Evanston

Why Live in Evanston?

I love Evanston

I attended Northwestern University and graduated in 1980. After spending four years living in Evanston, it became clear that I wanted to settle in this wonderful city.

The university, the lake, the proximity to Chicago are some of the reasons that people come to live in Evanston . What has kept me here all these years is the incredible sense of community, the diversity, and it is a great place to raise a family. Our schools are well regarded nation wide and Evanston Township High School is one of the best high schools in the state.

In 1981 I met my wife, Karen, who is from Evanston; we raised a daughter, Kate, who is 23 and lives in Boston. Growing up Kate had access to many of Evanstons programs sponsored by the Park District; Evanston schools from Elementary to High School prepared her beautifully for college.

Evanston is an incredibly vibrant city- and was recently named the fifth best city to live in. The restaurants, the university, the lake, the beaches, the schools- and the people make living in Evanston the best place to live.

Nothing shows off our wonderful city than our Fourth of July parade. It shows that being progressive and having that Midwestern down home feeling do not need to be mutually exclusive.

Since 1998 I have helped buyers and sellers achieve their goals. Help me achieve yours!
