We sold our Chicago condo in July 2011 and then began looking for a home in the southwest suburbs so we could be near family. From the beginning, we were looking for the home in which we would settle long-term and grow our family. We began looking at fixer uppers, thinking we’d get a deal in this market, but we also tried to keep an open mind to everything that was available. We swept suburban towns looking at homes and drove through the Glens of Connemara one summer day. Coming from the city, we wanted space. We saw the golf course and the nearby forest preserve and that piqued our interest. A week later, we returned to the Glens of Connemara and met Jamie in the sales office. From the get go, dealing with 5th Avenue was relaxing and comfortable. We always felt it was an open, honest dialogue. In October, we connected with Frank to really investigate what we could do. The numbers looked good and we could get precisely what we wanted from the beginning – no long renovation projects necessary. The opportunity was ours to take and everything was in motion by Thanksgiving. We love to entertain and the Carna’s open floorplan was ideal for that. We were admittedly particular about what we wanted in our home. We wanted a bedroom facing the golf course, so we could put a deck off of it. We moved the laundry room to the second floor, something the team fit in while adding a full bathroom in one bedroom. We added windows throughout the home, even lifting the entire home one foot so we could fit windows in the basement. We even requested additional windows after framing. All along the way, 5th Avenue accommodated us. There was no question they were going to get things done. We moved in June 21, 2012 and we look upon the experience as a regret-free one. If we were to ever build new again, it would be with 5th Avenue.
