Clients are saying:
"I used Elliot to rent one of my apartment units and the process was incredibly fast, efficient, and absolutely painless on my end. Everything was done in a very timely matter and he was able to get me a higher rent than I was asking for. He is very enjoyable to work with and I highly recommend him based on his knowledge of the area being so easy to work with."
"I relocated to Chicago for my career and had very little understanding of the Chicago neighborhoods. Thankfully, a college friend of mine, who is from and lives in Chicago, referred me to Elliot. After my very first call with Elliot, he had a respectful appreciation of my housing budget, my preference of the type of neighborhood I desired to live, my apartment style preferences and my must have amenities. Elliot immediately sent options within my budget and that met all of my criteria. After receiving lots of great options to review, we were able to narrow down a list of my favorite properties. I then traveled to Chicago to spend half a day viewing my list of properties. Elliot put together an amazing schedule; I didn’t have to do a thing! He was punctual, all our viewings were on time and he gave me a tour of the various neighborhoods along the way too! He did an amazing job helping me make a decision by the end of the day that met all my requirements. Elliot helped me with every step of the process to find an apartment that I absolutely love. I am overjoyed and relieved by my overall experience working with Elliot. He made my move so seamless and I could not have done it without him. Thank you so much Elliot!"
"Elliot showed me two-bedroom apartments in South Loop in August 2018. Because I was short on time and away for most of the summer, Elliot did almost all the legwork beforehand, sending me apartments responsive to my criteria. He was very quick with follow-up any time I sent him an email. I was impressed that he was able to squeeze 10 apartment showings into a five-hour period, and I thought he had insightful comments to share during the showings. If you're looking for an apartment or home in Chicago, definitely give him a call!"
"As a first time renter, I was so grateful to have Elliot to answer all of my (many) questions. He was professional, but also made me feel very comfortable. Thanks to him, my roommate and I are about to move into an amazing apartment and I couldn't be happier! I would highly recommend Elliot for anyone who wants someone with experience, personality, and a great knowledge of the Chicago-area. He can recommend places and things to do near every apartment/house he lists and I trust him, which is something highly valued in a realtor."
