The town is very pleasant to live in. Not much crime, the education district 211 is highly appraised and the job force is also excellent. Property taxes are higher than in other areas and there are occasional issues with construction. This is a good town to live in if you have a family, not the place for nightlife. The town is clean, no trash alongside the roads. A very diverse area, every house is different and it adds to the beauty of the city.

i think that overall Hoffman Estates is a great subdivision to live in to grow up and go through your pre-college education. There are many good schools around the area that really do set the kids up for college compared to some others schools in Chicago Suburbs. Around the city there aren't necessarily a huge amount of things to do, but it is in the middle of other nearby towns within 10-15 minutes of a drive that have a lot of things to do. This includes a lot of places to go shopping including Woodfield Mall.
A beautiful community and fantastic place to reside! Everything is in a close proximity to one another, which is convenient!
