    Meet Your Neighbors: The Sullivans

    Meet your new neighbors, The Sullivans of 1412 Silver Street!

    SPAR: Tell us a little about yourselves!
    KS: We are Kristen and Neil Sullivan and we have a 7-month-old son named Brady and a cat named Milo. Neil is a naval flight officer stationed at NAS Jacksonville and works as an instructor for the P-8. I just recently left the Navy after 6.5 years of service and I am currently earning my master’s degree in marketing from Northwestern University. We enjoy playing tennis, hosting dinner parties, exploring the local area, and playing board games. Neil’s hobbies include watching sports (Patriots and Red Sox), playing water polo, and working out. My interests are photography, interior design, and thrifting. 

    SPAR: When did you move to Springfield? 
    KS: We just recently moved into our beautiful red craftsman on February 20th. We’re still getting settled but excited to get to know the area! 

    SPAR: What drew you to this neighborhood?
    KS: We decided to buy a house in Springfield after speaking to some of the neighbors. Their glowing reviews really sealed the deal for us. We love how friendly everyone is and the strong sense of community. We are also looking forward to attending the many events scheduled throughout the year. Springfield seems like a wonderful up-and-coming Neighborhood to raise a family.

  • Meet Your Neighbors: The Baumann Family

    Meet your Neighbors: Kealalani Baumann (and Family) of 1429 Ionia St

    Tell us a little about yourself and your family.

    My husband, David, is from Baltimore and I am from Hawaii, but we have each lived in Jacksonville for about 20 years. We have two kids, an eleven-year-old boy and three-year-old girl. We own Maddy D’s Café and Sweets in Downtown Jacksonville. We love movies and all forms of art. We go on cruises every year, that’s our form of camping.

     When did you move to Springfield?

    We moved to Springfield in March 2012, renting a house on 6th and Laura. We immediately fell in love with the houses and bought our house in August 2013. We love our house and our street. It’s quiet and peaceful and we have great neighbors!

     What made Springfield a great option for you and your family?

    We loved the houses, trees, and at the time the price was right for us. After buying our house, we got to know the community and all of the events in the neighborhood. We have never lived in such a welcoming and supportive community like Springfield before and count ourselves lucky to have found it!
