Hello. I'm relocating to either Glenview or Northbrook because I heard they have a good size Korean population there. We need to rent a single family house with some good lot sizes for privacy. We also need a good school district. Could you please give me some insight about either Glenview or Northbrook as they related to what we're looking for? Thank you.

Glenview and Northbrook both have a good-sized Korean community and some Korean grocery stores. Both suburbs have great schools. You can't go wrong with either of these suburbs. Just choose one that's more convenient for commuting to work.

Do you know of any good local real estate websites that would show us houses for rent in either Glenview or Northbrook? Thank you.

realtor.com - select the option "for rent" when doing a search.

Also, I forgot to mention that the Korean community is in the West/Central parts of both Glenview and Northbrook. East Glenview and East Northbrook don't have many Asians.

Glenview is more diverse and cheaper. However, you'll be very pleased with the korean population as I have many korean friends there!

I would focus on the schools. In Glenview, if you are in Glenbrook High School district your child(ren) will have a different experience than at Maine East. Glenbrook is a higher rated school, but Maine East is more diverse.
