NIU Coach and Family Find Perfect Fit at Reston Ponds

SYCAMORE, IL –August 15, 2023– Northern Illinois University Assistant Football Coach, Wesley Beschorner, and his wife, Kiki, are not novices when it comes to moving.  Having coached at the University of Pittsburgh, Rice, Maryland and South Dakota and, most recently, at the University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire, the family of five knows what they want when looking for a new neighborhood and found it at Reston Ponds in Sycamore.

“We knew we wanted a family-oriented community with good schools,” said Kiki Beschorner. “Reston Ponds is an up-and-coming community in a beautiful area. We walk our dogs, Zoey and Lulu, throughout the neighborhood and everyone is very friendly.  We’re also in walking distance to downtown Sycamore.

Located just north of I-88 and east of Peace Road in Sycamore, Reston Ponds is a master-planned community featuring six ponds, a 12-acre Sycamore Park District community park and Southeast Elementary School, which is part of Sycamore School District 427. In addition to being within walking distance of downtown Sycamore, Reston Ponds is minutes from the I-88 employment corridor, Northern Illinois University and Kishwaukee Hospital, part of Northwestern Medicine.

“We chose the Palmetto design with four bedrooms, so everyone has their own room,” Kiki said. “I really liked the overall layout and I work from home so having a separate home office was important. We also have a big backyard, which is a must with three active boys and two dogs.”
