River Forest Real Estate

River Forest is directly west of its sister village - Oak Park. They share a high school and several business districts transverse the villages. The village of River Forest has about 1/2 of the area (2.5 square miles) and 1/4 of the number of residents (<12,000). It is a great option for those looking for a neighborhood with great access to Chicago.

River Forest features larger lot sizes and fewer homes per block on average than Oak Park.  The housing stock here was primarily built in the 1920s - 1940s but many new homes were recently built during the recent housing boom when smaller ranch homes and the like made way for larger estates. River Forest has many beautiful homes and on any given block you will see many different vintage styles.  You can search River Forest Homes through the box at the top of this page.

People buy homes in River Forest due to it's convenient access to the city of Chicago, stylish homes and excellent public schools.  District 90 recently received the SchoolSearch Bright A+ award for academic excellence.  They have won the award in each of the last 13 years and is given to Illinois schools that fall in the top 5 percent of the state academically.

River Forest Public School District 90 serves grades K-8 through three schools: Lincoln (K-4)Willard (K-4) and Roosevelt (5-8). Current total enrollment is around 1,350.
