Lake Forest Real Estate

Welcome to your top Lake Forest home & Orange County real estate resource. Lake Forest is a city located in Southern California that offers a wide range of amenities to fit any lifestyle. When it comes to a population explosion in California, Lake Forest stands out. Residents numbered 80,148 in 2014, an increase of 36.5 percent since 2000. This southern Orange County city encompasses 17.9 square miles. Until its incorporation as a city in 1991, the community went by the name El Toro. Its sudden population increase was due to expansion of the city limits to include two master-planned developments. The current Lake Forest name links to two manmade local lakes and a so-called “forest” of Eucalyptus trees. This city has an appealing small-town atmosphere plus proximity to all that Los Angeles, about 46 miles to the north, has to offer.
