In Lincoln Park, apartment finders are for apartment losers

If you’re looking for an apartment in Lincoln Park and working with an apartment finder a/k/a locator a/k/a rental service, you are absolutely certain to lose out on some of the neighborhood’s best apartments.

The Lincoln Park apartment market is tight this season, and a number of major property owners and managers in the neighborhood are not paying commissions to finders and will not allow them to show apartments.

If you want to ensure that you’re seeing the widest selection of Lincoln Park apartments – and the best apartments – you need to contact landlords directly. YoChicago makes it easy for you to do that.

You’ll find links to more than 80 building websites on our Lincoln Park at-a-glance apartment list. The list has links to near real-time rent and availability info for nearly 4 dozen of those buildings, and links to YoChicago video tours of twenty of them. We have detailed, objective reviews online for 21 of the buildings, and our oat-a-glance list links first to the reviews, where you’ll find links to the buildings.

Three-quarters of the buildings on the list are managed by just a half-dozen companies.

  • BJB Properties
  • Jerome H Meyer & Co
  • Lakeview Associates
  • Planned Property
  • Realty & Mortgage
  • Reside Living
  • We may have inadvertently omitted a few buildings from the list, and we’ve deliberately omitted a number that we’ve heard are very poorly managed.

    If you like our lists, pass them along to a friend who’s looking for an apartment. If you have suggestions for making the lists more useful, leave a comment.
