Glenview, a Top 100 safe city!

I’ve never started a Glen blog referencing the FBI, but here goes…

According to FBI crime data Glenview, Illinois, home to the upscale North Shore development called The Glen, is one of the safest cities in the United States.  Location, Inc is the firm behind the website which recently reported on the 100 safest cities with at least 25,000 residents.  (Glenview’s population is 45,549.) The company, according to its website, provides products and data to companies large and small to fuel major investments, mitigate risk, protect company assets and budget resources.  Using FBI data on robberies, assaults, burglary, theft, rape, and homicides Glenview was ranked the 53rd safest city in the country.

I did a little googling to get some perspective on this achievement.  It turns out that there are 19,355 communities in the United States, and, of these, 1,290 have populations of 25,000 or more, according to the Census Bureau.  That puts Glenview’s safety index in the top 4.1% of all cities with that population level.

What does this mean to people considering The Glen as a future home?  According to, “Glenview is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The village’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community.”

So, here’s to yet another feather in Glenview’s and The Glen’s caps!  This is a great place to live, a safe place to raise a family, and wonderful place for kids.  You can’t ask for more.

The Glen offers luxury homes of all kinds: single family homes, townhomes, row homes, condo apartments, two-flats, villas, and duplexes.  It also offers a lovely retail area (Glen Town Center), two golf courses, parks, walking trails, and a Metra station for easy commutes to the city.  If you may be interested in learning about homes in The Glen, please contact me.  I’ve lived in The Glen for over 10 years, and I am an award winning Realtor affiliated with Coldwell Banker.
