    Good luck! I moved south from Chicago 8 years ago (lived in Chicago, Evanston, Wilmette, Lake Forest, Gurnee, Wheeling--and worked in the N. & NW burbs).....wish I'd moved south sooner!

    Post up photos and questions if you have any...we'll be happy to help!

    @Julian I grew up in New Lenox and ended up in Plainfield. Good call on the location.

    @Amar Nanduri its gorgeous and it looks like a steal, but im looking to stay about $15k for a year. After that if I boat as much as I think I will Ill upgrade to something like yours.
