At Live Here Chicago, we eliminate the stress involved in moving by matching you, our client, with some of the best Chicago apartment rentals in a variety of desirable neighborhoods. We're also experts in brokering sales. Whether you're looking for a short-term lease, relocating to Chicago or searching for a luxury apartment in Chicago, our team of dedicated real estate professionals is on standby to find your next dream home. Here are some reasons you might consider working with us:
We Know the Area
Carolyn Ridge, founder of Live Here Chicago, and her team have a combined experience of over 40 years in Chicago real estate. Since 2008, we've been considered renters’ top rated Chicago apartment finders service. We have the inside knowledge of which neighborhoods are best for commuting, shopping, and which locations are in close proximity to Universities and colleges. We understand how important public transportation is for our clients. We know what apartments are near Lake Shore Drive, Chicago expressways, the Metra, the red line, blue line, brown line and all the other subway lines in Chicago. We can help you, whether you’re an art lover looking for a condo rental in River North, a young professional looking for that perfect walkup in Bucktown or Wicker Park, or a foodie looking for a great place like Logan Square that has over 100 eateries. With one of the largest and most desirable selection of Chicago apartments, we can help you find the perfect place in just about any neighborhood in Chicago.
We've culminated our experience and knowledge into one simple listing results search engine. This way, you can preview your potential Chicago apartment rentals at your convenience. All you have to do is plug in your criteria: how many bedrooms and bathrooms, minimum and maximum rent range, desired neighborhoods, proximity to any colleges, and whether you want places that accept pets.
For maximum results, you can choose "All Areas" and start narrowing down from there. Maybe you have your eye set on a particular neighborhood, but it's always possible that something better might come along so it's best to widen your search area.
You'll get a convenient listing of Chicago apartment rentals that meet all your criteria in either a map view or list view. Clicking on each result will give you more information, including the list of amenities and a detailed description of the area, complete with photos. If you've always wanted stainless steel appliances and hardwood floors, pictures will give you the opportunity to eliminate the results you don't want.
You'll have thorough information such as what metro line the apartment is close to and what kind of ambience the neighborhood offers, even before setting your foot in the area. We've done all the legwork for you so all you need to do is call us for a showing once you find something that catches your eye.
We Arrange All Showings
While utilizing our search engine for Chicago apartment rentals is certainly the first step towards finding your dream apartment, nothing substitutes checking out the place yourself. You have to approach your apartment search like a house search, scheduling to visit several places a day in a manner that maximizes your time.
Your time is valuable. That's why we set up all showings well in advance. We show same day and/or with an appointment. We drive you to each location, so you can focus on what matters: evaluating your choices. We'll show you the places you've personally researched, as well as offer you our expert opinion on other suitable Chicago apartment rentals.
At our office in Lakeview, we will go through all the details prior to heading out. Can't imagine life without your furry companions? No problem. There are plenty of Chicago apartment rentals that accept pets and we'll be sure to find the perfect place.
No Pressure, Just Helpful Suggestions
Unlike some Chicago apartment rental agencies, you'll never be pressured to rent an apartment on the spot. Renting, although not as complicated as buying, still comes with a lease and its own unique set of regulations. Our job is to show you the best apartments, be knowledgeable about what that apartment offers and requires and then let you make the decision.
That's why prior research that maximizes your time and budget is crucial when it comes to Chicago apartment rentals. Live Here Chicago will be here with you every step of the way. Just let us know when you're ready to make that move.
