As a Lake Zurich Realtor, I have helped many families relocating to Lake Zurich not only with finding a new home, but also by providing valuable information that will help them settle in and learn more about this wonderful community. As a life-long resident of the Chicago Northwest Suburbs, I’m excited to be able to create this resource and hope that it will help you get a feel for Lake Zurich and all that it has to offer.
Lake Zurich is located in southwest Lake County approximately 35 miles from Chicago. As Chicago has expanded in the past 40 years, so has Lake Zurich. The easy commute to downtown along with the family-friendly atmosphere of a village combines to create an ideal community for executives and their families.
Lake Zurich boasts over 30 public parks along with the 250 acre Lake Zurich itself. On any given day you can find families fishing, boating or just relaxing among the beautiful scenery. You can also find many quaint specialty shops and restaurants in which to browse.
