Middleton Wisconsin is #1 Because of Great People Like Bill and Cathy

It's people like Bill and Cathy that make Middleton, Wisconsin the Best Place to Live in America.

Darren Kittleson of Keller -Williams in Madison scooped me on his Middleton Wisconsin Voted "Best Place to Live"  blog.  He correctly pointed out that Middleton is attracting the kind of people that want to live in a place with access, reasonable real estate prices, low crime, and a positive outlook.  Darren's own quality homes, built by his company Sterling Concepts - has done its fair share to attract good people like The Maynes and he encourages quality of life. 

American Girl Is HQ'd in MiddletonNow back to Bill and Cathy.  These are the kind of people you want in your neighborhood.  Bill coaches or assists in three community youth league sports.  He's on committees and supports their games.  He does business - their business, not his - locally with as many people as he can.  He knows his neighbors, their kids, and can talk to them about jobs, family, and nothing at all very comfortably.

Bill and Cathy both volunteer at their son's school, providing support ranging from lunchroom work to field trip chaperones.  Cathy is active in local committee and church groups.  They vote, ride bikes, and help their neighbors shovel snow during the long Wisconsin winter.  They are the good citizens of Middleton - They didn't move to the #1 community in America - they helped create it.Capital Brewery

So why is this relevant to my blog and ActiveRain?  Bill is Bill Quigley, my business partner and friend.  We maintain a small office in Middleton and Bill is the brains behind the problem-solving we do for our Robbins and Lloyd Mortgage clients.  He's one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet and is the neighbor you've always wanted.  And behind every great man...well that means Cathy is his equal in every way.

Congratulations to Bill and Cathy Quigley for living in America's best place - and congratulations to Middleton for finding them.  They are a small part of a big deal, like the tiny jewels in a Rolex watch that make it so precise - and so very precious.

What a nice tribute.

There is a 'tributes and kudos, from the heart' group that would probably like a wonderful post like this.

Hey thanks Ron - You came recommended by the highest authority (she'll be OK when the drugs wear off) and I'm grateful to be a part of this upbeat stuff. 

I'll try to be a good citizen.

Congrats to Middleton. I guess Madison has been falling in the rankings lately but Middleton is rising so what gives? They're right next to each other. When I lived there I couldn't even tell whether I was in Middleton or Madison.

Thanks,
Shailesh

OK Shailesh - Madison's falling, but I'm moving to FL, so it might climb back up.  I take the blame.  I follow that Middleton/Madison confusion - can't tell where one ends and the other begins either.

Thanks.
