“It’s like living on an island, because it’s hard to get in and out of. That’s what turns people off. But that’s exactly what I like about it. I kind of jokingly say, it’s the only island connected by a land bridge. Police are really great, fire department is really great, hospitals are really good. School district up here is the best for your kid. There’s not a lot of gated communities, which is nice. And you have neighborhoods where there’s middle-class families living across from the guy who’s got the $30 million estate. So there’s a lot of diversity, which I like. I feel like it’s good for my kids.”
