For three generations and counting members of my family have lived here. Despite this fact, I was raised and lived in the city of Seattle. When an opportunity arose at the firm to head a new office in Chicago I took it as a sign and accepted. Though that was four years ago, I still find myself wondering why I hadn't moved here sooner. While it is true that I have an appreciation for growing up in in the northwest, Belmont Cragin is my home. I believe deep down I've always known this.

As all the locals know, Belmont Cragin is the birthplace of Walt Disney as well as the community which saw local boy Mike Krzyzewski change the game of basketball as coach of the Duke Blue Devils. These truths are indicative of the type of community that Belmont Cragin is. A community of hard working individuals. One where families are raised and the seeds of how hard work and determination can see any dreams realized are instilled in its members. Belmont Cragin is family to all who reside here. The quintessential neighborhood to raise a family in and establish your roots. Relocating to Belmont Cragin has been the best decision possible, not only for myself but for my family as well.

Activities are never in short supply in one of the largest metroplolitan areas in the United States. Visitors constantly remark on the atmosphere and how friendly and warm people are. The lake is a summertime favorite for everyone, whether its the fireworks display held every July, the barbecues or the chance to leave the inner city for a while and do nothing but relax. Shopping of all sorts are in abundance, providing all that may be needed at reasonable prices. The school system's knowledgeable and attentive instructors ensure that children receive the very best education possible. For anyone seeking the perfect community for raising your family Belmont Cragin will give you reason to look no further.
