Forest Glen Home Inspection
Forest Glen is located on the city’s Northwest Side. It comprises the neighborhoods of Forest Glen, Edgebrook and Sauganash, with sub-neighborhoods of Sauganash Park, Wildwood, North Edgebrook and Old Edgebrook.
A community of about 550 residences on the far Northwest side of the city of Chicago is often referred to as “Chicago’s Finest Community”. It is one of the oldest neighborhoods on the Northwest side, and is at the southern part of the official Chicago neighborhood’s area of Forest Glen, which also contains Edgebrook and Sauganash. The first European American to settle Forest Glen was Civil War hero Captain William Hazelton of the 1st Cavalry Division. Captain Hazelton built a home in Forest Glen which still stands, and started a Sunday School that evolved into the First Congregational Church of Forest Glen. Hazelton also built the Glen’s first barn at what is now Lawler and Elston.
The Forest Glen neighborhood is bordered by the Chicago River to the north, Foster Avenue to the south, Cicero Avenue to the east and Metra Milwaukee District North line to the west. Forest Glen shares its ZIP Code (60630) with Jefferson Park.
It is highly recommended that you get a complete professional home inspection done on any home that you purchase in Forest Glen. The unique architecture and ornate homes may have surprises or complications that an experienced home inspector can identify in their home inspection report.
If you are planning to attend an open house to give it a thorough inspection, don’t go in blind. There’s a whole lot you can find out about a property, either by checking it out yourself in person during the inspection or asking the on-site real estate agent (or both).

I had the opportunity to have Charles inspect my 106 year old home in Chicago. Charles was very knowledgeable about the different systems, masonry, and features or historic homes. He is realistic and helps explain why something is good or bad in the home. I would highly recommend Charles for any home inspection needs..
Thank you Greg. I did enjoy taking a long look at your home. I was a pleasure looking at that history.
