It’s so great to have you here!


My name is Ginny Jackson.

I am a real estate agent with over 20 years of experience selling houses and being a Naperville resident. Throughout my work, I had a chance to meet thousands of people who were looking for a place to call home. On that journey, I noticed that people want to know more about how does it feel to live and work in the best Chicago suburb.

That’s how my blog was born. By reading my stories, you will get to know our community through the eyes of a mom of five, wife, friend, and neighbor. I’m looking forward to meeting you.

Cheers! Ginny J.

About Naperville

As a 25 year resident of Naperville, I have had the privilege of knowing this community in so many ways: as a newlywed couple, a mom of five children, and now as an (almost) empty nester. During all of these stages I have come to love this beautiful town of Naperville and am somewhat of an expert on all it holds.

Located 28 miles west of Chicago, Naperville, Illinois is home to approximately 148,000 people. Naperville is the 3rd most populated city in Illinois and consistently ranks as a top place to live, play, raise a family and retire.


Naperville’s 2 public school systems consistently rank among the best in the state & North Central College is in the heart of downtown Naperville.


Many neighborhoods contain the local elementary schools so you will find many children walking or riding their bike to school.

Real Estate

Only 28 miles from downtown Chicago, Naperville consistently ranks as a top place to live, raise a family, and retire.

“With all the amenities of a modern city and all the charm of a small town, Naperville truly is the premiere community in which to live, work and play.”

Dining in Naperville

Naperville is vibrant and GROWING – was the 2nd fastest growing city in Illinois between 2010 and 2020. There is something for everyone and for every palette!

Naperville History

Naperville history spans nearly two centuries. The story of this community’s development into a city with more than 140,000 residents is an interesting one!

Fun & Leisure

Naperville Park District is home to world class parks – 136 of them! We certainly had our favorites when our kids were little but there is always a new one to try. In addition, there is a vast selection of recreation programs for all ages and diverse interests.
