Luxury Living Chicago has been helping clients find luxury apartments in Chicago for many years. We are an established rental-focused brokerage and we know how to create the perfect search strategy for downtown Chicago apartments.

Finding Chicago luxury rentals is simple when our clients have a defined search criteria including a budget, move date and a short-list of must-haves for their new apartment home.

When clients looking for luxury Chicago apartments first contact us for assistance, we ask very detailed questions to help tailor a search

Here are a few sample questions Luxury Living Chicago will ask when you contact us to help with your apartment search:

When is Your Move Date?

Move date is important because apartment availability changes daily (yes, daily!). This is especially important during peak apartment season (spring and summer). As apartments come on and off the market, we do not want to waste YOUR time showing you units that aren’t available for your move date.

What is Your Price Range?

Price is very important. It will dictate everything from the size of your apartment to the building and neighborhood in which you live. Use our FREE Chicago rent calculator to determine your ideal budget for a downtown Chicago apartment. 

Do You Have Pets?

Not all properties allow pets, specifically dogs. If you have a dog (especially a large dog), this may limit the buildings and available apartments to choose from.

Do You Have a Roommate?

Not all two bedrooms are created equally. If you are living with a roommate, you’ll want enclosed walls, equal sized bedrooms and a split floor plan for privacy.

The Luxury Living Chicago team is very knowledgeable about downtown Chicago apartments – from what’s included in the rent down to individual floor plans, unit layouts and views. This ensures our clients are touring the right properties and not wasting precious time and energy.

Before you begin your search for luxury apartments in Chicago, it’s important to think about what you are looking for in your next home. Be prepared to discuss your apartment search at length so Luxury Living Chicago can listen to your wants and needs, assess your search criteria and create and implement a successful search strategy.
