About Me

India Whiteside Tougne has lived and practiced real estate in Lincoln Park and the Andersonville area since 1998.  India has helped buyers and sellers all over Chicago, from the South Loop to Rogers Park, and the lakefront to Humboldt Park, specializing in Lakewood/Balmoral where she resides, and Lincoln Park where she and her husband own the restaurant Chez Moi and her children attended school. Aside from owning investment property, India is a homeowner and renovator, and can easily relate to all the joys and woes that entails!

 India has been a member of both the LSC and the PTA at Lincoln Elementary.  As the Wellness Chair for the P.T.A., she implemented a food-allergy safety program, and Kids In Motion, an indoor exercise program during the winter season.  In this capacity India also organized an evening lecture series for parents.  In her terms on the Local School Council, she served as Committe Chair for Budget and Organizations.  India also participated in fundraising (organizing a CSA) for EFAC, Ecole Franco-Americain de Chicago, and is fluent in French.

   She lives with her husband and two children in their beloved Lakewood/Balmoral, where India has long served as a block representative on the Resident's Council and helped organize the ever-popular Harvest Moon Festival. 

Originally from Wilmette, Illinois, India received her BA degree out east at the College of William and Mary, where she studied economics, marketing, finance, and philosophy.  She takes continuing education courses for real estate on a regular basis, including completing the month-long course of study entailed in being a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS). Always looking for better tools to better serve her clientele, India has joined forces with other top agents on Chicago's north side to create the northedgegroup.   They are dynamic team of highly successful agents with combined sales of over $300,000,000, working together to realize greater success for their clients and, thereby, themselves.

Clients are saying:

"India is the best! India was extremely knowledgeable and helpful as I purchased my condo. She responded to my many questions and concerns quickly and thoroughly and researched answers when needed. India represented me well, negotiated on my behalf and had my back. I will be referring others to India. Thank you for excellent service, India!"
