Clients are saying:

"Emily is a go getter when it comes to finding a home/apartment. She is very helpful and truly cares about what her clients want and need. My favorite thing about her is that no matter what she is showing you, she does it with a smile and a positive personality."

"Emily made the apartment hunt a very convenient and low stress process. She helped us narrow down our options and was very flexible with our schedules. We were able to see all of our options and pick our favorite unit all in one day. Emily was also extremely helpful when it came to navigating the application process."

"Emily was extremely helpful in answering our countless questions and worked tirelessly to provide us with a place that matched all our wants and needs. She is committed to providing the best service for her clients and went above and beyond by answering our odd questions and concerns at odd hours of the day."

"Emily Ackerman is elite. She represents consummate professionalism, steadfast client advocacy, and holistic dominance from the moment she introduces herself to the moment your dream apartment/home/hippie commune is signed. She closes like a government agency whenever you actually need their services. Emily is vibrant, charismatic, outgoing, and selfless. All complemented with a feminine captivating aggression that makes you wonder whether she can rip a phone book in half with her bear hands (She can). Emily took an entire summer Saturday in Chicago to show me a number of gorgeous properties within my wheelhouse. After a few hours, I wound up with both a beautiful, competitively priced apartment in the heart of gold coast and a school boy crush that rivaled how I felt about Jennifer Love Hewitt in the 90s. 10/10 would totally recommend."

"Emily brings a high level of awareness and extensive knowledge of many Chicago neighborhoods, and that was so important to me when searching for a new place. She was so personable when assisting me in my search, and she made me feel comfortable and confident throughout the entire process. I would definitely recommend Emily to anyone looking to rent or purchase their next place!"
