Favorite Thing About Naperville
“The overall experiences for the whole family—schools, park district, sports, festivals, great downtown restaurants and shopping, and most of all, the people.”

Family Tradition
“Love to host and celebrate holidays and special occasions at our home with family, and impromptu dinners and roasting marshmallows in the backyard fireplace with neighbors.”

Meet Your Neighbors:
“We grew up in Naperville and after living more than 10 years in surrounding towns we realized that we wanted to move back to Naperville and have our children attend the schools we had. We chose to build our home in the Saybrook neighborhood because of the kid-friendly amenities—close to the schools, the swim and tennis club, and active neighborhood associations. Plus, we can even walk to the Dairy Queen!”
