Real Estate In Northbrook Illinois

Real estate in Northbrook, Illinois is an excellent investment indeed.  This upscale village, part of the famed North Shore, offers an elegant, comfortable and safe suburban environment--while still only 23 miles from everything Chicago has to offer.  The schools are excellent, the taxes are reasonable, and property holds its value.

A brickmaking kiln was one of the foundations of the community back in the mid 1850s, and the numerous brick houses, old and new, help to create the graceful ambience of Northbrook.  While there are condos and other housing options, 90 percent of residents own their own homes.  Large lots and mature landscaping are the norm.  The back yard is a haven here.

Major corporations centered here include Underwriters Laboratory, Culligan Water, Crate and Barrel, UPS and Allstate Insurance.  These not only create employment opportunities, but also expand the village's revenue, which helps keep taxes low in comparison to the high quality of municipal services.  The village planners have also been vigilant in maintaining the quality of life in Northbrook and have made careful use of the surrounding land for parks, a golf course and a well-designed 130-acre mall.

Thanks to the Internet, you can begin your search for your Northbrook home from wherever you are.  A REALTOR®'s website will offer you multiple listings, information about the properties available, and often a virtual tour of the house as well.  Be sure to get pre-approved for your mortgage first, so you have a realistic picture of your price range.
