YoChicago knows some very good landlords, some of the city’s best. The properties they manage range from vintage walk-ups to the newest luxury high-rises. We know them because they’re current or former YoChicago advertisers. We’ve been in their buildings, met their staff and informally debriefed residents about their experience living in the buildings. We’d recommend them to prospective renters without hesitation, and would rent “site-unseen” with confidence at their properties.
If you’re looking to rent near Chicago’s lakefront, from the South Loop north to Rogers Park, visit our 2016 list of Chicago’s best landlords. We’ve recently updated the list to reflect management changes at a number of properties.
We’ve also expanded the list to include Wirtz Residential. Wirtz has more than 80 years of residential ownership and management expertise in the Chicago area, and dozens of properties in prime near-lakefront locations. We recently visited five Wirtz properties in Lakeview: 2970 N Sheridan, 529-41 W Wellington, 535 W Cornelia & 634 W Stratford, 3000 N Sheridan and 422-24 W Melrose.
You can tour furnished model studios at 422 W Melrose and 535 W Cornelia in the above videos. You’ll find video tours of more than 50 Lakeview apartments at our YouTube playlist, and more are in the works.
