Naperville: Quite a Place

There are some cities that, from the minute you step foot on their streets, provide you with that wonderful feeling of home. They feel spacious, yet close-knit. They feel exciting and modern, but also have plenty of old-school charm and personality. And their natural beauty is only exceeded by the warmth and hospitality of their people.

d’aprile properties is proud to represent the city of Naperville, a town that we feel is the perfect mixture of city and suburbia. It is home to a thriving business community, yet still offers a premiere place to raise a family, or simply enjoy adult life. Our own Naperville office location sits right downtown, at 236 S Washington St. — right above Potbelly’s.

Spend a few minutes gazing out our front window, and you’ll see business people in suits pass by parents pushing a stroller in workout gear. A 2019 Tesla stops in the middle of the street to let a minivan full of 8-year-old soccer players parallel park in front of a local eatery. No matter where you look, residents of every culture and creed hold their heads high, knowing they live in one of the best and safest cities in America.

They have a little press to back it up, too! Last week, Money Magazine named Naperville number 45 on their list of Best Places to Live in America. They described Naperville as the “the quintessential suburb of Chicago” with “a lot more to offer than its proximity to the Windy City.”

We couldn’t agree more. If you’re searching for a community that exudes amity and goodwill, look no further than the city of Naperville.


Right Where We’re Supposed To Be

If you were to ask the average agent what the number one rule in real estate is, you will often hear the phrase, “Location, location, location.” Because the perfect home isn’t made up of just brick and mortar – it has to be part of the perfect community as well.

And when you’re a real estate company, the same rule applies to where you decide to place your offices. d’aprile properties could not be more excited to announce that we’ve found the perfect community for its 11th office!

But honestly, where’s the fun in just coming out and telling you? Think you could guess our newest location, based on pictures alone?

We’ll give you some hints. This amazing Chicago suburb can best be described as a ‘big small town’. Home to 40,000 residents, it blurs the line between suburban and rural.

Need more? Our newest home is an important stop on the Union Pacific NW Metra line, where thousands of commuters make the short, 50 mile trip into the heart of the downtown Chicago.

Featuring two of the best public school systems in the region, high-quality municipal services, and one of the lowest tax rates in the area, this beautiful burg takes pride in the amenities it provides its inhabitants.

Oh, and did we mention our office is smack dab in the middle of downtown?

All of this to offer, and we haven’t even talked about the lake. Oh wait…lakes. Sparkling water, pristine beaches, hiking trails, boat rentals, scuba diving, and so much more! Can you guess the spot? Let us know in the comments. It really is “A Good Place to Live!”
