I started BrightLeaf Homes because I believe that we need high performance, sustainable, environmentally friendly homes in the close-in south and west suburbs of Chicago. I focus on building high quality semi-custom homes on sites in existing neighborhoods because there are huge benefits to having easy access to parks, transportation, restaurants, and shopping.

The economic and environmental impact of building and living in far out, sprawling subdivisions is slowly making it more attractive, more affordable, and in some cases, necessary to live closer to work, closer to schools, and in areas where biking and walking is easy and interesting to do.
