      So many townhomes and so much construction and development. Constantly seeing and hearing construction equipment and rows and rows of townhomes being built. Lots of traffic now! I lost $17,099 on my home for a quick sale to get out of here before Elgin starts development building 7,0000 homes touching Pingree grove.

      After numerous break ins to my vehicles and Amazon packages stolen and my neighbors stuff stolen from his shed we decided to move. Area got very liberal and the town of pingree grove won’t use the word Christmas so they say Holiday tree during tree festival lighting, no American flags and no Veterans Day stuff or anything. Police did nothing about the crime and told me lock my car door. After moving to Hampshire Illinois what a difference in towns and people. If you want a nice little peaceful farm town than move to Hampshire Illinois which is about 8 miles away west of route 47. Pingree grove looks nice at first with the lakes and landscaping but after you move in you will see trouble start. 5 homes on my street have BLM flags in front so if you like that than it’s might be for you.

      I moved from here after paying $9,000 a year for property tax for no property, not even .5 acre. Pingree grove doesn’t have anything. It’s just a subdivision and not even a post office here or any churches or town. No library or park district. Thank God I moved from here and Elgin will soon be building on top of pingree grove.

      Non stop construction in a very congested subdivision. Pingree Grove has no main st or town. Very high taxes and soon Elgin Illinois which is not a good area is building thousands of homes and apartments all around Pingree Grove. It’s just not a good place to live when you can get get better homes in the rest of America or another part of Illinois. I was paying $10,300 a year in property tax for no property not even 1 acre. I couldn’t wait to move!

      My neighbors have block parties with mariachi bands and taco venders. I try to relax on my patio and Spanish music blasts loud for hours from neighbors backyards. Lowriders and Mexico flags everywhere and I go to the rec center and everyone is speaking Spanish. My car window has been smashed and my husband caught Hispanic guys in his garage at midnight stealing stuff. Pingree Grove is just a subdivision with no town and no church or library or post office or park district, just one giant congested subdivision and Elgin is building 4,000 homes and apartments all around Cambridge lakes Pingree Grove and it will only get worse here. 35% of Pingree Grove does not know English and this is not the same town as 5 years ago. My family and friends warned me not to purchase here and I did not listen and now my home is worth $220,000 and I paid $300,000 for it and $9,700 a year in property tax. If you want a nice little friendly country town than move to Hampshire Illinois!
