I and a very close friend had a meeting with a very nice lady in Evanston Illinois. She told us that she wanted to sell her home at 1832 Brown a 5 bed and 3 baths. I asked her, “Are you thinking of moving to another town?” She said “NO! I love this town! Me and my family have been here for over 30 years. I am considering an upgrade to a bigger home” From the emotion, I saw in her reply, I decided to conduct a little research on the home and town of Evanston. I myself have been living in Evanston for a few months. I don’t know much about the town besides the stories about the former president Barack Obama in regards to the secret meetings with the super-rich Democrats who live here.
