Northbrook Illinois Real Estate

The village of Northbrook, 23 miles north of Chicago's Loop, had its beginnings in the mid 1800s, when it was noted for a brickmaking kiln and a tavern popular with travelers between Chicago and Milwaukee. In 1901, the village was incorporated as Shermerville, with 300 residents.  It was a roistering community, to such an extent that by 1921, residents tried to upgrade the village's public image by renaming it Northbrook.

It certainly worked.  Today, Northbrook is a highly desirable upscale community.  The median annual income is more than double the national average.  Thirty percent of residents have bachelor's degrees, and another 25 percent have graduate degrees.  More than 60 percent work in professional and managerial occupations.  The school system sends 95 percent of its seniors on to college.  

There's more to Northbrook than stunning statistics, however.  The village, part of the North Shore area, is a community that offers quiet elegance and stability, while still being near enough to the energy and vigor of the City with Broad Shoulders.  While real estate options are varied, the quintessential Northbrook home is an elegant brick home set on a large lot and surrounded by mature trees and landscaping.

Property values are high here, as is the level of services available to the homeowner.  Because there is plenty of income generated by local businesses and a large mall, municipal taxes are quite low.  All in all, Northbrook is an excellent place to invest in real estate and an even better place to call home.
