Trader Bill’s experience renting with David Nadler

I’ve frequently cautioned renters about the pitfalls of working with the rental services that I call bedbugs based on their toxic behavior toward renters.

City Ranch Real Estate’s David Nadler had been hired to rent a home for someone with whose business I’d known and thought well of for many years. After meeting David in the course of shooting a sponsored video for that home, he asked whether I’d be interested in hearing the story of one of the clients he’d helped rent a new home. Since David had a serious background in commercial real estate and a reference from a long-standing client’s employee, I said “sure.”

David and I met his client, Bill, in Nookie’s Too on Halsted St for this video. Bill, a trader, was a sophisticated and demanding renter who looked at dozens of places and made offers on a number of them before finding a home that he’s enjoyed.

The takeaway I’d recommend from this video is the one I’ve always recommended: skip the rental services and find a real estate agent with a traditional brokerage background when you’re looking to rent in Chicago.
