Residential Real Estate


From its early history, the Oak Brook area has earned a reputation as one of Chicago’s most affluent and prestigious suburbs. Careful attention to the preservation of open space and subdivisions well designed for privacy have helped the Oak Brook area flourish during the rapid housing development of Chicago’s western suburbs.

Covering an area of just over nine square miles, the communities of Oak Brook and Oakbrook Terrace saw the most residential and commercial growth in the late 1960s and 1970s, when completion of the interstate highways and resulting commercial and retail growth made the area accessible and desirable. Oak Brook offers beautiful single-family homes on well-manicured lots. Large estates and custom-built homes easily blend into comfortable neighborhoods and subdivisions on winding tree-lined streets. Homes range in value from the low $700,000s to $5 million.


The 2,300 residents of the City of Oakbrook Terrace enjoy the charms of a small town and the amenities of a big city, with easy access to transportation, shopping and business centers. Homes in Oakbrook Terrace include moderately priced single-family homes and new condominiums now being built on both the east and west sides of the city. Pride of ownership is obvious, with well-kept houses and large lots. Also, due to its solid commercial base, the City of Oakbrook Terrace is able to maintain a low residential property tax.
