on Friday, 28 July 2017. Posted in Blog

Chicago Property Finders Process

Finding a luxury apartment in a major city like Chicago can be a daunting process, as desirable units in popular neighborhoods are harder to find as demand increases. Seeking professional assistance from an established apartment finding company can help take stress off your own plate. With no shortage of apartment finding services to choose from, it’s important to find a good fit before wasting your time with one that doesn’t listen to your needs. At Chicago Property Finders, we pride ourselves on truly hearing our clients first, which ultimately helps us to find the best luxury apartment in Chicago that is perfect for them. Continue reading to learn more about what makes us special and how we can help you.

What Makes Chicago Property Finders Unique

1. Our Focus: Luxury Apartments & Condos

We are exclusively focused on luxury properties in hot neighborhoods with upscale amenities.  Our entire business is focused around the specific needs of our clients. Most of our competitors will find apartments in all price ranges, in all neighborhoods, with no specialty. If you are in the market for a Chicago luxury rental, working with a company that has the experience of partnering with luxury properties is a must, in order to prevent yourself from being let down from the lack of personalization and amenities. This important characteristic of Chicago Property Finders differentiates us from our competitors; we know the luxury leasing marketing inside and out, which means we will be able to help you find the best deal on the perfect property that fits your needs.

2. Our Agents Put You First

With every move, you will be confronted with challenges, and our agents genuinely love to work through these challenges to create new opportunities for our clients. They are trained to know every aspect of the 100+ buildings we partner with, as well as their cultural personalities and characteristics. They will share with you the inside scoop on the diverse neighborhoods, including their honest opinion of whether the area is a good fit for you and your family. They can provide information about any building that is shown, including information about the proximity to important points of interest, such as:

  • Grocery Stores / Shopping
  • Restaurants / Bars
  • Highway / Lake Shore Drive Access
  • Movie Theaters / Music Venues
  • Public Transportation

3. Complimentary & Efficient Service

Because of our partnerships with 100+ buildings throughout the city, we are able to provide our valuable and efficient service to you, at no charge. We will fine tune a search from our vast inventory of luxury properties that match your specific criteria, finding you your dream luxury apartment as fast as possible.

4. Relocation: Our Specialty

We specialize in helping professionals and families relocate due to job, employment, and family changes. Relocating, as opposed to just moving, has more challenges involved than simply moving inside the same city. We also offer corporate relocation services, including remote rental options, free pick-up, guided virtual tours, and more. Don’t do your relocation alone; call the experts at Chicago Property Finders to guide you through the process. We have written a blog post to help you, called “Relocation to Chicago.” To learn more, click here.

Chicago Property Finders Process

Our process is what makes us unique and what defines us as the premier luxury apartment rental company in Chicago. Unlike our competitors and most other apartment rental companies that will treat you like a number, we take a different approach, a personal approach.

1. We Get to Know You

It all starts with you. Many of our clients find us on Yelp, Facebook, or Google. Upon hearing from you, we will start by getting to know you. Then, we will ask you questions to help us define what you imagine as a perfect Chicago luxury rental property (unit size, whether the unit is pet-friendly, if parking is available, whether there’s a washer and dryer in-unit, etc.). This will include establishing your “must-haves” versus your “like-to-haves;” this will give us an in-depth understanding of your top priorities for helping you find the right property.

2. The Search Begins

Once your agent has identified your top priorities, referred to internally as the “Big Five,” they will then search their vast database to find some premium properties they think you will love.  Their focus will be to find properties that will most relate to your lifestyle and what you are looking for.  

The agent will then contact you with the properties to ensure that units are available and fit within price range.

After the search is completed, a comprehensive email will be sent to you detailing the properties that we think are best fits.  You’ll then be asked to return a short list of properties that stand out to you and that you would like to see in-person. We recommend seeing at least 3-5 properties so you can observe a diversity of locations, amenities, and design styles.

3. It’s Show Time!

To begin the showings, we will pick you up and/or meet you at the first property of a showing schedule, and then continue as a chauffeur to all the properties, returning you at the end and back to your destination. We’ll schedule back-to-back showings to best leverage your time and establish urgency in the process, ensuring that you can make a timely decision.

Upon completion of the showing schedule, you’ll have a lot of things on your mind and our agents want to make it easy as possible for you to make a decision. Our agents will often take photos of the units and send them to you following your tour to help you remember each unit, and they will be available to advise you should you find difficulty making a decision. It’s recommended to wait no longer than 48 hours to make a decision, as in the competitive Chicago luxury apartment market, waiting longer than this could cause you to lose the unit.
