WHERE SHE MOVED FROM
WHERE SHE CALLS HOME Glencoe
WHEN IT ALL HAPPENED
Heather and her family moved five years ago.
WHY SHE CHOSE GLENCOE
“We loved the proximity to the city, access to the lake and gorgeous running and bike trails, and the people were down to earth, bright, interesting with similar values. We also found that there are many ‘transplants’ in Glencoe, like ourselves.”
WHAT SHE’D TELL CITY FAMILIES CONSIDERING MAKING A MOVE
“Life truly is easier. We always talk about how we wish we made the move earlier to establish our network of friends earlier. We also love how our kids get a greater sense of independence and adventure, as we let our kids walk to town by themselves, ride their bikes and gain a sense of responsibility at a younger age.”
WHY SHE WORKS FOR SUBURBAN JUNGLE
“I’m a connector. I love helping people piece the puzzle together to find a new community by using my local network and resources, my knowledge of each town, and my own experiences. Every client is different and I love showing the families the full picture when beginning the search so that there are no regrets in the end once they find that perfect town and that amazing house.”
