"I own nearly 300 apartments in Wicker Park and UK Village and have dealt with most if not all of the rental agencies that serve West Town and have been disappointed with all of them except Live Here Chicago. As a result, Live Here Chicago is the only Rental Agency I do business with. They are both competent and trustworthy and have relationships with most of the good landlords in West Town and other neighborhoods. I wholeheartedly recommend them to both Landlords and Tenants."
