiki

energy work.

Moretta is also a Reiki

Master Teacher offering

certification classes for

those wanting to enhance

and empower their lives

with this harmonizing energy.

“Reiki’s gentle and nurturing

energy is an ancient

technique that is the wave

of the future,” she said.

“For those looking for a

more holistic approach to

health and wellness the

opportunities are endless.”

Moretta discovered energy

healing through her

own need for healing.

After leading a successful

corporate management

position while raising two

young daughters, she suddenly

found herself in need

of medical help. The stress

and demands of a fastpaced

career and family

life had taken its toll. She

was diagnosed with an autoimmune

condition similar

to lupus that demanded

she immediately pay more

attention to herself.

Doctors offered a host of

pharmaceuticals, but she

knew the key was in making

life changes and embracing

holistic mind and

body wellness techniques

to heal herself.

“I began practicing yoga

and meditation,” Moretta

said. “Later, I received my

first Reiki session, and although

initially skeptical,

I immediately became a

believer and an outspoken

advocate of this transformative

healing art.”

Having experienced the

profound healing that she

did, her passion to share

it with as many people

as possible was ignited.

Moretta left her corporate

career and began studying

different modalities of energy

healing, advancing to

Master Teacher with Reiki

as her chosen specialty.

Along with her healing

treatments, Moretta is also

a certified yoga instructor.

She often combines Reiki,

breath work and meditation

with her clients for a

truly transformative experience.
