Oakbrook

Oak Brook definitely has something for everyone.  Shopping, Restaurants, Entertainment, Parks, Golf, on so much more. Oakbrook residents, much like most of the Western suburbanites are educated and affluent.

The Oak Brook Center shopping mall is an outdoor mall with high-end retailers, such as Nordstrom, Macy’s, Neiman Marcus and Tiffany.  The mall’s underwent a makeover in 2013 and will continue to look fabulous for years to come.  As a result of this mall’s huge success and contribution to Oak Brook’s tax base, Oak Brook residents have one of the lowest real estate tax rates in Illinois.

Founded by sportsman and captain of industry Paul Butler, Oak Brook has evolved into a thriving, sophisticated community. A modern commercial and retail base is complemented by abundant woodlands, ponds, streams, gently rolling hills and stately executive homes on tree-lined streets. Population is approximately 8,000
