 Meet your Neighbors

Number of years in House and in Naperville: The house is brand new, but we have lived in Naperville on and off for 20 years. We love the community and keep moving a little closer to the vibrant downtown.

Favorite room in this house: Our favorite room is the dining room. It has a custom Schonbek chandelier and terrace doors to the front porch. We love having the holidays at our house and serving big meals with friends and family.

Favorite thing about Naperville: It has all the amenities of a big town—great schools, fabulous hospital, good restaurants—but still has a strong neighborhood feel. We really like the sense of community in Naperville. It is a big town population-wise, but people still take the time to say hello.

A family tradition: We like to have a party over the holidays to have family and friends over to decorate gingerbread houses. It is lots of fun. Some of the attendees get very competitive with their designs.
