The "North of What you Expect" Experience

"I relocated to Appleton from Atlanta for a great job opportunity and found the housing options to be great and affordable.  My wife and I considered studio flats in the city as well as single-family homes in the suburbs - we decided on a new house in a great community.  We've enjoyed the low cost of owning our own home and appreciate actually having friendly neighbors!"
