Thanks Jennifer, I couldn't have put it any better myself. This question is asked a lot and there are specific guidelines that licensed Illinois Realtors have to follow regarding this topic.

Just saw your post and wanted to point out that licensed Illinois Realtors are not allowed to give good or bad indicators of neighborhoods, schools, crime stats or other characteristics when it comes to guiding a consumer to or from a specific area. With that being said, I would check the ratings on a website like GreatSchools.org or NeighborhoodScout.com. Also, drive through the Providence community and see for yourself what you like and don't like. Realtors can open the doors to homes, but you first need to decide if it is a good fit for you.

Best of luck!

"Location, location, location defines Providence. You can leave your car at home and walk to brand name shopping, excellent restaurants, doctors, a movie theater and more from one of Providence's eight charming Nashville neighborhoods. The Providence MarketPlace is one of Nashville's best shopping malls in Mount Juliet. There are only a handful of communities on our website who can truly boast about a daily lifestyle without the need to own a car.

Situated on the east side of Nashville, Mount Juliet has become one of Nashville's fastest growing suburbs attributed to quick highway access on Interstate 40 and the Middle Tennessee RTA rail system's stop in Mount Juliet. Named the Music City Star, this commuter train stops daily in Mount Juliet on its way to and from downtown Nashville.

Among the 8 Providence neighborhoods stretching across 1,000 acres, you can find single family homes, townhomes, adult 55+ living and apartments.

About 50% of the community is built out to date.
