Check out Bob's Sunday Elite Street column in the Chicago Tribune from Dec. 19, where he broke the news of Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson paying $1,320,000 to purchase a town home in Chicago's River West neighborhood. (in actuality, Bob broke the news of Hjalmarsson's purchase a few days earlier, in an online-only alert on the Tribune's Chicago Breaking Business website)

Also featured: Bob breaks the news of former Illinois State Senate President Philip J. Rock selling his 2,835-square-foot home (of more than 40 years) in Oak Park, Ill. for $740,000. And, Bob exclusively writes about Florida Panthers general manager (and former Chicago Blackhawks defenseman, general manager and TV analyst) Dale Tallon selling his four-bedroom house in Lake Forest, Ill. for $527,000.
