TenantTestimonials Hear why our apartments are in such high demand!

"I am currently living at 1501 N Sedgwick and I was wondering if you guys had any 3 bedroom apartments available for June 1st in Lincoln Park/Old Town. I have really enjoyed renting from you and would like to stay with you if you had another place with 3 bedrooms. Thanks Tom"

RentGreat Testimonial by Tom Tom / 1501 N. Sedgwick

"With Alex and I moving out come the end of next month, some friends and I decided we want to grab a 3 bed room in the area. I thought it would be great to ask you if you have any openings considering the experience here was amazing. We''re looking for something in the wrigley / lakeview area...basically nothing North of Irving Park, nothing west of Damen; we''re open to being more south depending on what''s available. "

"So Chad and I would like to sign on for another year at 1234 N. Cleaver. I just want you to know that we have been really impressed with your service over the years. You and your team have been very responsive when we have had issues and Andy is really easy to work with. We have also noticed some of the upgrades around the building, i.e., fire extinguishers. So we would like to thank you for everything you and your team does. "
