“I love the city because there is always something to do – especially in the summer with all of the concerts, street fests and farmers markets. Many great beaches to choose from and no sharks! I also love the variety – be it food, people, entertainment…so much to experience!"
– Mike Rooney | Andersonville | Quaid and Rooney Agent
“City life is the perfect life for us, our dog, and so many of our friends! Our neighborhood felt like home right away – from the people, to the best dog park around, to the new River path we love to bike on! We wouldn’t want to live anywhere else!”
– Anne and Michael | Irving Park | Quaid and Rooney Buyers
“Chicago is a city where you can find anything you are looking for. I love the free music festivals in the summer, they rival any concert you can pay for! I also appreciate the fact that you can go sit at the lake all day and feel like you’re at the ocean on vacation…and you can do that all day everyday and never get sick of it!”
– Mack Quaid | Lakeview | Quaid and Rooney Agent
