Vilas Neighborhood

Located directly south of Greenbush, Vilas Neighborhood is one of Madison’s most desirable spots. The neighborhood borders the campus end of Monroe Street as well as the Vilas Zoo, UW Arboretum, two of Madison’s hospitals, and many of the areas connecting bike paths. Vilas’s proximity to downtown and quiet streets make it a walkable neighborhood with great character. The Vilas Neighborhood Association is proud of its small town atmosphere thanks to many small businesses and varying architectural styles (Victorian, Queen Anne, Tudor, and more).

Home Maintenance Tips: Assessing and Addressing Water Damage

With the heavy rainfall we've had this summer, you may have noticed water in places it shouldn't be in your home. Basement cracks, damaged shingles, even improperly sealed vents can provide an entry point for water, causing small spots, stains, or (at the very worst) rot, mold, and possible structural damage to your home.

There are other ways water can wreak havoc in the house, though, that have nothing to do with mother nature. Think about all of the appliances you have in your home that use water- the dishwasher, the refrigerator, the washing machine, the hot water heater- and all of the pipes and fixtures that control the flow of water in your home, like your sinks, showers/baths, exterior faucets, and more!

To make sure you're protecting your biggest asset, we thought we would share some great tips from Ryan Waite of Neckerman Insurance, on checking your home for leaks and drips that happen without the help of mother nature.

Madison Capitol Neighborhoods

The Capitol Neighborhoods area is comprised of several, downtown Madison neighborhood districts: Bassett, Mifflin West, First Settlement, Mansion Hill, and James Madison Park. The area encompasses the State Capitol and the oldest residential neighborhoods of Madison, many of which are deemed historic districts. The close proximity to Wisconsin’s hub of government, to the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus, and to the arts and cultural offerings of downtown Madison make these neighborhoods highly desirable places to live. Situated between Madison’s two lakes, the Capitol Neighborhoods are emblematic of the city flag, and truly embody the spirit of the “isthmus”.
