I am relocating to Chicago from New York City and had only 2 days on-the-ground to find an apartment. I worked with Tyler and he made the process so easy. He was great about listening to what I was looking for and finding great options to show me and I ended up finding the perfect place (which is saying something because I can be very demanding and a little neurotic). I was dreading this process, but it ended up being the easiest part of moving. I would absolutely recommend that anyone moving to or within Chicago give Tyler a call. It's going to make your life so much easier!
My five star rating goes all to Tyler! He was amazing! I was looking for a new apartment and browsing Padmapper. I sent an email inquiring about an apartment. I promptly (like with 5 minutes) got a call from Tyler Saint Germain. He asked for 5 minutes to help find the best apt. and mentioned he had others like the one I was inquiring about. He asked a few questions and then sent me a listing of several apartments, some of which weren't even listed on the sites like Padmapper. I told him the ones I was interested in and he contacted all properties and setup showings for the same day, we spent a couple hours and saw several places. In addition he's very easy to talk with and be around. He made what is usually a crappy day light and fun, he asked several important questions to the properties that I hand't thought to ask and talked everything out with me from the different properties, to personal likes, bang for my buck, etc! I lived in New York for 3 years and moved 5 times, I've now been in Chicago 4 years and moved 3 times and working with Tyler has been the best! I will definitely be using him again in the future (if I move, which might not happen as I really like my new place!!).
I'm moving to Chicago for a new job and Nick helped me find my first apartment. He had great knowledge of the area, was very accommodating, and gave great advice about things to consider in looking for an apartment. I loved all the places he showed me, and appreciated how he helped guide conversation with leasing managers. He was very friendly and very professional and I really appreciated his help and expertise.
Homescout Realty reached out to me within twelve hours of registering on their website - it was a welcomed change from the dozens of landlords who ignored my roommate's and my calls. We were paired with Tyler Saint Germain. Tyler was very professional, accessible and clearly communicated every step in this process to us. Within a couple of weeks, he managed to find us an apartment well below budget that hit everything on our wish list. I definitely recommend working with Homescout Realty, with Tyler as your realtor. All parties involved made finding my first apartment a quick and smooth process!
My girlfriend and I just moved to Chicago September 1st and we used Jeremy Jackson as a resource for finding an apartment. I spoke with several agencies and worked with two other brokers besides Jeremy. Hands down, Jeremy was the best. One agency sent me a daily generic e-mail listing of subpar units that I would never rent. The second brokers’ units weren’t bad but they weren’t even close to the quality of units that Jeremy showed us. I initially reached out to Jeremy in the middle of July and had a 30-minute detailed phone call about the ideal apartment for my GF and I. A few days before signing our lease, my girlfriend and I then had a follow up skype call with Jeremy. This is where Jeremy separates himself from others. He showed us listings, google street views, he would show us how far the closest L stop was on the googlemaps. He would show us all the bars, restaurants and shops around each unit. He would tell us things he enjoyed in those areas and neighborhoods. For people who were moving to a new city they had never been to, he was incredible at giving us a great idea of what was available and what to expect in every neighborhood of Chicago. He nailed our apartment. I have been her for a month and am in love with my neighborhood, my location and the apartment itself. Jeremy took the time to listen to exactly what me and my GF were hoping to find. He knew exactly what we wanted and for our price. Moving 1,000 miles away is incredibly stressful and having to find a new place to live is a big reason. Jeremy showed us several units in a few neighborhoods and we liked all of them. The hard part was deciding where we wanted to live. Even then Jeremy sat with us at a starbucks, wrote out the bills, rent, parking, utilities, etc. We had side by side detailed comparisons and he helped us think of pros and cons for what we needed. He then would add his two sense on what he felt was a priority as someone who actually lived in the city. He just puts the effort in and it shows in his results. Which is your home. I would highly recommend Jeremy for anyone in need of a realtor/broker in the Chicago area.
