  • The Elgin community is an affluent, family-oriented market with a country flavor. Residents are partial to new housing away from the bustle of the city by close enough to commute. Life in Elgin offsets the hectic pace of two working parents with growing children. We are well-connected consumers that appreciate technology and make liberal use of it for everything from shopping and banking to staying current and communicating. We are "Foodies" and like to cook with natural or organic products.
