Why We Moved to Beverly – Danielle and Brad Cain 

By Kristin Boza 

House hunting is hard, especially when there are so many great areas of the city and nearby suburbs to check out. For Danielle and Brad Cain, Beverly/Morgan Park wasn’t on their initial radar, but once they spent some time in the community, they quickly realized the neighborhood can’t be beat. 

“The first time we came here, Danielle said ‘I’ll never move here, it’s so far from everything’,” Brad, a marketing executive at a software company, said. “Then we looked at just one house and she was convinced this was the place to live in. I think a lot of people don’t know about Beverly, which is crazy because it’s just a gorgeous, hidden gem of a neighborhood.” 

For Danielle, a registered nurse at the Shirley Ryan Ability Lab, the distance from downtown where she and Brad both work, was an initial concern. However, the neighborhood had an added draw of being near their families in the south suburbs, which was appealing as they were expecting their first baby at the time. The Cains moved in in February and welcomed baby Edie on Mar. 31. 

“Living in Beverly has been better than we could have thought,” Danielle said. “Everyone’s been so nice and there’s so many families around, which is nice to see.” Their realtor, Michele Pettiford, made sure the Cains saw every nook and cranny of Beverly/Morgan Park and shared information about — and visits to! — the community’s restaurants, small businesses and events with the couple. 

The Cains truly felt welcomed by the genuine friendliness of the community, especially when neighbors they barely know dropped off food after their daughter was born. “We’re really impressed and overwhelmed by kindness and the sense of community here,” Danielle said.
