About Montvale, NJ Real Estate Market

This borough from Bergen County covers 4.03 square miles of area, while around 8,000 people are currently residing in this borough.

The borough added more portions from Orvil and Washington Townships in 1906 and from Upper Saddle River in 1912. Montvale derives its name from its topography and is nicknamed ‘the pride of the Passack Valley’.
