Why am I writing about Chicago hot dogs and beef sandwiches?  Both my husband, Don and I grew up in Chicagoland.  Don, could eat Chicago hot dogs and beef sandwiches for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  He is a true hot dog lover.

Don Wilber parks in the hot dog lover's spot at Cooker's.

When we first moved to Naples, Don longed for good Chicago style hot dogs and Italian beef sandwiches.

Don missed his Chicago fast food when he first moved to Naples.

You can only imagine Don Wilber's unbridled joy when he discovered Cookers located just East of Goodlette Road on the North side of Pine Ridge in the Mission Square Shopping Center.  If you know where Noodles is located, Cookers is just across the street from Noodles.

Cookers in Naples serves great Chicago style hot dogs and beef sandwiches

According to Mr. Wilber, Cookers has the best Chicago hot dogs and Italian beef sandwiches in all of Naples.  This afternoon found us finishing errands and having lunch at Cookers. Both Don and I had Italian beef sandwiches.  I had mine with sweet peppers and Don had his with Giardiniera peppers.  We both truly enjoyed our sandwiches.  I will say it does take the counter people a while to prepare the sandwiches.  Should you be in Naples and have a hankering' for some good Chicago style hot dogs and Italian beef sandwiches, head for Cookers at 1485 Pine Ridge Rd. 239-254-0777.

FYI - My manager sent out an e-mail to all the Downing Frye agents recently that on March 31st, 30 sales contracts were turned into our office. 

The Naples MLS showed the following activity from:

March 1, 2009 - March 31, 2009

 New Listings          


Pending Sales




Withdrawn Listings


Expired Listings


Price Changes


Listings Back on Market


As of today, there are 10,592 active listing on the market in Naples.  Take a close look at the number of price reductions that were taken during the month of March in Naples;  3,159.  I would say looking at these numbers that 3,159 sellers were motivated enough to sell their homes that they lowered their asking price.

If you have been thinking about owning a second home in Naples, you may want to start planning on purchasing this year.  Low interest rates and a wide availability of affordable homes makes buying a home in Naples a good choice.
