Matchmaking is the practice of bringing two people together typically with the hopes the match will result in a marriage. At Luxury Living Chicago, we definitely dabble in matchmaking. We want to match our clients with the right real estate broker to assist with their downtown Chicago apartment search.

We always partner our clients with a professional and licensed real estate broker or leasing agent once a client has scheduled a time to tour with our company. Besides seeing who is available to work with a client on the day of the showing, there are definitely other factors for determining which agent a client will be paired with.

Our brokers are all dynamic individuals with a wealth of knowledge about the downtown Chicago apartment market. While our agents can easily accompany any client, they each have their own niche or specialties, which may make them better suited to help one client over another.

Here’s more about our team and their experience:
