Landlords: How to Maximize Your Rental Income in Chicago, Il

Marketing your property for rent includes a vital component: Selecting a Listing Price.

This amount must reflect the property’s fair market value. Because most of the activity on your home occurs in the first few weeks, it is essential to determine the magic rental price from the start.

Our pricing strategies will maximize your rental revenue and minimize your property’s market time. 

In order to recommend a listing price, our landlord specialists analyze the fair market value of properties in your area.

They closely examine comparable rentals and overall market trends while considering the unique characteristics of your property that may impact, and even increase, its value.

The art of pricing combines intelligent analysis of statistical data with our landlord specialists’ vast experience and intimate knowledge of current rental markets.


We provide only top quality images, as we fully understand the importance of first impressions resonating with potential renters and buyers.

Professional photos taken by our on-staff photographers enhance any home’s appeal and are made all the more attractive by the fact they are COMPLIMENTARY to all of our clients.

We want them to see your listing and subsequently, want to see more of your property! 


Standout Marketing & Showings Our in-house professional photographers & graphic designers create superior marketing materials to showcase your property.

Our photography service is free to all of our clients. We schedule and conduct showings with all prospective tenants interested in viewing your property.

If a property is already tenant-occupied, we are particularly respectful of tenant rights and provide ample notice. 

Conduct Background Checks & Prepare Lease Documents We perform extensive background and criminal checks on all applicants.

We review these background checks with you and offer our recommendations (when appropriate) so that you can make an informed decision on whether to approve an application.

Once you approve the applicant(s), we will prepare the lease agreement, disclosures and numerous other legally-required documents.

We oversee the lease signing and collect the security deposit (if applicable) and first month’s rent. 


Our property management departmental structure ensures accountability, availability and responsiveness.

While you will be assigned one primary point of contact, a Property Manager, you will be supported behind the scenes by layers of professionals.

We are readily available and on call for emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Additionally, we pride ourselves in responding to tenant and owner inquiries & maintenance requests in a very timely manner. 


Our online rent payment system simplifies payment for tenants, resulting in more effective and timely collection of rent.

We direct deposit the monthly rental income into our owners’ bank accounts, ensuring they receive funds efficiently. 


We include 2 free hours of labor each month provided by our licensed and insured handymen.

For more complex issues we have an extensive rolodex of trusted and reliable contractors. 


Tenant Retention – Minimize Vacancies & Maximize Investments If tenant turnover is needed, we prepare a rental analysis, advising landlords on current rental market value before placing a property on the market.

We also begin the process of locating replacement tenants well in advance, ensuring there is minimal to no downtime between tenants, which in turn maximizes the return on our owners’ investments. 

Move-In And Move-Out Inspections Our property managers conduct thorough move-in and move-out inspections, assessing potential tenant damages and any turnover repairs or improvements needed.
