Welcome to Elmwood Park


Elmwood Park is a 1.9 square mile village just west of Chicago and north of Oak Park. In the 1800’s, city dwellers used to ride the train out to Elmwood Park and enjoy picnic lunches under the 200 year old Elm trees. These days, the community has an affordable mixture of single family homes and condos. North Avenue (the border of Elmwood Park) is a wonderful restaurant district.


Elmwood Park Station is a Metra Station connecting the village directly to downtown Chicago.

FAQ from Buyers

How important to obtain a pre approval? -An important step in making an offer is to determine how you will purchase the property – will you be obtaining a mortgage or are you paying cash? Most homebuyers will finance a purchase of this size so the first step in the process, even before seriously beginning your search, is to speak with a lender and have them prepare a pre approval letter for you.
